We found Anne's White Columns Inn to be a fine place to stay in a great walk-to location in Bar Harbor. The room size was good, and it had reasonable amenities. The breakfast was fine - nothing so special but nicely presented and plenty of food.
Our stay at the Ivy Manor Inn is the kind of memorable experience you want on vacation. Comfortable and lovely best describes our stay from the innkeepers and staff to the room, garden, and restaurant. Attention to detail without fussiness. We enjoyed a freshly prepared breakfast every morning. We slept in one day because it was raining and breakfast was delivered to the room. That set the tone for the day; we stayed in and talked, read, sipped coffee, then wine. It was the kind of day that you hope to have at a B & B. How surprising that a rainy day improved the vacation! The ambiance of the inn is enhanced by a small fine dining restaurant; Michelle’s. We enjoyed creative well-presented entrees featuring fresh seafood and local produce. In my opinion, the meals far exceeded other restaurant offerings in the area in terms of quality, price, and service.
This cozy, quiet inn is a 10 minute drive from Bar Harbor and Acadia National Park. We just loved eating breakfast or relaxing on the porch with the view of the ocean (make sure you make your way down to explore the beach!), and listening to the birds singing in the garden. Comfy beds, too:) Enjoy!
Great place to stay in Bar Harbor. Beautiful Inn, very cozy and inviting. Loved the room and the comfortable bed. The perfect location, in town yet quiet and in a beautiful location by the harbor. Wonderful breakfast and a great place to be.
Stayed in Bear Cottage. Very clean and comfortable. The hosts were wonderful and Jack spent a good 10 minutes one morning with me personally outlining on a map some of the great sights we should see while in Acadia. Breakfast was superb. The rocky beach was just awesome and felt like we were in a very unique place. Everything about this place was great.
This beautiful B&B is a hidden treasure. We felt at home from the time we arrived until we left a few days later. We wish we could have stayed longer. The owners, Jeani & Jack and their staff could not have been nicer or more helpful. The house and the rooms we so comfortable and there were many places to just sit and relax with a beautiful view of Frenchmans Bay from the porch. The breakfasts and snacks were delicious & plentiful. It is a long trip from NJ but wellworth the visit.
Although a little hard to find at first, the Ullikana is located in the heart of Bar Harbor; steps from the Marina and center of town. We were immediately impressed by the appearance of the house and delighted that the interior was even prettier. Art plays an important role in Ullikana with sculptures in the gardens and various artists competing for your eye's attention as you enter. An impressive staircase with stained glass windows serves as a beautiful portal to the guest rooms above. A very comfortable bed delays your intended departure, but not by much, as you know a delicious al fresco breakfast awaits you out back. We never left the table wanting for more. In the late afternoon, wine and snacks awaited you outside where you could take off hunger's edge and reflect, privately or with other guests, on the day's truly spectacular events. Helene and Roy are the consummate hosts, providing warmth, and guidance for a great meal or another fun event. I also have to give out a shout to Syd, who works the evening and greeted us on our arrival. We were made to feel as special, welcomed guests in their remarkable home. I'd go back!
Our stay at the Ullikana was lovely. The Inn was gorgeous, the breakfasts were phenomenal. The one disappointment we had was that our mattress was uncomfortable, though otherwise we liked our room well enough (room 4). The location can't be beat, right on the water just a step from the "downtown" area. We would stay here again.
Jack und Jean sind wunderbare Gastgeber. Die Anlage ist wunderschön und liebevoll gepflegt und liegt etwas außerhalb in einem kleinen ruhigen Wäldchen in ca. 5-7min Autominuten von Bar Harbour entfernt. Die Zimmer im oberen Geschoss sind etwas größer haben einen eigenen Balkon und vom Bett kann man die Sonne aufgehen sehen. In der Anlage gibt es einen kleinen Pool und auch eine Sauna. Es gibt einen kleinen eigenen "Beach" zu dem man über eine Treppe an den Klippen hinabsteigt und einen sehr netten Aussichtsplatz oberhalb der Klippen. Von dort kann man entspannt den Sonnenaufgang und Ruhe genießen.Jack's Empfang ist sehr warm und seine Empfehlungen sehr hilfreich. Jean zaubert ein liebevolles Frühstück. Wir haben unseren Aufenthalt sehr genossen und kommen gerne wieder
Anne's White Column Inn was a lovely place to stay, but I would make sure to splurge for a room with a balcony because the extra space is almost necessary because regular rooms are very cozy. The owners and staff were very pleasant and the food is delicious. Not a modern place, and could use a design update. The facilities were very clean and the yard well manicured. Easy to walk to town, and in a safe neighborhood.
Our room was just beautiful and the bed was heavenly. We were in the Winston Churchill suite on the 1st floor and noise was not an issue whatsoever. Breakfast was superb and late serving time was appreciated. Susan and Barry were so personable and easy to talk to, it was nice talking to them and all of the other guests in the house. You can't beat the location either...walking distance to lots of shops and dining and a quick drive to Acadia. We will most certainly be back for a much longer stay next time!
My boyfriend and I stayed two nights in Witchcliff and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. We appreciated the information Kathy had to offer about downtown Bar Harbor. We also were able to attend one of the cocktail hours before heading into town for dinner. It was nice to meet some of the other guests and relax on the porch. As for the room, we didn't spend much time in the room other than to sleep, but there was plenty of room for our luggage and for us to relax during downtime. I would definitely recommend staying at Anne's White Columns Inn. It was affordable and provided wonderful accommodations.
My husband and I recently stayed at the Inn and found everything about it exceptional! The rooms were super clean and comfortable, you felt like you were home. The views were incredible. The Inn is tucked into the cliffs of Bar Harbor so the quiet, calm, and grounded by nature feelings abound. The grounds were teaming with flowers and beautifully maintained. The breakfasts were delicious, and eating outside on their expansive back deck made everything taste that much better. While eating breakfast one morning we even spotted a seal out in the water! The staff were equally as fabulous as the Inn itself. Jack the owner, was filled with interesting facts, stories, and suggestions about the island. His dog Pearly greeted us every morning and was a welcome sight for my husband and I who left our pets at home and were missing them. We will absolutely be back to stay with Jack and Jeany again. What a fantastic home away from home.
