Great B&B

5 su aprile 10, 2016

Delicious and hearty breakfasts and the owners are very knowledgeable about the best hiking spots. Our dog also enjoyed her stay :) we will be back!

We loved this sweet place!!

5 su aprile 05, 2016

It was "off-season" but Martha and Tim were happy to take us in along with our dog, Avery! We felt very fortunate! The room was clean, quiet, and comfortable! We slept well after walking to a great dinner by the water. Tim cooked us a delicious breakfast of blueberry pancakes, roasted grapefruit, and bacon! Thank you!

Great Stay in Bar Harbor!

4,8 su gennaio 06, 2016

We absolutely loved our stay at the Canterbury Cottage. The house is adorable, the rooms were cute and clean, and the food was wonderful. Tim and Martha are great hosts and made us feel right at home. We brought our puppy with us - usually when we take him places, saying "dogs allowed" means "dogs are tolerated, but we do not want to see or hear them." Martha kept encouraging me to let him explore, play with her dogs, etc., and it let us relax knowing that she didn't think our dog was a nuisance. If we head back up to Maine, we will definitely stay there again!

Great stay

We had a great stay at the Canterbury Cottage B&B. The room was cozy, yet had exactly what we needed. I appreciated the fact that toiletries such as shampoo/conditioner and body wash were provided for our use. The breakfast we had every morning was amazing! Each day we had a delicious, hot meal that kept us going through the day. We also enjoyed the mid-afternoon snack of cookies or brownies when we dropped back in. We would definitely stay again.

Fantastic B&B

5 su settembre 29, 2015

Honestly cannot fault the Canterbury Cottage. Hosts were extremely friendly and welcoming. Great location just a few minutes walk from the Maine street in Bar Harbor. Breakfast was amazing, something different and special everyday. Loved Clinton the Labrador! Very dog friendly B&B. Would definitely recommend Canterbury Cottage to anyone staying in beautiful Bar Harbor, will definitely be back again.

Very enjoyable stay

5 su settembre 04, 2015

The room was very quaint. The extra amenities were over the top from a dish of good chocolates to full size bottles of body lotion, quality shampoo and even lavender spray for your pillow. The bathroom had a very comfortable jacuzzi tub to relax in.

Fantastic stay in beautiful Bar Harbor

5 su agosto 22, 2015

The B&B could not have been better. Great location just a few minutes walk from the Main Street. Our hosts made us feel very welcome, letting us know about the area. The breakfasts were fantastic, something delicious and different every day. Also loved Clinton the Labrador! Would definitely recommend The Canterbury Cottage to anyone coming to Bar Harbor. We will definitely stay there again!

A Perfect Visit

5 su giugno 03, 2015

We recently stayed at Canterbury Cottage while visiting Acadia National Park for my husband's 40th birthday. We found this B&B on since we wanted to bring our dog along. Everything about our stay was outstanding. Martha & Tim are lovely people with sweet dogs who are very knowledgeable about the area. The location is wonderful, just a few blocks away from the main street. The room was lovely, and the breakfast provided was incredibly delicious. We will definitely return!

Amazing place!

5 su maggio 27, 2015

This is the perfect place for a weekend getaway to Acadia! Me and my boyfriend stayed in the look book room which was lovely, very clean bathroom the COMFIEST bed I've ever had the pleasure of sleeping in at any bed and breakfast or hotel, and a cute little balcony. They allow dogs here too and have some lovely friendly pups of their own! it's only a few minutes to the great shops, restaurants and to Acadia! Martha and Tim are great hosts and are willing to do anything to make your stay the best it can be! They serve breakfast every morning at 8 and it isn't just your everyday bacon and eggs... Martha treated us to baked pear cobbler, an amazing quiche and more! you can't go wrong with this place! I'd suggest it to anyone :)

Great Place to Stay

4,4 su maggio 21, 2015

We stayed here because they accept pets. We will stay here again because we really like the place. Canterbury Cottage is a typical cute B&B with the additional feature of great hosts. Our arrival included a house tour and local information. All of the host family are very nice and helpful - in general nice folks. The B&B is within easy walking distance of all of downtown Bar Harbor.

New England B&B Experience Exceeded Expectations

4,0 su maggio 18, 2015

Our family was excited to experience a New England B&B and we were not disappointed. Tim and Martha provided valuable insight to local restaurants, hiking, and day trips. The house is in a good location to town and the breakfasts provided were very good. Without hesitation, I would recommend to others.

Two Day Get Away

4,2 su aprile 26, 2015

My husband and I were looking for a pet friendly bed and breakfast that would accommodate our dogs, and we found Cantebury Cottages. The bed and breakfast was amazing! It was in a great location, everything was in walking distance, and the owners were very welcoming. The rooms are spacious and lovely, and the bathrooms are clean and just big enough. The breakfast was delicious, and they will accommodate for any dietary restrictions, my husband and I are paleo and they made pancakes for us. Overall I would recommend this b&b to anyone, and great news, they offer military discounts. The husband is a retired coast guardsmen. I would definitely say stay here if you get the chance!


5 su marzo 26, 2015

Tim the owner was the nicest person I've met in a few years. He was genuinely interested in helping us have the best experience in terms of dining, activities and breakfast in the morning. When we told him (in passing) we were interested in touring Acadia National Park, he drew us a map of the best routes, where to go and what to see. I've already recommended this place to friends of mine. I'd love to return!

Laid back

3,8 su febbraio 05, 2015

Martha and Tim were very relaxed and helpful. We have enjoyed our days at Canterbury Cottage. We took the Look Nook: the room was fine and clean. The shower was a bit cramped. Overall: great time!

Will be back

4,8 su gennaio 14, 2015

Very nice stay. Would recommend.

My wife and I stayed here in August 2014. The host/inn were welcoming and the location is convenient to the shops & restaurants of Bar Harbor. Off-street parking is a bit tight but manageable.

Brief stay

2,2 su novembre 13, 2014

My partner and I stayed at the Canterbury Cottage B&B on November 9, 2014 in the Garden Room. Room was a bit below expectation - small and clean, but no A/C which could be a problem in the summer. Shower stall was extremely tiny with a shower head producing a single stream of water (instead of shower). It also had a strange height adjustment system. I bigger size person would not be able to fit in the stall for sure. There were no soap bars to use but partially filled (about 1/4 to 1/3 filled) bottles of hand and body wash instead. There room was rather noisy in the night and in the morning. We were woke up by a person arriving to the room next door to us in the middle in the night and morning traffic from upstairs. What really surprised us was a lack of some sort of food available in the morning. There were boxes of cereals on the counter and a coffee machine - that's all. No any baked goods or bread. Breakfast supposed to be served between 9 and 10 AM only. We waited hungry until 9 AM and decided to go to a local bakery instead. We weren't expecting the owners to be super friendly but they could have been more interactive.

Canterbury Cottage

5 su novembre 06, 2014

We had a great visit to Bar Harbor and that was certainly aided by our stay at Canterbury Cottage.

Wonderful weekend

5 su ottobre 30, 2014

This was our first trip to New England & it couldn't have been more memorable. This, in no small part, is due to our stay at Canterbury Cottage. The hosts were gracious and welcoming. They were there when we needed advice or had a question. The house dogs are adorable. The house is located close enough to town to make walking everywhere possible but far enough away from the cruise ship crowds to be serene. Do yourself a favor & stay here! We stayed in the Sun Island room but will likely book the Cottage Room next time to have a larger bathing facility.

Great B&B close to downtown!

3,8 su ottobre 29, 2014

We loved our stay at Canterbury Cottage- it's within walking distance to the downtown area, the room was very nice, and breakfast was delicious- what more can you ask for?

Canterbury Cottage B&B

5 su settembre 17, 2014

My parents were the guests at Canterbury Cottage B&B. They have had nothing but very positive and highly favorable discussion about their stay. They were made to feel at home, the house was clean, comfortable and very inviting. The owners were great; the food, they reported was fabulous. Would love to go myself.

Canterbury Review

3,4 su settembre 15, 2014

Tim and Martha are outstanding hosts, very friendly, very helpful with restaurants, things to do, places to go and see. Have snacks and beverages available all the time, also can hang out in the living room to review menus, hiking trail books, etc. The only negative we had was the size of the bathroom in the Look Nook room, it was very small. No counter or sink space to get ready, very small mirror above the sink, very small sink, very small shower.

Canterbury Cottage- good value, nice location

3,4 su settembre 15, 2014

My 3-night stay at Canterbury Cottage was satisfying. The location is convenient to the shops and restaurants and only a few minutes' walk from the waterfront. The room was well-decorated and very clean. Talking with the other guests over very good home-made breakfasts was a great pleasure. I also appreciated having tea and coffee always available in the breakfast room. Mrs. Searchfield and her daughter were friendly and helpful with suggestions for activities in Bar Harbor. The big dog was super friendly. Tim seemed to be in a bad mood and should have either stayed in bed or tried to be friendly- thus 2 stars for service.

Great location

3,6 su settembre 14, 2014

Location was great but parking horrible! They had us park partially on their walkway and dangerously close to another vehicle. Charming, but owners were not overly friendly.

Felt like home

3,4 su agosto 30, 2014

Very cozy and warm stay. Owners very helpful, informative and welcoming. We enjoyed our stay and would highly recommend it to anybody, especially dog lovers.

Really great B&B

4,0 su agosto 25, 2014

This is a great B&B, within walking distance to shops and entertainment. Tim & Martha were great hosts, and gave input each day on places to visit. They also made some fantastic recommendations for dinner - we were not disappointed in their choices. I would recommend their establishment to anyone visiting Bar Harbor. Oh yes - Clinton and Ellie May were the cutest dogs as well.

Lovely stay in a perfect location

4,6 su agosto 24, 2014

Canterbury Cottage is a quaint, cosy, period home/B&B, offering excellent value in its ideal location for visiting Bar Harbor and its environs. Tim & Martha are hospitable hosts, more than willing to share their knowledge of the area, and providing delicious breakfasts to give a good start to the day. We look forward to being able to stay there again.

Delightful stay at Canterbury Cottage!

5 su agosto 22, 2014

We went to Canterbury Cottage for our honeymoon. DELIGHTFUL stay, will be returning we LOVED it there. They are sweet and helpful but non-obtrustive. The food is phenomenal and they are so welcoming. Rooms have AC are spotless and have private bathrooms! We LOVED our stay and will return! They even surprised us with a bottle of champagne for our honeymoon!

A wonderful vacation

4,8 su agosto 14, 2014

We had never been to Bar Harbor, and Tim and Martha couldn't have been more helpful! They let us borrow their guidebooks and maps, set us up with dinner reservations at one of their favorite restaurants, and told us a lot about hidden gems and off the beaten path places for us to get lobster, hike, and explore the island. The house is in a perfect location for walking into the main part of Bar Harbor to eat, shopping, or gaze out at the beautiful views. The rooms were clean and cozy, and we slept so well in the comfy beds with the windows open! Coming from Atlanta, it was a nice change to have the fresh Maine air circulating our room. The breakfasts were delicious and we met a lot of nice couples. We can't say enough about this wonderful cottage, and hope to come back soon!

Great location, great breakfast!

5 su agosto 12, 2014

My husband and I stayed for 5 nights for our 20th anniversary. This was our first bed and breakfast and we were not disappointed. Canterbury Cottage is located blocks from downtown and the Village Green (central Island Explorer pick-up location). Each morning we were treated to a different, fabulous breakfast. Everyone was very friendly and helpful. We would definitely stay here again.

no complaints!

5 su agosto 11, 2014

can't think of one negative thing to say about our stay here: -convenient location (easily walkable to downtown bar harbor); -clean and comfortable room with a nice bathroom (we stayed in the cottage room); -delicious full breakfasts (blueberry pancakes!); -lots of guidebooks on hand, as well as to-do suggestions from the owners; -very reasonable prices; -pet friendly. the two dogs who live here are sweet and friendly. they are often out of sight, but if you don't like animals, this isn't the right place for you -- because you probably will see them occasionally. i consider having dogs on-site to be a huge plus to any establishment ... reminded me of home!

Low key/unpretentious B&B

4,4 su agosto 11, 2014

Every B&B is different and Canterbury Cottage is not the exception. This was the first B&B we stayed at were pets were openingly welcomed. However, the house was clean, neat, and contained no evidence that several pets were in residence with us. While the innkeepers had two dogs, they were well behaved, stayed off the furniture, did not bark or come to the breakfast table. Our innkeeper was friendly, helpful and an excellent cook. He even dried our clothes when we got drenched in a late afternoon shower while we were in Acadia National Park. We throughly enjoyed our stay and recommend Canterbury Cottage if you want a low key B&B when you visit Acadia National Park & Bar Harbor.

Almost fine

3,2 su agosto 09, 2014

Room was charming, inn conveniently located, but the hosts were difficult and not terribly friendly. I tried to be polite by calling ahead and to say that we would be checking in on the later side of the check in window, and the owner told me to hurry because he had evening plans. The following morning we got a knock on our bedroom door an hour before check out, with the owner asking us to check out immediately because he had to go somewhere...

Great B&B!! One of the most comfy beds ever. They also let us bring our dog!

Awesome stay!

5 su luglio 17, 2014

Our stay at Canterbury Cottage was a great time. Super convenient location, cute room- stayed in the Look Nook, and delicious breakfast. We would definitely return!

Wonderful stay in a wonderful location

5 su luglio 13, 2014

For this trip my boyfriend and I had camped for a few days, then spent our last two nights at Canterbury Cottage in order to be comfortable, clean, and well fed before we headed back home. I am so glad we chose to stay at Canterbury Cottage, because it was clean, centrally located, comfortable, and cost about as much as a regular hotel room. The owners were ready to help with anything that we may need, and I even had a wonderful conversation about literature with Martha while she was making breakfast. I used to work in Bar Harbor, so I'm very familiar with the area and didn't need suggestions for things to do or places to eat. That said, I watched the other guests get really great advice for things to do and places to eat while I was there, and they all came back very satisfied with their day's activities. They're only two blocks away from the shops and restaurants, and are on a side street where parking is much easier (parking gets harder to manage in the summer, but in late June it's still not too bad). I loved the amenities, the olive oil/vinegar samples they left for us, and my boyfriend said that he liked the pillow mist they put on the linens. The bathroom is smaller, so expect that, but don't be put off by it. It is still more than enough room to do everything you need to. Lastly, the breakfast was amazing both mornings we were there. Balsamic berries and an inventive eggs Benedict one morning, stuffed french toast and roasted grapefruit the next. I cannot stress enough that anyone staying here needs to make sure they're downstairs for breakfast. It is so delicious. Everything was perfect. Thanks Tim and Martha! Everyone else: go to Bar Harbor, and stay at the Canterbury Cottage. It's worth it.

Great location and awesome friendly atmosphere

5 su luglio 11, 2014

Tim and Martha did everything possible to make our stay was very comfortable. The house is very clean and everything was just perfect. Great Job to them... keep up the great work!!!

Canterbury Stay

3,8 su luglio 11, 2014

Enjoyed meeting the different people that stayed in the house. Nice breakfast.

Great spot for dog-loving travelers

4,4 su luglio 08, 2014

Innkeepers demonstrated exceptional flexibility and accommodations. We arrived earlier than stated check-in time, but they had the doors open and made sure we felt welcome. Location is excellent, with Bar Island, Main Street, the free shuttle to Acadia National Park, and numerous other quaint streets and shops within walking distance. Coffee and other beverages always available, as well as snacks. Innkeepers were great references on local activities and had numerous local publications/references for guest perusal for planning adventures. Well-behaved, socialized dogs allowed to roam the house off-leash along with the innkeepers' dogs while we were on-premise--a treat after most B&Bs require dogs in crates or on leashes at all times. Great spot to stay.

Great location

4,6 su luglio 07, 2014

We enjoyed our stay at the Canterbury Cottage. It is well located a few blocks from the center of Bar Harbor and near to the bus stop where busses go around the area including Acadia. The breakfast was delicious. We had baked pears and a huge stack of pancakes! Our room, the Look Nook, while beautifully decorated, was a tight squeeze. Try to get one of the other rooms.

First timer at a B & B. Wow.

5 su luglio 07, 2014

My two night stay at Canterbury Cottage exceeded expectations. Martha and Tim are very warm and welcoming hosts--and terrific cooks. The cottage feels like a part of the islands history while offering very contemporary and comfortable accommodations. Once I parked my car out front, I was able to leave it there and see everything I wanted to see on foot. However, I heard Tim and/or Martha educating other residents about island features and the best way to find them. I stayed in the pet friendly room, which, except for a sturdy bedspread, was as lovely as any other. Although I was with a very small dog, I would not have had to worry if I had been with a larger dog that opted to sneak onto the bed while I was sleeping. If I ever return to Bar Harbor, I know where I will be staying.

Great stay at Cantebury Cottage!!

4,4 su luglio 04, 2014

We recently spent 4 days up in Bar Harbor, ME and stayed at the lovely Cantebury Cottage B&B. We'd spent a while researching places, and finally settled on Cantebury Cottage because of their reviews, proximity to Acadia National Park and the fact that they allowed dogs. We were not disappointed! The home is adorable and walking distance to town and the water. When we arrived, Tim and their dog Clinton greeted us at the door with a smile! We instantly felt at home, and Tim offered to let our dog off her leash and explore the house. We stayed in the Sun Island room, which was decent size and had a private bathroom and TV which were great. Delicious breakfasts were served daily by Martha - so good! Tim and Martha both spent time each day going over maps and ideas with us, highlighting routes to take and giving plenty of suggestions. We loved having this home away from home for our quick little vacation. Tim and Martha are wonderful - and so are their dogs!!

Welcoming stay

4,0 su giugno 24, 2014

Coming in as non-bar harbor natives the owners were very helpful and reliable on information regarding the area! Along with the knowledge they offered a wonderful, clean, and comfortable stay at a quite cute bed and breakfast. We would definitely stay here again and will in te future!

A great Bar Harbor place to stay!

3,8 su giugno 24, 2014

We stayed for almost a week in late June and had a fine time! Tim and Martha have a prime location. You're close enough to walk to sights and restaurants but secluded enough for peace and quiet! They do a great job with a creative breakfast menu and are very helpful with tips on various tourist activities. Dogs are welcome, although with the tightly packed neighborhood you'll need to be very attentive to picking up after your puppy.

Walking distance to downtown, wonderful food.

4,4 su giugno 03, 2014

Canterbury Cottage a Home-Away-From-Home Every Visit

4,8 su febbraio 01, 2014

We love the convenience of being able to walk to restaurants, stores, museums, and the shore if the weather isn't cooperating -- even in winter. The best part of staying at Canterbury Cottage is the warm hospitality of Martha, Tim, and their canine assistants, Clinton and Ellie Mae.

Very nice place

4,2 su dicembre 27, 2013

The cottage is in a great location close to everything. Food was excellent and the room was very comfortable.

Always a great stay!

4,4 su novembre 24, 2013

The Canterbury Cottage is always a wonderful getaway destination. Within easy walking distance of all of the shops and stores in Bar Harbor, it makes staying here simple and relaxing. We would come back just for the breakfasts since they are absolutely incredible. Beautiful rooms, wonderful food, and awesome hosts - definitely worth returning to many more times.

Great stay

5 su novembre 17, 2013

This was our first stay in a bed and breakfast and our first time up to Bar Harbor. The Canterbury cottage was perfect. Everything about our stay was amazing. From the advices on places to go and hikes to do, to the phenomenal breakfasts Tim and Martha served. The location was so central to everything and will definetly stay here again when we come back up.

October stay.

Bar Harbor in Sept

4,4 su settembre 21, 2013

During a two week vacation I stayed in a number of B&Bs. This one was at the top of the list. The location was outstanding with parking on site and the ability to walk down town in about 3 min. The room was outstanding and the price was as well. The hosts were attentive but unobtrusive. The breakfasts were tasty and the hosts made a special meal ( blueberry pancakes when I brought in picked blueberries). Oh yes, the bed was comfortable and the house dogs very friendly.

Highly Recommend

Wonderful couple. Great location.

September in Bar Harbor

5 su settembre 14, 2013

We couldn't have asked for a more perfect stay as guests of Martha and Tim and of course EllieMay and Clifford. We felt so at home with them and the location of the B&B is just right. Quiet enough from the downtown activity but yet close enough to stroll to everyday. Very dog-friendly for our little friend as is the whole town of Bar Harbor.

nice two day stay

We spent 2 nights at the Canterbury Cottage as part of a week-long visit to Maine. It is on a quiet street, but is a very short walk to shops and restaurants. The breakfasts were delicious and Martha was very helpful in suggesting places to eat and activities in the area.

Our trip to Maine!

Great stay at the Canterbury Cottage B and B

4,8 su agosto 21, 2013

Wonderful location in Bar Harbor, great hosts, good company, and tasty breakfast. The Look Nook, our room, has a cute porch that overlooks the street and is a great place for a morning cup of coffee. Tim and Martha were great and they had maps, brochures, and details on Acadia and the Bar Harbor area. Highly recommend staying here if you want a reasonable priced place in Bar Harbor "downtown area". If you are over 6 ft., you may want to avoid the Look Nook since the ceiling is short in the shower. Great find!

Wonderful all around

5 su agosto 01, 2013

Canterbury Cottage is nestled on a side street in Bar Harbor within an easy walk of the town. What makes the experience different is the wonderful personal touches of Martha & Tim. A little treat for an afternoon snack, fabulous 5-star breakfast, very nice rooms and the best touring suggestions around. Canterbury Cottage is a wonderful destination that we will go back to often. Bob G.

Would go back again in a heartbeat!

Great location- quiet street, but only 2 blocks to downtown. Lots of restaurants nearby. The rooms are beautiful, updated and clean. Each room has it's own bathroom. The breakfasts are spectacular! Wifi, cable and a/c in each room! Martha is kind, generous and very hospitable!!!

We enjoyed our stay at Canterbury B&B. Martha was very accommodating and gave excellent tips on places and sites to see. Breakfast was delicious and homemade. We would definitely recommend this place and hope to return again in the fall or winter.

Great Bar Harbor Value!

4,2 su giugno 23, 2013

We have stayed here often over the past 3 or so years. Martha is a wonderful host who is eager to make your stay as pleasant as possible. The breakfasts are creative and yummy, and she goes to great lengths to accommodate dietary preferences and restrictions. There is coffee and tea available 24/7, which is nice, especially for those of us who like a cup before bedtime, in the afternoon, or before breakfast in the morning. Freshly baked cookies (or whatever) in the afternoon is a nice touch too, The rooms are fairly small but nicely decorated, with lovely linens. Unlike most B&Bs, there is a small flat screen TV in each room which we almost never used, but which really came in handy the weekend we were up there during a blizzard! With the exception of one of the rooms, the bathrooms are very small and have very small stall showers. If you are a tall or big person, the room with the tub/shower combination may work better for you. Finally, you should like dogs if you are going to stay here, since Martha and Tim's 2 dogs are fixtures around the place and tend to share the sitting room with the guests! We have stayed at 3 other comparably priced B&Bs in Bar Harbor in the same general location as the Canterbury Cottage. For us, the deciding factor as to where to stay was the personalities of the hosts, and Martha and Tim were a good fit for us. We look forward to our next stay with them!

Martha and Tim were outstandings hosts. We thoroughly enjoyed their two dogs, Clinton and Ellie May. The breakfasts were wonderful and much more than we would usually eat. The Inn's location is ideal and just short walk to downtown, and included private parking. The Inn is beautiful and cozy. We would definately stay with Tim and Martha again, and hope to this Fall.

Our return visit was as welcomed and relaxing as the first. Martha and Tim go out of their way to make sure guests' needs are met. Canterbury Cottage is within easy walking distance of nice restaurants, shopping, and shore trails - even on a bitterly cold day in January. It feels like home from the minute we arrive and we'll be back.

A lovely stay right in Bar Harbor

We enjoyed our stay at Canterbury Cottage. We apprecaited their pet friendly policy and their knowledge about things to do with our dog. The room was lovely and the evening snacks and beverage very nice, although we did not eat breakfast at the inn. The location is terrific for walking around the town - easy access to shopping, restaurants and the waterfront.

Bar Harbor Hospitality

4,8 su novembre 10, 2012

Our October visit to Bar Harbor was wonderful. We were greeted as we drove up by Tim (who was painting on the house) and shown our room and the layout of the house. Very comfy and lots of goodies (drinks, snacks, baked goods, etc) for guests to partake. Martha and I sat and visited later about our favorite books and authors as well as good choices for dinner(all within walking distance.) Breakfast the next morning started with yummy baked pears followed by blueberry pancakes--again--yummy! After we spent the day in Acadia, we relaxed in their very user friendly living room before and after dinner. Breakfast the second morning was even better than the first...baked peaches with brie and a tasty filling dish of risotto, sausage, onion and mushrooms--getting us ready for the day ahead. The room was cozy with blankets and quilts to keep us warm on the chilly nights. The shower was small (understandable in putting bathrooms in every bedroom in old character-filled houses!) but we managed just fine, especially with the big towels for our use. Martha and Tim are TRUE innkeepers as they live on the property and were available if we needed anything. Only disappointment was not getting to know their dogs better :) as we had read about Clinton and Ellie Mae in other reviews! Thank you, Martha and Tim for making these Texas folks' first trip to New England, Bar Harbor, and Canterbury Cottage a big success! Kathy and Ken W from Texas

My wife and I had the good fortune to spend three nights here in August during a month-long road trip through all six New England states.

Martha was also an excellent cook, making delicious breakfasts from scratch. Recommended!

We enjoyed our stay at the Canterbury Cottage. Our pets were also warmly welcomed.

Like we were home!

4,6 su ottobre 12, 2012

Our stay at Bar Harbor was the best vacation we ever had. The sites were simply amazing and the people very welcoming. Our stay (3 nites) at Canterbury Cottage B&B made it that much more enjoyable. Martha makes breakfasts like we have never had before... simply divine. The home-like atmosphere and friendly hospitality made for evenings of comfort to reflect on the events and experiences of the day (like digesting LOBSTER!). The "cottage" is an EASY walk to the harbor and shopping areas (a couple of blocks). We will definitely be back to Bar Harbor and when we do go back... we will stay at Canterbury Cottage!!! Thank you Martha and Tim for a great experience. Bill & Julie

Septemeber stay in Bar Harbor

3,6 su ottobre 03, 2012

We really enjoyed Bar Harbor - lots to do , we had exceptional weather. Martha is a delightful hostess, she goes out of her way to provide you with lots of information of what's happening around Bar Harbor. We had a little power outage but we just chalked it up to part of the North East experience.

Nice location, friendly hosts

3,6 su ottobre 02, 2012

Stayed for one night. Location is good, on a street with several other B&B's. Short walk to the main street shops and dining. Short drive to Acadian National Park and Cadillac Mtn. Shower was a bit small, but when you take an old home and turn it into a B&B some limitations are present. All in all a good stay, I would recommend to anyone. Breakfast was great, filling and tasty!

Canterbury Cottage B&B is highly recommended.

Our room was charming and comfortable. The Owners were cheerful and friendly. Breakfast was plentiful and delicious.

Good Times !!!

Puppy escape to Bar Harbor

3,4 su settembre 10, 2012

My husband and I - along with our cockapoo Louie - spent 3 enjoyable nights at the Canterbury Cottage. Martha and Tim and gracious hosts, along with their dogs Clinton and Ellie Mae, who showed our dog a rollicking good time. The inn is small - 4 guest rooms - creating a nice intimate atmosphere where guests share tips for making the most of their time in the area. Breakfasts were good - though I would have loved to enjoy some Maine blueberry pancakes during the trip. The inn is less than a 5-minute walk from the harbor and shopping/restaurants, which was excellent. Definitely recommend!

Great location, price and hosts

4,6 su settembre 10, 2012

Our stay at Canterbury Cottage was sooo comfortable. Martha and Tim are wonderful hosts who went out of their way to assist us with all our questions about things to do...places to see....and eateries. They are so relaxed and outgoing that although you know they answer all these questions all the time...they made us feel we were the first ones to ask! Nice rooms and delicious breakfasts...highly recommended!

This is a great little place to stay in Bar Harbor. It's a quick walk to the downtown areas and a short drive to Acadia. The rooms are very nice and the food is excellent. The blueberry pancakes were extraordinary. Parking can be a little tight but its manageable. The shower in our room was fairly small but still big enough to use. Definitely someplace I'd consider going back to.

My wife and I really enjoyed our stay. There was something different every morning for breakfast and it was always very delicious. Tim and Martha gave us some great advice on hikes in the park, good places for dinner in town, and other activities to consider checking out. The room was a little small (it is a B&B after all), but comfortable and very clean.

Wonderful 2 night stay at Canterbury Cottage in August 2012

5 su agosto 15, 2012

We had never been to Bar Harbor before this visit. We were absolutely delighted with the accommodations and our host and hostess. The breakfasts were superb. The only negative was the heavy fog on the 2nd day which was something our innkeepers could not control. All in all, we had a wonderful stay and highly recommend this B&B.

OMG Wonderful!!

I felt like i was staying with family!! With Giradeli chocolates on the night stand, bed bath and beyond soap, pillow mist, lotion, shampoo and conditioner, and a free (large) sample of the local balsamic vinegar and olive oil, I coluldnt have asked for anything better. Also a wonderful breakfast and always had snacks available.

We had a lovely time at the Canterbury Cottage. A cute room with a balcony, a perfect location right in town, and warm welcomes from Tim, Martha, and their two friendly dogs.

Two course breakfasts with something different every day. Absolutely delicious. Highly recommended!

Great Quiet Location

5 su maggio 19, 2012

Did not realize how touristy Bar Harbor had become and the houses are right on top of each other,but, the accomodation was very nice, large room and exceptionally clean with no street noise due to tiny one way side street (slept like a baby), Breakfast was amazing both days, hearty and healthy!! If you don't like dogs beware they have two, one very big but loveable and quiet one and the smaller one is kept away from guests. Martha is very helpful with what to see, do etc and accurate.

the room was quite small. otherwise comfortable and agreeable

On the road in Bar Harbor with man's best friend.

4,8 su aprile 11, 2012

We took our first trip to Maine last week. We stayed at Canterbury Cottage for 3 nights. Martha and Tim were more than welcoming and very accommodating. We met Ellie Mae and Clinton and they were adorable. They have one pet friendly room, and it was very nice. More than enough room for the two of us and our lab mix. My mother traveled with us, fulfilling a long standing dream of seeing Maine and enjoying the lobster. She stayed in the Garden Room, which was across the hall. Very convenient for us. She was also very happy with her room and her experience. We hope to visit Maine again and plan to stay at Canterbury Cottage. Thank you Martha & Tim!

Lovely little year-round B&B in Bar Harbor

4,4 su aprile 11, 2012

Bar Harbor has many B&B options, and this is a nice one. Food and all interactions were excellent. It's also pet-friendly (and with friendly pets). The only drawbacks are related to its small size right downtown: the rooms are relatively small, and there's limited parking right at the inn. However, being walking distance to everything is well worth that trade-off.

Springtime Getaway

5 su aprile 05, 2012

I stayed at the Canterbury Cottage in March. I was blessed with wonderful weather, and so I had a great week in Bar Harbor nonetheless. But I can definitely say that my stay in BH was greatly impacted for the better by my stay at this B&B. Martha and Tim run a wonderful place, and I felt comfortable and welcome. The breakfasts were great, and Martha was particularly helpful helping me to plan hiking trails and pick out great places for lunch and dinner. The rates are reasonable no matter the season, and you also get the convenience of location. This B&B is super close to downtown BH and easily to get to. I will definitely stay here again.

Especially great during the off season!!

5 su marzo 22, 2012

Very chill bed and breakfast. Delicious breakfast was served. Two precious dogs make it truly feel like home. Another guest and I played Scattergories though many other games were provided. Visited during off season and can't wait to return when everything is bustling.

Excellent service and within walking distance of downtown Bar Harbor

4,8 su marzo 21, 2012

We have stayed here several times offseason to avoid the "tourists" and have felt bad that we did n't take time to acknowledge the excellent job that Martha does. The only negatives that I could ever see being a problem for someone would be if they aren't pet people since Martha does have a pet friendly room which is great for us. Also the shower stalls are on the small size but tastefully decorated and clean. I only mention this for older people like myself. The rates are great and the food is excellent. We will definitely continue to come back and have no desire to try a different B&B.

My Tale at Canterbury Cottage

4,8 su marzo 21, 2012

Well I don't think I can compete with Chaucer, but my Daughter and I certainly enjoyed our short stay in Bar Harbor, and the Canterbury Cottage was a welcome place to rest and rejuvenate. It is very cute and our room (The Sun Island) was very nice. Our hosts were so helpful on recommendations for dinner and helped us plan our day seeing as much of Acadia and Desert Island as we could in the winter. I would certainly consider going back and staying at this Inn in the future.

Breakfast was very good and Martha and her assistant, Danielle, were very pleasant and helpful with suggestions for restaurants and things to do in the area. Our room was cheery and very comfy. Only complaint about this particular room (garden room) was the size of the bathroom. Very small. All in all, we enjoyed this B&B and would recommend it as a good place to stay in beautiful Bar Harbor.

Great B&B!!

5 su ottobre 12, 2011

We stayed at the Canterbury Cottage for three nights in the first week of October, 2011. We have stayed in B&B's all over the world and this was truly one of the best. The hosts, Tim and Martha did every thing to make our stay wonderful; from the gourmet breakfasts to the well appointed and spotless room to the daily welcome by Clinton their Black Lab!! It is just a few minutes walking time to Bar Harbor and an easy drive to Acadia. I can't recommend this establishment more!!!

Great little B&B in a great location

3,8 su agosto 06, 2011

We had a great stay at this B&B while visiting Bar Harbor. It is located in a great location with free parking which was really good since we could walk to dinner, shopping and other activities in the main area of Bar Harbor without having to find parking (which can be a real pain in the more touristy areas). Word of advice: If you stay in the Look Nook be sure to ask for a fan during hotter nights because the A/C doesn't circulate that well throughout the room.

Beautiful vacancy!

Great Location in Bar Harbor!

4,6 su maggio 05, 2011

We recently stayed at the Canterbury Cottage with my in-laws and our young dog. Martha and Tim were very accommodating with our dog, who did not want to be left alone in his crate in the bedroom while we were eating breakfast - they allowed him to come down and be with us, which was perfect. The rooms were SUPER CLEAN - we were very impressed that even though we stayed in the one "dog room" at the cottage, we found no evidence of previous dogs (no hair on the bed or in corners of the room, etc) which made us feel very good about the cleanliness factor. The food was FANTASTIC - breakfast was ample and delicious and served just when we were ready (there was an hour time frame for the hot breakfast, but it seemed that whenever we made it downstairs, it was ready!). Martha was not around much, but Tim had some great recommendations for dinner, and since it was the off season and not everything was open, this was very helpful. We would definitely stay here again - the location is AMAZING, close to everything in Bar Harbor, and a very short drive to the entrance of Acadia National Park; in fact, we could be on top of Cadillac Mountain in about 12-15 minutes after leaving Canterbury Cottage, which was perfect.

Welcoming, Great Location, Excellent Food and Choices

We were made to feel quite welcome with a tastefully decorated living room filled with a wide selection of interesting books and magazines. You can conveniently walk right into town for shopping or to restaurants. Martha, the proprietor is classy, down-to-earth and very knowledgeable about the area. As Mainers, we highly recommend that you stay here. You won't be disappointed!

Martha and Tim went beyond my expectations in providing a clean, comfortable room, a fabulous breakfast and a warm and friendly atmosphere for all their guests. They generously shared their knowledge of the area and I already look forward to my next visit!

We went to stay over Thanksgiving weekend, and they were accommodating to all of our needs, kept our room amazingly clean, and cooked some amazing food! Thanks!


5 su novembre 10, 2010

Charming cozy cottage with great owners who are there for any of your questions. They go over and above with afternoon snacks, water, tea, coffee and soda available all the time. The bed was amazing! Puffy bed and comforters and great pillows that just sucked you in and made you want to stay in bed all morning! Plush towels and very clean bathroom. We stayed in the smallest room and it was plenty big for all our stuff and even a view off a little private deck. Off on a side street, so nice and quiet. Love this place!

Fantastic Stay

5 su ottobre 18, 2010

We recently stayed at the Canterbury Cottage B&B in October, 2010 on our trip throughout New England. I found this B&B thorugh the B&B associaton website and was pleasantly surprised by the host/hostess hospitality. The room was charming, loved how it was decorated and was very comfortable as well as clean. The breakfast that our host made was fabulous and couldn't do enough for us. The B&B is a 5-min. walk into town which also made it very convenient. They even supplied us with a parking spot. We would definitely stay there again and would recommend it for those staying in the Bar Harbor area.

Very accommodating- Highly recommended!!!!!

Martha and Rob were very accommodating! They are both personable and very gracious hosts. We loved Ellie May and Melvin, they made it feel like home to us. The rooms are very clean and comfortable. The meals were outstanding. Every afternoon there were snacks with tea and coffee available. This is a very upscale inn at reasonable prices. The bedding is of the highest quality and Martha keeps chocolates at the bedside and top of the line toiletries available for the guests to use. All of these 'extras' are included. We will be back next year.

great spot to stay while in Bar Harbor

Comfortable and affordable

4,6 su settembre 12, 2010

My husband and I stayed at Canterbury Cottage for our 1st anniversary. We loved the value and location of the B&B. The rooms were kept very clean and were nice and cozy after a long day of hiking. Martha and Rob were wonderful hosts, always willing to offer suggestions and help with reservations. Breakfasts were delicious!

Blissful Honeymoon at Canterbury Cottage!

4,8 su luglio 22, 2010

We spent our honeymoon at Canterbury Cottage this past July 2010. Although we live in PA, I am originally from ME and my husband and I had never traveled to Bar Harbor together! The experience was indescribable. Owner, Martha, was so helpful when I called to inquire and even allowed me to stop by and see Canterbury Cottage while I was home visiting ME in Dec09 to make sure that we liked it. The adorable charm of the exterior truly translates into the interior of the Cottage. The rooms are homey, yet stylish and you immediately feel "at home" when you walk in. We booked "The Look Nook" which has a private porch that overlooks the main entrance of the house. It was truly the highlight of our honeymoon. After spending our days hiking Acadia Nat'l Park, strolling through town, and dining out at the wonderful restaurants Bar Harbor has to offer, we always found ourselves wanting to return to "The Look Nook" to sit out on our porch and reminisce about the wedding. Martha and Rob left us a bottle of champagne/two glasses the one day while we were out and we enjoyed it out on our porch. It was such a sweet gesture and made our night! Besides the great hospitality you'll find at Canterbury Cottage, you'll also be accommodated with extremely comfortable bedding, a tv in your room to stay connected with the world (if you want), an extremely convenient walk to town, and an immense amount of literature downstairs to assist you with planning your stay. Although we did not eat any breakfasts that were provided as we slept in most days, everything smelled great! We did enjoy the tray of cookies that are always available however and all the treats were delicious! All in all the Canterbury Cottage is truly a gem and although we'd love to keep it a secret as our own private retreat, we would hate to deny anyone the experience that we had because it was truly one of the highlights of our wedding/honeymoon all together! Highly highly recommended from the "Pennsylvania Newlyweds"

Quiet oasis in heart of Bar Harbor

4,0 su giugno 12, 2010

We wish we could have stayed longer. Martha was a wonderful host and was always there with suggestions. With four rooms, breakfasts are almost a family time and we enjoyed meeting the other guests. The cottage is between two of the main downtown streets and is within walking distance of the harbor. The rooms are cozy with comfortable beds and there is a nice living room on the first floor, Snacks and drinks are always available. Martha and/or Rob responded to requests quichly and were gracious hosts.

Hospitality, convenience, great food

4,8 su ottobre 29, 2009

I had to go to Bar Harbor during the "off" season for business. I was very pleased with this inn. Martha's hospitality was wonderful, the rooms were beautifully decorated. My bathroom was small but the price was right. She was very accomodating with our breakfast and it really was wonderful. The inn is conveniently located near the center of town, the dogs are very cute and friendly and the bed was very comfy. The only drawback was the small bathroom but I am sure it was probably just my room.

Very Hospitable B&B

4,6 su ottobre 06, 2009

This B&B was a very nice, comfortable place to stay. The rooms were kept clean, and the amenities, such helped make the stay very comfortable. The breakfasts were different each day and were very good. The presentations of the food were quite attractive.

Cute, affordable place in Bar Harbor

3,4 su ottobre 01, 2009

A nice, cozy B&B off the beaten path, but within easy walking distance to everything in town. Martha and Rob are very friendly and helpful, and provide plenty of guidebooks, pamphlets, menus, and advice on anything you might want to do. Breakfast was absolutely delicious and they offer a nice variety of "different" entrees. Our only critiques were that parking was pretty tight, and the bathroom products were too feminine for unisex use, but those are small marks against a great place.

Honeymooner's Retreat

5 su agosto 12, 2009

This is a great place to stay, and we recommend it to all. We stayed in the Cottage Room and it was very cosy. Martha surprised us with a bottle of bubbly when we informed her that we were on our honeymoon. The personal attention and local information on where to travel and local eateries were spot on. The breafast menue changed everyday, a culinary delight awaited us each morning. Rob is also very informative of the area and was able to give us the in's and out's of what to do. Thank you again for a wonderful stay. The Perry's, Sydney, Australia

Canterbury Cottage

4,2 su luglio 22, 2009

We had a wonderful experience at Canterbury Cottage in Bar Harbor. The accomodations were excellent--The bed was comfortable and how do you get your towels so soft? Very quiet and close to everything! Martha and Rob are so pleasant and relaxed. We would go back in a heartbeat!

Nice place to stay

4,0 su ottobre 13, 2008

The house and room were wonderfully decorated and the location was very convenient for downtown. Martha and Rob were very helpful regarding places to eat and thing to do in Acadia. They had plenty of books on the park and menus of local places to eat. The food was wonderful and it was really nice to have water/coffee/tea/hot chocolate available at any time. We stayed at another bed and breakfast in Millinocket following this one and really missed the fact that they didnt have any drinks available. We stayed in the Garden Room. The bed was wonderfully comfortable and there was also a great supply of name brand shampoo, soaps and lotions. Not like the stuff you usually get at a hotel. My only complaint was that the bathroom and shower were very small and the water pressure was not great. Overall a very nice place to stay.

Great B&B

5 su settembre 30, 2008

We spent a wonderful second honeymoon in Bar Harbor. We loved every minute of it, in particular our time at Canterbury Cottage. The Sun Island room was just perfect, beautifully decorated without giving you the feeling of being trapped in a museum. Martha and Rob were both exactly what you might look for in an innkeeper: accessible and always ready to answer any question, but never overbearing. Their flexibility in dealing with our unexpectedly late check-in was GREATLY appreciated. Breakfasts were fabulous; the 3-course meal always struck a good balance between the gourmet and the simple/sensible/everyday. Canterbury's location was close to just about every place we wanted to go. All in all, it was an excellent, reasonably priced B&B that we highly recommend.

Wonderful Stay

4,6 su settembre 07, 2008

Marilyn and Rob were so friendly and helpful. The room was very nice and it was so nice to be within walking distance of the center of town. The breakfasts were out of this world. We would definitely recommand this to friends and are this week. Thank you for a wonderful stay.

outstanding B&B

4,8 su settembre 02, 2008

We recently stayed at in Bar Harbor and were very impressed with the B&B that Martha and Rob ran. It is very clean and super convenient to downtown Bar Harbor. We both really enjoyed the yummy sit down breakfast that Martha made. Definitely a great value when staying Bar Harbor. Chris and Kathy - Chicago, IL

Excellent bed and breakfast!

Our hosts made us feel like friends. Martha went out of her way to prepare breakfasts we liked. (I am a vegetarian). Great location and excellent value!

Great B&B!

5 su agosto 07, 2008

What a wonderful 4-day stay in Bar Harbor! Our room was meticulously clean & comfortable. Martha's friendly hospitality and helpful travel tips made our stay even more memorable. Breakfast was truly gourmet with a different menu every day. We felt welcome the minute we walked through the door and we will definitely go back!

Right at Home

5 su luglio 30, 2008

My friend and I stayed at Canterbury Cottage for a whole week as we explored Acadia National Park and Mt. Desert Island. The hosts, Martha and Rob, make you feel right at home, with delicious breakfasts containing local ingredients, friendly conversations and their four-legged doggy friends Melvin and Ellie Mae. The rooms are clean, the beds are extremely comfy and the linens cozy. I appreciated the generous supply of toiletries and the fresh towels and sheets whenever you like. You also can't beat the location, right around the corner from downtown Bar Harbor and beautiful buildings to explore. Martha and Rob have roots in the area so they have great recommendations about where to eat and what to do. I hope to go back again someday and when I do, I will make Canterbury Cottage my home base once again.

Perfect Bar Harbor Experience

5 su luglio 16, 2008

Canterbury Cottage was the perfect location with wonderful hospitality, great food and of course a very romantic room with balcony. My wife and I spent four nights for our honeymoon and are already planning to return all the way from California. Martha and Rob made our time perfect, even surprising us with a bottle of champagne chilled in our room. Breakfast every morning was outstanding and a great way to start the day. Everything was in walking distance from the inn, plus Martha and Rob provided us with tips on the best sights and eats. Located off the main streets, the inn was quite and peaceful, a real treat when enjoying the private balcony! I would recommend the Canterbury Cottage for any couple that wants a perfect Bar Harbor experience.

Great location

Excellent location, quiet street just steps from the town center. Room had lots of nice touches and great lighting for reading in bed.

Canterbury Cottage, an excellent bed and breakfast

4,0 su giugno 19, 2008

We planned a 5 day trip to the Acadia National Park and stayed at the Canterbury Cottage in Bar Habor, Maine, an excellent bed and breakfast. Martha and Rob, the owners, are very nice and have always good recommendations and information (e.g. restaurants, trips, tours….). We stayed in the Garden Room, very nice, quiet and clean and you always have water and some chocolate in the room (and an I-pod docking station). The breakfast is very good and gives you a good start for the day, Martha likes to combine sweet and salty things. In the afternoon/evening there are always some self-made cakes, cookies etc. and water and soda which is nice after coming back form a long walk. We can absolutely recommend this place and would come back any time.

Stay here!

4,4 su maggio 26, 2008

My wife, her parents, and I stayed at the Canterbury Cottage for three nights during the first week of May. We could not have been happier! LOCATION: This B&B is wonderfully situated, on a quiet side street just minutes by foot from plenty of shops as well as places to eat and drink. A century young, the house is the epitome of inviting and cute. ROOMS: Our rooms were truly charming and very reasonably priced. It was wonderfully quiet there, too! We could've heard a pin drop at night - if we hadn't slept so soundly. :-) We do, however, have one gripe: our bathroom hadn't been cleaned prior to our arrival, and on one of the other days it wasn't cleaned as thoroughly as it should have been. BREAKFAST was perfect - a great array of different treats each morning. We also enjoyed the option of enjoying some cereal, bagels, and other goodies _in addition to_ the three-course breakfast. What's more, Martha encouraged us to pack free bottles of water and free granola bars for the day. OWNERS: Most importantly, Martha and Rob are fantastically hospitable and knowledgeable innkeepers. Time and again, they eagerly gave us top-notch advice and shared their insights, from places to eat to nice drives to must-experience places in Acadia National Park and elsewhere on the island. DOGS: Ellie May and Melvin are two of the greatest dogs I've encountered. Unless you're allergic to pets or - God forbid - hate dogs, you'll love their affection and energy. :-) When we make it back to Bar Harbor, we'll certainly stay at the Canterbury Cottage!

what a great little find!

5 su marzo 17, 2008

This was such a great little B&B! It was beautiful and the host (Rob - Martha was out of town was so warm and welcoming. We brought our dog and they were really, truly pet friendly. The food was excellent. I would HIGHLY recommend this cottage for a stay when traveling to Bar Harbor. We have stayed in another B&B in Bar Harbor and this was nicer, and much more friendly.

Great Bar Harbor B&B

3,6 su ottobre 27, 2007

Perfect place to bed down in Bar Harbor. It is right down town, so it is an easy walk to restaurants for dinner or stores for shopping. We came to Bar Harbor to bicycle the carriage roads in Acadia Park and found we could bike directly to the Park from the B&B. We essentially left our van parked at the B&B the whole 4 days we were there. The B&B itself was greatly improved from the last time we stayed there (under previous owners), much more bright and cheery. The breakfasts each morning were gourmet, yet hearty enough to fuel our outdoor activities each day. We will definitely be returning next year.

Nice Place

3,6 su ottobre 17, 2007

Room was cozy and bed and pillows were great. Appreciated the attention to details ie. good bath products and chocolates in room. Food was good too. Only thing that gave me pause were the two rambunctious dogs. They were a little too in the way.

Wonderful little B&B

5 su settembre 07, 2007

We really enjoyed our stay, and thought the price was incredible for the quality and location. We were in the Cottage Room, which was sunny and simple. The linens were high quality and the bed was comfortable. The location is a quiet residential street walking distance to everything in Bar Harbor, and about a 5 minute drive from Acadia National Park. The breakfasts were wonderful, and they accomodated vegetarian requests. They also offered beverages and baked goods in the afternoon, which were always very good. Martha and Rob were helpful and friendly, but not intrusive. This would make for a very nice getaway for a couple, or a good honeymoon spot. We will definitely be back.

Best hosts ever at Canterbury Cottage

4,6 su settembre 07, 2007

Rob and Martha made us feel like visiting family at their charming downeast B & B. Our room was beautiful, immaculate and inviting (loved the luxury of Aveda products). Breakfasts were delicious ... couldn't wait to see what Martha was cooking up each morning. Location was perfect ... on a quiet street but walking distance to harbor and downtown. We loved the resident dogs, but Rob and Martha are the reason we would definitely stay at Canterbury Cottage again. They gave us great tips about local acitivities and restaurants. And we loved the stories they shared about their beautiful island community.


5 su agosto 27, 2007

The Explorer's Guide to Maine was right on target to include this charming, sunny, spacious B&B on its recommended list. Martha and Rob make everyone feel right at home and serve awesome breakfasts! Perfect location too. I didn't want to leave!


5 su agosto 04, 2007

VERY friendly and warm atmosphere. Quintessential Bar Harbor decor with the best breakfasts we have ever had in all of our years of staying at B&B's!!!And they love dogs, what could be better???


4,6 su luglio 31, 2007

We enjoyed our stay at the Inn. The pictures are looks even better in person! Martha and Rob were very helpful with all of our questions. The breakfasts were delicious. The Inn was in walking distance to restaurants, shops and the shuttle bus. We would recommend it to others and would stay there again!

Great B & B

4,6 su luglio 31, 2007

Very friendly and helpful owners. The location was very convenient to Island Explorer shuttles and within easy walking distance of restaurants and shopping. Room was very clean and nicely decorated. Provided nice, essential toiletries (not the cheapo hotel brands you often see) and hair dryer, as well as bottles of water in the room. Breakfast was a treat. The dogs were fun (and clean). We stayed at another Inn for part of the trip, and Canterbury Cottage was by far our favorite. We will definitely return if we make our way back to Bar Harbor.


4,8 su luglio 17, 2007

I couldn't wait to wake up each morning and see what Martha was serving for breakfast - it was all delicious! This is a lovely B&B with knowledgeable and friendly owners in walking distance of great shops and restaurants. I will go back!

This is a great location for vacationing in Bar Harbor and Acadia. The rooms are charming and the hosts extremely friendly and low key. Even the resident dogs are fun. I would definitely return.
