Anne's White Columns Inn, an impressive Georgian structure, is located in the Historical Corridor in downtown Bar Harbor. Upon entering through the columned portico, one is greeted by the Victorian elegance of the foyer and salon. The huge fireplace is often crackling in spring and fall. The large wicker attired porch provides a peaceful setting for a leisurely breakfast, or your glass of wine and cheese during those long summer afternoons. The spacious grounds are a haven from the downtown activity but still convenient to the shops and restaurants.

Nice B&B, good location

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.

Relaxing and Wonderful!

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.

Anne's White Columns is a great place to stay in Bar Harbor. The location is excellent, you can walk easily to anything down town. At night it is pretty quiet, not so much road noise. Breakfast is very good and plentiful. Wine and cheese in the afternoons is a nice break before going out in the evening. This part of Maine rivals anywhere for beauty. So enjoyed our visit.

great place for a short stay in Bar Harbor

Bob was friendly and knowledgable. The food and service were excellent. The drain in the bathroom sink ran very slowly. The room was a little smaller than expected.
