Perfect Visit

5 on September 03, 2014

We made a last minute reservation at the Aysgarth and couldn't have been more pleased. The room was clean and well kept and we loved the little gifts and information the innkeepers had left for us. The innkeepers were extremely friendly and took the time to offer personalized advice for which hikes to go on in the park. They were very accommodating to our vegetarian diet and we loved being able to sample local teas and blueberries! They set a high bar that was hard to match for our 2nd night when they had no availability. I highly recommend the Aysgarth Station B&B!


Warm & Inviting

Wonderful

My husband and other relatives stayed here in Oct.,2013. What a wonderful experience we had. The rooms were clean, the food great and Steve and Jane plus their cats were so welcoming. We all hope to return someday.


Wonderful B&B, Great Location

5 on July 30, 2012

My husband and I had never been to Bar Harbor before. We stayed at the Aysgarth Inn for 2 nights in July, 2012. The Inn is located on a quiet street within walking distance to all the restaurants, bars and shops in downtown Bar Harbor. The breakfast is exceptional and our room was adorable, clean and quite comfortable. The owners are very friendly and knowledgeable about Bar Harbor and hiking. They even recommended a great spot on to see the sunset on the Mountain. The homemade cookies on the dinning room table in the afternoon were perfect after a long day of hiking! We plan to return.


Cozy, Comfortable, Great Location

We chose Aysgarth Station for our Memorial Day weekend accommodations because it had great reviews, a downtown location, and had a room available for under $120/night.  We were not disappointed.  The entire inn was cozy and comfortable.  We stayed in the Whitby room,  small but clean with a nicely tiled bathroom and shower.  The location was perfect-- on a very quiet street, but still within comfortable walking distance to Bar Harbor's shops and restaurants.  Also, the street that the inn is located on connects directly to the Park Loop Road, allowing easy access for cycling or driving. The innkeepers, Steve and Jane, were easy to talk to and full of ideas for activities and restaurants.  Breakfast was delicious and filling-- a hot entree, fruit, more baked goods than you'd ever need, and nice strong coffee.  Speaking of coffee, they even had it ready in time for our sunrise hike up Cadillac Mountain one morning!  We will definitely consider returning to Aysgarth Station on our next trip to Bar Harbor.


Our New Go-To B&B

5 on April 30, 2012

My fiance and I wanted a weekend away and so we found this place on the internet. As far as we're concerned, unless they're booked up (which would be no surprise), it's the only place we'll look for again. Our room was big and sunny, the bedroom and bath were spotless, we had plenty of everything (including maps and literature), and everything was precise down to the fluffy bath towels. There was no evidence whatsoever of Jane and Steve trying to cut a corner. The owners alone are worth going for. With warm smiles and a delightful sense of humor, they give the immediate impression that you are a welcome guest in a home, not a stranger who is there to pay a fee. They want to know where you're coming from, why you're there, what you're looking for in the Bar Harbor experience, and how they can help you to achieve it. They make wonderful recommendations for hiking and dining, and they have the inside scoop on what is open during the offseason. My fiance and I spent the car ride home talking about how we'd love to hang out with them at a bar! I'd be remiss if I did not mention their phenomenal breakfasts. We were fortunate enough to enjoy two of them during our stay. We were treated to fresh fruit and freshly baked breads and scones, plus lemon-ricotta pancakes on the first morning and a goat cheese and bacon tart on the second morning. We were positively gushing about how wonderful the food was. Again, not a single corner cut anywhere. Steve and Jane just want you to have the best experience you can have, and for that, we thank them!


Exceptional B & B!

We stayed five nights the middle of August and had a fabulous time. Steve and Jane are incredible hosts, very helpful and warm. Jane's breakfasts are better than any restaurant anywhere. Gourmet all the way!!! We loved both rooms we were in, Tan Hill and Chatsworth. Met some wonderful people from all over the USA and Canada. Would definitely Aysgarth to anyone headed to Bar Harbor. We hope to visit again in the fall of 2012.


Our favorite bed and breakfast in Bar Harbor

5 on February 08, 2011

We have stayed at several bed and breakfasts in Bar Harbor and this is by far our favorite in any season (and Aysgarth Station is open year-round). Jane and Steve are welcoming and have a wonderful sense of humor, as well as a wealth of knowledge about the area regardless of the season. The rooms are immaculate and attractively decorated, the living room is a perfect place to relax after breakfast and at the end of the day, and the dining room is stocked with tea/coffee/sodas all the time and Jane adds home baked cookies or brownies in the afternoon. And then there are Jane's wonderful breakfasts...We always look forward to a chance to visit the beautiful area and Aysgarth Station.


Perfect stay

Jane and Steve are outstanding hosts for this beautiful Inn, within walking distance of Bar Harbour Center.They gave us numerous helpful tips about what to see and we were able to enjoy the cozy sitting room. Really recommended if one should plan a visit to Bar Harbour !


GREAT B&B

4.4 on October 14, 2010

In July 2010, we were vacationing for one week at Aysgarth Station.The house was just wonderful, extremely nice and comfortable. A very charming and peaceful location. Our hostesses, Jane and Steve were very welcoming and friendly. They know extremely well the Island of Mount Desert Island and the Acadia National Park. Therefore they were excellent counsellors at all level; on restaurants, hiking, cycling, activities and also providing their clientele with a lot of documentation. Aysgarth Station is also very well located. A small peaceful street at walking distance to Bar Harbour. Finally Jane is an excellent cook, her breakfasts were delicious; she offered an excellent selection with a happy and friendly service. Jane understood and spoke some French, which was helpful and pleasant for us. We shall return. M&D
