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.

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

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.

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?

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
