The Cleftstone Manor, built in 1884 on “Millionaire’s Row”, is one of the few Victorian mansions to escape the fire of 1947. The seventeen guestrooms, each with private bath, and magnificent common rooms are furnished with Victorian antiques and period pieces, creating an atmosphere reminiscent of turn of the century Bar Harbor. Enjoy a gourmet breakfast each morning created by our chef and owner Anne Bahr as well as afternoon refreshments.

We were in Bar Harbor with friends and Cleftstone Manor was their first experience with a B&B. They were not disappointed. The breakfasts were amazing with a choice of out of entree each morning along with a beautiful fruit serving, breads, juice and coffee always available. The bus line runs in front of the Inn every 15 mins for a quick trip to the center of town. Very close proximity to Acadia National Park. We enjoyed our stay at Cleftstone. Manor.

The bathroom wasn't pristine, but otherwise Clefstone was great. Also fantastic to have access to the pool next door. Great breakfast.

Considering that we knew nothing about Bar Harbor, we feel we lucked out with our choice of B&B. We loved the location. It's not right in town, but close enough for an invigorating walk, and the bus system is convenient if you are too tired to walk. The house is gorgeous, and our room was really pleasant and comfortable. We enjoyed gathering with the other guests on the porch in the late afternoon. And the breakfasts were superb! Our host and staff were ready with advice and recommendations on what to do -- or to avoid -- so we felt our time overall was well spent. I'll stay here again, and feel comfortable giving it a strong recommendation.

The property is just a piece of art. The room was big, comfy - the bed and linens were stunning.

The early evening get togethers were really appreciated, a lovely way to talk to fellow travellers. The style and breakfast menus ensured one was not eating excessively, a thoughtful selection of healthy options was included.

We enjoyed our stay at the Cleftstone Manor. We were fortunate to have the Clefstone room; enjoyed the great space and a fire each evening. The breakfast was great as well as the conversation during the evening "happy hour". We took the opportunity to use the indoor pool and hot tub daily at the adjacent hotel; was very relaxing. We would definately stay her again!
