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 had a great time in spite of the weather. A very friendly and inviting bed and breakfast. The food was tremendous, the staff friendly and very helpful. The entire place well kept and clean. I would recommend this b&b to anyone going to the Bar Harbor, ME area.

Our last stay was 24 years ago, and when we returned recently - it was the same as we remembered, but better ! You can't beat the location, ambience, friendliness of staff, and price. Go and find out yourself.

Cleftstone is a great place to stay. Great food, friendly staff, and comfortable beds. The owner makes the best quiche in the world.

Cleftstone was a fine place to stay, but it was just that...fine. It wasn't bad, but it wasn't great either. If we're back in Bar Harbor, we may look for somewhere else to stay because for the same price, we can probably find something a little better than average.

This was our 6th stay at the Clefstone for our Anniversary week! We love Ann and her staff - the rooms are cozy and comfortable, the breakfasts outstanding, and the location just perfect for either going downtown Bar Harbor, hiking Acadia, or scooting over to Schoodic for a day. Highly recommended!

Stayed here with my wife for part of our honeymoon. Our room was great, and the breakfast was probably the best I have ever had! Just outside of town, easily within walking distance of downtown Bar Harbor. Highly recommend to anyone looking for a place to stay while visiting Acadia.

Anne is a lovely hostess and wonderful cook. From the moment we arrived we felt welcomed, accommodated, and comfortable. Enjoyed the books of local interest available to peruse in the sunroom, and how the history of the area is incorporated into the names of the guest rooms. NOTE: The room exceeded my expectations, but that star wouldn't stay highlighted on the scale.....
