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 stayed for 4 nights and had an absolute great experience. Anne is a charming hostess and joined us for the afternoon social hour most days. The room was meticulously prepared and cleaned with minor touches added (decanter of port, chocolates) to enhance the overall experience. This was our second visit and we already know there will be more. You can't go wrong with this one.

Our first stay at the Cleftstone Manor was on our 25th anniversary. We were so impressed that we returned for our 30th and 35th anniversary! The innkeepers are so kind and personable. The service is impeccable and the Manor is beautiful! The breakfasts are better than you can imagine, served with elegance and a smile. You will never be disappointed staying here.

Great location and charming owner/hostess in Bar Harbor. Wonderful period decorations in a historical house. Fun guest social sessions with refreshments each evening. Great introduction to the area and the glorious park.

My husband and I really enjoyed our two night stay here. We stayed in the Waldron Bates room/suite and loved the roominess and quietness of this third level room. Anne, the owner, was helpful with any questions we had about the area. You choose the breakfast you want the evening before-between two choices. I thought the food was very good. The cleanliness was exceptional. I would absolutely stay here again when visiting Acadia or Bar Harbor.

My husband and I had a truly wonderful time at the beautiful Cleftstone Manor. Everywhere you look you find another treasure! We loved the Joseph Pulitzer dining room table. All of the rooms are different and unique. Ann showed a few that were open and we loved them all. Wonderful nooks and crannies all over. Ann is a fantastic cook and she and her staff are very helpful and friendly. We really felt at home. Would love to return! We spent 5 nights in the Laura Blair room last week

We were on the 3rd floor and it seemed as though it took FOREVER for the hot water to reach up to us.........literally waiting 10 minutes for the shower to get warm was frustrating. The inn was very nice and our room was sufficient, although I had expected better linens and warmer hospitality based on my prior stays at other B&Bs. It was a nice alternative to the hotels in the area and the free shuttle around the island was a nice plus.

I arrived late and left early and Anne took it all in stride, even providing a breakfast for the road. Convenient location, rooms are very clean, and the breakfasts were great. Shower in the James Blaine room is on the small side. Anne is knowledgeable about the island and always ready with a recommendation. I've stayed twice and would go back again.

Great place and great customer service. Only complaint is the slow wi-fi. But who needs wi-fi when you're on vacation anyway.
