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.

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.....

We had a fabulous stay at Cleftstone Manor in mid September. Anne and her staff were attentive and made sure we had everything we needed. The room was spacious, the breakfasts were very yummy and the whole B&B quite lovely. I would recommend it to anyone looking to stay in Bar Harbor.

We recently stayed at Cleftstone for a second time, while bicycling in Acadia National Park. We returned because of the wonderful memories of our first stay there, and we were not disappointed. The staff is friendly and welcoming, the breakfasts were scrumptious and the rooms were nicely appointed with a comfortable bed. The location is extremely convenient and the history of the place is fascinating. We'll be back.
