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.

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!

My husband and I chose Cleftstone Manor from your site and were very pleased. Anne greeted us upon our arrival and brought us through the residence explaining any needed information for our stay. Our room was beautiful and had four large windows that we left open in the evening rather than air conditioning. The breakfasts were wonderful with a choice of two entrees each morning with fruit and croissants as well. I would highly recommend Cleftstone Manor for anyone's stay while visiting Mount Desert Island.
