Pleasant B & B

3.2 on October 31, 2014

Our stay at the Hearthside was very nice. Our room was spacious and well kept. The bed was very comfortable. For us there were a few drawbacks. There was no TV in the room and I'm sure for some people that would not be a problem but for my husband it was. The parking is very limited and very tight in front of the building. I have a new car and I was not very happy about that. Breakfast is served at one big dining room table. I am not a morning person and although the food was excellent I do not like to share my breakfast with strangers making small talk. There were some tables outside but some mornings we were not luck enough to get one. I'm sure for some people these things would not be an issue. In that case this would be a very nice place to stay, It's in a great location close to town and the innkeepers were very friendly, helpful and accommodating.

Great B&B in Bar Harbor

Cozy rooms and super friendly and helpful innkeepers. Within a short walk to any place downtown. Planning to go back next year for a longer stay.

We have been to Bar Harbor Maine several times and we always stay at the Hearthside Bed and Breakfast. Susan and Barry always provide us with scrumptious breakfasts, and wonderful hospitality. Hearthside is only a few hundred yards from the center of Bar Harbor with all it's shops and restaurants. It would be difficult to find a better place to stay.

We could not be happier with out decision to stay at hearthside. The whole experience was outstanding, room was clean and comfortable, breakfast was delicious, location was supreme, and the host was helpful and very knowledgeable. It was an incredible first time for us, and hope to be one of their many "returning guests". We really hope to make it back soon. Will &Nuria

What you expect from a B & B

Susan and Barry are very good hosts. Very helpful if you need suggestions and/or assistance.

convenience and quiet

4.6 on September 30, 2014

Hearthside is located within walking distance of town yet on a quiet street. Susan and Barry are very friendly and fun. They are knowledgeable about the area and anxious to share that info - even loaning binocs and blankets and water bottles. Breakfast was varied and scrumptious. There are stairs to navigate but they are wider than most old homes so very doable. We would recommend it to anyone who enjoys B&B..

Great Visit

We and another couple spent 2 nights at Hearthside and it was wonderful. The rooms were large and comfortable with everything you needed. The hosts were friendly and helpful with any question we had and we had several. The breakfasts were tasty and filling. It's one of the best B & Bs we've stayed in.

We enjoyed our stay. Breakfast was great. Room very nice and spotless. My only issue was the limited parking. I have a midsize pickup and the parking spaces were very tight.

Bar Harbor Best B & B

This is our second stay with Barry and Susan at Hearthside. It is a joy to stay with such a pleasant couple. We felt at home but pampered. Breakfast was great and Barry's updates on the area are very helpful.
