Bed & Breakfast - Spot On!

5 on July 15, 2014

Our room was just beautiful and the bed was heavenly. We were in the Winston Churchill suite on the 1st floor and noise was not an issue whatsoever. Breakfast was superb and late serving time was appreciated. Susan and Barry were so personable and easy to talk to, it was nice talking to them and all of the other guests in the house. You can't beat the location either...walking distance to lots of shops and dining and a quick drive to Acadia. We will most certainly be back for a much longer stay next time!

Wonderful Stay for travelers from Washington, DC

My wife and I chose Hearthside because of the value and positive reviews. Everything about our stay was wonderful. We greatly enjoyed our time with Barry and Susan. It was our first trip to MDI and Bar Harbor and will return with friends and family and insist to stay at Hearthside.

Great Vacation Spot

4.8 on July 12, 2014

Wonderful stay in a perfect location. Walking distance to everything. Great breakfasts to start the day. Wonderful hosts who were always ready to chat and provide insights on things to do around the town. Comfortable and homey accommodations where you could stay in and read a book during the tail end of a hurricane (which we did) or just stop by to refresh with a cup of tea and baked goods before setting back out to explore. Can't wait to return!

2 Nights at The Hearthside

5 on July 09, 2014

We had a truly excellent stay in this Inn. The facility is in as perfect condition as possible, it is clinically clean, bed and sheets were top quality, and the hosts went out of their way to make the stay enjoyable, but without being intrusive. The food seemed limitless and was thoughtfully prepared. I must confess to being surprised at the quality of the experience for the price we paid. Hotel chains should come and learn from this place. All very good indeed. Richard and Joanne, London

We stayed two nights - continue to enjoy this b&b! The location is within easy walking distance of restaurants and the harbor. Acadia park is nearby with it's beautiful carriage roads and hiking trails. We have fantastic breakfasts at the B&B, great afternoon treats, and a friendly and welcoming atmosphere.

Great Stay in Bar Harbor, Maine

Great Host and Hostess

Love this place!

We stumbled upon this gem 10 years ago on our honeymoon and have been back two other times. We love it and wouldn't stay anywhere else.

We were invited to accompany our dear friends on this, their 3rd time to Bar Harbor. The first was their honeymoon, returning on their first anniversary, and now their 10th…returning every time to stay at Hearthside. What an honor for us. It was our first time to Maine and won't be our last. The area was lovely and the location of Hearthside was convenient for walking down to the harbor, as well as a short drive to the park for hiking. We chartered a sailboat, ate lobster…repeatedly… and every experience recommended by Barry and Susan was wonderful. They were perfect hosts and excellent cooks :) When we return, there's no reason to stay anywhere else but Hearthside.

Lovely stay in the glass menagerie

5 on July 03, 2014

We had such a lovely stay at Hearthside! We were in love with the glass menagerie room which had a little private balcony and cute area to sit and read right next to the window. The bathroom was separate but we never bumped into anybody on our way there. The breakfasts were delicious!! Thank you to Susan and Barry for all their generous hospitality! Will definitely come back to visit one day! :)
