We stayed in the Bear Room across the drive and it was perfect for us. Bar Harbor was so very busy that we loved we could return here and unwind. The owners are lovely and the service was excellent. We will recommend this place to others and return here if we ever get the chance.

This cozy, quiet inn is a 10 minute drive from Bar Harbor and Acadia National Park. We just loved eating breakfast or relaxing on the porch with the view of the ocean (make sure you make your way down to explore the beach!), and listening to the birds singing in the garden. Comfy beds, too:) Enjoy!
5 on July 19, 2014
Stayed in Bear Cottage. Very clean and comfortable. The hosts were wonderful and Jack spent a good 10 minutes one morning with me personally outlining on a map some of the great sights we should see while in Acadia. Breakfast was superb. The rocky beach was just awesome and felt like we were in a very unique place. Everything about this place was great.

This beautiful B&B is a hidden treasure. We felt at home from the time we arrived until we left a few days later. We wish we could have stayed longer. The owners, Jeani & Jack and their staff could not have been nicer or more helpful. The house and the rooms we so comfortable and there were many places to just sit and relax with a beautiful view of Frenchmans Bay from the porch. The breakfasts and snacks were delicious & plentiful. It is a long trip from NJ but wellworth the visit.

Jack und Jean sind wunderbare Gastgeber. Die Anlage ist wunderschön und liebevoll gepflegt und liegt etwas außerhalb in einem kleinen ruhigen Wäldchen in ca. 5-7min Autominuten von Bar Harbour entfernt. Die Zimmer im oberen Geschoss sind etwas größer haben einen eigenen Balkon und vom Bett kann man die Sonne aufgehen sehen. In der Anlage gibt es einen kleinen Pool und auch eine Sauna. Es gibt einen kleinen eigenen "Beach" zu dem man über eine Treppe an den Klippen hinabsteigt und einen sehr netten Aussichtsplatz oberhalb der Klippen. Von dort kann man entspannt den Sonnenaufgang und Ruhe genießen.Jack's Empfang ist sehr warm und seine Empfehlungen sehr hilfreich. Jean zaubert ein liebevolles Frühstück. Wir haben unseren Aufenthalt sehr genossen und kommen gerne wieder

My husband and I recently stayed at the Inn and found everything about it exceptional! The rooms were super clean and comfortable, you felt like you were home. The views were incredible. The Inn is tucked into the cliffs of Bar Harbor so the quiet, calm, and grounded by nature feelings abound. The grounds were teaming with flowers and beautifully maintained. The breakfasts were delicious, and eating outside on their expansive back deck made everything taste that much better. While eating breakfast one morning we even spotted a seal out in the water! The staff were equally as fabulous as the Inn itself. Jack the owner, was filled with interesting facts, stories, and suggestions about the island. His dog Pearly greeted us every morning and was a welcome sight for my husband and I who left our pets at home and were missing them. We will absolutely be back to stay with Jack and Jeany again. What a fantastic home away from home.

Stayed the 4th of July weekend in the Moose Cottage, very clean and peaceful. Wonderful breakfast in the morning severed overseeing the bay. Cheaper places to stay but will stay here again. The owners were extremely friendly and a wonderful atmosphere.

We had a wonderful time at the Inn at Bay Ledge. We stayed in the Summer Cottage. It was very nice, but the ceiling was too low in the loft and there was no coffee pot provided. The breakfasts were very good and different every day. It is a lovely place to visit, close to everything but secluded.
5 on July 08, 2014
The location out side of town on the water was fabulous. The staff was attentive and full of information to enhance our stay. The homemade coffeecakes and savory bread pudding were out of this world with fresh strawberries and rhubarb from the garden. The photo ops on the rugged rocky shore (86 steps down to the beach) with caves and arches just like Capri! Who knew this gem existed?
4.8 on July 08, 2014
We had a wonderful stay. My daughter and I were both thrilled with the homey, yet luxurious accommodations. The breakfast was not as nutritious as we would have liked - all sweets - but it was delicious. Everyone was helpful and beyond pleasant. We had help booking dinner in Bar Harbor to insure we had vegetarian meals. We had to get an early start the day we checked out but were still provided with a light breakfast to go and more importantly delicious coffee. This B&B would be a sweet romantic get-away as well as a perfect mother-daughter stay. Thank you to all who made our long awaited trip to Maine so memorable.

My husband and I can't say enough about the Inn at Bay Ledge. We had a fantastic stay there, food outstanding, rooms are clean and comfortable, owners friendly and making you feel right at home. We would recommend this B&B to everyone.
5 on July 05, 2014
The hosts were fantastic and friendly and made you feel right at home. The views were fabulous and the grounds were very inviting. The breakfast was excellent and with the glorious view it was difficult to leave that spot to start the day. I would not hesitate to recommend this place and I will most certainly plan a return stay when I venture back into this area.
4.8 on July 01, 2014
The perfect location on the bay 5 miles north of Bar Harbor. Much better than being in town with the noise, traffic and tourists. Our room had a view of Frenchman's Bay and it looks like all do. Wonderful pool, point on the water with great view, beach on the bay and wonderful accomodations. The Inn was immaculate with a covered front porch to die for. Delicious breakfast and the innkeepers were friendly, entertaining, attentive and full of stories and history. Check out the scrap book showing that one of President Bush's daughters (and other famous people) stayed here. You will love!

The Inn at Bay Ledge was more then we expected, great view very clean rooms and the owners and staff were very friendly and helpful they know the area and give you tips on were to go for meals and sightseeing, Thank you Jack and Jeani

Perfect property for guests seeking avoidance of the crowds of Bar Harbor, plus a million-dollar view of Frenchman's Bay. These innkeepers have also fine-tuned the art of hospitality.
5 on June 28, 2014
Inn at Bay Ledge has it all... Unique location with the steps down to the bay, Lovely period furnishings, scrumptious gourmet breakfasts, and warm, friendly inn-keepers and staff. Whether you just want to relax at the inn or take Jack's advice of places to explore, you can't go wrong here.

We loved the view at the Ledge! The owners were very friendly and helpful in directing us to places to go and to eat around Bar Harbor!
5 on June 15, 2014
A wonderful place to stay. It's off the beaten path and quiet. The views are phenomenal. The inn keepers are warm and friendly. If you do t want to be in the middle of Bar Harbor amongst the tumult, this is a must stay!
5 on June 14, 2014
Quiet, clean, and friendly. Most of all the beds were comfortable. Jack is definitely an ambassador, both o and off the slopes. Good thing Jean is there to get the work done.
5 on June 11, 2014
This was a lovely B & B, but I have to say the best part was the vista it provided. I LOVED walking down the path to the edge of the rock cliff and just sitting and watching.....the sunrise, the tides, just the all around beauty. The owners were very nice and we especially enjoyed time with Ellen, the new weekend hostess. She was a delight! This is a great place to "hide-away" and we plan to do it again in the future!

4.6 on November 20, 2013
I had never been to Maine and, honestly, didn't know what to expect. To be on the safe side, I booked at this Bed& Breakfast because the rooms looked really nice online and I wanted to make sure the trip was worth something if I didn't like the area. The inn is right on the ocean and you can walk off the lawn onto the beach. If you stay in the Acadia Suite, as we did, you have the most gorgeous view onto the ocean. The room was outstanding and the two fireplaces just added to the ambiance. This experience was truly great and I think that this place is the perfect location for a romantic getaway. I can highly recommend it.

Stayed Oct.19 -22 2013. Bar Harbor was closing up for the winter but there was still plenty to do. Jack & Jean were perfect hosts. B&B was just far enough away from the tourist center. We will definetly stay there when we return. We had a great time.

we recently spent 3 nights at bay ledge inn to celebrate our 25th wedding anniversary(we stayed in the same cabin that we stayed in for our honeymoon at bay ledge 25 years ago). We had such a nice stay;very relaxing. The room was very nice;the bed was spacious and comfortable. Breakfasts were great with a nice variety. The best part was the staff! Jack and Jeani were very welcoming and easy to talk to. Shelia and Lucia were also great. We look forward to our next stay at bay ledge inn!

I stay in B&B often. This was exceptional because of the delightful staff and inn keepers . It was quiet , well maintained , delicious breakfast , and a respite from a hectic world.
5 on October 10, 2013
We were away from all the touristy crowd hubbub, yet close enough to town to go and tour Acadia and downtown Bar Harbor. The peacefulness and lovely charm of our room really helped us relax and the outdoor porch breakfast and view was amazing! We really couldn't have had a lovelier stay.

We stayed two nights at the bear cottage in August 2013. The cottage is right the other side of the road from the Inn and has a dedicated small parking lot. The "bear theme" Room is charming with nice furniture (including a gas operated fireplace) and reminds a log cabin. The place including bathroom was spotless clean. The actual Inn is cozy and the breakfast (yummi!!!) on the terrace facing the bay is a wonderful way to start the day. The hosts Jack and Jeani are happy to entertain their guests with all the infos on the area and ready to meet their requests. On the down side the wifi signal in the lodge is weak. Overall an enjoyable stay in the perfect place to visit Bar Harbor and Acadia NP.
4.2 on September 12, 2013
My husband and I stayed at moose cottage for two nights. The cottage was cute and quaint, shower is a bit small and bed is a bit too soft, but we really enjoyed the outside porch area. The inn itself is very pretty and the location is great if you don't want to be in the middle of Bar Harbor. Jack was wonderful, very nice and welcoming. The food was delicious- breakfast was excellent with creative but very tasty food each morning. In the afternoons there were also freshly baked cookies, which we couldn't resist! Staying at Bay Ledge was a great way to end a camping vacation and we would recommend staying here.
5 on September 11, 2013
Jack, Jeani, the staff and Miss Pearl could not have been more welcoming, gracious and pleasant. This being our thrid visit to the Inn at Bay Ledge, the views, the people and the food. Everytime we come we want to stay longer.

The Inn at Bay Ledge was everything we hoped it would be. The location and landscaping is absolutely beautiful. The Inn itself is decorated to magazine layout perfection, and the property maintenance is obviously a top priority because everything looked like it was new. Amazing beds, great breakfasts, and everything beautiful and in order. This is a perfect place to enjoy Bar Harbor and Acadia!

This Inn is in beautiful setting overlooking the bay with its own beach. A great beach for sea shell collecting. The room was well appointed and comfortable. The Innkeeper and staff were very helpful and accommodating. The location is quiet and restful, yet the town of Bar Harbor and the entrance to Acadia National Park are but minutes away. Overall, the Inn is ideal if you are looking for a vacation spot that restful with plenty of dining, shopping and outdoor activities nearby.

We stayed at the Bay Ledge for 3 days. It was heaven!. The location is idilic, beautiful gardens in front of a lovely bay with a beach. the bedrooms are wonderful, comfortable, spotless, The terrace in the bedroom had a great view. The Inn is wonderfull, it has different leaving rooms to sit down and relax, all of the warm and lovely.The owners, Jack and Jeani were wonderful, so warm and caring, always ready to help and to make our stay perfect. Jeanie is a wonderfull cook, we enjoyed the jummy cooked breakfasts in the porsche or dining room enyoing the garden/bay view. In the evening Jeani´s lovely cookies and tea, coffe were there for us to enjoy in front of the fireplace). On top of everything Pearl, the friendliest, sweetest dog (a labradoodle) is there ready to be stroken. There are all kind of lovely places to go, restaurants , shops, Acadia National Park, just 5 minutes drive. It is the place to stay. It is perfect.

Our stay at the Inn at Bay Ledge was incredible. We stayed in the summer cottage. The accommodations were wonderful, the view spectacular, and the service top notch. We never expected delicious, gourmet breakfasts... but that's what we got. Jack and Jeani and all of their staff were friendly and quick to help with whatever we needed. Bar Harbor is only a ten minute drive, but we were glad to make that drive because the Inn was away from the hustle and bustle; very relaxing. I hope we can become regulars!

The room and the view are outstanding. Jack and Jeani made us feel like home, not like quest but like friends.

The perfect spot for a relaxing, comfortable stay. The Inn is charming and friendly, and the views are outrageously stunning. It's only a quick five minutes to downtown, where during the high season, people are crawling like ants over everything. We spent several days exploring the island and other lodging options, and wouldn't hesitate to go right back to the Inn at Bay Ledge on our next trip. Thanks to Jack and Jeani for a wonderful experience. We look forward to visiting again.

This was my first visit to the Bar Harbor area and I was delighted with the staff, room, location, food and ambiance of the Inn at Bay Ledge. From the moment I arrived I was treated like a returning friend. Breakfast was delicious and plentiful. My room looked out over the lawn to the bay below and was immaculate and beautifully decorated. Do not miss the stairs to the beach below the Inn and the amazing tunnel cut through the cliff! At low tide you can walk along the beach and explore shallow caves carved in to the ledge and beautiful views of the harbor. About three miles outside of Bar Harbor, the Inn is a quiet and gentile island away from what can be a bustling and active downtown area. The entrance to Acadia National Park is just down the road. Staff recommendations for restaurants were excellent.

This inn is special and unique in many ways. It is sooooo Maineish and the inn keepers make you feel welcome and special. there is a totally COOL rocky cliff and shoreline which is fun to explore and has a surprise ! Lots of interesting tales to go along with the awesome gourmet breakfast. Rooms are very comfy. Close to everything but far enough away for some privacy.

This was our first experience staying at a bed and breakfast, we were very pleased. Jack and Jeani were wonderful and attentive as well as the staff. They offerred very good advice on where to eat and what to do in the area. The Inn was very comfortable and cozy with a lot of areas to sit and relax inside and out. The accomodations were very neat and clean and we really enjoyed eating breakfast on the veranda. We cannot say enough about the experience, we especially loved visiting with Woody and Pearl each morning! We will definitely stay at The Inn at Bay Ledge when we vacation in Bar Harbor again.
5 on September 07, 2012
We had the pleasure of staying at the Inn for two nights and cannot wait to return. The Inn is absolutely beautiful inside and out. The porch is where all of your cares melt away and the guest rooms are well appointed and extremely comfortable. Jack, Jeani, and everyone (including my four-legged friend Pearl) welcome you warmly and make every aspect of your stay thoroughly enjoyable. The breakfasts are unique and delicious, and we are still talking about the ginger squares we had at afternoon tea. Be sure to walk down the stairs to the beautiful beach below, explore the cave, and watch birds, seals, and porpoise play in Frenchman's Bay. Even though I have returned to reality my thoughts are still very much in Bar Harbor and the very special time spent at the Inn at Bay Ledge. Simply wonderful. Tena & Tom

The owners were great, very personable and sweet people. The cottage we stayed in (bear cottage) was quite larger than expected and the grounds lived up to the images, and don't even get me started on how delicious the food was! Plus they were very knowledgeable whn asking about restaurants to go to and things to do while there, they won't lead you astray! For everything that we were able to do there, the price was well worth it and my fiance and I will be going there from now on whenever we visit Bar Harbor! ~Mike Rullo and Danielle Dutil, Augusta, ME

We recently stayed at the Inn at Bay Ledge in Bar Harbor, Maine and it was one of our best and most relaxing vacations ever. The innkeepers Jack and Jeani are true professionals and have mastered the art of providing an outstanding experience for their guests. Rooms are beautifully and tastefully decorated - and spotless - with comfortable beds and attractive bedding. Breakfasts by Jeanni each morning are a gourmet delight served in an attractive dining room overlooking scenic Frenchmen's Bay. Jack has an engaging personality and is ever helpful, as is their staff, with providing useful tips on the area's sights, restaurants and directions. The Inn's location is secluded providing privacy and maximum relaxation but close by to the main attractions on Mt. Desert Island of Acadia National Park and the bustling downtown aea of Bar Harbor loaded with a range of great restaurants and interesting local shops. The lovely porch at the Inn, beautifully decorated with comfortable wicker furniture, is a great spot to spend a quiet and relaxing afternoon overlooking the water and the lovely gardens. Every day we looked forward to afternoon tea and homemade cookies and treats. Five stars for this exceptional inn. We'd highly recommend it!

Nicely situated with a great view and friendly innkeepers. But the public rooms and our room were crowded with all kinds of extraneous knicknacks and decorative items that are fussy and get in the way. (Bunnies on the bathroom rug?) The wall to wall carpeting needs to be replaced - or maybe bare wood floors would be much nicer.
Thank you for staying with us. I am sorry youdidn't care for our decor, everyone tastes are different. That is wahat makes life interesting! My great aunt was choosen to be one of the first illistrators for the American version of the Beatric Potter series. Needless to say, bunnies and whimzy have always been near and dear to my heart. I do hope in your future no one mistakes your treasures for extraneous knicknacks.

We really enjoyed the week-end we spent at the Inn at Bay Ledge. The rooms and the grounds were comfortable but at the same time immaculate and inviting. The staff was most helpful and the breakfast was delicious. The Covington's Dallas, TX

Original reservation was three nights but we added one additional night for a total of four night stay.

Jack and Jeani's attention to detail is impressive indeed. Our stay could not have been more delightful and relaxing. Perfect location to take in the beauty of Acadia and at the end of a full come back to rejuvenate ...the inn is a must see and we shall be back!

Jack & Jean were marvelous hosts. The place really is as quaint and charming as it appears in the photographs. There's a stairway down to a beautiful rocky beach with a cave, a spacious and very comfortable porch for napping and reading, and the common rooms are very good. There was a cozy wood fire by my room in the morning. The only thing I would have added was a nightstand in my room (I got a fairly small room, and there there just wasn't room for it the way it was laid out.) I will definitely go there again.
4.8 on July 25, 2012
We chose to stay in one of the three cottages across the street from the Inn. The cottage was clean and offered privacy from the guests in the lodge. The owners were friendly and gracious to all the guests. The weather was great and so breakfast for the two mornings that we attended was served on the porch. The quality of the food was great and the view begged you enjoy one more cup of coffee. We will definitely return to this B&B.
4.6 on July 24, 2012
Beautiful location and quiet. We stayed in a cabin across the street, but the main house was available. Breakfast was excellent!! Jack and Jean are wonderful hosts and we loved our stay.

We stayed at The Inn at Bay Ledge for 6 nights on our recent vacation to Bar Harbor, Maine. I must say, the Inn exceeded our expectations. The cottage that we stayed in was neat, roomy and very quiet. We were looking for a place away from the beaten path to relax with beautiful scenery and The Inn at Bay Ledge was perfect!. Jack and Jeani were perfect hosts and made us feel right at home. We loved our early morning chats with Jack over a hot cup of coffee on the porch. He gave us lots of tips on restaurants and things to do in the area. While we talked with him, Jeani was busy in the kitchen preparing a wonderful breakfast of fresh fruit, baked goods, pancakes, and homemade granola. Wonderful! We will definitely be back. We would highly recommend this inn to anyone looking to vacation in the Bar Harbor area. Tim and Debbie Flack

While our room was a bit small, the beautiful setting, wonderful food and welcoming innkeeper made our stay at Bay Ledge a winner! A wonderful place to enjoy the beauty of Maine.

Can't beat the view and the feel of the Inn. If you are looking for a New England get away, this is where to go! I had I lovely stay.
4.8 on July 14, 2012
The owners were great.very helpful with recommendations about local activities.breakfast was awesome.very relaxing location.
4.4 on July 09, 2012
We greatly enjoyed our time relaxing in this beautiful inn. Away from the town but still close enough to everything. The view is amazing and the owners make you feel like you are at home. We highly recommend this inn when in Bar Harbor. It is worth every penny.
5 on July 08, 2012
We had a wonderful room in the Bear Cottage. Breakfast each day was a enjoyable experience with wonderful food and wonderful hospitality. Each day of our stay we were able to go into the park and the staff gave us great recommendations on where to eat each night in Bar Harbor. This is a first class B&B. We will be back.
4.6 on July 05, 2012
The Inn at Bay Ledge is a great choice for people who like to be close to a resort town...without being overwhelmed by it. We loved the location--close to Acadia NP and Bar Harbor but away from the crowds. The rooms are comfortable and well appointed (though we were disappointed that they did not provide bathrobes) and the upper story rooms, in particular, have superb views. They provide an excellent breakfast and are accommodating hosts, helping us out with restaurant and activity suggestions.
5 on July 02, 2012
We stayed here for 3 nights of our honeymoon. Location was great for getting to the park and Bar Harbor eateries, but still provided a nice retreat for a little romance. Loved the view, and the breakfasts were good too. Will no doubt be coming back for anniversaries!
4.8 on June 28, 2012
We were looking for something out of the way and this was perfect. Jack and Jeani immediately make you feel like an invited guest rather than a paying customer. A lovely, relaxing retreat.
5 on June 28, 2012
This is a wonderful inn. The location is perfect and the views are spectular. We saw a bald eagle fly by when we were having lunch on the deck. The summer cottage is great, and Jack, the innkeeper, and his staff were great. We would definitely recommend this inn.
5 on June 27, 2012
The owners were wonderful people and made you feel right at home. They certainly have the best view in Bar Harbor and I would definitely go back for another visit.

My boyfriend and I are grad students, perhaps not the typical crowd for a place like this, but we like to treat ourselves now and then. This place was adorable! We stayed in the Bear Cottage. It was beautifully furnished, and the main building was great as well. We may not normally enjoy breakfast between 8 and 9am but it was well worth it to wake up "early" for the homemade meal and great service each morning. The scenic rocky beach out back was also a plus, as was the short (~15 minutes) drive to Bar Harbor and Acadia. The innkeepers were out of town for most of our time there but the woman left in charge was very helpful and personable, and our brief chat with the innkeepers proved the same for them. Overall, highly recommended.
4.6 on June 05, 2012
We planned a romantic and relaxing getaway weekend. The Inn at Bay Ledge was exactly the place we hoped to find. The innkeepers and assistants were extremely kind and helpful. The location was beautiful. We enjoyed our stay thoroughly.
5 on May 29, 2012
In 30 plus years of travel we have stayed at more than a hundred B&B's. The Inn at Bay Ledge is perehaps the best. We found the owners to be deligthful and very helpful. The views from the rooms are super. The location is great - quiet and only a 5 min ride to town. There is lots to do around Bar Harbor. We canoed, kayaked and hiked in Acadia NP. And of course there is the seafood. We are already talikng about a return visit.
4.8 on November 13, 2011
My wife & I, along with my sister and her husband spent some time at The Inn at Bay Ledge last July. I have never written a review before and it's taken me awhile to write this one. But the location, grounds and view at this inn are truly marvelous. Add to that an engaging and pleasant team of Jack, Jeani and Mady, a wonderful breakfast and a terrific restaurant recommendation for dinner made for an all around excellent experience. Were we to return to Bar Harbor--we know exactly where we would stay. Jack & Jeani were also very helpful in advance of our arrival.
3.6 on October 19, 2011
Peaceful, quiet, beautiful setting. Warm and friendly atmosphere. Wonderful breakfast. C lose enough to the town but far enough to retreat from the crowds in Bar Harbor
2.6 on October 16, 2011
The view was great, the rooms were ok. The sauna did not work all that well and was noisy. We left breakfast still feeling hungry, and they ran out of food towards the end of the hour. The same was true for the afternoon cookies. The innkeepers were nice enough.
5 on October 13, 2011
We loved the fact that this inn is off the beaten track and away from the cruise ship madness in the city of Bar Harbor. The inn was beautifully decorated for Halloween. Every detail was addressed. I loved the breakfasts, which were ample but not stuffing. There was plenty of food at the breakfast buffet table, and the main courses were artistically and deliciously prepared. Kudos to Jack and Jeani. They run a spectacular establishment.
5 on October 12, 2011
This B&B was not only charming and warm but the owner Jack made it special for us with his warm hospitiality and humor......
3.4 on October 11, 2011
The inn is very nice and in a beautiful location. Jack is very friendly and accommodating. A couple of things that would improve the place - the reservation system needs to be updated to allow for online bookings. As it is, the online system only allows you to make a request, you have to call to actually reserve a room. The request has a place for comments, but those were not carried forward to the reservation. The 2nd thing is that there were no gluten free breakfast options for my husband except for hard boiled eggs. Oat Cereal, oats and baked goods are not gluten free. He had to do with a small bowl of fruit for breakfast one morning. No seconds were offered and no other options were given. It was quite disappointing since there are so many gluten free items available in the grocery stores now and we have not had any issues at other inns and B&Bs.
5 on October 04, 2011
The innkeepers are amazing people and the accomodations were exceptional! The food and service was great! Our room was clean and neat and exactly what we wanted in a B&B. The innkeepers were great at giving us information on places/restaurants in the area and surrounding areas. My husband and I will definitely come back and stay at the Inn at Bay Ledge!!
4.0 on October 04, 2011
We loved our stay at the Inn. We had a glorious view from room, our deck, the lovely wicker furniture on the front porch, the breakfast room, and the adirondack chairs in the garden. The Inn was comfy and inviting. The Innkeepers Jack and Jeani were welcolming and friendly. Jeani made lovely breakfast offerings. Her creamy pesto sauce won my heart and stomache. We certainly recommend this beautiful Inn and give it 5 stars in all categories.
4.4 on October 03, 2011
This place doesn't do itself justice on the internet - it's the best place to stay in Bar Harbor by far!
2.8 on October 02, 2011
Pleasant location, quiet, outside of town but not remote. Our small room faced the porch, and other guests found the comfortable chairs outside our window inviting. Felt rushed to finish breakfast and get out of the way so staff could clean up. Would have like to dawdle more.
4.2 on September 28, 2011
Very enjoyable stay thanks to Jack, Jeani and thier staff. Jack was particularly helpful in advising us on where to go and what to see, especially some places that were off the beaten path. Their recommendations on dining were outstanding. The Inn is located a few miles from Bar Harbor in a beautiful and quiet setting. We highly recommend it.
4.6 on September 27, 2011
Beautiful view of the harbor. Very pleasant and helpful innkeepers. Most comfortable bed I've ever slept in. I do wish there was television in the rooms. I know people are there to relax and television is not a necessity but I like to become drowsy to a movie, especially in a small area like Bar Harbor where there is not a great deal of night life to occupy one beyond 8pm. I would return though, it was so comfortable.
4.0 on September 23, 2011
Jack's a great story teller and Jeani's a great cook. They make a great team as Inn Keepers. Beautiful setting and close to everything.
4.4 on September 22, 2011
We arrived a little late, and we were greeted by a very gracious hostess who made us feel very welcome. The Moose Cottage room was absolutely beautiful; I loved the Adirondack furniture and decor! Breakfast was outstanding on every one of our four mornings there.The views of Frenchman Bay and the private beach (wonderful!) made for a very romantic stay. We were very lucky to find such a special place. This combined with the beauty of Bar Harbor and Acadia National Park, made our long-awaited yet short vacation so
4.6 on September 21, 2011
My husband & I had a wonderful stay at the Inn at Bay Ledge. The staff is very friendly & helpful. The breakfast was presented warmly & the owners took the time to stop & chat with you as well. They made you feel like family. The scenery was beautiful as were the grounds! We would definitely stay there again!
4.6 on September 19, 2011
A great, quiet place overlooking the ocean. Rooms were very clean and quiet. Jack and Jeani are great hosts and the breakfast is gourmet. Very easy 5 - 10 minute drive into Bar Harbor and easy access to Acadia NP. We will be back.
4.6 on September 16, 2011
The overall appearance in delightful, landscaping is outstanding, rooms are charming victorian style, spotless interior and a breakfast above all expectations, truly home made scones, waffles and great coffee!

The Inn at Bay Ledge is one of the best run and clean B&B I've stayed at. The owners are wonderful people. I felt at home during my entire stay.

lovely bay view, great breakfast, helpful hosts. we stayed in 'cottages' which were comfortable but less cushy than the inn. easy drive in to Bar Harbor and Acadia.
5 on September 11, 2011
What a great find staying at the Inn at Bay Ledge! Quiet, pristine, coast line walk, with superb views. We felt very fortunate to locate this B&B. Highly recommend and when we return we will book again at Bay Ledge. Jack and Jeanne were wonderful to all their guests. Jeanne is a fabulous cook. Woodstock is a sweet heart. Much thought and detail has been given to this hideaway.
4.6 on September 06, 2011
Just a stone's throw away from Acadia National Park and the main town, the Inn at Bay Ledge was perfectly situated. Well appointed rooms and spectacular beach views.
4.0 on September 05, 2011
The inn keepers and staff are friendly and helpful, making one feel at home. Breakfasts are a real treat, with cheery service, great food, and a great view of Frenchman's Bay. The view from the top of Cathedral Rock and the beach are unique; there are few B&B inns that have direct water access. It is a lovely, quiet place, restores the body and soul. Overall exceeded expectations, feels like a "home away from home."
5 on September 02, 2011
Warmly welcomed as soon as we arrived. Magnificent view of the ocean from the lawn and sitting areas.Large swimming pool. Given a tour of the public areas.Tea, coffee, always available. Beautifully decorated. Many comfortable sitting areas. We felt right at home. Shown our lovely large room. Beautiful hand painted murals on walls. Canopied bed, sitting area, immaculate, well appointed bathroom. Private deck with chairs right outside our room. Breakfast served at tables in the dining room. We could choose to eat with others at a large table or by ourselves. Many interesting, friendly guests to chat with. Innkeepers had great ideas for daily activities and suggestions for restaurants and menus.

My husband and I just spent a week at The Inn at Bay Ledge (Bear Lodge) and were so impressed with the setting (pictures on website do not do it justice) and the peaceful atmosphere. Jack and Jeani, the owners, do a wonderful job in making all of their guests feel welcome and accommodated. They are very helpful with suggestions and recommendations for restaurants, activities, places to go, etc. This was our first trip to Maine and after going into Bar Harbor, which is only a 10 minute drive from the Inn, we were so glad we were not staying there due to the crowds of people and noise factor. The breakfasts and afternoon snacks are so delicious as Jeani is an accomplished cook and baker. We will definitely stay there again!
2.8 on August 30, 2011
Nice place, amazing views but a bit pricey. With tax our stay was over $400 for one night...kind of expected something more it was just sort of your run of the mill bed and breakfast at a nice place.
2.6 on August 25, 2011
It was very nice. Breakfast was okay, but expected more food. The room and view were great. Jack and Jeani were very nice and helpful with things to do around the area. The cookies in the afternoon were delish.
4.0 on August 22, 2011
The Inn at Bay Ledge was everything that we were looking for our week away from the kids and hecticness of our lives. The porch and ground were beautiful and very welcoming, the breakfast was served in a lovely environment and Jeani is a talented baker. The rooms very also very comfortable and the private beach provided a secluded place to take in the beauty of the area without the crowds of Acadia.
4.8 on August 22, 2011
Located but a few minutes' drive from bustling Bar Harbor, Bay Ledge offers quiet, casual, and comfortable elegance and a helpful, caring staff; its bayside location is superb, and everything about the place reflects the owners' good taste and emphasis on quality.
5 on August 19, 2011
We stayed here for 3 nights for our honeymoon and were so impressed. It's everything that you want in a private getaway - quiet (it's a few miles from downtown), romantic, cozy, and beautiful, not to mention right on the ocean! Jack and Jeannie and the staff and wonderful and make you feel right at home as soon as you arrive. The gourmet breakfasts alone are worth booking this place, we will be back!
4.8 on August 16, 2011
Fabulous place, amazing view and wonderful hosts. Not to mention the morning breakfast was delicious. We had an incredible stay and plan to come back again next year!!
5 on August 11, 2011
We decided to stay at the Inn at Bay Ledge in order to avoid the crowds and traffic right in Bar Harbor. It was in a peaceful setting, yet a very short drive to Bar Harbor and Acadia. The breakfasts were superb, as was the service. All of the staff were very attentive especially the innkeepers, Jack and Jeannie. Jack is one of those rare people that upon meeting him for the first time, you felt like you've known him for years. We wold definitely return.
5 on August 08, 2011
Spent 3 nites at the Inn and loved it. The grounds and gardens(can compete with Thuya Gardens any day)were lovely and delightful to look at with that second cup of coffee. The dining suggestions, and we tried all, included Thurstons, Abel's, Jordan Pond Restaurant, Galyn's and Reading Room were all scrumptious. Jeani and Jack (so proud of the inn and happy to point out treasures within) were great hosts along with Mady(rhymes with lady and Lucia. Of course, driving through and hiking in Acadia brought back memories of our trip from 38 summers past. We left with a promise to return next year and introduce the inn to lifelong friends from Newton Ma. Can't wait.
4.4 on August 08, 2011
We stayed in the Garden Room, which is the Inn's "budget room" and the only one without a view of the water. It was absolutely wonderful and we did not miss the ocean view at all because we could take advantage of the view from the terrace at breakfast time. The breakfast is delicious with a different baked good each morning, fresh granola, and a gourmet hot entree. The afternoon tea snacks are always freshly prepared and equally delicious. The inn keepers were very helpful at providing advice regarding daily activities and restaurants. We would definitely come back.

Would stay there again if in Bar Harbor. Only criticism was the bathroom in Room 8. Hot tub made the bathroom too small. It was difficult to use as a shower. Room 8 had a very nice porch and a great view of the bay.
3.4 on August 04, 2011
What a beautiful setting. We loved sitting on the porch and looking out over the bay. The room was clean and the bed comfortable. The owners are delightful and very helpful. The only disappointment was the breakfast.
4.6 on August 03, 2011
Very beautiful Inn. Our cottage was cosy and clean. The Innkeepers are very nice people. It is definetely worth the price.
4.6 on August 02, 2011
I've stayed at many B&B's and I must say, this is one of the better Inn's I have visited. I debated on staying downtown to be closer to the restaurants but I am so happy that I decided against it. The noise goes late into the night and very few of the affordable downtown B&B's have a nice view and the relaxing feel like the Inn at Bay Ledge. The breakfast at Bay ledge was wonderful and we really liked how you had several seating choices and were not forced to sit with others if you did not wish to. The view was spectacular. We opted to stay in one of the cottages across the street and I was very happy with our choice. Not only was the room spacious, much larger than most B&B rooms and VERY nice, but we had total privacy and a private porch. I took a peek into some of the main Inn rooms when they were open for cleaning and they were smaller then ours. The walk to the main inn only took 15 seconds and we had total access to the back porch of the inn to take in the beautiful view and the lawn lounge chairs to do our crossword puzzles after breakfast. I would most definately recommend this Inn for your stay.
4.4 on August 01, 2011
We stayed in the Bear Lodge. The room was amazing. We felt like we were tucked away from the world. It does only have a shower, but that was okay after hiking in Acadia all day. The bed was extremely comfortable and the breakfasts were delicious. You definately don't leave their hungry. Owners were very friendly and helpful. Would definately stay there again.
4.6 on July 31, 2011

Our stay here couldn't have been better. From cut flowers to homemade cookies each day this Inn exceeded our expectations. Jack and Jeani even provided us with a visit from a Bald Eagle.
4.2 on July 29, 2011
Inn keepers were very engaging and went out of their way to be helpful. Breakfasts were very good but not quite hearty enough for us.
5 on July 24, 2011
The Inn is beautiful and the garden, which overlooks the bay, is gorgeous. My favorite reading place is a perch on the cliff overlooking the bay. The breakfasts are delicious, beautifully presented and healthy, with freshly baked muffins and breads. The owners are knowledgable about area restaurants and activities and seem delighted to help make your stay a pleasant one. We would stay here again. Peg
3.4 on July 21, 2011
The view was tremendous and the grounds are beautiful. We really enjoyed our visit and hope we can go back again.
4.8 on July 17, 2011
The Inn at Bay Ledge is a very special treat. The minute you turn onto Sand Point Road you know that there is something very different about this inn. Perched on a cliff above the bay, the views are striking and spectacular. Once you walk inside this place you feel like you are home and you wish that it was your home. Extremely clean and comfortable. This is the best B&B I've ever had the fortune to visit. Thank you Jack and Jeani!
5 on July 14, 2011
Wonderful hospitality, they made us feel right at home. Great country breakfast in the morning, fresh flowers on all the tables fresh from their own gardens. The Inn is right on the ocean with a fantastic rocky beach! We couldn't have been more pleased with everything!
4.0 on July 12, 2011
My husband and I went on a road trip to Maine and had never stayed at a B&B before, so we thought we'd try it out. The Inn at Bay Ledge far exceeded our expectations. Everyone is very friendly and accommodating. The gourmet breakfasts were delicious, as were the afternoon tea and snack. The atmosphere was delightful and very fitting of the cheeriness of the area. The Inn's beach access allows a gorgeous walk on the beach (at low tide) and a beautiful view and photo ops of "The Ovens". We had a wonderful stay and would definitely stay again if we are in the area.
3.8 on July 03, 2011
Very nice rural setting, yet convenient to Bar Harbor and the national park. Owners were hospitable and interesting.

We've been going back to the Inn at Bay Ledge on Mount Desert Island for 15-20 years now--and each stay has been a real pleasure. From the peaceful surroundings to the picture-perfect view, gracious and informative hosts, delicious breakfasts (and afternoon snacks), excellent accommodations . . . well, it just doesn't get any better than this!!
4.6 on June 16, 2011
Jack and Jeani were the nicest couple and not only fed us the most wonderful breakfast every morning, but also gave us useful information while we were visiting Bar Harbor and Acadia. The Inn had a lovely view and garden area as well as a small cove that you can get to during low tide. We stayed in the bear cabin that was across the street from the inn somewhat secluded in the woods with a nice fire place on a cold night. If you are looking for a comfortable & quiet place to stay in Bar Harbor, I would certainly recommend this B&B. We enjoyed the area and towns and would certainly love to return to this Inn because Jack & Jeani made us feel like we were staying with family.

Fabulous hostess greeted us upon our arrival and gave us a tour of the facilities. The hostess and owners were very good resources to the local attractions.

Our flight to Portland left us straining to get to Bar Harbor before the early hours of the morning. I called on the drive up (about 9 PM), got Shirley who was very nice, telling me she'd leave the front door ajar and our key to our 'cottage', along with a note welcoming us on the front desk. We arrived at 12:30 AM, found the key and wonderful note. We made out way to our cottage, to find all the lights on and a fire going in the fireplace for us. Jack and Jean and Shirley KNOW hospitality......and I come from the south where it is our hallmark. The cottage was absolutely amazing, wonderfully decorated and more comfortable that we ever imagined. Combined with Jack and Jean's wonderful conversation and gourmet breakfasts every morning, we have already begun planning our trip back for September. The Inn is spectacular, as are the views from their comfortable back porch and large wonderfully landscaped yard. If you are going anywhere near Bar Harbor, THIS is the place to stay. Debbie and Bo Pittman

Overall the Inn was beautifully appointed and very warm and welcoming. Our room was beautifully decorated, with lots of personal touches. The service was extremely personable, professional and just the right touch for what we were looking for. The breakfast was excellent each day we were there. Enjoyed both Jack and Jeani thoroughly. We highly recommend it.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at The Inn at Bay Ledge. The owners' attention to every detail was outstanding. The inn and individual rooms were decorated exceptionally well.

My wife and I didn't have a room on the Sunday we arrived in Bar Harbor and decided to stay at a B&B for the first evening. We were not disappointed with this selection. We had a wonderful room, cozy with a fireplace, and the view was breathtaking. The hosts were very accommodating and breakfast was amazing. We would highly recommend this stay and will be sure to come back here on our next visit.

We found the Inn on-line while looking for something quiet and actually on the coast. Our experience there definitely exceeded our expectations: this should have been our destination, not just a stop! Jack and Jeani are great at making you feel at home in their lovely property. And the location above this high point on the coast is truly outstanding. Great place to get away from it all.

Just returned from a wonderful stay here. Jeani & Jack welcomed us into their beautifully picturesque Inn, accompanied by Jeani's incredible breakfasts. Having problems with our car, they immediately offered us theirs without hesitation! They couldn't have done more to make us feel welcome. We'll certainly be recommending The Inn at Bay Ledge to relatives and friends. Thank you!!!

Given the positive experiences we have had, my husband and I have chosen to return to the Inn at Bay Ledge for the last five years. We love the hospitality, speciality breakfasts and a comfortable room to relax in. We recommend this B & B, the Bar Harbor area, Acadia national Park and Jeani's cookies without hesitation!

My wife & I are really not Inn people but decided to stay at one while visiting Bar Harbor. Checked into the Inn at Bay Ledge & it just got better hour by hour. jack & jennie, the owners, could not have been more hospitable, friendly, & caring. I thought that i was staying with dear friends. Their inn is beautifully situated on the ocean ledge, cosy, clean, & their rooms are a treat just to see, let alone stay in. they serve breakfast only & jeanie provides a gourmet breakfast daily. From fresh fruit to homemade breads to muffins to soufles.....& it is just right. Jack is there at breakfast insuring that you have all that you want with jeanie's breakfasts from topping off your coffee to fresh whipped dairy butter for the hot muffins to jellies & jams that are made locally. He will also tell you stories about the island, suggest where to go for the day & inform you of the best places to eat lunch & dinner. Am I now a person who will always stay at inns...probably not but when I am on the Island here at bar harbor, The Inn at Bay Ledge will always be the place that we will stay at.

Our stay was the most relaxing week we have had in a long time. The inn, food and hospitality far exceeded what we had anticipated. Jack & Jeani made us feel right at home immediately. Could not have asked for anything more!

The Inn at Bay Ledge encompases everything that a Bed and Breakfast should be. Jack and Jeani couldn't be better hosts (as well as Woody, their beautiful dog) My fiance and I loved the food, the stories, and the beautiful setting that all make the inn a must see.

Bay Ledge is a delightful inn. There were 6 in our party and a good time was had by all. The setting is spectacular and attention given to guests is the best. Jack and Jean are wonderful hosts with spot on recommendations and delicious food. Everyone at Bay Ledge was more than accommodating. Thanks to all for a grand time!

Very enjoyable and relaxing place. Stayed 3 days. Breakfast variety each morning was good but we felt portion sizes, especially fruit cups, were small.

The Inn at Bay Ledge is a beautiful and peaceful place. Sitting on the veranda overlooking the bay and the well kept garden while sipping afternoon tea was absolutely delightful! Our room in Deer Cottage had a wonderful bed and decorated with an upscale country feeling. We will definitely return to visit breathtaking Mount Desert Island and be pampered at the Inn at Bay Ledge! Maria and Ed Church

I have wanted to visit the Bar Harbor area for a long time. So once my visit was scheduled, I spent hours online trying to find the "best" B&B available. I feel like I succeeded by selecting The Inn at Bay Ledge--which (unlike so many inns) is even better on site than online! Everything about this incredible inn is top-notch, and it has the added benefit of being a waterfront property with its own private beach. I have visited hundreds of B&Bs in this country and abroad, and I can vouch for The Inn at Bay Ledge being a classy inn which is only rivalled by the exceptional service, attention-to-detail, and gracious hospitality of the on-site owners and staff. I hope to visit this beautiful area of the country again. When I do, Inn at Bay Ledge is where I plan to stay.
