We were very pleased with our stay in Southwest Harbor at the Clark Point Inn. Mark and Jennifer could not have been friendlier with good advice on where and what to see next as dictated by the weather. A three course breakfast started every day and treats were available in the dining area at all times. We had a very nice room with a gas fireplace and a lovely view of the harbor. We would certainly not have a problem recommending this place to anyone visiting the area and would very likely return ourselves should we come back to Maine.

We have been at The Clark Point Inn for a week. It is lovely with a most spectacular view of Southwest Harbor from our room. Jennifer makes a three course breakfast every morning including soufflés, fruit, frittatas, waffles, and eggs. And the daily cookies are a must have. The location is within walking distance of the town and there are many other streets close by providing great walks. It would be a pleasure to return here. Thanks Mark and Jennifer for a wonderful visit.

We stayed here for two nights to celebrate our 10 year anniversary and it was perfect! The food was amazing and the place was pristine! We would definitely go there again and we were glad that we didn't stay on bar harbor! It was quiet and peaceful and an easy drive away from the hustle and bustle.

My husband and I stayed at the inn for 2 nights to celebrate his graduate degree. The ratings of outstanding are all well deserved. The inn is beautifully maintained and decorated. Our room while on the 3rd floor and a bit of climb, was lovely. Most B&B's don't have televisions which is nice, but it was also very nice to have television and DVD player in the room to enjoy a movie at the end of a day of sightseeing in the beautiful Southwest Harbor area. Jennifer and Mark prepared and served a fabulous breakfast each morning. The food was delicious with a gorgeous presentation. They were warm and welcoming. We felt like welcome guests in their lovely home. We will definitely stay here again when in the area.

We stayed at Clark Point Inn for 6 days, and it was a fabulous choice. Not wanting to stay in the busy, bustling, bus loaded zone of Bar Harbor, we choose the Inn which was a brilliant decision. We were greeted warmly by Jennifer & Mark to a Inn which took you back in time with the lovely antique furniture and glassware throughout. Our room, Jordyn Lea, was also lovely with a comfy loveseat & comfortable bed & beautiful views of the Harbor. Awakening each morning to the delicous smells wafting up from the kitchen set the pace for the day. Jennifer & Mark, both accomplished self taught cooks, surprised us each morning with a mouth~watering 3 course breakfast, including fresh fruit kicked up a notch (Brueled Grapefruit), souflees, crepes, waffles, muffins & perfectly cooked egg dishes. This set us up to enjoy a day of hiking and exploring the Acadia National Park only 30 min drive away. Returning to the Inn in the afternoon you are greeted with cheese & crackers, and later in the evening after having a fabulous meal at Red Sky Restaurant &/or Fiddlers (both within walking distance of the Inn) you are greeted with yummy cookies. Espresso available all day and an extensive tea selection end your evening. If we found ourselves back in Maine, we would happily visit Jennifer & Mark.

Great location, views of the harbor. Near by Bar Harbor and Acadia. Amazing breakfast and friendly, well-informed hosts.

The innkeepers, Jennifer & Mark, were very welcoming and helpful. The inn is beautifully decorated and well-maintained. We've stayed in many B&B's in the US and Europe, and this was one of the best. The breakfast was fabulous

The Clark Point Inn was an incredible place to stay while exploring Acadia! My husband and I stayed there three nights and were impressed by the beautiful and spotless inn and rooms and the delicious breakfasts and treats. The innkeepers were very friendly and accommodating and went above and beyond to make us feel at home!

From the very first day, we felt at home. Mark & Jennifer are extremely gracious & friendly hosts -- we felt like we'd known them for years! The room was immaculate and beautiful -- the perfect couples' retreat. The breakfasts were not only delicious but beautifully presented, as if from a gourmet chef!

The Amelia room at this B&B was just lovely -- accommodated to me as I am handicapped. beautiful presentation of breakfast. They think "out of the box." Highly recommend this place!

It's not often that "what you see is what you get", but with Clark Point Inn that's exactly what happened. What you see on their website is exactly what we experienced. Jennifer and Mark were fabulous hosts, the rooms were wonderful, the Inn is very well kept, and the breakfasts were out of this world. We even had some chocolate dipped strawberries to help us celebrate our 15 year anniversary! We would highly recommend this Inn as a great alternative to busy Bar Harbor and in the off season, the short 15 minute drive into Bar Harbor felt like nothing. Thanks so much!

Beautiful, cozy inn in Southwest Harbor. We were warmly welcomed and shown to a beautiful room, Benjamin Jacob. It was clean as can be, a crisp blue with touches of white and yellow. Anything you could want was available in the room as well as a small reading library and DVD collection. There is a large shower in the three piece bathroom and coordinating colored towels not the standard white of most motels. The home is charming victorian in style but has all modern conviences. Breakfast was a fantastic event each morning with three courses of unique combinations that left your not just satisfied but stuffed. I will be back and have already booked a trip as a gift for later this summer.

My partner and I visited maine to see the fall colors. Our trip was made even more enjoyableby our stay at Clark Point Inn, with marvelous food, including chocolate chip cookies for an evening snack. Mark & Jen are gracious hosts and yes the colors at the inn matched the gorgeous fall foliage.

The room was clean and very comfortable. The fireplace in the room was cozy and fantastic. And the breakfasts were to die for. Jennifer and Mark are very nice and gracious hosts. We felt right at home there. And the location was excellent - minutes from Acadia and Bar Harbor.

Elegance, comfort, privacy and the coast of Maine -- could anyone want more? How about gourmet breakfasts, Arcadia National Park, fishing villages and Bar harbor with a cozy room to ome back to. It was wonderful. Guests included newlyweds, birthdays, business trips and vacationers.
So glad you enjoyed your time in the area and your time spent with us at the inn. We loved having you!

We could not have been happier with our stay here! Everything from the room to the service to the OUTSTANDING breakfast was totally above and beyond our expectations. Mark and Jen are wonderful hosts and absolutely make you feel at home from the moment you get there. Jennifer's fresh-baked cookies were a fantastic treat to come "home" to after a day of hiking in Acadia, and we can't say enough about the breakfasts! I even took pictures, it was as pretty as it was delicious! This was our first stay in Maine, and we were so sad that we could only stay two nights. We will definitely be coming back, and will definitely be staying at this B&B again!
Thank you so much for your wonderful compliments! We look forward to seeing you again soon! We are happy to be able to call Maine our home state. We're glad you enjoyed it as much as we do.
5 on June 30, 2009
This is the best B&B we have ever stayed at. The hosts treated us as family and the food was exceptional. I would recommend this inn to anyone.

Visiting Maine for the first time left me wanting to come back again and again. I will absolutely say that Mark and Jennifer at Clark Point Inn made the stay for us so much more memorable. The breakfast was outstanding every morning. ALL the extras were so personal and thoughtful and their sweet conversations made me feel right at home. You can definitely tell these two Love what they do. Thank you Mark and Jen.
Thank You! We enjoy meeting each of our guests and being able to chat with everyone. We are enjoying every minute of our innkeeping careers! See you again sometime!

We are happy you enjoyed your guestroom, your time at Clark Point Inn & in Southwest Harbor! Thank You

We've stayed at many B&B's but none compare to the hospitality we received here! Every detail is perfectly covered in the rooms, the service and the food! Everything is very well appointed and Mark and Jennifer make you feel like you are home. Southwest Harbor is close to the park, but out of the hubbub of Bar harbor. we'll return for the quiet, the hospitality, and the wonderful breakfasts!
Thank you so much for the compliments! We try very hard to please. Hope to see you again soon!

My husband I recently spent 3 wonderful days at the Clark Point Inn. Mark and Jennifer were perfect hosts. Our room on the 3rd floor had a beautiful view of the harbor. Breakfast was something of a 5 star restaurant. The Inn is located within easy walking distance of several great restaurants and being here we escape the mob at Bar Harbor yet, it was in easy driving distance to Acadia Natl Park and Bar Harbor.
Thank you, we appreciate your glowing review! We always love to hear how guests enjoyed their time with us. You are welcome back anytime you are in the area!
4.2 on September 30, 2008
Clark Point Inn is a beautiful B&B just steps from the Cranberry Insland ferry and an easy walk to Southwest Harbor restaurants and a great lobster pier. Mark & Jennifer bought the business last year. They are great hosts and the 3-course breakfasts are delicious! Very accommodating! 6 rooms w/ private baths.
Thank you! We have accomplished many things at the Inn in our first year & we hope to only get better as time goes on. Hope to see you again sometime!
4.6 on September 11, 2008
wonderful, exceptionally good breakfast and excellently located off the standard Acadia tourist paths, thanks Mark and Jennifer for the Acadia tips and good library of local guidebooks, brownies highly recommendable
Thank You! We are happy to be of assistance. Let us know the next time you are in town & we'll have a pan of brownies waiting for you!

Best B&B breakfasts we've ever had! Mark and Jennifer were extremely welcoming and helpful, our room was both attractive and comfortable and the views were spectacular! A little more than we had originally planned on paying, but well worth it.
Wow! We are touched by your wonderful compliments! Thank you so much!
4.6 on August 20, 2008
Our stay at Clark Point Inn was truely enjoyable. Our room was beautifully decorated, very comfortable and very clean, as was the bathroom. Our breakfast meals looked elegant and were delicious.

Thank you for your wonderful thoughts! We are always pleased to know our guests enjoyed their time with us. See you again soon!

We stayed at this B&B for 4 nights in August. We continued on to spend 9 nights along the coast of Maine. This Inn was the highlight of our trip. The hosts, Jennifer and Mark made us feel right at home. The room was comfortable and had a gorgeous view of the harbor. The breakfasts were beautiful and delicious. Jennifer also made homemade goodies every afternoon. Southwest Harbor was a good choice over Bar Harbor. It is still convenient to Acadia, but quieter. We also got great tips from our hosts on places to eat and tours.
Thanks so much! Hope you enjoyed your vacation to Maine! It is a great state to explore. We are native Mainers, so that has much to do with why we feel that way. If you are ever in our neck of the woods again, please, feel free to stop by & say "hello"!
5 on August 11, 2008
We have stayed at the Inn numerous times. This was the first time new owners Jennifer and Mark. It is now gourmet. We will continue staying there and recommed it highly.
Thank you very much for your recommendation! See you again soon!

Room looking over the harbor. Great night's sleep in a comfortable bed. Congenial conversation over a first rate breakfast. All in all...a real treat.
Thank You! We enjoy good food & good conversation & we love to hear that our guests do too. Hope to see you again sometime!

My girlfriend and I traveled to Maine for the first time this July. We discovered the Clark Point Inn by searching the Internet. What we discovered was a gem of a place. We stayed in the Madison suite. The rooms was spacious with a comfortable bed, sofa, wine chiller, and fireplace. The bathroom was also well appointed. The service was exceptional. Jennifer and Mark go out of their way to make sure their guests are comfortable and satisfied. Mark was helpful in providing a ton of information on Acadia National Park. His books, maps, and restaurant recommendations were invaluable. Jennifer was also extremely helpful. The breakfasts consisted of three courses. Each course consisted of foods with the freshest ingredients. They were quite filling. The coffee and fresh juices were great too. We particularly enjoyed having breakfast out on the front porch while enjoying the view of the harbor. The house is set in Southwest Harbor, a quite town on the island, but close enough to Acadia National Park and Bar Harbor. I would highly recommend this bed and breakfast. I can't wait to go back. I am also recommending this bed and breakfast to all of my friends and family. Thank you again Jennifer, Mark, and Maddie for a wonderful Maine vacation. Richard and Marta from Miami, FL
Thank You Richard & Marta! It was a pleasure meeting you both. If you ever visit Maine again please stop by to say hello!

Superb hosts. Lovely inn and setting. Could not have asked for a better first stay in Maine. The breakfasts are wonderful. We will return.
Thank You! We are delighted that we were able to help make your first visit to Maine a great one! See you again soon!

young, eager to please innkeepers, are very welcoming and hospitable. The rooms are comfortable with harbor view. The breakfast were more than ample, would prefer a little less sweet food. A comfortable common area would be welcome for those days when you just want to hunker down and read a good book.
We appreciate your thoughts! Breakfasts alternate each day between savory & sweet.We make every attempt to be flexible & always let guests know that we are willing to accommodate culinary preferences.Our Inn does lack a living room common area due to the smaller size of our home as compared to other Inns. However, our guestrooms are more spacious than average & each room has a sitting area with a loveseat. Some rooms also have rocking chairs, a bistro set or full size sofa. We welcome & truly appreciate all feedback from our guests! Hope to see you again sometime!

We selected this place due to the location and the other reviews. We wanted to be close to Bar Harbor but didn't want to be in the middle of the hustle. Also wanted to experience the peacefullness of Acadia and to enjoy quality lobster and seafood. The Clark Point Inn was everything we wanted and more. Mark and Jennifer are nice gracious hosts, the facilities are in top notch condition and very comfortable, the location could not be better. 20+ minutes to Bar Harbor for poking and shopping, the national park is next door, and Beales lobster pier is a 10 minute walk. Plan on gaining weight as the meals at the Inn are out of this world. All in all an exceptional experience. One we will reccommend to all who are heading this way.
Thank you very much for the recommendation! Many guests comment on our Inn's convenient "Quietside" location, whether it be for water views or shopping & dining. So glad you were pleased!
