Anne's White Columns Inn, an impressive Georgian structure, is located in the Historical Corridor in downtown Bar Harbor. Upon entering through the columned portico, one is greeted by the Victorian elegance of the foyer and salon. The huge fireplace is often crackling in spring and fall. The large wicker attired porch provides a peaceful setting for a leisurely breakfast, or your glass of wine and cheese during those long summer afternoons. The spacious grounds are a haven from the downtown activity but still convenient to the shops and restaurants.

Nice stay in Bar Harbor!

4.4 on October 01, 2014

Anne's is a very nice place to stay while visiting one of America's real gems--Acadia National Park and Mt Desert Island. Our room was cozy, spotlessly clean and competitively priced for this market. The breakfasts were outstanding and the Innkeeper and staff were wonderful! Highly recommend this B&B

We enjoyed our stay at Anne's White Columns Inn so much that we plan to return next summer! Everything was wonderful from the room, the wine social, and the breakfast. It was a short walk to the town where there are many great restaurants.

Very impressive looking B&B, very clean and bright, nice rooms, and excellent breakfast. The check-in person (not B&B owner) was very nice and great communication skills, had some excellent suggestions for dinner and activities.

wonderful stay

A fine stay

The only negative was the fact that the innkeepers were never there. It's always nice to interact with the owners. It caused the stay to seem more like a hotel than a B&B.

Innkeeper Response
At Anne's White Columns Inn, our goal is to provide a "personal touch". As owner/innkeeper, I am on site each day from 7:00 AM - 3:00 PM to provide information and local tips to enhance our guests stay in Bar Harbor. I do not know the exact day of the reviewers stay. I was out of state on a family emergency four days in September. I am pleased my staff provided them with excellent service. I hope to meet them when they next return to Bar Harbor. Robert Bahr, Owner/Innkeeper.

We were warmly welcomed and attentively accommodated during our stay at Anne's White Collumns Inn. The breakfasts were delicious and generous! We enjoyed the company of both the guests and the host during our stay! Thank you!

Incredibly relaxing 3 days

I am not sure if there is a better host than Bob. His knowledge of the area, his sense of humor and engaging conversation were most enjoyable. The Inn itself is just lovely and centrally located so we could walk everywhere. The rooms were clean and well-appointed. We will definitely return!
