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 place, conveniently located. Noisy. Small bathroom made sharing challenging.

We stayed in here because we wanted easy access to the park with safe easy walks to a choice of resturants for dinner. It met all of this but in addition the wine & cheese reception and breakfast arrangements meant we met other guests in a freindly family atmosphere which addaed to our experience

In general, very nice accomdations although we had 3 in our room which meant we needed a cot for my son. The cot was extremely flimsy with a thin mattress but my son didn't complain.. Very tasty breakfast and located about 8 minute walk to the "main" street in Bar Harbor. Other rooms in the house were even nicer but more pricy. Only spent two nights and not enough time to see it all but beautiful coastal area.

Three night stay could not have been nicer. Hospitality is at the forefront. Combine that with the perfect location and you have a winning combination. The hosts are concerned about your welfare and your stay and are extremely knowledgeble about the area. It's a larger B and B but we never felt less cared for. Thank you

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

fall visit to Acadia National Park and Bar Harbor area,
Downtown, Island, Oceanside, Village
Bangor, ME (BGR) 60 miles
Driving to Bar Harbor: Bar Harbor is easily accessible by car. From Boston (268 miles) - follow Interstate 95 through to Bangor (exit 45-A - 395), then pick-up on Rt.1A to Ellsworth, and follow Rt.3 to Bar Harbor. Another route would be to take I-95 to Augusta, take Route 3 to Belfast over to Route 1 to Ellsworth, then back to Route 3 into Bar Harbor. There is also the coastal route #1. It meanders thought the picturesque villages and takes quite a bit longer to reach Bar Harbor. By Air: Bar Harbor is serviced by a local airport, the Hancock County Airport, located just 12 miles from the village, and by Bangor International Airport only 50 miles away. Bus Service: During the summer months, Bar Harbor is serviced by Greyhound/Vermont Transit from Boston. Since schedules vary, it is best to check with the bus line.
