Bar Harbor's best kept secret

5 on July 10, 2014

The owners have spent a lot of time and attention to detail for their Inn that opened July of 2013 and as a result, we (and their other guests) were treated to a wonderful vacation retreat. We woke up to a delicious breakfast daily, the spacious rooms were fresh and crisp, and the bathrooms were also large and very clean also. Kim and Jerry took the time to get to know everyone and were able to recommend areas to visit around town and along the coast. Kim even made reservations for us at a restaurant in town on our first evening when we arrived late in the afternoon. You can't go wrong staying here! We loved it!


Married at our Favorite B&B!

5 on April 23, 2014

We found this beautiful B&B a couple years ago, and just can't get enough! It has become part of our story, as we stayed our first night the day before my husband proposed in Hulls Cove! Quickly we made friends, and we just can't get enough of them or Bar Harbor! Soon after he proposed, we planned a small intimate ceremony to be married, and it could not have been more perfect. Kim and Jerry opened their doors to us and we have the most beautiful pictures of us getting ready with our bridal party and preparing flowers, and unforgettable experience when we tied the knot right there at the Inn! This is going to be our spot for years to come, and we are so fortunate to have made such great friends and created such amazing stories already!


Lovely and friendly place

We stayed at the Stone Throw in Aug. and had a wonderful time. The place is very clean and the breakfast was top rate. The service was beyond wonderful, my husband even received a special made breakfast because he doesn't care for blueberries. Highly recommend.


A great stay

Stones Throw Cottage was an excellent experience. The Inn Keeper, was well informed regarding the area, and recommended several great things to do. The wonderful breakfast were great to come back to after an early morning hike. I would love to go there again.


Fantastic stay at Stone Throw Cottage

We were a little late arriving and Kim and Jerry were so accomodating. What a beautiful cottage. It was perfectly appointed and very clean and bright. The high ratings are trully earned. My wife and I had such a fine time in Bar Harbor and the Stone Throw Cottage was a big part of it. I would reccommend it to anyone.


Best Bed and Breakfast in Bar Harbor!

5 on February 15, 2014

So so comfortable, warm and inviting! our breakfasts were to die for! So helpful and informative.


This was a lucky find for us!!!!!

We were unable to lengthen our stay at another B&B so the innkeepers referred us to the STONES THROW COTTAGE. The accommodations were clean and comfortable. It was within walking distance to downtown Bar Harbor shops and restaurants. The breakfasts were quite gourmet, delicious and suited to each quest. By far the best part were the innkeepers who are warm and friendly. They were available to prove information about the area and make helpful suggestions. I highly recommend this B&B and would definitely return.

I treated myself to a weekend in their beautiful bed and breakfast. I own a home on the island but when the hustle and bustle of the summer visitors overtook my home:) I retreated into town for a relaxing stay The breakfast was amazing, but most of all the family was welcoming and i was truly relaxed and rejuvenated when i left!
