My husband and I were lucky enough to stumble onto this DELIGHTFUL bed and breakfast. Is is brand new with old world charm - a home to envy. Located half mile from a lesser known beach on Frenchman's Bay, this gem is off the beaten path and still close to all the attractions of Arcadia National Park. Drive over to Mt. Dessert Island to hike the beautiful mountains of Arcadia, or call the local kayak delivery man and kayak the calm waters of the bay - complete with eagles, seals, and dolphins. Return to your beautiful and peaceful room at Chocolate Chip B & B. Sue will cook you the BEST breakfast ever and she will make her delicious creations to your wants and needs (gluten-free, vegan, etc). Her gluten-free cookies and muffins were as good as her fabulous wheat-made ones. Eric and Sue are kind and caring. They thought of everything to make us feel welcomed and our stay comfortable. Ask them to tell you their story - it is inspiring! We can't wait to return.

Sue and Eric did a wonderful job of taking an old home and rebuilding it into a bed and breakfast. They tore down the barn and used it in building onto the home. The hospitality was great and Eric provided local travel tips. Sue's breakfasts were wonderful. It was very clean. Sitting on the front porch rockers in the morning with a cup of coffee added to our vacation and relaxation. It was wonderful and we would stay there again. We stayed two nights.

My husband and I found this wonderful B&B online and were immediately attracted to the delicious sounding name. Chocolate chip cookies at bedtime...how couldn't that be perfect? This adorable yellow house far exceeded our expectations. Sue and Eric tell a wonderful history of the making of this house -- how it was the dream of theirs to create a piece of home for Maine travelers. Six years of labor, love, energy, and time ... and what a beautiful product! The wooden flooring is gorgeous, and this family renovated everything themselves (tore down the barn and used the wooden paneling throughout --Work of art! You should ask to see the original photos to compare!) The new renovations include 5 guest rooms that are thoughtfully and uniquely decorated. Sue makes her own quilts for each room! We stayed in the "Mrs. Muir's Room" (Nautical Room) -- lots of natural sunlight, beautiful decor, comfortable bed, and spacious bathroom! Views of both garden and pond. Each of their five children named a room, so each have their own personality and charm. We stayed 2 nights and the first morning Sue made us delicious Belgian waffles, yogurt & granola, and sausages. The second morning was white chocolate pudding parfait, Snickerdoodle muffins, and strata. Absolutely perfect both meals! True to the name "Chocolate Chip B&B," both breakfasts had sprinkles of chocolate chips cleverly incorporated into each. If you have a sweet tooth, this is going to be your breakfast heaven! (and if you don't, you can ask Sue to make you anything to your liking!) Both Sue and Eric were very gracious hosts and offered many recommendations on activities to fill our remaining days in Bar Harbor. There is plenty of lounging space (library, living room, large breakfast room, etc.) with books, magazines, and games. We also had a nice jog/walk along the beach and cooled off on the rocking chairs on the front porch afterward. We had such a wonderful time staying with Sue and Eric, and will be sure to return!

The rooms are fantastic, the food is great, the establishment is perfect. The location is ideal and the morning sun coming thru the east side windows was refreshing. Eric and Sue treat you like family, and are very warm and easy to talk to. I didn't want to leave! Give it a shot...you will not be disappointed!

We often travel to the near by Lamoine beach. We loved the outside appearance of this B&B. So for our anniversary we gave them a call. Eric and Sue are amazing hosts. Our room had everything we needed and was clean. The main gathering areas were stocked with games, book and puzzles. Our favorite part of our weekend away were the quiet mornings with coffee and a lovely breakfast! We will be making this a semi annual place to stay! ~ Mr and Mrs Dorr

Visiting the Chocolate Chip B&B was a welcomed experience. Hosts Eric and Sue have thought of everything to make a guest feel at home, from homemade quilts on the beds, public rooms full of books for leisurely reading, rocking chairs on the porch and especially the Belgian waffles for breakfast. If you are fortunate, you might even be treated to the duckling parade, as momma leads her brood to the pond on the property. A photo opportunity not to be missed. I definitely recommend the Chocolate Chip B&B for a relaxing get-away. A Connecticut traveler.
