Just what you'd wish for in a BnB
on August 20, 2015
Situated about 25 minutes outside Bar Harbor, we appreciated the quiet and serene locale. Owners Sue and Eric warmly greet you upon arrival and have genuine interest in your trip, goals for the stay, and seem to really wish to get to know you.
The house is a beautiful renovation of an existing structure from the 1800's, I think it used to be a school house, but you'd never guess from the homey atmosphere and wonderful additions to the original building. The rooms were very comfortable and quaintly decorated. Had we more time we'd have enjoyed spending a full day or two just relaxing in the house.
The namesake is apt - chocolate chip cookies awaited us in our room and there were always scones or banana bread or some other treat available downstairs. Breakfast was wonderfully prepared and delicious. Sue is a great cook.
Upon leaving we felt as family almost and our group exchanged hugs with Sue and Eric. We loved our stay and hope to return for longer in the future. Highly recommended!
Very cozy B&b
on August 10, 2015
We stayed here overnight and really enjoyed it. The b&b is clean and has a nice common area with lots of books, bowrd games and puzzles. There is a nice front porch with rocking chairs where you can enjoy a morning cup of coffee. Rooms and bathrooms are really clean. Sue prepared a wonderful breakfast and helped us with directions. I definitely recommend it!

I stayed here for one night in July and wish I had stayed for longer! The hosts were the most gracious and welcoming hosts I've ever met at a B&B. Although a good 25 minute drive from Bar Harbor, that ended up being a blessing because I got the best sleep due the peace and quiet. The house is all very homespun and comfy, which seems very fitting for the area. The rooms and particularly the bathroom were bigger than I was expecting given the price per night - a real value in this area! Breakfast was delicious, three courses, all hot and fresh. Coffee available all day, ample parking, free and good wifi, maps and books of area available for loan, and chocolate chip cookies were yummy! Really flexible hosts, no stuffy "rules" like a lot of B&B's have. Didn't make time to sit on the front porch and read a book, but next time I definitely will, and there WILL be a next time. Love it!
Excellent Stay at the Chocolate Chip Bed and Breakfast Inn
on August 23, 2014
For our Maine summer vacation, my wife and I stayed four nights at the cozy and rustic Chocolate Chip Bed and Breakfast Inn (St. Germain Room) in the small town of Lamoine - about a half hour drive from Bar Harbor but on the doorstep of Lamoine Beach and Lamoine State Park. Sue and Eric are excellent and knowledgeable hosts who will make your visit to their inn a special one; they are very nice. If you have any dietary needs or restrictions (e.g., gluten free, lactose free), they will do their best to accommodate them. In addition, they can provide great recommendations for things to see and do, places to eat, and other events of interest. The inn is exceptionally clean and new (the owners built much of it themselves - a true labor of love - and opened it just a few years ago); the breakfasts are terrific; and the surroundings are peaceful with a nice pond on the grounds. We highly recommend this inn to anyone visiting the Downeast Acadia region.
Excellent and wonderful stay

We enjoyed our stay at Chocolate Chip Bed & Breakfast very much. This was definitely the best B&B during our holiday! Sue and Eric are perfect hosts, very warm and welcoming. Their house is wonderful decorated and spotless clean. In the evening we enjoyed choclate chip cookies and in the morning we had delicious breakfast. This is the perfect location for relaxing and exploring the Acadia National Park!
comfortable, homey B&B

Chocolate chip bed and breakfast
on July 12, 2014
A MUST visit B&B
on August 26, 2013
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.
Dream little chocolate chip cottage by the sea!
on July 14, 2013
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!
