Spectacular Stay on Mt Desert Island

4.8 on September 12, 2014

Clark Point Inn provided a friendly family atmosphere, a beautiful room, amazing breakfasts and gracious hospitality. The Inn will definitely be our destination when we return to Acadia, Maine.


Clark Point Inn in May 2014

4.8 on May 13, 2014

We were very pleased with our stay in Southwest Harbor at the Clark Point Inn. Mark and Jennifer could not have been friendlier with good advice on where and what to see next as dictated by the weather. A three course breakfast started every day and treats were available in the dining area at all times. We had a very nice room with a gas fireplace and a lovely view of the harbor. We would certainly not have a problem recommending this place to anyone visiting the area and would very likely return ourselves should we come back to Maine.


The Clark Point Inn is wonderful!

We have been at The Clark Point Inn for a week. It is lovely with a most spectacular view of Southwest Harbor from our room. Jennifer makes a three course breakfast every morning including soufflés, fruit, frittatas, waffles, and eggs. And the daily cookies are a must have. The location is within walking distance of the town and there are many other streets close by providing great walks. It would be a pleasure to return here. Thanks Mark and Jennifer for a wonderful visit.


Best choice

5 on July 08, 2013

We stayed here for two nights to celebrate our 10 year anniversary and it was perfect! The food was amazing and the place was pristine! We would definitely go there again and we were glad that we didn't stay on bar harbor! It was quiet and peaceful and an easy drive away from the hustle and bustle.


Fabulous Vacation

5 on June 24, 2013

My husband and I stayed at the inn for 2 nights to celebrate his graduate degree. The ratings of outstanding are all well deserved. The inn is beautifully maintained and decorated. Our room while on the 3rd floor and a bit of climb, was lovely. Most B&B's don't have televisions which is nice, but it was also very nice to have television and DVD player in the room to enjoy a movie at the end of a day of sightseeing in the beautiful Southwest Harbor area. Jennifer and Mark prepared and served a fabulous breakfast each morning. The food was delicious with a gorgeous presentation. They were warm and welcoming. We felt like welcome guests in their lovely home. We will definitely stay here again when in the area.


Six Days Of 'Delicious' Peace

4.6 on November 02, 2012

We stayed at Clark Point Inn for 6 days, and it was a fabulous choice. Not wanting to stay in the busy, bustling, bus loaded zone of Bar Harbor, we choose the Inn which was a brilliant decision. We were greeted warmly by Jennifer & Mark to a Inn which took you back in time with the lovely antique furniture and glassware throughout. Our room, Jordyn Lea, was also lovely with a comfy loveseat & comfortable bed & beautiful views of the Harbor. Awakening each morning to the delicous smells wafting up from the kitchen set the pace for the day. Jennifer & Mark, both accomplished self taught cooks, surprised us each morning with a mouth~watering 3 course breakfast, including fresh fruit kicked up a notch (Brueled Grapefruit), souflees, crepes, waffles, muffins & perfectly cooked egg dishes. This set us up to enjoy a day of hiking and exploring the Acadia National Park only 30 min drive away. Returning to the Inn in the afternoon you are greeted with cheese & crackers, and later in the evening after having a fabulous meal at Red Sky Restaurant &/or Fiddlers (both within walking distance of the Inn) you are greeted with yummy cookies. Espresso available all day and an extensive tea selection end your evening. If we found ourselves back in Maine, we would happily visit Jennifer & Mark.


Awesome vacation

Best Breakfast Ever

5 on July 30, 2012

The innkeepers, Jennifer & Mark, were very welcoming and helpful. The inn is beautifully decorated and well-maintained. We've stayed in many B&B's in the US and Europe, and this was one of the best. The breakfast was fabulous


Perfect Vacation!

4.8 on July 18, 2012

The Clark Point Inn was an incredible place to stay while exploring Acadia! My husband and I stayed there three nights and were impressed by the beautiful and spotless inn and rooms and the delicious breakfasts and treats. The innkeepers were very friendly and accommodating and went above and beyond to make us feel at home!


Best B&B on MDI

5 on October 23, 2011

From the very first day, we felt at home. Mark & Jennifer are extremely gracious & friendly hosts -- we felt like we'd known them for years! The room was immaculate and beautiful -- the perfect couples' retreat. The breakfasts were not only delicious but beautifully presented, as if from a gourmet chef!
