A Week to Remember

4.8 on July 11, 2016

In reading reviews of this Inn, I am searching for words to describe my experience. This Inn and location are much more then claimed. My husband and I found it to be a refuge, a retreat from today's news media, worries, and cares. It has all the charm of a New England B & B, plus a delicious breakfast that is again more then just good food, but beautifully presented each morning. The staff are gracious people, happy to know you. Ben, (the owner) takes time to talk to new guests and to acquaint everyone to make sure you know all the details of this beautiful area, where to go, where to eat, and what there is to do. So, yes, I second all the reviews declaring just how "special" this place is-go and find out for yourself!!!! Patricia M.

This was the best B&B we stayed at. It was fabulous! Everything it claimed to be and more! The private beach was quiet and peaceful and the trails were wonderful - complete with descriptions of habitats, indigenous creatures and their life cycles. It was a great learning experience and fun besides.

Not as expected--Mosquitoes

2.4 on September 20, 2014

Our stay was during the first week of September. The mosquitoes were so bad we could not leave our building. We were swarmed the minute we exited our car and we had to walk through the mosquitoes to get to the dining room. A window screen in our room did not fit well and the mosquitoes kept coming into our room until we found the opening and blocked it with a towel. We did not stay after the first night. When we checked out the following morning the woman on staff tried to get me to sign a paper agreeing to pay for the rest of our scheduled stay!

Elegance, Beach, Hiking, Moose. What more could you want in Maine!?

We will definitely be back. Private beach was unbelievable. The hiking trails in back woods are so picturesque. They lead to a salt marsh where it was evident that there are moose! Sadly, didn't see one though. Maybe next time. 3 course breakfast in the morning was wonderful. Margaret, the receptionist/greeter was such a happy lady I could have talked to her for hours.

Best B&B!

This place really blew me away! We had a comfortable 3rd-floor room in the Captain's House. Service was unbelievable, the Inn was immaculate, and the 3-course gourmet breakfast can't possibly be beat. The location was incredible, too - remote enough to be peaceful and across the street from the beach. I will definitely go back!

Fantastic Acadia B&B

4.2 on October 21, 2011

We really began our New England vacation when we finally arrived at the Oceanside B&B. We had thought we were staying near Bar Harbor, but were instead forty minutes away! This was my fault for not really looking at a map, but in the end we were happy to be away from the touristy area of Bar Harbor. Prospect Harbor is quiet and beautiful, although there are not too many restaurants open during the "off season". We had wonderful wonderful vegetarian breakfasts which seemed to bother a few of the other visitors, but not us. The breakfasts were truly gourmet ! A very enjoyable experience!

This B&B was great. Everything was wonderful, from the spectacular view, to the homey atmosphere in the houses, to the nice clean rooms, to the wonderful friendly staff. The breakfasts that they serve each morning was to die for and I greatly missed them when I left. I was pleasantly surprised with the location to Bar Harbor and would not have known about the fishing village in Corea and possibly Schoodic Peninsula. They were very helpful in recommending the whale watching cruise with Captn Robertson which was the hi-light of our stay even though we couldn't go because of a storm that blewn in. We toured the light houses,saw seals that we could almost touch and pulled lobster traps! I would definitly come again and stay here!

We enjoyed it. We will be back.

Pre-check in was flawless by which I mean prompt and informative email explaining availabilities, room info, cancellation policy (reasonable) and other details. Made us feel welcome even before we arrived! When we got there we were met by owner who provided useful info about what to see and do in the area. Laminated printed guide sheets that he prepared were excellent. Room was charming. Lovely and intimate breakfast room and living room. Friendly staff, beautiful grounds. Could not have asked for a better situation!
