Great B&B, Right Outside Acadia

5 on July 01, 2018

My husband and I spent a long weekend at the Coach Stop Inn and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Wonderful breakfasts, phenomenal attention to the little things and great hosts. They’re very accommodating around food allergies and portions - Anna kindly asked my husband if he wanted seconds every morning. We looked forward to her baked treats in the afternoon as well. Very thoughtful hosts - looking forward to being bacn soon!

Lovely B&B

We stayed at Jim and Anna's B&B during off-season while visiting Acadia National Park. It was the perfect accommodation for us, and everything was phenomenal, from the large claw-foot bathtub to the delicious breakfast of pancakes and sausages, from the many thoughtful touches/decorations to the fantastic location minutes from downtown and the park. We definitely hope to return and highly recommend it to other travelers!

Extraordinary Hospitality

What an extraordinary bed and breakfast! Deborah helps you to feel right at home as soon as you arrive. Every morning you are greeted with a homemade deletable meal, and every afternoon/evening some of Deborah's famous sweet treats are available in the kitchen for all of the guests. Our stay was long enough that we had the opportunity to stay in two of the available rooms: the Tavern Suite and the Abbe Suite. Both rooms were beyond our expectations. Thank you Deborah for providing such a wonderful home-away-from-home! We cannot wait to come back!

A treasure

Deborah was such a great hostess. We could not find anything we did not like. So helpful. The rooms were clean and comfortable. You felt like you step like you step back in time.

Can't wait to go back...

Such a beautiful home! Deborah is a gem.... great hospitality, great food, great recommendations for restaurants and sight-seeing! My husband and I cannot wait to visit again!

One of the most beautiful B&Bs we've ever stayed at, and the best food we've ever tasted!

This place was so amazing, you felt like you were spending a lot more for the room, and yet, you felt like you were at home. Everyone spoke to each other as if we were old friends. We stayed in the Tavern Suite, and couldn't have asked for more! We had a separate sitting room with a fireplace, a private bathroom, and the bedroom was absolutely gorgeous! The food was just as incredible - I only wish Deborah also served Lunch and Dinner, too!!! We hope to stay here again, the next time we go to Acadia National Park (2 nights wasn't long enough!)

Great stop!

We stayed here for only 1 night...unfortunately. It was a great place! The owner was very nice and makes wonderful breakfasts. The rooms have been recently updated. Leon, the inn poodle, is super sweet! Deborah, the innkeeper, told us about a short walk to a beach to watch the sunset. It was quite amazing. The inn is located not too far from Acadia National Park but a bit of a drive into town which we enjoyed not being in the heart of town. We definitely plan to stay here again when in Bar Harbor!

Great B&B

We were only here for a couple of nights, but the place is wonderful! Room was super clean, every day they re-stocked the mini fridge with two waters, and breakfast was wonderful. Every morning there was a 3 course breakfast with a pastry, fruit dish, and breakfast entre like pancakes or fritada. The dining room was also open at all times with soda, waters, and a baked good in the afternoon. It is far enough away from Bar Harbor to avoid all the people but close enough that it is not inconvenient to head into town for dinner or shopping. I would 100% recommend to anyone visiting.

Wonderful place to stay near Bar Harbor

My sister and I really enjoyed our stay at the Coach Stop Inn. The room was huge and very comfortable. It had a little porch off the front so that you could sit and watch the hummingbirds. It was quiet and beautiful - truly a wonderful retreat. Deborah was extremely kind and welcoming and cooked a delicious breakfast each morning. We will definitely stay there again when we return to Bar Harbor.

wonderful time
