Extraordinary Hospitality

5 on May 07, 2014

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

Wonderful B&B, Excellent service&value

My daughter and I stayed in several B&Bs on our recent trip to Maine and New Hampshire, and the Coach Stop was by far the best in all regards. The e-mail communications prior to the visit were warm and welcoming as well as informative; the service upon arrival and during the stay was excellent, the room was beautiful and the breakfasts--I could eat the blueberry fritters by the bucket! Unbelievably the Coach Stop was the least expensive Inn we stayed at during our visit and it was far superior to the others. I highly recommend this Inn to anyone traveling to Maine.

Adorable B&B

The Coach Stop Inn is an adorable B&B. It is just outside of downtown, so it is nice and quiet. We were welcomed by Natalie and Mary-Claire as we entered and right away they introduced us to another couple there enjoying the parlour. After giving us a tour Natalie showed us to the Tavern Suite and I was surprised at how big it was. They had soft music playing on the cd/alarm clock which was very welcoming. It had a big sitting area where my husband and I played scrabble every night and had a fire one of the nights. They provide a stamped postcard which I used to write to family back home and every day there was a new one! Natalie recommended a couple of restaurants and gave us a map of Mount Desert Island and highlighted some not-to-miss spots. We enjoyed everything that she recommended. Breakfasts were plentiful and delicious. The first course of every breakfast are blueberry fritters and they are to die for. Natalie thought we might get sick of them after four breakfasts, but we sure didn't! The second course was a fruit course, yummy! The third course was the main course and different each morning. They have a 24 hour bar set up with hot and cold drinks and an afternoon snack that I looked forward to because it was different each day. Natalie and Mary-Claire were very friendly and pleasant and made us feel right at home. We would definitely stay there again.
