Hearthside Heaven

5 on October 10, 2017

This is a wonderful Inn with outstanding hosts. Beautiful accommodations. Fabulous breakfasts -- made your way. Homemade cookies every afternoon. Located on a quiet one-way street with off street parking and walking distance to all in 'downtown' Bar Harbor. Also hosts were great sources of information. We had a great experience. Highly highly recommended. Thank you again Catherine & Brian.

Lovely Stay in Bar Harbor

Gracious hosts. Comfortable room. Great linens. Delicious and bountiful breakfasts. Only one bedroom on the main floor, so ask for it if you have mobility issues or can carry your luggage upstairs. Limited parking, but street parking was not hard to find. Easy walk to Harbor and/restaurants/shopping. Short drive to Acadia Natl. Park. Would highly recommend.

Nice little B & B

4.4 on October 12, 2016

Enjoyed two nights at the Hearthside B & B. Stayed in the only downstairs bedroom, decorated in Churchill memorabilia. Homey feel with great bed and linens. Catherine and Brian are excellent hosts, preparing wonderful, plentiful breakfasts and afternoon cookies. Inn is located on a quiet residential street, within easy walking distance of downtown and the harbor. Recommend packing lightly if you choose an upstairs room, as you will carry your own bags, but this is a delightful place to stay.

Home away from home!

Top notch experience

5 on May 23, 2016

The Hearthside B & b exceeding all of our expectations. We visited with another couple and the experience was outstanding. The B & B is beautiful and is pristine in every way. The main floor is beautifully appointed and was warm and welcoming from morning until night. The rooms are spacious and very comfortable and the hosts are friendly, helpful and very accommodating. We would return here in a heartbeat and recommend it highly. The B & B is in close walking distance to restaurants, shops and activities and the hosts are extremely helpful with menus, maps and brochures to plan every activity.

Perfect B&B

We spent four days at this B&B in May 2016. Other than the weather, it was PERFECT. The rooms are spacious and comfortable. The hosts are REAL hosts. The breakfast were superlative. The best eggs benedict I have ever had anywhere in the world. The location is such that you can walk to everything Bar Harbor.
