The Inn at Bay Ledge

150 Sand Point Road , Bar Harbor, ME 04609 USA (Show map) Diamond Collection

Professionally Inspected & Certified Diamond Collection


Amidst towering pines, The Inn at Bay Ledge literally clings to the cliffs of Mt. Desert Island, which is locally referred to as "The Eden of New England". The decks which overlook the spectacular coastline are extremely inviting and guests may enjoy a swim in our pool, relax in a hammock, or take a walk on our private beach. The elegant bedrooms compliment the style of the inn which was built in the early 1900's, and possess an upscale country ambiance. Beautifully decorated with antiques, all rooms are unique with views of Frenchman's Bay and nearby mountains. King and Queen canopy and antique four poster beds are covered with designer linens, down quilts and feather beds. The cottages off extra privacy and more country style. Each morning a lavish full breakfast is served either on the deck overlooking Frenchman's Bay or before a roaring fire. Unique in character, size, location, and privacy, The Inn at Bay Ledge offers its guests the finest blend of luxury and Maine rustic living.

I tried to rate several of the categories above as outstanding, but the site would not allow me to click the last dot! From the moment that we walked into the Inn at Bay Ledge, we were transported to a world of peace and beauty. The property overlooks the Bay and from our terrace we were able to sit outside and watch the water which always makes me calm. The innkeepers, Jack and Jean, are terrific--attending to one's every need. The back porch is a beautiful place to eat the delicious breakfast and also to just sit and read. It was wonderful to be outside the hubbub of downtown Bar Harbor and it's traffic and congestion. One of the main entrances to Acadia Park is just down the road and makes it easy to visit the park. Our room was immaculate, large and beautifully decorated, with adequate closet space and a jacuzzi tub in the bathroom. What a pleasure to be here. When we return to Bay Ledge we will stay here again

Everything about our stay at The Inn at Bay Ledge was fabulous. The accommodations, the food, and the view were all fabulous. The owners and staff made us feel at home immediately upon our arrival. We could not of asked for a better place to have stayed in Bar Harbor. We will definitely be back!

My favorite Inn

We stayed here for the second time. It is like staying with your favorite relatives.. The location peaceful yet accessible to everywhere on Mt Desert Island We still went to a few places in Bar Harbor, Southwest Harbor and NortheayHarbor. We hiked Acadia about every day. The Inn has a delicious breakfast and comfortable furnishings. They have a large porch and yard for your enjoyment and a view of Frenchman’s Bay. Jack and Jeanne are very hospitable and you will be very pleased with your choice. We prefer to stay in the main house.

Perfect Maine Get-a-Way

We stayed 10 days at the Inn at Bay Ledge and had a relaxing, interesting, fun time. Jack and Jeanie were friendly hosts who made us feel welcome and comfortable. Our room well-appointed and super clean. Kudo's to the behind-the-scenes staff! We enjoyed breakfast on the porch, walks along the beach at low tide, dips in the pool, curling up in the hammock with a good book, and sitting on the lawn and looking at the stars at night. We explored Acadia Park and the town of Bar Harbor, both were only minutes away. Highly recommend.

Beautiful location with outstanding outdoor dining and views!

We loved staying at this B & B. The owner was charming, gave us tips on where to find the best lobster, and overall was a wonderful experience. Their porch overlooking Frenchman's Bay is absolutely gorgeous! We ate our breakfast there each morning.

A Wonderful Place to Stay

Gracious and attentive hosts, beautiful and delicious breakfasts and afternoon goodies, well appointed and serviced rooms. Our group of 16 spent six nights at The Inn at Bay Ledge and everyone loved it! We gathered around the breakfast tables or on the spacious porch but still had the privacy of our own rooms. My husband and I loved the Bear Cottage! And we all loved exploring the beach below the Inn. I’d give it 10 stars if the survey went that high! Thank you Jack, Jeanne & their awesome staff!

Excellent Location, Great Folks!

About the innkeepers

Both having left the corporate world for the tranquil life of Maine; this is our second Inn on the island of Mt. Desert. Our first was in downtown Bar Harbor, but there was one thing missing...the Ocean. Thus our Inn sits atop an eighty foot cliff with a private beach. A great place for our sailboat. We also enjoy golf, hiking, biking, and skiing. What better place to enjoy it than Acadia National Park...our own back yard!
