A charming and inviting retreat

4.8 on August 27, 2018

The Aysgarth Station Inn is a charming old house that has been kept in vey fine shape. It is centrally located, in a quiet street, just two short blocks from the town’s central Village Green and Main Street where all the action, i.e., stores, restaurants, bars, ice cream parlors, etc. There is an air of England in its décor. In fact, every room is named after an English Estate. Our room, the Chatswhorth, was spacious, elegantly appointed, and clean, with its own small balcony. The large bathroom included a large Jacuzzi bathtub. Melody, our hostess, was warm and gracious, answering all our questions and offering advice about the best restaurants in town, the Acadia park shuttle system and even which hikes would be best for us. In addition, she offered a delicious gourmet breakfast, which always included three dishes (fruit, a sweet pastry, and a hot dish), all freshly made. We stayed four nights and the breakfast menu was always different. In the afternoons, you’ll be treated to a home-baked good such as lemon sugar cookies or banana chocolate cake. Melody really makes you feel at home. Our stay was delightful. Michael and Angel

Great Experience!

Stayed one night at Aysgarth Station.. Was provided with many amenities (including some from Maine!) and great service! Stayed in the Treefalls room, which was super clean and modern. Staff was very friendly and provided information on the surrounding area and was more than happy to help with anything that was needed. Very great experience!

Amazing Experience!!!!

Our 1st get away without our kids in 6.5 yrs! We chose Aysgarth Station B&B in Bar Harbor and couldn't be more grateful that we did. Jane and Steve were amazing hosts. My husband and I felt very comfortable in their beautiful home. The meals cooked by Jane were 5 star all the time. We stayed two nights so we enjoyed two wonderful 3 course gourmet breakfasts. Plus I take my coffee a certain way and the second morning Jane had my coffee started without me having to ask. The location was unbeatable as we were right around the corner from downtown Bar Harbor. Parking was no issue. Our room was comfy and just what we needed for our get away. Plus Jane and Steve gave wonderful restaurant tips for where we should go for dinner. They also gave great advice about what to do and go see around Bar Harbor and Acadia National Park. Aysgarth Station was perfect for our weekend get away. Thank you very much Jane and Steve. The Oomkes'

A Great Place to Stay

4.6 on September 20, 2015

Our stay at Aysgarth Station was wonderful. Being on a tight budget we rented the smallest room (the Whitby), but it was clean, comfortable and charming. The hosts are friendly and very accommodating, and the breakfast is fantastic. It is located on a quiet street with only other B&Bs and private homes, but only two blocks from downtown Bar Harbor. A great place to stay!

Great Stay

We had another Bed and Breakfast recommend Aysgarth Station. We stayed 2 nights and loved it. The owners were very helpful on what to see on the island. The room was cleaned and we enjoyed the breakfast. If staying at Bar Harbor, a Bed and Breakfast is the way to go. Martha Greenwell

What a wonderful inn

5 on February 14, 2015

We are staying at Aysgarth Station this weekend and are truly impressed. Our room is charming, spacious and amazingly clean. The common areas are comfortable and inviting, with numerous touches of homeyness from the homemade breakfast, afternoon fresh baked brownies to the gas log fireplace. The innkeepers are witty and entertaining as well as being beyond accommodating. I highly recommend Aysgarth Station to anyone looking to stay within walking distance of the best that Bar Harbor has to offer.

Perfect Visit

We made a last minute reservation at the Aysgarth and couldn't have been more pleased. The room was clean and well kept and we loved the little gifts and information the innkeepers had left for us. The innkeepers were extremely friendly and took the time to offer personalized advice for which hikes to go on in the park. They were very accommodating to our vegetarian diet and we loved being able to sample local teas and blueberries! They set a high bar that was hard to match for our 2nd night when they had no availability. I highly recommend the Aysgarth Station B&B!

Warm & Inviting

My husband and other relatives stayed here in Oct.,2013. What a wonderful experience we had. The rooms were clean, the food great and Steve and Jane plus their cats were so welcoming. We all hope to return someday.

Wonderful B&B, Great Location

My husband and I had never been to Bar Harbor before. We stayed at the Aysgarth Inn for 2 nights in July, 2012. The Inn is located on a quiet street within walking distance to all the restaurants, bars and shops in downtown Bar Harbor. The breakfast is exceptional and our room was adorable, clean and quite comfortable. The owners are very friendly and knowledgeable about Bar Harbor and hiking. They even recommended a great spot on to see the sunset on the Mountain. The homemade cookies on the dinning room table in the afternoon were perfect after a long day of hiking! We plan to return.
