Stellar in Every Way!!!

We recently took our first trip to Bar Harbor and stayed at The Holbrook House. The location was a quick walk into town and very close to Acadia. The Inn was meticulously maintained and had a very warm and cozy atmosphere. Michelle and Eric were so accomodating in every way. Michelle's breakfast and afternoon goodies were incredible. Eric and Michelle gave us recommendations for outdoor activities and dining that were spot on. They are just wonderful people and because of them our trip to Bar Harbor was one of our favorite vacations. Mark and Cindy

Bar Harbor's best B&B

5 on September 27, 2015

We have been staying with Michelle and Eric for the last 5 years. After visiting many B&B establishments, we feel Holbrook is the best. Fabulous breakfasts, afternoon cookies, cakes, and rum balls are all great. The inn feels upscale but still comfy and homey. The owners are always available but never overbearing. If you are looking for a comfortable place with delicious food, look no further. Holbrook House is the one.

Amazing stay! Love this bed and breakfast.

We stayed here two nights. Had an amazing time. We stayed in the Compass Rose room. It was beautifully decorated, bathroom/shower was spectacular and the private patio was a nice touch. Eric was very helpful and always available. Michele is masterful in the kitchen. Her blueberry frenchtoast was amazing!!

Perfect Honeymoon and Getaway

What a perfect place to stay. Minutes from shops and dinner spots, and great recommendations on both. The room was lovely and the private porch was perfect for star gazing. We will be back!

Exceeded Expectations

5 on October 13, 2014

It was our first time at a B&B and Holbrook House exceeded expectations. The rooms were comfortable and felt private (and were freshened daily). The atmosphere was cozy and the breakfasts (and "snacks") were delicious. The innkeepers were beyond helpful and personable... We would recommend Holbrook House to anyone!

An opinion from across the pond.....

Eric and Michelle the new innkeepers are very customer focused. The breakfast were always very good and afternoon snacks appreciated. Room #2 was recently remodeled and looks great. They have also remodeled several public rooms and other rooms are to come. Great location in Bar Harbor.
