Shore Path Cottage on the Ocean

24 Atlantic Aenue , Bar Harbor, 04609 USA (Show map)


Oceanfront with beautiful views, the Shore Path Cottage is the only B&B on Bar Harbor's spectacular Shore Path. With our in-town location on a quiet street, we are easy walking distance of Bar Harbor's activities, shopping and restaurants. We serve a delicious breakfast inside or out on our porch with a view of the sea. A short distance from Acadia National Park, the Shore Path Cottage is a classic example of Maine Victorian architecture.

A lovely inn!

Shore Path Cottage is our home away from home when we visit Acadia each year. The rooms are beautifully appointed. The meals are delicious. And the afternoon baked goods are a welcome treat after hiking and biking in the park. Dinner in town is just a short walk away. To us, Shore Path Cottage feels like family!! Maria and Peter M.

Roberta and Lisabeth are outstsnding hosts, they know Bar Harbor &MDI backwards and forwards. The Shorepath Cottage is ideally located next to Frenchman Bay, a short walk to "downtown.". Their organic, kosher, freshly made breakfasts are wonderful! This is a great place to relax, meet people from all over the USA and the world, and then to explore Acadia.

What warm hospitality!

Such a beautiful stay in your clean gorgeous rooms. The breakfasts surpassed what you would get in a restaurant. Lisabeth and her Mother take such good care of their guests suggesting sites and restaurants to visit. I highly recommend Shore Path Cottage. Betty Strock

A Hidden Treasure

I loved my stay in 2010 at Shorepath Cottage. I was treated like royalty and enjoyed every moment of my time there. This is in walking distance of everything to see and do in Bar Harbor itself and just minutes away from Acadia National Park. I've stayed in many B&Bs across the nation and this one by far was one of my all time favorites! Can't wait to return!
