My husband and I wanted to stay right in the heart of Bar Harbor but we weren't looking to spend a lot on our trip to Maine last September, and Anne's White Columns fit the bill. The property is beautiful and the location is fantastic, easy to get to and within walking distance of all the restaurants and shops in...

Walking distance to many good eateries. Early evening social hour great way to get acquainted with other travelers and pick up hints and tips about places to see. Very good breakfasts, even for us vegetarians.

Having never been to Maine, we booked 4 nights at the Inn. Main floor rooms are on the small side. I wouldn't recommend Birch Point room to anyone staying more then one night. Very tight for 2 people with 2 suitcases. And the bathroom vanity is so small, there is no room to unpack toiletries. Innkeeper Bob is available at...

A homecoming each time we visit. We've stayed here a half dozen or so times since our first visit to Bar Harbor in '10. The rooms are charming, breakfasts are lovely and the location is great. Wine and cheese on the porch on a summer afternoon is a sweet way to unwind after a day spent running and hiking. Bob...

I recently spent 4 days in Bar Harbor at the White Columns inn. I had high expectations when we arrived. The building is beautiful with well tended gardens. The rooms were very disappointing overall. The room was very small and looked like my grandmother's house. The wallpaper was worn, as was the bedding and the decor was tacky, especially the...

We stayed here for 2 nights during the fall season. We aren't really bnb people but I felt quiet comfortable here. It felt more like a small hotel. It is a fantasic location just a few blocks from town. Breakfast is included every morning which is nice. The food itself is pleasent but there is no choice, it's served to...

We spent a lovely evening at the Inn. The room was comfortable. The owner and other staff are very friendly and the breakfast was great. The gardens are beautiful and nice to relax. The location is close to town and an easy walk for eating or shopping. Highly recommend.

We were lucky to find this quaint inn at the last minute for a one night stay and it turned out to be a great choice! It was centrally located, only a couple of min away from the Main Street. The owner and hostess were very friendly and made sure we felt at home during our short stay. The rooms...

Good location, beautiful property! The proprietor, Bob, made us feel welcoming, knowledgable and friendly. The rooms were very nicely decorated. The breakfasts were delicious and presented nicely. We will return.
