We stayed off-season. Staff was wonderful and friendly. Our room was spacious and well cleaned. Everything was very cozy and really felt like home. Inn was within walking distance of most of downtown Bar Harbor. Absolutely loved the experience and would stay here again!

I never made to the Inn. Made a reservation on Booking.com. This website states that the Inn is pet friendly, after contacting the Inn I found out that it is dog friendly only. That's not pet friendly. My cat travels with me and I have run into this problem before. Somebody needs to get the facts straight.

We were in the area for a funeral and it was a very cold weekend. The room was comfortable, the bathroom spacious, and the hosts warm and friendly. We were near the front door but in off-season there's almost no traffic on the street.

First off I need to say that Booking.com is probably the major problem with what was supposed to be a nice long 21st anniversary weekend for us... BUT with that said, I am very disappointed with the whole processes & hidden fees associated with staying here. We wanted to bring our dogs with us, so I was required to book...

First and foremost I want to apologize to you. I wish I had had the opportunity to speak with you personally and make your 21st anniversary weekend the celebration you had anticipated.

A comfortable Inn, an easy walk to downtown Bar Harbor (it's really just outside the busy part of town). We were originally put in a room three stories up, and told it was two Queen beds. They were clearly double beds and we were moved to a room just off the lobby. Very comfortable. Our Guide Dog and teen were...

We (my girlfriend and I) stayed there last Christmas for four nights to celebrate her birthday (which is also on Christmas day) and loved everything about the stay! We would go back in a heartbeat and most likely will again around the same time this year if available. The owners were so genuinely accommodating we felt like family. I highly...

We had a nice weekend, in November. The Quimby House was clean and comfy. We checked in late, staying two nights. Carlinda helped us, both mornings and evenings. There was a note on the desk letting folks know that "The Blue Door" was open that evening. It was a short walk. What a great find that was!! We returned there...

We stayed in the annex with our dogs, lovely suite with kitchenette and quite comfortable, Very quiet and a great staff, We were late arriving and they called to check on us! Close to Bar Harbor shopping but well out of the cruise ship crowds.

We booked late but were happy with the booking details and walking distance to town centre. The room was spacious and the bed comfortable but the road noise was awful. If you book this hotel I suggest you ask to avoid Room 101 which is at the front of the hotel on the ground floor right next to the road....

We never stayed in "inn's" before so really didn't know what to expect. Our room was big, clean and the bed was comfortable, but the furniture is outdated. The one thing that bothered us was the smell in the lobby the day we checked in. It smelled like fried fish. The next few days the smell was whatever was cooked...
