We stayed a few nights in late September 2014. It is an historic inn, so no TV's in the room (lovely), but lots of space, a very relaxing experience. I would call the decor "shabby chic"! Staff work hard to please and the view is priceless!

A little context. My wife and I used to visit here in the 70's, 80's, and early 90's. I wanted to make one last visit to NE Harbor and the Asticou, and timed it coinciding with our 54th anniversary. I made reservations in March for the main inn, water view, Sept. 30th and Oct. 1st. I had an email and... More

This is what I imagine an American country hotel to be, cosy, comfortable but not too sophisticated. everything is comfortable, the breakfast generous though 2 minutes less cooking for the bacon would be good, the team who work here are friendly and welcoming and the view from our bedroom at least was gorgeous. No doubt it lacks that final urban... More

We love hiking in Acadia Nat. Park in the fall and have done so for many years but have never stayed here before. We are staying in Blue Spruce, one of the out buildings. The room is clean, comfy and has a lovely view. Very old fashioned bathroom but I'll take a big ole claw foot tub for an after-hike... More

My husband and I stayed here twice. Both experiences were exceptional but our last visit was even more memorable. They have a new chef and the food was,really delicious. Lobster was prepared perfectly, my husband had lamb and this, too, was amazing. I still think about the breakfast I had...ricotta pancakes with a blueberry compote. Delicious! The rooms are small...

My wife and I happened on this enormous old inn while driving around Mt. Desert Island trying to escape the tourist horrors of Bar Harbour. We took a suite with bedroom, sitting room, small terrace, and bath. All were small rooms while the bath was too small to 'swing a cat'. Granted that his is a hundred year-old place, the... More

We spent only two nights in July and wish it were for many more. At the top of the circular drive you're greeted with a broad, apron-shingled porch festooned with hanging baskets of petunias and ferns. The quiet, charming lobby immediately takes you to the roaring 20.'s. We had a room at the top of the stairs, king bed, facing... More

The Asticou Inn has beautiful grounds and the common areas of the main inn building seemed nice. However, we were given Room 4 in the Cranberry Lodge -- a house across the street that has been converted into a small satellite inn. The rooms we were given were shabby. There really is no other way to describe them. I'll upload... More
