We absolutely loved our 3 nights at the Saltair. The house is gorgeous. We stayed in the Acadia Suite and found it very comfortable and well appointed. The views from the back are unobstructed and serene. Kristy and Matt are wonderful hosts. Kristy makes a fantastic breakfast and both are helpful, warm and approachable. The location is excellent as well...about two blocks of walking will get you to down town. If you are looking for a peaceful, comfortable place to stay with a view the Saltair is an excellent choice!

SaltAir innkeepers Kristi & Matt gave us a wonderful stay at this beautiful bed and breakfast. My husband and I are big breakfast meal lovers, and they made absolutely delicious French toast lightly stuffed with wild local Maine blueberries one day, and equally delicious fluffy and perfectly naturally sweet blueberry pancakes with crispy bacon and fruit smoothie the next day! The inn was warm with friendly service and super helpful information about local things to do, places to eat, beautiful hikes (the innkeepers are outdoor people just like us) and other tidbits with a table in the dining room just for maps, routes, hiking trail books, etc...Our room and private bathroom was squeaky clean and the views from the backyard/porch were amazing! The bed and breakfast sits on the seaside facing Bar Island and on low tide, you can walk from the backyard, down the steps to the shore and stroll down the sandbar to the island, explore around and hike to the summit! (You might even spot some deer). When we come back to hike more of Acadia National Park, we will definitely come back to SaltAir Inn and recommend to our family and friends as well!

My wife and I stayed at the Saltair Inn in the Master Suite for a 3-night Maine get-away. The accommodations were just what we were looking for. So comfortable and spacious with a gorgeous view of the water and a little private beach. The breakfasts were all delicious and the innkeepers so friendly and helpful. I am so happy we found this gem in Bar Harbor. We will definitely be back!

Stop scrolling — start booking. Incomparable views, excellent accommodations, impeccable customer service, & the best breakfast East of the Mississippi. We are return guests, but we feel more like family — JUST BOOK IT !! (photo of Harbor Suite ) ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
