First time to visit Mount Desert and Bar Harbor. We wanted to come during the off-season to avoid the crowds, and it was a perfect time for us! We stayed in one of the King rooms, and it was very nicely appointed, very clean with parking right outside our window. The host was so helpful, sharing a map with us...

Hello, Thank you for the great review! We are glad to hear you enjoyed your room and found it clean and easily accessible to the parking lot. Coming to Bar Harbor in the off season can definitely be relaxing, but you are correct that not a lot of summer activities are available and many shops have still not opened. Our...

This was a quick stay as we arrived in the late afternoon and left at 7am the next morning for an early medical appointment. There are not many places open in Bar Harbor and this little hotel worked for us under the circumstances. The hotel is right in town and next to the Abbe Museum and the near village green....

We love this place. It is so convenient, clean and charming. We stayed in the Dorr Mountain suite and it was so comfortable for 2 couple's. Great beds and super clean place. The walkability cannot be beat. If you are entertaining a trip to Bar Harbor you cannot go wrong with this place. Step from town and the water..

Thank you for your review! We are happy to hear you enjoyed your stay here and found our hotel to be clean and comfortable. The Dorr Mountain Suite is definitely a great place for two couples to stay and enjoy a weekend away in each other's company. We hope you will return to our downtown hotel again soon!

Stayed in the Mt Dorr suite. Very nice beds. Televisions in every room. Convenient location. Friendly staff. Didn't have but one night there. Came in late and left early. They had bikes for guests which would have been a plus in summer.

While I stayed for a quick overnight, this place is wonderful and quaint. The front porch just calls to you and the staff is A+; actually the most friendly people I have met. Very helpful and guided me with options for hiking, driving in Acadia and eating. Really a wonderful place.

We stayed here in the winter. The owner was very attentive to making sure guests were warm and safe--sanded and shoveled after a wee ice coating. Our windshield was cleared of snow in the morning. First place I have ever stayed that had a special "makeup" washcloth, a brilliant idea. Room was very warm, clean. Recommendations for open dining options...

We had a room downstairs with King bed and full bath that was quiet and comfortable. The hotel is "vintage" with 18 rooms, and lots of charm. They have coffee and pastries in the morning...and a fabulous location. We could walk everywhere, and the staff was friendly and helpful.
