Not really prim and proper stuffy. If you're in Bar Harbor Maine, don't dare miss staying at this beautiful B&B. The rooms are comfortable, quiet, and ours had its own sitting area. The 4 o'clock tea will make you think you're in England. This place is gorgeous, immaculate, but filled with old world charm without being tacky. The breakfast is...

From the moment you walk in to the moment you leave, you will have everything your heart desires and things you couldn't even imagine wanting at your finger tips at this amazing inn. The women who welcome you are amazing hosts and even better bakers (they make the scrumptious cookies and desserts offered during daily tea). The amenities are better...

This inn is beautiful. From the entry to the dining room, to our guest room. All impeccably done and clean. The location is handy for walking around and the town is safe and most walking is flat surfaced. The staff is friendly and knowledgeable about the area. Don't miss this lovely inn.

We spent a wonderful three nights at Primrose Inn conveniently located within walking distance to the best restaurants and downtown. Complimentary parking is provided for guests.
