Historical Traveler Reviews Anne's White Columns Inn Bar Harbor
Bar Harbor + White Columns Inn = Great Vacation
We just spent 4 days with Bob and Anne and had a terrific time. They are extremely personable hosts with a wealth of knowledge about the area. Their suggestions helped to make a great vacation even better. The inn is well kept and no detail is overlooked. As other reviewers have stated, you are truly made to feel "at home". We'll look forward to our next visit.
Rest and Relaxation
Rest and Relaxation are two of the many things that you will find at the White Columns Inn. We are repeat customers and for the past 5 years have returned to this top rated B&B. It's right in the heart of downtown Bar Harbor with only a short walk to the restaurants and shops. Ann and Bob are wonderful hosts, and they have made the White Columns Inn feel like a "Second Home". They offer great advice as to where to eat, and they have a wealth of information about the local area and the activites to do. The rooms are beutifully decorated and comfortable, with spacious private baths. We highly recommend this B&B to anyone looking for a relaxing attmosphere with hosts that meet your every need!
Great (4) Days Weekend
My wife and I found a great place to vacation, and a lovely place to stay within drive distance from our home. Every aspect of our extended weekend was comfortable as well as memorable. Thank you Anne and Bob (our hosts).
Recommend Anne's White Columns
Spent a week at the White Column Inn. Everything was delightful, from the hosts to the guests. We met wonderful people and had great conversations with our hosts. Strongly recommend to anyone.
A very comfortable, convenient, friendly downtown Inn
We found this place while staying up on the hill outside downtown opposite the Colllege of The Atlantic. The White Columns is a short walk to all the nice restaurants..has a nightly wine and cheese party and a wonderful breakfast all included at a reasonable price. The owners and guests are friendly and interesting and offer great clues as what is around Acadia Park and Bar Harbor. It is a great place for adults to relax!
This B&B has to be in the top 5% of all the B&B's in America. Excellent breakfasts followed by wine and cheese every afternoon. It is extremely comfortable & relaxing. The owners (Anne and Bob) are very engaging, friendly and helpful. Anne's White Columns Inn has a unique past but you'll have to visit for the story.
Great Vacation Spot!
Anne's White Columns Inn is a the best place to stay in Bar Harbor. We are repeated guests and can't say enough about the impecible hospitality.
The rooms are always comfortable and clean after a days outting on the Maine coast. The staff are very informative of local goings on and are willing to go out of their way to make sure that your welcome.
Delightful, Comfortable, Terrific Location, CLean, Super Hosts!
I have had the pleasure of staying at WCI on several occasions and am planning to go back in June again.
It is a delightful stay. Each room is individually furnished with specially sought out furniture to fit the theme of the room. It's perfectly located in Bar Harbor with a short walk to the center of town.
The home town hospitality of our hosts Anne and Bob Bahr is just what one wants at the end of a long journey or a day of sight seeing.
The nightly wine and cheese on the deck is a perfect way to relax before heading out to dinner. The continental breakfasts with home baked goods make it convenient to get an ealry start to your day without having to make that extra stop for breakfast.
Bob and Anne take pride in being you hosts and you will look forward to the next stay with them!
Anne's White Columns Inn--- Heaven away from Home!
I have been visiting Bar Harbor for over 15 years on an almost yearly basis. I stayed at Anne's White Columns Inn the first year, and have NEVER gone anywhere else!!! Anne and Bob make you feel like part of their family, and provide the utmost in creature comfort for you! I have always looked forward to Anne's homemade breakfast muffins or breads, plus the wine and cheese at Happy Hour on the porch makes it easy to unwind at the end of a long day of sightseeing or shopping. They are locals with a wealth of information regarding the area, and have always provided excellent guidance regarding the restaurants, shopping and attractions. I can tell you most of the patrons return yearly, and you will only know why after you have been there!
Great place to stay
Anne and Bob are great hosts,. The rooms are clean and the Inn is close to downtown (just a short walk away). The hosts are very knowledgable about the area and can tell you all of the best places to eat!!

Today our port excursion is "Best of Acadia National Park and Cadillac Mountain" and is for 6 hours. Bar Harbor is nestled on the northeast tip of Maine's Mount Desert Island and we are anchored in Frenchman Bay, and have to be tendered to the pier. We drove through the small town of Bar Harbor (similar to Skagway), with its cafes, restaurants and specialty shops and once again, the wooden houses and hotels of the town had all been ...
Had a bit of a sleep in then went for breakfast. We had to clear USA customs first. Then we joined Lyn, Stan, Audrey and her dr husband for breakfast. lyn and I had a game of bridge with Bubbles and Judy...good time...we won! Lyn, Stan and I went wandering the town while Fred stayed home and rested. Bar Harbour is beautiful....nice ...
... next morning. It is the highest mountain in the region at over 1500ft above sea level. It was a tough hike and much different than our other hikes. The area is much rockier, with huge sheets of granite and a lot less shade on he trails. There was little forest and it was much drier and warmer than New Hampshire. It took us almost an hour and a half to reach the peak and it was well worth it. The views of the bays and the never ending Atlantic Ocean were breathtaking. We’ve ...
... which by this time if day is partly covered by the retractable roof, so It wasn't as cold as on the deck. I got my tea inside from the tea man and took it out by the pool to sit and read while I drank. I finished my first cup, then shortly after one of the servers comes by and offered to get me another. Yes please. ( the cups here are significantly smaller then I am used to. I'm tempted to get the hot water put in my travel mug.) After I ...
I went back to the visitor center parking, took the bus to Jordan Pond, did some shopping and then headed into Bar Harbor. By then it was a little sunny and not too cold for walking around. I had lunch at a place called Testa’s. The people at the table across from me all ordered the lobster and it was fun to watch them attempt to eat it. I had the fish sandwich and it was ok. After lunch, I decided to ...
