    Historical Traveler Reviews Anne's White Columns Inn Bar Harbor

    Bar Harbor + White Columns Inn = Great Vacation

    from

    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

    from

    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

    from

    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

    from

    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

    from

    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!

    Connoisseur's Delight

    from

    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!

    from

    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!

    from

    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!

    from

    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

    from

    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!!

    ... and our ship. The harbour in which we are anchored is absolutely thick with buoys marking the lobster pots. Each fisherman has their own markings/colours on the buoy. The pots have two sections – the kitchen and the living room, so they tell us, and are baited with mackerel. The lobster fishery has increased significantly as the predator fish eg cod have been overfished and with the sustainability measures adopted for the ...

    ... size, it was a beautiful sight to see. Now it was back on the road for a few hours with Bar Harbor as our destination. The one hundred miles took almost three hours due to the slow pace of Route 1 along the coast. With one last food stop, we made it to the campground around 5:45. Tommy's buddies on the forum suggested the Bar Harbor campground as the place to stay. We were glad to get a site with full hook-ups, but we were disappointed not ...

    ... invites visitors to relax and enjoy the sun and the water. If you decide to adventure into the water, you need to know that it will definitely be refreshing—refreshingly cold. It is not for the person who is afraid of alittle cold water.

    After a fun and exciting day exploring all that Acadia National Park has to offer, I recommend going into the town of Bar Harbor. This town has so much to offer. You can visit one of its ...

    ... It wasn't, about an hr away someone said. So I walked back to where I started and got my self a nice chai tea. Then started my walk along the Oceanside path. This was a very beautiful walk, ocean and islands on one side and green grass and houses on the other. This walk was about a mile long, I sat on a rock and looking out to the water I drank my tea, perfect. So relaxing. Continuing my walk I turned off the ocean path down a road and ...

    We visited a beach where the tides come rolling in at different times of the day. The location were the tide was coming in was called Thunder Hole. Thunder Hole is one of the many stops along the coastline where people can get down and admire in wonder at the tide as it rolls in. When we were finished, we went back in town and hung out for a little while. We had lunch, got back in the car and drove to Southwest Harbor. Southwest Harbor is located on Mount Desert Island, which ...
