Historical Traveler Reviews Cleftstone Manor Bar Harbor
Cleftstone Manor - Just Right
Our stay at Cleftstone Manor helped make our visit to Bar Harbor a hit. The owner Anne and her nighttime manager Grace were very friendly and informative. They answered all our questions, provided an audio tour of Acadia and a book detailing hiking trails. The B&B itself was lovely. Guest rooms were charming. They ranged in size and price so you could choose which you wanted. The living room and porch room were attractive and we enjoyed bringing in wine and cheese for a relaxing evening's meal. My husband was especially pleased that they had wireless internet available for laptop users. The breakfasts were delicious. I would recommend this B& B highly.
A great place to stay
Cleftstone Manor was a nice place to stay. The Manor had great atmosphere,very friendly staff, and delicious breakfasts and snacks. The location is very convenient to the center of Bar Harbor and Acadia National Park.
My husband and I enjoyed our stay. We would definitely recommend Cleftstone Manor.
Nothing is better than Cleftstone!
From the moment we entered the Cleftstone Manor, you felt right at home! The innkeepers can recount the history of the Cleftstone with such vivid detail, which makes you appreciate the atmosphere of this historical B&B even more. Breakfast was unbelieveable-- I've never had such a wonderful meal to start off the day! Anne and Bob were extremely friendly and helpful with many suggestions in our first trip to Bar Harbor. As far as Bed and Breakfasts go, this one would be the top of my list! I will definitely return to the Cleftstone in the future.
A wonderful experience
The Cleftstone Manor is a wonderful B&B. I would highly recommend it to any of my friends and the best part about it are the truly amazing breakfasts.
We were apprehensive about staying in a BnB for our honeymoon, and locating a spot on the web even made us more so. We could not have been any more pleasantly suprised by our stay at the Cleftstone Manor. Everyone was so accomodating and helpful. Ann & Bob are to be commended on the way they treat their guests as friends. The rooms were lovely and inviting and the breakfasts are out of this world! The Cleftstone has set an incredibly high standard for all BnBs that we may visit. We look forward to our next visit to the Cleftstone.
Relaxing at the Cleftstone
We have just returned from a four night stay at the Cleftstone. Our stay was everything we had hoped for from a B & B. Our room was comfortable and attractively decorated with a lovely bath, the staff was friendly and helpful, and we felt right at home. The inn was conveniently located just slightly away from the hustle and bustle of town as well as being right down the road from the entrance to Acadia Nat'l Park. Breakfast was served quickly, but never rushed, with a nice variety of foods that were served with pride. Even a rainy day proved special on the "sun porch" as we read and enjoyed afternoon tea and cookies!
Just about perfect
My wife and I have stayed at a number of New England B&Bs, and the Cleftstone Manor tops our list. The large, intriguing house is beautiful, immaculate and well-appointed, including the guest rooms (we checked out most of them). Ours had high beamed ceilings, antique furniture and a working fireplace, along with the most comfortable bed I can remember. The bath was spacious and equipped with cozy bathrobes. Ann prepared a full, delicious breakfast every morning, and the menu did not repeat in the course of a week. Ann and her staff were unfailingly friendly and helpful, from information on attractions and restaurants to nursing my wife through a brief illness. We would definitely return.
This was my first experience at a B&B and it was a very pleasant one. The room was comfortable, quiet and quaint. The breakfasts were superb. The staff was friendly and very helpful with advice on great places to eat. This was my husbands third visit to Bar Harbor and it was his best experience. We would definitely return to the Cleftstone.
Cleftstone Manor is located just north of Bar Harbour on Hwy 3. It is conviently located to downtown Bar Harbour (you can walk to downtown). Ann and Bob, the owners, along with the rest of the staff are so warm and gracious. We were met with their warmth the moment we walked in the door. After a brief tour and history of Cleftstone Manor, my husband and I relaxed in the gorgeous Cleftstone Room to begin our 3 night stay.
Ann was very helpful and was a great source of information on the area, such as great places to eat, help with lunch suggestions. Breakfast each morning was delightful with the fast service, but not rushed. Each request was handled quickly. The food was great. Each afternoon we were treated to tea and cookies. This was our first experience in a B&B and look forward to visiting them again!
In Praise of the Cleftstone Manor
In search of a relaxing getaway, my husband and I traveled to Bar Harbor, Maine in May, just before the tourist season opened. Located just outside Bar Harbor overlooking Frenchman's Bay, as well as a short distance from the entrance to Acadia National Park, the Cleftstone Manor complimented the calm of the location. Innkeepers Anne and Bob Bahr welcomed us into their home, at least that was the feeling we received from them both. The nineteenth century decor was charming and a refreshing escape from our everyday lives. Anne, herself, prepares wonderful breakfasts. We are veteran B and B-ers. The Clefstone manor is among the best. We will definitely return!

What a day!! we did a 2.2 mile hike up to the highest peak in Acadia National Park, Cadillac Mountiain. It seemed longer than the 2.2 and every time you thought you were at the top you had to keep going. The last 1/2 mile was pretty steep but doable. We eat our peanut butter and jelly sandwiches at the top and had to decide which way to get down to our truck.

It is a really good tour and at $29 a head excellent value. We drive through town past some of. The older houses from when Bar Harbor was the summer spot for rich Americans like the Rockfellers. Then we head into the park and to the top of the granite mountain for some stupendous views of the bay. Next stop is a blow hole near the shore and then to an area planted with lots of Acadian flowers and plants and with it's own beaver ...
We were woken up by the alarm at 6.15am a bit off for a holiday but we did have plane to catch. We taxied down to the local airport and after a very short ferry ride , about , 300 meters we were in the airport on one of Toronto's nearby islands . The send off from Canada went smoothly and after a pleasant sojourn in the Porter departure lounge we were on our way to the USA again.

... then back to the motel, shuttle into Bar Harbor for some shopping and then back to grab dinner at the lobster pound across the street. I have to ask someone why all these places are called lobster pounds. Anyway, I had a cup of lobster bisque and a piece of blueberry pie. The bisque was delicious! There were quite a few chunks of lobster meat and it was a cheap $5 which is better than paying $25+ for a lobster dinner. I think I have had enough lobster ...
