Terri and Jim saw me off in style by an overnight boat trip on their Catamaran Fiesta. We headed off , on a glorious summer afternoon, to Waiheke Island. This is a fairly large Island outside of Auckland where small coves, vineyards, towns and private estates abound. Couldn't leave ...

If you’re daring enough, you can try one of their most famous flavors, lobster tracks. It’s actually ice cream with real Maine lobster chunks mixed in. I tried it, and all I have to say is you have to be pretty out there to like it; it was a great experience though.

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.
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!
