Coach Stop Inn Bed and Breakfast
Travel Blogs from Bar Harbor
After a good night's rest and a hearty breakfast of pancakes and sausages, we headed to Bahaba (Bar Harbor). This is a very touristy, crowded town, especially since it was close to the 4th of July. Deborah had never had a lobster roll, well we went to this place called Cafe This Way and each had a lobster roll, at US$20 a shot, at these prices, we should have went the "other way". Can you say tourist trap!! We however, did have the best meal of our entire trip at an Italian restaurant ...
... in the rolling hills.
We finally made it to the ocean! Our campsite is located within Seawall Campground in Acadia National Park, on Mt. Desert Island. This island is made up mostly of beautiful red granite which is different from all of the other geological surroundings and this of course excited Blake. Our first night was pretty chill after we set up camp. I fried up some falafels for Blake and I and we hung out around the fire. Our campsite is set further back into ...
... s Chocolate Emporium. This place has a huge selection of chocolates, ice cream and other sweets. I chose my favorite, mint oreo. It was really good. 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.
... dinner and eat at the buffet. Had some chicken, asparagus, chard and a zucchini & eggplant mix. Followed by fresh fruit with a sambuca dressing. This was very yummy I would have liked more. But decided no. I retired to my room to watch a movie as the one showing in the movie theater didn't interest me and the show in the other theater required formal dress and was something with Broadway hits. I decided to rent the matrix and watch that in my ...
... in the right hand lane, those of us wishing to further test the limits of President Eisenhower's highway system in the left lane. Highway driving the way it is supposed to be. No one in MY way.
We arrived in Bar Harbor a little before 5 and went to the hotel where the clerk greeted us. She was as nice as I am sarcastic and a wealth of information. For instance; her son is a cop in one of the little towns around here, he is ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Coach Stop Inn Bed and Breakfast Bar Harbor
We just spent a week-end with another couple at this charming Inn. From the moment we walked in the door of this Inn, built in 1804, warmth and hospitality surrounded us. Jeff and Natalie,the Inn Keepers,greeted us and made us feel like this was our home away from home.
It was our 40th wedding anniversary and we wanted to travel again to the Bar Harbor area, a place we had not visited in over 30 years. We had heard from friends of ours who had stayed at the Coach Stop Inn and had a wonderful experience so we decided to call the Inn and check them out.
We loved the Coach Stop Inn!
Jeff and Natalie were probably born to be inn keepers. Their warmth made us feel at home immediately. Natalie has done a superb job with the furnishings and such as well as with the herb garden in the back. Jeff's breakfasts are creative, delicious, artistically presented, delicious, and they taste pretty good, too.
At the risk of our room not being available the next time we need it, we cannot recommend the Inn more highly. Every time we go to Maine, we set aside at least one day to catch up with Natalie and Jeff.
Your comfort, and a delightfully full belly each morning, will be their primary concern.
WOW!!! What a fantastic spot!!! I want to transport Natalie and Jeff and the Coach Stop to each location that I travel to in the future.
We were looking for something different, to spend a few days playing hooky from the world. (after 40+ years of marriage, call it a second honeymoon). It all started by the way the Inn responded to reservations (and changes) - we got to speak to a real person. Positive, friendly, and relaxed. Trekking from New Mexico to Maine we got there one afternoon and discovered a jewel of a 17th century inn (with a real herb garden yet!), with an open door, a warm welcome, a cup of tea, all as if we were visiting with our favourite niece. The rooms so perfect (with modcons of the 21 century) that we spent a lot of time in it, there's reading material on the dressor, towels galore, flowers inside and out, just like home.
Friendly and cozy place to stay
A lovely B & B just outside of town on the main road. Stayed there 9/05 for 3 nights and it was wonderful. The host, Jeff and Natalie, couldn't have been nicer. The breakfast were fantastic and almost couldn't wait to get home mid afternoon for pie and coffee. The Inn was built in the early 1800's (remolded beautifully) and we highly recommend it.

A Wonderful Retreat
My wife and I recently had the pleasure of staying at a wonderful B&B in Bar Harbor, ME. The Coach Stop Inn is a delightful and comfortable B&B,located a short distance from downtown and Acadia National Park. Jeff & Natalie greeted us on our arrival and we were extremely accommodating to our needs. Our room was cozy and beautifully decorated. Breakfast in the morning was the best we've experienced in any of our B&B stays anywhere in New England. A great place to stay if visiting the Bar Harbor/Acadia area!
B&B's Don't Get Better Than This
What a delight. Turn of the century rustic elegance, wonderful, experienced and caring hosts, superb food, and complete comfort from the get-go. We spent our first night in the Heritage room which made us feel as we'd moved back 200 years, when this was a tavern and actual "Coach Stop". Our final two nights were in the Abbey Suite, complete with curtained tub, and a delightful sitting room. Jeff and Natalie have hit a home run here, which is incredible, given their take-over and re-do of this establishment in April 2005. You will enjoy their youthful enthisiasm, their decorative and time-sensitive touches, their maturity in this business, sense of history, and yes, those signature blueberry fritters. We'll be back...........Dave and Carolyn
A warm and wonderful Inn
We recently spent two nights at the Coach House Inn and we were very impressed with the warm welcome we received from the owners Jeff and Natalie. We loved our two room suite with a fireplace. The Inn is lovely, beautifully decorated and the morning breakfasts by Jeff were strictly gourmet.
Each afternoon Natalie bakes a new treat for the guests. She also was so helpful in making recomendations and reservations for dinners.
We recommend it highly!
My husband & I stayed at the Coach Stop Inn for 3 nights while visiting Acadia. We truly had an excellent stay--the best B&B we've been to. Jeff & Natalie, the innkeepers, were so warm and friendly--really the perfect hosts. The breakfasts were gourmet-level & absolutely delicious. There are tasty baked goods in the afternoons too. We felt it was a really great value as well considering the rates in the area. I'd recommend this spot to anyone.
