    Historical Traveler Reviews Heathwood Inn Bar Harbor

    A real find at a terrific price!

    from

    My sister and I stayed at the Heathwood in July for 3 nights. We loved the innkeeper, Karen, who made us feel right at home and seems to know everything about Acadia Park and its trails. She's also a terrific cook which did not help my diet. There were lots of fresh locally picked berries (she picks them herself) in her dishes which we loved. Our room was adorable and immaculate. All of her rooms have really nice bathrooms which I don't think people give a lot of attention to. Anyway, I wanted to thank Karen for being such a wonderful hostess!

    Charming

    from

    This is just what I needed for my vacation. The hostess is so nice. The place is very quiet, yet accessible. The rooms are lovely and very clean, just like the whole place. Breakfast is amazingly good with homemade bread, cakes, mufffins and fresh fruit. Do not hesitate to ask Karen if you have particular demands. It is located no more than 10 miles from the center of Bar Harbor. I sincerely recommand the Heathwwod Inn and be sure I will stop by when I go back to Bar Harbor.

    Great room, Great food, and Great host

    from

    My husband and I spent 4 days at the Inn in mid-June. We have stayed at many B&Bs, and this one is definitely at the top of the list.

    The rooms are beautiful and the bed was very comfortable. My husband loved the steam shower at the end of a day of hiking.

    The breakfasts were awesome with a variety of hot dishes, including egg casseroles, coffee cakes, and muffins. We stuffed ourselves each morning. The innkeeper, Karen, is very willing to share her recipes.

    Karen was very helpful in helping us plan each day. She is very knowledgeable about Acadia and the surrounding area. She recommended several hikes that were a lot of fun and offered beautiful views, and she also told us about some great restaurants. She seems to really care about her guests and really makes you feel right at home.

    We really enjoyed our stay and would definitely recommend this inn.

    Loved the Inn and Innkeeper

    from

    We had an amazing five day stay at the Heathwood Inn in Bar Harbor, which wasn't nearly long enough. The room was reasonably priced, spacious, well decorated and came complete with a steam shower which felt so good after a day of hiking. Speaking of hiking, Karen, the Innkeeper, was very knowledgeable regarding the trails that were best suited for our level of hiking, not to mention the ones with the best views. Before we went off for the day, she fed us an awesome breakfast, which kept us going all day. My husband is still talking about it! Loved her fresh out of the oven muffins. I can still smell them! We will be back!

    Very relaxing and fun filled experience

    from

    I have lived in Maine all of my life and visited Bar Harbor many times. Now that I am older I am able to appreciate things more than I used to. This is by far the best time I have had in Bar Harbor. The Inn is wonderful with beautiful rooms! The inn keeper, Karen, cooks a great breakfast and knows all of the fun and adventurous places to go. She'll stear you in the right direction towards the best vacation you can have on this island. I recommend that you come check this place out!!!

    An Absolute Gem

    from

    My boyfriend and I visited Bar Harbor during the fall. We decided to stay here because of the great reviews we read on Tripadvisor. The reviews were so right. This is a great B&B. It is well maintained, very clean, lovely rooms, delicious breakfast, and innkeepers who are very helpful. The price for all this was extremely reasonable for Bar Harbor. Don't hesitate about this B&B. You'll love it.

    Love this Inn!

    from

    My wife and I spent the weekend at this beautifully restored Inn 10/22-23rd.

    We've been coming to Bar Harbor for about 15 years for our anniversary and had stayed previously at this Inn.

    A new owner has taken over and we must say Karen makes the stay special!

    Her enthusiasm mixed with the just the right "Inn keeper" personality made our stay wonderful. Her homemade (and warm) morning breakfast was great!

    The Inn and its perfect location to Bar Harbor have always been a big plus for us. Now the new owner offers another reason that we'll be back for the next 15 years. Great time!

    Beautiful Inn, great location.

    from

    The Heathwood Inn is an excellent place to visit and in a great location just outside of Bar Harbor. The downtown area is absolutely crazy with tourists, but the Inn is in a quiet place but still close to town. The caretaker was a great source of local information that was very helpful. I would stay here again for sure.

    Great value, loved the Heathwood Inn

    from

    My fiancÚ and I spent 5 nights at the Heathwood Inn. We have stayed at several bed and breakfasts in downtown Bar Harbor and decided to give this one a try. What a great place. NOT downtown. Plenty of free parking, air conditioning and convenient to both sides of the Island. It was such a pleasure not having to hunt for a parking space or putting up with the congestion and noise we have experienced downtown. There is a new owner "Karen" just this year. She was great! Very knowledgeable about the Park and Island and makes a wonderful breakfasts. We stayed 3 days in the Evesham room then splurged on the honeymoon suite for the last 2 nights. A truly beautiful room with private Jacuzzi. Try this little gem, you won't be disappointed.

    Bar Harbor: An Excellent Stay at the Lovely Heathwood Inn

    from

    My boyfriend and I just returned from a trip to Bar Harbor, ME. Never having visited the area before, we did some research and decided to book a room at the Heathwood Inn for a 3-night stay. What a wonderful treat it turned out to be! Rather than making a reservation at one of the downtown inns, we opted for the quieter, more remote Heathwood; the inn is right along Route 3, a mere 7-10 minute drive from downtown Bar Harbor, along the Island Explorer's route, and just a few minutes away from Acadia National Park. The inn is very clean, beautifully decorated, and full of items from days long past. We spent three nights in the lovely Evesham Room, where we enjoyed a comfortable bed, plenty of space and light, and a dual steam shower--an excellent way to relax after a busy day on the Island. Each morning, we descended to the parlor for a delicious, plentiful breakfast of fresh fruit, blueberry muffins and varying entrees such as apple oatmeal crumb cake, raspberry crumb cake, breakfast "pizza", fresh peach french toast...all warm and incredibly tasty. Karen, the innkeeper, is wonderful! She is friendly and very helpful to her guests; whenever we had a question, she always had an answer or suggestion. She was full of recommendations for restaurants, hiking trails, and other activities. We could not have asked for someone better to guide us in our first visit to Bar Harbor. All in all, the Heathwood Inn was a wonderful place to return to each day and helped to make our visit to Bar Harbor a very enjoyable and memorable one.

    in Bar Harbor during the colder season. Acadia National park is there
    and is a wonderful place to go hiking or snowshoeing. It is large and
    has a variety of wildlife. Do to all the rain we experienced the day
    we went, we skipped that particular attraction when we went.

    ... Today, it is a Bed and Breakfast resort. The dining room table was built for Joseph Pulitzer in 1893 as he stayed at the Manor for three summers while his home was being built on the island. On to the Looking Glass Restaurant for a slice of blueberry pie before heading to the Oceanarium where we learned about lobsters and lobstering and "met" a rare blue lobster. Most lobsters have red, yellow, and blue pigments in their shells giving them their brown color. The blue ...

Fortunately, the only thing raging for us was our appetite. The parking lot was absolutely jam-packed with cars and the gas station full of semis. We entered the restaurant and were seated immedaitely by the hostess. This is one of those ...

    ... but I really wanted to see a seal. So, I was a happy sailor! Last night while we were walking through the town, we smelled the delightful smell of pizza - Sidestreet style! So, as soon as we got off the sailboat we found that great smell again. After our yummy pizza, we had one more stop to make in Boothbay. We found out that the rock church we were looking for was literally just around the corner from where we turned around the night ...

    Today started out as another cold and drizzly morning. I did not have any real plans and decided to head to the southwest portion of Acadia and the Bass Harbor Heat Lighthouse. This lighthouse is owned by the Coast Guard and has a family living at it. This means you have to stick to the path and observe all the signs about private property. The light probably isn't something you would need to go out of your way to see, ...
