      Historical Traveler Reviews Maples Inn Bar Harbor

      Home Away from Home

      from

      We were guests at the Maples Inn a couple weeks ago. What a delightful place! The accomodations were perfect. The location was great. And the attention to detail, remarkable! The Innkeeper, Tom, goes out of his way to meet your needs. The breakfast was gourmet-scrumptious. The price for this room was so reasonable for the level of accomodations! Don't miss this place if you are in the area!

      Raises the Bar

      from

      Recently spent a glorious week in Bar Harbor at the Maples Inn. Immaculate and comfortable were the accomodations, but the most outstanding attribute was the hospitality provided by the innkeeper, Tom and his attentive assistants, Dana and Mike. The breakfasts were made from scratch and delicious. Special dietary concerns were handled with ease. The location is on a quiet residential street, within easy walk of shops, waterfront and restaurants. Entrance to Acadia National Park is just a few minutes drive. As a seasoned B & B traveler, I highly recommend the Maples Inn. They "raise the bar" in Bar Harbor!

      Best ever!

      from

      The Maples is the best place I have ever stayed anywhere, no contest. Tom has thought of every detail, from providing coffee starting an hour before breakfast, to providing guidebooks to Acadia that you are allowed to take with you hiking. I have never stayed at such a nice place that was so comfortable--it seems if an inn is "nice" it is also "stuck up"--and if it's relaxed then the accomodations are shabby. Well, at the Maples the accomodations are perfect and the atmosphere is completely soothing. Tom makes you feel like his personal guest. I cannot recommend The Maples highly enough and am looking forward to my next visit!

      Loved the Maples

      from

      The Maples is a lovely inn, the kind of place where you tell the innkeeper you like half and half in your coffee and the next morning, it's brought to you when you come down to breakfast. The rooms were beautifully maintained, fresh towels every day, great cookies at 4. As lovely as the 2 course breakfasts were, it would be nice to have a lighter option if you just wanted a piece of toast. Tom was eager to accomodate any request. Everyone in Bar Harbor was incredibly nice and helpful. After being treated like crap in Ogunguit, this was most appreciated. Tom gave us hints on restaurants as well, Havana, Cafe This Way and Thurstons(sp?) Lobster Pound were all first rate! The location was great too, no water view, but able to walk downtown, a quick trip to Acadia National Park and not noisy. A winner!

      None better for sheer hospitality

      from

      We loved this place! Never in all our years of B&Bing have we felt more welcomed or at ease. Tom has the knack of making people feel valued, and he is so at ease with having people in his home (not always the case with innkeepers). He was accomodating and friendly. The attention to detail is evident throughout the house, and it is so comfortable! We can't wait to get back and will definitely stay longer.

      A superb, graceful retreat

      from

      My wife and I just returned from our third stay at the Maples Inn. This relatively unassuming B&B has an uncanny ability to create a sense of calm and relaxation that I have not previously experienced. The innkeeper, Tom, pays exceptional attention to detail making one feel quite welcome, if not pampered. All that he does has a cumulative effect, turning the inside of the Inn into an existential amnion, likely not at all apparent to the uninitiated. There is little doubt in my mind that if that famous writer residing in Bangor, Maine (Stephen King) were to visit this Inn, he would be provoked to write at least a short story of its strange ability to lower blood pressure and induce a near bardo-state in all but the most insensitive of travelers. We have already told Tom that we will be back next year, and for one additional night - maybe adding a night each of the years that follow.

      Book it and eat out for breakfast

      from

      My husband and I spend three very relaxing evenings at the inn. The attention to small details is clear and you really do feel like you are home.The room was lovely and very clean. The service was also very very good. The only thing i did not like much was the breakfast. To get to the point it is not that good. In the three days there we were served two identical breakfasts. Sure they called it something else but it was the same foods in different shapes or plates. I would have killed for a glass of milk and some cereal by day three. The word "gourmet" is used in the wrong text at the maples inn yet, you cannot help but be gracious at their attempt. Book it and eat out.

      Perfect!

      from

      Perfect downtown location, perfect breakfast, perfect service.

      Just like home, except the food's better!

      from

      We enjoyed two nights at the Maples in May 2002. Upon arrival we felt very welcome and comfortable. The place has little touches that make the inn seem lived in, not just slept in. The cookies that appeared every afternoon in the parlor were scrumptious and the breakfasts were fancy -- everyone could tell that the food was painstakingly prepared for taste, color and adventure. Everything in Bar Harbor village is within walking distance, too. We highly recommend it.

      A real gem

      from

      What a delight! The Maples Inn is such a clean and friendly inn. All of the rooms are beautifully decorated--no details seem to have gone unnoticed. The innkeeper, Tom, went out of his way to make us feel comfortable, welcome and relaxed. The breakfast was simply delicious and the freshly-baked cookies that magically appear in the cookie jar every day at 4:00 are not to be missed. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay there and look forward to returning.

      ... and settled in to welcome the sun. We couldn't have asked for a better morning: the sky was hinting at the first burst of light providing some amazing reds, blues and yellows and there wasn't a cloud to be found.

      Around 7 am with the sun making its way up the skyline, we decided it was time to head down the mountain and find some breakfast. We happened to notice that the landbridge between Bar Harbor and Bar Island was visible, so before tide took ...

If you have time, I recommend a trip to Acadia National Park, which makes up almost the entirety of Mount Desert Island (more on that to come in later posts). After, again, promising not to leave Max unattended and, promptly leaving Max unattended, we headed downtown to eat some dinner and mingle with the locals. Mark found this awesome restaurant for dinner, Side Street Cafe ...

I will also mention that it was at this point we also discovered people from Maine also eat lobster ice cream - yes, they actually have chunks of lobster mixed in with their ice cream. I will leave you with that thought while I continue...

      ... own little piece of subversion. They had two little girls with them, about 5 and 6 I'd guess. And, they'd come up the same trail as we had. Huh? Oh well, they were transplanted Aussies living in Houston, so they didn't know any better... So, we're out of here tomorrow and headed for New Brunswick and Nova Scotia. With DC turned off we've got some extra time and it just looks too cool on the map to pass up. So what's another 5 or600 miles? We've already gone ...

      ... Next thing you know, it was almost noon and the sun was beginning to peek out. That was all the invitation I needed!

      I packed up and headed to Acadia National Park. Today on the itinerary were the Carriage Roads, the one thing left on my list I hadn't done. The carriage roads were built by Rockefellar way back when because he wanted roads for his carriage where no motorized vehicles could go. A place where it would be quiet. They ...
