    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.

    ... they offer their famous popovers (like yorkshire pudding), a unique tradition dating from 1780’s, served with butter and strawberry jam. We had the conversation with the Americans on the bus as to what a “whoppie pie’ was and its origin. They decided it was like a giant oreo and one lady said she makes a pumpkin one and puts cream cheese icing in the centre which sounded very nice…they thought it was an Amish ...

    ... flavoured everything !! So many lobster dinner restaurants everywhere you looked. We really enjoyed this village. The fog was thick and the air was dewey. Exactly how you would imagine a fishing town. We ate some food and Caro may have had the best clam chowder on the planet. Mmm! After a nice day, even though we had lots of rain (the only day of rain we had our entire trip---we were amazed by this!) we made our way back to our motel for the ...

    One more day in Bar Harbor.....

    I woke up this morning to......you guessed it, rain. More rain. And ordinarily, I might be very discouraged and disappointed, but quite frankly, the past two days I had been on the go so fast and furious and I was ready to slow down. Today is my last day in Bar Harbor, but it felt good to get up at an easy pace, have my coffee and breakfast on the front porch while I did my best to access the internet by computer. I even spent some time reading. ...
