We were dropped in the town for a free afternoon. John went on a boat trip and I chose to just mosey around doing nothing much. Doing nothing much turned out to be perishing. I had my rain jacket on and the wind went straight through. I went into a shop and bought a sherpa! Translates to a zip up sweatshirt hoodie with thick fleece lining. Out on the street a man ...
We headed out of Boston at 8 am having to have our suitcases out our doors at 6.45! I had rained overnight but was fining up.
We travelled through Massachusetts, New Hampshire for only 15 miles and onto Maine. Our first stop was at York to see one of the few lighthouses that still has a lighthouse keeper.

... my park pass and getting my National Park Passport Stamp (yee-haw!). After that I headed down to downtown Bar Harbor for a bite to eat. I could not believe how many people were there! I mean, the traffic was backed up for miles with people LEAVING the park, since the holiday is over and it has been raining here all day, and yet I still had to search for a parking place. I drove past certain areas that have a view of the ocean, but you couldn't see anything for the ...
It's travel day again... Not only travel day it's u.s. border day. This morning started with the Hannah alarm at 6:15 with the snooze not working.

Historical Traveler Reviews Saltair Inn Waterfront B&B Bar Harbor
Wonderful place. Young, bright, and new! With the great historic charm of the old days in Bar harbor. Right on the ocean. Great food and people.
My husband and I recently headed to Bar Harbor, ME to spend a couple of days. We had not made reservations in advance, so we knew we were taking a chance.
Upon arrival in early evening, we came across The Saltair Inn on West Street with a vacancy sign.
This Inn just opened in April. The rooms are wonderfully decorated and very, very clean. The Innkeepers are great, very warm and friendly. The breakfasts are to die for, especially the blueberry pancakes.
The joke is, we went for a night and stayed for a week.
I have just returned from a long weekend spent at the wonderful Saltair Inn. Bar Harbor is one of my favorite destinations, and have traveled there several times. Matt and Kristi, hosts/owners, helped to make this visit most memorable. The Inn is exquisitely appointed. I stayed in the Harbor Suite, which offers a spectacular view of Frenchmans bay with access to the deck where one can relax while enjoying the seascape. It was an honor to slumber in the king sized bed; words fail its level of comfort. The fireplace, and claw foot tub were welcomed amenities adding to the experience. The breakfasts were multiple courses of delight. From the moment one walks through the charming dutch doors; you feel welcomed, relaxed, and special. Bar Harbor and Acadia National Park are true gems of the Northeast; the Saltair Inn adds to the sparkle.
The Saltair Inn is poetry incarnate!: waterfront, four luxury suites, harbor view, clawfoot tub, king-size feather bed, automated fireplaces, reserved parking, mouth-watering gourmet breakfasts, home-made snacks and beverages in the afternoon, luxury without pretention, comfort with extreme attention to detail, relaxation . . . Because it is waterfront on West Street . . . it has quick pedestrian access to downtown Bar Harbor, without the traffic jams and chaos of Cottage and Main Street. Perfect access to the Acadia National Park (via 198) and one never has to search for parking . . . because you always have a reserved space. My three favorite reasons to stay here . . . the Food is perfection (made to order), there are only four suites (so service and attention are superlative) . . . and the Harbour Suite has the most comfortable bed in which slept in my life! Picture a King-size feather bed at the foot of an automated fireplace, with a picture window view of the Sound. It was peaceful, romantic and relaxing! Five stars!!!
The Inn is beautifully appointed, and the setting, with an extended rolling lawn leading down a gentle slope to the Ocean, is spectaular. A western exposure allowed us to watch the sunset over the Ocean from adirondack chairs on the lawn.
Staying at The Saltair Inn for a much needed five day get-away was the smartest thing we could have done! Matt and Kristi are suberb innkeeps, anticipating every comfort we might need. We stayed in the Master Suite on the first floor and simply luxuriated in the king sized four poster bed, the huge armchairs in the sun room and the two person jacuzzi in the bathroom. I love Mount Desert and Acadia National Park and have spent many summers on the island, exploring the mountains and streams, ponds and inlets, but some days it was a struggle to leave those armchairs, with the view of Frenchmen's Bay and Bar Island right at the end of the lawn. When we did manage to go exploring and climbing, we came home to fresh baked cookies and iced tea, and two fireplaces in our rooms in case the evenings got chilly (this was in early June). As if that were not enough, the breakfasts were delicious, from waffles to crustless quiches, and made the tea time at Jordan Pond House just about perfect. Lunch might have been redundant.
My wife and I have just returned home from one of our most relaxing and enjoyable "get-away" weekends we have had in quite some time. And we owe it all to our hosts Matt and Kristi and their fabulous bed and breakfast. I wanted to go somewhere special for my wife's fortieth birhtday. I narrowed it down and picked the Saltair Inn from pictures and descriptions on their web site. Wanting it to be a special weekend I was hoping the pictures were accurate. They were accurate if not quite conveying the full beauty and elegance of the Inn. The Saltair Inn has a Victorian charm to it. High ceilings, hardwood floors and large antique pieces in every room. I mentioned to the hosts when I reserved our room that this was a special occasion. And did they make us feel special. Greeting us at the door when we arrived they informed us on all we would need to know during our stay. They then showed us to our room where our stay was made special indeed. A bottle of bubbly on ice and flowers around the room. My wife was delighted. We stayed in the Master Suite, which was larger than the description made it out to be and was tastefully decorated. It has a king size bed with an excellent mattress and soft almost fluffy comforter. The Master Suite has its' own sitting room with a couch and two very comfortable oversized chairs. These chairs face the curved wall of floor to ceiling windows that overlook Frenchman Bay. This room has a gas powered wood burning stove and the bedroom area has a large, open, gas powered fireplace. My wife loved these. Instant charm and romance with the push of a button. The spacious private bath has a seperate shower and a two person whirlpool. Coffee, tea and hot chocolate are always availble. Refreshments and snack served late afternoon. Breakfast served in the formal dining room, (out on the deck in warmer weather). A small refridgerator in the guests' sitting room is stocked with soft drinks. There are also books, games, etc. in this room which the guests are free to use. This room looks out onto the large deck which itself looks out over the expansive, well kept back yard which overlooks the bay.
Tranquility and Beauty Abound
Saltair Inn, 121 West St, Bar Harbor, ME TRANQUILITY & BEAUTY ABOUND
This newly opened B&B run by Matt & Kristi Losquadro and their two charming daughters offers beautifully appointed rooms, quiet seaside atomosphere, walking distance to all the shopping and eating establishments one could ever want complete with harbor view and a delicious breakfast. In the hustle and bustle of Bar Harbor this offers a wonderfully peaceful setting. Can hardly wait to return.
Can't Wait to Revisit!
What a wonderful stay! The food was wonderful, the inn is gorgeous, the rooms spacious, and the grounds beautiful. You can see the water from anywhere in the house. And the location is spectacular--we were able to take a pleasant stroll to Main Street, yet there wasn't too much traffic on the road in front of the inn. We thoroughly enjoyed getting to know the inn keepers Matt and Kristi too (they made wonderful suggestions for day excursions). We can't wait to return!

What a wonderful place!
We loved the Saltair Inn! We wanted a place on the water that was luxurious, but not stuffy and we found it. The fact that we could also walk into town was a huge bonus. Our suite was beautiful and the view of Frenchman's Bay is amazing, especially in the evenings near sunset. The innkeepers told us that this is their first year, but you wouldn't know it - they were really great. Their hospitality was wonderful and they seem to know everything about the town and the surrounding area. Their breakfasts were really good too. We wish them the best of luck in their inaugural season and we will definitely be back!
