The Good and the Bad of Bar Harbor

... DiMatteo's - see Deborah's write up. Excellent food, for a reasonable price!! The B&B we stayed at is called The Yankee Lady, had a couple of good breakfasts there. On July 4th, we headed out of Dodge (read: Bar Harbor) prior to the start of the parade, as we did not want to be stuck there. Good thing too, because as we headed out of town, the number of vehicles coming the other looked like a parade in itself. Whew! dodged that bullet!

We took a different route ...

... streets with shops and restaurants in clapboard houses painted many colours. There is a main square where there is a church with Tiffany windows and a town museum.

Along the waterfront there are some new properties, condominiums and a hotel and shops and a Marina style area which is where we board the trolley for the 2 1/2 hour tour of Bar Harbor and the park. Our driver and guide,Ron, is a local and gives us a great commentary and maybe more than we ...

The lobster story

... Had a bright blue lobster to show us. When a female is brought up with eggs on its tail, they put a hole in the middle tail fin, so it will be recognised as a female the following year if caught.

Stopped at Jordan Pond in the park – this has been made by glacial activity and looked very dreamy in the mist.

... the views. Today the outdoor seating was closed but the view from inside was nice when the clouds lifted. I enjoyed a salad, a popover (this comes with your order) and a crab cake. It was all delicious! The rain finally stopped and I was able to enjoy some of the trails that wind along Jordan Pond. This pond is a source of fresh water for the island and you (and your pets) are not allowed to swim in it. ...

... annoying guy - again Mass. plates {nothing against Mass I am sure there are some great people there, we met two jerks though today} passed us and then subsequently the trolly bus on double yellow up the winding mountain roads. The view from the top of the mountain is phenomenal We went back around the loop again to see if we could do the Beehive and bit the bullet and pulled in to park well up the road from Sand Beach (nearly 4:00) ...

    Historical Traveler Reviews Quimby House Inn Bar Harbor

    Awesome Stay!

    from

    This is our third year coming to Bar Harbor and staying at The Quimby House Inn. The hosts are wonderful people and have truly gone out of their way to make our visits enjoyable. They are very knowledgeable and most helpful at referals ranging from dining to area attractions and activities.

    The rooms at The Inn are quiet, beautifully decorated, spacious and immaculate. We would definately recommend this Inn.

    A Quiet Stay

    from

    My wife and I returned for a visit to the Bar Harbor area for the first time in 6 years, and we decided to stay at the Quimby House Inn. W e booked a room in advance, and they put us in the annex. We found our room to be a bit "cozy", but clean and comfortable, which is what's really important to us! The hosts were warm and welcoming, and we didn't have any problems with parking, noisy guests or traffic sounds. We had driven up from the Kittery area (4+ hours), so we were ready for some rest and relaxation and certainly received that,and more. We recommend the Quimby House if you stay in Bar Harbor!

    Great place!

    from

    Stayed here for an anniversary get-away on a Saturday night and were amazed by the room we got. For a very reasonable price (with AAA discount also) we got a king size bed surrounded by beautiful furniture. There was a seperate living room with a very good qualtity TV, DVD player, and mini-fridge that held more than we would ever need.

    Home away from Home

    from

    We have a stayed at Quimby NUMEROUS times over the past few years. Tom & Gail couldnt be better hosts. The rooms are as immaculate and as clean as the beautiful grounds behind the Inn. Tom & Gail really go out of their way to make us feel at home whenever we vist. I proposed to my wife nearby and just returned from our honeymoon which of course, we spent at the Quimby. The rates are great, rooms are clean and all within walking distance of downtown. Wouldnt even consider staying anywhere else. I've recommended Quimby to many co workers and friends.

    Wonderful accommodations

    from

    We just returned from a fun-filled 3-night stay at the lovely Quimby House Inn in Bar Harbor, Maine. The Inn is very clean and comfortable and offers quiet, spacious rooms at an affordable price. (I found it in AAA book with 3 diamonds.) The Inn's owners and staff are very friendly. In fact, I booked it because of how helpful the owner, Gale was when I called. Best of all, the location of the inn is a convenient walking distance to downtown and the pier. It's also a quick 2-mile ride via bicycle to Acadia National Park's scenic carriage roads. (We didn't use our car for 2 days.)

    Wonderful place to stay

    from

    We stayed at the Quimby House for three nights and were very pleased with both the room and the service. All the staff was helpful, giving us suggestions about good places to eat and useful info about the town. We even had to change rooms, due to availabilty which we knew in advance, and they handled it all for us. Both rooms were beautifully appointed, very clean, and the bathrooms like new. Room 208, a large corner room, was our favorite with a big bathroom that even had a window. There was plenty of on site parking, and we were able to walk to all the shops, restuarants and the harbor. They have a very nice area in the back with tables and chairs and have a multi level deck that serves as an entrance to all levels in the back. It was a wonderful place to stay and a great value.

    We loved the Quimby Inn.

    from

    We were very pleased with the Quimby and would definitely stay there again. The room was spacious and very clean. The host and hostess were quite accomodating and their recommendations proved to be accurate and helpful. The location was perfect.

    Great Location!

    from

    We just stayed at the Quimby Inn from 8/1 - 8/3. What a find!! Bar Harbor can be a bit expensive which we expect for a destination of this type. I came across this inn from another topic on this forum. Boy am I glad I did. The inn is on Cottage Street - 5 minute to the shopping area - with plenty even on Cottage Street. Not too far from some deli's/breakfast spots etc. The owners of the inn - we only met Gale are doing a fantastic job. The rooms are completely remodeled, very clean and very comfortable. They are also appointed very well. All for a very reasonable price for this area. We spent $290 for two nights - you could easily spend that for one night in Bar Harbor and not have off street parking within walking distance of everything! The staff was very helpful in giving suggestions and offering up ideas for places to see and where to eat! Even though we didnt use them the lawn area out back has chairs/tables to relax the morning. They have menus available for most of the restaurants so you can check them out prior to going to them - they have all kinds of area attractions phamplets. Overall we would gives this 5 stars if they were listed as a hotel in tripadvisor - I hope they get listed soon or maybe not - it's a good secret right now!

    Will stay here again

    from

    I stayed here July 22, 2005 for my 1 night over-stay in Bar Harbor before going to Swan's Island. I was not disappointed in anything. I had a very large room on the 3rd floor(requested) that was extremely comfortable. The layered decks & stairs on the back made things easy when not taking the inside stairs, which were no problem to ascend. The innkeepers were very helpful, but this being my 4th trip through Bar Harbor I knew this was the best location, within walking distance to town center. I did take their advice and eat at the Bluefish Cafe, a little expensive but excellant food!!

    I will be staying again next year when I return.

    Welcoming comfort in a home-like atmosphere

    from

    We just returned from a magnificent vacation in the Acadia region of Maine with a side trip to Nova Scotia. Our home away from home was the Quimby House Inn located in Bar Harbor, Maine. Tom and Gayle Abbot are the innkeepers, they run a very comfortable clean and welcoming establishment. This was our second trip to Bar Harbor and we would not think of staying anywhere else. The property is well kept and appears newly renovated. There is ample floor space in the rooms and Gayle is in the lobby every morning making coffee and providing a welcoming smile. Both Tom and Gayle are very knowledgeable about the surrounding area, the best restaurants and activities. Ample off street parking is available and you have two excellent restaurants for breakfast that are within three-minute walking distance. (We like Two Cats and Jordan's). Bike and Kayak rental is just outside the front door. The area is quet in the evening but close to the middle of town, a five-minute walk. Joy and I are looking forward to returning with our two adult children (if schedules permit) next year. The Quimby House is family friendly and provides a worry free home away from home.
