Historical Traveler Reviews Moseley Cottage Inn and Town Motel Bar Harbor
An Eight Day Feast
The stay at this inn was a total experience of gracious living in an environment from the Victorian era transported to modern times with all its comforts. Our stay was an eight day feast of fabulous breakfasts: each day a different culinary and aesthetic experience.
Every detail was attended to from the table settings to the service.
The warm and generous hospitality given by the hosts, including informative and interesting conversation, went beyond the ususal B&B experience.

Next best place to being at home!
We have had the pleasure, and I do mean pleasure, of staying at both the Moseley and the Town Motel. We prefer the Inn, but have stayed at the Motel when there were no vacancies, and both were immaculate, well maintained and cared for, and convenient. But perhaps the most important thing that cannot be overlooked, or ever underestimated, are the hosts, Chris and Christine. They are perfect, take their job very seriously, treat each guest individually, and go out of their way to ensure that your stay is both pleasant, satisfying, and memorable. The food is altogether another experience entirely! Breakfast with Chris and Christine is an experience each and every day! All foods are prepared with the best of ingredients, and after staying at the Inn at least four different times, I have never been served anything short of Top Shelf! A super experience that we will hopefully do many more times.
I recently stayed here with a few of my good buddies -- we had two rooms in the motel. We were very happy - the motel is on a quiet street which was great because we were there on Labor day weekend and town was wild! There's a nice yard to hang out in and best of all the innkeepers are super friendly and helpful -- they recommended excellent restaurants (Mama Dimatteos! Burning Tree!) and great, lesser known hikes. The best!
Clean, comfy, and quiet..
Value priced accomodations with first class service, friendly hosts, to die for banana chocolate chip muffins, and comfortable beds. Slept like a baby..I'll be back.
Moseley - a terrific B&B
Lovely B&B on a quiet street off Main in the heart of Bar Harbor. Spotless, quaint, wonderful home made breakfast.
Very reasonable prices, most hospitable hosts.
Just stayed for 3 days w/ my Mom and my Beau.
We all highly recommend the Town Motel and Moseley (complete name) on Atlantic St.
Great stay at Moseley Cottage & Acadia
The folks at the Moseley Cottage Inn provided extremely clean and friendly accommodations. Breakfast was great. They even had vegetarian breakfast options.
They also gave great suggestions on hikes & walks in Acadia National Park. We has a wonderful stay & plan to return.
Lovely place to stay in Bar Harbor
This is a very nice family-run inn. We've stayed in the bed & breakfast and also the motel. Both are clean and comfortable, and located close to everything in Bar Harbor. The staff are courteous and accomodating. The breakfast is delicious. I recommend it to everyone I meet who is vacationing in Bar Harbor. An excellent value for the price.
Our Favorite Place to Stay in Bar Harbor
We have been staying at the Town Motel & Mosely Cottage every year for the past 7 to 8 years. We have stayed in the house in a charming room and we have stayed in the motel. Our experiences have been great. The location is perfect. You can walk downtown to the harbor and visit shops and restaurants along the way. We'll be there again this year the 3rd week in July.
A quaint place
A clean motel and the owner is very hospitable. We stayed in the motel instead of the B&B. The beds are a bit hard and the pillows as well. No shampoo provided. Overall a decent place but nothing fancy. I think with a little money invested in better bedding it would be great! The coffee in the B&B is not so good.
First Class Inn!
My wife and I have traveled quite a bit over the years, staying in many fine bed and breakfast inns. Most have been pleasant experiences, a few have been exceptional . . . Moseley Cottage Inn falls into the "exceptional" categroy. We have visited the Inn four times over the past five years, and each stay has been a pleasure. The hosts are always congenial, going out of their way to make sure a visit to the fine Inn at Bar Harbor is a memorable one. Always clean, comfortable accommodations await us at Moseley's. The breakfasts are gourmet, always different, with something for everyone, and always delicious! This Inn is a gem nestled on a quiet side street in downtown Bar Harbor. We are already looking forward to our next visit to the Moseley Cottage Inn. Chip and Ginny Derr

... able to walk the bar and look at shells and rocks and stuff. Pretty neat. Back to the town and shopped a little. Very quick dinner to make the sunset in time. Sunset at Cadillac Mountain. Lots of people, tons of cameras, we got some fabulous pics here. Back to the teeny, tiny rooms to plan for tomorrow with hot chocolate and ...
... town and harbor. The morning's outing was another gift of Mr. Rockefeller, Jr. Apparently the bar and small island had been a popular walking area, but as part of the island was privately owned a controversy arose when the owner decided to seek local legal protection to block public access. Rockefeller quietly bought up the island and the bar and donated it to the National Park system so that it would continue to be open to the public.
I didn't realize ...
... about all a seaside resort community can offer. W told our waiter today, that last visit we had a twin lobster lunch for $9.95. He laughed and said, that'll run you $42 today. So much for inflation.
This little jaunt up the coast, has not taken us as long as we thought it might. We have seen much of what we came to see, enough to make the trip another memory book full of sights, sounds, smells, ...
... this evening is a Lobster Bake. They eat lobsters here like we eat chicken and it's quite cheap. $20 - $30 per pound.
Dinner was delicious! They gave us mussels as well but they were very tiny. Not much bigger than a 5 cent piece.
PS Joyce is the same Tour Director we had in the Rockies. Quite unusual. She remembered us too but wasn't going to say anything until we did.
... pie. Well, when in Maine… This is the first test of the credit card since last night’s debacle, and we are very pleased to make a successful transaction.
There’s another long driving day ahead tomorrow (for Mr Fletche at least…I have still not got behind the wheel of the FM2013) so we head back to finish up packing. We leave behind the coast and head inland to the forests of the White Mountains in New ...
