... shining which fooled us into thinking it was to be another warm day.
Photo taken it was on the coach and into the Acadia National Park. This is mainly pine trees with birch trees between. We went to a beach which was similar to Abel Tasman where you come out of the forest onto a hidden beach. We ooed and ahhed like the rest of them. The best one of the day however was when we ...
... their hanging baskets for summer but as today is their last day of summer and tomorrow is the 1st of autumn most doorways and front steps are decorated with pumpkins. Shops are full of scary Halloween stuff and even clothes shops are decorated in oranges and browns.
The housing is amazing. 99% are large and wooden with the majority painted white. They are so tidy.

... 15 miles from Bar Harbor. We went on a nice long and exhilarating hike followed by a nice long kayak ride. I had never been in a kayak or paddled one before so I had no clue or idea of what to do. We rented three kayaks, a double and two singles. We all had fun going in them and we felt like we were on the English rowing team. We returned to the docks, returned our equipment then went to dinner at a nearby restaurant. When we got finished, we ate ice cream, then turned in for the ...

... huge. Do they park out in the sea and ship them in?!) so there were more people at the amenities but not on the trails. They get off the bus at the parking lots and take a quick peek and get right back on. Back for a warm up coffee and cookie at the inn and then go out for a yoga class - this one is much more normal. Very enjoyable. Back for the tail end chat at cheese and wine - Marion who runs ...

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.

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
