    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.

    Completely Awesome!


    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

    ... it was engulfing the lighthouse + the tide was too high for us to walk over to it. Looking into the waters of the Bay of Fundy, we could see x's painted on the rocks under water that marked the path to the lighthouse. We had found the "end of the road." As we stood there, occasionally you could see a very vague glimpse of the lighthouse. It was disappointing, but still interesting. Afraid we'd get stuck in the circle again, we took a different route back to ...

    ... have been taking notes. October 18th. After a great walk up Piper Mountain( and a wander through the historic Beckford Cemetery) it was time to travel west. Passing by calendar worthy, whitewashed towns framed by fading fall plumage in my new words of the day, burnt umber, raw sienna, and ochre. We traveled on winding side roads spotting inviting paths with the unlikely western sounding names of Rattlesnake Road and Shotgun Gulch. The wind rocked Wanda about, sending the ...

    ... ever, Fish House Grill ( ll-bar-harbor). Their oysters were dirty and tasted three days old and they were out of almost every local beer. This place was an absolute tourist trap as it was $29 for a dozen oysters and the only thing going for it was the deck seating which offered views of the harbor., we should have gone to a lobster pound. Regardless, we had such a nice date ...

    ... During the ride we were able to pass Burnt Island lighthouse. For years we have attempted to visit as many of the east coast lighthouses as possible on our travels. Some we have been able to climb and others just take pictures from its base. It has been neat to add to our lighthouse tour on this trip. This is the first one we have ever sailed around, so that made it pretty unique. I loved being on the calm water and hearing the relaxing ...

    ... speak, and I am all about that, so I have kept those words in mind. It was a cloudy and foggy day, so I decided to put off some of the "must see" destinations that wouldn't have been as great without good visibility, and I headed to the "quieter" less touristy side of the island. And I took roads that were off the beaten track, even though I was carrying my GPS and my Park map. This side of the island is definitely quieter, but there ...
