And with the sun dazzling us as we drove to our next little town/overnight stop at Jonesport and the Harbour House B&B wshere we do indeed have a stunning view of the Harbour. But Jonesport is right out of restaurants so we stopped at the Pizza take-away to order our pizza on our way to the grocery store to pick up wine, and chocolate brownies, and salad, collecting our pizza on the way back. High ...
... Sand Beach. Standing on the shores of the beach watching surfers catch the waves, I thought of our time at Tofino, BC when we were there in February watching people do the same thing on the Pacific Ocean. I love the combination of water surrounded by mountains. Water, alluring but scary for me (I don’t know how to swim), the mountains for the spirit and mystery that this terrain holds, I need to climb them. Coming to Cadillac Mountain and ...
... and bitter winds. It's a bit more masculine than the Washington coast, I thought. The park is gorgeous, and you can sit out on the rock cliffs and just stare at the ocean. We were very fortunate to be there on a sunny day. The days on either side of that day were stormy.
We had lunch in Bar Harbor, which is kind of an upscale, touristy spot. Our lunch was pretty nondescript, but it included frozen custard, which was another first for us. Mmmm. Then we ...
Kim fell in love with Bar Harbor - could move there in a minute, if it weren't for their cold winters, so for one last glimse of this wonderful little harbor town, we took one last walk along the harbor trail and took some final photos for memories.
... on the coast are positioned, when the tide comes in, the force of the water against the rocks shoots the water into the air!
4) Cadillac Mountain - If you want to see BREATHTAKING views of the coastline, take the short drive up Cadillac Mountain. This is a definite must-see of Acadia! The road is very narrow and windy but once you get to the top, it's well worth it!
5) Otter Cove - A nice area ...

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
