    Historical Traveler Reviews Moseley Cottage Inn and Town Motel Bar Harbor

    An Eight Day Feast

    from

    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!

    from

    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!

    from

    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..

    from

    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

    from

    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

    from

    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

    from

    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

    from

    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

    from

    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!

    from

    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

Driving through the serene woodlands and rocky shorelines of Arcadia National Park, we came to Thunder Hole (like our blow holes) where the ocean swells into a narrow cavern of rocks. There were masses of pink granite in the area. The lands for this national park were donated by John D. Rockefeller from an era when this area was a resort for the ...

    ... was OK but definitely not great. This continued into the main course as Karl's pork chop was overcooked, his potato's were cold and my Chick Pea Curry dish over cauliflower - boiled and crumbled - was tasteless. I actually sent it back – something I never do. I had the mixed salad instead and it was again OK but nothing to write home about. We went away disappointed and certainly did not get the value that we paid for the meal as it is a pricey place. To their credit they did ...

    On the first day in Acadia we drove around the west side of Mount Desert Island, right down to Bass Harbor. Here we stopped to check out the little seaside village and try the amazing crab dip from Thurston's Lobster Pound, recommended by a customer in a nearby art gallery. After this we drove around more of the island and stopped off for a swim at Echo Lake's small sandy beach.
    On the second day we headed up Cadillac Mountain to see the breathtaking ...
