My husband and I stayed at the Moseley Cottage in early August during our first trip to Bar Harbor. I had booked the Moseley based on the positive reviews I saw on this site and was not disappointed! The Moseley is absolutely charming, the owners and staff are lovely and helpful with recommendations for both hikes in Acadia and dining...

We stayed in the Sargent Room in the Inn and it was beautiful! Spacious, private, and peaceful. The bed was a little soft for our liking, but we slept well. Terrific breakfast and housekeeping - very clean. The owners were very friendly. Great free cookies and scones daily! Terrific location in town but still has a private feeling.

This was our first experience with a B&B and we were pleasantly surprised. Staff was friendly and helpful with sightseeing and restaurants. Location was right off the main street but on a very quiet side street and within walking distance to the harbor, shopping and restaurants. Our room was charming with a comfortable bed and for breakfast I had the...

We had another wonderful stay at the Moseley Cottage Inn. We stayed in our favorite room -- the Sargent -- with its comfy bed and private porch. Pam and Scott continue to be wonderful hosts and we are beginning to feel like family (this was our 5th year there). Mary shared the recipe for her excellent and tasty granola --...

We stayed in the Strath Eden Room. It was spacious, clean and comfortable. The only short coming I would say is the water temperature for the shower is off but manageable. The staff is friendly, helpful, and makes you feel welcomed. Pam is knowledgeable of what to do in the area and will suggest various hikes in Acadia National Park....

We loved the Mosely Cottage. We stayed in the cottage on the 2nd floor. We sat on the porch and drank wine and walked downtown when we wanted to. It was a great place to relax and unwind. The breakfasts were SO good. Better than higher priced B&B's. The people that work their are very helpful and friendly.

The rooms in the motel are a little dated but it has a comfortable feel to it like staying at your grandmother's house. Very friendly staff and great coffee maker in the room.

My husband and I decided to splurge on our vacation (August 2011) and spend the extra money for the Jordan Pond room. It was perfect! It had a private porch, sitting area, mini-fridge, giant comfy bed, and a working fireplace. We found Moseley the perfect place to stay for Bar Harbor and Acadia National Park Activities. Bar Harbor is very...

Trip Advisor gave this motel very high marks. High ratings and the very reasonable rates are what sold us on a two night stay. We were not disappointed. The street in which the Town Motel was located was lovely, quiet and just a 1/2 block walk to Main Street. You couldn't beat that. The room was immaculate, wonderful amenities -...

This is without a doubt one of the best locations for a B&B in Bar Harbor. Just 2 blocks from the Main Street down a quiet neighborhood road, it is the best of both worlds. You are in a quaint, beautiful bed and breakfast within walking distance to EVERYTHING but still in an "off the beaten path" kind of feel....
