B&B Information

Welcome to our home where we offer DownHome Comfort and DownEast Charm

Eric and Michelle are delighted that you are looking at our home for your upcoming vacation. Built in 1876, our home was originally built as summer lodging for the wealthy looking to escape the heat of Boston and New York City. This house has had several reincarnations over its life and has been summer apartments, a hostel and a nursing home. Spared from the devastating fire of 1947 that burned much of Acadia National Park and Bar Harbor, this house was finally turned into a Bed & Breakfast in the early 1980's.

Today, this home's wonderful accommodations and amenities make it the perfect setting for your Bar Harbor visit. Beautiful and elegant, comfortable and tranquil we work hard to create a relaxing adult atmosphere, your escape from the everyday. Leave your cares and worries behind and come stay with us and let our home be your homebase for a fun and exciting vacation for you and your traveling companion.
Our location is within walking distance to downtown but just far enough away from the hustle and bustle. Our house is so close to several entrances to Acadia National Park that you can drive, walk, or bike from our inn and be in the park in a matter of minutes. Whether you choose to spend the day in the National Park, shopping in downtown Bar Harbor, or sailing around the island on a cruise start your day off here at the Holbrook House with one of our hand crafted breakfasts.

Choose from one of our delightfully appointed guest rooms, luxury suite or our 2-bedroom suite. All have private baths, AC, and Wi-Fi. Looking for a room with a fireplaces or private decks? We've got the room just for you. Girlfriends weekend? Traveling with friends? We've got just the suite for you.
Michelle and Eric love to renovate rooms in the winter season. Check out our fully renovated rooms, Lafayette Suite, Compass Rose, Beachcomber and Seafarer. These all have modern bathrooms and amenities. We are sure you'll love them as much as we do.
And all guests can enjoy the lovely grounds and gardens, the extensive public spaces, and the incredible breakfasts with which we spoil you daily. Come, enjoy, and give yourselves the Bar Harbor getaway you deserve!
