Shore Path Cottage is our favorite place to stay for our annual vacation at Acadia National Park. The rooms are beautifully appointed. The meals are delicious. And proximity to the ocean makes for wonderful sea breezes and walks along the Shore Path. We return annually to Bar Harbor and always stay at Shore Path Cottage. Maria & Peter M

We stayed here for two nights. What a great place. A huge rambling family home now a B and B. Parking out front and a level walk either along the shore path or side street into the twin of Bar Harbor and all is amenities and restaurants. The Ba nad B atmosphere made it so special with a huge lounge...

When traveling to Bar Harbor we always return to the Shore Path Cottage. It is a magnificent bed and breakfast that offers comfortable rooms with amazing views overlooking Frenchman’s Bay. You are just steps from the shore path and it is only a short walk to restaurants and shops. The breakfast selection allows you the choice of a light granola...

I booked at this B&B because its location on the shore path (my spouse likes to jog in the morning) and its claim for healthy breakfast food. Our room occupied half of the top floor and had a beautiful view of the yard with the water in the background. The mattress and bedding were of excellent quality. Location was perfect,...

Lovely, warm, well furnished home in beautiful location. Grounds particularly nice with easy access to the Shorepath and Ocean. Breakfasts delicious. Hostess couldn't have been nicer. Would highly recommend the ShorePath Cottage.

We spent three nights in this pleasant old house which still feels like a home. It was comfortable and clean but needs some attention to brighten it up a little. We received a warm welcome and as much information and help as we needed about restaurants etc. Breakfasts were different each day and were generally good, including a hot dish,...

Nice place for a quiet stay. Bed extremely comfortable. Owner very nice and personable. Food ok, nothing fancy. Close to beach, beautiful views from dining area, sitting room and back yard. Price was very reasonable. Clean but needs a little bit of a design upgrade. Would definitely stay here again.

Lovely old home with a view. Great location with a view of the harbor from the rockers on the front porch and in walking distance to everything. Delicious breakfasts plus wine and chocolate chip cookies in the evening. Wonderful hospitality! Thank you, Lisbeth!

We chose this B&B as it was located close to the town and venue for a wedding we were in town for. It's in an amazing location to everything! And the view of the Bay is incredible. The hostess and her mother were very gracious and accommodating. The breakfast was wonderful and the room, very comfortable and very very clean!...

Stayed here with my family and felt we were intruding on the owners rather than a guest at their house. They weren't mean, just not overly friendly. Rooms were nice and clean, wonderful location with plenty of parking. Would not rush back to stay at this location.

“The rooms are named for the children who grew up in this enormous house by the ocean. Choose Peter's Room or Roberta's Room for views of Frenchman's Bay.”
