    We stayed at The Central House and were overjoyed with the entire experience. It is just off the main street in Bar Harbor and afforded us free parking so that we could enjoy Bar Harbor at our leisure by foot. The Bed & breakfast format...More

    Thank you so much for your review! (Replacement carpet's already been on order -- a matter of installer's schedule syncing with ours. We're also screening off the hearth -- stains are from soot, tracked in on kids' shoes, and can't shampoo out.)

    This place looked ok online, but once I arrived I was hugely disappointed! The home had good structure and bones but is in desperate need of a deep clean and upgrading. The carpets are dirty, the linens need to be replaced. If you are wanting...More
