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....

We stayed at the Town Motel August 2011. Very pleasant. Location is in heart of Bar Harbor but off of main streets and several blocks from water front. Quite, comfortable, and functional. Also close to shopping and restaurants. i have never rated a motel on Trip Advisor before but found this experience positive enough to write a review. Room was...

We wanted to stay in the inn; however, it was booked, so we stayed in the motel. It is clean (always my main concern) to my standard, and a gracious lady at the inn's front desk provided us with a c.d. and guidebook to borrow to tour Acadia Forest. Although it's not on the harbor, it's conveniently located (2nd on...

Stayed in the town motel with my boyfriend, mom and sister had a separate room in the same motel. Very nice and comfortable and the staff is friendly. The location is perfect: right in the town and close to all the shops and restaurants.

Loved it here - great location, very close to everything but not on the main street, so it felt quiet and peaceful. We had a beautiful room with a king bed and a double bed, perfect for my family of 4, and even with 2 little boys, we felt welcomed. The owners were warm and friendly, the breakfasts were outstanding,...

While I have been to Bar Harbor for the past 15 years, this was our very first time staying at the Moseley Cottage Inn and was I suprised. This place has the best beds for sleeping that any of the other 15 locations I have stayed at. The service provided is unheard of in today's economy, especially in Bar Harbor...

This is the fourth year we've stayed at the Moseley Cottage Inn and Town Motel and as usual we were not disappointed. The yard and hotel are beautifully maintained. As a avid home gardener this is important to me. The rooms are spotlessly clean and quite comfortable. The staff is friendly and ready to help. We encountered very heavy rain...

We stayed in the main building and had a lovely, private room (Strath Eden). The staff were extremely pleasant and made you feel very welcome. The breakfast was tasty and very well presented and also served with a smile which is always a bonus. The location within this pretty town was perfect. The decor is perhaps a little tired but...
