We'll be back!

A perfectly delightful inn close to town and Acadia sights. Owners and staff friendly and more than accommodating. Breakfasts were great and afternoon tea and treats not to be missed. We'll be back.

Primrose Inn - a memorable experience.

Posted Oct 14, 2013
Pros: Friendly helpful staff, delicious breakfast and afternoon tea!
Cons: Hard to improve on perfection!
Location: Perfect location within walking distance of downtown Bar Harbor!
The Primrose Inn is just wonderful, a prefect resting spot on a long day at Acadia National Park. The owner provided information on what to see and do in Acadia. Since the park was technically closed during our stay, it was very helpful to know where we could park our car and walk into the various lakes, lookouts, etc. A truly memorable B&B.

Beautiful Inn, but not very restful

Posted Oct 9, 2013 on Hotels.com
I really, really would like to give this inn five stars. It is absolutely beautiful, our room was very spacious, with a separate sitting area in addition to the actual bedroom. Our hostess was very helpful in suggesting things to see and do, and many amenities are provided, e.g., flashlights for nighttime strolls, GPS units for use in sightseeing, e-readers with newspapers downloaded daily, the local paper delivered to your door early each morning, a refrigerator with drinks or for chilling your own wine bottles, snacks, DVDs to watch in your room, a delicious breakfast each morning. The location is perfect, just a few blocks from the waterfront and downtown shops and restaurants. The one drawback is noise. We were bothered by noise from the people in the room above us walking around loudly and apparently moving stuff around (suitcases? furniture?) until 11 PM and starting up again at 5 AM. both nights that we were there. We also heard snoring and voices from the room next to ours, although this was not as disruptive to our sleep and the stomping and thumping from upstairs. If you stay here, try to get a room upstairs. If not for this one issue, the Primrose Inn would get five stars from me easily.

Best hotel on our trip

Posted Oct 7, 2013 on Hotels.com
Professionally run with great attention to detail. The inn had a great atmosphere. Breakfasts and afternoon teas were excellent. DVDs to watch on the TV in your room. Rocking chairs on the veranda. Restaurants just a short walk into town.

Cons: Truly nothing.
Location: Acadia National Park, Bar Harbor and the surrounding coastline and the lobster.
If we could we would have given the Primrose 10 stars as the accomodation has everything and more. The rooms, the location, our host Melissa and her staff, the breakfasts were all superb. There were also lots of little extra touches that made it stand out from the ordinary and even the very good.refreshemnts on tap and free 24/7 and free. Sat Navs with points of interest already loaded and available free of charge we an excellent touch. The only downside was having to leave! But we will definitely be back and for longer. When we arrived the Acadia National Park was closed because of the US Government shut down but Melissa knew how we could still access many of the good parts and was very knowledgeable about this and the entire area. The breakfasts were tasty and inventive and set you up for the day. We cannot recommend the Primrose Inn more highly.

Quaint Victorian mansion converted to an Inn B&B.

Posted Oct 2, 2013
Pros: Friendly, helpful staff. A lot of tools ( like a free GPS for restaurants ). Free chilled water & soft drinks, DVDs & books on local attractions.
Cons: Firmer bed & lighter, warmer blankets
Location: Bar Harbor restaurants , harbor area, shops. Acadia National Park.
The staff were marvelous. This place really had its act together with amenities & service. Coffee & cold drinks & water available round the clock. Delicious breakfasts with a choice of two entrees. Really clean with modern facilities. Very convenient to Bar Harbor center. Our room had a nice separate "study" with two comfortable chairs & a table. My only quibbles were that the bed was too soft for my back and one of the blankets was made of thin cotton but weighed a ton on our bodies.

As close to perfect as you get

Posted Oct 1, 2013
Pros: Attention to detail to ensure every need was covered.
Cons: Maybe an extra table in the dinning room....we noted that a couple came for breakfast but all chairs were occupied
Location: The centre of town is within easy walking distance with shops and harbour
From checking in to leaving 3days later our stay was perfect.. The bedroom was very comfortable and it's the first time we have had a spray air freshened in the bathroom....handy if had a curry the night before !!!!!!! attention to such extras seems typical of this Inn. There was also a torch in the room in case we might need walking back at night. The location too is excellent being able to stroll into town. The breakfast differered each morning and was superb. Although there was wiFi there was also a computer AND printer available...every member of staff were cheerful and helpful....we would definitely stay again if we visited the area again.

We loved staying at the primrose inn. Friendly, individual style. Very comfortable and well furnished without being fussy. Different breakfast every morning and always a treat. Stay there - you will love it too!
