Beautiful Hotel Great LocationPosted Aug 22, 2017
We were pleasantly surprised when we checked in to the Primrose. The Hotel is historic, 1800s, but has been meticulously refurbished & maintained. Every detail was attended to including free water and soda and snacks. Melissa is a great Inn Keeper! The breakfast daily was well Prepared and delicious! They serve tea in the afternoon. The Inn is centrally located so you can walk to town and drive to Acadia National Park.

The perfect place to stay!Posted Aug 17, 2017
My husband and I could not have had a more enjoyable stay. Melissa and her staff are most hospitable, professional, and eager to help make a vacation fantastic. Close to EVERYTHING, delicious food, cute, comfortable room, great bed! So sad we could not stay longer!

Charming place to stay in Bar HarborPosted Aug 9, 2017
Pros: Personal service. Charming decor. Location.
Cons: Not much.
Location: Main street of Bar Harbor is close by. All the shopping, restaurants and beautiful scenery is just a few blocks away.
The Primrose Inn was absolutely a perfect choice for our visit to Bar Harbor. We arrived late, but pulled in to our designated parking spot. No valet or fighting for a parking spot. We were warmly greeted and taken on a tour of the Inn. Every detail has been thought of to make your stay here as pleasant as possible. We were just a short stroll to the shops and restaurants so the location was excellent. There are so many little touches and attention to detail, that it's hard to list them all. The most outstanding thing may have been the friendliness and helpfulness of everyone we met associated with Primrose Inn. They did their best to make us feel comfortable and at home. The morning breakfast and afternoon tea were both tasty and it was nice having a fridge with cold water for the guests. Our room had a private porch so we were able to sip our morning coffee in a rocker just outside our room. Overall, our visit was wonderful and just too short.

Amazing B&B ExperiencePosted May 31, 2017
Cons: I understand the In is for sale. I hope they are able to continue to run it or that the future new owners keep the same standards and staff.
Location: We enjoyed the Inn just as much we enjoyed our time at the Acadia Park and downtown Bar Harbor. We never used the car in town, walked everywhere.
Primrose Inn was one of the highlights of my trip to Acadia this past Memorial day weekend. Melissa (the Inn keeper) emailed me a week in advance to confirm the booking. I had the change to confirm that it would be 3 of us (girls weekend) and that we would be doing a late check-in. From the moment we arrived we were impressed that the property is impeccable: designated parking, beautiful garden, adorable décor in and out, very clean, neat and charming common areas (lobby, living room and hallways). The bedroom and bathroom were also in perfect state - double points to the bedding!!! Throughout our 3 night stay, the experience just got better: delicious breakfast, friendly staff and tea time was just an adorable touch to our days. The only issue we had, we caused it: we turned on too many hair appliances at once and the power went out. They fixed it within 5 minutes. Everything is from a walking distance! Definitely coming back!
