A destination in itself.
The Coach Stop Inn, a bed and breakfast, was built around 1804 and is the oldest lodging establishment in Bar Harbor. Filled with historic details and managed with a youthful spirit, the Coach Stop lets you enjoy the way it was, from the comfortable vantage of the way it is. Chef-owned and operated, the three-course gourmet breakfasts will be as large a part of travel memories as the beauty of Mount Desert Island. The Inn is surrounded by fields, old apple trees and beautiful gardens, and is a convenient hub for all that Mount Desert Island and Acadia National Park have to offer.
Called the Halfway Tavern, the Inn was virtually the only housing readily available to the sailors and adventurers traveling the wild northern reaches of New England. The main structure’s colonial style mirrors the architecture of many antique dwellings and taverns on Cape Cod. Ceiling beams, fireplaces and much of the building’s architecture remain intact.
Today the Coach Stop Inn continues to offer hospitality to travelers. Comfortable queen beds, crisp linens, and immaculate private baths assure all the modern conveniences, while losing none of the personality and history of the Inn’s early days.
