Bar Harbor Bed and Breakfast: Coach Stop Inn


“Best of All B & B's!”
April, 2017

The Coach Stop Inn is perfect from the start! Upon arrival, Anna is out to greet you. She made us feel so welcome, immediately inviting us in and giving us the most informative tour. Not only of our rooms, but of the history of the old Stage Coach stop and Tavern this wonderful place used to be! 

Our rooms were warm and cozy, clean and neat, stocked with anything and everything you could think of that you may need. The house is decorated so beautiful, inside and out. The Breakfast is delicious and top of the line!

We have traveled and stayed in Bed & Breakfasts before, even in Ireland, known for their B & B's! But, Anna and Jim, and their home, The Coach Stop Inn, far outweigh even the best in Ireland. The hospitality, effort and care they work so hard to offer to each and every one of their customers, is priceless and unbeatable! 

Do not hesitate to stay in the Coach Stop Inn! You will not want to leave!

“Perfect Winter Getaway”
April, 2017

We stayed at the Coach Stop Inn for two night during our school's February vacation. We took the Tavern Room (Small Suite with Fireplace) at the Off-Season Rate of $125 per night including a wonderful breakfast.

Anne met us (we were a little early), gave a tour of the Inn, and showed us to our room. Cold sodas, hot drinks are out 24 hours a day and treats are available at tea time. The room was great and temperature control was in our hands. There is a very comfortable sitting room with plenty of books (both quality fiction and non-fiction) and a fireplace so that you can sit and chat, or quietly read.

The food (in chronological order): Afternoon Day 1: Peanut Butter/Chocolate Bars were great, I think that she left out 6 bars for us to share. Breakfast Day 2: Warmed Grapefruit with Brown Suger (Great) followed by Eggs Benedict (Fantastic). Afternoon Day 2: Triple Chocolate Cake (2 pieces each)--Lots of Chocolate, but not too heavy or bitter. Breakfast Day 3: Orange and Blood Orange slices, with Pistachio nuts followed by Light, Fluffy Pancakes on a pool of blueberry compote (Again, Fantastic).

We love Acadia and did about 2 hours of Snowshoeing each day. The trails are generally in very good shape during February break and we were able to get to a great lookout from both the Door South Ridge Trail and from Schooner Head. Since we did one trip to Acadia each day, the Coach Stop Inn was a great base of operations.

“Honeymoon in a Blizzard”
March, 2017

Want to get married? If yes, we suggest you spend your honeymoon at the Coach Stop B&B. 

Jim and Anna are the perfect hosts. In spite of a 16" snow fall which we loved because we spent several days skiing and hiking at Arcadia National Park, Jim had the driveway plowed as well as the walk. 

But, more importantly we have never been served such sumptuous breakfast at any Inn . This is not a "continental" breakfast, it is a movable feast. A different menu every morning ranging from the sweet to the savory and served with the enthusiasm and passion of true chefs. 

What better place to enjoy Maine in the winter than with Jim and Anna and their kitchen.

“Quaint & Cozy Stay over New Years”
January, 2017

We had a lovely stay with Jim and Anna at Coach Stop over New Years. I really enjoy visiting Mount Desert Island during the winter - it's far less crowded and affords opportunities to see wildlife that is tougher in the summer. 

The Acadia Suite had a huge tub, comfortable bed, and nice little working area (if you absolutely must work during your holiday). Our hosts brought us Champagne for New Years which was a lovely touch! 

I've stayed at a couple places on MDI - we'll be back to Coach Stop for sure!
