    Holbrook House in Bar Harbor, Maine

    Welcome to our home, where we offer DownHome Comfort and DownEast Charm in Bar Harbor, Maine.

    Eric and Michelle are delighted that you are looking at our home for your upcoming vacation.

    Built in 1876, our Victorian home was originally built as summer lodging for the wealthy looking to escape the heat of Boston and New York City. This house has had several reincarnations over it's life and has been summer apartments, a hostel and a nursing home. Spared from the devastating fire of 1947 that burned much of the National Park and the island this house was finally turned into a Bed & Breakfast in the early 1980's.

    Today, this home's wonderful accommodations and amenities make it the perfect setting for your Bar Harbor visit. Beautiful and elegant, comfortable and tranquil we work hard to create an relaxing adult atmosphere, an escape from the everyday. Leave your cares and worries behind and come stay with us and let our home be your home-base for a fun and exciting vacation for you and your partner. Our location is within walking distance to downtown but just far enough away from the hustle and bustle and so close to several entrances to Acadia National Park that you can drive, walk, or bike from our inn and be in the park in a matter or minutes. Whether you choose to spend the day in the National Park, shopping in downtown Bar Harbor, or sailing around the island on a cruise start your day off here at the Holbrook House with one of our hand crafted gourmet breakfasts. Oh, and don't forget to come back in the afternoon for Michelle's afternoon tea and fresh baked goods and homemade lemonade before heading out to dinner at one of Bar Harbor many gourmet restaurants.
