Town Pier in  Bar Harbor Maine


Welcome to our home...where we offer DownHome Comfort and DownEast Charm

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 its life and has been summer apartments, a hostel and a nursing home. Spared from the devastating fire of 1947 that burned much of Acadia National Park and Bar Harbor, 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 a 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 traveling companion. Our location is within walking distance to downtown but just far enough away from the hustle and bustle. Our house is 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 of 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 breakfasts. Oh, and don't forget to come back in the afternoon for Michelle's afternoon refreshments with fresh baked goods before heading out to dinner at one of Bar Harbor many restaurants. 


Choose from one of our nine delightfully appointed guest rooms, two luxury suites or two 2-bed suites. All have private baths, AC, and Wi-Fi. Looking for a room with a fireplaces or private decks? We've got the room just for you. Girlfriends weekend? Traveling with friends? We've got just the suite for you.
