A truly memorable stay with Dax and Sarah at Inn at Bay Ledge. Their attention to detail is remarkable.... always ready with a smile and willingness to make their home feel like your own. The views from the porch are stunning. A lovely spot for enjoying the homemade breakfasts and afternoon tea with cookies. The location is ideal for trekkers of Acadia National Park and many local towns. Highly...See More

Great get away outside of Bar Harbor. The view and access to the bay are fantastic. We watched the sun rise, the moon rise, otters, a couple of dolphins, and a bald eagle which appears to have a nest next door. The inn is lovely. The grounds are great. Dax and Sarah are gracious hosts and breakfasts are yummy. What else could you ask for?

- Jonathan Lacefield

Absolutely beautiful place to stay! The views are unbeatable, the breakfast in the morning is SO GOOD, and its location is very convenient. Only minutes from downtown bar harbor and a quick drive to Acadia National Park. I will absolutely be staying here next time I visit. Dax and Sarah are incredibly kind and welcoming and their hard work to make the place beautiful does not go unrecognized!

What a lovely experience! Sarah and Dax were so welcoming and helpful. Breakfasts are home made and delicious. The view from the ledge is postcard worthy. Although our room was small it was comfortable. Comfy bed, great sheets and towels. We enjoyed a cold plunge and a sauna one morning. The location was so convenient for jumping in and out of Acadia National park which we did several times....See More
