Within walking distance of downtown Bar Harbor, but tucked away from the whirlwind of activity there, Cleftstone Manor offers a welcome retreat for visitors to Acadia National Park. Built as a private mansion in 1881, the heart of the Gilded Age, it is now a bed and breakfast with lofty ceilings, heavy timbers, deep windows, ornate moldings, and elegant period furnishings to match. Step into the Cleftstone and step back to another era, but be assured of updated comforts.
Bar Harbor's Gilded Age was a time of opulence, when affluent New Yorkers and Bostonians summered here to see, be seen, and play against the picturesque backdrop of Mount Desert Island.
Now it’s your turn.
At Cleftstone Manor, we don’t just re-live the Gilded Age, we embody its spirit. We provide a luxury bed and breakfast experience with all the bells and whistles you deserve, including private bathrooms, generous breakfasts, and modern amenities like A/C, Wi-Fi, and TV. Join us.
