Matt and Kristi, the hosts/owners are very gracious and accommodating. The inn is lovely and in a great location. Waterfront property with beautiful sunset views and access to Bridge Street/ Bar Island. Air conditioning and free parking. The homemade breakfasts are out of this world!

Our children know we love to travel and this was a Christmas gift. We spent 4 nights here and loved Matt and Kristy! They make you feel very welcome! The room was beautiful and clean and very comfortable! Being on the water enjoying a wonderful breakfast was amazing! Would love to come back sometime!

My fiancé and I sadly only had one night at Saltair Inn, but we will be back for sure. Matt and Kristi were excellent hosts and made us feel right at home. The Inn itself is beautiful on the water, with plenty of outdoor seating to enjoy the views. You can walk from the backyard of the Inn over to Bar Harbor Island at low tide, which is very cool. It's only a 5-7 minute walk to dinner downtown. The location couldn't be better and the customer service was very impressive. We stayed in the first floor suite, which had a cool rain shower and jet bath. The suite also had gorgeous sunset views. Would highly recommend this suite. In the morning Kristi made blueberry stuffed French toast, sausage and a tasty smoothie. All were very good!! Thanks Matt & Kristi! Sorry we didn't get to say goodbye today. Can't wait to come back in the Fall.

Saltair was the first stop on our Maine vacation. We traveled with friends and stayed on the 2nd floor with the two rooms that share the 2nd floor balcony. The sunset and the view from The Saltair was breathtaking. The rooms were very nice, large with a bonus sitting room. Breakfast each morning was fabulous. The location is an easy walking distance to the main area of Bar Harbor but nestled on a quiet waterfront street. Perfection! We will return to this lovely Inn

Totally, hands down, without a doubt, the best inn we've ever stayed in. Matt and Kristi know everything about the island, make outrageous breakfasts, are super friendly, and will make your stay memorable. The inn is super close to the town, which saves you from trying to find a parking space, and the rooms are clean, comfy, and spacious. There's an amazing view off the rear of the property, and it's a stone's throw from the path to Bar Island. The inn is right off Rte 3, so you're also wicked close to there Acadia Park. The Saltair Inn is the place to be.
