Graycote Inn - Bar Harbor Gay Friendly B&B

Step back into the Bar Harbor of a quieter era and be our guest at the historic Graycote Inn – we’re open year-round. Graycote was also the first green-certified lodging in Bar Harbor.

Sleep in one of our comfortable, spacious guest rooms, each with a king or queen bed – many with canopy – and private bath. Some of our guest rooms have a working wood-burning fireplace, sunroom, private sitting room, or balcony. We also offer free off-street parking – you don’t need to worry when a winter storm is on its way), and free wifi throughout the Graycote Inn.

Start your day with a tray of locally-roasted coffee just outside your room, then come down to a leisurely full, hot breakfast served to you at your table on the sunny enclosed porch spring through fall, or in the dining room before a cozy fire in winter. Our delicious breakfast is made from scratch each morning.

Enjoy afternoon refreshments on the veranda or in front of the living room fireplace. Play croquet on the lawn, or take a nap in one of the hammocks. Bar Harbor’s many restaurants, shops, and galleries are just a short walk away.

You’ll also be just a mile away from Acadia National Park, with sixty miles of car-free carriage roads, 120 miles of hiking trails, and some of the most majestic coastline in the State of Maine. The carriage roads become excellent cross-country ski trails in winter.

The Graycote is here to welcome you in any season, whether you wish to “do it all” in the great outdoors, or simply relax and recharge your batteries on the country’s most beautiful island.
