    About Us

    Comprehensively updated for the 2020 season, The Primrose (c. 1878) offers guests an idyllic, historic Maine Cottage Style experience without any sacrifice in modern comfort or amenities. Our downtown Bar Harbor property is perfectly located in the historic Mount Desert Street Corridor, a mere 1,500 feet from Bar Harbor's Main Street and the free Island Explorer Shuttle, and just 1 mile from Acadia National Park. Walk to all of Bar Harbor's shops, restaurants, and the waterfront in a matter of minutes! The Primrose features 15 spacious guest rooms all with private bathrooms, luxurious linens, air conditioning, smart TVs with Netflix capability, and free wireless internet. Many rooms feature gas fireplaces, spa tubs, and private porches. Each room has been individually decorated in consultation with Ethan Allen's local design center, and original fine artwork from our favorite Maine galleries is displayed throughout the property. Guests will enjoy not only a complimentary full breakfast, but also our popular Afternoon Refreshments with freshly baked goods from our own kitchen. Free parking, smoke-free, and pet-free. Open mid-April to mid-November. Truly the finest boutique lodging experience in Bar Harbor. Give us as a call anytime at 207-288-4031, we look forward to hearing from you!
