A modest home tucked away on a side street in a row of Bar Harbor B&Bs, the Maples is an easy walk downtown to a movie or dinner. The current innkeepers, who took over the place in 2015, are an outdoorsy young couple, and the inn tends to attract other adventuresome types; find them swapping stories about their day’s exploits on the handsome front porch or lingering over breakfast to compare notes about hiking trails. Rooms are small to medium-size, but you’re not likely to feel cramped—they have private bathrooms, wicker furniture, pencil poster beds, and handsome antique wooden writing desks. The two-room White Birch has a fireplace, a lacy canopy bed with a down comforter, and a bright blue-and-white decor; Red Oak has a private deck with rocking chairs. Gourmet breakfasts are served in a sunny dining room or taken on the porch; Chef Matt is big on local ingredients, even smoking his own trout.
