The inn is well maintained, the rooms are small, and the inn keeper is off her rocker. She believes Mount Desert Island was once Atlantis, which is fine. However, she will talk for 2 hours non-stop and took offense when I told her that we had plans for the day and needed to move on to breakfast. She then proceeded to lecture me on bed and breakfast etiquitte, then went on to insult us by essentially calling us uncaring people. Realizing this was not going to work, we were fortunately able to find much better accomodations at another bed and breakfast just up the road, which saved the rest of our vacation.
We stayed here for 2 nights and had a wonderful experience. The Inn was clean and colorful, and also included a great home-cooked breakfast each morning. It is within walking distance of everything worth seeing in quaint Bar Harbor. But what separated the Yankee Lady Inn from other motels is June, the host, who had incredible knowledge of Mount Desert Island, its geology, history, wildlife, tourism, etc. She is a former school teacher, and each morning between coffee and pancakes, she gave us an education on whatever we were planning to do that day. When we went whale watching, she gave us a briefing on the history of whaling in the region, and a few tips. When we hiked Acadia National Park, she provided us with a map and details of how to catch the bus, where to rent bikes, and what scenic spots she recommends. She was incrediby helpful and friendly.
