Bar Harbor
teapot Start your day

The choice is yours—sleep in and roll out of bed for a late brunch, bring coffee and a breakfast picnic to watch the sunrise on Cadillac Mountain, or try the many fabulous breakfast spots in Bar Harbor.

We offer a nice selection of complimentary coffees and teas (available around the clock) on our sun porch to help start your day. We do not include breakfast in our low room rates, as Central House guests enjoy the freedom to breakfast when and where they choose. Eat hearty or continental, early or late—there are excellent breakfast restaurants and bakeries just minutes from our door (seven on Cottage Street alone). Some guests prefer to get breakfast or provisions to go, to enjoy back here at Central House on our open air front porch, or on our sun porch with tables and chairs, ice maker, fridge and microwave.

Where to go after breakfast? Again, we can help out. At The Central House, the staff is friendly and courteous, and the innkeepers have a long history on Mount Desert Island and are happy to share their knowledge.

Ready for lunch? We suggest our sister restaurant, Geddy’s. Gourmet wood-fired pizza, awesome 1/2-pound burgers, lobster, steaks, a great bar, and the Down-Under Gift Shop.
