What Past Guests Are Saying
Susan and Charlie
We recently stayed at Three Pines B&B; for the second time, and both experiences were top notch. The rooms are comfortable, with wonderful views of the water. And the breakfasts are second to none. We will be back.
My husband and I have spent years discovering the joy of B and B'ing. It has become a favorite way to see the communities where we visit. As of late my job has kept me away from our house on over-nites and I have made a choice to stay in B&B;'s whenever I can. I feel safer, I get to meet interesting people from all over the world and the food is usually much better than a local restaurant.
My recent stay at Three Pines was wonderful. The room was exceptionally clean and homey. The view of the bay second to none. Karen's breakfast was well balanced and delicious...and the coffee superb! I didn't want to leave...and I can't wait to go back.
If you are considering a B&B; in the Ellsworth/Bar Harbor area - look no farther. It is simply prefect!
Beautiful area, wonderful accomodations and the best food!
Three Pines is such a wonderful, eco- and animal friendly place to stay! Advertised as vegetarian, the hostess was more than willing to accomodate our vegan needs with homemade (and delicious) vegan breakfasts! All vegetarian who are visiting Maine should make this a must-stay destination.
Our stay left us feeling not only rejuvenated, but inspired.
While trying to decide among our many options in the area of acadia National Park, we were fortunate enough to stumble upon a listing for this gem. The prospect of staying on an off-the-grid, eco-friendly farm was at once exciting and concerning. While we were excited at the prospect of staying someplace sustainable (and affordable to boot!), we were initially nervous about some of the modern amenities, however those concerns turned out to be totally unfounded.
First and foremost, the service was absolutely out of this world. Karen was incredibly friendly, unbelievably helpful (especially in terms of navigating to acadia and suggesting places to go), and went above and beyond to make sure that we were comfortable. My partner is a very enthusiastic fiber-artist, and was absolutely thrilled when Karen introduced us to her herd of 20+ sheep (and Spot the Llama)! Our two Breakfasts were absolutely outstanding and included what have to be the best pancakes I've ever had.
You certainly won't be "roughing it" in either of the two rooms. The hot water is plenty hot (and available almost immediately), the beds are exceptionally comfortable, and if it gets cold, the propane heaters are more than adequate to keep you comfortable. I had to take a star off due to the fact that I am a fairly light sleeper and was woken up several times on account of our less-than-considerate upstairs neighbors (other guests). There isn't much sound insulation between the two units, so I'd recommend bringing ear plugs or some source of white-noise if you're a light sleeper (or just make sure to rent the upper floor).
The location is absolutely stunning as well, and I took many pictures of our beautiful sunrises over the water. Nevertheless, if you visit after tourist season (mid-October or so), you may find a lot of closed businesses, and there are closer B&Bs;/Hotels/Motels to acadia, so it isn't exactly ideal.
Overall this is a one-of-a-kind B&B; that needs to be seen to be believed!

Lovely Bed and Breakfast
Three Pines B and B is one of the loveliest B&B;'s my husband and I have ever stayed. Our visit was for one night only but very nice. The accomodations were great. The lovely hostess, Karen Curtis, greeted us at the door and showed us our spacious guest room and private bath filled with books, Cd's, magazines for our reading pleasure. The room overlooked Sullivan Bay, a tranquil sight. Breakfast was served in the main house, a few steps away. Karen's breakfast was delicious. Her cranberry bread receives a plus. The location is just off highway 1, a good spot for requenting Bar Harbor, Acadia, Schoodic Point but out of the rush of other tourists. My husband and I would definitely recommend Three Pines to anyone visitng and staying in this region.

Quiet Paradise in Busy Coastal Maine
Don't let the sheep and off-the-grid living scare you away! We chose this place because it looked interesting and unique and loved every minute of it! The location is quiet, right on the water and not too far off the main road. Karen was welcoming and charming, and we had fun meeting their cats and dog and chickens (who laid the best-tasting eggs!). The rooms are private, good size, each with a beautiful sunrise view of the water. If we ever get back to Maine, we'll make it a point to stay here again. It's one of those places that warms your heart!
A B&B; stay with much more to offer
The Stay at Three Pines was much more then we expected from a B&B.; It gave us a well located home base for visiting Bar Harbor, Acadia NP and local places of interest taking advantage of directions and maps from Karen. The organic breakfast served outdoors was a great experience with the beautiful grounds and views of the cove. What really impressed us the total experience with the owners, facilitiies, farm, animals, location, and especically Karen and her pug Miss Magoo. A truly memorable stay in the beautiful state of Maine.
Mike and Wynette
Karen, You made our stay at your beautiful B&B; just perfect. Our guys really enjoyed the views of the Harbor and took several scenic photos there. Breakfast was another treat. Very delicious and healthy! Our rooms were very clean and cheery with great views! Loved talking to your animals as we left each day. Most of all appreciated your hospitality and the valuable information you shared with us about our trip to acadia and the area. Hope some day we will be back up your way. For now, thanks from Georgia.
Three Pines B&B; - Splendid
I recommend that you stay longer than one night. Since the scenery, rooms, breakfast, and potential for participating in local activities are so great, extend your stay at Three Pines to 3 or 4 days. Karen is a remarkably helpful hostess and an excellent cook. (Each breakfast was unique, creative, healthful, and delicious!)
John & Carol Dunn
Just a wonderful location with lots of privacy in a very unique location with breath taking views and a feeling of serenity. We have already recommended it to a couple of friends.
I would come again and look forward to it.
The B&B; is the end of a very long dirt driveway, which ushers you to a place away. The units are cleverly oriented to catch the maximum breeze from the water with good cross-ventilation. The view on the water side is gorgeous--just beautiful trees, water, and sky to look at. A short path to the water's edge invites sitting on an adirondack-style bench or dangling one's feet in the clear water while sitting on a choice of flat rocks. After a day at a stuffy conference room, I didn't want to move, although the heightening tide did encourage me to do so. Breakfasts are sumptuous, made with all home-grown ingredients from their farm, and eaten on a sort of breezeway porch to maximize the view. (If you're lucky, you may be treated to some gooseberry jam.) Karen herself was the perfect hostess. The second-floor room we stayed in was cozy without being cutesy and very clean. We had a great stay.
Our favorite B
This lovely B&B; is part of an off-the-grid farm in a quiet area of great natural beauty not far from acadia National Park. Our second-floor room had a great big gorgeous view of the cove and we watched the sun rise in the morning both from our room and from the water's edge down a little path behind the house. Our host, Karen Curtis, provided us with glorious breakfasts which she prepared with their organically grown vegetables and wild blueberries, freshly-collected hen and duck eggs, and wonderful stove-top coffeepot coffee. We loved eating at little tables in the breezeway. Our immaculate room had a star-shaped ceiling that we loved to watch as the light changed and shadows drifted from one surface to another. We chose this B&B; in good part because of the owners' dedication to the environment - and found them to be caring and upbeat custodians of their beautiful land, animals, and solar-powered home. Karen is genuinely interested in her guests and we found her so enjoyable to talk with that we hung around a bit later in the mornings than usual on a hiking vacation! This B&B; is about 30 minutes northeast of acadia National Park, but is quite easy to find even after dark, and is a great location for exploring the quieter reaches of Downeast Maine as well as acadia N.P. I cannot speak too highly of this very special B&B.; We will be back as soon as we can!
Great experience on off-the-grid B
Only two units, so very personal service. Great breakfast (eggs from chickens on the premises) and very clean rooms. Nice quiet place to sit by the bay. Beautiful, quiet location.
A One Night Stay
This was lovely! We only stayed one night but were given wonderful service and a lovely room to stay in. It was seriously an absolutely great experience for our first time to Maine. The breakfast was delicious and everything tasted super fresh. If we ever return to the Hancock, me area, this would definitely be top on our list to stay!!

Impeccable service in an outstanding location
We have already begun recommending Three Pines to our friends. We spent two nights there in the 2nd floor bedroom overlooking the bay. We had beautiful clear nights and the room was cozy. The site is far enough away from the tourist buzz that it felt like our own little sanctuary from the busy-ness of places like acadia and Bar Harbor. If you're looking for a place where you can remember what quiet is and enjoy a very relaxing stay with outstanding farm-raised vegetarian breakfasts, you won't regret staying here. Karen (the proprietor) is infinitely knowledgeable about the surrounding area and was tremendously helpful to us as we planned our time there. I would recommend Three Pines to anyone interested in staying in this area.
We are just getting home from our stay at Three Pines and are already planning our next visit there. From Karen's warm welcome, to the beautiful view, the wealth of information about the area and the quiet every moment was perfect. We are still thinking about the amazing breakfast every morning;
Ed's homemade yogurt with fresh fruit and granola, the delicious pancakes, home baked blueberry muffins and coffee... what a feast every day! This is the best place we have ever stayed, barring none! Great big thanks to Ed and Karen Curtis for a wonderful retreat.
Beautiful location, great hosts
My husband and I spent two nights at Three Pines in late July. The room was clean and comfortable, the location is perfect for exploring acadia and Downeast Maine. It was a special treat to meet the farm animals and enjoy access to the shore. Karen and our fellow guests were friendly and gave us great travel tips. And the breakfasts were healthy and delicious. Thank you!

Wonderful place to explore and very hospitable!
We particularly loved going out on the bay with the kayak provided. Seeing the loons and a harbor seal swimming near us was all that I had hoped for and a total gift as we had not known of the tandem kayak being available.
We enjoyed the Monday night steel band concert at Tidal Falls Preserve, and even walking home under the stars afterwards. It was a magical stay.
I would warn any light sleepers to not stay in the downstairs room as the beautiful wood floors do not dampen the sounds. Thankfully our co-guests were quiet, but sound travels with toilets flushing, showers and going up and down the stairs etc. We would love to return . . . but we would ask for the upstairs room. We both thought it would be OK if it were our own family upstairs though. Go figure.
As a romantic place? yes . . . great breakfasts on the deck, movies to see at night- but again if you were the only guests staying there (because privacy even upstairs might be an issue for some).
We loved it.
Three Pines B&B; stay
We had a great stay. The room was very nice and clean. We stayed in the upstairs room. The view of the bay and the sunrise was great and it was very quiet for sleeping. Karen served us an excellent breakfast on both days of our stay and we enjoyed talking to her about the farm and her solar home.
Couldn't have been happier
My girlfriend (now fiance) and I spent three nights at Three Pines in July of 2012. She volunteers at an organic, biodynamic farm so I knew she would love the farmhouse atmosphere depicted in the photos. Simply put, we had a great time here. Fantastic, fresh breakfast served when we wanted it, and Karen was a great source of information and suggestions for where to go and what to do. If you're looking for something other than a typical B&B; and want to support people farming and living as environmentally responsible as they possibly can, definitely check out Three Pines.
A wonderful respite from a busy and intrusive world
We returned this year after our first visit last year. What a lovely place and hostess. The location is great, with lots to learn about farming, sustainability, and the area. What could be better than looking across to Cadillac Mountain? The room was spacious, solar heated water was hot, and hostess most accommodating. The breakfasts are to die for, especially since Karen asks what it is that you prefer and then cooks it. Who knew that broccoli is ready to harvest to have with eggs at breakfast in June? And the blueberry pancakes are not to be missed (nearby is the blueberry capital of Maine). Best of all is the love shown for our Labrador retriever, Coal, that travelled with us, and made friend with the owner's pug, Ms. Magoo! Can't wait to go back again for a weekend next year.
Lovely host--wonderful food, beautiful view, great value. I will be back.

our little get-away
My husband and I enjoyed two peaceful nights at 3 Pines B&B.; Karen's cooking talents were well appreciated. Almost everything was home grown and made, right down to the fresh fruit, vegetables eggs and yogurt. We even found the civil war headstone that is on the property. Karen gave us directions to great restaurants and enjoyable places to visit. Both she and Ed were the best hosts. If you want an impeccably clean Bed and Breakfast, and restful vacation, then take the drive to Maine and to 3 Pines Bed and Breakfast and Farm.
Lover of Three Pines B&B and its animals
A marvelous vacation stay !
This is the most magnificent place to stay for comfort, friendliness, beautiful views and so very much more. The Curtises are wonderful hosts and the animals/birds are an extra bonus. Breakfasts are scrumptious. Since we have returned almost annually since 2004 - can we give a better recommendation?
