Beautiful views, go there for a drink before dinner. It's very, uh, rustic, no, ancient, no, traditional. Yes, traditional, with wooden floors and echos. It was clean, the staff were polite. Nothing to not like, especially in the context of the setting. I hadn't been to Bar Harbor before and probably won't return so, maybe all the places other than... More

What a lovely old inn. We had a suite with a kingsize bed with water views. Comfortable room with separate sitting room and a small balcony. Everything was clean, comfortable and lovely. We were only sorry we were only staying 2 nights.

Sunday Brunch is extraordinary...and for private dinner parties, this charming, picturesque New England hotel and restaurant is divine. A perfect place to stay and use as your "headquarters" when discovering Mt. Desert Island. Whether exploring NE Harbor, SW Harbor, and Bar Harbor...this is THE place to relax and unwind.

My wife and I decided to stay here as part of our 25th wedding anniversary trip through New England. We were not impressed with the touristy, crowded and noisy Bar Harbor area and wanted to find something quieter. We drove around the island and basically just stumbled upon this hotel. I checked the online reviews and noted that most (though... More

My room (No. 140) had a wonderful view over the property and the water. The room was clean and the bed comfortable. The staff were friendly. Breakfast in the restaurant, while not inexpensive, was extremely good (I had cod hash with poached eggs). The only downside is that the bathrooms were tiny; I could feel the toilet grazing the back... More

Thank you for staying with us and that great review. Truly the view from room 140 is unmatched. Unfortunately the builders did not appreciate bathroom size 100 years!, and this is a concern to both management and the owners. Actually, compared to the water view rooms, many of the road-side rooms are larger, as nicely appointed and have bigger bathrooms.... More

We appreciate your delightful review. For 130 years the Asticou has been situated in this perfect location. Over the years some things haven't changed: the dedication to excellent service, the superb dining experience and the allure of times long ago, as well as the thin walls. I agree that the water view suites have a nice view; sorry about passerby... More

After enjoying a beautiful day in Acadia National Park, we decided we would stay an extra day. We wanted to get out of Bar Harbor to some place quieter. The Asticou was perfect.

The Asticou is fantastically situated at the head of Northeast Harbor, which is fairly central on Mount Desert Island and well away from the hustle and bustle of touristy Bar Harbor. It is tranquil and a beautiful spot to sit and watch the sunset. Also, the Azalea Garden and nearby Thuya garden are significant enhancements to the hotel property. One... More
