The restaurant has a beautiful view of the harbor, outdoor pool and rolling back lawn. The summer help were young college kids, so service was uneven. When my friend and I asked about the wireless password after we were seated, we were TD it was posted by the front desk by a young waiter who didn't stop walking away to... More

We were traveling through the New England states and made reservations at the Asticou Inn in Bar Harbor Maine. The pictures on the internet were beautiful but when we arrived what we saw was not what was pictured. We were told our room was in one of the houses across the street. The house was not air conditioned and had... More

This is a review of the restaurant. This is a lovely place to eat: the location is beautiful, and the food is tasty and excellent. For years, the folks running this restaurant held forth at the Jordan Pond House. They lost the contract there last year (not clear to me why), so they now offer their fine food at Asticou.... More

Okay -- it's high season, and this well-oiled machine is busy. But their strict adherence to 3 p.m. check-in (when we could see our room was ready) was annoying and left us lurking around the small porch to the main building for over an hour after we finished our (very disappointing) lunch. Our suite was in one of the outbuildings,... More

We just got back from a three night stay at the Asticou Inn. We had been once before and decided and suggested that our group of six stay here for the weekend. Everyone had a lovely time. The setting was perfect for cocktails and bocce on Friday night, followed by a lovely dinner on the porch. The staff was so... More

My husband and I recently stayed for 5 nights, and ate most breakfasts,a couple lunches, and a dinner in the restaurant.There is traffic noise, and we asked to change from our original room as it was close to the road. The staff was very accommodating.(especially Chris).At night we heard little traffic. The wifi is spotty and no cell service inside.The... More

I hate to leave such review since majority of the issues were related to poor team management. Lunch is served fr 11:00 am-5:00 pm. We went on Monday at 3 pm. The restaurant was at 20% capacity. We were seated right away and placed our order rather quickly (seafood chowder, salad sandwich and popovers). Then time stopped. After 20 min... More

The Asticou Inn has a very nice veranda for lunch. The food is reasonable and good and the Asticou group is famous for their popovers. Everyone wants popovers and tea or coffee, or with their meal. Service though, is slow and could be a lot better, but no complaints on the atmosphere.

My family enjoyed the comfort and relaxation of the Asticou. Great views and a special dinner on the deck as the sunset presenting a stunning change of scene. A touch of the old world was interesting for the boys to see, but the real hit for them was the pool!

We stayed 3 nights in the Cranberry Lodge for my sister's wedding. It was very pretty and we loved the old architecture. My extended family is large, so we rented out the entire set of rooms. However we were never told the staff lives in the rooms on the top floor. As we were all family and with the lodge... More
