Chose this hotel for driving convenience to Acadia National Park. Everything was clean. There is indeed an entrance to the Park through the woods in back of this property, but the walk through the woods is definitely not a smooth path - I found it difficult to bring a bike in there and more difficult with young kids. There is... More

Thank you for this gracious review. Our staff works very hard keeping the rooms and grounds clean and well maintained - thank you for noticing. We have never had a request for vegetables during breakfast but this is an idea that I'm going to consider. We hope to see you again in the near future. More

Thank you for the warm review. As you mentioned some of the art in our lobby was provided by Rita Ziegler who paints mostly marine scenes with sailboats. It was a pleasure for us to help you with the sale and get you the painting you desired. More

So glad you had a nice stay. The pool was a little late getting open this year. Our winter never seemed to let up putting us a few days behind. It is open now, heated to 80 degrees and open until at least mid September. More

We stayed four nights in May and I have only good things to say about the place. The price was reasonable, the room was clean, the location was convenient and the staff were friendly and helpful. In addition at the edge of the upper parking lot there is a path that leads directly to the carriage road/bicycle path in the... More

I'm very grateful to this hotel for adding to my experience at Bar Harbor. The staff was friendly, the room clean and the breakfast amazing. I'm definitely considering Bar Harbor a regular vacation spot, especially since I know where I'd be staying!

Yes. Please come back. Acadia National Park and Mount Desert Island has so much to offer it takes many trips to see and do everything. We would be very happy to be your regular stop here and will do our best to continue to make your subsequent stays as pleasant as this first one. More

I went during the offseason so the free shuttle into Bar Harbor wasn't available and I took advantage of offseason rates. The room was large and I liked the way the motel was broken up into smaller four room units. The staff was courteous and very friendly. The motel was much nicer than expected.

Did you try the tree swings!? I personally swing for a few minutes everyday. It makes me feel young again and the feeling lasts well past after I hop off. We generally open the pool by the end of May and the playground and tree swings are available from the day we open. We're glad you had an enjoyable stay... More

We arrived into Bar Harbor with no reservations with the plan to just take a room with one of the Motels that were open during this off season visit.The first Motel we stopped at was asking prime season rates and I was sure I could get a lower rate easily since most hotels and motels looked like lots of rooms...

It's always a treat for me when traveling to "find" lodging on the fly that exceeds expectations. It's reassuring to know that other people also experience this buoyant feeling and very pleasing to know that it happens when guests find us. We are so glad you had a nice stay here and hopefully you "find" us again and again. More
