The Bar Harbor Grand Hotel is a well managed, clean hotel. The staff goes out of their way to make your stay enjoyable. The hotel is located close to town but not in the middle of all the noise associated with an active area. The hotel has a large front porch with ample seating to enjoy a cup of lemonade... More
