What an amazing hotel!! We stayed in a oceanview room and it was so beautiful. The most peaceful place I've ever stayed. The hotel is pricey and the rooms are dated but they more than make up for it with their quaint charm of days gone by. The complimentary breakfast buffet is very good with ocean views. I can't wait... More

My husband and I booked a last minute trip to BH mid April. We had never been to BH so we used trip advisor to help (per usual!) The BH inn is in the perfect location! We had an oceanfront room that was comfortable and clean and the view was gorgeous! We hiked Acadia one day, walked out on the... More

It was out of season when we went and a little rainy and cold on our first day. We had an ocean view room in the lodges which was perfectly pleasant although i never managed to work out how to use the coffee machine. The food in the restaurant is on the more expensive side but very good quality and... More

Stayed one night in room 503 facing the ocean in some dreary April weather. Highlight was Melissa's assistance with some of my business matters as she juggled many tasks simultaneously. Opted for a la carte breakfast in formal ding room. Breakfast staff friendly but annoying loud exchanging stories about their tips within earshot. Asked for two poached eggs and got... More

Just stayed at the Inn in early April, only a few weeks after they opened. Quiet time of year to visit. The staff was very helpful, the room comfortable with a great view, and the continental breakfast was very complete. When we visit Acadia next, we'll be staying here.

My wife and I spend our anniversary every year at the Bar Harbor Inn. I love the location, the staff, and the rooms. It's all the little things that make it great. Every year they welcome me back when I check in. The staff has very little turnover which I think speaks volumes about the quality of the place.

I was visiting family and stayed at the Bar Harbor Inn for 3 days. Even in the Spring, they welcome guests with a friendly smile and great service. They upgraded my stay to the ocean view side of the complex. They offer a great breakfast from 7 am - 11am. It is included in the Spring price. They had fresh... More

In planning a trip to Acadia NP, I found the Bar Harbor Inn here on TripAdvisor. We stayed two nights in what turns out to be the off-season. We stayed in the main building and the rooms were comfortable and quite. All staff we encountered were friendly and helpful. We were pleasantly surprised to learn they offer a free continental...
