This was my third time staying at Bar Harbor Inn. I stayed in the main older Inn section. Nice spacious room with a nice view of the harbor. Staff is very friendly. Even upon departure around 5 am in the morning, fresh coffee was available. The Inn is within easy walking distance of the entire downtown area of Bar Harbor.... More

Our room faced the ocean--great views! This is in a great location, close to shopping and restaurants. There is a short walking area in front of the inn. Even though it is an older inn, it is well maintained. The one day it was raining and we had wine in the circular covered porch and just watched the ocean waves.... More

This is a charming, well maintained inn in the heart of Bar Harbor, yet with beautiful grounds, on the bay itself. The room was large and quiet, with comfortable beds and bathroom, and a veranda overlooking the water. A path a few dozen yards in front of the veranda passes along the waterfront for half a mile or so, and... More

This was our 4th time here in Bar Harbor and we still haven't done all there is to do here. This hotel is in a great location. Close to shops, restaurants and the water all within a short walk. There are many activities to keep you busy and many wonderful sights to see. You can be as active or lazy... More

We visited Bar Harbor in the middle of November 2014, hoping to get some alone time on Acadia's many trails and to see the town without the thousands of tourists who fill it up during the summer. We definitely got what we wished for. During the month of November almost all of Bar Harbor's tourist shops were closed and many... More

Almost everything about my stay here during Columbus Day weekend was wonderful. Booking was easy and quick, and we had warned them of a late arrival, as we were traveling a straight 8 hours from Long Island...boy, that was an experience in itself! When we arrived at 2:45 AM with little rest and straight from work, I'm sure we would... More

The hotel was fabulous! We enjoyed every minute of our stay. The location is superb and very close to many points of interest, restaurants and shops. The staff was very gracious and the room layout afforded us both garden views and bay views with a balcony. I would definitely recommend this hotel for anyone looking for a nice stay while... More

We had reserved a room for Thanksgiving night but had to delay our arrival by a day because of bad weather. There was no penalty involved and the reservations staff graciously and efficiently handled the change. The windows of Room 207 (on the second floor of the main building) provide a sweeping, unobstructed view of the harbor and, from the... More

Went to Maine via car for a vacation in November of 2013. We travelled along the coast through various towns and villages and eventually came to Bar Harbor Maine which was very nice. We stayed at the Bar Harbor Inn for three nights during their "Autumn Finale Package Deal". It was well worth every penny. We got to eat an... More

Nice spot, convenient location, great guest services, spa onsite with hot tub and pool, The Reading Room restaurant is amazing - by far the best food in Bar Harbor and we go a few times a year. The room had a comfortable bed, was quiet and everything was first class. Love the walking trails that connect to the Inn.
