We were lucky to score an accommodation with 2 bedrooms. It was amazing! Lots of room and the ocean view was breath taking. It's the end of the world (almost)! They offered a complimentary continental breakfast with an option to sit on the lawn and watch sunrise. We had dinner in the restaurant and it was really good. But, it... More

We stayed for 4 nights this July 2014. This was our sixth visit to the Inn in 15 years. Since we are coming from Michigan, it's quite a drive and we're looking for a great, relaxing visit and the Bar Harbor Inn has always delivered! This was the first time we traveled to Bar Harbor with our 2 children, ages... More

Spent a couple of very pleasant days there in early June. Expensive, but worth it! Great location, great property, excellent service from all on staff. We had a package that included our choice of a harbor cruise on a 4-masted schooner or a tour of Acadia National Park. We opted for the cruise. This was great, but light winds meant... More

Classic American hotel on the ocean beach. There are few buildings with comfortable and clean rooms, some of them with ocean view. The restaurant is the most lovely place there! Very nice interior, live piano music and great food (especially deserts!)

My son and his bride were married at the Bar Harbor Inn this July 2014. It was scheduled as a destination wedding. I can't say enough wonderful things about the accommodations, the staff, the food and most importantly Nicole and Kelly the event planners.There was nothing that was to difficult for them to accomplish. Nicole & Kelly were the best... More

A terrific property with above board class. Rooms are very comfortable. Exceptional views of the harbor and provided complete relaxation in a very serene environment. Close to some of the best food you can find in ME. Take the time to experience the great service and clean comfortable rooms. Don't forget to take in the exceptional views and the true... More

BHI spa has high standards and experienced therapists. Beautiful property and views; feels safe. Many added touches such as big fluffy robes, complimentary continental breakfast, tea/coffee, free wine tasting. Rooms are large, a bit darkly furnished. Pool is relatively small and always occupied by a lot of children, so adults rarely get the chance for a peaceful swim. Better that... More

This is the best hotel to spend vacation. The location is perfect, walk on the path along the water, relax at the foot of Frenchman's Bay or walk to town and the pier. Rooms are spacious, views are breathtaking, located near all the sites.

The location and the comfortable beds are the good things about this Inn. They messed up our reservation and gave us the wrong room. The room in the main building (harbor view) had an unpleasant smell that even my 9 year old noticed. Not worth getting the special package that includes food. The buffet breakfast included in the regular rate... More

This was our 7th year staying at the Bar Harbor Inn. This time, though, we had our 2 little ones along! The hotel has made some upgrades. We stayed in the Newport building, and we noticed newer carpets and bedding. Also, kudos to the really nice housekeeper who did our room every day. With 2 kids under 2, there were... More
