This is not the hotel to scrimp on paying for the view...... it was totally worth it! The Acadia Park area is so unique that looking out from our room was an amazing experience with every glance. We stayed in the oceanfront lodge, 1st floor. Room decor seemed updated, bathroom spacious, bed very comfy, loved the photo art work in... More

We visited the Bar Harbor Inn and Spa for our 33rd wedding anniversary in September 2013. The hotel came highly recommended by my sister who had stayed there ten years ago. I opted for a waterfront room with a king bed, nice balcony and fabulous views of the water. The staff could not have been nicer and they came in... More

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!

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.
