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.

Great service and perfect location right on the water. Was here in late fall and the weather was getting very cold. The hotel upgraded me to a kingsize ocean view room at no charge. Very happy with the staff and the service. Would stay again

We had a very small and very private wedding ceremony at the inn. Our room was so lovely -- with its own double balcony, we were able to have it outside on the porch. I want to say that what made the stay outstanding besides the view and the physical and aesthetic beauty of the area, was all the details... More

For the last three years we have traveled to Bar Harbor for the PJ parade weekend. Our stay here is delightful . Our room overlooks the water and we are close to the walking path that takes us into town. The continental breakfast is first class and the meal in the Reading Room is just as good. Already looking forward... More

Our stay here was the icing on the cake at the end of our Maine trip. The service was outstanding, the location absolutely everything we wanted to experience and the grounds beautiful. They were busy but we never had to wait for service or information. The shore walk was so fun and beautiful. The first night our room was in... More

Stayed 2 nights as part of a New England tour. The room was fantastic facing out onto the bay. Not the biggest room but more than adequate. Food was good, us having the buffet breakfast in the block we were staying in, and eating in the restaurant on one other night, The service appeared a little rushed and frenetic but... More
