Sit on your deck and watch the water. Or go out at night and be overwhelmed by the stars. The best part of the room is your own and very private deck. Downsides: 1) two king-sized beds in the room. One is usually enough, don't you think? 2) there's a cappuccino machine in the dining room, but the barrista shows... More

We stayed here on our New England road trip and found the hotel very modern, clean and with friendly staff. The hotel is set on top of a hill with stunning views over Bar Harbor and mountains. Unfortunately there was fog and rain both days so we never got to see the view. We would stay here again hoping that... More

We have been going to Bar Harbor every year for over 25 years and staying at the Bar Harbor Inn for the last 20 of those years. Spent the last week of June there this year. The staff is one of the many reasons this place is so special to us. Thank you Fred, Lois, Tyler and many others for... More

I conducted hours of research before settling on this hotel for the perfect vacation spot; and I nailed it! I was looking for luxury and more important, the ultimate view of the water. We stayed in the main part of the inn, with a water front room. I debated for a long time, whether to get the 2 story or... More

Our three-day stay at the Bar Harbor Inn was a delight. Although not on a budget, we chose to stay in the Newport Rooms and were not disappointed. The bathroom was roomy, the bed comfortable, and the sleeper sofa, although unused, was a comfortable place to read or watch TV. Breezes blew off the shaded small balcony outside our door... More

And like everything in bar harbor it was easy walking to all the sites etc. the grounds were very nice and parking was assigned by room which is nice. We did the B&B package, the breakfast was in...

The Bar Harbor Inn was beyond our expectations. Beautifully manicured property, spacious clean rooms, excellent food, pleasant and courteous staff. The views are out of this world. I can't wait to go again!

Breakfast was served overlooking the ocean, islands in view. The whole town of Bar Harbor was in walking distance and Acadia entrances were less than 5 miles. A+ on location. Price reflected a prime location and the rooms were fine, but nothing to brag about. The service was top notch and I'd recommend the hotel to any friends traveling that... More

We visit Bar Harbor / Acadia for one reason only: superb hiking. As far as accommodations, it's frankly rather slim pickings in this area. The Bar Harbor Inn is conveniently located, easy walking to town, restaurants etc. We had a room with ocean balcony / view -- but as privacy was nonexistent (you could hear people breathing on adjacent balconies)...

This was our second stay here and it was better than our first if that is even possible. The ambiance of this property and the service from the staff harks back to an earlier time when it was all about the guest. We can't say enough good things about the attentiveness of the staff. And the food! The Terrace Grill... More
