We stayed at the Bar Harbor Inn for an early March high school basketball tournament, not exactly the best time of year to visit Maine. Despite this being a weekend for local families attending a sports event, the staff at the Bar Harbor Inn treated us like royalty. They were friendly, attentive and helpful in every way.

Beautiful location, in town but also private, with close connections to Acadia Nat'l Park. I originally chose this from the web but after having gone to Bar Harbor and seen the selection, I wouldn't stay anywhere else.

We have been going to the Inn 3 times a year for the past 15 years and can't wait to go back. The service is top notch and they make you feel like family. The views are amazing and the rooms are excellent. All this within walking distance to town.
