Always a lovely stay at the Bluenose. The staff is courteous and helpful; the rooms are immaculate. Set on a hill, the views of the mountains are breathtaking should you choose to stay in a an outside room--pricier than expected given the type of hotel this is-- facing them in the main house. Don't pass by the tray of warm... More

My husband and I just visited this hotel for our 30th anniversary and it was well worth it! The views and hotel were beautiful and brought you back in time with all the Victorian touches but with all the amenities. The front desk clerk was a little overwhelmed when we arrived because she was answering the phone calls and handling... More

Thank you for your lovely review of our hotel, the Bluenose Inn. It sounds as though you had a wonderful stay and really enjoyed our restaurant The Looking Glass. A shame that we ran out of cookies for you. That doesn't happen often but as you probably learned during your stay, Columbus Day weekend is our busiest of the entire... More

We stayed at the Bluenose Inn after a lot of traveling and a bad experience at another hotel. Thankfully we happened upon this hotel. The staff was awesome. The view (partial) was beautiful! From the time we arrived, walked in to the lobby, and heard the calming, classical (live) piano playing--We were greeted and welcomed. It was clean, catered to... More

My wife and I have been visiting Bar Harbor more-or-less annually since 2001. We have always stayed at the Bluenose Inn and have never, ever, been disappointed. We look forward to the clean rooms, excellent service, breathtaking views, great food, and fine music of pianist Bill Trowell who performs nightly in The Great Room of the hotel. Jim Ash, the...

This was our seventh stay at the Bluenose, the third time staying in the magnificent Mizzentop 3rd floor suite. In the grand tradition of the finest hotels of Europe, the Bluenose takes you back in time to the classic hotels of days gone past. Breathtaking, panoramic views of Frenchman Bay and downtown Bar Harbor and the cruise ships, impeccable room... More

We have stayed at the Bluenose Inn on several occasions in the past and have always had a very pleasant experience. I was recently in Bar Harbor for a long weekend visiting family and visited the Great Room to listen to Bill at the piano. We thoroughly enjoy this and certainly did this time as well. My less favorable experience... More

Our fourth floor suite commanded great views of Frenchman's Bay. Everything we wanted was within our reach - big flatscreen tvs, gas fireplace, balcony, Keurig coffee maker, spa bathrobes, plus other things I may have forgotten. An easy walk to free shuttle service provided transportation to attractions without having to drive, park, etc. downtown. The indoor pool and spa area... More

An absolutely fabulous hotel situated overlooking the bay. Our room was in a balconied block with fantastic views. A slight problem with a faulty coffee machine was dealt with promptly by the friendly housekeeping staff. A beautifully decorated room; it was very comfortable & homey.
