I live in the deep south, but have family in Maine and look forward to a short trip to Bar Harbor every time I come up to visit. I've stayed at the Bluenose Inn three times now in two years, twice with my husband and once with my son. Each time, the experience has been very pleasant, the room always... More

Stayed in the Mizzentop Building. Room was very spacious, nice view from the deck. Large TV with nice variety to pick from. Water for showers was nice and hot. Coffee maker easy to use. Small refrigerator kept things nice and cold. Liked the bathroom, sinks seperate from the toilet/shower area so two people can be doing different things. Free Wi-Fi... More

We grabbed a room here at the last minute for an impromptu weekend in Bar Harbor. Though we wanted to stay in town, all rooms were booked so we went with the Bluenose. I read some of the not so great reviews, but I am really glad we ignored them and took the chance to come here. First I guess... More

Easy access to Acadia National Park and town of Bar Harbor. Stay in the Mizzentop where you get a great view of Frenchmen's Bay. Our room was lovely and very clean. One bad point, the airconditioning unit was very noisy and when it was off you could hear road noise. Beautiful indoor pool, plenty of parking and overall quiet. During... More

This was a very nice hotel with a very friendly staff! My wife and I had no problems finding the location and the room was outstanding. We had a suite with a balcony overlooking Bar Harbor. The view was spectacular and the room was very clean and spacious. I have no complaints about this hotel and will come back here... More

Located just a few miles from the entrance to Acadia National Park, the Bluenose Inn is a wonderful hotel. The views from our balcony of Bar Harbor, the bay, and many islands is spectacular. The rooms are large, well furnished, and immaculate. Ours even has a fireplace. The great room just off the lobby is a wonderful place to have... More

My kids are still asking to go back to the Bluenose! Was hands down the best hotel stay we had during a road trip through Maine. The pool is beautiful! We stayed across the parking lot in that building (close to pool). The rooms were very quiet and clean. When we return to Bar Harbor, the Bluenose will be the... More

We discovered the Blue Nose in the 90's and revisited in 2002. We always looked forward to going to the Great Room and hearing Bill Trowell play the piano. He is truly one of the best you will find. Therefore, we did not think twice about where we would stay on our recent visit. We were traveling with friends to... More

This is such a beautiful hotel! Gorgeous views overlooking Frenchman's Bay, this hotel went out of their way to make sure our stay was exceptional. We were there during the power outage on the 5th, the management kept us up to date on everything that was going on. The staff were very inviting and gave us great recommendations for things... More
