The hotel is in an elevated position about a mile from Bar Harbor. Our room, in the main building, was spacious, very clean and comfortable - (the unexpected) sitting area with wonderful views across the bay was an added bonus. The décor is very traditional. As we were driving around New England, we welcomed the opportunity to make use of... More

An early November ice storm left my husband and I without heat, lights, hot water and cooking facilities at our home near Bar Harbor for an extended period. I got word that the Bluenose Inn was offering a great rate to locals in our fix, so when our electricity hadn't been restored by late on the second day, I called... More

We stayed in one of the suites with a fireplace during our stay. The views were amazing. The room was clean and well furnished. The bed was very comfortable. We hated to leave. The managers reception was also nice.

Hotel is situated about a mile out of Bar Harbour in a slightly raised position so that it has magnificent views. Our room (booked as part of a tour package) was lovely - large and with its own sitting area. Hotel is perhaps a little old fashioned in décor but has a good bar and very helpful staff. Free wifi.

The service at the restaurant was terrible. We had 3 meals the at breakfast the service was extremely slow & at dinner the service was extremely slow. The wait staff was indifferent. The quality of the food was mediocre. Thus these meals were over priced for the marginal quality food & bad service.. It is unfortunate as everything else at... More

Although the BlueNose was closing on Sunday for the winter season, the Inn was functioning as if in high season. The staff was welcoming and friendly. The décor of the Inn and its rooms is traditional with wood, brass and crystal, large floral prints, and comfortable furnishings. Our room, #326, had a living room with a gas fireplace and with...

Although this was a late season special event (in fact, the Inn was hosting a murder mystery dinner), it was clear the staff of the Bluenose are dedicated to helping guests have a wonderful time in this amazing part of the world.
