nice location; room was quiet and near the indoor pool which was amazing!! We were the only ones who used the pool whenever we were there...it was so pleasant, big, clean...I could go on and on. My 9 an 11 year old grand-daughters especially loved it. There is no life guard, which was fine. Plenty of towels and comfortable seating.... More

Be very careful if book on-line. I tried to book 6 nights on-line (4/2/16) and there was a computer glitch showing all 6 nights were just $350 plus taxes. Being a very honest, I called the hotel and inquired. I was told there was a computer glitch. The summer escape package was rated for $218 per night and it came... More

Stayed here while hiking Acadia. It was so beautiful. Clean and intimate. I will stay here again. Being a fitness junkie, the large hill going up to the Inn is good for sprinting :) The rooms are clean, the fireplace puts out massive heat. Enjoyed my stay tremendously.

We lived everything about this hotel. We had a room on the 4th floor and the view was fantastic. We had drinks in the lounge and that was such a beautiful room. Dinner was fantastic. We also enjoyed the pool. We can't wait to stay genre again.

Absolutely loved this hotel and would definitely stay here again. Great location, very clean everywhere and stunning luxury apartment/ rooms. Definitely better to have a room/ apartment above the ground floor as better views, which were fantastic. Meal in lounge bar, fabulous atmosphere with pianist playing in background. Simple but lovely touches in the room like great coffee machine, luxury... More

We expected a AAA 4-diamond and TripAdvisor 4 of 5 hotel, one that might be old but would certainly be restored and well maintained, quaint, enjoyable even, for a short stay. That is not what we found. Old-fashioned I can like, but I’ve come to expect quiet private rooms with heating, cooling, indoor plumbing, Wi-Fi, and a safe locked door... More

A family vacation to Bar Harbor is a must for anyone visiting Maine. My family of 5 had the pleasure of spending a night at The Bluenose Inn. Very accommodating. Very clean. Even had the pleasure of being greeted by the owner at cocktail hour. Wonderful indoor pool kept the kids very happy.
