Beautiful, clean and exceptionally comfortable room! Brochures in the room were great in navigating from restaurants to Acadia national park. Staff were very helpful in changing our original reservation so that we would not have to move on our second night. I would highly recommend staying at the Bluenose and will definitely return. Thank you for the wonderful stay!

We were in a huge second floor room in the main (Mizzentop) building with a water view. It was a great value, 30% less than the nearby Hampton Inn. The only thing keeping the Bluenose Inn from an "excellent" rating was the complimentary breakfast buffet. Not only was it anemic but very picked-over. People really don't expect a free brekfast...

We had a beautiful view from room 318. The room was clean and big enough for our family of 3. The room was a bit dated but that didn't bother since most of our time was spent outdoors. The pools were a nice way to spend time between shopping in town and exploring Acadia. We hope we can return soon!

Stayed for 3 nights. My 3rd floor room had a spectacular view of Frenchman's Bay. Very plush carpet and great bed and pillows. Coffee in all rooms and free continental breakfast in lobby of main building. Adjacent Looking Glass Restaurant has really, really good breakfasts and dinners.Just loved this visit.

I stayed one night when the fog had rolled in, so I cannot comment on the view; but the Bluenose Inn is a friendly, clean, comfortable place to stay that is very convenient to downtown Bar Harbor and Acadia National Park. During this particular trip, I was traveling alone, and I felt very safe walking around the grounds during the... More
