My husband and I loved southwest harbor area and the Acadia park. Bar harbor was very crowded but good for a day trip, about 20 min drive. The Inn is comfortable and clean with air conditioners (which are quiet ) in each room we stayed in, the Turret (the fireplace was cozy on a rainy day) and Lyndhurst, which have king beds too. Breakfasts were delicious and served early, which got the day started but discouraged a later sleep in time. The inn is steps away from the quiet side cafe which has great pizza and ice cream and blueberry pie! There seemed to be one problem when our room wasn't made up by the maid one day. Next time, I might try the B&B that is a little further from the main street.
