My wife and I were dissatisfied with the small hotel we had chosen in Bar Harbor - a once beautiful place we had been to, years ago. Scouting around we found the Balance Rock Inn and enquired about a room. The very friendly staff offered us the "last" room they had - high season being what it is on the coast... Wow! Canopy bed, wonderful comfort, warm design and decor. A lover's delight. Good food, great view from the breakfast room to the nearby seaside. Like another review wrote, Balance Rock Inn is like a distinguished and inspiring older lady. Expensive, but worth every dollar.

- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Balance Rock Inn is one of the premier oceanfront lodging properties in Bar Harbor, ME. Set on a secluded tree-covered property with expansive views of Frenchman's Bay, this luxurious bed and breakfast Inn's name celebrates the "balance rock," a precariously positioned boulder on the nearby ocean shore, a huge remnant from an ice age. Balance Rock's 21 rooms and suites and 3 apartment-style luxury suites are tastefully outfitted in harmonious colors, handsome wall coverings, handcrafted furnishings, and all the creature comforts. All guest rooms have queen or king beds with Select Comfort Sleep number pillow topped mattresses with a hypoallergenic feather and down tic to sink into. As you slide between the luxurious 500 count linens, under your hypoallergenic down and feather comforter inside designer duvet covers, you will feel like you are sleeping on a cloud. You can adjust the firmness of the mattress on either side for your personal preferences. All rooms and suites have private bath, cable television with DVD player, direct-dial telephone and WIFI internet access; and ten accommodations also have working fireplaces. There is a full complimentary DVD library at the front desk with a list of movies offered in your guest services book. Select a room or suite with a private deck, balcony, whirlpool tub, dry sauna, or Euro showerhead for added pampering. All rooms and suites have individually controlled heat and air conditioning. Each of the three apartment-style luxury suites features a living and dining space, eat-in kitchen, private bath, private deck or porch, and ocean views.
