Stayed here for 5 nights. Enjoyed every minute. This isn't your typical Inn/Hotel, it is a Old House built in the early 1900's. It is designed to be a classic stay on the Ocean. Some people complained about power outlets and counter space, but this is a old building and modernizing it like a current hotel would ruin its appeal. Food was great, staff were great. I highly recommend this Inn. Everything in Bar Harbor is within walking distance, there is even a great ice cream place at the end of the street.
