we stayed there for 3 days in early August and truly enjoyed it, the grounds are beautiful, and the location wonderful, right on the shore path and a quick walk to Bar Harbor, it was great to park the car after a day of exploring Acadia and enjoy walking around the town. The staff was great and very attentive, breakfast and appetizer were very good. I really enjoyed the iced tea and cold water in the afternoon, and the bartender prepared some very good drinks especially blueberry martini.
Our room was very nice and actually bigger than I expected, we did not spend much time there, as the pool area and deck were very welcoming.
We look forward to making this an annual getaway.
