Traveling with a family member means two beds, or better yet, two bedrooms, a requirement that can thin out the number of appropriate B&B's in any location.
The Atlantean Inn in Bar Harbor has a two bedroom suite with a gorgeous bath that includes a whirlpool tub and skylight. The decor is light and bright, even though the house is one of the town's historic beauties. It isn't weighed down by too many ornate furnishings, as some of its kind tend to be.
Heidi and Gary, owners/innkeepers, understand the delicate balance between too much and too little guest attention. They will chat if you like, or not, and have a wealth of valuable information about the area and its rich history.
Gary's breakfast isn't going to be forgotten anytime soon. Fresh fruit in yogurt, delicious coffee, muffins, fruit juices and then the entree of a most wonderful frittata. Served in a lovely dining room at small tables with comfy chairs and linen tablecloths, located across the hall from the parlor, this is the prefect way to end a good night's sleep.
The mattresses receive honorable mention, courtesy of my back.
We hope that your stay at The Atlantean is as memorable as ours was.
