We first visited this hotel in 2000., and stayed in about the same rooms on the same level as the office. At that time we had a wonderful view of Bar Harbor from our little balcony. The trees have taken over and the view is gone, except for a tiny piece in the distance off to the right. That was quite disappointing this time. Also disappointing, the rooms are exactly the same! Same draperies, same bedspreads, same linoleum bathroom. The carpet is the only upgrade in 14 years! The prices are not the same, and I cringe that we spent over $150 per night. That said, the rooms are large and the hotel quiet. The complimentary breakfast was a nice surprise and was the usual selections-waffles, yogurts, frozen breakfast sandwiches, hard boiled eggs,cereals and apples and oranges, muffins and donuts. We did not visit the restaurant up the hill this time, the menu is quite expensive and we were not confident that the food would live up to the prices so we skipped that.
We had a couple of great days at Acadia National Park and enjoyed our return trip there immensely! We had waited 14 years for the wonderful Popovers for afternoon tea on the lawn and it was just as delicious this time, even better as they now serve specialty coffees now!
