We decided to take our ten month old twins and go on our first family vacation to Bar Harbor and stay at this hotel. We couldn't have chose a better place! The hotel is very clean, and saying the staff is kind would not even justify how nice they all are. Everyone always smiled and was helpful. The staff is aware of many local activities and restaurants and were very willing to share their information with us and give recommendations. Also, the continental breakfast is great! Only a short walk to town (about 2 minutes), which was wonderful because parking in town is horrendous.
