“Great Inn, Great Location”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 13, 2006

This inn is in a very good location, on a side street and within walking distance to most restaurants, shops, and the harbor area. The property consists of several buildings, some containing suite or townhouse-like accomodations. The owners are very friendly and helpful but not intrusive. The lobby area has a book of restaurant menus. The inn does not serve breakfast (there is a coffee maker in the room) but I strongly recommend Jordan's Pancake House which is open from 5am to 2pm and serves outstanding blueberry muffins and pancakes with all the mixes you can carry out the door (for a price that is cheaper than the gifts shops along the harbor). We had dinner one night at Maggies and one night at Gaylen's, both excellent and within walking distance (Maggie's is closer). Because the inn is on a side street, it is a very quiet place to stay.

I have no time to write reviews; this is rare for me. However, upon seeing a negative review for this property, I HAD to write. We stayed at this property over the 4th of July 2006 & were so HAPPY with our accomodations that we decided to return this October. Unfortunately, all rooms were booked. I just did a search to see if I could determine the names of other properties in Bar Harbor owned SPECIFICALLY by these proprietors. In doing so, I encounted TripAdvisor and the (crazy) posting I mentioned above.

If you get a chance, stay at this property. The owners were friendly, intelligent, tasteful and extremely proud of the Inn. I actually spent some time speaking with them about how much detail work and finish went into rehabbing this property . They should indeed be proud of what they have accomplised. A great value too.

My husband and I spent three wonderful days (Sept. 14-16) in Bar Harbor/Acadia National Park. The Bar Harbor Manor was the ideal place for us to stay. For those not wanting to stay in a Bed & Breakfast nor a large hotel...this location was the perfect solution. The grounds of Bar Harbor Manor are beautifully maintained. The hotel itself is immaculate. The staff was so kind and helpful. From suggesting restaurants to offering ideas on hikes or scenic routes to take...we couldn't have asked for a better place to stay. We will definitely be going back to Bar Harbor and when we do we will certainly stay at the Bar Harbor Manor again.

We stayed at Bar Harbor Manor while in Bar Harbor to do hiking/biking in Acadia National Park. It was a great choice--we rented a 1 bedroom suite which gave us plenty of room for our gear and also included a kitchenette which was convenient for breakfast/snacks. The property was well maintained and very clean. Being able to walk to town was also a huge positive. Would recommend to others & definitely would stay there again. If you're not the B&B type, this is a great choice.

Our 3 night stay started with the man at the front desk giving us ideas on where to eat. He knew his stuff as we followed his recommendations 3 times and were very happy with them. He also gave us a little advice about hiking and sea kayaking. We loved the room, or shall I call it a suite? It was 2 rooms, a huge closet, and a large bathroom. The little room with the fireplace, easy chairs, kitchen, and desk area was great for planning our next activity and packing our lunch each day. It was on the 2nd floor of one of the detached buildings. The whole place was quiet and relaxing. It was within walking distance of town, yet away from the hordes of shoppers and the traffic. We had 2 complaints: the bed was a little hard for our taste (although we were so tired by night two that it didn't stop us from sleeping) and we got a little tired of the Acadia channel since there was nothing much else for channels (a sports channel for updates would be perfect!).
