Maples inn bar harbor
Mark the owner is a first rate host and is most welcoming. We stayed in the English holly room which had a 4 poster in which you had a set of steps to negotiate the bed. There were great touches that made the experience really rather pleasant, these included complimentary bottled water coffee and cake/cookies in the afternoon. Breakfast was delightfull and quite innovative.
Bar harbour itself seems to center itself around main street which is lined with every kind of restaurant you can think of and all reasonably priced. If like us you have enough of driving, then from the village green you can pick up a free bus (donations on the bus welcome) to all areas of acadia park which are frequent and incredible easy to navigate for your daily trips. Jordan pond is worth a visit. It's about 3 miles to walk around and can get tricky to navigate if you are clumsy like me. The restaurant at the end is most welcome. If you order some food you are given a free popover which comes with cream and jam. If you are English it's
essentially a yorkshire pudding!
The fav. restaurants thus far are mckays bottom end of main street and for lobster the Trenton bridge lobster pound in Ellsworth. If you are looking for fine dining this is not the place but for a decent lobster then this is the place to come. 2 medium lobsters with corn and potatoe salad and a couple of soft drinkd came in at 37 us dollars. If you want alcohol you can bring your own.
Cycled the carriages which is all off road which was great and not to taxing
All in all a pleasant stay now on to Jackman Maine for some rafting.
