We stayed at the Bluenose (the main building) with another family. We booked a separate room for our 3 teenage daughters to share. Our first impression was that the rooms were in fact adjoining (as requested) and they had put three sets of everything in the room for the girls, including robes (very nice touch). The rooms are lovely, with balconies overlooking the harbor. The property is beautifully maintained. There is free coffee in the lobby with excellent cookies in the afternoon. The two pools (one indoor and one outdoor) are spotless and have lots of nice lounge chairs. The staff was excellent, including the concierge, who recommended the Rinehart for lobster (walking distance), the Rose Garden (for a special dinner; it was outstanding) and Havannah for dinner (in town--the best paella I ever had). She also arranged for our sea kayaking and our whale watching trip. The main part of Bar Harbor is a short drive (less than 10 minutes) from the hotel. We would definitely stay here again.
