My sister and brother in law and my wife and I stayed at the Blue Nose Inn the week of September 22. It was a little expensive but we all thought it was well worth the money. The view and facilities were excellent as was the staff and the Looking Glass restaurant. The previous review which was not the best involved a stay shortly after ours. We didn't experience anything like that review related at all. Our rooms for both couples were excellent as were the views, we had no problem sleeping, and the manager had an evening wine reception twice while we were there. We strongly recommend this resort hotel to anyone who wants a very pleasant stay while visiting Bar Harbor. We made reservations through AAA and had no idea what kind of a hotel they were sending us to. We did not use the spa. We are retired.
