“Great View!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 7, 2005

I recently attended a three day meeting at the Bluenose Inn. What a beautiful property. My room had an incredible view of the ocean. It was nice to sit by the fireplace in my room and watch the boats in the harbor. The restaurant was first class. The staff was very attentive and the food was delicious. The room which the meeting was held in was decorated beautifully and also overlooked the harbor. I would recommend this property to anyone visiting the Bar Harbor area.

5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 6, 2005

I had the pleasure of spending three nights at the Bluenose in May of this year. The hotel was wonderful. Their indoor pool was the perfect placce to relax on the cool days in May and their Great Room Lounge was great place to relax after a long day of meetings and site seeing. Their restaurant was also wonderful and very deserving of the four diamond rating from AAA. Finally, I cannot say enough about the staff. The front desk clerks and housekeepers all went out of their way to make sure that we had a great stay. This is one of the nicest hotels that I have ever stay in. I hope to get back some time this summer.
