I'm excited to plan a second trip to Bar Harbor - so many more activities to accomplish. I will only stay at the Bar Harbor Grand; Staff is sooooo friendly, curtious & helpful. They gave excellent suggestions for food and available activities in the area. The ice cream social that they hosted on the front porch was very welcoming and fun to chat with other families. The Grand is comfortable and a home away from home feel.

Charming historic look with modern amenities. Less than a 5 minute walk to the center of town, but far enough away to be free of the crowds. Don't miss the shore path walk 10 minutes away from the hotel. Staff was friendly and knowledgeable about local activities. The continental breakfast was perfect for a quick morning meal and a time saver for getting out to enjoy the town. Can't wait to go back!

We spent two nights in Bar Harbor and were very happy with our accommodations at the Bar Harbor Grand Hotel. Our room and bathroom were both very spacious and comfortable. The hotel has a great location - it is close enough to walk into town easily but it is just far enough from the center of town that the area is quiet. The staff were welcoming and friendly. Highly recommended.

Lovely, helpful staff! Karen at reception, provided lively conversation and spot on recommendations. Terrific blueberry muffins. Great stay for a last minute trip. Convenient to Acadia Park, great restaurants, and downtown area. Rooms and common area are ready for an update, but they were well maintained.

The Grand Hotel is in an excellent location with ample parking. No need to worry with driving around Bar Harbor as it is walking distance. The shore line trail is a don't miss and is a short distance from the Hotel.

Tom Thank you for the 5 stars. We are so close to everything. Parking is a premium in Bar Harbor so parking at the Grand and walking around town is the best. The shore path is a great way to walk back after dinner. Sincerely Jeannine Brooks General Manager
