We recently spent one night at the Bar Harbor Inn, while visiting Acadia National Park. The inn is massive and has stunning ocean views. The best thing about the inn is the location. From the inn, you can walk anywhere in the town of Bar Harbor and you can drive to Acadia National Park in just 5 minutes. The grounds... More

We definitely will be back to this special place. We had dinner both nights we stayed there and loved the food! The view in the reading room is most memorable.. Watching the sailing ship leaving the Harbor during dinner is timeless.. And lunch on the lawn in the afternoon is like traveling back in time..

We enjoyed the Inn, for they have kept the charm and floral gardens with the shore oath easy to access. The restaurants, fun and friendly staff along with the continental breakfast that is served with love and patience each morning. We loved the boiled eggs, pistachio muffins, bagels, fruit and Greek yogurt, delicious coffee and cereal, oatmeal, toast options and... More

This is my first trip to the BHI but it won't be my last.I had a wonderful relaxing trip made even better by the offering of daily yoga by the bay. There was additional cost for yoga but it was so worth it. The accommodations and service were excellent. The food at the Reading room was excellent. The grounds beautifully... More

This was our second trip to Bar Harbor. Good food and drinks. We were all very pleased with the outstanding service from the pool house bartenders - better than last summer. Thanks for making it fun! I hope to see some same faces next year

We stayed on the second floor of the new, ocean side building. Some reviewers have noted there is no elevator service, but the hotel staff were only too happy to move our bags for us. In fact, all of the staff were helpful, professional, and courteous, from the front desk to the restaurant and to the spa. Our room was... More

You're being taken for granted when you stay at Bar Harbor Inn. Location is their calling card and without it they'd be hard pressed to charge $98/night, much less the $400 which I paid. Our extended family of 9 persons were in 3 rooms. Management obviously assumes you'll pay up for the location no matter how deferred the maintanance is.... More

Waking up to a beautiful sunrise over the bay and then have an amazing breakfast in the dining room is a treat. Being able to walk anywhere in town and then for a lobster bake....all within a short drive to Acadia. Only place in Bar Harbor has all of these amenities: our favorite BHI. Tip: book early to get an... More
