The Bar Harbor Inn is a classic inn much akin to a very fine vintage wine - gorgeous waterfront location - the best location in Bar Harbor! The views of the harbor and the image of the Margaret Todd four-masted schooner anchored in at the forefront of the bay is stunning. Dining under umbrellas at the Terrace Grill is sheer... More

I have never been more delighted with a hotel. A beautiful setting, lovely grounds, convenient to waterfront and shops. We stayed in oceanfront lodge and the view was to die for. We saw the sun rise over the water and the lobster boats going out. Our building had a free continental breakfast that looked very substantial and you could eat... More

The food was great. I had a great time in the reading room restaurant Cathy Walton (food service manager) was so kind to us. I love the place and all the people there were working so hard. Especially Phelecia our waiter she is very attentive and nice and also filipino interns who were there to assist our needs.

We have a room not in the main lodge and without a view so that was disappointing but it was the only room available. It is a bit pricey but so is everything around here. Staff is efficient but not overly friendly or helpful like some of the places we have stayed in the past week and a half. If... More

We were there the second week in Sept. Our room overlooked the harbor, and just sitting on the balcony watching the boats was such a relaxing, special experience! Our room was lovely and spacious. The other very special thing at this hotel was a cooking demonstration by Chef Louis Kiefer Jr. He showed us some of the property herb beds,... More

The staff was very friendly and helpful. They allowed us to check in very early, gave us local maps, just generally made us feel welcome. The room was charming, clean and well-appointed. The continental breakfast was well-stocked and very tasty. But the best part about this place is the spectacular view of the harbor!

Spent three nights at the Bar Harbor Inn and loved everything. Spacious room with a view of the bay. Fireplace and porch were an added bonus. Quiet evenings and caring staff with excellent spa facilities. Awesome location a block from the Bar Harbor community. We will definitely be back.

Beautiful location with stunning views of the harbor. You can walk to restaurants and shops downtown. Attentive staff and the Terrace and Reading Room restaurants are top notch. My husband and I loved the property! Rooms are appropriately furnished and the continental breakfast more than adequate. We'll be coming back-
