After a busy day of visiting Acadia National Park, climbing Cadillac Mountain and sightseeing in the town of Bar Harbor our group of family and friends made a misty dash to the cheerful yellow umbrella tables of the Bar Barbor Inn. From there our group of family and friends had a great view of the harbor and a lovely place... More

We arrived 3 hours before check in and went to the desk to ask about parking. Sophia said our room was ready and we should check in immediately. What a wonderful surprise! Got everything settled and then could sight see and shop. Later in the visit, Cathy, the restaurant manager, gave a tour and told the history of the hotel.... More

My wife and I stayed in the waterfront lodge and as expected the view was spectacular. A little confusion at check in as they placed us over the breakfast area but as it turned out we did not have a problem with noise at all. We did not eat the breakfast because we wanted to visit a couple of restaurants... More

We arrived a bit before check in time but the rooms were ready. The front desk staff were very welcoming and pleasant and took their time... More

We always go for the Summer Sensation package. It's a great value, considering the location and accommodations. We've always stayed in the Main Inn, the historic portion and a bay side room with a deck is highly recommended! Breakfasts and dinners are included with the package and you're free to order anything off the menu. There's enough lobster on the... More

We stayed at the Bar Harbor Inn for three nights August 2016. We had a room with a balcony overlooking Frenchman's Bay. It was great. The room was large with plenty of closet and drawer space. The location of the Bar Harbor Inn is fabulous. You do not have to move your car, it is close to everything.

You can pay more for a more luxurious experience, but the view at the Bar Harbor Inn is priceless. Why come to Maine if not to appreciate the scenic wonder and the fresh ocean air? We had an ocean view room and spent many hours gazing at the ever changing scene, which was enhanced by our own personal sea gull,... More
