This was our first time to Bar Harbor and we were not disappointed!! It was lovely as was our room. My favorite part was the balcony in our room. Don't let the outdated decor on the pictures fool you, these rooms are very nice and quaint. I would highly reccommend the harbor side in the lodge. We travelled at the...

We had a room over a noisy breakfast room and we are light sleepers. The staff offered us another comparable room without us asking. The view from the room was fabulous and we were given a coupon for a reduced rate at the Reading Room restaurant there where the meal great.

We didn't have the best rooms in the Inn, but I have to say that for the price and location (compared to other places nearby) this place was great. Service was good and professional - even through an inconvenient room change mid-week, beds comfortable, etc. One of the best free continental breakfasts services I have ever had, plus a great...

The Bar Harbor Inn's best feature is the location. It's centrally located in downtown Bar Harbor with an incredible view of the bay. Our non ocean view room was a little too cramped for two double beds (clean bathroom though). A nice place for a weekend trip.

At the end of May, we stayed three nights in this classical old style Inn on the banks of the Frenchmen Bay in Maine. The site is unique, eating lobster on the terrasse is exquisite.

May 13-15, 2013 we had the pleasure of spending two nights at the Bar Harbor Inn & Spa in the oceanfront lodge area which offered a beautiful large room complete with a waterfront balcony.
