What a joy to drive up to the top of the driveway and find this rather quirky spot. I had a bit of an ocean view over the treetops, and the room and bathroom were large and very comfortably. Sparkly sconces, even the bathroom, and mini chandelier in the bedroom added to the charm. It is a bit of a... More

This was our first visit to Bar Harbor and hopefully we will return not just to the town, but to the Bluenose as well. It was a great location with many amenities. The outdoor pool was clean and maintained. The indoor pool and hot tub were ok, but the steam room was amazing!!! The hotel staff were very helpful and... More

The Bluenose Inn has every little thing you could possibly want, from two pools (just in case the outside one is cold), to warm cookies and toothbrushes. So worth the time to get there and the cost of a great room!

I attended a weekend conference here. It's a large property with multiple buildings. Service was very good and I really appreciated the comfortableness and cleanliness of the room. The food was surprisingly good even though it was a conference meals that had been preplanned. Everything was fresh, hot and plentiful.

Bluenose Inn is outside of town on a hillside, not walking distance to Bar Harbor downtown, but a short drive. Close to the entrance to the must-see Acadia National Park. Clean, updated rooms. All the needed amenities. WiFi. Pool and exercise room (though with limited equipment) Music in the evenings in the lounge. A smallish continental breakfast for all and... More

The view is wonderful, The rooms are clean, There is a restaurant, a pool, a piano bar, what's not to love? Well if you are only spending one night none of that is useful or worth the $350/ night. Having said that I would recommend the Blue Nose to anyone looking for a relaxing week with or without the family.

We loved our room and the view from the balcony. I hope to come back in the not too distant future. Bar Harbor is a happening place and the proximity to Acadia National Park is a tremendous benefit for the Bluenose Inn and Suites.

Love location to Acadia. Continental breakfast was good and like that we didn't have to leave property to get breakfast. Clean rooms and nice soap products. Polite housekeeping staff. Liked the bar-greet barkeeper who has been out sick for 5 mos. and was back on the job the last noght we were there.

My significant and I stayed for 4 nights and didn't want to leave. Our room was fantastic and the view breath taking. Staff couldn't be more helpful. The only bad thing was the breakfast. I have seen a better breaskfast in a lower scale hotel or Inn.
