This hotel has very nice accommodations. The view is fantastic and the staff works very hard to take good care of you. That, I believe comes from the example set by the GM, Katie who always seems to be willing to greet you with a smile and go the extra mile for her guests.

Friendly staff, wonderful views, great room & good food on site. We booked this hotel for our group not really knowing anything about it. I was pleasantly surprised how much nicer it was that I had expected.

Lovely older hotel with 2 swimming pools which we enjoyed. Clean, quiet, room with a nice view. Nice morning breakfast to start the day with cereal, toast,bagels,fruit,yogurt,juice etc. complimentary so easy to either eat in the small breakfast room or take back to your room. Wonderful and informative staff.

We had a wonderful stay at the Bluenose Inn in their spacious room, with a balcony overlooking Bar Harbor and Frenchmen's Bay. We live in Bangor, Maine, but wanted to spend a night away from our kids, so we booked a room, which was upgraded when we arrived, and had a lovely time. The weather was awful, but since we... More

Room was nice and spacious. It's Old Victorian style, which I really like. Staff was also very friendly and helpful. Continental breakfast was sufficient but the staff had trouble keeping up with enough food. Had to request for more yogurt, eggs and jam but they did get them right away.

We were there July 4 weekend, 2016. Hotel was comfortable, not fancy, staff very helpful in spite of our late arrival. We got a suite (did not request it) which was very spacious, with a small porch looking directly out to Frenchman's Bay: gorgeous waters, mountians and islands in the near horizon. Room equipped with a gas fireplace which we... More

We had a wonderful 2 night stay at the Bluenose during a recent Maine/Canada road trip. I selected the hotel because of the indoor pool and the pool itself did not disappoint. It was kept warm enough that we could enjoy long swims even though it was cool and foggy outside. The hot tub was actually hot, which seems like... More

We spent a week in Bar Harbor while I was attending the Acadia Trad School summer workshops and chose the Bluenose Inn because it's right across the street. We splurged for a suite on the top floor at Mizzentop which is the building closest to the bay and with the best views. Because you're on the fourth floor and on... More
