Hotel close to downtown

Spending 2 nights in Bar Harbor in Oct. Arcadia during the day but would like a hotel close enough to walk to downtown in the evenings? I have already looked into the Bar Harbor Grand...no rooms. Any other suggestions...Thanks!

First off, it is Acadia. You might try the Bar Harbor Inn, the West Street Hotel, or the Harborside Hotel and Marina. All three are on or close to water and all within a very short walk of the village center.

If B&Bs interest you, most are within the same easy walking distance; see

Hi Asheville!

In October, you're most unlikely to see the summertime crowds that make parking in Bar Harbor difficult on weekends between July and Labor Day. Bar Harbor is indeed a pleasant town in which to overnight, and scenic too, but the same can be said for the rest of Mount Desert Island. If you've got your own wheels and your only fear is parking, know that you have many choices.

Route 3, the highway linking Bar Harbor with the mainland, has dozens of accommodations lining it. Most all of them cost less than places in downtown Bar Harbor, lie within 10 minutes drive of town, and are no less convenient to the scenery elsewhere on the island. If money is a factor, it's something to keep in mind.

Happy travels,

David
