We are touring the USA and we wanted a hotel with a sea view when we came to Bar Harbour. We found the Balance Rock Inn, what a find! The hotel is very well appointed, the staff in every department were friendly and efficient, thoughtful extras were provided, like snacks in the afternoon, there is a cosy fire pit on the deck outside the bar. We intended to stay one night, but extended our stay for an extra night as it was so good. The breakfast was excellent. All in all, the best hotel we have stayed in during our four weeks in America.

All rooms and suites have either a king or queen size select comfort bed, a private bath, flat screen television with DVD player, WIFI internet access, individually controlled AC and heat, and most with amazing ocean views! The Inn features a full bar and restaurant, sundeck with fire pit, and heated swimming pool...all overlooking the ocean.
