Reviewed August 28, 2013

We don't get to Bar Harbor very often but when we do we stay at this hotel. The views are magnificent, the staff is very friendly and helpful, and it is within walking distance to downtown Bar Harbor (it is hilly so the shuttle bus is a wonderful alternative to walking). Newly upgraded rooms and a new pool have been put in since our last visit. In the morning there is a good breakfast with something for everyone. We will stay here the next time we return to this area. It is a great jumping off spot for exploring Acadia National Park.

My family and I have been coming to Bar Harbor/Acadia National Park for the past 20 years. We have always stayed at the Atlantic Eyrie. It just continues to get better and better. This year they moved and upgraded the pool. They have a fantastic, generous breakfast and the staff is amazing and professional. This year my son and daughter in law have continued with our family tradition. They stayed for one week and loved every minute. The most cherished part of our stay for my husband and myself are the sunrises from your terrace and the views of Frenchman's Bay. That alone can cure what ails you! Can't wait for next summer....

Hello,
I think the biggest compliment we can receive is repeat business and your family can speak with knowledge about everything we have been improving on and we appreciate that. If you come back next year you will see even more improvements, especially to the hallways and to the grounds. How nice that more of your family is joining in on the tradition of visiting our beautiful island. I agree with you wholeheartedly, there is something very special about getting up early in the morning, coffee in hand and an inspiring ocean view that goes on for miles. Thank you so much for staying with us so frequently and noticing what we've been working on. It is very much appreciated. Have a great autumn! ~Joanne

My husband and I stayed August 14th - 21st in room # 308 facing out at Frenchmen Bay. The Atlantic Eyrie Lodge is a 5 star hotel in my opinion. When my husband opened the door to the room, you can't help yourself to say WOW!!! look at this room and the view we have for the week we are here. The two of us made full use of the room while we were there. Most mornings, we would bring our continental breakfast back to our room and eat it, because there was a cozy table for two in the room or on the balcony and watch the world go by. Also we would do that for dinner too. Did I mention a microwave and refridge. in room. The salt water pool was amazing to swim in which is new for 2013.(solar heated) They have an island explorer bus that picks you right up at the lobby to the village green in Bar Harbor. From the people that check you in to all the way to the grounds keepers are all very hard workers and they do it with a nice hello everyday they see you. Two of the days we stayed in the room all day, and the front desk call and asked if we were ok and did we need anything. How's that for service? From now on, we will always stay here when visiting Acadia National Park, Maine

Room Tip: 3rd or 4th floor facing Frenchmen Bay. My opinion, any room you get has some kind of view.

Now that was quite the complimentary review! It's my turn to say, "Wow!" and thank you very much. It's not often you hear someone say they were spoiled by a hotel and I will definitely pass on all the lovely comments to our manager to tell the staff. It makes our day when a guest realizes we do care about them, it isn't lip service at all for us. We know how much planning goes into our own vacations and how special we want them to be so we just treat our guests like we would like to be treated while traveling away from home! Thank you for noticing! Hope you consider staying with us when you are back on the island. ~Joanne

I stayed 3 nights with my daughter and aunt. I feel we lucked out and picked the best place to stay. Room rates are resonable. Absolutely amazing views from the room. Hotel was very clean. Staff was very friendly and helpful. Free shuttle service @ the front door of hotel. Perfectly located to downtown and the park. Great breakfast. Salt water pool. I could go on and on. Atlantic Eyrie will always be my first choice of where to stay when we return to Bar Harbor.

Room Tip: Ask for a higher floor as the views can only get better.

"Atlantic Eyrie will always be my first choice of where to stay when we return to Bar Harbor." That line is what all of us strive for when a new guest stays with us. I'm glad you and your Aunt and daughter enjoyed your stay. Also happy that the staff was welcoming and friendly. We do take pride in that and actually, our staff is even like that in the off season! Hope to see you again, have a wonderful autumn and winter and thank you so much for the glowing review~Joanne

Just got back from a trip to Bar Harbor with my husband and two children (ages 12 and 13). Our stay at the Atlantic Eyrie Lodge was wonderful. From check-in to check out, all the staff members were very friendly and helpful. As other reviewers have mentioned, the rooms have the best view of the area overlooking Frenchman's Bay. Our room was clean and plenty large enough for the four of us. Would have been fine for five if my oldest son had joined us. The kids enjoyed the pool, and I enjoyed the peace, quiet, and the wonderful view. The continental breakfast was plenty for us, the warm muffins were delicious. We would choose this hotel again without hesitation next time we come back to Bar Harbor.

Love your moniker! Of course I am a Pat's fan but the Eagles are always fun to watch! We appreciate that great review. There is something really special about getting up early and having coffee on the balcony and just watching the view over the water. So peaceful and it sounds like you enjoyed it as well. Thanks for the compliments on the muffins as well. Take care. Enjoy the autumn or I should probably say, enjoy the football season! ~Joanne

We stayed at this hotel 16 years ago and chose it again during our August visit. One can't beat the view of the bay from each room. The trolley that runs from the hotel to downtown bar Harbor is a bonus. Upgrades have been made in the pool and continental breakfast. The rooms are spacious but adequate. Two sinks were a plus. For the price, I was disappointed as our room overlooked the construction on the end of the hotel. Some cosmetic updates need to be done outside. Proximity to Acadia is great.

Hello,
Thank you for staying with us again. I'm sorry about that construction next door. We hope it will be winding down. You noted we have been making improvements and we are happy to tell you that we are going to be updating all the exterior hallways this winter. I hope you will come stay with us again and we would be happy to place you in an area that you will still enjoy the wonderful view but be away from any view of the neighboring construction. Take care and have a great autumn. ~Joanne

Stayed at this hotel August 2013 with my family. We had a wonderful time, beautiful grounds, lovely pool, and rooms were clean and larger than expected, beautiful balcony view. Loved the second sink when getting ready. Staff was very friendly, great service, breakfast staff equally friendly and met all our needs during our stay. We chose this hotel based on its dog friendly accommodations and I would definitely recommend it! Close to town and Acadia park.

Hi,
That was an informative, concise and glowing review, thank you! So happy to hear that you like the pet friendly rooms. I've mentioned this before, but most of the staff are dog or cat owners so we were excited to transform rooms into pet friendly ones. I love the size of our rooms, too. So much roomier than other places we have stayed at. If you come back for a visit to the island, I hope you will stay with us again. Sincerely, Joanne
