This was our first trip to Bar Harbor, Maine. We chose the Thornhedge Inn because it is located almost right in the center of town. The inn has plenty of parking so we were able to walk to the restaurants, shops, whale watch tour, etc. The inn staff is very eager to be helpful so we had excellent advice on what to do, where to eat and anything else we had questions about. It is an historic home, Victorian style. We liked the fact that we had access to most all the main living rooms. Fortunately, these rooms hadn't been converted to guest rooms so there was a feeling of being in a home. The wine and cheese every evening on the large front porch was attended by most of the guests. We really enjoyed meeting and getting to know people from all over the United States and Europe. The rooms on the second floor are great for a romantic feel. The third floor rooms seemed better for younger folks as they were less expensive and had a good number of steps to climb to get to them. There were also some rooms under the main living level, but we didn't have a chance to see them. The full breakfast served in the main dining room was really, very good and another place to interact with the other guests. If you want a fancy, brand new accommodation, don't come here. If you want a fun, friendly homelike atmosphere, this is the place to stay.
