I chose this inn when planning our trip to Acadia National Park. I did a lot of research (there are lots of places to stay here) , but ultimately chose this location. We really liked the location, which is a ways out of town. The town of Bar Harbor, approximately 3 miles away, is ok ( it's not Camden), but it is very, very busy. It is a cruise ship harbor as well as the gateway to Acadia National Park. That said, Bay Ledge is spectacular. Our upstairs room ( no elevator ) had the best view of our 9 day stay in New England. The room was great with sliding doors onto a balcony that overlooked Frenchman's Bay. The inn building itself is also beautiful, as well as the grounds. There is a large porch facing the bay with chaise lounges. Breakfast is also served outdoors, weather permitting. Otherwise, it is served inside a large dining area off of the front porch, with large windows so that the view is not missed. Jack and Jean are the innkeepers here and do a great job. Jack is friendly, wanting each guest to feel welcome. Jean is the cook ( a very good one, I might add). The warm pear tartlet on our second morning was my personal favorite. Another great feature here is accessibility to the National Park. The closest park entrance is only about a mile away.
