This is an extremely well maintained property. Our room was expansive and comfortable with a working fireplace. The public areas are very nice and there is plenty of outdoor space on the massive porches and the gazebo in the side yard. There are several buildings on the property, ranging from the original mansion to an almost new house in the rear. Afternoon tea was great; the tasty treats were all very good. Located on West Street, this inn is within walking distance of everything in Bar Harbor, and in the summer, that is a VERY good thing. You can leave your car at the inn and walk to lunch, dinner, and shopping. Two minor areas could use improvement; there is adequate parking on the property, but being that the area is covered with gravel versus black-top, there are no delineated parking spaces, so this means that people sometimes take up too much space and don't leave enough room for additional cars. On the night that we stayed there, at least three additional cars could have fit in the lot had it been properly marked. Also, breakfast wasn't as good as we would have expected; the heated dishes are served in warmers and are made up in batches. Made to order dishes would have been much better. Over-all, a very good place; we will stay there again when in Bar Harbor.
