We spent 5 nights during the Government shut down! Almost cancelled because our primary reason to visit the area was to hike in Acadia National Park. We read online that there was plenty of things to do in the area despite the shut down so we decided to go anyway. The first morning we were there we found out (in the breakfast room) that we could hike or ride bikes in the park but just could not drive in so we were very excited about that news. We had to park along the roads and walk in.
The hotel is located about 1 mile from the Hull Cove park entrance so very convenient. However, it is about 4-5 miles from the town of Bar Harbor. Not really a problem though because parking in town was not a problem and if you visit before Columbus Day weekend there is a shuttle you can take from the hotel into town (the shuttle stops after that).
Carol in the breakfast room is amazing. She will get you started with ideas for your day. There is a very nice grocery store in town on Cottage Street so we stocked up on water and some sandwich supplies for our hikes along with a good map of the Mount Desert Island & Acadia National Park hiking trails & carriage roads by Map Parkman(well worth the $6).
