I enjoy quiet getaways and the Bar Harbor Inn was exactly that during their final weekend (Thanksgiving, 2012) for the season. We stayed in an oceanview room during this cold weekend and couldn't have been more pleased with the view, location, and service (not to mention end-of-season rates...!). We did not get to try The Reading Room restaurant becuase they had closed already for the season but intend to return one day just for the view, and as a previous reviewer experienced, the continental breakfast was minimal (I attribute it to end-of-season clean-up - which I expected). If you are looking for all of the businesses to be open during your Bar Harbor stay, you need to go earlier in the season. We did find a couple of restaurants, the bookstore, and a few gift shops open. We have been in mid-summer, early fall and now late Fall. I think that this has been my favorite stay so far. Fewer people, better service, and no lines to drive through Acadia State Park. Just be sure to pack your parka for the oceanview walking path!
