We shared our dearest friend's 50th birthday with a trip to Bar Harbor to eat fresh lobster. Stayed a week at the Bluenose Inn. Loved it! Staff was very friendly. Brian, the Bellman, was top notch and especially helpful. He really made our stay enjoyable. Enjoyed the evening cookies that were set out daily & the dark chocolate we received at check in. The general manager had a nice touch with the handwritten thank you note and the Tue/Thur wine & cheese meet & greet. We had a great view from our room with a private balcony overlooking Frenchman's Bay. Loved watching the ships come in and the big night sky. Breakfast at The Looking Glass Restaurant was enjoyable as were evenings sitting by the fireplace in the piano bar. On a couple occasions we felt it was slightly understaffed although the staff were always friendly and appeared to be doing their best. Would have been nice if the bar opened before 5pm but were close enough to town to remedy that. Had a great day at the pool, hot tub and sauna on the one rainy day of the trip. Our friends got a massage in the spa.....ooooh nice. (Should have joined them)
