Reviewed 20 August 2015

We loved our room which was on the 4th floor of the main building. It was very clean and spacious for us. The staff was very courteous and helpful. Because of the lack of available parking around the area we liked the free bus service right outside the hotel.

Dear JHF4, Thank you for your comments regarding the room that you stayed in, I am sharing this with our maintenance manager so that he will take care of this. The oceanside building is the closest to the water therefore it is also the farthest from everything on property. Upside is the view, the smell of the salt water, sound...

My family and I spent a week in the hotel's cottage. The furnishings were a little bit dated but it was quite clean and comfortable. There was no maid service but there were more than enough towels for the week. I would gladly stay there again. I only wish that the free wi-fi was not so intermittent.

We really like to view and saw sunrise in the early morning. Breakfast is fine. But, WiFi is not good all time. It is very slow and disconnected often. Hotel shall upgrade their equipment in such high end place.

I booked this room through Expedia.com and got a really good rate for a waterfront room.

Can't state how beautiful the views of Bar Harbor are from the rooms. Staff were friendly. Parking is free and convenient. Walk to downtown Bar Harbor is about 30 minutes, there's also a free shuttle (but it's takes a long route). Breakfast was below the standard of the rest of the hotel, food was fine but a bit of a...

Overlooking Frenchman's Bay it offers smashing views and intimate outdoor seating, where every seat faces the Atlantic Ocean. We feature great tasting fresh, seasonal comfort cooking with ingredients that are primarily sourced from local, small scale vendors. Above all you can expect warm, genuine service.
