We just spent the weekend here and the views are really gorgeous. Rooms are spacious, beds are comfortable, great location for walking around to shop. However, I felt I could only give 3 stars on this one for a few reasons. First of all, the bathroom countertop had coffee spills on from the last person who stayed, along with several... More

Rooms adequate, little balcony overlooking harbor small but nice, breakfasts great as are all meals we had there, handy to down town so parking at Inn a benefit, staff friendly and helpful, outdoor pool nice when warm enough to enjoy especially after traipsing through Acadia NP all day

Bar Harbor is surrounded by Frencman's Bay, the beautiful Atlantic Ocean and the awe- inspiring Arcadia National Park. We love mountains and the sea, and Bar Harbor offers both! If you are seeking a perfect place to enjoy really good food, a quaint New England town, and majestic scenery, Bar Harbor is the place for you.

Had breakfast in the main dining room which has 180% views over the harbour. Best breakfast cooked to order I have had in New England on this trip. Bar staff not very inviting. One putting... More

Book early in order to get a room on the water. Gorgeous views of the harbor. Great location, close to town. You can walk to most anything. Really nice lobby, always has hot drinks- tea, coffee, etc.-- for self serve. Apples and cookies at times too. Nice touch. The front desk staff made some great recommendations on places to eat...

It was a last minute decision to go to Bar Harbor and we didn't make any reservations. It was a great time to visit the area, end of the season and got some good bargains.

The Bar Harbor Inn is by far one of my favorite Inns. The Oceanfront Lodge offers a fantastic view of sunrises, lobster boats going to and fro, birds, and explorations of the shore when the tide is out. Breathing in the fresh air, enjoying nature and people watching from the private deck was very relaxing. The Inn is extremely convenient... More
