We enjoyed a quiet, relaxing weekend. Beautiful view of the Bay from our room. The dining in the Reading Room was excellent and the continental breakfast was a great way to start the day. Friendly and comfortable. Bar Harbor is always a great treat and staying at the Inn is the way to go.

This was our 4th stay at the Bar Harbor Inn on a 3 night Island Escape package in the spring.

Even though I hadn't booked our two couples as traveling together, Brittiany managed to put us next to each other after a...

What an amazing hotel!! We stayed in a oceanview room and it was so beautiful. The most peaceful place I've ever stayed. The hotel is pricey and the rooms are dated but they more than make up for it with their quaint charm of days gone by. The complimentary breakfast buffet is very good with ocean views.
