Their advices on vendors and timelines were invaluable! We were relaxed and happy all the wedding day! Highly recommend Bar Harbor Inn for any...

We came to the inn with our college aged daughters to visit Acadia. We try to find condos when traveling or suites if staying in a hotel or inn so we are together. The BH inn has suites with two levels that were ideal for us - a queen bed with bathroom, desk & nice sitting area on the main...

Right in the village, walking distance to shops and restaurants. Spectacular views from our room, very nice restaurant on the property, good continental breakfast. The only downside was that the housekeeping was not really up to standard. The ice bucket still had water in it when we arrived, and the coffee maker did not get attention unless we left the...

We have just spent three days at the Bar Harbor Inn and we enjoyed it as much as we always do. We stayed in the Oceanfront Lodge and had the water right outside our balcony. The Terrace restaurant had opened and it is the best spot to watch life on the water while having very good food. We are looking...

I can't say enough great things about this hotel and staff! Rooms are nice size, ask for bay view - it's worth it! Close enough to docks, shopping and restaurants for easy access but far enough away that you don't have added noise. Do NOT confuse this with their sister hotel - Bar Harbor Grand Hotel - which is nice...

Bar Habor was the third resort on our trip. We started at the Waldorf in New York, drove up to New Hampshire to the Omni Mount Washington and then on up to Main to the Bar Harbor Inn. I seem to write "excellent" a lot in my reviews! I guess the reason is that we do a lot of research...

Our trip to Bar Harbor was just an extension of a trip to Boston for our son's graduation, but his mother and I had never been to Maine and so chose to spend a few days here as well.
