We have stayed at several different hotels in Bar Harbor in the summer time, but the Balance Rock Inn by far has the best location! The Inn is directly on the water off the the shore path and very close to all the unique shops and many restaurants. From the start of our stay we were greeted by their friendly and very helpful desk staff and bellmen. We especially enjoyed the cocktail hour with snacks. Our room was spacious and beautifully decorated. It had a working fireplace and 2 person jacuzzi tub...we have rarely ever found this in any other hotel. The Balance Rock Inn is grand yet very charming. We will definitely be returning for our yearly visit!

All rooms and suites have either a king or queen size select comfort bed, a private bath, flat screen television with DVD player, WIFI internet access, individually controlled AC and heat, and most with amazing ocean views!
