Balance Rock Inn
Ranked #24 of 41 Hotels in Bar Harbor
Reviewed 15 May 2005

My husband and I stayed there for a weekend getaway. We were a bit disappointed at the "cottage" we stayed in, as it seemed too far from the rest of the property and had a fenced in porch area that was unusable and had no view. Other than that, the property of the main house was beautiful and great for an evening glass of wine on the beach. The location was tops with shopping and dining right down the street. Give it a try, you will have a great time!

The Balance Rock Inn is mostly a four-star property. The common rooms are lovely, particularly the porch, pool area, and lawn that slopes down to Frenchman's Bay. The attentive staff serves a great breakfast. But the guest rooms are very uneven, particularly the suites. Our suite included what is a hallway on other floors, and had so many doors I felt like we were in a Marx Brothers movie. For $425 a night, we expected a lot more.
