Our family of four (including a 13 year old and 9 year old) spent a week at this hotel in early June. Our room was in the main building on the ground floor, with a walk out to a quaint garden. Included was a very nice continental breakfast served from 7-11 each morning, which was perfect for our early starts. The hotel's location is the best in Bar Harbor, located right at water's edge with terrific views of Frenchman's Bay. From the hotel you have easy walking access to the entire town, and you are a quick 5 minute drive to Acadia National Park (hotel has free onsite parking). While we did not utilize the spa facilities, they appear nice. We did use the pool and hottub, which were a few steps from our room and were quite enjoyable, especially for the kids.
The rooms' decor are classic and somewhat dated, but perfectly fine for our use. We had two queen size beds, and there is a flat screen TV in the room, along with a jetted tub/shower (in bathroom) and ceiling fan in main room. My only complaint was the noise level. The walls are very thin and you can hear the neighbor's phone conversations, as well as every creak of the hotel. When people use the showers in the rooms above and next to you, the pipes make considerable noise. It may be better if you have an upstairs room (not sure).
Overall, the location makes staying here worthwhile.
