Unforgettable trip

Thanks to you all, we had one of our most memorable trip ever to Bar Harbor.

Some points I'd like to mention....

- Edenbrook Motel was good value for money. I'd definitely recommend this.

- It's very cold and windy up in cadillac summit after sunset. Either bundle up or return after sunset. Since we were there till almost 9, we thought of watching the July 4th fireworks from the top.. it's not worth it! One, it started pretty late, Two, it was quite cold and windy even in summer and three, they were so tiny!

- Nature cruise from BH whale watch co was a little too mediocre. We just a saw a couple of eagles, a couple of seals, the egg rock light house and heard a commentary about the millionaires who had their summer homes along the coast and a good lecture about lobsters. The boat stayed pretty far away from the rocks where the seals and eagles were resting that it was quite difficult to see clearly.

- BH is such a beautiful town. You could spend days wandering the streets or just staring at the beautiful ocean and at the boats.

I'm hoping to go back to BH with more time and money!

Hi Sukri,

Thanks for the travel review! Appreciate it. Most don't bother to report back and that's too bad as it could help others planning trips.

In addition, its just fun to read visitors posts about where they've been and stayed, sites they've seen, restaurants they've eaten at, etc.

Glad you had a good time. You'll have to come back next year :).

Good report and thanks for taking time to write it. As Cozyharbor said, very few take the time to write a trip report, yet it's very helpful to readers of this forum.
