Non-Victorian hotels or b&b's

The decor of most of the B&B's and hotels that I have seen online is making me want to throw up. NO FLORAL WALLPAPER AND DOILIES HANGING FROM THE BED CANOPY PLEASE - YUCK! Anyone know a boutique hotel or B&B that has at least somewhat of a modern feel to it?

Given the way you choose to express yourself, perhaps Las Vegas or Myrtle Beach would be more to your liking.

Check out the website sleepbarharbor.com and look at the different inns to find one that suites your tastes. Some examples of more traditional decor and less victorian flowers include Canterbury Cottage, Holland Inn, Moseley Cottage, Bass Cottage and Saltair Inn. I'm sure there are others. Some of the houses are of the Victorian era but the insides are not decorated in a true victorian style.

Welcome,I see that this is your first post on TA.

You will find that destination experts and other members that have visited these destinations will be very willing to help you.

But, that being said, they might hesitate to do so considering your screaming judgment of what some of us love about the area as "YUCK". (You do realize that capital letters means yelling?)

Are you sure Bar Harbor is the place for you? Most New England B&Bs pride themselves on their "charm". Boutique hotels are not commonplace.

Perhaps if you could define your idea of "modern feel" you might find some help.
