We stayed at the Balance Rock for three days. The location and views were perfect. The room was nice, bathroom was a little cramped but adaquate. Just about everything in Bar Harbor was within walking distance, restaurants and shopping. Decided to take it easy one night and ate in the bar, the food was very good and the staff was very nice and helpful. You just need to remember that the place is 100 years old.
