Our only complaint is that we could not stay longer! We had Room 304 which had a sauna in the bathroom and a fabulous ladder in the bedroom that led to a trapdoor in the roof. Once this was lifted we found ourselves on a private "Captain's Deck" on the top of the Inn with breathtaking views over the pool, lawns and gardens right out to the ocean. This room is located in the original "cottage" section of the Inn, and every room on each floor was sumptuous, elegant and absolutely beautiful! I felt like I was a character in The Great Gatsby or staying with a beloved old Great Aunt. The breakfast knocked our socks off...delicious. The Balance Rock Inn is also perfectly situated to explore Bar Harbor. Can't wait to return.
