“A little gem.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 July 2014

Just home from a family reunion held at the Atlantic Eyrie Lodge. It was the perfect place for us, and definitely met our requirements and exceeded our expectations.

I was in charge of this reunion, and found the Atlantic Eyrie on Trip Advisor over two years ago. All of my interactions with management were pleasant and professional, and it was clear that they welcomed our business and wanted to make us happy. Desk staff is friendly and helpful. The place is family-owned and not a chain, and although the property is not new, it is clear that they have made a commitment to maintenance and upkeep. Bathrooms were clean as a whistle and the towels were nice and fluffy (I hate skimpy towels!) Also, there are no automatic door closers on the doors, so you don't wake up early to the sound of room doors banging shut all over the place (my husband's pet peeve.) Peace and quiet abounded.

New pool and terrace and patio are nice for lounging, and the view is unparalleled.

I have done a lot of travelling and stayed in places that cost a lot more than this one and didn't please me half as much. It is a keeper!

Room Tip: Great views from Room 410!

What a lot of energy it takes to plan a family reunion, good for you! I've done a few of them and finally have realized that it all comes together no matter how much worrying I do! Your review was very detailed and I have to agree with you, those automatic door closers are so disruptive! The comment you made about the maintenance and upkeep was so nice to hear. We have been trying to do improvements winter after winter and we were so happy to get the pool done last year and redo the parking area, etc. this past winter. It is an ongoing project and we so appreciate your taking note of our staff's efforts! Hope you have a lovely summer and congrats on planning your reunion, I'm sure everyone was appreciative! ~Joanne

We spent 5 days in Bar Harbor for a family reunion. This hotel is off the beaten path but an excellent place to stay. The rooms were very clean, bed was great for my poor back, pool was wonderful, breakfast was more than adequate, staff super accommodating, and very peaceful.

Hello,
What fun to have a family reunion on the island. We actually are due for one, just need to get that planning done. Glad you enjoyed the pool, accommodations, quiet location and we appreciate hearing that our staff was "super" accommodating. We are very proud to have so many returning staff each year and they truly are the backbone of our hotel. Thank you for taking the time to review The Eyrie and I hope you had a wonderful family reunion!

We just returned from a wonderful 6 day stay at the Atlantic Eyrie, this was our 2nd stay at the hotel and could not have been more pleased. The staff was friendly and eager to please, the room was clean and spacious. The free breakfast was great, and having the shuttle bus stop in
front of the hotel every 15 minutes to take you into Bar Harbor was so convenient (the traffic in Bar Harbor can get a little crazy). The entrance to Acadia National Park is just down the road. The room has a mini-frig, microwave, and coffee pot (even though you can get free coffee in the
hotel lobby). We would recommend this hotel and would go back again for a 3rd time if we were ever in the area..

Hello,
What a great review. I've always said that one of the best compliments is a repeat guest but I think I should expand on that sentiment to include, "and who also leaves a terrific review on Trip Advisor!" Thanks so very much and we will pass on the positive comment regarding our staff. Have a great rest of the summer and we hope to see you for a third visit!

NOTHING TO ADD TO GREAT REVIEWS.
I was anxious when our car turned into small street before entering Bar Harbor, but it led uphill, and hotel is on the top of it. View is great from the balcony. Room was recently renovated. 307 was the number, and it looked like the tub was recently replaced. Clean, clean.... I stayed Memorial weekend, and did not try a pool. BIG MISTAKE!!! Touched a water om the departure day, it was WARM (not only for pinguins). Breakfast: fresh muffins, hard boiled eggs, toasts. Five deers were making an appearance now and then. THANK YOU, ATLANTIC EYRIE...

Your review made me smile! We do try to keep the pool warm but not too warm as most guests prefer it a little on the cool side as they are usually doing laps, etc. and if the air is warm it is refreshing. Last time I checked there weren't any penguins, like you said, several deer (and the occasional fox with kits) Happy you continued on up the road to our little hilltop overlooking the area and had a nice stay with us on Memorial Day weekend. I hope you get a chance to come back again. Thank you for the review~Joanne

My family of four stayed in a third floor room. Spacious, clean room with comfortable beds. Good breakfast and nice pool. Amazing views. Close to downtown and to the park. There are so many choices in Bar Harbor. I'm glad we chose this one.

Hello,
Yes, you are correct, Bar Harbor has a lot of choices for hotel rooms, from outrageously expensive to inexpensive. We are happy our amenities (view, salt water pool, breakfast,rooms, beds, etc.) were pleasing to you and your family. I hope you got to explore the island and walk around Bar Harbor while you were vacationing. It is such a fabulous spot, we are lucky to live here. Thank you so much for the great review! Have a nice rest of the summer. ~Joanne

We have been going to Bar Harbor for many, many years this is the cleanest, most roomy, comfortable , pet friendly motel we have found.They offer a small complementary breakfast as well.The price and location are excellent. Even though we ran into a problem this year with the hurricane , and they didn't do anything to assist us we will stay there again. Our pets were truly comfortable too.

Room Tip: The first floor is the best choice, if there ever is a power outage you will have easy access to you...

Hello,
We are happy you had a great visit with your pet. Nice to hear positive things about our hotel rooms. Most of us are dog and cat owners here at the hotel so we know the difficulty in finding a clean, nicely appointed hotel room. We are sorry the power went out across Bar Harbor, it was very inconvenient and annoying. This is not a common occurrence and our staff did the best they could under the circumstances. We were disappointed that the power turn on kept being changes and that made it difficult for us to be accurate with that information as it was updated incorrectly by the power company. Glad to hear that doesn't stop you from staying again. Thanks very much.

My wife and I came to Bar Harbor for her birthday weekend and stayed at the Atlantic Eyrie Lodge. The views here are absolutely amazing, words can't begin to explain. The staff is very friendly and knowledgable. The rooms here are spacious and very comfortable. We were minutes away from all the restaurants, shops, and hiking trails. I highly recommend staying here to any one visiting Bar Harbor.

Room Tip: I recommend getting a room on the top floor. The view is absolutely amazing.

Thank you so much for taking the time to post that positive review about our customer service as well as our hotel! We really appreciate it. Hope you get a chance to visit us again. My favorite time is the autumn with the leaves turning spectacular colors. With all the deciduous trees on the island it truly is magical. Take care and thanks again, Joanne
