This past August I took a road trip with my 10-year old daughter from Booklyn NY to Acadia National Park. The Bar Harbor Motel was recommended highly in a guide book and we decided to give it a try. We were not disappointed. The rooms were clean and cozy and situated back off the road and bordered by woods in the back. One morning right outside our door we saw a deer grazing at the edge the forest.
Our room had a shared patio where I was able to roll out a mat and do some yoga out in the crisp, fresh morning air. And we were delighted to discover that the property is situated right next to a trail that leads onto Acadia National Park Carriage Roads. We had our bikes with us and were able to walk right out our door and be on the trail in minutes.
We enjoyed the heated pool, too. It was the perfect way to wind down after hiking and biking. There were lots of other families and kids there and the atmosphere was friendly and relaxed.
The staff were friendly and welcoming and very helpful in providing information about how to get around. The free loop bus stops right in front of the motel and it takes just a few mintues from there to downtown Bar Harbor to connect with other loop buses and restaurants and shops, etc.
All in all it was a lovely, memorable stay.
