My husband and I spent the last weekend at the Bar Harbor Inn. The service at this Inn was outstanding. The check in was easy. Everyone at the Inn was very helpful and courteous. The restaurant food was excellent. The staff in the restaurant was polite and went above and beyond to make sure everything was perfect. The rooms were clean. I highly recommend a visit to the Inn.

Room Tip: I found all the room were quiet. The Inn was filled.

We prefer to stay in the main building because of the atmosphere. A wonderful lobby with fireplace, coffee, hot chocolate and cookies. Just a great place to relax. Enjoy their fantastic free breakfast and enjoy the beautiful views while you eat. You can sit outside or inside, whichever you prefer.

We ahve stayed there three times and drove there all the way from Tennessee just to be there for our anniversary in May. We are ready to go back!!!! We miss it.

Check in was great, the women who checked us in was pleasant, welcoming and informative. This always sets the tone for us! We stayed in an ocean front room (room 402), the rooms are a little dated (for my taste), but others would refer to this as "charm." Overall clean room (however, obvious signs of wear/tear), the best part was the balcony, sitting outside in the morning and evening enjoying the views. Location was great, parked the car and walked around town. Had lunch at the restaurant, was good, with great views.

We stayed at the Oceanfront Lodge at the Bar Harbor Inn. It was fantastic being at the center of town with wonderful views of Frenchman's Bay. The accommodations are top-notch. The continental breakfast is splendid. The Reading Room Restaurant provides top-notch service along with amazing food. We could not ask for a better place to stay. We will be returning!

Room Tip: In the Oceanfront Lodge, we found the 3rd floor rooms to be the best. No one above you and near the...

Stayed here for four days and the food was wonderful, the Reading Room Restaurant service was exceptional, especially Wayne from Jamaica.

Oceanview rooms are very nice with good and quiet climate control system.

Classy place all around.

Room Tip: Oceanviews are very nice rooms. They generally face north or northeast so the sun's afternoon he...

This was our third annual trip to the Bar Harbor Inn and it was spectacular. Not only is this historic Inn on a wonderful point overlooking the best views in the area but the amenities, staff and service are exemplary. The everyday continental breakfast is as close to a full service table it is crazy and the Reading Room Restaurant is “white linen tablecloth top shelf for every meal too. I wait at least two if not three years to truthfully comment and this place and all their people are a “must see and stay” location in one of the nation’s neatest and most scenic/historic anywhere.
