We will be visiting The Bar Harbor Inn for the third time this May. We have been to Bar Harbor four times and found the Bar Harbor Inn on our second visit and haven't stayed anywhere else since. We typically stay in May to celebrate our anniversary and we enjoy how much quieter Bar Harbor is this time of year and enjoy exploring Acadia before the peak season crowds come. We have had nothing but wonderful experiences at the Inn. The first time we we stayed in the Ocean Front Lodge and our room was perfect. We loved sitting on our private balcony overlooking beautiful Frenchman's Bay. The second year we were on more of a budget and stayed in the Newport Building. We feel like we got what we paid for and the room was more than adequate but we missed being oceanfront. We also felt the room was a bit dated but it was priced accordingly and was a wonderful way to have a great experience on a budget. This year we booked again in the Oceanfront Lodge.
The free breakfast is wonderful and fuels us for an entire day in the park. The waterfront terrace wasn't open last time we were there but it was the first year and we had a blast having afternoon cocktails on the water. We love walking the trail behind the property that follows the shore line. Most importantly for us is the location. We can walk to all the restaurants and shops in town Bar Harbor.
We have recommended to all our friends going to Bar Harbor that this is where they should stay. We look forward to being back in May to celebrate our 7th anniversary.
