We visited the Bar Harbor Inn and Spa for our 33rd wedding anniversary in September 2013. The hotel came highly recommended by my sister who had stayed there ten years ago. I opted for a waterfront room with a king bed, nice balcony and fabulous views of the water. The staff could not have been nicer and they came in to prepare the room in such a way that we were never inconvenienced. The purpose of our trip was a vacation to Acadia National Park for hiking and the spectacular sunset and sunrise from Cadillac Mountain. Staying at Bar Harbor Inn and Spa made everything within walking distance. The on site restaurant was phenomenal and we both agreed that we had never had such a great meal. Local fare was an easy walk and we walked everyday to keep in shape and enjoy the daily lobster cravings, something we do not get in Northern Va.
Nearby excursions were easy to book and since we were there after Labor Day but before the Oct. holiday, it was not over crowded. Even when the cruise ships came into port, it was not overcrowded. There is so much to do that a week was not long enough. I must give kudos to the staff as it is a first class hotel. The morning breakfast was so much more than a simple continental fare and the morning view gave us time to plan our days events. It was a wonderful vacation and one that I will never forget.
