The grounds are just incredible with carefully tended to flower beds and a very nice, in the season, gazebo. The hotel room in the building across the way was very...

We had the pleasure of being guests at the Bar Harbor Inn for the Thanksgiving holiday. The grounds are beautiful and there is so much history to the Inn. You can feel it...

This trip was a last minute adventure, but we were still able to get a room on the second floor (albeit, sans balcony, but still a great view) of the old building which I highly recommend (...old, original building...

Just returned from a night at the Bar Harbor Inn and absolutely loved it. The reception was warm and inviting, with a large crackling fire and friendly desk staff.

I've been visiting this establishment for approximately 12 years and the service, staff and hotel are fantastic. The staff are always friendly and very helpful from the moment you arrive until the moment you leave. The views are so spectacular. The Reading Room for dining is great.
