Amazing ocean-side part based on the pictures (be sure to walk along the ocean on the public path that goes for about a mile and which you can access right from the grounds), but look into where your room is in the hotel. They obviously added on some time ago (maybe 30 years) and put the new parts on the...

Beautiful hotel with incredible history, beauty and exceptional service. I stayed in a room on the second floor with a view of the harbor and pool as the rest of the rooms were already booked in the main inn. Next time I will book earlier so I can be on the waterfront. The rooms are perfect and the housekeeping is...

We stayed here for only one night having missed our cruise ship in NYC. Oceania kindly made arrangements for 37 of us to get to Bar Harbor where the ship was coming in to port on the third day. We were on our own for hotels however. I searched for some place to stay and selected the Bar Harbor Inn....

Topnotch resort. We stayed in the oceanfront lodge....as advertised....our room overlooked the ocean and nearby islands. Watched harbor activity of lobster boats, cruise ships and marine birds and stars at night from our private generous sized balcony. We chose an upper unit but could have stayed in first floor unit also as there were unobstructed views from both levels. Our...

We recently stayed here for a quick three night getaway. The location is perfect, within walking distance to the town and the view from the inn is beautiful. We had one of the rooms that just overlooked the property not an ocean view, those rooms looked amazing. The room was clean and comfortable. My only complaint was some sort of...

The Bar Harbor Inn suited us perfectly for our 4 night stay. We chose the package with the Continental Breakfast, which kept us satisfied well into the day. We were in the ocean view section and it was so nice to see a big cruise ship which (quietly) anchored sometime in the early a.m. There is an excellent walking trail...

Love this inn. Oceanfront is the way to go. We love the third floor (less noise). No elevator! Leave your balcony door open to hear Frenchman's Bay at it's best. Continental breakfast served in this building.

We arrived late at night...in the rain so it kind of felt like a Hitchcock movie during check in...very mysterious and dark. At first blush, it felt like it was dated, old, and lacked charm. But this place really grows on you! The rooms are well kept and more spacious than you realize! We had a second floor room with...

Stayed 4 nights in mid May. Had a room in the Newport Buildings which doesn't have a sea view. Room fine and had everything you would expect, but no character.
