I would stay in Bar Harbor for three days. Just park your car there and you are all set. You can walk to the shops, restaurants and the water. You can hop on the buses everyday and go into Arcadia National Park. My husband and I hiked two days in the park, ate lobster at the waterfront, browsed the shops, went on a sailboat ride, rented bikes and just had a great time. You will love it there. We ate breakfast at Jordan's also every morning, it is a great place to eat and very friendly.
