We stayed here for 5 days and 4 nights and it was so wonderful. After reading other TripAdvisor reviews we found out that the 1st and 2nd floors have been renovated so we selected the 2nd floor ocean view. Jaw dropping views! We were blown away upon arrival. Made a phone call a few days prior to add an additional...

This is a great little hotel sitting directly on the water and within a short walk of the streets of Bar Harbor. We went in the off season and the pool wasn't open but we had access to a nice indoor pool and hot tub at a nearby 'sister' hotel. Free continental breakfast was a nice addition.

Recently returned from a two night stay here. The historic Main Lodge has a great old Maine Summer vibe. The employees are very welcoming. The lobby had a fireplace going in the evening, free hot beverages, and plenty of seating.Classy without feeling "stuffy". The main old lodge is surrounded by newer two story buildings. An ocean walk follows the coast...

The Bar Harbor Inn is a beautiful property perched right on the edge of Bar Harbor. Our second story room overlooked the ocean, and what a vista it was! Three of stayed there in 2 queens.
