The Bar Harbor Inn is the former home of one of the many rich and famous people who once summered along the bay. It's a super structure that has been maintained perfectly with all modern amenities in addition. We went in April, days before the summer season began and many restaurants were closed. We were mostly alone when we walked...

We have stayed at the BH Inn from the 1990's-- almost every year. Our most recent visit was earlier this May, 2017. We stayed in the Oceanfront Lodge again after a number of years staying in the Main Inn. We had come to like the convenience of the rooms in the Main Inn, but had also loved the great views...

This is the second time I've stayed at the Bar Harbor Inn. The service is excellent and although the rooms are typical, they are spotlessly clean, the beds are comfortable and I wanted to steal the pillows! Book a package because the deal we got was unbelievable. The restaurant at the hotel had mouthwatering breakfasts and the dinner we had...

Just returned from Bar Harbor. This was our first trip and will return. The Bar Harbor Inn was everything you could ask for. Great room, fantastic view and excellent service. Had the morning breakfast package. Food was excellent. Must have the eggs benedict with lobster! Mike provided great wake up service. Had a wonderful evening meal of filet mignon and...

We ate at Terrace Grill and had the very best in views, ambiance and food. Will, the chef, came to meet us at the table. He went out of his way to be friendly and make sure we had great food. The bouillabaisse meal and lobster with spaetzle meal were exceptional!!! Be sure and finish with the Maine Wild Blueberry...

Excellent Hotel. Better and elegant dining room. Shame to see at dinner man wearing Bermuda short. Friendly staff and crew serving at the Restaurants. Nice spa. Good treatments. Bar Harbor and Acadia national park both beautifully and worthwhile

My wife & I stayed at The Bar Harbor Inn (BHI) for four nights twice during the summer of 2016 -- July & September. In July, we stayed in the Oceanfront lodge on the second level, and then in September we had two different rooms, one in the Oceanfront Lodge on the first floor and then a room on the...

The ocean or harbor facing rooms have great views and the location is very central to Bar Harbor. The rooms are not very well noise insulated, which is an issue with high occupancy in season. The continental breakfast included in the package in the oceanfront rooms is basic and the breakfast room is bare bones. The main restaurant (Reading Room),...

This was our first stay at the Bar Harbor Inn, and we will definitely return. I didn't know what to expect when told to drive to the back parking lot, and realized there is an additional building to the hotel. The outside stair carpeting appeared to be worn, but once we opened the door to the room, it was plain...

First, know that the rates in April are excellent for the Bar Harbor Inn and quite affordable for the view alone, so this review is not intended for those staying in summer at triple the rate of what we paid. We stayed in the Oceanview, first floor,which is a separate building from where you check in and you should definitely...
