We booked this hotel since it was our nearest commute to the Cadillac Mountain and Bar Harbor considering we stayed on the island just for a day. We were traveling from Quebec City and the weather was awful as we were nearing the island and the lady at the front desk was so kind enough to call us and enquire...

Arrived for a 3 night stay and was met with a friendly staff. My room was large, clean and comfortable. Be sure and visit the "Great Room" for evening drinks. Bill Trowell is a very accomplished piano player in the Great Room and loves to take requests - a great way to relax at the end of the day. Breakfast...

We arrived at 2 PM on a Sunday for a 7 day stay late in the season (2 weeks before they closed up shop). They informed us that our room was not ready as 3 PM is normal check in time. We said okay and we would return at about 3 to check in. We had stayed at a Lafayette...

We had a lovely,large room with traditional furniture. There was plenty of room to open both our suitcases (this had been a problem in other hotels). There was also a table and comfortable chairs, and a desk. Our view was of the pool and the harbor. The amenities were top of the line, including cookies and coffee/tea in the late...

The setting and grounds are superb! The staff was kind enough to give us a room in the back building with a great view. The indoor pool area is spotless, the pool warm, the usage low so nice and peaceful.

This is a great place to stay in Bar Harbor. Our room in the main (Mizzentop) building overlooked Frenchman Bay, Bar Island, and the huge cruise ships--great view!. Leave the draperies open and let the morning sun wake you. We had a large double room w/fireplace. There was a double vanity in the bath and a coffee station with mini...

This Inn had large rooms with fireplace and great views of the Harbor!. Couldn't have been happier about the comfort, views and size of rooms. By the way if you are staying in Bar Harbor go to Cafe This Way for Breakfast!

The statements in in the hotel's website were correct including a great view of Frenchman's Bay from our room. The only shortcomings were the continental breakfast which was extremely marginal at best and the restaurant prices which were totally out of line for the quality of the food and facility.

The room was two double beds. It was comfortable but a bit tight. We were on the first floor and it got extremely noisy with the foot falls of those above and also on the walkway out front. The main hotel was nicely appointed. The complimentary breakfast was so so. We had breakfast at the main restaurant one morning and...
