Isn't being in Bar Harbor, enough? The breathtaking views, the quaint town and the friendly people. At the end of the road leading into town, you run right into it. A most romantic, timeless and perfectly positioned Bar Harbor Inn. We had the privilige of staying there with my parents, whom were celebrating their 51st wedding anniversary, my sister and her husband. It was an "adults" weekend so to speak!
I love Bar Harbor and I love it even more because of the experience had at the Bar Harbor Inn. Upon entering the grounds, your excitement grows because the views are perfect. Every where you look, it's a panoramic view of the harbor, the stone path where you can walk along the ocean, storefronts and restaurants and the grandness of the historic white building and its yellow umbrella accents.
When you enter the lobby, its charm captures you. The outside grandness matches the inside grandness equally. The restaurant is perfectly, and I mean perfectly, facing the harbor and with windows everywhere, you feel like you are in another place.
The rooms were perfectly clean, what I expected and the bathroom was large and comfortable. We had a balcony, how could I stay there again without one! Classic style and very inviting accomodations.
Our dinner was at sunset and we had the best table in the house... but wait. all tables are the best. Truly. Our service was personal, we felt like we were the only table there as there were servers everywhere but then nowhere. You didn't notice the water being poured in your glass because you were intrigued where that server came from. The food was phenomenal. Service was equal. We returned for breakfast and had the same experience as the prior night. It was all repeated, without effort.
Thank you to the great leadership of Fred Link. Your establishment is as grand as the person that you are. You are a class act. Thank you.
