This hotel is everything you want and more. The location is absolutely perfect, a short walk to anything you want in Bar Harbor and a quick drive to Acadia and all it has to offer. We walked to all the bars and restaurants and down to the harbor. The front desk staff is amazingly helpful. I actually called the hotel with a question the week before our stay and when I arrived the front desk staff remembered speaking to me on the phone. All the front desk staff was available whenever needed and had wonderful recommendations on what to do around town. The rooms are HUGE and well appointed in a bed and breakfast type of way. Speaking of breakfast, the free breakfast here is great, especially considering the covid restrictions that are still in place. There were hot choices that were individually packaged along with great cold items like fresh fruit, yogurt, etc. Also yummy baked items and of course coffee and juices. There is ample parking and being able to park your car and explore town on foot without having to deal with trying to find parking in town is worth its weight in gold. We cannot wait to return to Bar Harbor and this will be our go to hotel for sure! Do not hesitate to book here, you will not be disappointed.

We spent 3’nights with the family and the place was excellent. It is just two blocks away from the downtown chaos but far enough from it if you like walking. We were greeted by front staff and they allowed us to check in early. My kids got a welcome stuffed baby animal (I was told guests get a different one each year).. The rooms was big and quiet and the bathroom and shower were big (nothing better than a hot shower after hiking alAcadia for hours). Breakfast was very good! Definitely the place to stay for us in Bar Harbor!

The hotel was close to everything to see in Bar Harbor. Suite was spacious, room was clean. Pool was exactly what was needed in 90+ temps. Food was average-just post covid rules. Staff was extremely helpful. Excellent property
