We were in Bar Harbor several times this off season (winter and spring) and I have to say that the staff at the Bar Harbor Inn always goes out of their way to be friendly and helpful.

My husband and I drove up to Bar Harbor on our first trip away from our 23 month old as well as our first trip to Maine. We couldn't have been more pleased with our hotel choice.

We enjoyed a quiet, relaxing weekend. Beautiful view of the Bay from our room. The dining in the Reading Room was excellent and the continental breakfast was a great way to start the day. Friendly and comfortable. Bar Harbor is always a great treat and staying at the Inn is the way to go.
