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...

This hotel had it all. The king sized bed was comfy and had more than enough pillows. The bathroom was large and well appointed. Our balcony overlooked the water and glorious foliage on the hillside. In the evening there was a piano bar in the "Great Room". This featured a lit fire, loveseats and sofas in arranged in small conversation...

Beautiful views from our room. Good location, friendly staff, nice room. Continental breakfast was a joke, not to many options and closed at 9 even on weekends. We had a load squeak in our bathroom floor that was very annoying, felt sorry for the people below us.

We stayed second week of October and the color was at peak in Maine. The view from the 3rd floor mesintop(sp) room was lovely. There was a gas fireplace, large bathroom and continental breakfast available everyday. The only downside was when you opened the balcony french doors there was a lot of traffic noise from below. Other than that -...

We spent 4 nights at the Bluenose Inn. Our room was on the 3rd floor which offered beautiful views. The room was large, clean and comfortable. Though it was somewhat dated. The small refrigerator is located under the sink which was a pain to get in and out of. The indoor pool area was very nice. The continental breakfast area...

The Blue Nose Inn is a wonderful place to stay. We just spent five great days at the Inn. This was our fifth year staying there. Everything about the Inn is great. At night there is a wonderful piano player in the Great Room, his name is Bill Trowell. He is a very talented man, and so nice. I have...
