Spent the weekend at the Bar Harbor Inn and it was indeed beautiful. We were blessed with beautiful clear skies which created spectacular waterfront views!

While we did enjoy ourselves, I must say, ...when we discovered that the restaurant AND bar were not open, we were a bit disappointed. I called in reservations and was not told that when I called. Not sure if we paid reduced rates but I will research that further.

Secondly, the furniture, bathrooms and TV options could use some updating. And lastly, I’m from NY and I use milk in my tea!! Coffee and tea were available 24/7 in the lobby but, no milk!!!

Again, we spent a lovely weekend in Bar Harbor.

Restaurant and Hotel not to be beat!!! The food was amazing and everyone we dealt with was friendly, and helpful! The spa was incredibly clean and wow did the people there do an incredible job! The vi...ew. There are no words for it. Maybe spectacular but truly that even doesn't do it justice. The same goes for all of my photos... they do no justice to the absolute breathtaking colors, relaxing atmosphere and special place that The Bar Harbor Inn truly is. Go there. NOW

They are seasonal so it books up quickly!

Best place to stay in Bar Harbor. Wonderful service and rooms are always clean and updated with quality items and decor. The Inn food is always excellent and presented well.
Breakfast is a great mixt...ure as you can grab what you want and head out for an early morning hike.
Been coming to Maine and Bar Harbor for over 30 years and the inn and people are like visiting a true friend.

We just had dinner there. The atmosphere and view were 5 star. The wait staff was top notch, and the wine list was good to very good. The sorbet between appetizer and main was refreshing and classy.... The pianist playing softly in the background was quite nice (don't forget to tip the hard working musicians wherever you go). I did not particularly care for my vegetarian main dish (mushroom and spinach gnocchi), however. See More

Outstanding Inn in Bar Harbor, Maine. Acadia and all of Mt. Desert Island in the backyard. Enjoy the company of guests visiting Maine, the Staff and tasty food. Leave your cell phone and IPad home, th...e view and sea air will more than compensate. See More

The staff were friendly, the food was delicious, and we had an amazing time. We were married here back a few years and loved the experience then too. Coming back now and having a meal in the Reading R...oom really reminded us how special the Bar Harbor Inn is. See More

Booked 4 rooms here for myself and friends. Garden/pool view/double queens in the Inn. As a travel agent, I book this grand dame of Bar Harbor with confidence. Never a complaint about staff/rooms/ Location is the best. Trust me on this. I've returned 9 times over the years. Thanks for another wonderful visit. See More

One of the most spectacular and elegant places you will ever stay, the location could not have been any better Grand rooms. This place was impeccable. And very clean ,spotless. Every maroon could pass... a white glove test. Every day you were getting the Royal Treatment I truly cannot wait to come back to this beautiful place See More

The Bar Harbor Inn is an incredible place to stay. My Boyfriend Tony brought me to Bar Harbor for My Birthday and we stayed from July 1 to July 7, 2017 and we couldn't be happier. Our ocean view was b...reathtaking, the room was beautiful and very clean, the grounds we very well manicured, the food at The Terrace Grille was amazing, the fireworks were incredible and the staff were warm, friendly, so nice and outstanding.
One gentleman in particular was Walter. He was an older man with an Amazing Smile. When we first arrived at the Inn Walter greeted us with a warm smile and a "Good Afternoon, Have A Good Day." Every time we would leave the hotel Walter was always outside working and would always engage in a small conversation with Us.
The room and the view was gorgeous but I think that it was The staff that made Our stay that much more amazing. Walter and all the staff are a testament to GREAT Hospitality.
We would recommend Everyone to stay here when you visit Bar Harbor.

You pay for the view and the service of the staff. Rooms are your standard hotel room with a balcony. We were a late check in and "stole a room" for 324 after tax. We got a standard two queen room wit...h a view. If you want a king bed or a jacuzzi room sell a kidney. The food was very small portions and fairly mediocre at a high price. They did resolve our issues with the food without an actual complaint being made or us asking to talked to anyone, the servers just saw we weren't terribly happy and took care of it on thier own. They had a nice pianist in the dinning room. The facility was clean and nice. Walls are very thin so you can hear all the rooms around you in the main inn where we stayed. Breakfast was a bit of a let down, great view but small selection mostly just cereal, some fruit, toast, hard boiled eggs and yogurt. Overall I would stay again I guess, but you can a lot more for your dollar elsewhere. See More

We have been repeat guests to the Bar Harbor Inn for several years now. We stay in the Oceanfront Lodge. We always thoroughly enjoy our stay. This year, we were pleasantly surprised with the upgrades the room and balcony. The balcony rungs were replaced with glass for a more unobstructed view, new outside seating and table, inside new carpeting and drapes, and new lamps with USB PORTS, and extra charging stations behind the TV. I also noticed a new hook outside of the bathroom area. Kudos! You seemed to know exactly what would make our stay that much more enjoyable.... and the "welcome back" bag with water bottles and goodies was a nice touch. Impressive. The only thing that would make our stay even better would be improved internet service to share our experiences with family and friends. Otherwise, spot on! We will see you in November! See More
A stroll through the gardens is a relaxing way to begin your day!
It is another beautiful fall day here on Frenchman Bay! Perfect for biking, sailing, strolling the shore path or joining us for a meal at the Terrace Grille.
Winter has finally made its way to Bar Harbor!

Another beautiful winter day here in Bar Harbor! After more snow all day yesterday, this morning was incredibly beautiful and another example of the unique beauty of this island.

Having said that...we're still here counting down the days until summer!

Have you ever seen it like this? Winter in Acadia is beautiful!

Thunder Hole is beautiful in the summer, but it's spectacular when it's frozen in the winter!

Here are some beautiful photos of the blizzard hitting the shores of Bar Harbor and the Inn yesterday from local resident Matthew Hochman. Matthew captures the the essence of the storm beautifully. We are grateful that we had no negative impacts on power or safety for most homes and businesses here. Just a nice think blanket of snow and ice to keep us covered for a while longer this winter.

We hope all of you are safe and warm from the storm. We know a lot of our guests come from areas also hit hard by the storm and hope you all made it out with just some extra shoveling.

Merry Christmas from your friends at the Bar Harbor Inn!

Today we say goodbye to an exceptional man. David J Witham began this company 30 years ago in Bar Harbor and built a community and family around his passion. H...e was an inspiring mentor, fearsome leader and savvy business man who led this company with a firm hand and soft heart. While many of us have entertaining stories, lesser known is the immense amount of compassion he had for his employees and the community, often going to great lengths to support both.

For employees and community members who were not able to attend the funeral today, there will be a Celebration of Life to be held in the spring.

David leaves a legacy of exacting standards, exceptional service and loyal, dedicated employees. We will all miss him greatly.

Rest in peace, Mr. Witham.

As we enter into the brisk and frosty mornings with winter nearing, we have started some of the work on our exciting plans for 2018! In May of next year we will be opening a brand new look for the Terrace Grille. While we'll keep the same trademark look of umbrellas, and beautiful ocean views, we'll be upgrading the entire outdoor dining experience. It's an exciting project we are looking forward to sharing with all of our guests in the coming season!

For the local area residents and guests walking the shore path, there are no current changes to the accessibility of the path and you can still walk by without any challenges. We apologize in advance for the extra noise during your walk, we'll be done as soon as we can and appreciate everyone's patience. We hope to see you all next spring on the new Terrace Grille!
