Bar Harbor Inn
Built in 1887, the Bar Harbor Inn offers luxurious, air-conditioned suites that overlook sprawling, beautifully landscaped grounds. The Reading Room boasts picture windows with views of the harbor and Porcupine Islands. On your downtime, recharge at the world class luxury spa, enjoy a leisurely walk along the gracious green lawn, or try the renowned lobster bisques and bakes.
Established in 1883, this historic inn overlooks the placid waters of Northeast Harbor and is adjacent to Acadia National Park. It has 48 rooms—31 in the four-story main inn and 17 in four smaller buildings known collectively as the “Asticou Cottages.” The inn features modern amenities, including a heated swimming pool and a clay tennis court and is home to Peabody’s, an elegant harborside restaurant serving local and regional favorites such as lobster bisque, New England clam chowder, and Napoleons made with fresh Maine blueberries. The beautifully landscaped Azalea Garden and Thuya Garden are within easy walking distance. Both are wonderful destinations.
