We love this place. It is so convenient, clean and charming. We stayed in the Dorr Mountain suite and it was so comfortable for 2 couple's. Great beds and super clean place. The walkability cannot be beat. If you are entertaining a trip to Bar Harbor you cannot go wrong with this place. Step from town and the water..

Stayed in the Mt Dorr suite. Very nice beds. Televisions in every room. Convenient location. Friendly staff. Didn't have but one night there. Came in late and left early. They had bikes for guests which would have been a plus in summer.

While I stayed for a quick overnight, this place is wonderful and quaint. The front porch just calls to you and the staff is A+; actually the most friendly people I have met. Very helpful and guided me with options for hiking, driving in Acadia and eating. Really a wonderful place.

We stayed here in the winter. The owner was very attentive to making sure guests were warm and safe--sanded and shoveled after a wee ice coating. Our windshield was cleared of snow in the morning. First place I have ever stayed that had a special "makeup" washcloth, a brilliant idea. Room was very warm, clean. Recommendations for open dining options...

Old captain's home; very New England with a welcoming porch. Queen size room is on the small side, but definitely adequate. They have a computer/printer nook on the first floor, a book nook, and coffee/tea and lovely muffins & pastries for breakfast. During the winter, the first floor suite is used as a lounge; very comfortable with a TV, table...

We had a room downstairs with King bed and full bath that was quiet and comfortable. The hotel is "vintage" with 18 rooms, and lots of charm. They have coffee and pastries in the morning...and a fabulous location. We could walk everywhere, and the staff was friendly and helpful.

My boyfriend and I stayed at the Acadia Hotel over Veterans Day weekend. We would recommend it to anyone and are planning on returning again. Service was fantastic, rooms were beautiful and clean, and it is the perfect location to town. Peter was extremely helpful and guided us on trails at the park and local recommendations.
