We've been to Bar Harbor many times but this was our first stay at the Blue Nose. We were not disappointed. We had a room on the first floor and still had a view of Frenchman's Bay. The room was nice with a large bathroom. We had good meals at the Looking Glass Restaurant. They have an outdoor deck with...

We've been coming to Bar Harbor for over 20 years, and we always stay here (even before "here" existed)! We stay on the 4th floor, and we love the view of the bay. My wife gets up at 4 AM to see "first light" across the ocean, and the earliest sunrise in the USA at around 5! Of course, I'm...

My friends and I stayed here for 3 days/2 nights for a quick getaway and we absolutely loved it! It was clean, spacious, and all of the staff were so friendly and helpful. We did dine at the "Looking Glass" restaurant where the food and our waiter was really good! I read from previous reviews that it was pricey and...

This is a very large summer hotel lying on the cost north of the town. We got allocated a nice room in the main building with a very spacious bathroom, a balcony with excellent view over the tree tops to the fjord, where cruise ships anchored up for visits in Bar Harbor. The hotel has its restaurant placed on the...

We stayed at the Bluenose Inn for just one night in Oct. 2016. 2 adults and 2 kids (ages 7 and 10). The views, if you can manage a room on the second floor of the building nearest the exit, are unmatched. It is absolutely gorgeous. The indoor pool and hottub were great, as well. Our kids had a blast...

The Bluenose Inn has a good location with views of Frenchman’s Bay, and is only a mile from Bar Harbor’s town center and an easy drive in the opposite direction to the Hulls Cove entrance to Acadia National Park. The inn is very dated but seems to be well maintained. I would describe the décor as 1980’s Best Western –...

We loved our room with its incredible view of the water! No complaints at all, and especially enjoyed the piano entertainment in the evening. We were able to walk downtown (about a mile each way) and enjoy all Bar Harbor has to offer.
