We took the Ocean Path Trail from Otter Point to Sand Beach. It was a beautiful hike of just over 2 miles along the rocky coast of the Atlantic Ocean. There were several coves and one place called Thunder Hole where the water comes into the rocks and bounces off the rocks making a sound just like thunder.
We had taken our lunch and as we were eating we watched some rock/cliff climbers. It was cool to watch but isn't ...
... for me to get to see this from every angle, but then inside of the bomber doors are signatures and comments of former airmen and fighters that range clear up to 93 years old. This plane does still fly. In fact, it flies right over our camp sight every day! Tickets are only $500.00 per person!
We drove around town a little bit before going to get our lobster for the night. (We have had them every night we have been here in Maine except for the first night.) ...
... for a minute until one of the men who worked there noticed us in our confusion and directed us over to him to order lobsters. He opened a huge livewell full of lobster; he had smaller/medium ones on one side and the monsters were on the other. One thing we enjoyed learning about Maine is that they have strict rules on how the lobster can be fished, one rule being they have to reach at least 7 years of age before they can be pulled from the ocean. It is a ...
... high point. There is ample parking and it was best to get there early because tour buses begin to arrive and then you have all those annoying older folks who just mosey along and don’t seem to care if they get in your way! I enjoy the fact that older people, or any people for that matter, like to travel but bus loads of them just drive me nuts. Anyway, there is a very nice paved walkway around the summit area that is not too strenuous. ...
... flooded our ears. The rocks piled all along the shores in Maine and I made a rather advanced jungle gym for the adventurous souls. I climbed over the rocks and swam to a rock that sat in the middle of the water, where I climbed up it and sat as the waved crashed against it. It was simply beautiful! Following that day we went to jones pond and then to Acadia national park ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Anne's White Columns Inn Bar Harbor
Bar Harbor + White Columns Inn = Great Vacation
We just spent 4 days with Bob and Anne and had a terrific time. They are extremely personable hosts with a wealth of knowledge about the area. Their suggestions helped to make a great vacation even better. The inn is well kept and no detail is overlooked. As other reviewers have stated, you are truly made to feel "at home". We'll look forward to our next visit.
Rest and Relaxation
Rest and Relaxation are two of the many things that you will find at the White Columns Inn. We are repeat customers and for the past 5 years have returned to this top rated B&B. It's right in the heart of downtown Bar Harbor with only a short walk to the restaurants and shops. Ann and Bob are wonderful hosts, and they have made the White Columns Inn feel like a "Second Home". They offer great advice as to where to eat, and they have a wealth of information about the local area and the activites to do.

Recommend Anne's White Columns
Spent a week at the White Column Inn. Everything was delightful, from the hosts to the guests. We met wonderful people and had great conversations with our hosts. Strongly recommend to anyone.
A very comfortable, convenient, friendly downtown Inn
We found this place while staying up on the hill outside downtown opposite the Colllege of The Atlantic. The White Columns is a short walk to all the nice restaurants..has a nightly wine and cheese party and a wonderful breakfast all included at a reasonable price. The owners and guests are friendly and interesting and offer great clues as what is around Acadia Park and Bar Harbor. It is a great place for adults to relax!
This B&B has to be in the top 5% of all the B&B's in America. Excellent breakfasts followed by wine and cheese every afternoon. It is extremely comfortable & relaxing. The owners (Anne and Bob) are very engaging, friendly and helpful. Anne's White Columns Inn has a unique past but you'll have to visit for the story.
Great Vacation Spot!
Anne's White Columns Inn is a the best place to stay in Bar Harbor. We are repeated guests and can't say enough about the impecible hospitality.
The rooms are always comfortable and clean after a days outting on the Maine coast. The staff are very informative of local goings on and are willing to go out of their way to make sure that your welcome.
Delightful, Comfortable, Terrific Location, CLean, Super Hosts!
I have had the pleasure of staying at WCI on several occasions and am planning to go back in June again.
It is a delightful stay. Each room is individually furnished with specially sought out furniture to fit the theme of the room. It's perfectly located in Bar Harbor with a short walk to the center of town.
The home town hospitality of our hosts Anne and Bob Bahr is just what one wants at the end of a long journey or a day of sight seeing.
The nightly wine and cheese on the deck is a perfect way to relax before heading out to dinner. The continental breakfasts with home baked goods make it convenient to get an ealry start to your day without having to make that extra stop for breakfast.
Bob and Anne take pride in being you hosts and you will look forward to the next stay with them!
Anne's White Columns Inn--- Heaven away from Home!
I have been visiting Bar Harbor for over 15 years on an almost yearly basis. I stayed at Anne's White Columns Inn the first year, and have NEVER gone anywhere else!!! Anne and Bob make you feel like part of their family, and provide the utmost in creature comfort for you! I have always looked forward to Anne's homemade breakfast muffins or breads, plus the wine and cheese at Happy Hour on the porch makes it easy to unwind at the end of a long day of sightseeing or shopping. They are locals with a wealth of information regarding the area, and have always provided excellent guidance regarding the restaurants, shopping and attractions. I can tell you most of the patrons return yearly, and you will only know why after you have been there!
Great place to stay
Anne and Bob are great hosts,. The rooms are clean and the Inn is close to downtown (just a short walk away). The hosts are very knowledgable about the area and can tell you all of the best places to eat!!
