... this fazed no one and I still made it to the train back to Wellington and on to catch a flight up to Auckland.
Auckland, my departure city, a wonderful opportunity to see my friends Terri and Jim O'Hare and experience yet again some very kind Kiwi hospitality. Terri and Jim have been living in Auckalnd ( for just a few months a year ) for quite a long time. I was interested to see what held such an appeal. Terri met ...
... where you will pass many great lobster pounds and seafood restaurants. When you see these great places to eat, you will know that you are getting close. It is a must to eat a lobster before you leave Maine, after all Maine has the best tasting lobster.
If your windows are open as you cross over onto Mount Desert Island, you can smell the clam-flats, which is not necessarily the most appealing smell. I liked smelling it ...
... more hiking. The weather is supposed to be a little cooler, but mostly sunny.
So far the idiots in our government haven't stopped us from seeing the park. We can't visit any visitor's centers, but we can park by them and hike into the park. So that is what we will do. Hopefully they will get this budget passed. ...
... loop called Witches Hole Pond. This ride turns out to be less hilly and much prettier with tons of little lakes/ponds/ stone bridges and just wonderful scenery. Arrive back at car tired but VERY satisfied,, one of the best rides we have ever been on!
This park is a MUST for anyone in this area!
Back to campsite for a refreshing swim and BBQ steak dinner! A perfect day!
... coffee, but also sight seeing. There has to be 100 little shops along this stretch of road every other one carrying exactly the same tourist trap stuff. Every third one we find out later is dog friendly. One even stated it was cat friendly should you find yourself walking your cat up the street. Finally arriving at the wharf in a slight rain reprieve we decided to do our usual walk to the end of the dock. Talk to a few fisherman these ones ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Bar Harbor Grand Hotel
Grand was Great
We had a great stay at this hotel. Great location. Abby, Melinda and Amanda all went out of their way to make us feel welcome and help us with our plans. The package plan is great if you stay 3 nights or more. Includes great food and excursions. Thanks again ladies for all your service.
My husband and I stayed there on their "Grand Escape" package, which included two nights accomodation, a "continental breakfast" that included a wide variety of b-fast items, a wonderful dinner at the elegant Bar Harbor Inn, a harbor cruise on the Mary Todd, a four masted schooner, and a $20 gift certificate to their gift shop. Not only was this an EXCELLENT deal, but the hotel is lovely, the room was beautiful, and the staff at the front desk, especially Abby Johnson, was extremely warm, friendly and helpful. My sister-in-law had called ahead of time to arrange for a dinner gift certificate at one of the local restaurants as an anniversary gift for us, and the hotel staff even offered to go pick it up at the restaurant for her to make sure it was there in time for our arrival! (Mainers are such nice people!) The hotel is right in town on Main Street, just up about a 10 minute walk to the waterfront. Right across the street from the hotel is a dead end road, at the end of which is a path to the shoreline walk-way. It's such a nice little walk, and brings you around the front of the Bar Harbor Inn, and its beautiful grounds, flower gardens and waterfront. What a treat. Thank you
I picked this hotel for a 4 night family trip (we have a 5 and 7 yr old) to Bar Harbor and Acadia National Park and could not be more happy with the Bar Harbor Grand Hotel. Its downtown location was perfect for nighttime shopping, spontaneous ice cream trips and also made it very easy to find a restaurant for dinner. The hotel itself is very new (built 2003) so the rooms and bathrooms were modern and spotless. Other family friendly touches include: laundry room, empty fridge in the rooms, a continental breakfast with an array of options, and an outdoor pool. Finally, the service was very friendly. At $195 a night I thought it was a perfect compromise between the much more pricey waterfront hotels (which didn't necessarily look nicer other than the view) and othermotel/inns which were not as conveniently located. We had a wonderful time and would stay there again in a heartbeat!
Super stay at tha Grand
We stayed twice,once in 2003,and just this month,both stays were packages.the hotel is new and the staff cant do enough for you as the customer.The rooms are clean,modern,with the best of furnishings and bedding,as well as top name bathroom appliances.The hotel is walking distance from the center of town.No traffic lights and I dont think anyone sounded their horn while we were there.
My husband and I just returned from our first trip to Bar Harbor. We stayed two nights at the Bar Harbor Grand and have absolutely no regrets! It has by far the best location, with only a two minute walk to everything! Shops, restaurants, shore paths, and the water of course. And a short drive to Acadia. After actually getting up there you realize how far away the other hotels are from the downtown area.
Our recent stay in June at the Bar Harbor Grand Hotel was excellent. My wife and I had never been to Bar Harbor and had decided to incorporate a visit to it and Acadia National Park into our planned trip elsewhere in Maine for a college reunion. After extensive research on Trip Advisor and other sources, we selected the hotel for its convenient location, cost, room size and amenities, such as complimentary continental breakfast, elevator, A/C, exercise room, etc.
After an uncomfortable 4 days camping my family and I retreated to the comfort of the Bar Harbor Grand Hotel for our last day & night of our vacation. What a wonderful relief and comfort., Clean, well staffed, nice continental breakfast. My famly had no complaints. I however would have preferred and softer bed. We will return.
My girlfriend and I stayed at the Bar Harbor Grand in May of 2005. We purchased a very reasonable package deal that included two nights, a two-hour schooner cruise of the harbor, and an excellent dinner at the Bar Harbor Inn's Reading Room.
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Bar Harbor Grand Hotel in late May. We found the hotel to be a welcome respite from a Nor'easter which inundated the area with rain, wind, and cold temperatures during our four night stay.
Clean, convenient and a good value.
We stayed 5 nights in the newly opened Grand Hotel in May 2004. While the hotel doesn't have many of the upscale amenitites you'll find in a lot of nicer hotels, the rooms are clean and well equipped. The Staff was friendly and nice. The continental breakfast was average. I guess I can't get past plastic plates and utensils and styrofoam coffee cups. They did have a good variety of fresh fruit, juices, cereals, breads and muffins.
For the cost, it's a nice place. We paid $89.00 per night, which is a good value given the location and the fact that it's downtown Bar Harbor. Centrally located on Main Street, it's just a short walk to all of the action. I would probably stay there again if I returned to Bar Harbor.
