After a very rainy drive through New Hampshire (no stopping for pictures) we were off to our first lighthouse. The Headlight lighthouse is the one you see in all those beautiful pictures of the rugged Maine coast. It's located just south of Portland, and even in a driving mist, was pretty spectacular to behold. Along side the lighthouse was a large …
We were dropped in the town for a free afternoon. John went on a boat trip and I chose to just mosey around doing nothing much. Doing nothing much turned out to be perishing. I had my rain jacket on and the wind went straight through. I went into a shop and bought a sherpa! Translates to a zip up sweatshirt hoodie with thick fleece lining. Out on the street a man ...
... We drove past George W Bush's holiday home while he has prime position and GWB snr was in residence. The clue was security everywhere. Also when John and I were getting our lunch (with our tour name badges on) the lady asked what we had seen and there happened to be a policeman there and he confirmed be was there.

If we had more time here we would have used the free bus system that will take you and drop you where ever but I think a lot of time is spent waiting on a bus to show up. If we get here again I want to spend a lot of time outside the main loop of the park exploring some of the other towns on the island like Northport or Seal Harbor. Next we went up Cadillac Mountain ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Bar Harbor Manor
We just came back from a wonderful stay at the Bar Harbor Manor. We highly recommend it to everyone!
On our second trip to Acadia, we decided to select an inn rather than a chain hotel. We absolutely chose the right place! First of all, Bar Harbor Manor was LESS expensive than several chain hotels located in the area. In addition, its proximity to the downtown area was fantastic. The hotel is located on a very quiet residential street. However, we could easily walk to the shops, restaurants and docks; this made our stay much more enjoyable because parking is notoriously difficult in Bar Harbor! There is an also entrance to Acadia within minutes of the hotel. We drove, but it would be possible to walk into the park.
I have to say when my wife booked the trip and having read the bad review on this site, I could not wait to see this place. From the lobby to the rooms eveything was better that my wildest dreams. This place is more like an upscale condo complex than a hotel. There are a small strip of hotel rooms when you first drive in but we stayed in ajoining rooms in on of the Manor's condo buildings. The both rooms had a kitchenette that was beyond clean and brand new. The living rooms bedrooms and bathrooms were all brand new and sparkling clean. And I have to comment on the carpets. You know the rep that hotel carpets have and I usually wear slippers when walking on them. I have to say these carpets were so new and clean that I had no problem wathing my son lay and crawl around on them. No slippers needed here. The owner and staff were so nice, I did't feel like I was staying at a hotel. I felt like a buddy had let my family use a couple of his brand new condos for a week..
CLEAN, Great location, Wonderful
I agree with another reviewer that the pictures do not do the justice this place deserves. It's a wonderful place to stay. We stayed in the hotel room. The rooms looked brand new. Not a speck of dirt in the bathroom. The room was much larger than I expected. Each room has a deck area with a small table and chairs. The island house has a separate garden area to sit in.
Short walk to town. The staff (including the cleaning people) were all very personable. I highly recommend staying here!
We selected the Bar Harbor Manor based on their web site and their 3 daimond AAA rating. I can't begin to say how pleased we were when we checked in. Our first impression was that the property was beautifully landscaped and meticulously maintained - the gardens were outstanding! (I enjoyed speaking with the owner about some of the unusual varieties they had planted.) The guest parlor was elegant and welcoming. We were greeted with a roaring fire, it was chilly the day we checked in, and they had fresh flowers on the front desk. We had reserved one of their suites with a fireplace as well and the room looked as nice, if not better, than the virtual tour. It had a minikitchen which came in handy for some wine and cheese before going out in the evenings. We found the location convenient - walking distance to everything in town and very quiet. We can't wait to visit again next year!
To start, I totally agree with all the people who wrote positive reviews on this property, and
The Bar Habor Manor has a georgeous website, but DO NOT be fooled! The accomodations are depressing and a waste of money. There are many lighter, more beautiful places to stay for the money, such as the Atlantic Oakes.
My daughter and I stayed here in July 05 for 4 nights and never had a single concern or problem. After checking in the only time I even spoke with staff was to tell the housekeeping lady that the room only needed a couple towels.
The location is excellent its just far enough from Main st so that there isnt any noise at any hour. And its close enough that most anyone can walk the 10 minutes to shop and have a meal...Glorious restaurants everywhere..
The room was clean fresh and well...Perfect...
Privacy, yet close to everything
We had a wonderful suite of rooms, complete with 2 tv's a kitchen and whirlpool, sitting room and bedroom. For what we had the price was not unreasonable and the fourth night was free. It was on a quiet street but near the ocean and the downtown area, an easy walk for most. Also it was only a short drive to Acadia.The proprietors were friendly and helpful. We loved Bar Harbor. We have been there before, many years ago. It is still beautiful and the lobster is wonderful.
