The Good and the Bad of Bar Harbor

A travel blog entry by rollingstone54

After a good night's rest and a hearty breakfast of pancakes and sausages, we headed to Bahaba (Bar Harbor). This is a very touristy, crowded town, especially since it was close to the 4th of July. Deborah had never had a lobster roll, well we went to this place called Cafe This Way and each had a lobster roll, at US$20 a shot, at these prices, we should have went the "other way". Can you say tourist trap!! We however, did have the best meal of our entire trip at an Italian restaurant ...

... can not imagine how the folks there could stand the cold temperatures enough to swim. Yikes!
From Sand Beach we walked along Ocean Trail for almost a mile toward Thunder Hole. Along the way, we stopped and walked out onto the enormous rocks overlooking the ocean. The view was absolutely breathtaking! I could have sat there for hours watching the crashing waves and small boats on the water. ...

... it meant I was very close to the ocean and almost to my destination. When you reach Trenton and head towards Mount Desert Island, you can also see the beautiful ocean. Once you cross onto the Island, there will be a sign that will direct you towards Bar Harbor. A visit to Bar Harbor is a must, and should definitely be on your to do list as one of your destinations as it is full of excellent restaurants and adorable shops. I will ...

... stopping halfway at Cadillac mountain to watch the actual sunrise. A quick half mile hike around the summit followed. A little tired and a little cold, we went into the town of Bar Harbor for breakfast. When in Rome has been our mantra for food during the trip. "When in Rome" in Bar Harbor means lobster eggs benedict and wild blueberry pancakes. And a cappuccino. I know, cappuccinos aren't native to maine, but I'm running on four hours of sleep here! And it was tasty. So lay ...

Down to Eagle Lake (largest of the many lakes in the park) and take our bikes off for the ride portion of the day. LOTS of bikes but there are so many trails and they are so wide it does not seem too crowded! Start off around Eagle Lake and it is nice ride with a few long hills and take you up a long ways! Then off ...

    Historical Traveler Reviews Bar Harbor Manor

    A delightful, perfect weekend

    from

    We just came back from a wonderful stay at the Bar Harbor Manor. We highly recommend it to everyone!

    When we arrived, we were stunned by the quiet, beautiful property, the colorful flower and pea plants growing on the trellis, and the well-manicured grass. The weekend was even more wonderful when we discovered we had been upgraded for free to 2 bedroom suite.

    The suite essentially was a 2 bedroom apartment on the 2nd floor of a separate building. The carpet was clean and plush, the furnishings well decorated, the bathroom bright and cozy. The sheets in both beds were very soft and comfortable. The best part was the kitchen, with its complete stock of fridge, microwave, pots, plates, glasses, etc.

    We were pleased with every aspect of the experience. It made for a truly memorable engagement weekend. We would gladly come back again -- it was worth every dollar.

    Bar Harbor's Hidden Treasure!

    from

    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.

    The condition of the grounds and the room cannot be described as anything less than EXQUISITE. We have never stayed in a cleaner hotel room--the sheets were perfect, the bathroom was spotless and the carpet was free of stains. The room decor was "vintage" or "Victorian" with contrasting florals and cherry furniture. It was tastefully done and did not overpower us at all. Outside, many flowers were blooming, including fragrant lilies. When we stopped back at the room one afternoon, two friendly workers were sweeping the parking lot! In the lobby, the proprietors provided two binders full of the menus for local restaurants. We will definitely stay at Bar Harbor Manor again and strongly recommend it to anyone and everyone. You will not be disappointed!

    Best place to stay in bar harbor

    from

    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..

    You will love it , trust me!!!

    CLEAN, Great location, Wonderful

    from

    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!

    More Beautiful Than The Pictures

    from

    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!

    A very pleasing stay

    from

    To start, I totally agree with all the people who wrote positive reviews on this property, and

    completely disagree with the one person who said it was depressing. Our room # 24 was

    bright and cheerful, beautifully furnished, clean and well maintained. Our positive experience

    began when I called to make a reservation. Owner/manager Brad was very accomodating

    in putting 2 packages together to make the rate very affordable. I thought we were going to

    be in one of the inn rooms with one queen size bed. Instead, room # 24 was very spacious,

    and had two very comfortable queen size beds. On top of all that one of the packages

    included a complimentary lobster dinner at the Island Chowder House, an AAA 2 diamond

    restaurant. Our entree included so much GOOD food that we had no room for their homemade

    blueberry pie, which was probably awesome. I am not a guest who is easy to please, but I

    could not find any significant fault with Bar Harbor Manor. If we go to Bar Harbor again, I

    would not even consider any other accomodations, unless BH Manor was fully booked.

    Hated this place

    from

    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.

    Our room felt literally like a funeral parlor.

    Beautiful place

    from

    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

    from

    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.
