I was mocking the Americans about yesterday being the end of summer and today being the 1st of autumn (fall i should say). Well I mock no more. After our alarm didn't go off and we were positively flying around we made it just in time for our group photo at 8 am. Once outside the briskness of the morning hit us. It was bloody freezing. The lazy wind was going straight through us. The ...
... 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.
On up the coast we went and still the houses are straight out of ...
... How disappointing. It was a wonderful boat ride, the captain and his assistant were fabulous hosts, and it was great to be on the water on a day when the cruise ships had unloaded fifty gazillion people into the tiny town of Bar Harbor, spoiling and kind of enjoyable sightseeing on shore. But I really missed seeing my whale. Can't check that one off the bucket list, and least not this trip! But you can't win them all, and I'm not going to let it spoil my trip!
... brochures say its a 25 mile loop that can be completed in about 3 hours. Following a visit at the visitor center and purchasing a park pass watching a 15m video highlighting the park we purchased an audio tour of the park. With a run time of 70 min, with pauses at the sights we headed off on the tour. Along the way there are many bridges most granite dating to the turn of the century meaning hand cut and hand built. Many waterfalls all flowing well with all the ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Ledgelawn Inn Bar Harbor
I stayed in the ledgelawn over the 4th of July long weekend and had a wonderful stay. The building is clearly the most impressive looking B&B downtown and I was surprised to find that the rates were in line with the other less impressive or historic places nearby. You really get a sense staying there of connecting to old Bar Harbor when people actually lived in these magnificent mansions.
My girlfriend and I spent the 4th in Bar Harbor at the Ledgelawn, and it was really wonderful. The Ledgelawn is just beautiful. I don't know much about Bar Harbor history, but as a person who loves unique local experience, I felt like I was getting the real thing. We had a a great time chatting with the owners about the inn and the town - very friendly folks. The room was beautiful, the housekeeping was attentive and the location was great. Will definitely visit again.
Very upset guess
When I stayed at the Ledgelawn Inn they were very under staffed and never had my room cleaned the whole four days I stayed and I complained but the housekeeper was the front desk person and was very rude because it was her rooms that I was staying in, I wanted to talk to a manager,she had said "that the Inn did not have one, but you can talk to the owners" so I had said yes I would really like that and the owners never come to talk to me and I never saw them around so I left that place very very unhappy and will never stay there again and I hope that other people really reconsider staying there because it is a DUMP and way over price to stay in a --- hole. NEVER AGAIN WILL I STAY THERE AND OTHER SHOULDN'T EITHER.
Only sleep there if you have a hazmat suit
This place is the pits! It is filthy, the staff is clueless, the owner looks like she needs meds deperately, and the rooms are dated and dirty. We complained about the condition of our room and the front desk person said they didn't have a manager. I pushed and asked to see the owner who drove over to the property. When I pointed out the dna-filled (hair)shower, lipstick on the water glasses (not mine) and the unmade bed she seemed utterly at a loss as to why I had demanded she come and see the room. Avoid at all costs! Even free.
We stayed in the "cheapest room" (their words)which was $165.00. The room was fairly nice and the bed was comfortable, but the bathroom needs some work...the wallpaper is in desparate need of replacement and the sink was falling off the wall. We reported this to the staff, but they did not seem concerned. The young man at the check in was polite, but not well informed (not necessarily his fault). Check in time was 3:00 ... when we returned from our Acadia trip at 4:30, we found housekeeping staff still making up our room. There were no afternoon refreshments available which is the norm for most nicer inns and would have been welcomed while we waited for our room.
We reserved 2 rooms at the Ledgelawn because it was one of the few centrally located hotels that allowed pets. From the start, the front desk checked us in without so much as a greeting. There was no explanation of the amenities, etc. and then we were chastised later for crossing the lobby with our small dog on the way to our room. The rooms were in desparate need of updating (think circa 1980), and the "elaborate continental breakfast" consisted of a few boxes of cereal set out with bananas and stale english muffins. The kitchen staff simply stated the rest of the food (e.g., scrambled eggs) was "gone," and it was only an hour into breakfast. After about 10 more people came down for breakfast, she finally brought out more coffee and bread, but only after repeated prompts. The hotel looked nothing like the beautiful pictures on the website. Given the inflated price, you could do alot better with your money. I would not stay here again, nor recommend it.
Right off the top, I'll let you know.. I did not actually stay here. However, my story gives you some indication of how it's run.
Brings back good memories
I had good times at the Ledgelawn in contrast to the reviews of the other people here. The rooms were old and fun to stay in, and I always enjoyed coming back to the room after a day in Bar Harbor. It is located right near the sand bar and the "downtown" area and the house is neat and antiquated in a charming way. It brings back good memories from my childhood visiting there. I loved it.
We, too, stayed at the Ledgelawn a few years ago. The room was small, very warm and the mattress lumpy to say the least. Pool green and not used. The breakfast staff was not friendly, place settings returned for cleanliness, food was fair and the experience not good. However, Acadia National park is wonderful and we have returned year after year staying at the Acadia Inn with great staff wonderful accomodations.
