TravelPod Member ReviewsThe Central House Bar Harbor
It's unique for us to be traveling without the motorhome, so we were pleased to find this cozy inn right in the middle of Bar Harbor at an affordable price. Although the bed didn't look like the Queen size described, it slept like one, and was firm, comfortable, and just what we needed. In the sunroom, a Keurig coffeemaker stood at the ready 24 hours a day, with a variety of coffees, teas, and decaf versions of both drinks, as well. The little cafe across the street was perfect for breakfast the next morning as we prepared for our second half-day exploration of Acadia National Park (5 minutes away). As an historic building, it's been beautifully updated and maintained for the comfort of today's guests. Cleanliness to the "nth" degree, and a welcoming manager/hostess. Their free Wi-Fi didn't work in the front lower level of the inn (we were in room 101).

After a long Carriage Road walk, we left the wilds of Acadia and headed to civilization. Within minutes we were cruising along Bar Harbor's bustling Main Street. Shops, cafes and B & B's lined the historic village streets. We scored a parking spot down by the harbor. A sleepy waterfront scene greeted us, lobster boats lulled …

Sorry for the late posting of this blog, no Wiffi in our last campsite! Now as I try to recall what we did it seems like ions ago as we've done so much in 10 days it's scary!!
October 7th 2014 - Off we go on another East Coast Adventure! We said a sad goodbye ...
... lobster pound before, and honestly, had no idea what he was in for. When we pulled into the parking lot just off the road, Mark could not stop grinning from ear to ear. From watching them select his lobster, to watching them cook in the salt water steamers outside, the kid was in heaven. We sat outside under the covered patio and I walked him through the lobster picking process (thanks, mom!). He was slow and methodical at first, but picked up ...
After another beautiful sunrise and breaking down camp in sauna like conditions, we headed to Acadia National Park. Acadia was the first national park east of the Mississippi and probably still one of the most diverse. Between the pine forests, the coastal mountains and the rocky seashore, there is something there for everyone. Had it not been the 4th of July weekend, and every lodging option within miles sold out, we would have liked to have stayed longer.
... The three amigos, Maggie, Aiden and McKenna are put to the test as they measure, touch, blow on claws and answer questions about molting, exoskeletons.... an “A” to each in Lobster 101. On shore we head to the West St. Café for chowdah and blueberry pie, never a disappointment here. Then it’s time to rev up the cell phones as Maggie checks in with Mom and Dad. I am surprised there was any service in town at all though as I’ve never seen so ...
