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).

... extrememly fast. In addition to the lobster, we had coleslaw, corn on the cob, a roll and THE BEST blueberry pie a la mode. Energized from the intricate process of picking a lobster, we decided to drive into Bar Harbor for a few hours. We drove through Acadia National Park and followed the park loop road around Cadillac Mountain following Sand Beach Trail. This led us to Thunder Hole which is a rock formation that has been so badly ...

Our arrival in the US was painless enough but slowed down by a Japan airlines flight . Picked up the Buick at Thrifty and after a U turn though the air port we made out way north .

... too cold!
I tried to park at Jordan Pond to have lunch, but both lots were full so I headed back to the Visitor Center lot to try and catch a bus. Luckily I arrived right before the bus did and was back at Jordan Pond in a short amount of time. The wait to sit outside was longer than I wanted so I waited for an inside table. Afternoon Tea at Jordan Pond is made delightful by the mountains that surround the pond. I am not sure I ...
... I've seen on a hike ever, so we were not ones to argue.
Taking it easy tonight, as we have a long drive to Prince Edward Island tomorrow. However, we were still able to get into some of the wine Nate's mother had generously donated. Tonight we tackled some Sauternes from the 70's paired with local blue cheese. For dinner? Lobster of course.
Tomorrow - driving along the coast from Maine to Prince Edward Island in Canada and Sailor becomes a bi-national dog!
