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).

... automobiles off the island. In 1947, a devastating fire threatened to level Bar Harbor. A change in wind direction spared part of the town but most of the beautiful estates were lost. Having found new summer playgrounds, the estates were not rebuilt and the park became the beneficiary of some of those lands. Acadia National park has 124 miles of hiking trails and Mt. Cadillac is the tallest mountain on the U.S. Atlantic Coast. We visited a mansion built in 1881 know as ...
... ceiling -- Dysart's had parts of trucks nailed to the wall. This is one of those places you only come to with a raging hangover and the darkest tinted sunglasses you can find. Fortunately, the only thing raging for us was our appetite. The parking lot was absolutely jam-packed with cars and the gas station full of semis. We entered the restaurant and were seated immedaitely by the hostess. This is one of those ...

Day 2 at Acadia was once again cloudy. So, once again, no sunrise. Darn. We just hoped the rain would hold off until our boat tour was over. We drove to Northwest Harbor for our tour. The rain held off and we were able to see so much more of the park. After our boat tour, it was off on another driving adventure.
