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).

... the biggest tide in the world - something like 40ft betw low and high tide). Quiet night for me on board tonight. There is a virtuoso cocktail party that I will go to briefly and then I am "ordering in". My butler can bring me the menu from the main restaurant which is great and then I will get in my PJ's and watch a movie! We turn our clocks forward tonight. I did not realize that coastal Canada was an hour ...
... and exploring the beers and wine at the Bar Harbor Brewing Co. (a local brewing company that is brewed on site at Atlantic Brewing Company). We picked up a few beers for the fireworks and decided to drop them off and say hi to Max before heading back to dinner. Dusk was coming and the threat of Arthur was growing closer and closer. We ate at McKay's Public House (http://www.yelp.com/biz/mckays-public- house-bar-harbor) outside on the large patio ...
... Center when everyone is huddled up as if they are embarking on an arctic expedition. They’ll all be sorry when it's boiling hot later on, won’t they?
We purchase our visitors pass and enter the park. And it is indeed spectacular. There are mountains, forests, beaches and lakes. I make an impressive attempt at climbing a mountain trail before deciding that jumping up onto a few rocks and waving at Mr ...
... instructional card sitting on the front seat explaining how to turn on your vehicle. Otherwise, the Chevy Cruze I have is way nicer than I was expecting considering the cheap class of car I chose. It actually has cruise control, power windows and locks and tells you what the temperature is in the car.
Although I do not like leather seats!
... and bitter winds. It's a bit more masculine than the Washington coast, I thought. The park is gorgeous, and you can sit out on the rock cliffs and just stare at the ocean. We were very fortunate to be there on a sunny day. The days on either side of that day were stormy.
We had lunch in Bar Harbor, which is kind of an upscale, touristy spot. Our lunch was pretty nondescript, but it included frozen custard, which was another first for us. Mmmm. Then we ...
