Property FAQs

Can I walk to town?

Yes! Ideally located on the Bar Harbor waterfront the Bar Harbor Inn offers breathtaking water views and easy access to town. Leave your car here and take a short walk, only 500 feet, up the driveway and be right in the heart of downtown Bar Harbor, just steps away from dining, shopping and activities.

Pool and Hot Tubs

Don’t forget to pack your swimsuits and water wings! The Bar Harbor Inn has a heated outdoor infinity pool and 2 hot tubs. The pool and hot tubs are located just outside the Birch Point building and open from 9am to dusk mid-May to Mid-October. This family friendly atmosphere is a wonderful place to spend time together and enjoy the beauty of Bar Harbor.

Best places to eat outside of Bar Harbor?

Where can I get an early breakfast?

We serve a complimentary continental breakfast of hard boiled eggs, yogurt, oatmeal, Danishes and fruit along with coffee / tea / juice, beginning at 7am each day. If you are thinking to eat prior to that, Jordan’s Restaurant on Cottage street opens at 5am daily.

Best way to get around Bar Harbor & Mount Desert Island?

Bar Harbor is quite small, with very little public parking – so the best way to get around town is to walk or bike.
Mount Desert Island on the other hand is quite big, so it’s best to take you car to distant places. Unless you are up for riding your bike long distances. Mind the hills!

From June 23rd until October 10th there are Island Explorer shuttles that will take you around Mount Desert Island & Acadia National Park on various scheduled routes. Simply speak to the front desk to pick up a schedule map at the front desk or go to for viewing on your phone
