Luxury Accommodations on the Edge of Frenchman Bay

Bar Harbor’s Premier Oceanfront Hotel

Without a doubt, The Bar Harbor Inn is the most iconic hotel on Mount Desert Island. Located on the shores of Frenchman Bay with exquisite views of the Atlantic Ocean, impeccable lawns and gardens, and time-honored New England accommodations spread throughout three unique guest buildings: the Main Innthe Oceanfront Lodge, and the Newport Building.

Each building offers its own character, with options of luxurious bay view suites, spectacular oceanfront rooms, or garden and grounds view rooms. All of our waterfront accommodations provide traditional hotel amenities, with exclusive access to our fitness room, heated outdoor infinity pool and jacuzzi, and a daily deluxe continental breakfast with spectacular seating in our Birch Point Building, overlooking the Porcupine Islands on Frenchman Bay.

Rooms for Every Type of Bar Harbor Getaway

The Bar Harbor Inn’s location offers the best of both worlds. Tranquil views and the sound of gently lapping waves to one side and downtown Bar Harbor on the other. This central position means guests can stroll the 1881 shore path or hop on a whale watching tour, and have leisurely access to local art galleries, unique shops, homemade ice cream, and more. Just a six minute drive to the Cadillac Mountain entrance, even Acadia National Park is a stone skip away. And when you are resting in your rooms, enjoy the peaceful scenes of masted schooners or the lobster boats coming and going as they check and haul traps just outside your window.
