Dear Valued Guest,

As we evolve to improve your guest experience we are pleased to update you on the progress and scope of our 2019 property improvements.

Our lobby renovations is now complete and welcoming guests to relax, and enjoy this elegant and beautiful space throughout their stay. Our infinity edge swimming pool is now complete and available for guest use. We continue to work on the building that will be the future home to continental breakfast, the fitness room and new pool bar.

While we are excited to share this news, we realize there may be concerns regarding your upcoming visit. We are convinced that these improvements will make your future stays with us even more enjoyable, and we sincerely appreciate your understanding while we finalize the upgrades.

Below you will find responses to some of the most common questions our guests are asking regarding the renovation.  If you wish to learn more about the design scope, or have any additional questions please feel free to call us directly at (833) 554-8088 or

Is my view going to be affected?

The area of improvement is located in the orange area highlighted on the map below. The guest rooms located in the Newport Building, Oceanfront Lodge and many in the Main Inn will not have obstructed views. The rooms with Pool & Garden views, and the first floor of the Loft Suites may be impacted during the 2019 spring season.

Hours of construction?

Most of the work on the project will occur during the week (Monday – Friday) between the hours of 8am – 5pm.

We currently do not have any weekend construction hours scheduled. There may be a time when additional hours become necessary however we will communicate with guests if we foresee any change in the schedule.

Will there be any noise that could impact my stay?

The majority of noise you may hear will be late in the morning and cease in the afternoon. We will make sure to communicate daily with our guests with any changes that would directly impact their stay during this renovation.

When will the renovation be complete?

The pool is currently complete and garden walkway area will be finalized by the end July 2019.

The new building has a planned completion in the fall of 2019.

We are very excited for the end result of this work and thank you for your patience and understanding during this time of progress for your future comfort at the Bar Harbor Inn.

Best regards,
Jeremy Dougherty, General Manager
