Porcupine Room

Intimate Receptions & Dreamy Sunsets

Located on the second floor of the Main Inn, the Porcupine Room features New England décor with elegantly curved windows for panoramic ocean views. The newly renovated wrap-around balcony offers fresh air and sea breezes, while it inspires guests to mingle while sipping cocktails and delighting in passed hors d’ oeuvres. The balcony is also an alternative option for a smaller, private wedding ceremony.

As the sun begins to set, take a moment for a spectacular Maine sunset full of vibrant oranges, pinks, purples and blues. Many couples choose this opportunity for their first dance overlooking the beautiful Maine coastline.

The Porcupine Room gets its name from the magnificent views of the Porcupine Islands in Frenchman Bay. Sheep Porcupine Island, Burnt Porcupine Island, Long Porcupine Island and Bald Porcupine Island make up the chain of islands that now are part of Acadia National Park and a beautiful backdrop for your wedding.

Perfect for groups of 20-48 guests, this space is available from 11:00am – 3:00pm or 5:00pm – 9:00pm. With our professional wedding planners, you can count on us to organize the wedding reception of your dreams—it’s a Bar Harbor Inn tradition.
