THE BAR  HARBOR  INN

 

Wow, just check out the photos I'll post on this place.  It overlooks the town pier, and the town beach.  The four mast schooner THE MARGARETTE TODD is anchored right in front of the inn, and there are large town parks on each end of the inn overlooking the water.  Main Street and Cottage street are just a few steps away.  And a shortcut in the back of the property quickly gets you to the Village Green where all the free buses depart and arrive.
There is a small playground in the center of the property, and the grounds were very well cared for,  with flowers and flowering bushes everywhere.  Very large and well lit parking lots as well.  They offer outside dining on their large lawn overlooking the water.  In the photos you will see people outside eating with a killer view of that four mast schooner.  They also boost a complete bridal service, and I have seen many weddings held here on their well groomed lawns.  They also have a fancy white lace gazebo on one lawn overlooking the ocean, many of the weddings take place there.  The gazebo is designed to appear as if it were on a wedding cake.
Outside the inn itself, and this place is huge, all along the lawns are large wooden deck chairs and tables for relaxing in.   And each room has its own balconey as well.
The stunning round part of this inn houses THE READING ROOM RESTAURANT - where you can take down one of their many books and relax and read while enjoying your meal. 
The bar harbor inn and spa is located at Newport drive, minutes from everything.

Bar Harbor Inn and Spa  -  800-350-3352  or  207-288-3351
THE READING ROOM - same number as above

THE HARBORSIDE HOTEL

 

Me and my daughter took our camera and dropped by the Harborside motel today, and brought you all some really good photos we shot from their property.  This is one of the finer motels intown, so staying here won't be cheap, but I don't think you will find a better place to get some R&R.  I just realized I can't add the photos as I write this, but I will download them at the end.  The day started out with a brilliant sun, but as the day wore on, the fog began to come in, as some of the photos will show.  I saw at least three tennis courts, outside spas pools, and what appeared tobe a salt water pool as well.  This is a large motel for sure.  It has several dinning places.  The Bar Harbor Club - resort,spa, tennie - as the sign says, sits right next to the motel, and both are owned by the same owner.
The grounds were very well upkept with bright bunches of flowers everywhere, And the motel sits right on the water, as the pictures will show.  You can sit on the balconey at sunset, as many were, and look across at the vanishing sand bar that connects our island to Bar Island further out in the harbor FOOD ANYONE
FOOD ANYONE
.  Once the tide comes in, Bar Island is cut off, and any walkers who didn't leave the small island are stuck there.
As you look in the other direction, the entire harbor to the right is wide open, and you can sit and watch as the many vessels come and go, including the huge whale watchers, bird watches, and sea cruise vessels, not to mention the fishermen with their lobster boats and draggers.  And today, a small cruise ship came in and tied up at the end of the town pier, all visible from the Harborside motel.
The really nice thing about staying here is that it is as close to being in the middle of downtown as you can get.  Within less then five minutes, you can be standing at the end of the town pier, or strolling through the many shops that line the narrow streets of Bar Harbor.  And almos across the street from the motel is where Ollis Trolley departs for in town and Island tours.  I have not eaten here, but I can tell you I was very impressed with what I saw.  Enjoy the photos...

Okay, I just thought I would update this...THE BAR HARBOR CLUB has dining on the waterfront, in THE CLUB ROOM.  Appetizers run between $9  $14, chowder and soups run between $5 - $7, salard's between $6 - $9,  and signature entrees $24 and up.  The ad says this is a sample menu only...207-288-5033

The videos below will give you a feel for what Bar harbor is like year round.  I shot the photos with a Kodak camera - my hope is one day to be able to upgrade to a go-pro camera.
