Bar Harbor offers fine restaurants, quaint shops and gift stores, outdoor band concerts, a historic Art Deco movie theatre and other cultural interests. Look at our links page for some of our staff favorites!
Our motel and B and B are just a short walk to the local pier on Frenchman's Bay and the rocky coast of Maine where you can watch visiting schooners, harbor seals, cormorants and lobster boats. Head out for a walk along the "shore path", a flat, mile-long walking path along the coast of Bar Harbor; you'll have the sea on one side of you and some of the most beautiful mansions of Mount Desert Island on your other.
Feeling adventurous? Take a sea-kayak tour and see MDI from the water!
Acadia National Park is just minutes away for hiking, boating, fishing or biking. Carriage roads, mountain trails, lakes and ponds offer plenty of activities and fun. We can guide you to some of our favorite spots in this unique national park, like the top of the Gorge Trail (above). Drive, ride or take the Mount Desert Island Explorer Bus into the park!
