We had a reservation for two nights in July. Check in was fast and easy. After getting settled in a very clean and spacious room, we walked downtown to try out the recommendations. At dinner, we decided to try and stay an additional night. We made a quick phone call to Christopher at the front desk to explain our plans and back to dinner. Within in an hour, he called back and had us set up for the additional night. The entire team at Bar Harbor Manor aim to give you a great experience. Christopher was an amazing wealth of knowledge and made sure we had a great visit. The location is excellent, both close to the park and close enough to walk downtown. A must stay if we ever return!

We had a 3 night stay in the 3 story hotel building. Clean, quiet, spacious, well decorated newer room. We appreciated having the balcony to wind down after busy days. We cannot say enough great things about Christopher and Karen who are incredibly personal and professional! Their hospitality is unmatched. We were happily accommodated when we added a night to our stay last-minute and we could tell Christopher juggled things, allowing us to stay in the same room all 3 nights even though there must have been limited availability as we arrived on a Saturday. Christopher used his connections to arrange spots for us on an Acadia boat tour when he found out we were not having success booking one ourselves. He is the real hidden hem of this Island. Karen, keep making the cookies. They are a nice touch. They set the bar high. You don’t get this level of personal service at chain hotels.

Like vacationing in a Hallmark movie!

This place is like a Hallmark movie. Thanks to Karen and Christopher, it’s a charming and warm place to stay. They were so fun and helpful. Rooms are large, very clean, comfortable, and we loved our balcony. So close to downtown - easy walk to everything from shops to coffee to the walk out to Bar Island. We loved this hotel and would definitely stay again! Thanks for a great stay!

Very Nice Place but Major Problem; Confirmed Reservation Not Honored

We had two reservations in July 2022: the first for two nights in a king room and the second for a final night in a queen room (king was not available for all three nights). Despite being informed that we were assigned room 7 for night three in the morning of day three in the mid afternoon that changed due to an “overbooking mix up” necessitating moving to an apparently affiliated hotel. Although disappointed this amplified when getting to the other hotel, the Fig, and seeing it was which of clearly inferior quality and two stars. A subsequent call to the Bar Harbor Manor to follow up was not returned. In itself the Bar Harbor Manor is very good and it’s front desk employees are excellent and nice. However I suspect the overbooking is systematic and financially driven in that the hotel seems to be part of a group. Even with a confirmed reservation it seems a customer cannot be assured to stay there. It is for this reason our rating is poor.

Our stay here was absolutely wonderful. Christopher checked us in and gave us some great recommendations for both Bar Harbor and Acadia. We walked out of the office with a better idea of which restaurants we wanted to try, as well as kayak and bike rentals. During the next few days, we returned to the office a handful of times and had the opportunity to interact with two other ladies at the desk; both were lovely and gave us great recommendations. The inn itself is beautiful, and the rooms were cozy and clean, with plenty of room to move around. The location was convenient to the downtown Bar Harbor area, and a ten minute walk put us in the center of the action. We loved our five days here, and would love to return!
