Bar Harbor in September

by bjpreston59

My husband & I are planning to be in Bar Harbor for 3 nights in Sept. I am trying to find a place to stay with the best value. So many places are so expensive. We don't need luxury, but do like water view and clean accommodations, and convenient location.

Hi - we spent a week in Bar Harbor a few years ago - end of Sept/beginning of Oct. so at the end of the tourist season there.

Your challenge here is that you want too much for too little. Bar Harbor is a popular destination so to get a nice view of the water plus a convenient, in-town location, you're going to pay a premium. We had the same problem and ended up having to give up the water view and a location right in center of town BUT in the end we were happy with our choice.

Bar Harbor Motel is on the edge of town and offers very clean, spacious accommodation for a fair price. They are right on a shuttle stop that goes into town, or you can make the very short drive. (#3 on Trip Advisor)

So, you might want to take a look at the Trip Advisor listings for reviews and approx. costs.

I see that Moseley Cottage and Town Motel is getting good ratings and is located right in town - but no water views. They offer parking - which is a plus in downtown Bar Harbor.

Atlantic Eyrie is also getting decent reviews, and I'd be sure to request an ocean view. You would be outside of the town center here as well.

We stayed at the Seacroft, as Kate (Goodfish) mentioned, it may be that the places with sea views command higher prices than what you are willing to pay. The Seacroft didn't have ocean views but it was very convenient to walk to town or to walk to the ocean. Here's a link to their TA reviews and to my review from several years ago.

This one looks pretty good too, if you like B&Bs:

You'd need to request a harbor view.

,> location, location, location...that is why it is expensive....if you knock out the water view it could be cheaper in the many B and B's in Bar Harbor,

The price quoted may also reflect the fact you only want to stay 3 nights.
Stay for a week and it could be cheaper.

The Bar Harbor Kennel Club is very good, and very reasonable. They have two accommodations on the island, one in Bar Harbor. Very home-y. Our dogs loved it there. Google 'bar harbor kennel club facebook', click on the 2nd entry, and up comes the BHKC's facebook page.

We like the Shore Path Cottage B & B, and the Hollyhock B & B, both in Bar Harbor.

Travel Tips for Bar Harbor

Bar Harbor Labs

by grandmaR

On the way back from summer school we visited the Bar Harbor labs. My dad was doing some research along similar lines that was being done at those labs. So we dropped in for a visit. My dad had some fat mice that got diabetes naturally. Bar Harbor labs also had a fat mouse. But theirs was different. Our mice where black and white and pear shaped - solid mice. The Bar Harbor mice were 'fluffy'. They hardly seemed to have any weight at all because their fat kind of spread out.

There are several things I'd...

by tim123

There are several things I'd recommend to do in the Bar Harbor area. It's good to just walk around Bar Harbor and view the area first. The rest of the time I'd spend in Acadia National Park and visit Cadillac Mountain, Otter Cliffs, and Jordan Pond. If you had extra time you could visit other areas near Bar Harbor or take a trip to the quieter western side of Mount Desert Island and see the areas around Bass Harbor or Northeast Harbor. My best memory of Maine was an early morning hike to Otter Point in Acadia National Park with a park ranger at 7:30 a.m. Wow!

Cool local bakery

by ramonahowell

We discovered the Morning Glory Bakery on our last day in BH, and we were so sad that we didn't find it sooner. It is right in downtown, but it is easy to miss on the little side street. If you can find it, it is a great place to grab some great baked goods and check out the local flavor, we went there three times on our last day, we couldn't get enough!

Lobster dinner by the ocean

by Jozzzef about Galyn's

We figured us foodlovers could not leave New England without having a Lobster dinner so we sought out a good deal among the restaurants in Bar Harbor. It couldn't have been any better. We had a table on the balcony overlooking the harbor and the ocean with the little islands getting covered in mist. The personel was very polite and gave us the rules of engagement for lobster dining. Don't be ashamed to have them explain to you how to eat a lobster they do that all the time. We both ordered the early bird lobster special which included a salad as a starter and of course a 1 1/2 pound lobster served with steamed potatoes and some vegetables. It was fantastic! I tried to recreate the dinner but found that for the price we paid over there, i can't even buy the lobster here in Belgium!

Balcony Beverages and Scary Karyoke

by kazander about Carmen Verandah's

We stopped up to Carmen Verandah's for a local beer, (Bar Harbor Ale I believe) after wandering around Bar Harbor one evening. They have a great balcony overlooking the town green, it's a great place to people watch. Or you can play pool or darts, and there is also live music and dancing. As it happened, it was Karyoke night when we went. A lovely young woman (I think) decided to get up and do a striking rendition of Guns and Roses "Welcome to the Jungle" complete with all the appropriate shanananananaknees. It's gonna bring ya down...huh!
