After a day of fun and activity in Acadia National Park, you’ll want to refresh and rest the night in comfortable accommodations. Bar Harbor has an excellent selection of lodging options featuring a variety of locations and amenities that suit a wide range of tastes and budgets.

Choose an oceanfront hotel, a cozy B&B or historic inn, a private seaside or island cottage, a family-run motel, a vacation rental property, or camping at a family campground. No matter what you decide on, you’ll be sure to find great Maine hospitality, clean and comfortable rooms, and pleasing amenities, all close to a wealth of shopping, dining, entertainment, family-fun attractions, and all the scenic beauty and natural wonders of Acadia and Mount Desert Island.

Bed and breakfasts and inns offer a personalized experience, a hearty breakfast or brunch, and a chance to relax with other guests and share travel experiences. Housekeeping cottages and cabins come fully-equipped with kitchenettes and cookware, so you can prepare your own home-cooked meals if you desire. Vacation rentals are also fully-equipped and are a good choice for large families, multiple families, or groups. Family-run motels offer comfortable stays at attractive prices. Hotels and resorts often package your stay with dining, entertainment, and recreation opportunities.

A good selection of campgrounds in and around Bar Harbor offer tent camping, camper trailer, and RV sites, as well picnic tables and fire rings, hot showers, and laundry. Campgrounds offer a rustic overnight experience where you can be closer to nature and fresh air, a crackling campfire, and the night stars.

Most lodgings are family-friendly, and many are pet-friendly, too. An increasing number of Maine lodging establishments participate in the Maine Green Lodging Certification Program, your assurance that these environmental leaders have dedicated on-site programs to reduce energy, conserve water, minimize waste, use eco-friendly cleaners, and work to educate their guests and the public on these benefits.

Elegant or simple, in-town or tucked away on a quiet lane, fitness centers and spas, pools and hot tubs, and on-site dining or cooking out, you have lots of options to choose from for your home-away-from-home in Bar Harbor. Air conditioning, cable TV, Wi-Fi, and coffee in the room are all standard touches. So come visit, enjoy the scenery, stay in comfort, relax and refresh. That’s what a Maine coast summer vacation is all about.
