We liked the piano player in the evening and the view was beautiful
The red carpet throughout the hotel and old furnishings from the 1990's need updating. This could have a great beach theme to make it more of a boutique hotel.
Beautiful sitting right by the bay beach
The main building (mizzenmast) seems very nice. The piano player in the bar in the evenings was great.
We were in the annex building. The elevator was at one end, and our room was at the other. I have a pulmonary problem, and this made things very difficult. Even after three days I could not figure out how to properly regulate the heat/air system - very hot each night! Complimentary breakfast was very limited, and bus loads of guests usually ate everything up.
Delivery of gift, fireplaces, deck
I did not like the breakfast could be better. some of the foods ran out when I got in for breakfast. not very many choices, Space is very cramp and small area for breakfast.
I liked the hotel very much and the views from my room was AMAZING of the harbor and I viewed the pool area also. Staff was very nice, and kind as well as informative. Spa was not available when I arrived so I missed out on that.
The Bluenose Inn is located on Mt. Desert Island off the coast of Maine and is just a short drive from stunning Acadia National Park. It provides amazing views of Frenchman Bay in the distance and is most definitely a destination of its own. However, as it is just walking distance from the charming downtown area of Bar Harbor, it could be the perfect base for an exploration of the area. Cadillac Mountain is eight miles from the hotel, and spots like the Beatrix Farrand Gardens, West Street Historic District, Criterion Theater, Village Green, Great Meadow Walk, Thunder Hole and scores of restaurants shops and seasonal entertainments are also just a short distance away.
A resort-like hotel, the property has an amazing array of amenities right on the premises, including an oversized pool area with sun deck and hot tub, a modern fitness center, spa services (for a fee), regular live performances and happy hours in the lounge, an onsite restaurant offering local specialties, outdoor sitting areas with firepits, laundry services (for a fee), a business service center, free parking, shuttles into town (free), on-site shops, free Wi-Fi throughout, and a concierge desk, among other services.
Rooms vary quite widely and include apartment-like rooms, suites and more. All 98 rooms are decorated in a comfortable, home-like manner and are much larger than traditional rooms. They feature hot beverage stations, luxurious robes, mini fridges, climate controls, 42” HD TVs with cable channels, in-room safes, signature bedding, and most rooms have a balcony, fireplace and all feature large baths with toiletries.
If heading to Bar Harbor this year, a stay at The Bluenose Inn is a great choice.
