Escape to the ocean views, elegant accommodations, Bar Harbor Village and the Acadia National Park on Mount Desert Island, known as the most beautiful island in America. Atop a granite terraced hillside, you will quickly discover the allure of Maine’s rockbound coast. You’ll stay in luxurious comfort at the Bluenose Inn, which places you just minutes away from the attractions that make this corner of Maine one of the nation’s most popular retreats.
The original building of the Bluenose Inn was constructed in 1884 as the summer estate of Mrs. William Morris Hunt, an artist’s widow. The stonework from this palatial cottage, which she named Mizzentop, remains beneath the building that bears its name. Today the building is a AAA four-diamond luxury resort that features tastefully decorated rooms, the Eden Spa, and grounds with panoramic views of Frenchman Bay.
The Bluenose Inn is just a leisurely stroll away from Bar Harbor Village and it’s many activities. History buffs appreciate the carefully preserved architecture and array of museums, music lovers enjoy the host of summer concerts, and the young-at-heart love the beaches, fishing harbors, mountains, and the many fairs and festivals held throughout the year! You can’t help but leave Bar Harbor tanned, relaxed, and with a heart full of great memories.
Of course a visit to Bar Harbor would be incomplete without a visit to Acadia National Park, which has long been one of America’s most treasured national parks. Within the park’s 40,000 acres, you can discover some of the most varied and dramatic scenery anywhere, including countless glacier-carved granite cliffs, seventeen mountain peaks, dozens of islands and fresh water lakes, salt marshes, and the only fjord on the eastern coast of the United States.
