      We're a family of five planning on visiting Bar Harbor at the end of June. Just wondering if you have any advice out of these three hotels (or another recommendation): Bayview, Atlantic Eeryie Lodge, and Bar Harbor Grand Hotel? Any experience with any of these?

      we are planning a trip in late July. Are the hiking trails busier then. We hike with a small dog who is very well trail trained but still I am always aware of people around us. last time we were here it was in June and the trails were fairly calm. Just wondered how busy it would be in late July

      What is a good water view restaurant in Bar Harbor that would be romantic for dinner but still casual? My sister-in-law is not a seafood fan so menu needs to have some lighter, non-seafood items.

    • October Visit to Bar Harbor

      by stellan7780 Online Now Jun 13, 2011 at 9:12 AM

      Hi There! My boyfriend and I are thinking about visiting Bar Harbor for a few days surrounding Columbus Day(Oct. 10th). We'd like to do some hiking in Acadia as well as explore the island in general. Does anyone know if the area tends to get crowded with tourists at that time of year? Would it be smarter to go later in the month?

      Thank you!

      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.

    • from bar harbor to fundy bay or mooselake area of maine

      by marilynsandberg Online Now Sep 5, 2010 at 9:45 PM

      I will be in Bar Harbor end of september. from there I would like to go to st. martins in new brunswick to kayak the sea caves and hike the bay of fundy trail. it's a long drive (5 hours or so) from bar harbor. if anyone has gone to st. martins, in your opinion, would i be better off going to the moose lake area of maine (less of a drive) and spending time there, or is the st. martins kayaking, fundy trail worth the drive up? i will only be in the area for about a week. thanks.

    • Visiting May 16th-20th...things to do?

      by JD76ers Online Now May 14, 2008 at 6:34 AM

      Hi all,

      My wife and I will be staying in Bar Harbor May 16th - 20th...this will be our first visit there. I realize that it's early in the season so I'm looking for ideas of things to do. We plan on a trolley and boat tour and we hope to check out Atlantic Brewery. From this site I see that Galyn's, Geddy's, and Rosalies are good places to eat. What about nightlife this time of the year?

      If anyone has any other ideas or suggestions of places to see or do please let me know.

      Thanks in advance,

    • Best campgrounds?

      by erinstettler Online Now Mar 20, 2008 at 6:38 AM

      We are planning to visit Acadia at the end of may/early june. I've searched all campground websites, but would love suggestions from others. We would prefer the National Park feel - very woodsy, but I notice there are no showers. Would love oceanfront as well, but having a hard time deciding if oceanfront sites are reservable and private enough, without that paved/grass feeling. Thank you!

      We will be visiting Bar Harbor next October with friends (they will already be there). We will be flying into Bangor to save money (we think). My question is how to get from Bangor to Bar Harbor quickly and cheaply or should we just pay the extra money to fly into Bar Harbor? We really did not want to impose on our friends since they are already inviting us to their place in Bar Harbor. Does anyone know any transportation possibilities?

I realized it's going to be a bit cold (we're goind oct 20th), but we'll just bundle up!

      Any suggestions on what else to see, places to eat, drink, etc. What are good trails to hike up cadillac mountain?
