We stayed here one night on our road trip. We didn't get in until very late and left very early the next morning. The room was clean and a nice. We wish we would have scheduled more time in Bar Harbor. I will definitely be back and will stay here again.

We are hikers walkers and had no issues walking to town to eat or stroll the shops and museum. The paths were lovely across the street from the hotel around the college. We also enjoyed the hot tub in the pool house. Read less

Spent 2 nights here with phenomenal views over the harbour to watch cruise ships arrive and depart. A spacious room where everything worked, coffee available in foyer and a really good breakfast room up the hill for our large group. Spectacular views. Checkin worked well and staff were obliging.

The staff was very helpful providing golf cart rides up to the Lookout Restaurant which required walking up two very steep hills. Most of the people in our group were older or handicapped so this was of great need to us. I would defiantly love to go back in the warmer months. Read less

This was our third time at the Blue Nose and we loved it! The view from the balcony is superb of the water and islands. The fireplace is a cozy touch. The room is spacious and attractive. The highlight is the pianist, Bill Trowell, who has played at the Blue Nose for 18 plus years. He is one of the most talented people we have ever met. He… Read more
This was our third time at the Blue Nose and we loved it! The view from the balcony is superb of the water and islands. The fireplace is a cozy touch. The room is spacious and attractive. The highlight is the pianist, Bill Trowell, who has played at the Blue Nose for 18 plus years. He is one of the most talented people we have ever met. He plays by ear and can play EVERYTHING from Willy Nelson, Billy Joel, Phantom of the Opera, classical, classics like Moon River, etc. We went to the great room to hear him four nights. It is worth going to the Blue Nose just to hear him. This is one of our very favorite hotels anywhere!! Read less
