Have you ever been to Bar Harbor, Maine?

I am hoping to go there for our 10 yr anniversary. Any suggestions for bed and breakfasts or things to do appreciated. I am thinking of going biking, seeing the sunrise at cadillac mountain, shopping, not sure what to do in the water, has anyone tried the whalewatching tours?

  • we went there on our honeymoon, can't remember the name of the B&B, but there are tons in the area. There is a local brewery that does tours, Acadia National Park and lots of whale watching/sailing tours. What time of year are you going?

  • I've been there. It is absolutely GORGEOUS!
    They do not allow people on the top of Cadalac Mountain anymore. Do to.. Falcons I believe nesting. This was reported last year. I don't know if it's only seasonal that they do not allow people up there anymore, or if it's year 'round.

    We stayed in Marlboro, Maine (I believe) at a friend's beach cabin, so I don't know of any B&B's.

    We went Whale Watching and it was SOOOOO worth it. Seriously, there were soo many great shots of Whales. I really wish I had brought my camera. The Hubbs and I plan on going next summer!

  • We went last year (mid-July) and were able to go up to the top of Cadillac. And I didn't find it filthy at all. I'm not sure where that came from. Anon - are you referring to hotels that were filthy or the streets, beaches etc? I'm just a little confused because that wasn't my experience at all. is a great website for all sorts of things in the area. Have fun! It's beautiful there!
