Drivin From Bangor to Bar Harbor, ME

Jump to last reply

Me and my sister and our daughters (6 and 13) will be flying into Bangor, ME towards the end of August. We have reservations at the Bay View Inn. We woul like to stop somewhere on the drive after we land for a night or 2 but not sure what town would be best. The issue is the air fare is very expensive to fly in for the first day at the Bay View but drops considerably if we fly in a day or two earlier.

I've been researching on the web but I'm not familiar with the area as this would be our first time visiting Maine.

Can someone recommend a charming town and hotel on the way to Bar Harbor? No motels please or cabins, as suites are more our style. Breakfast included would be great. Interests include sailing and shopping.

Thank you kindly.
