How far from Bar Harbor?

Jump to last reply

I'll be in Portland in a few weeks and I'd finally like to make it up to Bar Harbor and Acadia for a couple days.

Mid range hotels like Marriott Courtyard would be fine for this trip since I expect to be outside a lot, but still want to come back to a standard (some may think boring) consistent hotel. I don't think there are any in the area, though. I'm not a fan of roadside motels, and I hate frilly b&bs. The resorts I've seen online are not in my budget unless there are some really good deals for midweek after Labor Day.

I don't know the area at all and I'm trying to figure out how far away from Bar Harbor can I stay and still be able to go into the town for dinners, shopping and strolling? Maybe up to 30 minutes away, a little more if a suitable place to stay is farther. I would probably go to Acadia just one day for some siteseeing and very light hiking . Maybe I'd go another day on my way back south. I'll also be stopping in Rockport and Camden on the way north.

Any suggestions for specific towns with good access to Acadia and especially specific hotels(independent or chain) that are reliable and not too expensive.?
