    Couldn't have been better!

    I couldn't possibly have better things to say about our experience getting married at the Bar Harbor Inn. Sue and Denise are wonderful people, and total professionals. They are flexible, organized, creative, and really care about making your wedding experience perfect and low-stress! When things come up unexpectedly, they are flexible and positive. Our ceremony of about 70 people went off without a hitch. The setting is immaculate, right on the ocean with the Porcupine Islands in the background (very cool when the Margaret Todd, a 4-masted schooner, sailed behind us mid-ceremony too). Photo ops galore! Sue made the perfect recommendation for the rehearsal dinner - Bar Harbor Lobster Bakes, right down the road, fabulous! - as well as photographer, musicians, and other vendors. She gave honest food recommendations, including when things were not necessary (which really gained my trust). Essentially everything about the experience was the way we wanted it to be. We should give a special shout-out to the food, incidentally... we selected the surf-n-turf with garlic mashed potatoes, maple butter salmon with red potatoes, and a chickpea cake vegetarian dish. For cake - and to be clear, Janice Strout is the best on the island - we went vanilla buttercream with blueberry puree. A large number of guests told us it was the best food and the best cake they have ever had. For appetizers, while the fruit cones and latkes fell a little flat, guests absolutely raved about the lobster grilled cheese, mini beef wellingtons, and assorted puff pastries. For music, we actually had Bob, who plays piano for normal happy hour and brunches at the hotel, play his wonderful assortment on the piano (he's incredibly talented and reads the room perfectly). When we didn't have some items that the hotel had for normal use, Sue and Denise let us use them for free. Bottom line, if you're looking for an amazing backdrop, amazing food, and amazing people who will keep your stress levels low and go the extra mile for you... well, you won't find anything better. :)

    Beautiful and Amazing

    The staff at the Bar Harbor Inn were amazing. Sue and Nicole were AMAZING. They knew exactly what to do. They coordinated with our other vendors to make sure the date went off with out any issues. The views were fantastic and the landscaping is perfect for pictures.

    The Bar Harbor Inn is one of my top choices to photograph for a venue in the state of Maine. The scenery is simply epic. The rooms, layout, design, all the way to the nautical backdrop and mountains in the distance. The coastal weather is ideal and not only that but the staff is kind and attentive. It's always a pleasure and I've photographed here numerous times and I hope there to be many more!

  • DJ Bill Lyons Wedding DJs

    One the best places to have a wedding at. The staff, the view...all of it. So worth it!!
