Such a dream come true!
Gorgeous, Memorable, Cannot Wait to Visit Them Again
Every single member of the staff, from the event coordinator to the valets and bellhops were not only complete professionals, but also incredibly friendly and warm. I cannot say enough wonderful things about Briana, who was there for us on every step of the planning process, happy to answer any questions and help provide us with options and Jared, who supported us during the rare times that Briana was unavailable. During our wedding rehearsal, Briana even identified a small muddy area on the ceremony lawn and opted to cover the space with wood planks, green cloth and some of our floral decor to ensure nobody got their heels caught or muddied their dress on the wedding day.
Arguably, the most important thing about the BHI is how much our guests enjoyed their time there as well. Every single person I spoke to during or after our wedding, has had nothing but wonderful things to say about the venue we chose. After months of gushing about this place, I’m so happy they all felt the same way that we did. This was also especially important to me because our guest count was large enough to only fit in the Reading Room which is only available between 11:30am-4pm. I was initially apprehensive about a daytime wedding, but I’m so happy I didn’t let that deter us from choosing this place.
All this to say, I cannot recommend this venue enough and my husband and I are already planning a trip back to relive all our wedding memories.
Planning the wedding from states away was made easy with Briana’s help! She was so responsive and easy to work with.
We wish we could relive the day over and over again but are already excited for our many bar harbor trips in the future. This place will always hold a very special place in our hearts

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!
One the best places to have a wedding at. The staff, the view...all of it. So worth it!!
The Inn is beautiful, as is the location, and the event staff are among the best in the business!
