We had our wedding one month ago at the Bar Harbor Inn and it was PERFECT! All of the staff was so helpful and kind. We planned our wedding from Arizona (I grew up in Maine) and Nicole was always available to answer questions and help out. The staff even managed to get our very elaborate table settings set up perfectly! It went so well, and all we had to do was have fun the day of our wedding - I wish we could get married there every weekend.
The Inn is an institution on the island and I never would have imagined we woul afford to get married there but it was incredibly reasonable and the food was delicious. We heard nothing but rave reviews from our friends and family.
We plan on going back to the inn to celebrate anniversaries as often as possible.

Outstanding wedding! I could not have asked for more. BHI provides a highly trained staff to put you at ease from the moment you choose the venue until you say "I do." They met every need - from making sure we stayed on schedule to helping grandma find the restroom. They are all about the details. A+
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!
