Such a dream come true!

This was by far the best decision. From the time we checked in, to the time we drove away we had the staff at BHI there to make every dream and wish come true. It honestly felt like we were coming home and having a family wedding at our great great grandparents home. That sounds strange to say, but we were really looking for beautiful venue with a bit of history and we got that. Not only is the town of Bar Harbor perfect for a wedding, so beautiful, so many things to do- the team at BHI made us feel so special. Briana was there for every question and really became our day of coordinator. When we got there we had a drop off meeting for our decor, and when we left they loaded everything in our car for us. They set up and took down everything. Kept time for us. We didn't have a single worry. Briana & Jared, the staff in the restaurant, the chef, bartenders, housekeeping, valets, and front desk got to know us. We even had a running joke with the pool bartender... he made sure to ask me and ONLY me the last name on the room because I was so excited to say my new last name. They were all just so sweet. We cannot wait to spend every anniversary here for years to come.

Gorgeous, Memorable, Cannot Wait to Visit Them Again

To say that we are obsessed with this venue would be an absolute understatement. From the moment we set foot in BHI for our venue tour, my husband and I knew that this place would be very tough to beat. It had everything we were looking for in our venue. Lots of natural beauty with a classic/vintage nautical Maine vibe and the bonus part was their rich history as a member of the Bar Harbor/MDI area. We absolutely loved all the vintage newspapers, photos and maps that were displayed everywhere.
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鈥檓 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鈥檓 so happy I didn鈥檛 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.

Simply amazing!

We chose bar harbor inn for our venue and it was one of the best decisions we made. Everyone went above and beyond to make, not only our day, but our whole stay so special. From the doormen to front desk staff and wedding coordinators, this team was such a pleasure to work with. The views are breathtaking and just what we were looking for when searching for a venue.
Planning the wedding from states away was made easy with Briana鈥檚 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!
