Home Away Bar Harbor Maine

About Bar Harbor Bar Harbor is located on Mount Desert Island in Maine, about 3 hours north of Portland. The New England vacation spot gets four distinct seasons: superb summers, relatively harsh winters, a foggy springtime, and chilly and spectacular autumns. Here you will find granite cliffs meeting with the Atlantic on the dramatic coastline. Settled in 1763, Bar Harbor holds a rich history for fisherman, artists, and seaside culture that can still be enjoyed year-round at any age. Outdoorsmen, photographers, beachcombers, artists, and foodies alike will find the national parks, outdoor living, shopping, and history of Bar Harbor worthwhile. Things to do in Bar Harbor A highlight of the entire region is Bar Harbor’s Acadia National Park. Over 50 square miles of freshwater lakes, mountains for hiking, and biking trails with stunning coastal views make up the protected land. 2016 marks the park’s centennial, which will be celebrated with events and festivals throughout the year. 45 miles of carriage roads offer maintained routes for bikers, walkers, cross-country skiers, and snowshoers, depending on the season. Kayaking in warmer weather provides dramatic views of the rocky coastline from the sea. Hiking is paramount at Bar Harbor. The island even boasts the tallest mountain on the east coast, Cadillac Mountain, which overlooks the Atlantic. Take in the local wildlife with a bird watching tour through the national park, or whale watch along the coast. In the summer you can wade into the tide pools that host an abundance of marine life at your toes! Whether you’re fine dining or stopping off at a seafood shack, you’ll find incredible locally caught lobster available. After treating yourself to local delicacies, take the historic walk that loops through downtown Bar Harbor and passes 25 notable and historic mansions, churches, and structures dating from 1860. Shore Path, less than a mile long, begins at Frenchman Bay near Agamont Park. The trail is lined with roses and provides sprawling views of the Porcupine Islands across the water. The Bar Island walk takes you across a shelly sand bar from Bridge Street to Bar Island, and you’ll get to see views of West Street’s Millionaire’s Row. Make sure to check for low tide to get across! Check the Bar Harbor events calendar for monthly art walks and biweekly concerts in the summer. For more culture, check out the Abbe Museum, which is affiliated with the Smithsonian and commemorates the Native American history of the island’s Wabankaki tribe. Day trips from Bar Harbor Camden and Rockland are two popular stops about a two hour drive south of Bar Harbor, and you’ll pass plenty of other seaside towns along the way. Hike to the top of Mt. Battle for incredible views of the harbor and Penobscot Bay. The Penobscot Narrows Bridge and Observatory in Fort Knox State Park is the only one of its kind in the country. Take in 360 degree views from the tower. Lubec is rural coastal town nearby two hours north of the island. The tranquil and rugged community is home to the West Quoddy Lighthouse (the easternmost point of the United States). Canada’s Capobello Island is across the bridge, with historic structures and the famous Bay of Fundy (of course, you’ll need your passport to cross the border). On the way, stop for a picnic at Jasper Beach, made up of billions of polished pebbles (make sure you bring collapsible chairs for more comfortable seating)!
