With sweeping views of Frenchman Bay, the Bluenose Inn is the perfect hotel accommodation choice for a memorable vacation on
Maine’s famed Mount Desert Island, home
of Acadia National Park.

Here, atop a granite terraced hillside, you will quickly discover the allure of Maine’s rockbound coast. The ideal location of our hotel places us just minutes away from the host of attractions that make this corner of Maine one of the nation’s most popular retreats.
The original building on the site of the Bluenose Inn was constructed in 1884 as a summer estate of Mrs. William Morris Hunt, an artist’s widow. The stonework from this palatial “cottage,” which she named Mizzentop, remains beneath the building that bears its name.

Accommodations in today’s resort is defined the luxurious 53-room Mizzentop which also houses our registration office, Business Center, the inviting Great Room Piano Lounge, and our Vista Room meeting facility. A second building houses our indoor heated pool, hot tub, steam room and fitness center. Our grounds feature an outdoor heated pool, garden paths, and, of course, our panoramic views of Frenchman Bay.



The Bluenose Inn has no resort fees. Sorry, no pets and no smoking allowed.
