The Bluenose Inn

Beautifully Appointed Rooms and Luxurious Suites

A Classic Bar Harbor Hotel

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.

“We stayed in one of their newly acquired rooms which was quite sufficient and had a wonderful view of the water. Great location for exploring the park, but the piano player who plays in the fabulous great room 6 nights a week sets this hotel apart from any other! Highly recommend this hotel. Hard to find any better way to relax after hiking in Acadia!! We even toyed with staying an extra night just to hear him play again.”
