Weekend Getaway in Bar Harbor
Get away for the weekend in this upscale, coastal Maine town. Maine has plenty of activities to offer for everyone from outdoorsmen to beach goers. Bar Harbor Manor, a 22-room inn, provides a relaxing and peaceful place to stay and is just minutes from the center of town and Bar Harbor beaches. Guests love the friendly, local environment the hosts provide. Newly renovated, Bar Harbor Manor has clean, spacious, and comfortable rooms. Looking for a room with a waterside view? Book your trip at the Bluenose Inn overlooking the Frenchman Bay. The immaculate rooms are airy and private. Stop by Side Street Cafe, one of Bar Harbor’s most popular places to dine. Drop in for Happy Hour and have one of their coveted specialty margaritas or enjoy a meal off their extensive menu.
Get outdoors and enjoy the beauty Maine has to offer. Acadia National Park is just a few miles away. Hike the many trails of the first eastern national park. For a more relaxing experience, take a quick walk over to the Village Green. Here, you can find local artists’ work and listen to the Bar Harbor Town Band live. In the evening, take a seat on the Village Green lawn at Outdoor Movie Night. Coming soon, watch Big on July 2nd and Mrs. Doubtfire On July 23rd. Later in the summer, everyone will have a great time picking blueberries on the island at Acadia National Park. Bar Harbor is just over a 7 hour drive from Ridgefield. Though Amtrak does not go to this area, take a train to southern Maine, such as Portland, and drive up the coast and take in Maine’s charm.
