The simple, comfy Acadia Hotel is nicely situated overlooking Bar Harbor’s village green, easily accessible to in-town activities and the free shuttle buses running around the island. A handsome and none-too-large home dating from the late 19th century, the hotel remodeled twice in the 2010s, including adding the Boat House annex with a few extra rooms. The place feels fresh, with patterned upholstery, flat-screens and refrigerators in every room, new paint jobs, and a stylish new suite with a picture window looking out at Cadillac Mountain. Some rooms are slightly underground, a few steps down, but they get plenty of light. The economy rooms are arguably the best value in a pricey town (particularly in winter, as it’s the rare MDI hotel open year-round).
