Bar Harbor Winter Wonderland
I know, no one wants to talk about winter when the summer hasn’t even finished yet. These trees in the photo above are full of wonderful colors right now, too. But let’s face it, Bar Harbor is wonderful in winter, especially when it snows. Did you know the Park grooms the carriage trails for cross-country skiing? How about the miles of snow-shoeing that can be had? And even though the Park is required to plow the Ocean Drive (meaning Sand Beach and Thunder Hole are still accessible), the Park Loop Road is open to snowmobiles?
Every year we get guests who come just for the peace and quiet, but we get a lot more guests when there’s a lot of snow on the ground. Acadia is magical in winter, even if the shops are all closed up (there’s a fair number of restaurants still open, though). Yes, it’s cold, but it’s warm inside after a fun day of winter hiking and exploring.
Now, the Main Inn is not open in the winter and we don’t serve breakfast, but our two suites buildings are open. Three of the units open this winter will be kitchenettes or have a full kitchen, depending on the room. Three others don’t have these amenities but there are places to eat, and the grocery store is a 30-second drive away (many people in these rooms take advantage of our coffee and tea in the rooms and buy bagels if they don’t rent a kitchenette). And our prices are A LOT lower than during the summer.
To book your room, check our availability calendar to see what’s available, and yes, we do fill up quite often: https://secure.thinkreservations.com/miramonte/reservations
