Great room with fireplace, balcony, and view of Frenchman Bay

Edmond, Oklahoma

We stayed in the main building and in an upper room overlooking Frenchman Bay. The rooms are large, very confortable,with upscale amenities. The view of the bay is fantastic. Bluenose is a short drive out of the town of Bar Harbor and was quite. Also it is just a short drive to the entrance and ranger station at Acadia.

Wonderful Views, great amenities and service

This was our second visit to the Bluenose Inn. The last time was 15 years ago and we thoroughly enjoyed our 2nd visit. We had a very spacious suite in Mizzentop to enjoy the fabulous Bay views. . We loved the fireplace and the huge bathroom with double vanities. The staff were exceptionally friendly and helpful. The great room with fireplace was a nice place to sit an relax with a glass of wine, read or in the evening listen to the live entertainment. The Looking Glass restaurant had exceptional dining with fabulous Bay views. The Inn is about a 15-20 minute walk to downtown . It was a wonderful stay for us!
