Harborside Hotel and Marina, Bar Harbor, Maine.

Harborside Hotel & Marina

The Harborside Hotel, Spa & Marina is the premier resort facility in Bar Harbor, Maine. Nestled in downtown Bar Harbor, and just moments away from Acadia National Park. The Harborside offers breathtaking views of Frenchman’s Bay and ocean beyond. Guests can enjoy the Spa amenities of the adjacent Bar Harbor Club.

Acadia National Park and the city of Bar Harbor have a long and storied history as a vacation getaway. Native Americans had been summering in the Acadia region for hundreds of years before the area was discovered by Champlain in 1604. By the mid 1800’s, Bar Harbor had become the premier resort destination for “rusticators” – Victorian men and women of wealth and influence who came to Mount Desert Island to escape the heat and bustle of the (pre-air conditioning!) big cities up and down the Eastern Seaboard. Today Bar Harbor remains a popular summer vacation destination with many shops, restaurants, artisans and family activities, and Acadia National Park, one of the most visited National Parks in the U.S.
