If you have not yet been to the fabulous destination of Mount Desert Island, Maine, now is a great time to plan your trip! According to Travel + Leisure’s 2012 World’s Best Islands, we have been ranked #2 in the Top 10 Islands of the Continental U.S. and Canada.
Prior to 1947 if you were traveling to Bar Harbor you would likely have driven down Millionaires’ Row on your way into town. A stunning view of grand estates that were seasonal homes and summer cottages along Frenchman Bay were a common sight. Mount Desert Island, home to Bar Harbor, was known as the summer retreat for the wealthy. Historic hotels along with the estates kept the town of Bar Harbor and surrounding towns on Mount Desert Island a place for the rich and famous. But on October 17, 1947 everything changed.
Every season in Bar Harbor is magical. But Bar Harbor in the winter is amazing. It’s so quiet, and the locals feel like they’ve finally got their little treasure back to themselves. Summer visitors have mostly gone back to their home states and Bar Harbor has lost that exciting summery feel. Instead it has a wonderful holiday feeling in the air; you can buy Christmas trees along the main street from the local boy scout troop, Santa will be arriving at the Village Green any day now to greet all the town children, and holiday shopping is in full swing in the dozen local shops that are still open. Give us a call today to reserve your room this holiday season and we can help you relax and enjoy the holiday season the way you can only in a small town on the coast of Maine.
