Subject: Re: Bar Harbor - Acadia National Park
Hi Barbara --

When we can, we always stay at the Inn at Canoe Point. It's off the road on the way into Bar Harbor - It's very private and the innkeepers are terrific - It's right on the point overlooking Frenchmen's Bay and I would recommend it over all others. (Our favorite room is called, I think, the Garden Room (as it has floor to ceiling windows on 3 sides) It's very small, but the view is worth it. Breakfast is a treat and afternoons with cookies and coffee in the sitting/comme breakfast room is very nice.

As for restaurants, we like Havana's and George's in Bar Harbor, Redfields* (in southwest harbor or northeast) Usually, reservations are necessary in most places during peak seasons, but check to be sure before you go. There is a wonderful barbeque joint called Keenan's - family style but great ribs, etc. I will ask about Lobster places, but don't know them offhand. (if you want)

If you need phone numbers, I'll be happy to look them up for you.

We adore Acadia and the hiking and ambiance are terrific especially at the end of May and in September -- summer is very, very, very crowded! Regards, Susie Newton, MA * --- These restaurants are more upscale - especially Redfields - but they are very good and worth it.
