Bar Harbor, Maine
Located on 12 sprawling acres one mile from downtown Bar Harbor and the main entrance to Acadia National Park, the Atlantic Oceanside is close enough for convenience, but set apart from the bustle of town for a more relaxing experience surrounded by nature. Every room has a view of the sea, plus a private balcony or patio from which to enjoy it. Totally remodeled in 2011, the hotel offers varied room styles in several individual buildings backdropped by forested hills. Rooms have Wi-Fi, cable TV with premium channels, an in-room safe, refrigerator and microwave. Shared amenities include indoor and outdoor swimming pools and hot tubs, fitness facility, private pebble beach, and a free shuttle to downtown. The Bistro restaurant offers casual fireside dining in a bright, airy setting with floor-to-ceiling windows showcasing views of Frenchman Bay. Guests may also eat on the deck and patio in season.
