The Bar Harbor Inn is a shingled lodge built in 1887 that offers laid-back comfort on Frenchman's Bay, one of Maine's most scenic coastal spots. Also overlooking Frenchman Bay, the Ullikana, a B&B with a bit of a split personality: one half is a Tudor manse, the other a yellow country house. But all together, it breathes new life into the traditional New England model, with its a whimsical collection of abstract sculptures dotting the grounds. Don’t like the close confines of a B&B? Harborside Hotel is a 187-room Bar Harbor hotel and full-service resort on the waterfront. It has a big pool, tennis courts, stone fireplaces, and a spa. The only catch: it's only open between mid-May and late October.

A far cry from the quaint B&Bs for which New England is famous, this full-service seasonal resort in the coastal Maine town of Bar Harbor has 187 guest rooms and suites, most with semi-private balconies and waterfront views.

Overlooking Frenchman Bay, this pair of inns—one a Tudor mansion, the other a yellow country house with a wide wraparound porch—breathes new life into the traditional New England B&B with a whimsical collection of abstract sculpture dotting the grounds.
