Our Bar Harbor motel has clean, comfortable and quiet rooms on Lower Main Street in the beautiful coastal village of Bar Harbor Maine. Our grounds, historically known as the Victory Gardens, have beautifully arranged flowering gardens and planters which add to the peaceful country setting, a hallmark of our establishment. Our property is situated along the pebbled Cromwell Brook, fed by the Acadian mountain range. We are a short walk to the famous waters of Frenchman Bay where Explorer Samuel De Champlain first stepped ashore onto Mount Desert Island in 1604.
