Welcome to the Balance Rock Inn
Bar Harbor’s AAA Four-Diamond oceanfront lodging
Built as a family “cottage” in 1903, when wealthy tycoons selected the most desirable locations along the rocky, island-studded Maine coast for their summer season mansions, Balance Rock Inn today presents romantic ambiance of times gone by and luxury amenities to make your vacation relaxing and unforgettable.
Set on a secluded tree-covered property with panoramic views of Frenchman’s Bay the Inn commands a breathtaking waterfront location on a promontory of nearly three acres, jutting into the ocean. The Inn offers a tremendous sense of privacy and serenity, yet steps away lies downtown Bar Harbor with its village green and many fine shops and restaurants. Delight your senses in one of our comfortably appointed guest rooms or luxury suites, tastefully outfitted in harmonious colors, handsome wall coverings, handcrafted furnishings, and all the creature comforts. Each accommodation is unique with features such as ocean views, fireplaces, whirlpool baths, saunas and private porches. Indulge in the peacefulness of the Inn’s surroundings, with ocean views from your room, the Inn common areas, or the pool and grounds. As a Balance Rock Inn guest you’re pampered with incomparable lodging, amenities and service, a wonderful vacation destination for spring, summer, or fall. With a history of hospitality, spectacular scenery, and innate charm… Balance Rock Inn has it all.
