Luxury Accommodations in Downtown Bar Harbor

Tastefully decorated rooms with the finest amenities

Our Maine house features 23 luxury rooms and suites all tastefully outfitted in harmonious colors, handsome wall coverings, handcrafted furnishings, and all the creature comforts. Each is uniquely different with its own charm.

At Balance Rock Inn, your comfort and experience is very important to us.  In order to make your stay with us as memorable as possible, we offer an unparalleled list of amenities and services.  Our staff delights in making sure that our guests received the highest level of attention beginning before arrival and lasting to the day of departure.

Early risers can find a selection of tea and freshly brewed coffee in the Piano Room every morning at 7am. In addition you will find our complimentary dvd selection, public computer work station, and for those that need to catch up on their daily news we provide a complimentary local newspaper. The traditional full complimentary buffet breakfast is served from 8am – 10am in the Dining Room. Most guests like to sit and enjoy the spectacular view from the Sundeck and Veranda while enjoying their morning meal. Our menu provides a wide selection; cold cereals, homemade granola, yogurt, fresh fruit, and assorted breads, bagels, and baked goods. Hot entrees change daily ensuring all guests receive a large variety of their morning favorites.

French doors from the Inn’s Lobby lead to the gracefully columned Veranda Bar with its slowly whirring fans and breathtaking view of the ocean and surrounding islands. In the afternoon you will find assorted refreshments and baked cookies to enjoy. In the late afternoon and evenings the Veranda Bar presents small plates, a weekly dinner, and a wide choice of libations with various special drinks. It’s a relaxing time to converse with other guests or just soak in the splendid surroundings.

As you step out from the Veranda onto the Sundeck you will find plenty of places to lounge and soak in the afternoon sun by our heated swimming pool overlooking the water. Guests also enjoy the gazebo for some added shade on the warmer summer days and in the evenings when it starts to get a little bit cooler you can enjoy our popular fire pit as well. Down past the pool area are our meticulously groomed lawns and aromatic flower gardens, a perfect spot for an afternoon picnic.
