Open Year Round

The weather outside may be frightful, but winter in Bar Harbor is delightful. Once you arrive, you will have plenty to do. You can take a winter hike, go cross-country skiing or snowshoeing on a carriage road at Acadia National Park, lace up your ice skates at Jordan Pond, or try ice fishing on Echo Lake. 
There’s fun indoors too—downtown shopping, a friendly game of darts at a local tavern, chowder for lunch, or soaking in the history and culture of a local museum. Later on, claim a spot next to the fireplace at one of our cozy bed and breakfasts and enjoy a hot cup of cocoa. Bar Harbor can be a wonderful place for a relaxing winter getaway.
