"If you want upscale and modern you probably won't find it in Bar Harbour. You might want to stay outside of Bar harbour and drive in to see the sights. A nice place is the Lucern in but it is about 20 miles outside of Bar Harbour"

Where is the best hotel or inn in Bar Harbor, Maine for a honeymoon escape?

Lissa :
"I went to Bar Harbor too for my honeymoon!! It's a beautiful spot, one of my all time favorites. The first night we stayed at just some cheap motel. BUT, the next few nights we spent at The Bluenose Inn. It is beautiful. My parents got it for us for our wedding gift. go to to see pics of it & to get information. There are also a lot of quant bed & breakfasts in the area. You have to go to Jordan's for breakfast, it is the best place to eat!! When are you coming up???"

Good luck!"

I am visiting for 2 days in Sept. Most of the places I've looked at in Bar Harbor are a bit steep for me. Because I'm traveling alone, I'm a bit skeptical about staying in more remote-low cost motel/cottage type units. Am I better off staying in Ellsworth for 1/2 the price? What's the drive like from Ellsworth to Bar Harbor and the park? What are some of my must do's and see's for an itinerary like mine?

"Trust me. I am a New Englander. Bar Harbour!"
kris :
"I love Acadia!!! My husband and I have stayed both in Bar Harbor and in Ellsworth. Next time we go up there, we're definitely staying in Ellsworth again. The drive isn't bad, maybe 15 minutes to get to the park itself (but don't take my word for it, I'm a terrible judge of distance/time)."

Dipstick/Stockpuppet/Troll - Use of any of these names to describe The Stalker and fans know instantly who is the subject matter. She's taken over, and been embraced, apparently, by the moderators at IMDb David Caruso Message Board. Many fans have been barred from posting there. Why? Because they challenge Sockpuppet to account for her words.

Been a while since I've seen a movie alone, and yesterday I remembered why. The theater was the new Landmark at President and Aliceanna streets in Harbor East in Baltimore. Landmark still had that new leather smell (and a full bar in the lobby?

Day three in Sydney was extremely busy and of course, food-filled. We started off early at the Good Living Growers’ Market in Pyrmont, right on the harbor. Bonnie, a classmate of mine, suggested I check out this market, and I am so glad she did. I love me some good farmers markets, and this one was no exception.
