header image: the inn

The Black Friar Inn has an ideal in-town location tucked away on a quiet side street in the center of Bar Harbor. This in-town bed and breakfast has fine architectural woodwork salvaged from old area mansions (dubbed cottages by the wealthy summer residents of the 1800s) creating an old European charm to the inn. There is easy access to all of the village by foot and right around the corner is Bar Island for low tide waterfront strolls.

Each morning you dine in our restaurant and order from the full breakfast menu. Later in the day the pub is a casual place to enjoy a pint and a bite, meet some locals, and share the stories of your Acadia National Park Adventures, kayak trips, biking, and explorations. Our full-service dining is highly rated, and has fresh off-the-boat seafood and locally sourced ingredients when available. There is a roof deck to relax on as the sun goes down and the stars come out.

Browse our six unique and historic rooms and choose a sanctuary for your Acadia adventure.
