A vacation in Bar Harbor, Maine is a great vacation anytime of the year, but for gorgeous colorful foliage, crisp fall air and to have Acadia National Park practically to yourself, then fall is definitely a great time to visit! At the Quimby House Inn, we enjoy living in downtown Bar Harbor all year round, but with each season comes new reasons to love being in Bar Harbor. The winter brings snow and peace to our town, while spring brings the joys of nature (and the town!) coming back to life. Summer offers warm temperatures and beautiful Bar Harbor weather, while fall in Bar Harbor is a fantastic sight, with gorgeous technicolor trees, fantastic end-of-season deals and a break from the heat and humidity of summer. Fall in Bar Harbor is definitely the place to be!

As we continue to learn more about the dangers of tanning beds and overexposure to the sun, the popularity of the traditional tanning methods seems to be decreasing.

The Fire Of 1947

Prior to 1947 if you were traveling to Bar Harbor you would likely have driven down Millionaires’ Row on your way into town. A stunning view of grand estates that were seasonal homes and summer cottages along Frenchman Bay were a common sight. Mount Desert Island, home to Bar Harbor, was known as the summer retreat for the wealthy. Historic hotels along with the estates kept the town of Bar Harbor and surrounding towns on Mount Desert Island a place for the rich and famous. But on October 17, 1947 everything changed.

Why Should I Get A Massage?

Most are well aware that the pace that we live our lives today is resulting in dangerous levels of stress causing illness, disease, and fatigue. We are sacrificing our health, happiness, and relationships because we have forgotten the simple task of relaxation. But what is hard for many to believe is that by taking the time to relax and let go, you will create more time and energy to do the tasks at hand. Massage therapy is a wonderful way to reconnect with the peace inside and to help heal us of the damage that stress has done.
