Make your vacation extra special by choosing the right inn for your vacation.

At the Quimby House Inn and Spa, we are nestled in downtown Bar Harbor and we know what it takes to make our visitors feel welcome. We also know what makes a great inn for your next vacation, so we wanted to offer you a few tips on what to look for when choosing your next hotel to make sure that your vacation is relaxing, enjoyable and everything you hope that it will be.

  1. Choose a location that is right in the midst of things.  You don’t want to spend time driving from your hotel to the areas you want to visit, especially in a busy town like Bar Harbor, where parking can be relatively scarce in the midst of the summer season. You want an inn or hotel that offers free onsite parking that is in close proximity to shoppingrestaurants and entertainment.

  2. Find a lodging that has an onsite spa. This will help with the relaxation factor of your vacation, especially if the spa offers a massage therapist that will come to your room!  Different options for massage therapy are also beneficial, depending on your specific relaxation needs, you want a spa that will offer you different massage choices, from Swedish massage to deep tissue massage.

  3. Look for a lodging that has well maintained rooms on a well maintained property. Also, an inn with a variety of room styles can be beneficial, especially if you plan to return again some day with a group of friends or family members or if you have special needs. Bar Harbor inns that offer suites, as well as rooms with small kitchenettes could also be good for larger groups or families. Wi-Fi, cable television and air conditioning are other services you may want to look for when reserving your room.

  4. And finally, find an inn that can give you personable and friendly service. Having a lovely location and facility is one thing, but if the staff is rude and unhelpful, this is not a place where you will enjoy your stay. Look for a friendly receptionist and kind and helpful innkeepers and you can be assured that the staff will help make sure your stay is enjoyable.

For your next vacation, make sure you’ve chosen the right inn by following these suggestions and you will be sure to have an excellent stay away from home.
