Our one kid/two puppy family gives Winter Harbor Inn an 11/10 because it's very clean, spacious, comfortable, and charming--a short walk from the grocery, restaurants, and historic downtown (cute, artsy, full of fishing boats). A dog-friendly, free shuttle will pick you up at the doorstep and take you around Schoodic Point (the prettiest part of Acadia National Park) and drop you back at the Inn after a hike. The backyard is fenced and has several outdoor seating areas where you can play fetch with Fido, sit by the fire, read a book in the hammock, or have a cookout (grill, wood, utensils, etc. provided) in a beautifully candle-lit setting. We also enjoyed playing board games with our 11 year old (they have hundreds!) one rainy night, how wonderful that our dogs could hang out in the room with us--Leisure Lee, especially, appreciated the dog bed provided. There's on site pet-sitting offered for an extra fee. But not with just anyone! Pam and Arnold are pet experts, breeders (pugs), groomers--they know animals inside/out and really spend time with them (long walks on the beach, playtime, feedings, etc.--they treat pets like people). We asked them to sit with our two puppies (bloodhound and boxer-mix--leather- chewing piranhas, really) from 6 am to 9 pm while we went into Bar Harbor for the day and when we returned Azy was in Pam's lap, and Leisure Lee was asleep, listening to music, by the fire--I don't know of any conventional hotel that offers pet-owners such peace of mind via this service. The breakfast--wow! Fresh fruit, yogurt, granola bars, organic oatmeal, bagels, cream cheese, wheat germ--you can eat healthy if you wish, but they also have pop tarts, kid-cereals, chocolate muffins, fancy creamers for coffee, all sorts of juices, unlimited pet treats and bottled waters. A family on a budget, we loved that we were able to place our own groceries, too, on the fridge shelf provided. That said, Three Sisters Café, down the road a ways, offered great deals on good food when we ate out, and the food stand in front of The Fisherman's Inn had inexpensive lobster rolls to die for. While there, we met an Italian couple, a family from Maine, and a retired librarian--all quiet, conscientious, interesting folks we loved meeting. But Pam and Arnold are the warm, whip-smart people (add to their pet-knowledge incomparable knowledge of fun things to do in the area) that really make the place into a one-of-a-kind, exceptional home away from home--they go way out of their way to make sure their guests are cared for, comfortable, and happy. We loved our trip here, and plan to go back, often.

We were very excited to eat at the Fisherman's Inn Restaurant and were completely disappointed and almost angry as we left. We debated leaving and going somewhere else, but it was too late (everything shuts down around 8, and we needed food.) It took us half an hour to get our drinks - water and iced tea - and over an hour to get our chowder - which is already made and sits in a pot, waiting to be served. When the food did finally come, we were elated and would have actually eaten anything at that point, after waiting an HOUR AND A HALF for our entire meal. We tried to flag down a couple of waitresses in all of the downtime, but they seemed more interested in just standing around in the kitchen area. Even after making eye-contact, heavy eye-contact, with an older woman who seemed to be the owner, or maybe manager, she didn't come over once. Then, after the check arrived, our waitress (Kristen, maybe?) stood in the kitchen chatting with the other waitresses about us. I watched her talk about us, and as soon as she saw me looking, she moved the fastest she ever did as she jumped back. At Fisherman's Inn Restaurant all they care about is the total on the bill and their tip - which, based on the service received, she shouldn't have received one at all. Save your money and your precious time! We will NEVER come back, and will not recommend anyone go here.
Great restaurant. The service couldn't get any better, and their foccacia bread is awesome! I asked and they make it fresh from scratch daily. It's a bit pricey, but nothing too eye popping. And while it's a bit slow, I find that I like it better that way. I get more time to share a few drinks and chat with friends before everyone becomes engulfed with food. And everything tastes so good as well, I highly recommend the Lobster Pie, it's my personal favorite. If you're passing through Winter Harbor for dinner, this is the place to go
My husband and I stopped for lobster rolls. They served them from a lunch wagon. We asked for butter versus mayonnaise. They made them that way for us and they were delicious with plenty of sweet tender lobster. We had a great view sitting outside. The blueberry pie tasted homemade. Nice and casual lunch stop.
