CONTINUING EDUCATION FOR TAX & FINANCIAL PROFESSIONALS

Bar Harbor,ME
July 12th – 16th

The gateway to Acadia National Park, Bar Harbor is a stunning getaway located on Mount Desert Island along Maine’s Frenchman Bay.

The island is rich with history, with walking tours offering a glimpse into a past where wealthy elites used the island as an exclusive getaway. Today the town also serves as a launching point for exploring the beautiful Atlantic coastline and Acadia National Park. On the island, sightseeing and outdoor recreation opportunities exist everywhere you look. Offshore, you’ll find more of the same, with whale watching and boat tours of the rugged, cliffy coastline. When you’re done exploring for the day, sampling the seafood that the region is famed for—lobsters and clams especially—is a must. We’ll use the Harborside Hotel, Spa & Marina, located right next to the water in downtown Bar Harbor, as our base to explore the region’s rich history and beautiful natural attractions.

Western CPE has contracted discounted accommodations with the resort properties, however all customers are responsible for making their own reservations directly with the hotel either through the reservation link on our website or by calling the hotel directly and specifying you are a Western CPE conference attendee. Group rates apply to initial room blocks, which occasionally sell out. It’s always best to make your room reservation immediately after booking your conference.
