A Stunning Getaway at the Entrance to Arcadia National Park

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 exploration of 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.


THe Harborside


Sitting directly adjacent to the water with incredible views of the bay, the Harborside is the ideal place to begin your Mount Desert Island adventures. The features of this hotel include multiple dining options, a wine bar, a bayside pool, and a full-service spa. You’ll be right at the center of the shops and restaurants in downtown Bar Harbor.

I was surprised how dynamic the instructors were, and the twist they were able to put not the subject matter to keep my interest. I will definitely be making Western CPE my in-person conference CPE vendor of choice in the future.
