There’s never a bad time to take a trip to The Balance Rock Inn, be it spring, summer, winter, or fall. But with its upcoming 30th anniversary, now is the best time ever to grab everyone you know and haul them to Bar Harbor!
This AAA Four Diamond Property is family-owned, and that’s evident through their hospitality and meticulous attention to detail. While maintaining their “Maine-ness” (their serene charm, that is), the Balance Rock Inn also somehow manages to offer the same luxury of a much larger resort. Travelers from all over the globe have been taking notice, as General Manager Claire Miles explains, “We truly love serving our guests and being given the opportunity to share such a beautiful and historic property with visitors from all over the world."
A trip to the inn this summer is the perfect romantic getaway or family vacation. If you’re looking for romance, you can’t do much better than the quiet coast of Maine. The inn is set on a three-acre promontory, giving it unparalleled panoramic views of Frenchman’s Bay. It’s as peaceful and homey as they come, but should you desire a little small-town flair, downtown Bar Harbor, with its dozens of fine shops and restaurants, is only steps away. Meanwhile, your rustically-inspired room or suite will make your jaw drop. Each and every one features harmonious colors, handsome wall coverings, handcrafted furnishings, and all the creature comforts you’d expect from a luxury resort. On top of that, many rooms also have fireplaces, whirlpool baths, saunas and private porches.
While the lodging is fantastic, the dining at the Balance Rock is positively to die for. The inn distinct dining at the Veranda Bar, which offers a menu of Maine favorites using only the finest local ingredients. Executive Chef Joshua Heikkinen puts it plainly, saying, "Giving our guests the freshest ingredients and new and creative dishes makes dining with us an experience. You'll never be bored, our menu is always evolving and changing." Indeed, as with the rest of the resort, boredom is seldom seen or experienced at Balance Rock; there’s simply too much fun to be had!
So if you’re seeking a peaceful escape, a natural paradise, or just someplace where you can think, the Balance Rock Inn seems like a pretty logical choice, doesn’t it? Besides, their birthday is coming up. Why not get them the present of your presence?
