About Bar Harbor

Bar Harbor may have been a quiet, undiscovered haven for decades, but today its cool summers and ample natural beauty welcomes thousands of visitors from near and far. Located on Mount Desert Island, this seaside village is ideal for tourists who enjoy a small-town atmosphere and all of the charm that comes from being in close proximity to the water. Book Bar Harbor vacation rentals with views of the Atlantic coastline or rugged Cadillac Mountain, and prepare to be impressed.

Climate

Bar Harbor residents and visitors enjoy mild summers and cold winters. Temperatures in July and August rarely top 80 degrees, while winter temperatures typically hover in the 20s and 30s. Summer is generally the most popular time to visit, given the pleasant weather, but fall also draws crowds thanks to the area's stunning foliage. Whenever you decide to visit, pack appropriately by bringing clothing for cool weather as temperatures can fluctuate significantly from day-to-day and from daytime to nighttime.

If you fly into the area, book your flight into Hancock County - Bar Harbor Airport or Bangor International Airport, which is about 50 miles from Bar Harbor. In Bangor, it's easy to rent a car and drive to and from Bar Harbor vacation rentals and the area's top attractions.
