Ocean views and elegant accommodations on the “Most Beautiful Island in America.” With sweeping views of Frenchman Bay, the AAA 4-diamond Bluenose Inn is the perfect hotel accommodation choice for a memorable vacation on Maine’s famed Mount Desert Island, home of Acadia National Park.
Here, atop a granite terraced hillside, you will quickly discover the allure of Maine’s rockbound coast. The ideal location of our hotel places us just minutes away from the host of attractions that make this corner of Maine one of the nation’s most popular retreats.
The original building on the site of the Bluenose Inn was constructed in 1884 as a summer estate of Mrs. William Morris Hunt, an artist’s widow. The stonework from this palatial “cottage,” which she named Mizzentop, remains beneath the building that bears its name.
Accommodations in today’s luxury resort is defined by two elegant guest buildings: the luxurious 52-room Mizzentop which also houses our registration office, Business Center, the inviting Great Room Piano Lounge, Gift Shop and our Vista Room meeting facility; and Stenna Nordica, featuring 45 tastefully decorated rooms and a glass front elevator. A third building houses our indoor heated pool, hot tub, steam room, fitness center and Eden Spa. Our grounds feature an outdoor heated pool, garden paths, and, of course, our panoramic views of Frenchman Bay.
The Bluenose Inn has no resort fees.
