Traveling is immeasurably better when everyone is happy. We have designed these special family activities in Bar Harbor at the Acadia Inn to make your next vacation a hit for everyone. Our complimentary activities are catered to guests of all ages. For our younger guests, kid-friendly amenities such as scavenger hunts, bedtime stories and no-tear bath amenities are just the beginning. So relax, pop in your child’s favorite DVD and see how easy family travel can be!
After a day in the playing park or sightseeing out on the water, kick back and relax in our backyard with a family game of Bocce Ball. Our backyard area offers something for everyone in your family. Sit back and relax in an Adirondack chair with a book, hang like a monkey from the monkey bars on our children’s playground, play a round of lawn Jenga or take a dip in our outdoor heated pool.
We want to ensure that the whole family can enjoy a break together, create memories and not only entertain the children but also give the parents a chance to relax. Set on 4 acres of land, our backyard offers rooms for the kids to explore, our children’s playground offers a safe place for kids to play.
Getting the family together has never been easier! At the Acadia Inn we offer accommodations for your Maine group vacation. Gather up your relatives for a family reunion they’ll never forget, celebrate the graduation of a family member, or arrange the family in excellent accommodations before your wedding. No matter what you’re celebrating, the staff at the Acadia Inn will provide you and your guests with friendly service and a comfortable stay. We also offer a small meeting room for your guests to gather or even catch a movie!
Choose your theme and a black bear, moose or seal stuffed animal with corresponding children’s book will be placed in your room while you are out enjoying the park! Sit down, relax and enjoy a story with your children after a long day of adventure. $30 per package. To book contact guest services.
