If you prefer a home-style B&B setting, here are some choices in Bar Harbor:

                

If you are looking for lodging with a kitchen and more living space, and plan to stay for several days, be sure to check out these cottages in the Southwest Harbor/Bass Harbor areas:

                              
 


Also, we recommend checking out the Bar Harbor Chamber website and the Southwest Harbor/Tremont Chamber website for more ideas. 

Bar Harbor is a touristy town with more shops, restaurants, and people. Southwest Harbor is quieter, has a few shops and restaurants, and accommodations might be a bit less expensive. Both towns are pretty much equal distance from Festival Center in Somesville (~10-15 minute drive).  There are no places to stay in Somesville.
