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.
