26 Years Of Warm Welcome...

A family-run place that caters to families, helping people make memorable experiences.

The High Seas Motel is a quiet, family owned and operated motel on Mount Desert Island off the coast of Downeast Maine. For over 2 decades and 2 generations, we have been welcoming visitors to Bar Harbor, the home of Acadia National Park. Whether it’s a short weekend trip or a week-long stay, we provide basic but spacious, clean, and comfortable accommodations for every guest we have the privilege of checking in

We are located only 2 miles from the visitor center and main entrance to Acadia National Park , and only a short 4-mile drive to Downtown Bar Harbor. While our out-of-town location provides a quieter and more relaxing environment for our guests, you still have the availability of dining and entertainment options nearby.

We’re sure you’ll enjoy your stay as you experience everything Bar Harbor has to offer.
