Annual Bar Harbor & Acadia Excursion October 20, 21 and 22

It is not too late to make your Cromwell Harbor Motel reservation.

Have you been to Acadia Park and Bar Harbor this year?  Each year a million people travel from all over the world to visit this beautiful place.  Now it’s your turn!

We’ve got the whole Mt. Desert Island reserved for the weekend of October 20 – 22 (well not really, but it kind of feels that way) and you won’t want to miss this popular CVOA event. You already know how special the Park is, especially with the fall foliage. Add to that a nice motel to stay at, lots of good eats in Bar Harbor, the infamous COVA happy hours, and to top it off, you get to enjoy all this with your CVOAfriends. Feel free to bring guests with you as well.
We will be staying at the Cromwell Harbor Motel once again. It is in easy walking distance to downtown Bar Harbor. The rooms are $88 or $98 per night, subject to availability. We have not pre-booked any rooms, so it is recommended you make your reservation with the Cromwell Motel ASAP. You can cancel the reservation up to 7 days in advance, with a $20 cancellation fee. First night deposit is required at the time of booking. Be sure to tell them you are part of the CVOA group.

Our weekend goes like this: arrive Friday, hopefully early enough to get in a bike ride, a hike, or just a stroll through town. Friday is the traditional Al Diamon Memorial pub-crawl. We will meet up for happy hour around 5 pm at a local watering hole, or maybe we will do our own happy hour at the hotel. After happy hour, people head out on their own to find that perfect meal in one of the 40 area restaurants (see www.barharborinfo.com/dining for a list of restaurants). The motel does not have a restaurant so you will want to head into town for breakfast and lunch, or bring your own. Some of the rooms have kitchenettes; so inquire when booking your reservation. Saturday night plans are up in the air at this point, but we will have some sort of group get together for sure.
  • There are literally hundreds of miles of hiking trails, some more challenging than others, but all are spectacular.
  • The Carriage Trails are great for walking or biking and pass through some of the more beautiful sections of the Park.
  • Biking the Park Loop is a great experience, probably one of the most scenic rides in the state.
  • Kayaking around the many islands in the harbor is also a fun activity.
  • Golf at one of the outstanding golf courses on the Island including Kebo Valley and Northeast Harbor Golf Club.
  • Shop in the town of Bar Harbor as the stores are offering end of season deals.
  • Farmer’s market on Sunday morning just down the street, with lots of great local produce.
  • Get up early and catch the sunrise on top of Cadillac – it is worth the effort!
Make your reservation at the Cromwell Harbor Motel, and let Pete Weston know you are going to attend. It is that easy!
