The Bar Harbor Hotel has been through many renovations and locations since it's inception in 1874. It began as a social club and reading room, operated as a yacht club, and finally opened as the Bar Harbor Hotel in 1950.

In 1987 David J. Witham bought the hotel, renamed it the Bar Harbor Inn, and remodeled in 1999.
