I went to Bar Harbor and stayed at a beautiful little B&B and it was an amazing trip. There were small restaurants and shops within walking distance, and even in the rain it was an enjoyable walk. It was right on the ocean so there was a great smell. I will definitely go back!

Nearby is the Acadia National Park which is beautiful and you can easily spend hours or days there and not be satisfied. There's a great loop road with wonderful stops all around. Then pop right back into Bar Harbor for some seafood and a beautiful sunset. Amazing!
