    I am looking for suggestions on inns or hotels or b&bs in Southwest Harbor or Northeast Harbor on Mount Desert island for a tuesday and wednesday night in July.

    I will not have a car, so I want something within a mile from town. Also, I'm trying to keep the cost to under $150 per night, preferably closer to $100. There are a number of Inns/B&Bs, but the descriptions all sound the same, so if anyone has any personal recommendations, I'd be grateful.

    I'd thought about Bar Harbor, but I hear that its so touristy. plus, I'll be ferrying over to Great Cranberry Island for a few days after my stay at Southwest/Northeast Harbor (I'll be renting a house on GCI and running an ultramarathon there), and the ferries leave from those towns. Airbnb/Homeaway isn't really helpful because most want weekly rentals.

    Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
