    Where to Stay, Work, Eat and Play with Your Dog in Bar Harbor and Acadia National Park

    Despite the cabin fever many of us are dealing with, there’s a plus side to remote work. You get to spend more time with your furry friend (i.e. best co-worker ever) and you can work where your heart desires. The trouble is, when you want to get away, it can be a challenge to find a place that is both work-friendly and dog-friendly. You don’t want to book a trip only to have to leave your best companion behind! The solution? Bar Harbor and Acadia National Park. Bar Harbor has plenty of places to stay, work remotely and dine with your pup, while Acadia National Park was voted the most dog-friendly national park in New England by Outside Magazine.
