Going counter clockwise (recommended) after cheticamp . It was the first "real" looking place we came across. Looking for breakfast, we were not let down. Menu is a bit off and out of the ordinary. Staff were great. Spot was nice. I recommend a pit stop here.

This is a family owned business. The staff are very friendly and helpful. The full size bed is extremely comfortable, the linen and abundant towels smell so fresh due to the staff hanging them in the ocean breeze and the bath/shower was very clean and pressure strong. I love that! Where the room misses desire is no shampoo, blow dryer... More

Good for a quick stay, not longer. No housekeeping service. No cell service, internet hit and miss. No phone in room. Restaurant - morning waitress good, girls at night uninterested. Pop is 3 bucks for less than a can, no refills, fountain pop. Food mediocre.

We were there in off season and this was open. It was also the least expensive in the area. The room was a room, the bed was comfortable. Cable did not work, but unfair to hold this against them as we did not seek assistance. Area was beautiful so no reason to complain

The Mountain View has some motel rooms and a number of stand-alone cottages. The buildings are spread out and the grounds are well kept. We stayed in a 2 bedroom cottage. The kitchen had a full sized refrigerator and range/stove, plus a microwave, toaster, coffee maker and sink. The 2 bedrooms had double beds (which my husband found a little... More

The people here are wonderful all our meals were very good but you pay too much for what you get. The cottages would be better with a small living room.Prices I was quoted not what we were charged. Restaurant prices quite reasonable.

The servers were warm and lovely, with a good recommendation for the meal. We weren't sure what to expect, based on our experiences in motel restaurants, but it was a nice meal. We split the crab sandwich and seafood chowder. A tasty snack on our journey through the park!

It was a true pleasure being a guest at The Mountain View Motel & Cottages for a week in late August. I can't say enough about the scenic location and family atmosphere of this gem of a place. If you're looking for a nice, quiet, feels like home type of place, this is it! I was treated like FAMILY there... More
