This is probably the fourth time we have stayed here. For our anniversary we we take the weekend and get clams and go to Acadia. We found this place on a whim a few years back and keep going back for the nostalgia of it all. The cabins/cottages are great, roomy, and homey. You can sit out on the porch... More

Great place to stay! Very close to bar harbor and Acadia (a short drive or bike ride) but quiet and away from the hussle and bussle. Kyle was really helpful and accommodating. Nice quaint rooms. Great for our dog. Dog trail in land. Wonderful pool, lots of land to spend time with family and friends, and right on the water.... More

An overall pleasurable experience. Beautiful view of the bay, and the grounds are well maintained and spacious. The pool is heated and comfortable. The rooms are dated but comfortable. We loved staying here and it's also pet friendly. Fun

While the outside is pretty the inside is not. Poor sheets only 3 pillows and a tv out of the 80's. Love the view and sitting in front stoop is nice should have sprung for a cottage as we were close to road. Manager was nice about towels and putting us back from road. Kids excited abt pool and I...

We stumbled on "The Colony", visiting Bar Harbour for the first time, and, after speaking with the Manager and his Wife, we booked 3 nights in Unit #2. The Cottage was clean, roomy, and had all amenities we needed for a wonderful stay. The location, by the Bay, is excellent and the grounds are nicely kept in all aspects together... More

We did not expect the hotel rooms to be so much spacious and it gives the comfort and ambience of cottages. The lawn in front of rooms and ocean view just across the road is mesmerizing. The rooms are comfortable and clean. Would recommend this hotel whenever visiting Acadia National Park, Maine.

We stayed here for 5 days in June 2015 and absolutely loved it. If you are looking for ultra modern, ultra chic this is not the place for you. If you are looking for a nice cabin on the coast of Maine with lovely people, gorgeous views and near to Acadia, then this is the place to stay. I would... More

This place describes itself as providing "ultra-modern facilities and comfortable accommodations." Nothing could be further from the truth! We stayed in a duplex cabin that allowed our dog. While that was a plus, it was about the only one. The room was out-dated and in need of an extensive cleaning. There was black mold on our shower curtain, several large... More

We got a call that a friend had died so we had to travel to Bar Harbor to make funeral arrangements. We called a place where we often stay and they were already booked. They suggested The Colony. Although we have been past many times, we never really noticed it. There are white cabins in two rows with adequate parking... More
