We stopped here on a whim, and were so glad we did. The cottages were reasonably priced and a short drive to Acadia and Bar Harbor. It was also within walking distance to a couple of restaurants. The cottages are basically furnished but comfortable- and have a mini fridge! There are also vintage details throughout. The view is wonderful too,... More

Very Quiet, Nice view. Loved so much! Not too far from Bar Harbor downtown. Very delicious carry out pizza place in 1 minute. If you have many kids, you will love this place. Just take a sleeping bag with you.

We spent two nights here in mid-August and enjoyed it very much. We had one of the single cabins. It was roomy, comfortable and clean. We liked the fact that the grounds were so spacious and green. We're dog people, and while we didn't have our pup with us, it was fun to see other guests playing on the common... More

We rented a cottage overlooking the bay, and the view is marvelous! Its so close to the entrance of Acadia National Park and the town of Bar Harbor. The buss basses right by the Colony so you can easily go around the island without any worries. We cycled into town, its probably a half mile but very close. The property... More

There is an awful lot of accomodation choices in Bar Harbour, but we wanted something less obvious. This place is out of town a few miles and it has probably one of the best settings on the water. The room was indeed dated but clean. we did not use the TV, fridge, or microwave nor the pool for that matter... More

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

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...
