Great dog spot with beautiful sunrises and lots of walking space. Chart Room restaurant is next door and always good, and the bathroom, although small, was updated. Beds are a little on the soft side, but everything was clean and rates are a value!

If you just saw Psycho, you might think twice, but it is actually pretty nice. Duplex cottages, so hopefully your next door neighbor just hiked Cadillac Mtn. then watched the 6 o clock news and went to bed. Clean, good beds, tiny TV...what else can I say... for $69.00 on Acadia (where the Holiday Inn is around 200 bucks), not... More

I stayed at The Colony just the other day and I was truly pleased with not only the cute comfortable private cottages but the totally reasonable rates! I live in Ellsworth and I needed to stay in Bar Harbor for a couple of days for work and I couldn't stomach paying the outrageous rates every other hotel was offering. My... More

I can't rate it excellent because the furnishings are dated - still has tube TV's, but it reminded us so much of the places we used to stay while on family vacations. It's so cute and was very clean. It's minutes to Bar Harbor and the entry to Acadia. We stayed in one of the cottages and the bed was... More

We love this motel. We have gone 4 years in a row and now book next year's visit when we check-out. We book Cottage 18. It looks out over Frenchman's Bay and has the best view, in our opinion. We love Acadia National Park and Cottage 18 has become our home base in between long bike rides, hiking and kayaking... More

First of all, this is a he say and I say conversation. When I first made reservations with this man, he was not terribly patient with me. I wanted information about the unit, the size and what not, I was excited to bring my dog so I over-looked how I was not getting a warm and fuzzy feeling about this... More

We've stayed at The Colony twice -- in 2007 and 2013 - for a total of 10 nights, and have thoroughly enjoyed it! Wonderful location on the water, scenic view, fantastic location right up the street from Bar Harbor and Acadia National Park, friendly staff, beautiful grounds. We'll be back there for sure next time! Great place for a family... More

Room wasn't clean when we arrived, band aids on the floor, hair in the shower, uncomfortable bed, blood on the sheets, pink cable tv, poor customer service...need I go on? The price is mediocre for the location...

We stayed in the motel part. I'll start with the good - nice size room (although dated), great location, great view, and as close to Acadia National Park as you can get. However, now the rest of the story - 1. even though I clearly stated how many people would be in the room when I made the reservation, they... More

We stayed in a duplex cottage for six nights. We could hear the neighbors talking through the wall, but they went to sleep around the same time as us, so it wasn't a problem. The cottages are old, but comfortable and the maid did a great job every day. Our mattresses were just right, so we slept well. It was... More
