We stayed in cottage #11 10/11-10/13 while attending a wedding up the road. Staff were efficient and friendly. The cottage was clean, simple and exactly what we needed. It was lovely to have no tv for 2 days! We came as a couple but are thinking of returning with our 3 yr old in June to catch a glimpse of... More

Disappointed at size and amenities of cottage that assigned. Room did not have tv and when asked owner at check-in about tv, she said would cost $50 more for cottage with tv but could transfer to motel without charge. So unhappy about cottage that left the area with our luggage in car and called desk about changing to another cottage..... More

Thank you so much for a wonderful stay and just minutes from Camden. My husband and I were thankful for the very helpful owner who directed us to the right restaurant for dinner. We loved the doggie bag on arrival. Our two dogs loved the grounds and fenced in area. We would stay here again. Thank you so much! Steph... More

We were traveling down the coast of Maine and spotted the Bay Leaf cottages and bistro. We decided it looked like a nice place to stay the night. It was a great location. We went into Camden to shop and have dinner and were still close enough to get a good rate without paying Camden lodging prices. The room was... More

The cottages are clean and have almost anything you would need for your stay. They are nicely decorated also. Just a short 5 minute drive to downtown shopping and restaurants in Camden. The manager/owner was VERY unfriendly, and for that I make the rating average. The staff and their attitudes can make or break an experience and this one broke... More

I believe your experience was not common for guests on our property and I apologize if we did not "click" when you arrived but it's unfair to say that others on our property did not have a good experience. I believe had you made the reservations and set up the group, I may have had information needed to assist your... More

This location is perfect; away from the busier tourist areas in and around Bar Harbor, etc. But close enough to Acadia Park (if that is your desire). Great restaurants surround the location and the breakfast provided in the Bistro are amazing. In fact all the amenities provided were first class! We fully occupied cabin #4 so that is the reason...

Adorable cottages - motel is comfortable, basic and to the point. No frills needed because there is so much so see and do in MidCoast Maine! Included continental breakfast is fresh and full of many choices. If you're looking for an affordable, no-frills, dog-friendly motel/cottage with a nice quick continental breakfast, then this is the place for you!

We stayed in motel room #19 over Labor Day weekend. The resort is very cute and decorated nicely! We arrived after 7pm, but a late check-in was no problem just by calling ahead. The rooms and bathroom are small but doable. We had 4 adults in one room, which was a little bit of a squeeze but we were only... More

We were lucky enough to get a room at this wonderfully clean location with no reservations. It's no wonder they were one of the only fully booked locations in the area. CLEAN, dog friendly and with wonderful amenities. When we decided to stay a second night Jane found us another room and though the move from one room to another... More
