Quaint B & B with a great library to grab a book and sit in the parlor or sit on the front porch and see the bay. Close to Bass Harbor lighthouse and a short drive to the national park, nicking trails, dining, whale sightseeing tours and more! Stay here and drive to Bar Harbor for a perfect vacation. Hosts...

Don and Marge were great hosts and have a lovely home for visitors. We stayed at the Oak room as it had an attached bath during the 4th of July weekend. Room rates at this B&B were very reasonable when compared to other similar propoerties during the long weekend. Don (aka- chef uniques) took special care of my husband's vegetarian... More

Location Location Location! would be my first big plus for Lodge-ings. It is tucked away from the the crowds that flock to Acadia but very close to several park entrances 10 mins drive to echo lake, 20 mins Cadillac Mountain, 5-10 mins to lovely Southwest harbor restaurants, and Bar Harbor in 25 mins. A lot has been written about Don's... More

Don and Marge Lodge operate a modest but quiet, restful, cozy, clean and neat B&B on the Seawall Road in Southwest Harbor on Mt. Desert Island. My recent four day stay with the Lodges could not have been more satisfying and enjoyable. On top of everything else, Don makes a terrific breakfast and he goes out of his way to... More

My mom and I came to visit Acadia for the first time over July 4th weekend and after calling every B&B we lucked out with Don. Wonderful host, amazing cooked to order breakfasts with incredible variety of choices (more than any B&B I stayed in before). Don was so nice that he even mailed me back my phone charger when...

My wife and I recently had the pleasure of spending 4 nights at the Lodge-ings with Don and Marge. It was a wonderful experience. Their home is comfortably compact. While the guest bedrooms are arranged in a cluster upstairs, there was no intrusive noise. The house is conveniently situated on Sea Wall Road. If you haven't visited Southewest Harbor before,...

The Lodge-ings is a small B&B lovingly run by Don and Marge Lodge. It offers nice views of the water, convenient access to Southwest Harbor (near but not in-town) which is a far preferable place to stay on MDI than the more honky-tonk Bar Harbor, wonderfully knowledgeable and friendly hosts, terrific breakfast options and very nicely appointed rooms. We have... More
