My daughter and I planned a week in Maine and our first lodging was 3 nights at Acadia Cottages and we were quite delighted. Our 'cabin' was roomy with a small kitchen,large bathroom and comfortable bed. Even though we were a only a few feet from the main street we felt as if we were miles away. Quiet and beautiful...

We were truly pleased with our honeymoon stay at Acadia Cottages. The suite cabin was spacious and comfortable, and we appreciated the efforts to be eco-conscious (recycling bins, housekeeping services only on request). The TV was small, but adequate. The bed was very comfortable. We were promptly greeted and checked in when we arrived, and offered a library of resources... More

I have stayed here on four separate occasions, always in September. Nice little gem. Acadia cottages is in walking distance to food and services of southwest harbor. Though on Main Street the cottages are back in the trees, and up the road so you do not hear road noise. Free wifi or use of a computer in the common room.... More

Acadia Cottages was the perfect getaway for us on Mount Desert Island. We were able to explore the quiet side of the island while still being able to enjoy the bustle of Bar Harbor. The cottages are perfectly laid out and have everything that you would need. I look forward to future stays with Lisa and Gordon!

We stayed 3 nights in one of the studio cottages and loved our time there. It is so peaceful and in a great location. The cottage is clean, functional and the surroundings add plenty of charm. From southwest harbor, we were a short drive to Bass Habor lighthouse and some easy trails to the ocean. We enjoyed super fresh lobster... More

We spent two nights here before heading to the busier Bar Harbor area. I'm so glad we had the opportunity to explore the quieter south west side of the island too. The cottages are perfect - secluded, clean and contain everything you need. They are within walking distance of breakfast, dinner and a good bike hire shop (you can do... More

Lisa and Gordon are friendly hosts, eager to be helpful. Their cabins are spread out on a wooded property so that each has maximal privacy. They are well planned, down to the smallest detail, and well maintained. Their are additional amenties such as a laundry room and bike shed. The cabin we were in (#7) was comfortably roomy. Gordon's photos,... More

We stayed here for 2 nights in September and really loved the place. We stayed in a deluxe cabin (#15) and were really impressed with how comfortable the cabin was. The bed/bedroom was amazing. The small kitchen was very utilitarian and really helped us to avoid eating out for every meal-wish gets expensive and potentially unhealthy. The living room was... More

We booked 5 days in September (sadly, business shortened the trip to three). It's quiet, comfortable, really clean, and convenient to just about everywhere. We were able to cook comfortably, and there is a nice deck (if it's sunny). We'd come back here. . . and spend much more time. Great location, cosy cottage.

Three nights here gave us an opportunity to explore Mt. Desert Island's seas, shores and sights, from Bass Island to Bar Harbor, with Acadian National Park as a Maine attraction. The cottages are nicely placed and appointed. The only indication we had of others being around was the occasional sound of a car on gravel. There may well be other... More
