I stayed in the single budget room on the 2nd floor above the office. Personally, I think it is too small for two people to be comfortable. But the rate was affordable and it's just 20 minutes away from Bar Harbor and Acadia National Park. Recommended for those who are just looking for a place to sleep.

Recently took a quick vacation to the Bar Harbor area and after reading reviews on Tripadvisor, booked our stay with Isleview Motel and Cottages. We stayed in cottage number 4 and enjoyed our stay. Only complaint of our stay was the spottiness of internet availability while in the room. If we were outside, sitting on the bench or on the... More

We are glad you found our accommodations clean and comfortable. I do apologize for the down time with the Wi-fi. We have two access points, for the Office and one for the cottages/motel. Our antenna for the cottages and motel took a lightening hit and stopped working but no one informed us of it for several days. The office WiFi... More

We appreciated the efforts of how clean the cottage was. Hopefully it wont be raining when we come back, We will then be able to enjoy the cottage surroundings. We did get around Bar Harbor and the mountain. See you in a year.

We stayed in a small cottage for a few nights. Some of them have kitchens but we chose the smallest size. The cottage was small but cozy and very affordable. We didn't plan on spending time in the room except for sleeping anyway, since we were there to visit Bar Harbor and Acadia. The cottages are about a 15-20 minute... More

If you are looking to save some money, and need a place to stay for a few days, this fits the bill. Great location, except for highway traffic. A bit noisy. Kids never noticed. Nice, well equipped kitchen in cabin 1. Safe area. IGA down the street has great groceries, lobsters too! Cabin 1 is the way to go, with... More

We stayed in a very small cottage with a queen bed. It was so small the bed was against one wall and made sleeping claustrobic. We kept bumping into each other and there was limited room for our bags. There was only one chair that did not face the TV so one of us had or sit on the bed... More

Thank you for your review. I am not sure how you booked your stay, our website has pictures of each room type for booking along with a virtual tour of each room type. That way the customer knows the room setup in advance. All of our TV's are on swivel mounts so you can move them and the chairs obviously... More

We stayed here for two nights in cottage number 4 last weekend. It was a short drive to Acadia. The room was very clean and comfortable. The only problem I had with the cottage was the bathroom was very small. No room in the shower to shave your legs. Also, if you are a light sleeper there is a lot... More

I had to cancel 7 days prior to going there as a work project meant I needed to cancel a family vacation. I was upfront with the motel owners as to why I had to cancel, and they were kind enough to cancel the booking with their one-week policy. However, they also were angry with me, complaining that they were... More

We are a small facility of 13 rooms. This guest had reserved this room for 3 months and wanted to cancel after the refundable window had closed. I stated to him that we were having a GOOD tourist season this year and I doubted I would have any trouble re-booking his room so I would not charge him for it.... More

Great value and location. Stayed in cabin for one night. Very helpful staff and tidy accomodation. Only slight negative was rock covered driveway. This was somewhat of a hassle with a touring motorcyle.
