Trying to find accommodations in the Bar Harbor can be overwhelming; so many choices throughout the area but I was more than satisfied with Emery's. It's not fancy or spacious but I felt like we went back to a simpler time. The cottage was amazingly clean, the bed quite comfortable, and the view amazing. The value for the price is... More

Where do I begin? If you are going to be in the Bar Harbor area for a few days, stay here. Just do it. Owners Wally and Carol Gray can't do enough for their guests. For a property right on the water the rates are extremely reasonable and the property is peaceful and quiet. The big lawn slopes gently down... More

We consider ourselves so fortunate that we were able to get reservations at Emery's! From a very friendly check-in to wonderful views and an unbelievable clean cottage, we had a great stay! The cleaning staff is like no other, they go above and beyond. We have never stayed anywhere that is as clean as this! No, everything is not new... More

The cottage was perfect for myself and my fiancee. We stayed in a cottage with a kitchenette which worked out well because we were able to make ourselves breakfast and dinner many days. The owners were very helpful in getting us oriented when we first got there and the staff did a great job keeping the place clean. The area... More

This was a great place to stay - close to Acadia and downtown area without being in the thick of tourists. The water view was wonderful and having the kitchenette was a huge perk for nights we weren't in the mood to go out to eat dinner. Very friendly staff and simple, clean cottages. Truly made our visit relaxing

My husband and I are on our honeymoon, and we planned on camping near Acadia. Last night's thunderstorm changed our plans, and Wally (the owner of Emery's) was so kind and accommodating when we called @ 830 PM to book a cottage. He took my info & then said he wd leave a key in cottage 8 for us. This... More

We spent five nights in Maine, three of them at Emery's. We wish we would have stayed all five here though...as we were sad to leave our cottage half way through our trip! We stayed in a cottage without a kitchen, but it wasn't a problem since there is a community kitchen that was open to everyone. Actually, I'd almost... More

There are so many wonderful things about this place. The owners are wonderful, very friendly, helpful and just plain nice folks. Wally showed us their photo album with pictures of the cottages thru the seasons. He and Carol were both helpful but unobtrusive. They were there if we needed them but gave us our space. The cottage we had, 5A... More

Not fancy or new, but has just what we needed. Clean, quiet,nice views, close to town and park. We rented a double cabin, and it worked out great. Gave us privacy yet close to each other. price is good for the area.

My husband and I stayed at Emery's Cottages in October of 2013. The owners were very friendly and helpful, giving us local information as well as hiking maps to borrow while we were there. We rented a cottage with a kitchenette, which served our needs well. Although small, the unit was perfect for the two of us and was very... More
