Very happy with our stay :) great location, comfortable rooms! We had our puppy with us and she was very happy too! Adequate area for her to do her business. Only thing I wish it had would be a fire pit! All rooms would be nice, slight noise from the st, but with the ac on It was fine. We... More

This was our first visit to Bar Harbor and really did not know what to expect but instantly fell in love with Tide Watch, the Chartroom and Bar Harbor. The cabins are right on a Cove and are named accurately because you can watch the tide come in and go out right from your porch! The cabin was very clean... More

You can tell the owners take pride in these cabins. Our cabin was cozy, comfortable & spotless! The bedding, towels & shower curtain were high quality and fresh & clean. The grounds were nicely kept and the view is fantastic. The owners were very friendly and accomodating. We ordered take out from their restaurant next door since we had our... More

My husband & I stayed at Tide Watch the last weekend before the off season really kicks in to visit Acadia and Bar Harbor. We like staying in cabins like this and Tide Watch was great! The cabins are small, only the one room and small bathroom, but very clean, great price and amazing location. About a mile from the... More

This was a tough rating for me because I felt there were a number of pros and cons about the place. View, service, well maintained were the pros. The cons were a very small room, limited privacy, and being located right on Route 3. We stayed 5 days at the Tide Watch cabins and overall we enjoyed our time there.... More

Started looking February 2014 for places to stay and came upon these cabins and they are wonderful. We stayed from Sunday to Sunday and enjoyed every minute in bar harbor and Acadia national park and the views are amazing and the cabins were clean and very comfortable with a spectacular view of hulls cove. We are already planning a return... More

My husband and I have stayed here many times and it never disappoints. The location is perfect, down the block from Acadia National Park and close to town. Rooms are always clean and grounds as well as cabins are always well maintained. I can't say enough how warm, friendly, and accommodating the owners (Terri and Jeff) are. They also have... More

These cabins are located very close to Acadia's Hull's Cove entrance/visitor center, right on Hull's Cove and close to downtown Bar Harbor. We stayed in Cabin 5, close to the water, with great views from the terrace and the cabin. The sunrise with ducks is not to be missed! The terrace has a table and barbecue, and you can relax...

Our family stayed in the upper apartment right after Labor Day 2013. The apartment was nicely decorated with everything we needed to include full kitchen with refrigerator, oven/stove, microwave, dishwasher, utensils, bowls/plates/silverware, lobster pot and plates. Terri and Jeff (owners) were warm and super friendly....a very welcoming couple. We have two medium dogs that we always travel with and they... More

For the price, location, and quality, I would normally give Tide Watch Cabins 4 stars. However, one of the important reasons we chose Tide Watch is that they advertised "Kitchenettes", giving me the impression that we would be able to save some money by cooking our own food here. Apparently by kitchenettes, they mean a toaster, coffeemaker, microwave, and uber-small... More
