The owners of this facility were very kind and accommodating. We stayed in The Tides (#12) which was perfect for 4 adults and 2 small children. Loved that it was secluded and close enough to a small children's play area. A bonus was having access to a gas grill for cooking. Would recommend to anyone to stay here . .... More

We have Rose Eden Cottages for the past 15 years with the new owners and also the previous owners. The owners (both old and new) are great. They are very informative of the area. The cottages are wonderful. We especially like Cottages #11 & #12 (the family cottages), but they are all wonderful. The location is wonderful - centrally located... More

Thank you for your review. We are always glad to hear that our cottages are nice enough that people want to make a return visit. As for the tip concerning the location of the cottages, we have provided white noise generators to mask the exterior noises for the cottages at the front and that seems to have made a big... More

We stayed here for 3 nights over the memorial day weekend. The cottage we stayed was clean, comfortable and had all the required amenities. We stayed in cottage 7+8, which accommodates 6 people. There was a mini kitchenette with adequate pots, pan and cutlery. We felt the place was definitely a bargain for our money. There is a laundry facility... More

My experience at Rose Eden could not have been better. The cottage are adorable, and cottage number four (the one we stayed in) was just the right size for two people. We stayed for two night during a long road trip around New England and the Maritime Provinces of Canada, and it was the perfect base from which to explore... More

My wife and I took my parents to see Acadia National Park and the surrounding areas. It was the first time for all of us so we weren't sure where to stay.

We stayed here for 5 nights during our Bar Harbor vacation. I liked the idea of the single cottages and I wanted close access to town and Acadia without all the "noise" of the tourist lodgings. Dave and Yvonne were very easy to book with and sent email confirmations of your stay. The cottages have a mini kitchen, fridge, microwave,... More

We stayed here while we were visiting Bar Harbor and Acadia National Park. The owners were really helpful in giving us tips on how to see the Park and what to do around Bar Harbor (I think the best is just to walk around and eat your way through town). We stayed in the first cottage, and it was well-appointed... More
