It was a perfect location. We had a double cabin. Bathrooms were on the small side but very clean. The owners were friendly, helpful and very accommodating. The lobster dinner was amazing! We would definitely return.

Thank you for doing a review for us. The lobster operation is a part of Rose Eden that is also important to us. Great to hear that you had a positive experience with both the cottages and the lobster dinner. Please come back to see us the next time you visit Bar Harbor. More

My sister and I ( and her black lab, Riley) stayed here in September while we were exploring Acadia. It is clean and comfortable. We were so impressed with how well these cottages are taken care of. There is also a grill out back with a fire pit that we used every night after some long hikes. We will be... More

My dog and I just had a week-long life changing experience at Acadia, and a large part of this was due to staying at this incredible place! Excellent customer service, incredibly accomodating, super kind staff, and the rooms were AWESOME, clean, and homey. Thank you so much for an incredible stay! We will be back for sure, and will be...

I had always wanted to stay in a little white cabin in the woods, and Rose Eden gave me the opportunity! We had cottage #12, the Tides, and it was fabulous. Compact two bedrooms with full bath and kitchen as well as a comfy living room. We were at the end of the line of cottages, and the farthest away... More

Thanks for a great review. It is gratifying to hear that we met and/or exceeded your expectations. In addition to our lobster meals there is also a winery and a farm café right next door so you don’t have to drive to get something to eat and drink. Please come back and visit us again. More

We stayed in the Sea Shore #5 for 4 nights. It is small but has everything you need. We have 2 small dogs so being pet friendly was important. WIFI was strong and fast and the tiny TV had abundant channels. The grounds and cabin are well kept. Behind the hotel is the best lobster shack on the island. Right... More

Thank you for writing such a great review. You commented on two things that we consider extremely important, cleanliness and a “homey” atmosphere. It is nice to see our efforts recognized. We will continue to work hard to maintain and improve our little cottages and hope we see you again. More

Cabin #11 was cozy and the amenities were perfect! Nice playground for the kiddos, fire pits, grills and right beside an excellent lobster / seafood place!! Loved the location, across the highway from Hadley Point and in the middle between Ellsworth and BH. We had an excellent stay and the owners were very friendly, accommodating and present!!

We stayed for three nights over Memorial Day and had a great time. Rose Eden is right off the highway and only a short drive to Bar Harbor and Acadia. The cottage was very clean and setup with everything we needed for our stay. The location in the edge of the woods is relaxing.

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
