The buildings look like they were built in the 40's or 50's. But the inside of the room ( we stayed in number 22), was thoroughly up-to-date, comfortable couch, easy chair, fridge and stove...lots of room to spread out and a terrific view of a tiny bay. Loved it. Book well in advance

We stayed in Cottage 7 last week, and it was great! Beautiful view from the cottage, the place was exactly as advertised, and the folks that own it are very help[full and polite. Will stay here again.

Somehow, the pictures that you see on the website can't do this place justice. It has really nice views of the cove from everywhere. We stayed in the motel, which seems brand new and is right on the water-- and the views couldn't be better. We then stayed in a cabin -- again, great view and great space. This is... More

For our first trip to Bar Harbor, we chose to stay at Edgewater, primarily due to the price. We discovered a whole host of other reasons to stay here, not the least of which was the location and condition of the property. We arrived late afternoon, and Dave checked us in, taking time to review a map of the island... More

Our first trip to Bar Harbor began as a "once & done." Twelve years later, we are annual visitors to David and Jayne's place, and it's like a second home. Clean, welcoming and private. We are close enough to the excitement of Bar Harbor and numerous hiking venues throughout the island. We are quiet enough to enjoy tide pooling by... More

Our first stay at the Edgewater was 15 years ago and we’ve been back once, and occasionally twice, each year since then. The Bowdens are the perfect hosts and have always made us feel welcome, as if we were family. The location is convenient, private and quiet. It is a short drive to anywhere on the island and we’ve learned... More

My husband and I recently traveled to Mount Desert Island for vacation. Upon checking in, Jayne took the time to go over directions to Bar Harbor and Acadia National Park. She had great recommendations for trails and restaurants. We stayed in Room 28 in the Motel. It was very clean and spacious. The view was breathtaking. Our room was literally... More

I love this place! The motel and cottages are located on a large property overlooking Salisbury Cove. The grounds are very well maintained and have flowers and flowering bushes planted around. The motel rooms and cottages have had makeovers since we were here quite a few years ago. They look really, really good. We stayed in a motel room this... More

My daughter and I stayed for four nights and everything was perfect! We stayed in the motel room with the fireplace and balcony. It was so comfortable and very relaxing. The room was spotless and has been updated and you are right on the beach. David and Jayne made us feel at home from the minute we arrived. Bar Harbor... More

My husband and I stayed here for the first time and it won't be the last. Our room was spacious and comfortable. We loved the little touches like three pillows on each bed and the two comfy chairs for sitting and reading (or just looking out the window at the view of the cove). Everything was neat and clean and... More
