Our first visit to Maine and stayed a week in cabin 10. Nice and quiet with a beautiful view of the water. After a busy day enjoying the sights this is a perfect place to unwind. When we checked in Dave have us aap if the area and made some wonderful suggestions of sights to see. Can't wait to go... More

The Sea View Suite was perfect for the three of us. The setting is perfect, the views stunning. It appeared to have new carpeting, living room furnishings and curtains. Nice large flat screen TV in the living room made hubby happy (who besides him want to watch TV with these views?) The kitchen is large and stocked with dishes, nice... More

As I write this review, I am sitting on the desk outside of my room watching a lobster man check his traps. The breeze is blowing...The slight hint of salt water tickles my nose. The tide has gone out so a few local birds are looking for their breakfast. Not one sound of traffic, hustle and bustle of downtown Bar... More

We spent three nights at Edgewater in late May and had a wonderful time. Dave was most helpful with local area information, and the entire family and staff were very nice. We had Cottage 11 which had a nice set up with everything we needed. The heat lamp in the spacious bathroom was a big plus as it was still... More

We loved our stay in one of Edgewater's charming cottages. The cottage was clean and cozy, clearly well cared for. The bed was delightfully comfortable and I loved the shower quality! We cooked in the little kitchinette each evening and found the cabinets stocked with everything we could need to help in preparing a special meal for two. The chairs... More

Came across this location my searching the internet several months before our trip. All I can say is the internet does not do it justice. I was like a little kid when we arrived and check in. Our room is absolutely wonderful, view is fantastic, the room is large and is the cleanest I have ever come across. Who never... More

We found this wonderful place on the internet and have been coming back EVERY year since. We have stayed in the seaview, hayloft and numerous cabins. All come complete with all the amenities of home. The location is beautiful and close to everything for adults and kids alike and the prices for the area can't be beat. David and Jayne... More

We stayed two nights here; this is a beautiful location on a small bay with very nicely-kept grounds. The cottages were all booked so we got motel rooms. These rooms are spacious and have been very recently renovated and are in beautiful condition; new carpet etc. There's a small back deck with chairs to enjoy the view. The A/C unit... More

Haven't even left yet, but so pleased that I want to write my review! We came for the cabins, but needed two beds in our room. So the owner recommended their little motel on the same property. What a surprise! The room (#21) has been completely redone. New carpet, new paint, bed coverings . . . two sink "get ready"... More
