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

There are cottages and a motel. We stayed in motel. I was a tiny bit disappointed because I thought it looked better in photos. It's not fancy, but has everything you need! With the kitchenette we were able to save money by preparing some of our own meals. The room had a woodstove, sofa, recliner, king bed, kitchenette and bathroom.... More

Chose this business due to a review on Trip Advisor that was right on target. I chose a cottage (#3) which is closest to the water. The view was excellent and the cottage delightfully rustic. I arrived just as a storm was arriving but this only added to the ambience. The location is close enough to Bar Harbor to commute... More

Spent 4 days here after a long review of available lodging in the Bar Harbor area. The pictures of the resort do not do credit for the scenery that is available off your patio. Stayed in hotel unit with fireplace and really enjoyed the quiet location and view everyday. (Even with the NorEaster hitting for 2 of the days). The... More

We stayed in the Seascape Suite Sept.27-Oct.4 and it was perfect! Please, do yourself a favor and look at Edgewater's website. The owners couldn't have been more helpful:from check in to helpful tips of where to buy fresh seafood. Our suite was 100% spotless, huge, comfortable and the kitchen was fully equipped, bedding and towels were all very high quality.... More

We just happened upon the Edgewater driving toward Bar Harbor. We knew Bar Harbor was deadly expensive and all the cottages we'd seen online had been booked up, so when we looked at the two-bedroom cottage 20 feet from the water (at high tide), saw that it was clean and well-appointed, we signed up. The cottages are old, I imagine,... More

My husband and I visited a few days ago for our honeymoon. We loved the beautiful view of the bay, the quiet atmosphere away from the bustle of Bar Harbor, the clean facilities, and the friendly hosts. We really enjoyed our stay and would love to come back some day.
