Our cottage had a great view over a little bay. The owners are very friendly and helpful. Our cottage was in excellent shape and nicely decorated with a personal touch. We had coffee and delicious, home-made blueberry muffins in the morning.

We stayed in cabin seven for five nights in September. The cabin was just the right size for two people and had everything we needed to cook our breakfast and dinner each day. Sitting on the deck watching and listening to the tide go in an out was one of the highlights of our stay. The other highlight was sitting... More

This was our first visit to the Edgewater Motel and Cottages and we will return. Our room was on the end of the motel with a beautiful balcony overlooking the shore of Salisbury Cove just below Bar Harbor. The room had been recently remodeled and was clean. The balcony had chairs and a table. We really enjoyed watching the tide... More

We had 1 night in a cottage because the motel was full, but we enjoyed having a kitchen/table and had cooked lobsters delivered! The cottage was quite small, but fine for two people. Then we stayed 1 night in the motel. The room must have been updated fairly recently and was huge! The location, right on the water of Salisbury... More

When we were planning our summer vacation in July (we've always been late starters), my husband said "Let's go back to Edgewater. I love that place." I couldn't agree more so now the problem with finding a room. We had stay here for many years, so many in fact that they used to save the first two weeks in August... More

We stayed in one of the motel rooms Edgewater last week for 5 nights last week and can only say good things about it. The room was very roomy with a sitting area and 3 recliners. The balcony, also with comfortable chairs, was right on the water. We saw eagles, loons, kingfishers, grebes, a seal, etc. It was so peaceful... More

We stayed in cottage 3 August 17-24th. We couldn't have been happier with our stay. We were looking for a rustic cabin on the water with peace and quiet, but accessible to all activities. This wound up being the perfect place!!! This is not a 4 star all the perks you can get place. This place however is the absolute... More

We stayed three nights in Room 28, which was a very large upper level room in the motel section, There is a small sofa and comfortable arm chair. The king bed and pillows were great. The room appeared to be recently remodeled. The entrance door had a heavy screen door with a sturdy lock, so with the sliding window open... More

This was a quiet perfect place to stay to explore Bar Harbor. We stayed in one of the cottages close to the water. The little kitchen was well stocked and nice. The only drawback was there was no place to put our luggage except the floor. Getting to old to do all that bending over. The linens and couch needed... More

Our cottage included a small kitchen equipped with pots, pans, coffee maker, etc. and full size refrigerator. There is a nice deck with table and chairs where you... More
