Clean, comfortable room back by the woods. You can smell the pine trees if you leave the windows open at night. Friendly and welcoming staff. Great location, can easily grab the bus to go all over MDI. Awesome little egg sandwiches in the office to grab before your trip to Acadia. Highly recommended.

Both my wife and I loved the “throwback” look of the Highbrook Motel! For her, it was reminiscent of staying with a favorite aunt and for myself it brought fond memories of staying with my grandparents. Besides the nostalgia, the Highbrook Motel was very clean. The staff was both friendly & helpful. The Highbrook was located in a good location,... More

such a beautiful motel with that 60s "motor lodge" feel. Park right outside your door and its like you're home. The staff is very friendly and accommodating. Clean rooms with great water pressure in the showers. VERY good bacon egg sandwich hot breakfast along with bagels and coffee.

Close to downtown, Acadia Part entrance and centrally located for traveling around Mount Desert Island in general. The staff at this motel could not be more generous with their assistance and terrific breakfast they provide in the mornings. Would love to... More

Pull up to the front of this place and you begin to question the intelligence of your reservation. Don't. While this is not the Ritz Carlton, the combination of nice sized rooms (except the microscopic bathrooms), good, friendly, and caring management, excellent free breakfasts, and location near Acadia NP and downtown make this a valuable value-centric choice. If you are... More

Large, clean room with very comfortable kingsize bed. Only 1 mi. to Acadia NP. Easy drive (bus in season) to downtown Bar Harbour. Good, convenient grab & go breakfast. Older property, but good value & would stay again.

We were pleasantly surprised by our room. It was quaint, and very clean. The staff was so friendly and helpful. And the grab and go breakfast was great, since we were leaving early for another day of exploration. We would definitely visit again.

Older unit style motel with units facing the highway and up behind the main building. Refurbished mixing some tacky old with some generic new. Beds were O.K. Great grab and go continental breakfast you pick up in the office and take back to your room. Just a few minutes drive into Bar Harbor, town of no parking. Friendly staff and... More

Adam created a very good first impression at check-in, with a warm welcome and helpful information about restaurants and activities in the area. Our room in the second building was spacious, immaculate, and very comfortable. The owners appear to have given great thought to providing everything a traveler needs. It was especially convenient to have two sinks when getting ready... More
