In late May 2014 my family and I decided to head to Maine to experience Acadia National Park. In order to get a true flavor for some peace and quiet I decided to rent a cottage on the water. I found Windward Cottages after searching the web and it turned out to be a true gem. The owners Ollie and... More

I have never stayed at a cottage before, but I'm glad I tried this place. It was awesome. This isn't in the middle of town, but it is only 15 minutes away. The kitchen was stocked with everything you needed to cook. Everything was clean, no funky smells. We only stayed a couple of nights, but I wish we could... More

I searched online and found this rental after much deliberation. It was totally perfect for our family of 4. We had a king bed and our boys had their own twins in our 2 bedroom cottage. It was immaculately clean and spacious with everything we needed, other than the little mosquitoes that were everywhere in Maine. Canoeing in the mornings... More

We spent a week at the windward cottages, while visiting Acadia National Park and Bar Harbor, and loved this little gem. The cottage had everything we could need, was located on a beautiful bay (where we went clamming and searching for mussels at low tide and ventured into the bay on the complimentary kayaks during high tide), and was just...

My family (2 parents, 3 boys under 10) spent a week here in June 2012 and couldn't have been happier. What you'll find at Windward Cottages: clean, simple cabins with gorgeous views of the salt marshes, fireflies, stars, a waiting canoe, peace and quiet and enough money left in your pocket to afford to eat all that lobster. What you... More

We've stayed in a lot of cabins over the years and this was probably the best. It was spotlessly clean and and had pretty much all the comforts of home. The cabin was stocked with the kinds of things I have in my own home - not your typical "rental" appliances and housewares. As for the location, I initially tried... More

Windward Cottages are a delightful place to stay. Our cottage had a picture window overlooking a bay where seals swam every morning. Everything was provided, the appliances were new or like-new, nice flat screen TV and DVD player, with free videos and DVDs available at the office. It was quiet and beautiful. Very clean. We were 20 minutes from Bar... More

Actually we rented two cabins for a week. Was just perfect for us. Five mile drive to Bar Harbor. Not much further to Acadia. Chairs, canoes , kayaks provided. Very comfortable place to stay. There were six in our party.
