I stayed here in October to celebrate my 26 year anniversary the place was not what I was expecting at all. There wasn't a microwave (I was told the unit couldn't handle the wattage of a microwave lol) to heat meals or coffee only a stove so we had to do everything old fashioned style the only table is in...

This was our first visit to Bar Harbour. The cabin was very comfortable and had everything we needed. We were on a budget, so chose Hinkley's with that mind, and were very happy with the simple cabin. There were others on the property that had been updated, but we chose one that hadn't been. So we weren't expecting anything fancy.... More

The property is very close to a Bar Harbor and is very quiet and quaint. The grounds are natural with pine needles all over and not groomed by any means and the tar seal needs some work BUT for under $60 per night you can't beat the quaint very clean rooms with comfortable beds and beautiful natural setting so close...

We were SO pleased with our stay at Hinckley's! The cabins are beautiful - the pictures don't do them justice. We had every amenity we needed and more. The cabins are a really quick 10 minute drive from Bar Harbor or an entrance to Acadia National Park, but are quiet and private. The staff was very accommodating, and left our... More

My 8th year at Hinckley's, and it is like "going back home" for me, despite it being "friends I choose as family," on a little different coastline than where I grew up. One can choose an elegant, remodeled cottage that looks like something out of "House Beautiful" magazine, or one can choose a quaint little cabin a bit in retro--I... More

We stayed in cabin 8A on a romantic weekend away. Very clean and tidy on the inside. Limited amenities but had the basics covered: plates, cutlery, towels, soap. Great if you want to get away from it all while still sleeping in a warm bed. The manager was nice enough to leave the place open for us when we got... More

We have been to Hinckleys many times and it is one of the places that we look forward to coming to. Just a short drive down the road is Acadia National Park - enough said!!!! You have to keep in mind that they have many renovated cabins and those that are from the 50's. We like the old ones but... More

Dirty floor, dirty windowsills, dirty on top of the coffee maker. Hair and soap scum in the tub. It was a cabin and we were not expecting the Hilton, but it seemed little effort was put into cleaning prior to our arrival. We left a note for the housekeeper and there was improvement after the next cleaning. Other reviewers seem... More

We had such an amazing time in Cabin 21! It was so neatly decorated! We were there celebrating our anniversary, and it was perfect, and romantic with the electric fireplace. I want to decorate my guest bedroom just like this cottage! The owner was so nice upon check in and check out. It's located just minutes from downtowns and Acadia.... More

Very reasonably priced, clean, with responsive staff (we had an issue with a running toilet, it was fixed on our first day) With a heated clean pool, which we all enjoyed. Small but comfortable kitchen, with a minimum of kitchenware - so if you do decide to cook in your cottage, I suggest bringing a good knife and a cutting... More
