We had a great one evening stay at Hinckleys. Cozy well appointed cabin and a very reasonable rate. Do not hesitate to stay here when in the bar harbor area! The staff is very helpful and friendly and are available to answer any questions on the area.

First of all: we only had the yellow house, not one of the cottages. Maybe this was the first mistake. The house was meant for like 8 persons, we only were three. But besides of this the house was really dirty on our arrival, and was not made up even though someone changed the sheets in one of the bedrroms.... More

On our trip to Bar Harbor we had the opportunity to stay at the Hinckley’s Dreamwood Cabins. My boyfriend booked our stay after remembering passing cabins years before when he was a student at The University of Maine in the 60’s and the fact that he shares the same last name, didn’t hurt. I tried to keep an open mind... More

Last week we stayed at Hinckley's Dream Wood Cabins while visiting Acadia National Park. We were welcomed by Mr. Stewart, the owner. He was friendly and helpful. My husband and I stayed in cabin #18. We were delighted by our cozy cabin. It had a full kitchen (sans microwave). The cabins are older, but that's the beauty of them! The... More

My family and I have been to Bar Harbor three times (2007, 2011, and 2015), and each time we go we stay at Hinckley's. Being there feels like going home! The cottages (we've been in 4 different ones) are always cozy and clean. They are in the process of updating and renovating each one, so everything is even better. This... More

I always look forward to stay at Hinckley's. I have 3 chihuahuas that travel with me. If you're looking for something better, then stay at a Holiday Inn express. Cabin 10 is the best pet accommodation I have found. The owners and staff are the best. The saddest day of my vacation is when I have to leave. I can... More

I typically do not submit reviews, however I was so disappointed by the experience I feel obligated to share. My family has stayed at many different types of lodging across the country, budget motels and campgrounds (koa) on cross-country trips, weekend getaways in large cities, and timeshares in New England and Florida. This was one of (if not the) worst... More

Where do I start? We are certainly not fancy people but nearly everything about this place was unacceptable! We stayed for 5 nights in cabin 10. It was run down, the carpet was certifiably filthy and most everything was in a state of disrepair. My husband and I were traveling with 2 of our children (18 and 16 y/o boys)... More

Located on State Highway 3, which is the main road to Bar Harbor, the property contains twenty or more traditional cabins. Each cabin is equipped with a comfortable bed, dresser, a separate kitchen with a propane stove and electric refrigerator and a bathroom with shower facilities - no tub. The kitchen is supplied with a table and chairs and an... More
