We totally enjoyed our stay. Laura the inn keeper was so nice and accommodating when we requested to stay two additional nights. We stayed in the Victoria cottage which had good size bathroom and a gas/ electric fire place. The nights got chilly so it would warm the cottage up nicely. Very romantic. The grounds were well maintained and very... More

I will start by saying that I REALLY wanted to like this place. I love the idea of staying off the beaten path and roughing it a little (in a fun way). I wanted to be able to grill our dinner and just step out the door to let the kids play outside. When we arrived at the cottages, Laura,... More

We thank Trip Advisor for the opportunity to clarify this review. As this reviewer points out, most of our guests are delighted with their stay. Although we have a very high rate of referral and returning people, we are aware we are not the right fit for everyone at our renovated seasonal traditional Bar Harbor, Maine cottage colony. As stated... More

We spent a week at the #2 cottage. Have to say it was very clean and kept we have rented other "lake cottages" and have not been nearly as nice and comfortable. We came early in the season so we had to use the heaters as it was in the low 40's a few nights. The cottages are rather old... More

From the first moment we arrived here, we knew we were going to love our stay! The people are INCREDIBLY friendly and aren't just in a hurry to check you in so they can continue about their way, instead she (Laura, the manager) took her time, told us about the area, gave us recommendations for trails, food, activities, etc. You're...

As promised, we booked at Bar Harbor Cottages again for Columbus Day weekend. I actually stopped in while we were in town in August and originally booked just for two nights. Later on, we decided that since that would leave us with just one full day to see Acadia, we wanted a third night. I called and asked if the... More

Excellent place to stay when visiting Bar Harbor and Acadia NP. Booked this place based on reviews here at Trip Advisor. Pictures on the web site are good, but may not show how small some of the rooms are. Stayed in Cottage #9 ('Victorian Cottage') for 3 nights. A large person would not have been able to get into the... More

I have been there for one night with my husband and my in-laws. It was a perfect location very quiet. The cottage had the perfect size for 2 couples. We enjoyed a breakfast outside which was nice. I liked the attention as we arrived late in the evening, with all the recomendations we needed for the activities around. I would... More

Stayed in Cottage #8. Only about 10 minutes from Acadia, and far enough away from the hustle and bustle of Bar harbor. Our cottage was clean and the staff made sure we had everything we needed. Saving 4-5 hundred bucks over a similar length stay in a motel was appealing as well. We had our own parking place right next... More

Quaint little place. It is old but well maintained. If you want Hilton luxury, this is not the place for you. It is self service so bring any extras you might want like paper towels and a hair dryer. We stayed in a 2 bedroom cottage with double beds in each room. The bedrooms are very small but we didn't... More
