When we arrived at Bar Harbor Cottages and Suites, it turned out there was a mistake with our reservation (completely my mistake), but the manager called the owner and came up with a solution my family and I were completely happy with- they were extremely accommodating, and we very much appreciated that. We loved the location and proximity to Acadia... More

This is was the perfect little cozy cottage for our 3 day stay. We were interested in hiking and eating and Kathy and Laura had great recommendations for us. Laura was really helpful in helping us decide which hikes to do. It's really close to the entrance of Acadia and only minutes from downtown Bar Harbor so the location was... More

My family of 3 stayed here mid-June and had a very nice stay. Yes, the cottages are small, but that's what you should expect on this type of property. Having said that, the cabin was nicely decorated, and had everything you'd need to make breakfast and a quick meal here or there. We were very comfortable. We enjoyed our breakfasts... More

My girlfriends and I stayed here for a celebration vacation and we loved it! The cottage itself is a little small and can be claustrophobic, but we did fit a ton of bodies into a small space. The staff are so warm and welcoming...and the cottage is so close to Acadia and the main part of Bar Harbor, so very... More

I loved these cabins. They were snug but roomy enough. They had comfy furniture. There are grills and picnic tables, which we were able to use since we were there in July. There is a paddle boat that you can take and ride around the small lake, which you sadly cannot swim in. There is a fun little playground for... More

Following all the positive reviews we were left disappointed with our accommodation.. We could not fault check-in. Laura was very friendly and extremely knowledgeable about the area, but is was our cabin that was a bit of a let down.

Since we couldn't get a cottage at the place we normally stay in Bar Harbor I was scrambling to find a place to crash for our leaf peeping expedition.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Bar Harbor Cottages and Suites in Bar Harbor, Maine have been serving visitors to the Acadia National Park and Mount Desert Island area for generations. Our traditional Maine cottage colony is nestled in a peaceful hamlet on a country road across the lane from a large cove. Our 12 pristine, charmingly renovated white cottages beckon visitors to our park-like setting. The cottages have either a partial water view or garden view and most have screened porches. To best serve your needs, we have various types of cottages which can accommodate 1 - 6 people. Those cottages which accommodate 3 or more persons have separate sleeping quarters for added privacy. We are conveniently located about 1.5 Miles to a public access beach, 4.5 Miles to the downtown business district, 3 miles to Acadia National Park and a 15 - 20 minute drive to the other coastal villages in the area. Open mid-May to late October. ... more   less
