Located 2 blocks from free buses. Laura, the manager, is very nice and very helpful. The cabins were very comfortable for a couple pus one adult. We had to switch cabins 3 x in 4 days because everything was booked and the staff moved our luggage and everything in our fridge each time beautifully. We would go back.

We stayed in two cottages, 1 and 9, and both were clean and comfortable. They were cozy for 5, but we enjoyed them. Both had small screened porches that were a pleasure to sit on while reading or eating. Laura, the manager, is very kind and helpful. She gave us very specific tips for our excursion to Acadia NP that... More

I can certainly recommend this place (I stayed in cottage 7). It is showing its age here and there (old furniture, worn shower curtain), but it is kept in shape with a lot of love from the owners. The staff is very helpful and friendly. Location is good, around the corner from Acadia National Park as well as Bar Harbor.

Our family of 5 stayed in a 2 bedroom cottage and it was perfect. The cottage was clean and the property was well maintained. The staff was extremely friendly. The whole process from making a reservation online, to check in, to check out was very organized and well communicated. The cottages are a short drive to Acadia's visitor center where... More

We have stayed here three times now and will keep coming back. The location is great. It's away from the crowds of downtown bar harbor, but minutes away from the park entrance. The cottages are basic. You get a bed, a TV, a kitchenette and a bathroom. If you're coming to Maine to hang out in the room you're missing... More

My husband and I stayed in one of the studios--small but perfect for what we needed. We spent every morning on our little screened in porch for breakfast. They provided grills and Laura, the manager, mentioned to us to check the barn for charcoal before we bought any which was wonderful. We mentioned at check in that we were there... More

Very cute cottage for our group of six adults. We were comfortable and even cooked pizza in the small toaster oven . The barn is well equipped with extra towels and really anything you could need (except hair dryer).

The cottages and grounds are well maintained and so quaint. Just what you would expect from Maine. The cottages are on the smaller side but I noticed smaller ones along the road at places that I know were more expensive. The location is very good for Bar Harbor and Acadia. The staff was very responsive and helpful even when we... More

Our cottage was very tiny and the bathroom even smaller. Everything was very clean and neat. Our surprise was that there was wifi and it was very good.

Cottage was clean and cozy. The cottage "sleeps" five, but there is not really room in the cottage for five people: the dining table only sits three, there are only four chairs on the porch, and there is seating in the living room for only two. We had made reservations for five, but they did not leave bedding in the... More
