We had truly a wonderful experience here! We arrived with our keys ready for us and a note that I was able to check in the next day since I was either a little early or late maybe. We stayed in May of 2015. Wonderful weather! We hadn't anticipated how well prepared the cottages were! I had brought all necessary... More

Our stay was wonderful at our cottage. It was a honeymoon for us and it was perfect! Very clean and tidy and had everything we needed. This was a great choice! We would recommend it to anyone looking for a cottage.

We had a very nice stay at Bar Harbor Cottages and would probably stay again in ever in the area. Some positives: **Laura - a wonderful welcome, great suggestions for things to do in the rainy weather. **Cottage - exactly as advertised and pictured on the website. While I was expecting a tiny cottage (we had #8, a studio cottage)... More

The cottages are centrally located to Bar Harbor and Acadia National Park which is very convenient. They are relatively clean, but the furnishings are old and "tattered." The kitchen is well equipped so cooking is possible if one is trying to avoid eating every meal out. Laura, the manager, is lovely and well informed and helpful.

We really enjoyed our stay at Bar Harbor Cottages, because the management was so nice and thoughtful. The Cottage was well equipped, but on top there was a free accessable stock of all possible cuttlery, BBQ equipment, Towels, in case you needed something on top. Management was very friendly. And when we lost our keys and only realized it outside... More

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.
