Stayed for one night on July 4th weekend on an otherwise sold out weekend , the king bed was comfy, room spotless, free wifi, bbq available, nice veranda, pool, lovely owners. Would definitely stay here again, maybe in a cottage next time. Only thing I would recommend is room darkening curtains, sun lights up the room at 5 am.

The cheerful yellow and gorgeous flowers caught my eye the first time we were in the area so we decided to stay this time. What a wonderful locally-owned motel! The rooms are spacious and very clean. The bed was very comfy and the sheets smelled so fresh. There are several cottages, each with its own unique design. The pool is... More

Needed a place to stay as it was late, I was tired of driving, and the weather was horrible. This maybe the first place you come to when entering the Island (Mont Desert) on your way to Bar Harbor. Maybe 15-20 minutes from the town of Bar Harbor. Very clean room. Very friendly owner, had a few good chats with... More

We spent three nights here and found it perfectly located to take advantage of all the islands attractions. The rooms were exceptionally clean, the management was friendly, helpful and professional. You can get ice if you ask for it but I never saw a machine. There are no drink machines either, so you have to bring your own stock. A... More

There are not enough good things to say about our stay at Sunnyside Cottages. The proprietors were friendly, helpful and accommodating. Our cabin, number 9, was well appointed, spotless and comfortable. The bed linens were crisp and clean. The bathroom was meticulous and offered shampoo, soap, hairdryer and fresh linens. The kitchenette was stocked with a two burner stainless steel... More

Stayed here 3 nights in a motel room late Sept. Missed having a coffee maker and microwave especially as cool as it was. There is coffee available in the office when it opens at 7:00 am....BTW the coffee was excellent! Our room had knotty pine paneling and a TINY standup shower. That shower was so small I kept hitting my... More

We stayed in cottage number 4 - one bedroom with king bed. The place was easy to find, about 10 miles to downtown. The cottage was clean and bed was comfortable. Nice to have small screened in porch and small kitchen so we didn't have to eat out every meal. Our cottage was very close to the main office but... More

My daughters and I have been coming here for the last eight years. Mostly for a short stay while on our way to a final destination. We have always been extremely happy with all aspects! Extremely clean, well kept and the owners Helena and Richard are always ready to help. The thing I think I like the best is that... More

We recently spent 3 nights (one 1-bedroom cottage and one motel room). The units were spotless and Richard and Helena were a delight....they take great pride in their property and are very visible and helpful. The only negative I can think of is the washer and dryer were very dated and the dryer took forever to dry our clothes. Highly... More

Recently stayed at the Sunnyside cottages. Cottage 6 was very clean and comfortable. The innkeepers were very friendly and made recommendations for Lobster Pounds , grocery stores ,and restaurants. Providing us with a map and details. The establishment is motorcycle friendly and had laundry facilities. I liked the location as it was convenient to Acadia National Park but out of... More
