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

I recently stayed in a cottage with three other people and had a great time. The cottage was meticulously cleaned daily by the wonderful maids, enough to please my OCD tendencies. The kitchen is small but functional. We cooked most of our own meals and it was a little challenging with only two burners and no oven but it was... More

We truly enjoyed the cottage, reminded us of our first little apartment when we were first married. It has a little kitchen and bathroom which are a bit dated (and cozy), but this is exactly what you get with this type of rental. We wish the mosquitoes weren't so bad so that we could have sat outside and enjoyed the... More

We stayed one night, 4th of July, 2014! It was a bit old fashioned, but the bathroom was fully updated and all new. The room was very clean, and while dated, the appliances were well cared for and fully functional. We were there through the last gasps of Hurricane Arthur, and slept like babies. The only suggestion I would make... More

Room was clean and staff was very helpful. All their advise about what to see and best deals was 'right on'. Wish we had time to try out the pool... owners very pleasant and helpful. Made the trip to Bar Harbor worth every minute. Thanks.

We traveled from Florida and spent 3 nights in the 2 bedroom cottage and had a wonderful stay. We arrived after 11 pm and Richard and Helen most graciously left the cottage unlocked with the porch light on and the heat on for us, all without us having left them a credit card. Who else would be that thoughtful? The... More

We booked the two bedroom cottage on a long weekend. When I was talking on the phone with them I spoke it so clear that I would love to book it for "2 nights" and they said "ok" so when we arrived there, the story change. They charged my credit card for "3 nights". I complained about that and they... More

WE stayed 2 nights in the motel. Very comfortable like in a mountain cabin. the room especially the bathroom was immaculate. Nice to have small refrigerator. microwave and moring coffee available in the office. The owner Richard spent quite a bit of time outlining thing to see, do and where to eat. Price very reasonable. As with other reviews highly... More
