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

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

We called at the last minute and was graciously accommodated. We found it very convenient to Bar Harbour and Acadia National Park and the proprietors were friendly very helpful and responsive to our questions and concerns. We were delighted at the cleanliness and how well maintained the place is. We highly recommend it!

We stayed one night in the motel and two in a cottage. We were very impressed with the cleanliness. Being able to stay in the cottage and being able to have the kitchen to cook in worked great for us. The owners were extremely accommodating and friendly. I highly recommend this place. The rates were great and the rooms and... More

Stayed for two nights & enjoyed it. Proprietors are friendly and helpful, Great wake-up coffee available in the lobby. Room was clean and the TV and refrigerator worked fine -- all we needed for a the evening after being out all day. No real amenities. Price seemed OK considering the rates for other hotels/motels closer to Bar Harbor.

We stayed four nights in a two bedroom cottage which was just the right size for our family of five. One bedroom with a queen bed and the other bedroom with two double beds for the children. The cottage was very clean and comfortable with daily housekeeping. The kitchen was a great asset for us as we could prepare breakfast... More

We only stayed at the Sunnyside for one night - in one of the hotel rooms. It was great for the price. I would have liked one of the cottages but booked late and they don't do one night unless it's not otherwise booked. Everything was clean, the people were friendly. I'd recommend it. It turned out to be a... More

I had no idea what I was getting into when I drove the 600 plus miles to stay here. The location was perfect. I was traveling with three young ones and this location allowed us easy access to Acadia and Bar Harbor, but alos left us close enough to ellsworth that we could get to a real grocery store and...

We just returned from 3 nights at Sunnyside and have nothing negative to say! The cottages and grounds are immaculate, simple, but updated! Nice, clean pool that was a huge bonus after the hot weather. When we asked for an extra fan (most rooms have ceiling fans) Helena provided immediately. The beds are excellent, and are made up every day... More
