Nicest owners ever! I dream of being able to keep my house as spotless and immaculate as these cottages were. Could use a few more dishes in the kitchen, and the fridge was small. But the cottage was perfect, the grounds beautiful, and quite honestly we were happy to give these amazingly hospitable and accomodating owners our business. We will... More

We stayed here for 3 nights in one of their motel rooms. The motel rooms had air conditioning whereas the cabins did not and since it was very humid while we were there, we opted for the room. Room was large, had a fridge, but no microwave. Owner was very pleasant and helpful. Loved the two chairs at the end... More

Owners are very accommodating. Clean, no frills. Small fridge in motel, can use microwave in office. Didn't have a bath mat until day 3 (didn't know they provided them and we brought some of our towels based on others reviews. Clean, good location would stay again. Only negative was the road noise which wasn't a problem.

We spent two nights here. The owner was so friendly and helpful. He recommended some places to go and a few restaurants. It rained one of the nights we were there and he brought rags for us and the other two guest that were there with motorcycles to wipe them off with. My husband loved being able to relax on... More

Owner was helpful in all ways, from rags to wipe of our bikes from the rain, rooms, and the best places to eat and to see. I'd give them 10 stars but they only have 5 on the site. Can't wait to go again.

The room was clean and comfortable. We had a room with two queens and it was facing the road. The owners were friendly, and booked us the night before check in. Did not use pool, only there over night.

We stayed for 2 nights very clean, the man who owned the place was very helpful and friendly. Alas the room was basic for what it was but the king size bed which I believe was new was probably one of the most uncomfortable beds I have ever paid to sleep on. I ended up with terrible lower back ache... More

I stayed at Sunnyside for a few days. It is spotless. The owners are friendly and helpful about what to do in Bar Harbor. Beautiful whispering pines and maples. The pool is nice and sparkly. Great selection of channels on TV, but the wifi is spotty.

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.
