“Adorable Cottages”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 23, 2012

Though smallish, these cottages are very nice & comfy!!! Great place to stay for a few days!
We had a very nice queen bed in ours, that was super comfortable! It had a mini fridge, coffee maker, hair dryer and a nice flat screen TV. Also had AC if you needed it! The owners take very great care of the property, very neat, clean & inviting!! There was an area in their office for free donuts and coffee in the mornings also! I would definately stay there again! The only thing that that I didn't like was the towels had a terrible musty/mildewish smell, when I took them into the office they exchanged them though!

We are glad you were happy with your accommodations! Just a side note to future customers that maid service comes in every day to replace towels unless there is a "do not disturb" sign on your door. All towels are washed and dried everyday with fabric softener to eliminate any scratchiness or odors!

We had a very nice 3-night stay at this location. Our party stayed in one double room in the motel and one of the above-office rooms; each was clean, and had everything we needed. The owners and staff were very competent, pleasant, and above all, voluntarily helpful. They offer a nice, simple continental breakfast in a pleasant area. The location is extremely convenient, on the road onto Mt.Desert Island and with 2 lobster pounds located nearby. From here you can drive well into either side of the island within 20-30 minutes or so. The only downside of this location is that it is on a busy road; none of us found that this presented a problem once we were ready to turn in for sleep and in the rooms over the office it is barely noticeable.

All of us would highly recommend this establishment, and for the value price it is even better!

We stayed here in June 2012 stayed in the big cottage. great location for daily trips to Bar Harbor and area. the big cottage had everything we needed for our stay including the fire pit out back ,we took our graham crackers and marshmallows out and enjoyed the evening plus a deer ran through while we were out there! We will be back for sure(it was a bonus that there is a Lobster pound accross the street) and a grocery up the road.

Room Tip: there is a minimum stay required for the big cabin(which has a kitchen with pots pans dishes coffee...

We stayed here in early July after our 2 hour drive from Augusta and arrived tobe greeted by the friendly owner and well kept, attractive grounds. The Cottage was very clean and spacious enough for two people. The double bed was a bit small, but manageable. Although it is on the main road, the noise is minimal with the ac/fan unit running. There was coffee and muffins for breakfast but if your hungry, go back up the road or head down to Grumpy's in Southwest Harbor for a breakfast view of the harbor. Don't bother with the lobster pound across the street- it was not good and was dirty - head 1/4 mile north or south to some others. We will be back.

This motel is conveniently located minutes away from Bar Harbor and Acadia National Park! My boyfriend and I stayed in a budget room located above the office and it was exactly what we needed. A clean room with a bathroom, a tv and free wifi! It was super clean and cozy!

This is a great motel/cottage to stay at if you are looking for a cheaper place to spend your nights that is close to Bar Harbor/Acadia, is clean, and offers free wifi, this is the place.

If you are looking for something a little more luxurious this might not be your pick but if you want a nice place to sleep after a day on Mt. Desert Island thats close by, choose Isleview Motel and Cottages.

The Isleview room we stayed in was very clean. Yes, it is a bit out-dated but, I would rather have clean outdated furnishings than newer dirty ones. The lady at the front desk was very nice. We could not hear any road noise or other guests while in the room. I would definitely recommend the Isleview if you are looking for a no frills, very clean, comfy place to rest your tired body after visiting the Breath-taking, Aw-inspiring views of the Acadia National Park.

The beds were super comfy!
Great Seafood Restaurant across the street.
Convenient visitors center next door.
The Acadia loop road and Bar Harbor were minutes away.

Bar harbor hotels are very expensive. This place met our basic requirement of a good bed, clean, and good value. The room can be a little tight for luggage, but we put what we needed in the dresser and put our luggage back in the trunk. Rooms are kept very clean and owners were very nice to chat with.
