“Met our needs”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 30, 2014

We recently stayed in motel room 28. It was clean and the beds were quite comfortable and the bed linens were fine also. Housekeepers were very friendly. Best part of Eden Village is definitely the grounds. The pond is lovely and had many geese and duck there for the 5 days we were there. Would stay there again. As it sets back from the road --it is also very quiet.

This was a great place to stay if you like being away from the noise and traffic of downtown.
IT was quiet and has a lovely pond and property. The staff was helpful and friendly. it was easy to get into the park without going through town.

Very quiet, very clean, so much room inside the cottage, plenty of towels. Bathroom a bit small but clean. No closet space but plenty of draws. Kitchen was very clean and had everything we need it to cook. The city was not that far 14 minute drive, same for Arcadia park. The lady at the front was nice and check out was a was very easy. Ah the internet was VERY BAD!

Knowing we would be arriving late to Mt. Desert Island we wanted someplace to stay overnight before setting up camp in the park the next day. We stayed in the motel which was lovely and spacious. The decor isn't the ritz, but perfect for our stay. The room had a kitchenette, two beds, a small bathroom and some extra room to spare. Both sides of the room had a porch with chairs to sit out on. Our children (ages 10+11) loved the property though we weren't there long enough to take advantage. The staff were welcoming and helpful. I would recommend the motel or the cottages. You might want to note that the location is close to Hulls Cove Visitor Center yet far from Bar Harbor & a lot of the sites in Acadia.

We just left Eden Village where we stayed for about a week. It's a simple but clean and comfortable motel located close to the Hulls Cove entrance to Acadia and to Bar Harbor. The motel and cottages are set back from the road, so it's completely quiet at night. The grounds are lovely, and our kids were allowed to fish (catch and release only) in the pretty pond on site. The staff were available and responsive, and the price - compared to everything else in the area - very reasonable. The best part was watching the stars from the back deck of the motel - the best view of the Milky Way we ever had!

We arrived at Eden Village on Friday evening a bit later than anticipated. We emailed the hosts on the way there to inform them about our late arrival and this was no problem.
In contrast to many other cottage parks in the area, this "village" is setup in a spacious way so that you have a nice view from your window and do not look directly into each others house. There's a nice pond which offers a great view in the morning, and you can even go peddel boating in it for free. Also, there's a basket and a ball, if you're into playing basket ball.
The house we stayed in was relatively small, but just perfect for the weekend. It had a big living room table, 2 proper queen sized beds and a couch. Also, both beds were located in different rooms with each there own television.
The kitchen had a stove with two heaters; perfect for making eggs at breakfast, but you wouldn't really want to cook a large meal there. With all the crab shacks in the area it's anyway nicer to go out for dinner.
The service was good: Every day the cottages were cleaned, and we received extra coffee pads for free upon request.
All in all we had a great time at the eden village cottages.

I wanted to go camping but my husband did not. I hate hotel rooms and wanted to cook outdoors. This was the perfect compromise.The price was right (better that others near by) plus each cottage has a grill and picnic table. The cottage (#8) is really a cabin and it is very small. There is not an inch to spare, but that is what we expected. It had most every thing we needed. It was clean, comfortable and very quiet (not too close to the road). However, on the first night I went to grill and the grill collapsed as the legs had rusted off. It was replaced the next day. The front burner of the stove did not work. I reported it and was told that it would be fixed right away, which is was not. If you plan to cook you might want to bring your own pans. The frying pan was small and crappy. The eggs I tried to cook stuck right to it. I had to buy a frying pan while we were there. The coffee machine is a Keurig and they only leave enough for three cups. Our last day was very cold and rainy so we had a wonderful fire in the fireplace. They sell hard wood right there and it was very nice. Despite the few problems, it is what we expected and wanted and we would recommend this place.
