“Seaview Cottage”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 13, 2013

Nice, comfortable, roomy and great views from the deck. Usually get a room. Much nicer having more space. Felt homey and more relaxing than a hotel room. The gas fireplace was nice to have and cozy on chillier nights. Good stay.

We were very pleased with all the facilities. The view was fantastic. The food was enjoyable and the staff was great. We found Cape Rosier and we stopped in Freeport. A great trip.and good base for seeing a lot of the area. We took the 2 hour boat trip and saw a lot of sea animals..

We were very pleased with the room in the Willows which includes a full breakfast served by very attentive staff. The room was huge and the deck overlooking the water was large. We went on the front porch of the Willows every evening to drink some wine and watch the sunset. It felt like our own private retreat. I will request room 811 on our next visit. They also reserved us a great table at the Reading Room in Bar Harbor Inn on a Saturday night. Great staff and great value!!!

Room Tip: Stay at the Willows

Atlantic View Building - room was large and very comfortable and clean. Had a great view of the bay and the balcony was nice for sunrise photos. Continental breakfast was also very good. Very close to Acadia and only a short drive to downtown Bar Harbor.

Room Tip: Several different buildings on property so choose room/building based on your preference.

I have stayed at AO three times in the last two months and have had good experiences each time. The views are incredible from the private balconies in each room I have stayed in building four and building six, both have been clean and comfortable. Overall very pleasant place to stay and convenient to get to and close to down town.

The pictures and description of The Willows accommodations is exactly what we experienced. The view from our patio was gorgeous - pictures do not do it justice. For us, Bar Harbor was a 25-minute walk from the Willows but if you are not up for a walk, the At Your Service Taxi and Tours will take you into town at a VERY reasonable price and their drivers were very fun and friendly. Fishing charter and site seeing boats were both accessible from the dock behind The Willows. Our package included a choice of any breakfast item on the menu and they offered an extensive complimentary continental breakfast as well. The breakfast food was excellent! The only negatives for us was the outside hot tub was not clean - this could have been the time of year we were there - however, if they stopped cleaning it they should have closed down the pool/hot tub area. We felt the indoor hot tub had too many chemicals. Our room was large and beautiful. The bathroom was quaint but needed more shelves or a small table to hold personal items.

Room Tip: We went with a group of friends and were able to see the views from four rooms. Every room had a bea...
