“Quiet, friendly, very affordable”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 10, 2013

We stayed in the cabin and loved it. It is small but just fine for 2 people for a short visit. Quiet even though Bar Harbor is a busy place. The fact that it is a little outside the main town is quiet nice. The staff is delightful. Thank you, Laura, for all you helpful hints. We also appreciated having access to extra supplies plus the BBQ grill.

Room Tip: We would stay there again. Clean, quiet and charming.

This is our second year in a row staying at Bar Harbor Cottages and Suites and again It was a VERY pleasant experience. This was our 23rd wedding anniversary weekend so It was a very special time away for us. The cottage was VERY clean and felt like home. We brought another couple with us this year who had never been to Acadia and we were SO disappointed that they had closed the park the day before our arrival. Upon our arrival however, the young woman who manages the cottages, was SO helpful and gave my husband a lot of information on areas of the park we could navigate on foot. We ended up having WONDERFUL walks through different areas of the park, some we had never even seen before!!! Definitely a GREAT place to stay and Definitely we will be back to stay for another anniversary weekend!!!!!

Room Tip: The two cottages in the front have a beutiful view of the water from the front screened in porch...

The cottages themselves are extremely clean, cute, and have character. We felt right at home! It was quiet and about a 20 minute drive from Bar Harbor. There were even apple trees right on the property!

The first cottage we stayed at (12) was roomy and had a nice place to sit outside. Then we moved to cottage 6 which was a bit smaller (more beds), but had a great little screened in porch to sit at. Both are a solid choice!

Laura was quite possibly the most pleasant and helpful person I've ever dealt with - every morning she had numerous suggestions on places to see, things to do, and where to eat. It was awesome, couldn't ask for better accommodations. Will be back for sure.

Tiny but adorable the cottage had everything we needed - even a screened in porch with a "peek" of water view. Very friendly & welcoming office staff made us feel at home. Quiet location, but a drive into town - no coastal access so you need to drive to the beach as well. Charming & comfortable - a sweet stay!

Laura was extremely helpful during our e-mail booking process. It was delightful to meet her when we checked in. The cottage was comfortable and well-appointed and exactly as described (just be prepared for a very small shower); the location was peaceful and lovely. We were late arriving, and our key and helpful information was waiting for us in the 24-hour-open office. The cottages are convenient to everything on Mt. Desert Island. We enjoyed our three-night stay and would definitely stay at Bar Harbor Cottages again.

From the moment I booked our stay with Laura, I knew we would be in good hands. They had everything ready for us when we got there, and she greeted us with excitement. We loved that they had the front office are open 24 hours in case anyone needed information about the area and that we were free to get our own towels, etc. in the barn. The suite was clean, neat, nicely decorated and cozy. We loved the private enclosed porch in the back that looked onto a beautiful garden. Closet space was limited, but we made due. It was quiet and private, which was another bonus. At the end of our trip, Laura celebrated our engagement with us and we knew her congratulations were heart felt. We look forward to another stay here next year.

We enjoyed our stay here- the cottage we stayed in (#1) was just the right size and was a good value overall with it's proximity to Bar Harbor and other points of interest on the island. The owner and manager are very helpful and do go out of their way to make sure your stay Is enjoyable. The cottages are exactly as advertised. My wife and I spent 5 days mostly hiking all day and the cottage provided a nice retreat at the end of a long day out.
