“Pleasant stay”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 16, 2012

We stayed in one of the 2 bedroom cottages for 4 days. Owners were very helpful and did an excellent job of cleaning the cottage each day. The kitchenette was just right, however the area did need more lighting. We ended up bringing one of the laps out of the bedroom and sat it on the kitchen table. The bed was comfortable. The grounds were nicely kept and it was quiet. All in all a very good experience.

Sunnyside Motel & Cottages was a wonderful surprise. We stayed in the motel and were extremely pleased. The rooms were immaculate and the bed was very comfortable. The exterior is so cute, and very inviting. The owners, Richie and Mary, were a pleasure to deal with. You can tell that they take great pride in their property. We will definitely stay here again! Thank you Richie and Mary for a wonderful experience.

Sunnyside Motel and Cottages definitely exceeded our expectations!! We rented a cottage and 2 of the hotel rooms. They were all absolutely immaculate, furnishings quite comfortable and decorated pleasantly. The grounds were also nicely landscaped with cheery flowers in the many window boxes. The cottage was well equipped with anything you need in a kitchen. Towel's and bedding were abundant. The pool was a great place to cool off and let the little one's swim and play. Sunnyside is perfectly located about 12 minuets from downtown Bar Harbor. We loved it being away from the busy downtown area, but close enough to be there in a blink! The owner's I just can't say enough about, kind, caring, hardworking, friendly, accommodating. Like staying with family!! We can't wait to go back next year!! Thank You Dear Hosts!!

My wife and I stayed here for the first time last year, and really enjoyed our stay. Our cottage was large, comfortable and was done personally by the owner, Richard. It was a perfect stay. We decided to book the same cottage again for our stay this year. It was like going back to visit an old friend! The cottage was as we left it last year and Richard and his wife were so pleasant and appreciative of our returning to stay with them. In these days of NO customer service, it is nice to spend your money with people who truly appreciate it. Another great stay!

Room Tip: If you want a clean, comfortable cottage with nice owners, this is the place!

After having spent 2 weeks in hotels in New York, Boston (Hilton Double Tree) and in an apartment in Old Orchard Beach, we could end a journey on the highest note in a Sunnyside cottage.
The cottages look indeed sunny from the outside and are tastefully furnished. The rooms are big and the cottage is equipped by the owners who really seem to care about what travellers need. This is what I call the soul.
We have very much appreciated our stay.

as the majority of other reviews go, this place was worth the value on many levels. we decided to splurge on a cottage over a motel room for three days and found it VERY clean, efficient and well-equipped. space was cozy and immaculate, kitchen fully stocked with cookware, appliances, and dish ware. bathroom looked brand new and well-maintained. bed was spotless and comfy after a long day of biking in acadia, which the lovely owner told us all about at check in.

she was friendly and informative, had no problem taking the time to give us a bunch of great ideas for things to do around mt. desert island. sunny side is a bit far from bar harbor, but we REALLY didn't mind...so much to do and see in the park! minutes from the hulls cove visitor center at acadia. the grounds are full of flowers, everything looks well taken care of and freshly painted. we took full advantage of all the amenities while staying here, felt more like staying at your aunt's summer home than your typical "motel" stay. will definitely be back when we return to maine!!!

Room Tip: we had cottage 6 and were more than happy!

We where looking for a place to visit the Acadia national park and live outside most of the time. It's location is good because it is on the island and you are close to the two major roads the island has. It is however a 15min drive to Bar Harbor.
This place was perfect for a 3 day visit. The rooms are clean and spacious (the A.C. is a little loud) and every room or cabin has a nice porch or terrace to chill on or have diner. There is a neat pool at the back of the compound which makes it nice and quiet. The (free to use) BBQ is perfect.
The prices are a little higher than as displayed on the website but it still is good value.
