We had a two room cabin. It is a lot more roomy on the inside than the outside. The cabins are clean, well kept, and it feels like camping without actually camping (e.g., all the comforts of a cottage). The property owns the beach across the street, which is a great place for beach combing when the tide is low.... More

The cabins were very nice and simple. The location on Frenchman's Bay was very beautiful! restaurants within walking distance. the food was excellent, especially the lobster! Would go back! The location was close to Acadia National Park and Bar Harbor.

This is a throwback to the 1950s or sixties. It's a series of cabins with two bedrooms, refrigerator microwave and coffee pot plus Wi-Fi kinda... Great deal at $125/nt. Nice view of the ocean , with a heated pool and it's far enough off the road to be extremely quiet. Highly recommend it to anyone who doesn't feel like paying... More

Nothing fancy but we loved having our own "space." The cabin was just what we were looking for and quiet. Owners were accommodating. It is a little way out of Bar Harbor but well worth the drive to be away from congestion. The water view (across the road) is terrific.

My two little dogs and I stayed here last month and it suited our needs perfectly. The center lawn sweeping down to the beach across the road was beautiful and the desk attendant was very friendly and helpful. There is a wonderful restaurant right across the road where we walked to eat. Older, but with unmatched charm! I hope to... More

Do NOT book here. Worst experience ever, even considered reporting to the Better Business Bureau right now. Incompetent front desk staff, pathetic rooms even with "recent renovations", terrible maids. Owners don't seem to care about anything but themselves and the whole place is just a retched experience. Will probably end up making a BBB report. Seriously, DO NOT book here.... More

Reasonably priced cottages. Recently renovated older cottages with a beautiful view of Frenchman Bay. The rooms were clean and equipped with mini fridge, keurig coffee maker, microwave, flat screen TV and wifi. Some cottages have a full kitchen. There is a laundromat on premises. Also a nice pool situated in the center of property. The office staff was exceptional! It's... More

Last June I had stayed here with my husband. I had written a negative review the day we left, detailing our experience of this awful place. Only to find out today that my review had mysteriously been erased! We stayed in a cottage that was run down and musty, very deceiving since the photos look inviting and the website describes...

We took the whole family there, and it was great.. had our cabins in a line and could sit out and visit together.. The Bag Pipe player was wonderful, he plays on the rocks across the street and then comes up around the property.. My parents loved it as he came right to their cabin and played. The owners were...
