Great little B and B. On the quiet side of the island, Don is super nice and helpful. Only 25 min to Acadia. Room was nice, easily fit a third bed and we all slept great. Breakfast was good. Yummy homemade blueberry muffins made by his wife. Loved it.

My husband and I headed to Acadia National Park for the first time and decided to stay on the quiet side of the island. Southwest Harbor was a perfect location, it had a great little downtown area with yummy places to eat and wasn't far from the main park area. Our stay at the Lodge-ings was wonderful, Don (our host),... More

I stayed here with a friend during our girls' trip to Maine and highly recommend this bed and breakfast. Our room was comfortable with a nice shower/private bath that was much-needed after our busy days hiking/biking in Acadia. Don and Marge are very friendly, and we enjoyed chatting with them during our stay. They were quick to help provide directions,... More

Don and Marge Lodge (yes, the B&B is a play on their last name) run a nice business. The rooms are clean, beds firm, and the price is hard to beat for MDI. Don prints off a breakfast menu each day and each guest can order whatever they want for the following breakfast, as well as specify what time you... More

We stayed in The Lodge-ings for 3 nights and wished we could stay longer. The B&B has comfortable, impeccably clean rooms, inviting library, cozy porch with water view to the bay, but the highlight is definitely the gourmet breakfasts. Don does all the cooking, and Marge does all the baking, together they do a magnificent job. The room is packed... More

We stayed at Lodge-Ings over the Independence Day weekend. The room was cozy and nice with the view of the harbor. It is at a great location away from the crowd of Bar harbor but close to Acadia national park. Breakfast was nice with lot of options to choose from.
