We have been coming here since our oldest child was a toddler (he's married now). The cottages are modern and spotless and the location, right on the bay, is tremendous. We start each morning by taking our kayaks out and see seals, porpoises, and the occasional bald eagle. It's also a wonderful place to swim. Gail and Carroll are wonderfully... More

My husband and I planned months in advance for out anniversary trip and our first stop was Seaside Cottages. We were NOT disappointed at all! The house (#6) was exactly as expected, and more. Watching the tide go in and out, digging a clam right on the shore, watching the gulls go after the clams and crabs, to seeing a... More

We came from Texas to visit our daughter and her family in the Boston area this spring. She said wanted to go to Acadia National Park for the weekend so I started searching for information on the area. I found this location on the acadiamagic.com website. I was hoping the location was as good as the pictures of the website... More

This was our first trip to the area, so we wanted a nice place to use a base while checking out the sights. Seaside Cottages was perfect for us. A short drive to Bar Harbor and Acadia NP while having peace and quiet at night. Many points on the island can be reached with a short drive. The cottages are... More

We had never visited Bar Harbor, Maine so did not know what to expect before arriving to Seaside Cottages. We were pleasantly surprised. We stayed in cottage #3 which was spacious and very comfortable. Carroll and Gail were the most gracious hosts, always friendly and helpful (we got lost when we first arrived in Bar Harbor). The cottages are conveniently... More

We have stayed at Seaside a couple times in recent years and have always been pleased with every aspect of our stay. The cottages are clean, bright and well equipped with great views. Carroll and Gail are wonderful hosts, very accommodating, friendly and helpful. We recommend Seaside Cottages in any season.

These cottages are just a delight. Right on the water, with stunning views, and a bedroom, lounge and kitchen if you want to eat in. A little distance from Bar Harbor so you do not have to be with the crowds, but well situated to go and see all the sights and beauty of Acadia Nat'l Park. I'll never forget... More

We had a beautiful one bedroom cottage fully equipped with a view of the cove right outside our two windows. Gorgeous ! The property is immaculately kept and the cottage is comfortable and clean. It is a drive to bar harbor and Acadia national park or you can catch the shuttle close by. It was a minor inconvenience to have... More

Nothing bad to say about this location. The Lelands, who own the property, went above and beyond to help make our vacation top notch. Our cottage was clean and spacious. The property itself is so peaceful and relaxing. About a 15 minute drive from the tourist district of Bar Harbor, but well worth the travel. Our family had such a... More

When we travel, we enjoy staying in cabins or cottages and have stayed in many. Nothing can compare to this beautiful cottage. I found Seaside Cottages on an on-line search and booked cottage #7 for my husband and me. It was like having your own private condo. The cottage was immaculate and had every possible amenity you can imagine. Right... More
