Eight of us surprised my mother-in-law with a trip to Bar Harbor with help from Chris, one of the owners. Each couple had their own little cottage and spent time together on the lawn and beach. Everything was clean and the property is beautiful. It's a quick drive to downtown Bar Harbor, Acadia and numerous restaurants. Chris and Ashley were fabulous hosts. We hope to all gather again at Emery's Cottages next summer.

Location was great—on the water with beautiful sunsets. The cabin had what we needed. We slept great, the mattress was comfortable. We went on a boating excursion with Chris and it was fantastic! I would highly recommend this place. Great coffee, too!

My friend and I loved Emery's and stayed there several times. Not being a couple, we chose a cottage with two beds. Since our last stay, the cottage was updated with one bed, but I was never informed of the change. We found out only after driving eleven hours and trying to check in. The new management is nothing at all like the wonderful couple who used to own Emery's, Carol and Wally Grey. The new people had an uncaring, sarcastic attitude. They basically told us they'd bring in a cot and that was that. One of the staff told me I was rude to complain. I did not raise my voice to either of them or use coarse language, but evidently he felt that an unhappy customer should keep their mouth shut. I am very sad and doubt I would stay here again.

We are so pleased with our trip to Bar Harbor. Emery Cottages is THE place to stay. Close to town but far enough out to have incredible views and waterfront location. The cottage was very well appointed, clean, cozy and comfortable. The grounds of Emery are beautiful. Sitting areas, picnic tables, beachfront to walk, kayaks, boat tours , daily fresh coffee, laundry room, cook area. The hosts are so open and friendly. They had so much knowledge of the area and local history as well. And the sunsets are amazing. We WILL return to Emery Cottages one day soon.

Emery's Cottages on the Shore was the perfect, affordable place to stay for our trip to Acadia/Bar Harbor. Amenities are minimal but sufficient (morning coffee was all we used), but there is a laundry room and a guest kitchen available. Not fancy at all, but very quiet, clean, and comfortable. Our hosts also had great recommendations for restaurants! We would definitely stay here again.

We happened to snag two nights here last minute (drove in on a Saturday, needing 2 nights starting on Sunday). Staff was super friendly, and were very accommodating. The place is extremely clean and our cottage was set back from the bay (#5). It was very relaxing sitting on the lounge chairs by the water (chairs could use an upgrade; missing some bands, one fell back a few times). Only reason for not giving this place 5 stars, is that we were able to stay at a different cottage rental close by, that offered a bigger cottage with more amenities for a lower price.

Great hosts full of local advice and willing to go the extra mile! They have Cottages on the water, rental kayaks, with tours and lessons. Cottages are clean and updated. Watch the sunset from your own beach!

My boyfriend and I finished up our tour of New England vacation in Bar Harbor and were so delighted by our stay at Emery's. The cottages were super clean and windows were open upon arrival - during this scary covid time, knowing that fresh air had been flowing through all day was super comforting!) The cottages are simple and comfortable - we stayed in a unit without a kitchen/kitchenette, but their was a little fridge perfect for keeping leftovers and the local Maine beer we picked up. The location is wonderful! Quiet and right on the water, and only a quick ride into downtown Bar Harbor. When we arrived it was raining, but that didn't stop us from a relaxing little evening feasting on take-out lobsters on the cute little front porch, listening to the peaceful rain. And then the next evening we were treated to a gorgeous sunset! Chris in the front office was so helpful with kayak tips for ventures right from their beach. I'm a kayak guide back in NY and was impressed by the quality of their rental boats. Really pleasant stay - would definitely stay here again!

Emery's cottages were perfect. The pictures and cottage were exactly what they said the were, exceptionally clean and adorable. The cottages were located 5 miles from Bar Harbor which was perfect. I recommend staying in 1a it is the closest to water, if you don't need to have a kitchen. Very private. highly reccomend.
