We found it easy to get around and go hiking...

Cabins are my choice for lodging..and this one is the best I've ever been to. Located on the quieter (western) side of the island, the cabin was on the water, immaculately clean. Spotless interior with new appliances. A view of western bay out of the picture window facing west made for wonderful sunsets. Hop into your kayak/canoe and paddle for...

This place is exactly as described and pictured on their website. Cottage is cozy, but enough space to relax inside or out. Close to the water with kayaks and canoes available to use at no additional charge. Very relaxed atmosphere and quiet. Close to downtown Bar Harbor and Acadia, but also close enough to the quiet side of the island....

We traveled as two couples and found these cabins to be perfect. Construction and furnishings were simple and just right. Wifi and cable TV were provided. The kitchen was fully furnished. The beds were very comfortable and the views - wow! It is located in a protected cove. Kayaks and canoes are available for use. Ollie is very accommodating to...

This was our second stay at Windward Cottages. The cottages are roomy enough for four people and allow you to do your own housekeeping and cooking while on vacation. Linens, cooking utensils, and a grill are all furnished. Canoes and kayaks are provided if you would like to take a paddle around the bay. Because it is on the western...

We felt like we were all alone along the waterfront. Gorgeous views from the window. A bit chilly to sit out , but would be great on a warmer day. Clean and efficient. Conveniently located. Well equipped.

Stayed here in October, 2015, in cottage number 1. My daughter and I just loved it! Very clean, in the woods, right on the ocean. Super quite, comfortable beds, all kitchen utensils, even a lobster pot to cook your lobster in and a small portable electric fan. Free DVD's and hiking literature. Also kayaks for free use and free wifi....

The manger Ollie and his wife are wonderful people and do an excellent job of maintaining the cottages. The cottage was extremely clean and the location was not to far from Bar Harbor or Acadia Park. It was very relaxing here and will definitely like to come back again.

I agree with previous reviewers' comments totally. We stayed at Founder's Cottage which is the original home of Ollie and Kelli. It is rather plain on the outside but so beautiful and comfy inside, especially the 2 cushy leather rocker recliners. They swivel so we got great views of the cove. Ollie and Kelli are so terrific. ..they allowed us...

Absolutely loved it hear and would go back again in a second! The Owner can always be found for questions. The cottages are exceptionally clean and no cleaning cover up smell. They are in a wooded area away from the highway noise nestled in among the trees and looking out on the bay. Canoes and Kyacks are there for your...
