We had never stayed in cottages before and found them somewhat cramped. We found the cottage clean and the staff very friendly and helpful. The grounds are very nicely kept with flowers everywhere. We had a porch which was very nice for our morning coffee.

We arrived at Bar Harbor Cottages on Friday afternoon. We checked in and the manger was as sweet as can be and extremely knowledgeable about the island. She also advised us, that there was a "supply barn" on the property for any extras we may need at no charge. The supplies ranged from tabletop grills, silverware/dinnerware, extra towels, ashtrays, soap,... More

Very close to the entrance of Acadia. Easy drive into town. Cottage was cheerful and clean. The kitchen had all the basic pans and utensils that one may need. I would recommend that they buy Teflon - non stick frying pans for the cottages. The aluminum frying pan was hard to cook in.

This was a perfect location close to the main highway to national park and Bar Harbor proper. The information that was left for us, and recommendations that were given were spot on!!!! Accommodations were just right! All needs were met, and we were left alone!

This was a good choice for our family. Five of us, including three teenagers. We stayed four nights from July 3-7th, and had a great time. Our cabin slept 6, but with one bathroom it was snug for 5. However, we knew what we were getting having checked it all out online, and we didn't sit around in the cabin... More

We loved everything about our stay, except for the design and layout of Cottage #1. It needs a better floor plan and updated design. The kitchen needs to be more functionable and the cute vintage shelving in the bathroom and hallways needs to be durable enough to actually hold bath towels, kitchen towels, and guest jackets... The cottage is very... More

Stayed two nights in the Victorian cottage, inside was beautiful. No water access. Not a huge fan of the layout of the cottages, but not a huge deal. By layout I mean instead of a a more typical 'side by side parking by your cottage' layout, they were more scattered about the property. Very quiet, comfy setting but everything close.

I've stayed in cottages before across Maine, yet I have truly fallen in Love with Bar Harbor Cottages and Suites. These incredibly clean and simple retreats not only offer the feeling of having your very own vacation get away, but somehow feel as for a short time part of a community of utopia. Our cottage, #8 was a studio and... More

This was our first visit to Bar Harbor.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Bar Harbor Cottages and Suites in Bar Harbor, Maine have been serving visitors to the Acadia National Park and Mount Desert Island area for generations. Our traditional Maine cottage colony is nestled in a peaceful hamlet on a country road across the lane from a large cove. Our 12 pristine, charmingly renovated white cottages beckon visitors to our park-like setting. The cottages have either a partial water view or garden view and most have screened porches. To best serve your needs, we have various types of cottages which can accommodate 1 - 6 people. Those cottages which accommodate 3 or more persons have separate sleeping quarters for added privacy. We are conveniently located about 1.5 Miles to a public access beach, 4.5 Miles to the downtown business district, 3 miles to Acadia National Park and a 15 - 20 minute drive to the other coastal villages in the area. Open mid-May to late October. ... more   less
