There are a lot of little cottages on the island to choose from and we love that we ended up staying here. Many of the island's cottages are on the main drag but this property is off a side road and much quieter. The manager, Laura, is so friendly and accommodating and the cottages themselves are like little camps...somewhat rustic... More

If you ever wondered if you could live in a tiny house with your better half then this is the place for you. Quiet, cozy, quaint, beach charmed cottage. Beautiful flowers everywhere. All the amenities of home just smaller. Minutes from entrance to Acadia Park & downtown. Screened porch, comfortable bed, shower, kitchenette, tv, air conditioner. Bring some candles, champagne,...

My boyfriend and I visited Maine for the first time and loved it! Our cottage was the perfect size for us and everything we needed was provided.

We had a very small two room plus bathroom cottage #6. The bedroom had two twin beds which was great for our kids, but it was very hot until it cooled down at night. The AC didn't reach the room, and there was no fan. We loved eating out at the picnic table under the crab apple tree. We only... More

We enjoyed our stay at this beautiful property. The kids were able to run around in the grass next to our cottage (#12). We were able to borrow a grill from the "barn" and cookout one night. Very close to Acadia NP visitor center. Very pleased with our stay, highly recommended!

We chose a two bedroom, sofa bed with kitchenette for our stay. This property has several adorable housekeeping cottages, grouped together higgly-piggly, in a convenient location from which to explore MDI. All of the cottages appeared in good repair, some having screened porches. The grounds are landscaped nicely and have a view of the bay across the road, but no... More

Charming old-style cottages. We stuffed four adults and all our traveling stuff in a 2 BR w/sofa bed. Amazingly, even the sofa bed was comfortable (although not plushy comfy. Let's be honest.).

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
