love the cottage!it was very clean and well accessorized kitchen. Very close to Acadia and center of Bar Harbor!!! owners are very nice and very helpful with anything you need.There is plenty of room for the kids to run around and play games,since the cottages are located far away from the main road.100% will stay at this motel again!

We had a great stay here. The cottage we had was spacious, quiet, spotlessly clean, and very comfortable. We loved the screened porch! The grounds were cheery with beautiful landscaping. The owners were very nice. The location was convenient to the heart of Bar Harbor and to Acadia. I would definitely stay here again and would recommend it to others.

We needed a place to stay for one night and stopped at the Sunnyside. Luckily they had a room available (it was a busy Saturday). The first thing I noticed was the cleanliness of the office and the beautiful flowers surrounding the building, we got a good feeling and were not disappointed by the room. Things are well thought out... More

We visited in May of this year and had a great experience. We opted to stay outside of Bar Harbor for a quiet, more inexpensive place. The owner greeted us and informed us that we were one of the first groups of the season. He gave us a map to get us oriented for starting out the next morning and... More

Great place to rest your head after a busy day touring and hiking in Acadia National Park and downtown Bar Harbor. The owners are hands on and very personable. They keep a nice and quite place. The location is great for all activities.

Sunnyside was just over Trenton Bridge into MDI, so convenient to both Acadia, Bar Harbor, and the 'quiet side' of the island. It is in the country, and the buildings and grounds, although older, are kept up very well and incredibly clean. The room was a bit small, but we enjoyed our stay, and felt it was a good bargain....

The owners of this location are a wonderful couple that have owned this business for decades. Richard and his wife are nice people and we chose to stay at this location based on reading previous reviews. However, I cannot help but wonder if many of the previous reviews were slanted based on the fact that the owners are so nice... More

Helpful, friendly owners who let you enjoy their property in peace. Clean, quiet, and reasonally priced for the Bar Habor area. Loved the knotty pine walls. Within five minutes drive of some delicious food, Mainely Meats (breakfast and dinner with everything in between).
