The reviews of the Villas are correct. The furniture is tired, and we had an old, huge tv in the bedroom, but the units were clean and we had a comfortable stay. We had a "2 bedroom" Villa. This is actually two separate units with separate private entrances, that share a small foyer which houses the washer/dryer. There are differences between the A and B units. The A unit has a much larger kitchen with ample counter space and a dishwasher. The B unit kitchen has almost no counter space, and does not have a dishwasher, but does have a garbage disposal. The bedrooms are about the same, except in the B unit the TV was a flat screen, while in the A unit it was an old big tv. There are plenty of dishes and cookware. We traveled with friends staying in the Manor, and we could easily cook dinner for 6. The dining table in the A unit will seat 6 comfortably. There are no planned activities, but there is so much to do around the area that I don't know why anyone would want to just stay at the resort.
Our friends were in a 2 bedroom Manor. These units are much more up to date, being only 12 years old. If you have small children and want a 2 bedroom unit, stay in the Manor. The Villa units would not be a good choice with small children. With teenagers, the Villa is a great option. It affords complete privacy when desired. The Villa units would also be a better choice for 2 couples traveling together. Just be prepared for tired furnishings when you open the door, After that? Relax and enjoy your stay. This resort is in a perfect location for visiting Bar Harbor and Acadia National Park. There is a $15 weekly fee for internet which worked great. There is a terrific grocery store, Shaw's, less than a mile away.

We were in a unit that was part of single story duplex units. There was no one in the unit next to us so I can't tell how insulated the walls are. I loved having a free washer and dryer right outside my door! It's shared with only the unit next to us. It was a clean and comfortable unit. I loved having 2 bathroom sinks. There is a jet tub but I'm not a fan of tubs. There was plenty of room in the unit. Parking was rght next to the unit. The staff was very nice!
Not bad traveling in and out of the Mount Desert area.

The 1 bedroom unit that we were in was a bit old and tired, and small. Furniture appeared decades old, flea market finds. The indoor heated pool was nice however the spa was more like a home type spa vs a resort size.Unfortunately the pool and offices closed at 8:45 pm so we only made it there once. The desk staff were all very friendly, pleasant, and helpful. Thankfully they had an eggcrate pad for the sofa bed because our granddaughter would have been unable to sleep on the very spring filled mattress. Very convenient distance from Bar Harbor and Acadia National Park.

Stayed week of 4th of July as a family of 4. This was a trade from interval. First let me say that I am a New Englander and understand the term "resort " in northern New England does not mean the same as it does in Florida or any other huge tourist draws. There is one indoor pool, a small game room with ping pong, games and some movie rentals. WiFi will cost 15 dollars for the week and there are very few "extras". There are no tours or activities offered and our outdoor deck had 4 plastic chairs for sitting and no table. Along with these differences though, we were not contacted or hassled once to buy another timeshare, upgrade etc etc. In fact, we had a very quiet, peaceful week with no contact from staff.
The 2 story villa had enough room and was definitely clean. I always wear socks in hotels and those always tell the story! Sheets, towels were clean and did not stink of bleach. The furniture however was very uncomfortable and had a bit of funky odor. Beds were pillow tops but desperately needed to be replaced as there was a big dip in middle. My husband opted to sleep on the couch several nights (not the pullout as that was the worst of all). Yes, all the furniture is dated and worn, but clearly some improvements and upgrades were made..new paint, appliances, tile, bathroom fixtures in downstairs bath. Washer and dryer very helpful for week stay. No air conditioning in unit, but was not needed even on hot days, as there is a great cross breeze all the time. There are new ceiling fans also.
Location can be a positive or negative. ..depending on what you want. It is right off busy Rte 3 and walking distance to fast food, Rite Aid and 2 grocery stores just 3 min away. Acadia is about 20 to 25 min straight down Rte 3. Bar harbor is another 10 mins or so from there.
If paying, I would opt for something closer to where you want to be as there is no big draw to stay here other than having a larger place with full kitchen and washer. If you are trading a timeshare, just be prepared that it is probably not at the same level as your home resort..but adequate with all the basics covered and clean.

We have owned timeshares and have been trading units through Interval International for over 30 years. This is by far the worst unit we have ever stayed in. The furnature is dated and looks like it came from the Salvation Army.They couldn't have spent more than $5 per pair for the curtains. The appliances and furnishings haven't been changed in years and the accessories are cheap (spoons bend when attempting to eat ice cream). Wallpaper is peeling in a number of places.

The best things are the beds and towels: beds are comfortable and towels are large and fluffy. But don't try to turn around in the master shower. The second bedroom has no shower. There is one in the downstairs bathroom (yes, its a full flight up), which is handy if you're in the kitchen/living room area, and is meant for people sleeping on the pullout couch.

As previously reported, they do charge for wi-fi. there are 2 tvs; the one in the master is a 24" tube type. The one in the living room is a 32" flat screen. There is also a combo DVD/VCR (really. a VCR!). Cable is limited to basic channels.

If you don't mind basic and rustic accommodations and want to be close to Acadia National Park and Bar Harbor, this will serve. But be prepared to rough it a bit.
