Great value and location. Stayed in cabin for one night. Very helpful staff and tidy accomodation. Only slight negative was rock covered driveway. This was somewhat of a hassle with a touring motorcyle.

We (Wife, Myself and two teenage kids) stayed in the #1 cottage for four nights in mid June. It was very spacious had a separate TV/Living room, full kitchen/breakfast area, one bathroom, one common room with a queen and full bed and bedroom with a queen and a full bed. The cottage was clean and well maintained. It had a picnic table and gas grill in in front which we did not use. We did enjoy cooking eggs and bacon on the full size gas stove and a full size fridge held all the drinks and supplies for our short trips to Acadia NP. We never turned on the A/C as the weather was nice. We did enjoy the short walk across the street to the Down East Lobster pound. This Hotel is located just over the bridge from the Island where Bar Harbor and Acadia NP are located short 10-15 drive. You are very close to Ellsworth where you can buy Groceries. The wifi was a bit slow for us spoiled 4G/High speed city folks, however we didn't come to play on our phones. Only downside was one bathroom with four of us, but that was not much of an issue. I would highly recommend this Cottage for families, plenty of room, a bedroom with a door, and separate TV room.

Room Tip: I did see couples, singles, and a couple with a small child staying in the smaller cottages.

Thank you for your review. We are happy you found everything you needed to make your stay comfortable. We do understand about the Wi-fi as compared to bigger cities. We have purchased the fastest speed possible for this area.

We stayed here for four nights in the motel portion. We stayed in the double full bed room. The room was clean (it did have a slight musty smell - like an old seasonal cottage). The beds were comfortable. The mini fridge worked well. The bathroom was small and set up in such a way that it was awkward getting to the shower which was tiny (it would not be handicapped accessible) - but the water stayed nice and hot. Good room for the price. I would definitely stay here again.

Stayed here because we couldn't get to Acadia on time. Pretty decent stay and wasn't particularly good or bad. I was very pleased with the price though: $59. I definitely wouldn't mind staying here again.

Pros:
-Kind owner/staff
-Great location: close to Acadia and convenient to access
-Clean, simple room
-Nice atmosphere --the rooms were basically little cabins and you could basically just park right outside your room
-Value

Cons:
-My sister claimed the room smelled slightly funky, but I didn't notice anything
-Nothing really

Note: They no longer serve breakfast here.

Room Tip: The more expensive rooms seem to have designated parking spaces right next to them (as well as being...

My mother and I stayed two nights at a room in the small motel portion while spending time in Acadia. Our room was nice and we appreciated the coffee, donuts, muffins, and pastries available in the morning for breakfast. Staff was friendly. The location was good, with easy access to Bar Harbor, Acadia National Park, and several other parks, attractions, and many lobster restaurants. The only thing we had a problem with was very slow wireless Internet.

Thank you for your review. Our slow internet has just become an issue within the last 2 months. We upgraded our modem and router hoping that would help, but it has not. I think there are just too many devices these days with internet connectivity that our system cannot handle the load anymore. Next season we will be upgrading the service to accommodate this issue. We appreciate your comments.

What a lovely motel. It was so pleasant to have grass outside. The cabin had a great TV, cute, homey touches--even had blue checked sheets. The price was wonderful too and it was very convenient to Bar Harbor and Acadia Park. I'd stay there again in a heartbeat!

My boyfriend and I stayed at the Isleview for four days and were very satisfied. The hotel rate was very reasonable. Plus, the rooms were clean and quite. The Bar Har Loop bus stops right outside the door and is central to several very good lobster pounds. We would definitely stay there again.
