Reviewed June 23, 2011

Super cordial hosts who were very helpful and informative reference local history, geography and area restaurants including lobster pounds. They also provide hot coffee in the mornings. A quiet cottage setting overlooking Frenchman's Bay that offers beautiful sunsets at day's end. Cottages are immaculate and reasonably priced . If you like peace and quiet and natue.............Emery's will be a good choice.

My wife and I stayed in cottage 2A and it was wonderful, relaxing and the location is convenient to Acadia and Bar Harbor.
I have nothing but good things to say, the owners are very friendly,the cottages were clean and the property spotless.
We can't wait till next June when we plan on returning.

Well maintained, clean and with very comfortable accomodation, from the minute we arrived we felt welcome with the warm greetings from our hosts. Nothing was too much trouble and all our needs were catered for and then some. We stayed in a cottage with a well stocked kitchen. The site had a great beach with bbq facilities and a picnic area to gather in or more secluded chairs to sit, glass of wine in hand and enjoy the beautiful sunset. We didn't want to leave and did so reluctantly, with plans to return when we can.

We love Emery's. We have stayed there many years, and this is what we consider Heaven. After the first few days of the first years stay, Wally and Carol were like family. I can not imagine better hosts. Everything has always been spotless, and well kept, and anything we ask about is provided. We have stayed in various cottages at Emery's and each has been great. Need a restaurant referral; we have gotten the best recommendations. Ideas, information, etc. they are the best. I would, and have recommended Emery's to family and friends. The only problem is they are so far from home, and it is hard to get there every year. It is a 15 hour drive, but we are going to do it again this year. Can't wait to cook lobster and feast on the ocean. Yep, Heaven. Thanks to the Emery's.

Room Tip: We have stayed in various cottages, all are great!

We stayed in cottage 16 - queen bed with kitchenette - for a long weekend and loved it. The cottages are in a quiet area north of Bar Harbor. The owners Wally & Carol were very nice and offered suggestions of places to go, things to do. We will definitely be back.

This place is NOT child friendly and the owners are unfriendly. We brought business (numerous family and friends) to the place for over 10 years and were treated like dirt the last couple of visits. We refuse to go back.

I agree with everyone's post. Emery's is a great place to stay, clean, relaxing, quiet, just a really nice place to stay. The owners are very nice, and have great Acadia advice. The location is perfect. We had a really good time, visiting the park. I have already recommended Emery's to a friend.
