“Clean comfortable cabins within a couple of miles of Bar Harbor and Acadia”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 25, 2013

We just finished up our week at Hutchin's Mountain View cottages. It is our 12th year staying with them. The cabins are nice, clean and comfortable. The screened in porches are an added bonus with great views of Cadillac. The cabins are well built and you actually have some space between cabins and some privacy. In prior years, we had stayed in other camping cabins in the area where you have barely any space between cabins and you can hear the conversation of the people in the next cabin. You can't get a better location with access to both town and the park.

Our family stayed here for a long weekend while visiting the island and park. Our cabin didn't look special on the outside, but it was clean and we loved the screened in porch. The bathroom could stand a little bit of love, but this isn't a fancy place. It is clean, let's you have more than a hotel room, and had a large open outdoor space. We would stay here again.

Simple, small cottages but very clean and friendly staff. Far enough in from main road so no noise, but access to free bus service and road are easy. Good price for the season. Peaceful property. Theres a swimming pool, though we never used it.

I absolutely loved these cabins and the 20 acres of meadow and property they are on. My dog Lucy loved it even more and made many doggie friends while there. We spent many afternoons on the enclosed porch enjoying the view of the mountains and the breeze. It is close to Bar Harbor and the Park ,and restaurants are close by too. If you would rather stay in your cabin in the evening as I did many nights, they have well equipped kitchens to prepare your meals with a stove, oven and full size refrigerators. They also have picnic tables outside your door to enjoy. I saw deer in the early morning and turkey in the evening right on the property. Although it is conveniently located right on RT 3, it is quiet and back from the road.
This place is well taken care of and your needs attended to without being effusive.
I found Hutchins Mountain View Cottages to be the perfect place for me and my dog to enjoy the perfect vacation.

Room Tip: If you are bringing a pet I would recommend the cottages at the far end of the meadow.

We used Hutchins Cottages for an overnight and base for touring Acadia NP. They are located a couple of miles from Bar Harbor near the entrance to the park and Visitor's Center. Our cabin had a nice view of the mountains and served us well. Nice little kitchen, screened porch and very quiet location.

The Hutchins family has owned these cottages since 1938 and the family pride is evident in everything associated with the place. The location is convenient to Acadia National Park and Bar Harbor. There is a nice restaurant about a mile from Hutchins. The service was terrific, but not invasive. The cabins are extremely comfortable, more roomy than many of the other cottages in available in the area. The interiors are in fantastic shape and include a full kitchen. The beds are very comfortable. The view from the front porches and the outside is of the mountains of Acadia. There is a large mowed field in front of the cabins so the view is unobstructed and it provides a nice area to walk in or play catch. This is a completely dog friendly lodging and you can walk you dog down the field and into the woods if you want to. There were a number of dogs staying at Hutchins while we were there, but they were all well-controlled and it was fun to watch them play. Cable TV and WiFi is provided. We strongly recommed Hutchins Mountain View Cottages.
