The Sea View Suite was perfect for the three of us. The setting is perfect, the views stunning. It appeared to have new carpeting, living room furnishings and curtains. Nice large flat screen TV in the living room made hubby happy (who besides him want to watch TV with these views?) The kitchen is large and stocked with dishes, nice pots and pans, coffee maker, microwave, etc. We stopped at the grocery on the way in, so we appreciated the full-sized appliances - although I missed my dishwasher. The queen sized bed appeared to be relatively new. The king sized bed was older, judging by how low it was to the floor, but was comfortable and we slept great all 4 nights. Each bedroom had lots of storage. The bathroom was stuck style-wise in the 70's but no concerns. My FAVORITE part of this suite was the deck. We could sit on the deck, eat breakfast, dinner or enjoy an adult beverage along with the fantastic views. Because of the height of the deck, we were not bothered too much by insects.
When we arrived Dave was extremely helpful, he advised us on places to eat and activities to do. In later conversations he shared the story of his families ownership of the property over two hundred years, which is awesome. The suggestions he made were right on for us. We really appreciated having the laundry on site which was reasonably priced.
These were great accommodations for our needs and the shoulder season rates a wonderful bargain. I would recommend these motels and cottages to anyone who really wants to enjoy the quiet little cove and the great views away from the crowds and noise but be close to Acadia.
