We have stayed in these cottages for 4 years running and have found Patti, the on-site manager, to be a wealth of information--both informative about the area and activities to do, as well as warm, inviting, and able to remember small details about conversations we've had from year to year. That's no small feat in our ever-impersonal society. We enjoy staying in these small cottages because they are personal, homey, and each one is different. We've stayed in 4 different ones thus far, and plan to work our way through the rest of them over the years.
This past year there was a problem with a faucet in the kitchen. We mentioned it to Patti, and she had someone in within the hour to get it fixed. How's that for prompt service? If you are a fan of personal interactions, cozy accomodations, and quick and easy access to Acadia and downtown Bar Harbor without the feel of staying in a tourist town, then this is the place for you.
