“Short vacation”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 12, 2014 via mobile

My daughters and I have been coming here for the last eight years. Mostly for a short stay while on our way to a final destination. We have always been extremely happy with all aspects! Extremely clean, well kept and the owners Helena and Richard are always ready to help.
The thing I think I like the best is that they always remember us, and are always excited to see my daughters and how they have grown. Very family friendly place! Thank you for all you do to make your establishment great!

Stayed August 2014

We recently spent 3 nights (one 1-bedroom cottage and one motel room). The units were spotless and Richard and Helena were a delight....they take great pride in their property and are very visible and helpful. The only negative I can think of is the washer and dryer were very dated and the dryer took forever to dry our clothes. Highly recommended!

Recently stayed at the Sunnyside cottages. Cottage 6 was very clean and comfortable. The innkeepers were very friendly and made recommendations for Lobster Pounds , grocery stores ,and restaurants. Providing us with a map and details. The establishment is motorcycle friendly and had laundry facilities. I liked the location as it was convenient to Acadia National Park but out of the hustle and bustle of town.

I recently stayed in a cottage with three other people and had a great time. The cottage was meticulously cleaned daily by the wonderful maids, enough to please my OCD tendencies. The kitchen is small but functional. We cooked most of our own meals and it was a little challenging with only two burners and no oven but it was manageable. The owners were very nice and informed us of everything we needed to see and do and were right! Would stay there again.

We truly enjoyed the cottage, reminded us of our first little apartment when we were first married.
It has a little kitchen and bathroom which are a bit dated (and cozy), but this is exactly what you get with this type of rental.
We wish the mosquitoes weren't so bad so that we could have sat outside and enjoyed the night.
The only drawbacks were the pillows (hard) and no air conditioner but the night was cool enough that with the fan they provided it was a comfortable night!
We did not have time to use the pool, but it looked nice, just your average motel pool.
The owners were very helpful and friendly...would stay again!
And by the way...LOVED the yellow color of the cottages!

Room Tip: Cottage #3 was very nice

We stayed one night, 4th of July, 2014! It was a bit old fashioned, but the bathroom was fully updated and all new. The room was very clean, and while dated, the appliances were well cared for and fully functional. We were there through the last gasps of Hurricane Arthur, and slept like babies. The only suggestion I would make to the lovely proprietors is to move the AC units in the rooms up off of the walls down by the floors. Locating them so low makes it hard for oldsters like us to see the controls, and it doesn't cool as efficiently since cold air falls and heat rises. We got innovative and put the luggage holder in front of the unit with my briefcase propped up at an angle in front of the vents. This channeled the cold air up and through the room for a comfortable night; important since the driving rain kept the windows closed! The owners are adorable and lively, and very conscientious about their little property. I stayed in one of the cabins over 20 years ago, and its still the same couple! Clean room and great value!

Room was clean and staff was very helpful. All their advise about what to see and best deals was 'right on'. Wish we had time to try out the pool... owners very pleasant and helpful. Made the trip to Bar Harbor worth every minute. Thanks.
