First time we have been able to stay a week here, and you have to stay week to get a cabin. Shorter stays are great in the small (8 rooms) water front motel. But if you can stay a week, the cabins are where you want to be. All cabins have a incredible view of Salisbury Cove, and it truly...

Stayed for a week. Cottage was perfect for us, quiet area, very clean, comfortable, spacious. Deck overlooking water. Convenient location to Acadia and downtown Bar Harbor. Friendly, helpful owners. Looking forward to staying here again.

This is a GREAT location! We had a motel room and the room was immaculate and the view was excellent. Comfortable beds, clean room with two recliners and a wonderful view of the water. The location was great for Acadia National Park. Parking isn't always easy in Bar Harbor so driving into town for meals was hectic, but not too...

Our large, but simple, very clean, well furnished cabin overlooked a bay and we loved the location. The bathroom was large with new fixtures and the kitchen with a large sink, full size refrigerator, microwave, and two burner stove was well equipped for our simple meals -- cooking is not our choosen vacation activity. All the dishes, glasses, pots and...

Great little cottage on the bay. We stayed for five nights and just got back today. When we arrived, we were told all about the area, and when the cruise ships would be in town. Very friendly! The cottage was perfect, super clean, and very quiet. No complaints at all! We were a short drive from downtown. We stayed in...

Since I had never been to Maine before I was very nervous about where to stay. I stumbled upon this place. We love it. Our motel room had recently been redone. It was modern, clean and large. The view from our deck is amazing. I haven't been in a cabin but recommend the motel without hesitation. I would stay here...

We stayed in the motel part for 3 nights. It is a nice quiet spot with beautiful views. At check in, the office staff was sure to give me the weekly Acadia magazine and explained when the cruise ships came in, and asked if we had been here before. Since we have been to Bar Harbor many times, we really...

Today we wrap up our 7 day stay at the Edgewater Motel & Cottages, and we're sorry we have to leave. We stayed in the "Seaview Suite", which is kind of like a cabin over a garage.....and we LOVED it!! Very well appointed, and just our style of accomodations. It's not particularly luxurious, but VERY nice!! LOTS of room for...

Clean and updated rooms, beautiful views, wonderful hosts. This is our 15th year at the Edgewater. Every year there is something new & updated in our cottage. David and Jayne Bowden take real pride in their property. The rooms are spotless, comfortable and roomy. The kitchenette has every thing to cook a small or large meal. The outdoor grounds are...

We booked the Lodge Suite just about 3 weeks before visiting and loved every minute of our one week stay. Booking was easy. Owner/managers are wonderful and helpful. Views are spectacular. Perfect place for a family vacation. And to top it off, it was very affordable, given the price of other vacation rentals in the area. Would recommend staying here...
