We loved everything about our stay, except for the design and layout of Cottage #1. It needs a better floor plan and updated design. The kitchen needs to be more functionable and the cute vintage shelving in the bathroom and hallways needs to be durable enough to actually hold bath towels, kitchen towels, and guest jackets... The cottage is very...

Stayed two nights in the Victorian cottage, inside was beautiful. No water access. Not a huge fan of the layout of the cottages, but not a huge deal. By layout I mean instead of a a more typical 'side by side parking by your cottage' layout, they were more scattered about the property. Very quiet, comfy setting but everything close.

I've stayed in cottages before across Maine, yet I have truly fallen in Love with Bar Harbor Cottages and Suites. These incredibly clean and simple retreats not only offer the feeling of having your very own vacation get away, but somehow feel as for a short time part of a community of utopia. Our cottage, #8 was a studio and...

This was our first visit to Bar Harbor.

The cottages are centrally located to Bar Harbor and Acadia National Park which is very convenient. They are relatively clean, but the furnishings are old and "tattered." The kitchen is well equipped so cooking is possible if one is trying to avoid eating every meal out. Laura, the manager, is lovely and well informed and helpful.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Bar Harbor Cottages and Suites in Bar Harbor, Maine have been serving visitors to the Acadia National Park and Mount Desert Island area for generations. Our traditional Maine cottage colony is nestled in a peaceful hamlet on a country road across the lane from a large cove. Our 12 pristine, charmingly renovated white cottages beckon visitors to our park-like setting. The cottages have either a partial water view or garden view and most have screened porches. To best serve your needs, we have various types of cottages which can accommodate 1 - 6 people. Those cottages which accommodate 3 or more persons have separate sleeping quarters for added privacy. We are conveniently located about 1.5 Miles to a public access beach, 4.5 Miles to the downtown business district, 3 miles to Acadia National Park and a 15 - 20 minute drive to the other coastal villages in the area. Open mid-May to late October. ... more   less
