“Beautiful ocean and tide view on the water”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 May 2011

The Cottages are small and quite simple (no really kitchenette as advertised, only microwave) but very cosy and romantic - you sleep nearly on the ocean (if you get a cabin in the first row) or nearby the water. You can watch the tide come and go on your patio - including a beautiful sunset/ sundown. And all for a very reasonable price ($55 and up). We had to stop by the restaurant to get some things (silverware etc.). But the staff was very friendly. If you are hungry you can eat really good fish or lobster in the nearby "Chartroom Restaurant" (same owner). We loved the view most. And of course the location - nearby the entrance of the Acadia National Park and only a stone's throw away from beautiful Bar Harbour centre.

Room Tip: Book early in advance (gets crowded)

3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 July 2010

Advertised as self catering. It isn't self catering at all! It's a lie. No crockery, no cutlery, no hob, no oven, no 'kitchenette' as advertised. This is a blatat infringement of advertising regulations, surely. The facilities comprised only a microwave and a shared outdoor gas barbecue and a fridge/coffee maker. We therefore massively exceeded our self catering budget because WE HAD TO EAT OUT EVERY NIGHT!!! I resented having to go into the Chart Room restaurant night after night to borrow plates, cutlery and glassware. The maids removed these things daily even though we washed them and stored them above the fridge.

Aside this, the cabin was cosy (it's very small) and we enjoyed great views of the ocean from our decking. Decent location but on a very busy road (the main road into Bar Harbor). The free islander bus stop is just across the road and the national park entrance is nearby.

Daily house keeping but not paeticulalry clean. Everything you can see is clean but under the beds and inside the drawers were filthy.
