Edgewater Motel & Cottages
Ranked #13 of 41 Hotels in Bar Harbor
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 25 September 2015

We stayed 2 nights at the Edgewater and were very pleased with the motel. It is located on beautiful Frenchman's Bay and the view is spectacular. This was our first trip to Bar Harbor and Acadia -- so we were busy trying to get everything in -- so didn't get to enjoy just relaxing on the porch. Their location is convenient to all the major attractions -- but located in a very quiet area. Would definitely recommend this to other visitors to the Bar Harbor area.

My cousin and I visited MDI for a week (9/12 - 9/19) and stayed in the Lodge Suite. What a perfect week! The beds were comfortable, there were plenty of pillows and towels, the kitchen was well equipped, the screened porch overlooked the cove (most meals were eaten there), there was wood supplied for the fireplace, the Wi-Fi worked for us, housekeeping came and took trash and brought towels as needed and we were able to park at the door. We had one minor plumbing issue, which David took care of IMMEDIATELY! Great response! When we arrived, he also led us to the suite, which is one of three in a large house a little bit away from the motel and individual cabins. The Edgewater is on Old Bar Harbor Rd, which is off of the main highway. Very quiet. And it is very close to the Visitor Center for Acadia National Park where you can park and take the free island shuttle to many destinations. Thank you for a fantastic week! I hope to return...maybe with my husband and daughter. Thank you!!

My wife and I continue to return nearly every year. Accommodations and service are great. Locations likewise. Very near Bar Harbor (5 minutes tops) but not in the noise and crowd. Best rooms are standalone suites, cottages 9, 10 1nd 11 and upstairs in motel. Reserve early because this place is being discovered. And a great value.

First time to Bar Harbor, Maine. Visited with my husband. Researched for over a year and actually booked our vacation around the availability here. Stayed 3 days here after spending 3 days prior in Portland, ME. Upon checking in, David Bowden gave us useful local information without us even asking. Cruise ship schedules, restaurants, tide schedules, points of interest, etc. That info was appreciated and assisted in our enjoyment of the area. Our cabin (#7) was quaint, very clean, perfect for us with the kitchenette AND had a fantastic view with a deck to enjoy! The property is quiet and peaceful. Highly recommended!

We had 2 rooms booked in the motel. They were stunning! Big back porch with chairs to enjoy the view of the cove which was unbelievably close. We were only there 3 short nights, but I can't say enough good things about it. Can't wait to return one day!

We stayed in cottage 11 and it was just perfect. The cottage has been recently updated and everything was super clean. The water view from the front door was beautiful, relaxing and serene. Several nights after dark we sat and watched the stars. The cottage has a small fully equipped kitchen, perfect for fixing a quick breakfast and lunch. We will definitely come back for a visit.

This place is absolutely beautiful, right on the water and the cottage we had (cottage 8) was so clean and nicely updated! It was not even a 5 minute drive to the town of Bar Harbor. It had everything you need in there too. After shopping in town, or exploring Acadia national park it was the perfect place to come back and sit on the deck, watching the tides change, or have coffee and tea in the morning watching the sunrise. People next to us brought their kayak and used that in the lake and others saw an eagle (of course we missed it) I would highly recommend this place. I wouldn't dream of staying anywhere else in Bar Harbor.
