We had a very small two room plus bathroom cottage #6. The bedroom had two twin beds which was great for our kids, but it was very hot until it cooled down at night. The AC didn't reach the room, and there was no fan. We loved eating out at the picnic table under the crab apple tree. We only...

We appreciate you taking the time to review us on TripAdvisor. We're so pleased to hear that you enjoyed your stay with us in our cute and quaint traditional Maine cottage-- especially the screened porch and eating on the picnic table under the apple tree. As you experienced, Maine summers can get into the 90's, which is why every cottage...

We enjoyed our stay at this beautiful property. The kids were able to run around in the grass next to our cottage (#12). We were able to borrow a grill from the "barn" and cookout one night. Very close to Acadia NP visitor center. Very pleased with our stay, highly recommended!

We chose a two bedroom, sofa bed with kitchenette for our stay. This property has several adorable housekeeping cottages, grouped together higgly-piggly, in a convenient location from which to explore MDI. All of the cottages appeared in good repair, some having screened porches. The grounds are landscaped nicely and have a view of the bay across the road, but no...

Charming old-style cottages. We stuffed four adults and all our traveling stuff in a 2 BR w/sofa bed. Amazingly, even the sofa bed was comfortable (although not plushy comfy. Let's be honest.). We did minor cooking (underline minor) and charcoal grills are supplied if you want to grill A storage barn lets you supply yourself with needed towels etc. After...

We had never stayed in cottages before and found them somewhat cramped. We found the cottage clean and the staff very friendly and helpful. The grounds are very nicely kept with flowers everywhere. We had a porch which was very nice for our morning coffee.

We arrived at Bar Harbor Cottages on Friday afternoon. We checked in and the manger was as sweet as can be and extremely knowledgeable about the island. She also advised us, that there was a "supply barn" on the property for any extras we may need at no charge. The supplies ranged from tabletop grills, silverware/dinnerware, extra towels, ashtrays, soap,...

Very close to the entrance of Acadia. Easy drive into town. Cottage was cheerful and clean. The kitchen had all the basic pans and utensils that one may need. I would recommend that they buy Teflon - non stick frying pans for the cottages. The aluminum frying pan was hard to cook in.

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
