Stayed here two nights while visiting Acadia National Park, only because we had booked prior to arrival. We had a motel room with two queen beds. It was extremely difficult to move in the room with a small space in heater in one corner, and a larger fan/ air conditioner with large pipe vented to outside (so it couldn't be... More

We stayed one night in a room over the office. The room was both spartan and charming at the same time. It had been cleaned well with attention to detail. We sat out front on the porch and enjoyed the grounds. Although during our trip we stayed at properties costing three and four times as much, we were not disappointed... More

The motel rooms were spartan and bathroom and shower tiny. The room was very clean however. The shower worked, the beds were acceptable, and the wi-fi worked. No complaints. It did have a working dehumidifier which also was a A/C unit and worked.

Stayed for 1 night while passing through the area. Cabin had more than enough room for 2 adults, it's older, but everything is clean & in good condition. Bathroom was a bit small but was fine. TV and wifi both worked fine.

We are staying at the Isleview and totally enjoying having a place so accessible to the sights in the Bar Harbor area. It is a short distance to Bar Harbor and Acadia National Park> The cabins are the simple older seaside cabins with the knotty pine and decorated with nautical themes. There is a very nice gas grill available if... More

We so appreciate folks that read what they are booking in advance, as you said, no surprises. We are happy to hear the web site is pleasing and easy to use. The staff has worked long and hard this summer and is pretty weary with the long hours so they truly appreciate seeing the good reviews from customers, thank you! More

My husband and I stayed here on a romantic getaway last week. To be honest, we chose it primarily for its cheapness and good reviews, and we weren't disappointed. It was, in fact, very cheap (we got a budget room for $64) and when we arrived, they upgraded us to a cottage for free (without us asking) since 3 of... More

I had a great time at this cottage. It was clean, perfectly sized, has all modern amenities, and is a convenient drive to Bar Harbor/Acadia. The cottage is near the main road, but isn't noisy at all..
