My wife and I stayed here in early October, just after the gov't shutdown closed Acadia N.P. We asked for a cabin, because we craved quiet after hearing our neighbors in other lodgings. Ours was a remodeled 1930's tourist cabin, well away from the highway, with a comfortable bed, a fridge and microwave, a TV, and a very basic but clean and functional bathroom (shower, no tub.) It was cool that night, so we turned up the modern Rinnai heater, which worked great. They offer good coffee and snacks in the office in the morning. This is a no-frills place, but very well maintained and run. We were comfortable, slept well, and felt welcome. That's what I look for in a lodging.
We walked some of the local roads after arriving. The road the cabins are built along was Highway 1 until it was relocated. Now it's on the back of the property. This is a beautiful part of Maine, without the intense tourism further south. We had a great Lobster dinner and egg breakfast at The Bluebird Ranch, in Machias. If we ever return to Maine, we'll put the Blueberry Patch on our list.
