We stayed for six nights in a cottage (known as W2). The purpose of our trip was to hike in Acadia National Park. The cottage has an excellent view of Somes Sound from the interior and from the deck. We only prepared breakfast in the cottage, preferring to dine in nearby restaurants. (Our favourite is Red Sky, a pleasant 15 minute walk from the hotel.) We would have tried Xanthus, the hotel's restaurant, but it has a dress code, something we abhor while on vacation. I cannot comment on the hotel and its rooms (and related services) since we did not venture inside other than to check-in and check-out. The grounds surrounding the hotel are beautiful and very well maintained. The cottage was fine although one should not expect it to be a luxurious high-end experience. I am very pleased to report there's no TV and no barbecue. One is not plagued by neighbours catching up on Judge Judy and yelps when hot grease from the barbecue lands on bare skin. Free wi-fi is provided.
