The title is the one thing to keep in mind. Cabins are seasonal, bare-bones accommodations, and are intended to be a place to hang your hat and sleep while in the area.
That said, Acadia Gateway provides simple accommodations. Our cabin shared a building with a second cabin, and it was around 160 square feet. No phone or alarm clock. The accommodations are pet-friendly, and that was a major consideration in booking here. There is plenty of space to walk dogs, and the cabins are very clean. Note: when someone enters or exits the adjoining cabin, you will hear them, but the wall between the cabins is solid enough to buffer interior noises.
Just a couple of gripes. There are TVs in each room, but they are placed on a TV shelf, meaning that you cannot easily lay in bed and see the TV. This is OK if you are only chilling for an hour or so late at night, but if you are rained in all day, this will definitely not be the place for you. And while I don't expect luxury linens, some new pillows with a little thickness would help the bed seem more comfortable and make TV watching in bed much better. An extra pillow in the room might help as well.
The owners are extremely helpful in all ways. I really wanted to like this place better. Like I said, a cabin in a vacation area is really just supposed to be a place to crash at night, and the bed was just not up to par. Given that fact, I would not recommend this hotel to a friend; I'd toss it out there for consideration only.
