We are in the midst of a week long stay in mid August. We are staying in cottage 12, which is perfect for as many as 7 people. The cottage is clean and comfortable, with a nice sitting area with a wood burning (gas) stove, which was great on the cool mornings. There's a TV with basic cable. The beds are comfortable, the bathroom is clean and functional and the kitchen was great for making a meal before starting out for the day.
It's located about 15 minutes from downtown Bar Harbor, 10 minutes to the Hull's Cove entrance of Acadia National Park. We haven't tried the Traveling Lobster next door yet but plan to. I'll update when we do.
Yvonne and Dave are very welcoming and accommodating. The cottages are all very cute and worth the money. My one very minor gripe is that the internet wifi has been spotty at best. Dave explained he'd been having issues with the provider and was working on getting it sorted out. Not a huge deal but it would be nice to have. I definitely plan on returning on my next trip to Acadia.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Rose Eden is a special place that is nestled in the woods away from the downtown hustle but near Acadia Park and within 5 minutes of an ocean front beach. We maintain a family atmosphere with a small playground and picnic, barbeque and fire pit areas (barbeque grilles are available for your use). There is a Lobster take out business on site where you can buy lobsters to cook yourself or a lobster dinner to eat at your cottage or in one of the picnic areas. Locally processed wines and beer can be purchased next door to compliment the lobster dinners. Rose Eden is a perfect place for a group to gather for a family reunion or a family to relax after enjoying the many things to do and see in this special place on the coast of Maine. ... more less
