Edgewater Motel & Cottages

Reviewed 18 June 2014

We spent three nights at Edgewater in late May and had a wonderful time. Dave was most helpful with local area information, and the entire family and staff were very nice. We had Cottage 11 which had a nice set up with everything we needed. The heat lamp in the spacious bathroom was a big plus as it was still cool. Our cabin and the grounds were immaculate. Pride of ownership was evident all around the property. The location was perfect for visiting Acadia National Park and the entire "down east" area. Located off the main road on Old Bar Harbor Rd., there was very little traffic. We were a couple miles from the park entrance and three or four from the town of Bar Harbor. We enjoyed the outdoor seating overlooking Salisbury Cove on Frenchman's Bay. The on site laundry was a plus for us as we were on a road trip. I can understand why this property has numerous repeat guests. If we find our way back to the area from Colorado again we will be sure to enjoy another stay!

Room Tip: We enjoyed cabin 11--the last one to one side of the property. A short walk from parking, but the e...

We loved our stay in one of Edgewater's charming cottages. The cottage was clean and cozy, clearly well cared for. The bed was delightfully comfortable and I loved the shower quality! We cooked in the little kitchinette each evening and found the cabinets stocked with everything we could need to help in preparing a special meal for two. The chairs on the deck were comfy enough to sit in for hours of reading and enjoying the lovely view of the water. The location was great- a quick ride to Bar Harbor center and easy routes to all Acadia points. What spectacular hikes! What a great place to stay! Perfect.

Came across this location my searching the internet several months before our trip. All I can say is the internet does not do it justice. I was like a little kid when we arrived and check in. Our room is absolutely wonderful, view is fantastic, the room is large and is the cleanest I have ever come across. Who never they have doing the carpentry and up keep on the rooms and the whole facility has done an outstanding job. The owners are truly friendly and pleasant to converse with. There are a large variety of dining choices in very close vicinity of the Inn. If planning a trip to Bar Harbor do not waste time looking for a place to stay. Anyone would be crazy and highly disappointed by not staying at the Edgewater.

We found this wonderful place on the internet and have been coming back EVERY year since. We have stayed in the seaview, hayloft and numerous cabins. All come complete with all the amenities of home. The location is beautiful and close to everything for adults and kids alike and the prices for the area can't be beat. David and Jayne along with Deliah and Darby their cats greet you and make you feel right at home as soon as you arrive. We will go again for next year but have to say hopefully not in 2016 as me turning 50 hope to do so in Aruba. Thanks all for another great long weekend.

Room Tip: We love the hayloft it's put to the side and quiet and right on the ocean though we have never h...

We stayed two nights here; this is a beautiful location on a small bay with very nicely-kept grounds. The cottages were all booked so we got motel rooms. These rooms are spacious and have been very recently renovated and are in beautiful condition; new carpet etc. There's a small back deck with chairs to enjoy the view. The A/C unit has a remote control. The staff were very friendly and housekeeping did a great job.

There's just one flaw: The connecting doors to the next room are cheap, with significant cracks top and bottom. I could hear my neighbors every time they talked, coughed, opened a dresser drawer, etc. Fortunately they were very quiet (as I tried to be), but if they had been talking loud or watching TV late or early it would have really been bad.

Haven't even left yet, but so pleased that I want to write my review! We came for the cabins, but needed two beds in our room. So the owner recommended their little motel on the same property. What a surprise! The room (#21) has been completely redone. New carpet, new paint, bed coverings . . . two sink "get ready" areas, a little fridge, two recliners, a deck, and the most amazing view of the Bay out the window. Easy to hop right out to the beach and walk around. Spent most of the day sitting in the Adirondack chairs just taking in the view.

The only consideration for sensitive sleepers is that you can hear guests above you and through the double adjoining doors. But luckily our neighbors were quiet and we passed a very peaceful night.

I'd stay here again in a hot minute.

Room Tip: Don't overlook the little motel! Fantastic views. Great views from all the cabins, too.

My girlfriends and I rented the Hay Loft Suite for Memorial Day weekend and we were not disappointed. Clean, bright, well cared for, excellent location. We hiked Cadillac and were well rested and comfortable in the cottage, Great kitchen facilities as well. We appreciated that the owners waited up for us to arrive. We will be back!

Room Tip: The Hay Loft suite is near the main cottages but far enough away to be very private.
