“Very Nice”
Reviewed 9 November 2007

Very nice to stay at Eden Village in the Motel. We were off the busy road, with nature all around. But we were still conveniently located to every where we wanted to go. The room was cozy with nice easy chairs to relax in at the end of the day. It was a perfect place to end our busy days of site seeing.
The location of Eden Village makes it easy to get off the island for shopping but also drive further into Mount Desert Island to visit all the natural and tourist sites.

My husband and I have stayed at Eden Village several times.
We have stayed in Cabin #1 every other time except this
last time. Due to our own last minute change in plans, we
could not get reservations for Labor Day weekend in a cabin,
but the owners were nice enough to help us get into one of
the motel rooms. It was comfortable. Eden Village is not for
those who want 4 star hotel accomodations, but those of us who
want to get away from the hussle and noise of the city, Bar Harbor
is a wonderful place. Eden Village is located between our favorite
Lobster Pound, Trenton Bridge where we get our dinner and
and Acadia National Park, where we visit nearly every day.
We like the idea of being left alone to do our own thing. The
fireplace is a plus. The kitchen is adequate for breakfast.
Yes, the place could use some updates, but nothing that would
prevent us from going back again. We have always enjoyed our
stay at Eden Village and plan to return next fall.

  • Liked — quiet place off season. location for us is great. comfortable and adequate.loved fireplace& screen room
  • Disliked — small,outdated rooms, bathroom small, lighting poor

I read reviews on Trip Advisor to find this place. I'm so glad I did! The rates were very reasonable. The cottages were just wonderful! We loved eating breakfast on our little screened in porch every morning. We hiked the trails in the back and found some deer tracks. We enjoyed sitting on the swing in front of the pond and commiserating with the ducks. The location is nice, too, easy to get to all of the places we wanted to visit on the island. We will totally stay there again.

  • Liked — The comfy cottages. Fireplaces, the little kitchenettes.

Our stay at Eden Village was excellent! We stayed in a cottage which we found totally delightful and met all our needs. They are attractively decorated, extremely clean and very cozy. We would definitely come back!

Loved this place ! Management was very friendly and in tune with our needs . Bar Harbor has always been our "getaway" place and I can not believe we haven't stayed at Eden village before. This was my families first stay and I must say a very rewarding one . Quiet ( set back off the road) very clean and near to everything Bar Harbor has to offer . Especially loved the rear deck overlooking the mountains . The pond offered a nice view also and some fun for the young at heart to paddle boat around in. My family and I stayed in one of their family motel units . Really enjoyed the stay . Would like to keep this place a secret( just for me ) but that wouldn't be fair to the hard work these folks have put into this Eden .

We stayed here for 3 nights in Sept, and was pleasantly surprised. The room was very clean which to me that is the most important thing. The location was close to Acadia NP and the town of Bar Harbor. The decor of the room could use a little updating, but since we don't really spend much time in the room other that to sleep and shower, it's not that big of a deal.

The guy at the desk wasn't overly friendly, but check in/out was fast and painless. We did have problems with the heat not working the first night which took about 2 hours before anyone would believe us that is wasn't working, but once he came out to fix it, it worked great.

Budgetwise, this it a great place to stay.

The electronics that control the motel heating system are set not to activate if the outside temperature is above 72 degrees F. After making an adjustment the heat worked fine.
This person booked our most economical room using Orbitz. For those requiring upgraded accommodations I suggest contacting us directly so we can explain our various options.

The place was nice and quiet, kept clean. The cottage we stayed was also in good shape. Location was pretty good, not too far from the park entrance and Bar Harbor. The pond is beautiful.
But the owner is not friendly and/or nice. They have signs posted all over the place. Do not leave lights on, tuck the shower curtain to prevent water falling outside, make sure the kitchen inventory is all there when you check in, park here only, do not park here, don't do this, don't do that, etc, blah, blah, blah. I was sick of so many signs and warnings!!. This was VACATION!.
Plus his attitude was bad, specially towards women. We saw him talking very friendly with the 'guys". I recommend this place for families but it you are a woman traveling with your sister, friend, cousin, (woman), etc. DONT GO THERE!!.. There are many places around where you can find similar acommodations.
We were kind of glad to go home. Not a friendly atmosphere at all!!. His wife was friendly but he should not be in the business of greeting people. Maybe she should work in the office all the time and he should just take care of the maintenance around the place.

This couple stayed in our honeymoon/special occasion cottage. Due to it's location (close to the pond) special parking instructions are given so no one accidentally drives over a septic tank in route to their cottage. Our entire check in process generally takes about 5 minutes. We want to make sure that people who have not stayed in a rental cottage before are familiar with the housekeeping procedures that come with their rental. For the safety and convenience of our guests we also take this opportunity to explain other particulars about our grounds. I have gone through the same process thousands of times over the years. Everyone is explained the same facts and in the same manner about our cottages and grounds. I can not remember any other person (man or women) being offended by this procedure. I do not remember speaking with these ladies after they checked in. I'm sure I said hi or waved to them in passing during the week they stayed. It's a shame but this women simply OVERREACTED and in doing so not only upset herself but I'm sure also upset her companion. Most people that stay in this particular cottage have chosen it because they want as much privacy as possible. For that reason we will not needlessly disturb them but certainly do not go out of our way to avoid them. If she wanted to have a friendly conversation I would have been more than happy to oblige her.
The personal comments made by this person are untrue, inappropriate and insulting.


There are a few small signs posted in a cottage. They are posted as a convenience and by no means are meant to annoy a guest. Most of these signs are manufactured by a company called Project Planet. This is an environmentally conscience company that supplies these signs to the lodging industry. (example-To help us conserve energy Please turn off lights when away) They are very tastefully designed and state certain facts about how much energy can be saved and as a result pollution eliminated by considering various conservation practices. You will find these signs displayed in many lodging facilities across the country that are concerned about our environment. We've had them in place for about 5 years. This is the 1st person that was offended by their presence. She says Eden Village is nice and quiet, clean, well kept and in a good location. Then she OVERREACTS again and lets a couple of signs negatively affect her vacation.
