We stayed at Windward Cottages after an recommendation by a friend. We had cottage #2. It had a great view, right on the water. It was nice, clean, and peaceful. My 5 yr old loved exploring the shore at low-tide. It is located close to Bar Harbor, but on the other side of the island away from the hustle and bustle. We had a great time in Acadia/Mt Dessert Island and the Schoodic Pennisula. We had a great experience, I would recommend this place to everyone! We are planning to come back, possibly in the fall, 2 yrs from now. We went canoeing and a seal popped his head up, watching us.
