Reviewed 3 August 2013

First, you need to understand what you're signing up for... This is not a 5-star, or even 3-star hotel. It's a rustic cottage on the Maine coast, and it's PERFECT! The cottages are set up nicely, very clean and comfortable. The hostess was very personable and greeted me by my first name as I walked through the door. She was very knowledgeable of the area and had several suggestions seeing that we were only in the area for 2 days. Everything you needed was close at hand in the barn. It was a wonderful experience!

Room Tip: These cottages are across the road from the cove, not on the water. For our purposes, that was fine...

Really enjoyed our stay here with our three children. Clean, space to play, convenient to all activities, especially Acadia. You must go understanding these are rustic Maine cottages. That is part of the charm. Plus--they rent nightly, not just weekly. Minus--no shore access. This did not prove to be a big issue for us.

Our stay at Bar Harbor Cottages & Suites was really nice. Simple & clean.
Really quiet at night. I loved all the flowers they planted which made it more unique from all the other cottage rentals down the street. Fresh linens and all the items you needed for a meal at home. It made you feel like you were taking a step out of your busy day-to-day life and just relaxing. Laura at the front desk was great! She always was available and offered information and additional items if needed (they have a cute barn where it is all stored for you to take).
The only item that you want to consider is that they do not have beach access which isn't a huge issue as most of the time you will want to venture into Bar Harbor (the port) or Acadia Park.

I would go back.

Room Tip: Cabin 12 is set back from them all which makes it feel more private.

My husband and I recently spent 2 nights at Bar Harbor Cottages. We stayed in cottage 7 which was cozy and perfect for the 2 of us. We especially enjoyed the porch in the morning. Laura was absolutely fabulous! She had good suggestions for dinner and specific things to see in a short period of time. Laura always had a smile and handled requests for extra pillows and a hair dryer quickly. We would recommend Bar Harbor Cottages to anyone visiting the area.

Our family had a great stay at the Bar Harbor Cottages! It was great to have our own little cottage- close to the water, close to town and lots of activities and places to explore. Kathy the owner gave us great travel information and was really helpful, even made great suggestions for rainy day activities. Our #12 cottage was clean and lovely. We loved it and can't wait to come back!

Bar Harbor Cottages and Suites is a great place! My husband and I stayed 3 nights in a one bedroom cottage and found it to be cozy and private, but convenient to Bar Harbor and Acadia National Park. We have been to Bar Harbor three other times before and have always stayed at a bed and breakfast. However, we have always found that privacy is limited at a bed and breakfast.
I truly recommend Bar Harbor Cottages and Suites for privacy, convenience, and value. The amenities are boundless too. I really liked the optional self-service for linens, bedding, etc. In fact, the next time we are in Bar Harbor, we will stay at one of Bar Harbor Cottages and Suites' two bedroom accommodations. Owner Kathy Combs and Resident Manager Laura [--] are a delight. They were very helpful, knew all about the island, and made our stay memorable. Thank You Very Much!

Went up to the Bar Harbor / Acadia area for an extended weekend and stayed at the Bar Harbor Cottages and Suites. The cottage grounds were well maintained. The cottages themselves are classic Maine cottages with several competitors within eye-shot. Our cottage (#3) is older but it is obvious the owner/manager goes to great lengths to maintain its cleanliness. The price was a bit more than others in the area but since this was a last minute vacation and the other cottages had "No Vacancy" we made our choice here. It was a great decision.

Room Tip: Cottages #2 and #3 are closest to the road (albeit very quiet road) and offers a distant ocean view.
