We spent the weekend there. It was our first time at Bar Harbor Cottages. Certainly won't be our last!
As soon as we walked in the door Friday, Laura made us feel right at home. She was very friendly, personable, knowledgeable of the area, fun to talk with, and eager to help. We deeply appreciated that. We were both extremely impressed with her, and probably the first thing we'll talk about when people ask how our weekend was is how great she was and how welcome she made us feel! She made an absolutely wonderful impression with us!
Just a cute, nice, comfy place. It was very quiet and peaceful. Nice setup. Perfect for our needs. 5 minutes from the entrance to Acadia National Park. A few more minutes past that and you're in downtown Bar Harbor. Great location! Plus, you get to be in Bar Harbor during peak season without paying Bar Harbor peak season hotel prices, which are pretty expensive.
We loved the cottages and will highly recommend them to any of our friends who want to spend time in the Bar Harbor area. We certainly wish we could've stayed longer. There's so much we wanted to do!
We'll definitely be back, and we hope Laura will still be there to greet us! Thank you very much!
