My husband and I, and our little dog, had a wonderful time staying at the Birches Cottage. Our cottage was clean and cozy, and we instantly felt like home. Everything was well maintained and well appointed, and it felt more like a small house than what I thought a cottage would be like. The grounds are beautiful - we enjoyed...

I "had" to get away in May and always wanted to see the Acadia region of Maine. Lucked out in finding this wonderful spot to rent for a few days off season. The small cottage (log cabin design) was extremely well appointed with LL Bean bedding and furnishings, stone fireplace, quaint kitchenette that provides a view to the shoreline and...

Right along the shores of Maine's Eggemoggin Reach, it would be difficult to find a lovelier stretch of shoreline. In the extended Littlefield family forever, the cabins discretely placed around the property, along the shore and in the woods, give one a sense of a time gone by. The cabins are simple but spacious and well maintained and feel a...

My husband and I stayed at Ledges cottage and it was the most relaxing time of our trip. When we walked down the rock lined path to enter the front door we could not have imagined a more perfect place to stay.....warm, charming, clean, quaint, and just as a Maine cottage should be. My husband commented, "Wouldn't you like to...

A friend and I recently stayed in Ledges cottage and loved our time there. The staff were so kind and professional, and everything was incredibly well organized. They had given me a lot of details and help over the phone, and sure enough when we arrived at night everything was waiting for us perfectly as we'd been told. The cottage...

Thank-you for taking your time to write your commentary. Yes, Ledges Cottage is beautifully tucked between the wooded areas and the shore of East Penobscot Bay. The king-sized bed is a new pillow top variety and is perfect for real relaxation. We often have honeymooners here because of Ledge's location and size. Guests are charmed by its authenticity and the...

Gathered family from Oregon and Massachusetts to celebrate my parent's 50th at Oakland House in late June. Really couldn't have asked for a better experience all the way around! As previous folks have mentioned, it is out of the way but isolated, it is not. New in 2012 is free wifi for each cottage and while it's not up to...

We have been welcoming families...now for 125 years. My husband, his parents, their parents and their parents set the stage for these wonderful family reunions. We love these events and the memories that are made for families that are often spread over all parts of the world. And, we would eagerly welcome new families who are seeking just the kind...

Went there with the family in early July - I'm still mentally there. The two cabins we were in were great, the Westerly (right on the water near the stairs) and the Grindstone (up the hill). The Westerly is more up-to-date but both are still Maine-style housekeeping cottages. Loved the fireplace in both. The resort is secluded enough on the...

Thank-you for taking your time to write a review. It sounds like your heart never left. So many people feel the same, I guess that is why we have 5 generations of some families returning year after year. We provide a sophisticated rusticity in each of the cottages...all different in design but for sure with beautiful, fresh linens and all...

We stayed at the Oakland House during the last week of June. The cottage we rented was very clean, very well kept, and right on the water. The area on the Blue Hill peninsula is stunning, when the sun is out. We enjoyed buying lobster right out of the lobster man's garage (although it would have been nice if the...

My husband Jim was quite ill and we actually closed the business at the end of 2008. But in 2009 he decided that he'd like to rent just a few of the cottages...on a very different basis...self-serve housekeeping. Many of our long time guests were so happy that we still had cottages that they were happy to change the nature...

It is remarkable that the Littlefield family have been devoted stewards to Oakland House Seaside Resort and its beautiful environs since 1889. They have continued to uphold a long tradition of warmth and hospitality. Sally and Jim's dedicated care of Oakland Resort and its guests is apparent -- from tending sweeping flower beds at the main house (cheerily welcoming all)...

Thank-you for taking your time to write. We love to have folks stay for awhile with us here. This is a sort of ageless destination having been in the same family since the land was granted by King George of England in 1767. The location is stunning with the setting sun sinking over the Bay and disappearing behind the distant...

The coast of Maine has a beauty all its own and the Oakland House displays it like none other. The best part is the location. It's remote, but not so remote that you feel detatched from everything. Fifteen minutes and you can be in Blue Hill and in an hour and a half you can be at Acadia National Park....

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Distinctive and Authentic! This beautiful coastal cottage colony has been welcoming guests since 1889 and has been operated by the same family ever since. With 60 blissfully private acres of coastal woodland trails, beaches, and fields in which to play and dream it's easy to feel like a child again. Ten cottages of rustic sophistication have one or two bedrooms, full baths, living rooms with fireplaces, comfortable furnishings, and full kitchens or kitchenettes. Housekeeping services on a daily basis in season. Two night minimum with a one-week stay being the most economical. Arrive any day, depart any day. We welcome you, your family, and your friends. Perfect for honeymoons, singles and groups events. We welcome a well-behaved dog in Birches Cottage. Other cottages are pet-free and non-smoking, thank you. Open from mid-April through mid-October. ... more   less
