Nice location, close to Acadia and downtown Bar Harbor. We enjoyed the bay across the street but the cottages, well let's just say they have a lot of potential and with a few upgrades could be really nice. The first to get rid of the musty smell! We were not alone we chatted with others who also dealt with the...

Our family of 4 stayed in the Ranch House the week of July 5th,2014. We had plenty of room and enjoyed the cleanliness of the house. We were so grateful to the owners who were so helpful at every turn. We were able to grill out with their lobster pots and have a fabulous feast on the deck of the...

Just stayed here for 5 nights. I like these cottages because they are off the main drag and it's very quiet. The main road has a ton of traffic with trucks, buses, and RV's so it is loud. The cottages were just that, a cottage. If your expecting 5 star then you need to go elsewhere and pay the price....

We have stayed in those cottages for 2 nights (as have paid in advance), first half of September and after having read the comments below, we've been quite disappointed with the standard of the place. The cottages were tiny, with oldfashioned, not very clean bathroom and kitchen. It is true, that they are located by the bay which is quite...

Bay Meadow is very close to Acadia National Park. It is very convenient to go to the mountain and loop road from here. Also Bar Harbor downtown is near by, so after the dinner in downtown, it is very short drive to reach the cottage and relax. I felt home at this cottage and didnt feel congusted inside it. It...

We stayed at the ranch house during the week of July 6-13, 2013. The house was very comfortable and clean. It was only a 10-minute drive to Acadia National Park and about 15 minutes to the grocery store. The house had everything we needed, including linens, extra blankets and pillows, and towels. There was a newly built deck with comfortable...

We landed up here with 4 other families so we took five cottages over here. All of us had nice experience. Cottages are well maintained , nicely equipped and clean. This place is nicely located as well. If you are planning to visit Acadia and need a balance between cost and comfort, this one is recommended.

Conveniently located in Bar Harbor, the cottages are cozy, neat and comfortable. The kitchenette is a savior in case of emergencies like reheating food, refrigerating, etc. We kind of loved the cute little bathroom. It is a perfect stay after a long day at the Acadia National Park. I have had an additional good experience with them. Forgot two books...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Bay Meadow Cottages offer classic Maine cottages on Mount Desert Island. Our bright white cottages are gathered on a grassy meadow looking out at the tranquil bay in Salsbury Cove, part of Bar Harbor's popular Frenchman's Bay. Our 14 classic housekeeping cottages are tidy and comfortable with kitchenettes and private baths, ideal for a couple of nights or an entire week in the Bar Harbor region. Our setting is quiet, with private shore access for our guests. Chairs, picnic tables and fire pits grace our lawns, and provide a pleasant setting to enjoy your morning coffee or roast some marshmallows and reflect on your day's adventures. Families enjoy our cottages, especially the 2 bedroom cottages that offer more space for everyone and beautiful views of the cove. Couples enjoy our one room cottages with a private bath, cable TV, kitchenette, mini-fridge, coffee maker, microwave and electric cook top. A BBQ area with gas grills is available if you would like to cookout. We provide free Wi-Fi on the property so you can stay in touch while you enjoy your getaway to Bar Harbor.Our cottages are an easy 5 minutes to Acadia National Park gates and just 10 minutes from Bar Harbor's downtown restaurants, shops, and tours. Guests are welcome to bring their own kayak or canoe to launch right from our shore access. Don't forget bikes to tour the 45-miles of carriage roads of Acadia National Park and surrounding area. Remember the binoculars for spotting bald eagles, seals and wildlife while you are out exploring. Bay Meadow Cottages is convenient to all of Mount Desert Island's attractions, just a few miles after you cross the Trenton Bridge on quiet Old Bar Harbor Road, just beyond the Mount Desert Island Biological Laboratory. We are technically in Bar Harbor and more specifically in the small village of Salsbury Cove, a hamlet of Bar Harbor.Our Innkeeper and a friendly staff are on premise to welcome you, and offer information on things to see and do on Mount Desert Island. ... more   less
