We rented a small single cottage with one queen size bed. I have to say that earlier reviewers were accurate about the tiny bathroom and kitchenette but we loved it. The bed was extremely comfortable and it was very quiet by about 9:00. After a full day at Acadia hiking or a day in Bar Harbor shopping and going out...

We just came back from our third vacation in Bar Harbor. We have stayed at Bay Meadows Cottages twice and we were very happy there. We stayed in a quaint cottage. Low tide was a nice time to hike along the rocky beach. The people are friendly and helpful. We will stay there again.

This is our second year in a row to rent the Ranch house at Bay Meadow. We have been coming to Bar Harbor for several years staying at another set of cottages on Route 3. I got tired of lugging my portable microwave every year plus the a/c didn't work so well so we decided to upgrade. We like to...

A friend and I were fortunate to be able to reserve one of the cabins at Bay Meadow at the very last minute this past week. I was very pleased with everything about our short stay. The cabin was exactly what I wanted and expected: reminded me of places I stayed as a kid with my parents back in the...

Pros: beds were comfy, water pressure was great, staff is terrific & friendly, cute location. Cons: shower was so small it was almost unusable. it was not more than 2'x2'. bumped my elbows just trying to...

I stayed here with a friend for two nights.We chose this place based on location, and more importantly, price ($115/nt). When we got there, we were a little surprised at the size of the place - we knew that it'll be small, but we couldn't have imagined that it'll be THIS small. I know closets that are bigger than the...

Please read all of the POOR reviews because they are correct. The picture is very decieving!! The "Cottages" are very small, old, poorly supplied and i would not call a sink+toaster a kitchenette... The bathroom was approx 6' x 5' and the shower was a dirty little plastic cube. Also, we tried to cancel because of Huricane Irene but they...

Is it small? Yes, but clean and tidy. The cottages were built in the 1930's and not meant to be luxury hotels. Think lake cottage, but with plumbing. The kitchenette was small, but quite serviceable, thus the term "kitchenette." There was a high shelf to store non-perishables, a small dorm-style refrigerator, a sink, and a two burner hot plate. Silverware...

The description on the web site shows quaint cottages and a nice shore line. The cottages were built in the 1930's and it looks like the bathrooms and "Kitchenettes were an afterthought. There are no closets or clothes racks, the shower is a plastic box with exposed plumbing, the cottages are very small the bath room is barely large enough...

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
