We really enjoyed our stay at Emery's Cottage. Our cottage was clean and neat. It included a private bathroom. The property is on a lake and we enjoyed waking up early and watching the sunrise. It was a great location to slow down from daily life. I hope to be back next summer.

We spent the week of Sept10-17 2016. You couldnt ask for a more centrally located place to tour Bar Harbor, Acadia National Park, and surrounding Lobster villages. The cottage was super clean and contained all we needed. We stayed in 4A. You will appreciate the private shore, grills, and solitude after the hustle and bustle in Bar harbor.

We spent a week at this wonderful retreat. The place was extremely clean, quiet, comfortable, friendly, close to an entrance to Acadia & Bar Harbor. Our cabin did not have a kitchenette but there are grills, picnic tables, & a separate kitchenette for use by all guests. Coffee is available every morning until 10a. Wifi was great. Cell service was...

We visit Embery's cabins every year now, staying for a week. Our latest stay was a pleasant as ever. Exceptionally well kept property and friendly owners. We spend a lot of time in lawn chairs by the water or relaxing on the porch. Wally provides good advice on where to get rent a Kayak and so forth. Nice location away...

We've been coming to Acadia for 45 years now and have tried many types of accommodations, including other cottage colonies, but this was truly a lovely find! Your hosts Carol & Wally are very welcoming and provide just the right amount of attentiveness to your needs and interests, not to mention beautifully kept and appointed cottages. My wife is pretty...

I can't say enough good about our stay at Emery's Cottage. We were in #14, which is back away from the water, but we still had a view. We enjoyed spending our evenings down the shore in the lounge chairs, listening to the waves and watching the sun set. Our biggest surprise was the clean towels every day, they also...

My wife and I stayed in Cottage 2A for a week while we visited Bar Harbor and Acadia N.P. The close proximity to both Bar Harbor with all the local shops and restaurants, and Acadia Visitor Center is perfect. The views from our cottage was excellent. Service was great... fresh towels delivered daily to the cottage, and fresh sheets were...
