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... More

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... More

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.

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... More

Quiet, peaceful with friendly hosts. Small in space but large in comfort! Nice clean cottage with a spectacular view. We watched the sunset on the bay every night, and enjoyed our little porch. Fresh coffee every morning along with ice, laundry facilities and kitchen space located by the smaller cottages. Close enough to town and Acadia National Park.
