this is for Edgewater Motel which is located outside of town in a quiet area near hamilton pond and located on bay waterfront. You have a choice of motel, cottage, or apartment. There were just two of us, but we opted for the apartment over a garage. This was spacious -- comfy king beds, nice bathroom, two new couches in...

Didn't know where to stay on our trip to Bar Harbor so I checked Trip Advisor & quickly found Edgewater. I like to stay at "mom & pop" places. This is part small hotel & part cottages. The property is right on the water, very beautiful & peaceful. Our room was very clean, updated, & comfortable. And the price very...

Great accommodations right on the water, cottages and a cozy motel!! The views and ambience are right on the mark. The owners/innkeepers are friendly and helpful. The rates are very affordable and an unbelievable value!! It's the best place to stay in and around Bar Harbor.

We checked in, Jayne was not only friendly, but had great tips on where to go, eat, and things to do. Our room in the motel had kitchen, king size bed, deck facing the ocean, and a fireplace, for an extremely reasonable price. We stayed 5 days, will stay there anytime we visit the area again. *Make sure you get...

We stayed at one of the second floor cabins at the very edge of the property, bounded by a forest, with a nice little balcony for viewing the cove. The furnishings in our room were a little grandmotherly but it was roomy, clean and comfortable. And that balcony was just so peaceful with lapping waves and a billion stars winking...

The view is amazing. After a 9 hour drive to Maine (with a toddler no less) this was a little slice of heaven. It was so calm, beautiful, quiet, and tranquil. I couldn't sing the praises louder. The room was pretty large and spacious even though we had a pack n' play (provided by the hotel with sweet baby bedding)....

This is one of the most beautiful, relaxing places I've ever had the pleasure to visit. My wife and I have the same birthday and we go away for a few days every year to celebrate. We often stay locally (New England) and had never been to Bar Harbor. What a find! This place is right on the water (our...

I am so pleased to be able to recommend this motel. My husband and I stayed in one of the cottages and what a treat to come back after a long day of hiking the nearby Acadia National Park. We arrived shortly before the tourist season and literally felt as though we had the entire island to ourselves. The cottage...

Cozy place where we felt very welcome, the owners were very competent and informed us about the best places to visit in Acadia Park. We had the most beautiful water view from our cottage and porch. Quiet and peaceful area. We would definitely stay here again

We have been traveling to Bar Harbor for years and have been staying in the same place for the last several years. Because our "regular" place was not available this year we opted to stay at The Edgewater based on Tripadvisor reviews. What a find! I hesitate to even share it for fear it will become too difficult to book....
