The motel is an older property but well maintained, painted a bright sunny yellow. The cottage we rented was very spacious, king bed, large bath,with a shower stall and kitchen. The only drawback in the kitchen was the minifridge. It was quiet and we enjoyed the two night stay.

Very nice motel. The cottages are cute but we stayed in motel room. Coffee is available in the morning. No breakfast. The owners are very nice. Close to Acadia and Bar Harbor, about 10 minutes away. The Oceanarium is a half mile away.

We stayed in a cottage for 4 nights, and I can't say enough good things about this place! First, it was spotless...and kept in excellent shape! There was dinnerware and cookware in the kitchenette, although we didn't use it. A microwave, small fridge, and a built in 2 burner range. A small table for 2 in the kitchen area. Bathroom... More

The owners are on-site, warmly greet everyone and are ready to help. Stayed in a motel unit that had AC but it was a bit chilly so turned on the heat. Both... More

Large, clean rooms with eclectic decorating. Always had nice hot water and clean towels plus the innkeeper was so helpful with directions and suggestions. Beds were comfortable too. Would stay there again, especially since the prices are so reasonable compared to downtown Bar Harbor.

We found the motel right on hwy 3. We didn't have a reservation. Fortunately, there were still rooms available for the 3 nights we wanted to stay. During check-in, the owner was very nice and helpful. He showed us the motel room and also let us peek into various cottages. They are all different. He told us he built it... More

I came there with my wife and my 3 little boys for 2 nights. They loved the swimming pool, we loved our charming room, and mosquitoes loved our barbecue! We had a great stay in this hotel very well located on this wonderful island.

We were taking a road trip through New England and needed a place to stay in or near Bar Harbor for a couple nights. We lucked out and were able to call and get a cottage with king bed just a few hours before we drove into Mount Desert Island. The cottages were easy to find on Route 3 once... More

My wife and I stayed two days and had a wonderful time. Great location and affordable. Our room was well appointed and would definitely stay again. Owners pay special attention to your needs and keep things very clean. Having a laundry on site was a great surprise.
