It took 15 minutes to get to Acadia, but for the price was perfect for us. Loved the knotty pine paneling, desk, rocking chairs and fact it had a mini kitchen are. On my wish list would have been a little freezer in the mini frig, for our ice, but other than that, it was nice to have a little frig, coffee make and microwave. The shower was a little off, but the room with two beds was a nice size. The big plus, both my sister and I found these to be the most comfortable beds and softest blankets of our trip. We slept really, really well. Very convenient to have parking right next to the cottages. I do wish they had a rail on one side of the front door, on the outside, for those of us with mobility issues, but other then that, it was a very nice place to stay in and very clean.

Room Tip: Cottage #2 was a good choice

We were delayed getting there and arrived after the office closed and could not see the whole property. The individual cottages looked nice. We stayed in the motel units. The staff was great and left us a key and instructions in their after hour box. The showers and and accommodations were great and clean. The only small glitch was the heater/AC. A little noisy, but after I figured out the unit, it was fine.

Thank you for your review. We are glad the motel room was clean and comfortable. The a/c units in these rooms are rather unique!

I stayed in one of the cottages. It was small but well formed. Everything was very clean and the bed was comfortable. I heard some noise from the road but it did not keep me awake and I slept well.

When I stayed (end August 2017) there were road works between the cottage and Acadia National Park. I didn't get delayed very much by these on the way to the park but I followed the diversion signs coming back and that seemed to take a while. Once the road works are finished I would see the extra journey time to the park a very reasonable trade off for the price of this accommodation versus staying in, say, Bar Harbor.

There were a couple of places to eat very close by but nowhere to buy any groceries so I suggest bringing some supplies (which I failed to do).

I was a bit cold in the morning and couldn't work out if there was heating. I left before 7am though and the sign on the Office said it opened at 8am so I couldn't ask.

I thought it was good value for money.

We are very pleased that you found the cottage very clean and the bed comfortable. It is listed as the #1 and #2 things that are most important to our guests and we try hard to deliver on that. There is heat in all the cottages, this time of the year it is a struggle needing air conditioning during the day and then it gets chilly at night. We do have a small IGA grocery store 1/2 mile down the street for small grocery items. There is current construction on the island on the way to the park (thankfully not in front of Isleview) which is improving the roads and creating bike lanes. Thank you for staying with us and for the review.

We would not recommend this place, mainly due to the location. It is located circa 25 minutes from Acadia National Park and next to the main road. So if you are a light sleeper; you can hear the road very well (also during the night very busy).

Secondly, if you come with many luggage (we are in a 3 weeks holiday), the cottage is just too small. Lastly, we stayed two nights. The second morning, we discovered that the housekeeper (they only change towels and garbage, they do not make the bed) threw away our box with coffee (supplies) and energy bars. We left early so couldn't say anything to the person behind the welcome desk. This gave us a extra feeling to not come back at this place!

For the same price you can find a better stay at a better location!

I am sorry you were unhappy with your stay. You stated it was mainly due to location and obviously guests have the ability to book anywhere, but we can't move! Our prices are lower because we are not located on the island. Acadia National park is 8.5 miles from our driveway to the entrance and should not take 25 minutes. Our cottages are small and are described and shown on the website, so yes if you are coming with a lot of luggage and feel the need to unload all of it, it will be cramped inside. As to our outstanding housekeeping staff who are praised repeatedly in all the other reviews you see on TripAdvisor for the clean rooms, please note several things: they do make beds, however they will not do it if you leave personal items left laying on top of it; they are extremely wary of throwing anything away that isn't expressly left by the trash can, they have left boxes in cabins for days that guests were trying to get rid of but they err on the side of caution. I did ask them if they could recall your issue and they said you asked them about it, but they did not recall throwing away a box and they always look inside before they do. This also means you could have brought this incident to the front desk before you left but chose not to. Your very last statement I will highly object to. This is where Isleview shines. We are a budget property listed in the good category of TripAdvisor. You CANNOT find a cottage for the same price in the bar harbor area with a good rating...you can definitely find worse and you can definitely find pricier.

Great location while visiting Bar Harbor and Acadia. Room was clean and king size bed was very comfortable. It seemed like it was new. Bathroom was ok, could use some updating. Overall, it was very charming. Only negative, is you can hear some road noise. Could be a problem for light sleepers.
