They messed up my reservation. Reserved cottage 20 with better sleeping arrangements for my family. When we got there, they had given 20 to someone else and we got cottage 15 with less than desirable sleeping arrangements for us. Bathroom showed signs of not being cleaned recently.

We loved the access to the shore, and having a private cottage. The location near Acadia was ideal. We had plenty of room for our family in our cottage, and we appreciated having the mini fridge and access to laundry facilities. The cottages could use some updates, including new bedspreads exterior painting, and repairing torn screens. We were fine with the limited housekeeping services, though I wish we had been provided with clean coffee mugs or dish soap to wash them ourselves. The facilities are simple but provided what we needed.

Thank you for the review..The bedspreads were new at the end of last year.The floral pattern may not be for everyone But they were over$120 each..We replace screens everyday because as you know people don't treat your equipment that well..And we are constantly painting living next to the most caustic thing on the planet .THE OCEAN...THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR THE REVIEW WE WILL CONTINUE TO WORK WITH YOUR WORDS IN MIND

Location is great; near entrance to Acadia Visitor center and close to Bar Harbor. View out to Frenchmans Bay is great and near by restaurant, Chart House is excellent. Rooms are a bit dated but clean and functional.
