My husband and I live in Portland; we visit Acadia every summer and like to bring our dog. Several places allow pets, but these cottages are by far the best. They are so homey, comfortable, and clean. David and Yvonne, the owners, are very attentive and nice. We have found our yearly retreat! Thank you!

This place is an absolute gem! We couldn't have been more satisfied. This quaint cottage was spotless and very comfortable. The owners went out of their way to make sure every part of our stay went perfectly. If we get a chance to revisit this area, there is no question that we will stay here again.

We had the most wonderful experience at this place! Our cottage (The Pines) was just amazingly well kept and clean. Everything was up to date and very well taken care of. The whole grounds as well.

Spent two nights here after a 580 mile drive from Philadelphia. A well kept memory of travel in the 1940s and far superior to motel chains or expensive resorts. Ate lobsta and rock crabs in the cottage kitchen from the next door lobsta cooker. Bah Haba rules!

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Rose Eden is a special place that is nestled in the woods away from the downtown hustle but near Acadia Park and within 5 minutes of an ocean front beach. We maintain a family atmosphere with a small playground and picnic, barbeque and fire pit areas (barbeque grilles are available for your use). There is a Lobster take out business on site where you can buy lobsters to cook yourself or a lobster dinner to eat at your cottage or in one of the picnic areas. Locally processed wines and beer can be purchased next door to compliment the lobster dinners. Rose Eden is a perfect place for a group to gather for a family reunion or a family to relax after enjoying the many things to do and see in this special place on the coast of Maine. ... more   less
