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....

We have been coming here for many years and always stay in Cottage 1 which has a king bed, kitchen, living room area and working stone fireplace. The cottages are rustic but very well appointed and clean. Wood is provided daily for fires which is a very nice feature in the fall when the nights get very cool. They are...

My daughter and I stayed here while visiting the Bar Harbor/Acadia area. It looks like you are driving into a residential area and then when you get to the edge of the water this is where the cottages are located. We stayed in #11 which is at the end of the row so it was even more secluded. The area...

We stayed in the Seascape Suite (2nd floor of the White House) there was a great screened in porch overlooking the water. It was a short 1/10th of a mile walk to the office and grassy area with the chairs shown in the photos. The unit was quite large. One BR had 2 queen (I think) beds and the other...

Great place to stay! Cozy cottage right on the water. Cottage was small (perfect for two) but clean and well appointed. Owners were friendly and helpful with finding restaurants, etc. I would highly recommend this location!

We really enjoyed staying at the Edgewater cottages. The owners were so welcoming. Our suite unit was perfect. Would easily house two couples or a family of 4. Beautiful setting right in the water. Would definitely stay there again.

These cabins are exceptionally clean and well appointed. Cozy little kitchen but very functional. Cook top with no oven but pots and pans and dishes were all well stocked. The cabins sit right on the shore with nice views in a peaceful, quiet setting. In cabin number 5, we parked right next the cottage which was very convenient. Nice little...

We stayed in Cottage #3 just a few feet away from the shoreline. It was exceptionally clean with an outstanding view. It is so peaceful there that I can't wait until I retire so we can stay more than one week. The people that run the place are very friendly and will help in any way they can. Edgewater is...

Located in Bar Harbor, Edgewater Motel and Cottages is an all waterfront property with many treasures.

Our waterfront cottages, motel, and suites are all beautifully positioned on our private pebble beach nestled on a cove, offering much quiet and serenity after a long day of activity.
