Deborah's restaurant review:
First night we were there our host recommended a restaurant called Café This Way located on Mount Desert Street (actually tucked away in an alley off the street)… while it came with high praise we did not enjoy our dining experience. Considering the price, the food was not up to snuff (at least ours). We ordered The Littlebits as an appetizer and were expecting great things – we were let down, ...
... to go take the Park Loop Rd which is a 20 mile loop along the coast of the Island. Bar Harbor (Bah Ha Bah) is the bees knees on the Island. It has a cute and bustling downtown area. The Park Loop Rd began near there so we decided to visit the downtown first for lunch. Seafood is a MUST around these parts so we had steamed mussels in an Allagash White (local brew) garlic butter and a lobster roll. We walked all the way down to the pier and soaked up the views. Small islands are ...
... roll in just like you've seen on tv.
After the tour, we took the tender boat (Bar Harbor itself doesn't have a cruise ship terminal so we're anchored in the bay)back to town to walk down Main Street and do some shopping. It had more stores than I expected for a small town but I suppose with cruise ships arriving all summer and fall, they can do a very good business. It was agan a beautiful sunny day with temps around 18-20 degrees.
Notes about the ship/Princess: The ...
Today started out as another cold and drizzly morning. I did not have any real plans and decided to head to the southwest portion of Acadia and the Bass Harbor Heat Lighthouse. This lighthouse is owned by the Coast Guard and has a family living at it. This means you have to stick to the path and observe all the signs about private property. The light probably isn't something you would need to go out of your way to see, ...
... one of the carriage paths it really is beautiful in this part of the world. There are some amazing walks, it was a bit of a pity with the weather and we felt limited with the kids. Something we can do later in life.
Seeing as we hadn't had a decent meal all day we decided to have breakfast/lunch/supper rolled into one. We went into Bar Harbor where we found a classic American diner Route 66. Well our meal ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Eden Village Motel and Cottages Bar Harbor
Wonderful, as always
I have stayed with Eden Village about a half dozen times over the last few years and always find it to be a great place. Bob and Gail are great, the cottages are always clean and well taken care of. You've got to love the little duck pond and it's in a great location for getting to and from both Acadia NP and Bar Harbor.
Eden Village was wonderful and we can't wait to go back!!
Eden Village is a wonderful place to stay. Our cottage was clean, well equipped and comfortable. Our dachshund Tasha was welcomed and she had an excellent time exploring the nature walk and the area around the pond. The fireplace in the cottage was a treat, as was the screened porch, and we enjoyed having a grill just steps from the cottage. The owners are friendly, knowledgable, and made us feel right at home. We hope to return next year. I highly recommend Eden Village!
We stayed for one week in both 2004 and 2003, in one of the cottages. Eden Village is a great value for your money, which is very important to budget minded families like mine.
My wife an I have been vacationing in the Bar Harbor area for years.
Loved Our Vacation at Eden Village and Bar Harbor
We very much enjoyed our cabin and the hospitality provided by Gail and Bob at Eden Village. Coming from Daytona Beach, Florida, it was just what we hoped a vacation in Maine would be like--friendly people, terrrific fresh seafood, and homemade blueberry pies. We even lucked out with the weather. We were able to see a beautiful sunrise at the top of Cadillac Mountain at 4 a.m. We are definitely going to try to get back to Eden Village again. It was an incredible vacation.
Great Vacation Stay
My sister and I had a great week in June of 2004 while we stayed at Eden Village. The room was so clean and well maintained. The personnel were so helpful and friendly. The back patio for morning coffee and view of the mountains was surely a plus. The location was perfect for getting to Acadia National Park and other places in Maine quickly. I would return to Eden Village any and every time. Kudos to Gail for such a lovely place so well landscaped and maintained.

A very nice place to stay
we are very satisfied with the service. will definitely stay there when we visit Bar Harbor again.
We were referred by friends who had stayed here, and we were glad for the reccomendation.
My mother and I needed a few days of what we call "ocean time". Both of us love Acadia and wanted a reasonably priced get-away to reconnect with the beauty of Mount Desert Island. Eden Village met all our needs with a spacious, clean, well-appointed room with a lovely rear deck, adequate kitchenette, and comfotable beds. We found the staff friendly and helpful. The grounds were lovely and scenic. It didn't have that "commercial" feel to it so we felt at home.
I am sure that one or both of us will return there in the near future!
Super-Clean and Family-friendly
Our cottage was just perfect--screened-in porch, fireplace, privacy. Everything was very, very clean. The kitchen was well-stocked. We
had 2 TV's (one for dad to watch baseball and one for the kids!).
The shuttle to town and to Acadia stops right in front of Eden Village.
The atmosphere is secluded and quaint.
