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!
Planning to return to 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.
The cottages were exceptionally clean and very comfortable. The kitchenette was equipped with everything we needed for our vacation meals.
Their location is excellent, right on Route 3, conveniently located to all Mount Desert Island has to offer. The cottages are set back far enough so that we hardly noticed the sound of passing vehicles. I found it to be very quiet and relaxing. We thoroughly enjoyed sitting on the enclosed porches first thing in the morning, and again in the evening after spending the day exploring the Island.
I highly recommend Eden Village. I am planning to stay with them the next time we visit the area.
The Perfect Spot
My wife an I have been vacationing in the Bar Harbor area for years.
We stayed at Eden Village for the first time, two weeks, in July 2004.
We rented one of their two bedroom cottages complete with fire place,
screened-in porch, bar-B-Q, patio table/chairs, cable TV and parking in front of the cottage. The bed was comfortable. The shower had plenty of hot water. The fridge kept things cold and all kitchen appliences worked perfectly, including the coffee maker, and plenty of clean towles. The electric heater puts out lots of heat when you need it for those cold nights. We enjoyed the peace and quiet during our stay at Eden Village with all the comforts of home. If your a smoker, don't worry. There are ashtrays and smoking is permitted inside the screen porch. The town of Ellsworth is just a short drive away for picking up supplies or buying a new car. Eden Village is clean, well maintained and
a pleasent place to stay.
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.
Wonderful place to stay
We were referred by friends who had stayed here, and we were glad for the reccomendation.
I did alot of research myself and found Eden Village to be about the best price-wise for what we were looking at.
The accommodations are modest but very clean and comfortable, which is what we care about. It is also quiet and set back off the road. The staff was very friendly and helped us out when we wanted to stay another night unplanned, even though it meant juggling rooms. They also gave us a good tip on which boat tour to take, which turned out very nice.
It's also very convenient location-wise to both Acadia park and town--I had wondered if it would be better to stay in town, but that would have been quite a bit more expensive and Eden Village worked out fine for us.
Hope you enjoy your time in Maine, we did!
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.

... walk we ran across a small brown snake sunning himself off of the path, but the real excitement was spotting two beavers playing in the water almost half way around the pond! Once they spotted us, one beaver sounded for danger and the other swam into the dam, which happened to be right below us. I don't think I have ever been so close to a beaver before! Thomas and I took time to read more about beavers in the gift shop while waiting for our table and ...
... gorgeous drive through the sea of pine trees down to Bar Harbor (stopping once for McDonald's in Newport and oggling over the view of Bangor from the bridge over the Penobscot River).
For those of you who have never been to Bar Harbor, it is a quiant little fishing village that has been pumped with money from wealthy vacationers, who built gorgeous mansion "cottages" on the coast. The downtown is full of kitschy souvenir shops, restaurants that all ...
... We ordered a few sides and a couple of canned local brews again. You have to share tables with other people which is kind of fun. We sat outside in the picnic area with another family who was really friendly and ended up showing us an easier way to get the tail out of the lobster(without man handling it so much). This lobster was even better than the night before. The Trenton Bridge Lobster Pound is a family-owned business and the lady at the register was the daughter of the man ...

Within 10 minutes the room is like a sauna and we are shedding clothes (stop it with those smutty remarks!) and opening windows.
We cannot laze around here all day, and at least the rain has finally stopped. We drive back into the park to catch sunset ...
