I was mocking the Americans about yesterday being the end of summer and today being the 1st of autumn (fall i should say). Well I mock no more. After our alarm didn't go off and we were positively flying around we made it just in time for our group photo at 8 am. Once outside the briskness of the morning hit us. It was bloody freezing. The lazy wind was going straight through us. The ...
We headed out of Boston at 8 am having to have our suitcases out our doors at 6.45! I had rained overnight but was fining up.
We travelled through Massachusetts, New Hampshire for only 15 miles and onto Maine. Our first stop was at York to see one of the few lighthouses that still has a lighthouse keeper.
In Maine the residents decorate their houses according to the season. A lot ...
... Next thing you know, it was almost noon and the sun was beginning to peek out. That was all the invitation I needed!
I packed up and headed to Acadia National Park. Today on the itinerary were the Carriage Roads, the one thing left on my list I hadn't done. The carriage roads were built by Rockefellar way back when because he wanted roads for his carriage where no motorized vehicles could go. A place where it would be quiet. They ...
... park. But we kind of made a wrong turn and ended up in downtown bar harbor where there was an incredible amount of traffic and Randi was driving our 30ft class c with the car in tow around these narrow streets and making turns. She did such a great job. So kudos to Randi once again! Acadia is a beautiful as expected, but pretty crowded. Whenever we get to a national park, we always go to the ranger’s talk. The first one was on ranger ...
We packed a lunch and went exploring into Acadia National Park on Mount Desert Island today. Bar Harbour is on the island and is pretty touristy, but the rest of the island has a national park on it (sort of broken up into chunks) and has lots of small communities.
We toured around enjoying the coastal views ...

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.
