Lovely place to stay, especially with pets!

I stayed here exactly a year ago, and my boyfriend and I still dream about going back! These cozy and clean cabins are a great deal (check out low season rates), pet friendly, conveniently located (down the road from Acadia Park entrance), and overlooks the bay (very cool to watch high/low tides here). There are two cabins that looks directly onto the bay (more$$), but we stayed in the cheaper ones (3) that still had a partial bay view.
The cabin were cozy, on the smaller side, has a really comfy queen bed, an arm chair, dresser, flat screen TV, a mini fridge, a microwave, and a two-person coffee pot with a bathroom attached. It was enough for me, my bf, and a 16-lb dog (another couple had 2 dogs!). Bathroom (w/shower) was small, but enough for one person at a time. My bf is 6 ft tall and he thought the showerhead was too low. I'm 5ft3 and I thought it was fine. For some reason, our shower was VERY loud when it was on, but it has ample hot water and amazing water pressure.
We felt very calm and relaxed staying here. We got great weather 3/4 days and the cabin was comfy, SUPER clean, and pleasant enough that we had no problems staying in and watching CSI reruns during the day it downpoured. The price was good, and lower than other pet-friendly places in the area. We were also able to leave our well-behaved dog in the cabin while we went out for food, which was a nice treat for us. They have an electric grill that you share with 2 cabins and we were the only ones grilling. We brought a pan for eggs in the morning, made sandwiches for lunch, and grilled hotdogs/steaks for dinner. There is a picnic table on the grass for eating. You can easily borrow plates/utensils from the Chart Room, the restaurant right next to the cabins, owned by the same couple. The owners were very friendly.
The cabins are located right off the road (Route 3, main road). Some ppl may think it's not private enough or it's too noisy. To me, night traffic was minimal/nonexistent because bars shut down at 10PM, but by 7:45/8 AM, you start hearing trucks drive by (didn't bother me at all). Parking was always available right off the road; the cabin is about 50 feet away. The bay is about another 50-70 feet away.
