Amazing memories, lovely cabin

  • 5 of 5

I am torn, I dont want to advertise this place too much, so the booking will become impossible.The truth is, we loved the cabin and the hospitality of the owners. Great location, it was equipped with everything we needed. Good heating system, on a cooler nights. Great communication. we loved sitting on the deck, watching sunsets. I read previous comments, about " uneven" fire pit" location. We found it the fire pit in a cozy place, very easy to use, and the tiny slope ( the cabin is on the hill) just adds the charm. very easy to access, and to use. we are coming back next year to create even more great memories. also the access to washer and dryer is a luxury in this kind of settings. All together amazing place to stay .

Amazing Location, Amazing little spot!

  • 5 of 5

The hosts could not have made this more convenient. Their directions were clear and precise. After a six hour drive, we could not have felt more comfortable and at home in this completely new place to us (we've never been to Acadia or Bar Harbor). We were in a perfect spot off the main road into Bar Harbor (about 10 mins) and Acadia National Park entrance was about 5 minutes away, which was super-helpful, as we needed to get to our trailhead for 4:30 am to start our sunrise hike up Cadillac Mountain. It was so nice after a day of hiking, paddling and biking, and walking the shops in Bar Harbor to come back to this very peaceful, secluded cottage. Coffee maker ready, fireplace with firewood and kindling ready to go, and a firepit outside (we didnt get to use due to rain, but the fireplace inside was great to snuggle up to at night). We are so glad we stayed here, rather than in the middle of the hustle and bustle in Bar Harbor. Peaceful nights and mornings. Very clean little spot. We will definitely be back, as soon as possible!

Great place to stay while enjoying Acadia! We enjoyed watching the sunset each evening after relaxing from our adventures that day. Access to the carriage roads around Eagle Lake was close, as was an entrance to the park. It was nice to have the comforts of home right there! We definitely would recommend this cottage to others!

Perfect location, clean, comfortable, private but not too secluded, laundry a huge bonus!

  • 5 of 5

We were vacationing from PA with two kids (13) and (10). We loved our stay at sunset cottage! Owners were quick to respond with any inquiry we had. This property is a rustic cottage with good amenities. It provided for all our needs and is an ideal location for visiting Acadia. We started and ended our days on the porch....great views of sunset and the starry night. Cottage is on a quiet drive with no thru traffic. Available laundry was a huge bonus! Trip to Ellsworth (25 min) to Wal Mart for perishables. Beds were comfortable and loft was a fun place for kids to hang out. Only wish we had more time here!

Great location good price

  • 3 of 5

Snug fit for four. Has all the necessary kitchen items for cooking lobster and loved the dumpster access for disposal of shells rather than accumulating in cans outside the house! Lovely view. Great location for access to Acadia and Bar Harbor. Has an outdoor fireplace which is cool; but difficult to use due to extremely uneven terrain. Great Weber grill. We use charcoal at home so were happy to have the chimney to start the grill. Cell service was spotty at the house which made it difficult to get in touch with the owners when we arrived and had a question. Used a combination of call, text and email and got through 😁� Situation resolved quickly. In a pinch head to Bar Harbor for excellent service.

Owner's Response: We're sorry you found us only 3 stars mostly it seems due to the spotty cell service. We usually have good cell phone service at the cottage but this can also depend in part on your carrier. The service has improved over the years with technology improvements but it is true cell phone service can be spotty in and around Acadia. Regarding uneven terrain referring to the area around the fire pit. Since the cottage is located on a mountaintop there is an uneven area but this has not been mentioned before by guests as being a problem. Most of the terrain around the cottage is even or sloping. Thank you for your feedback we appreciate all your good thoughts. We hope you come visit us again someday!

Enjoyed our stay

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time staying at Sunset Cottage. My wife and 15mo old son stayed a week and the place worked great for us! We also had a couple friends stay with us for a few days, and with 4 adults, the cottage was just a little snug but totally doable. Favorite part - grilling out on the porch watching the sunset, and making smores around the fire pit.

Car: recommended

At Sunset Point Cottage, you're in the heart of Bar Harbor and Acadia National Park, which draws more than three million visitors a year. Drive along the rugged, granite coastline of the Park Loop Road to enjoy magnificent elevated views of the harbor and the sparkling Atlantic. Or head to the bustling downtown area for sightseeing, dining, shopping, and entertainment.

Other Activities: cathedral ceiling
