The view and location of this place was phenomenal, but it is in dire need of updating and our bed was very uncomfortable. We loved the outside deck and view of the harbor. Breakfast didn’t offer much.

Comfy out of the way motel with a short walk to other amenities at Southwest Harbor. It was the first time to stay there for us, but many folks come back and I understand why. It’s a great base to then explore Acadia.
