Acadia, Bar Harbor, L.L.Bean, Beautiful sights, place has all equipment needed to take care of yourself in kitchen, Chairs to relax and enjoy what heaven is like. There are different boats for paddling around and a lot of DVD's for rainy days. Rest is great here with restaurants near by if you feel like being waited on.

Windward Cottages is definitely a place that I would not only recommend, but that I would go back to stay at again for sure. The cottage was extremely clean and was fully supplied with any essentials needed to cook in if you’d like, including a lobster pot (definitely essential, as the cottages are located near some incredible lobster pounds and...

Cabins are my choice for lodging..and this one is the best I've ever been to. Located on the quieter (western) side of the island, the cabin was on the water, immaculately clean. Spotless interior with new appliances. A view of western bay out of the picture window facing west made for wonderful sunsets. Hop into your kayak/canoe and paddle for...

This place is exactly as described and pictured on their website. Cottage is cozy, but enough space to relax inside or out. Close to the water with kayaks and canoes available to use at no additional charge. Very relaxed atmosphere and quiet. Close to downtown Bar Harbor and Acadia, but also close enough to the quiet side of the island....

This was our second stay at Windward Cottages. The cottages are roomy enough for four people and allow you to do your own housekeeping and cooking while on vacation. Linens, cooking utensils, and a grill are all furnished. Canoes and kayaks are provided if you would like to take a paddle around the bay. Because it is on the western...

We felt like we were all alone along the waterfront. Gorgeous views from the window. A bit chilly to sit out , but would be great on a warmer day. Clean and efficient. Conveniently located. Well equipped.

Stayed here in October, 2015, in cottage number 1. My daughter and I just loved it! Very clean, in the woods, right on the ocean. Super quite, comfortable beds, all kitchen utensils, even a lobster pot to cook your lobster in and a small portable electric fan. Free DVD's and hiking literature. Also kayaks for free use and free wifi....

The manger Ollie and his wife are wonderful people and do an excellent job of maintaining the cottages. The cottage was extremely clean and the location was not to far from Bar Harbor or Acadia Park. It was very relaxing here and will definitely like to come back again.
