Sunnyside was just over Trenton Bridge into MDI, so convenient to both Acadia, Bar Harbor, and the 'quiet side' of the island. It is in the country, and the buildings and grounds, although older, are kept up very well and incredibly clean. The room was a bit small, but we enjoyed our stay, and felt it was a good bargain....

The owners of this location are a wonderful couple that have owned this business for decades. Richard and his wife are nice people and we chose to stay at this location based on reading previous reviews. However, I cannot help but wonder if many of the previous reviews were slanted based on the fact that the owners are so nice...

Helpful, friendly owners who let you enjoy their property in peace. Clean, quiet, and reasonally priced for the Bar Habor area. Loved the knotty pine walls. Within five minutes drive of some delicious food, Mainely Meats (breakfast and dinner with everything in between).

Nicest owners ever! I dream of being able to keep my house as spotless and immaculate as these cottages were. Could use a few more dishes in the kitchen, and the fridge was small. But the cottage was perfect, the grounds beautiful, and quite honestly we were happy to give these amazingly hospitable and accomodating owners our business. We will...

We stayed here for 3 nights in one of their motel rooms. The motel rooms had air conditioning whereas the cabins did not and since it was very humid while we were there, we opted for the room. Room was large, had a fridge, but no microwave. Owner was very pleasant and helpful. Loved the two chairs at the end...

Owners are very accommodating. Clean, no frills. Small fridge in motel, can use microwave in office. Didn't have a bath mat until day 3 (didn't know they provided them and we brought some of our towels based on others reviews. Clean, good location would stay again. Only negative was the road noise which wasn't a problem.

We spent two nights here. The owner was so friendly and helpful. He recommended some places to go and a few restaurants. It rained one of the nights we were there and he brought rags for us and the other two guest that were there with motorcycles to wipe them off with. My husband loved being able to relax on...

Owner was helpful in all ways, from rags to wipe of our bikes from the rain, rooms, and the best places to eat and to see. I'd give them 10 stars but they only have 5 on the site. Can't wait to go again.

The room was clean and comfortable. We had a room with two queens and it was facing the road. The owners were friendly, and booked us the night before check in. Did not use pool, only there over night.
