8/10 Very good

This is a really nice cabin, they left groceries such as cereal, milk and more which was a nice touch. The throwback was that the area was clear cut for further development. Very nice, will be back!

4/10 Fair

BEWARE! First this place is in the middle of no where! It said 8 miles to Bar Harbor - across the bay! It is 55 minutes by road. Restaurants close by 6 or 7 at the latest. Breakfast is minimal. Bagels, hard boiled eggs, jams and cream cheese that were in "community packaging". Not sure that this followed COVID requirements! And, completely green MOLDY BAGES were in the self-serve case! The room had two kitchen chairs and a wooden outdoor rocker for seating. The bathroom was so small it was difficult to turn around in. The shower so small that when you turned to wash your elbow hit the faucet. And --- My mother had emergency surgery requiring us to leave early. They refused to refund the two nights we did not stay. They then accused us of threatening them by putting up this negative and very true review.
