Bay Meadow Cottages, in the village of Salisbury Cove, offer a tranquil setting along the coast of Maine. Early 20th-century visionaries donated the land that became Acadia National Park. Picnic tables and fire pits grace the lawn to provide a setting to enjoy your morning coffee or roast marshmallows while you reflect on your day’s adventures. We are an easy 5 minutes from the entrance to Acadia National Park and just 10 minutes to Bar Harbor.

Steve and Kirsten have made these cottages a welcoming and relaxing escape for two. Cottages are cozy and location is perfect as a base to visit sites across the island. Our favorite perks were the coffee and paddle boards. Cottages all have their own grill and they sell…

Very memorable experience. The little cottages are cozy and come with everything you'll need: grill, kitchen supplies, coffee maker, showers, linens. The place is right by the water (with chairs for you to sit and enjoy an ocean view) and about 20 mins to Bar Harbor. Steve and…
