We enjoyed our daily walks to the Otter Creek Market for there

great morning coffee.. and walking the local trail to the loop road.. Our highlights included shell hunting along the wonderland trail, hiking the Bubble Rock and the Beech Mt. trail

the kids enjoyed ice cream around the Village Green in Bar Harbor,we enjoyed sleeping with the windows open and feeling the cool breezes blowing through the trees.

See you again...

Great place for a family reunion

  • 5 of 5
We rented the "Otter Lodge" for a family reunion. It was such a comfortable site for our event. The kitchen was spacious and well equipped, the living room was comfortable for relaxing and visiting together. The yard included plenty of space for frisbee and eating outside. Even better, our large group was able to overflow into campsites in the adjacent Blackwoods Campground (NPS), the Otter Creek Inn (a small privately owned motel)as well as a second rental home owned by the same owner. There was plenty of room for everyone, all within easy walking distance. Otter Creek is so convenient, close to rock climbing at Otter Cliffs, hiking and biking throughout the park and cultural events in the town of Bar Harbor.The house is close to the park bus line so it's easy to get around.
