We booked the large cabin for $70 a night. The cabin esp. the downstairs was very dirty, it seemed like for months it had not been cleaned. We were very reluctant to use any of the dishes and other stuffs that came with the cabin. The upstairs was little better, we had bought our own sleeping bags and clean sheets to put on the beds provided. The grill was unclean and had strong fish odor. The office totally ignored our complaints. WILL NEVER GO NEAR THE PLACE AGAIN.

Finding affordable lodging on MDI can be a fruitless pursuit if you aren't careful. We went down for to pitch a tent here and it ended up pouring, I mean outright wet everything for 2 days. And you know what, we stayed! The owner was FABULOUS! She showed us the clothes dryer and gave us a cabin to sleep in. She charges $40-$55per night depending on the season (can't beat that!). The cabins sleep anywhere from 3 to 5 people I think. They are CLEAN, spotless clean. The beds were super comfortable. Each cabin looks a little different and are positioned as you can have as much privacy as you want/require or mix and mingle with the other guests.They come quipped with either a gas grill or charcoal (make your choice at check in.), a firepit, picnic table, books, fans or heaters depending on the season. Most have a front porch with chairs (perfectly relaxing). The bathrooms are clean and conveinient (and I'm super neurotic about bathrooms!)I only live an hour away but I'll stay there again and again. We went down to do some running along the carriage trails and hiking and exploring the island. All was accomplished. This place is in the Bass Harbor area, past SW Harbor. But if you're familiar with MDI, nothing is much of a drive. We explored this side of the very NON Tourist area with abandoned on the rainy days and it was like 5-10 minutes to SW? Although the island explorer can pick you up and drop you off hourly. If you want to stay intown BarHarbor with all the cars, action and, well, everyone else then this is not the place for you. This is a perfect, quiet place to sleep and base camp for exploring MDI. Plus it has to be the most affordable place ANYWHERE! It may cost less, but it's definatley better than those run down cabins along Rt3. You won't be disappointed.
