Clean and Comfortable...wonderful people!
Posted Sep 25, 2016
We booked 3 nights at Colonial Gables as part of our Boston-Maine vacation. This was the closest we could get to Acadia Nat'l Park without exceeding our budget; we also wanted someplace comfortable with good reviews. Colonial Gables fit the bill and then some. The bed was very comfortable, and the room had a pleasant, New England style decor. We stayed in one of the hotel rooms. When we return to Maine, we will definitely stay again but might try one of the cottages instead because they are closer to the water. There is a fire pit right on the beach; the owner sets it up each evening so guests can relax and enjoy. The grounds are charming; each cottage is unique and they all have an ocean view.
On our first full day at Acadia, I had a terrible fall on a sidewalk. I broke my nose, lost one tooth, loosened another and cut up my face something awful. Received wonderful treatment at the local Bar Harbor hospital ER, but the next morning needed to find a local dentist to re-set and stabilize my teeth. We had no cell reception inside our room, so we went to the hotel office to ask to use their land line. The girl at the desk not only let us use their land line; she also made several calls to help us find a dentist who could see me immediately. When she was having no luck, the maintenance man actually drove to a nearby dentist office that he knew to see if they could take an emergency patient. With their help, I was able to see a great dentist early that afternoon.
