Villager Frequently Asked Questions

About the Villager


Is the Villager pet friendly?

Although we love our furry friends, the Villager is not a pet friendly motel. Our sister property, the Ellsworth Comfort Inn, accepts pets. Please see our Rates and Reservations page for a full list of all motel policies.


Can you walk to downtown Bar Harbor from the Villager?

Yes. The Villager is conveniently located right in the heart of downtown Bar Harbor within a 5 minute walk to shops, restaurants, and the beautiful Bar Harbor waterfront. For a map of downtown Bar Harbor showing our great location, click here.

With service departing from the Village Green just around the corner, the Island Explorer free shuttles can take you to most, if not all, area attractions. Many of our guests love being able to just park their car and experience the area without the hassle of driving and parking.


Do any of the rooms have a view of the water?

No. While we are located just a 5 minute walk from the waterfront, we do not have any views of the water.


Does the Villager offer free parking?

Parking in Bar Harbor can be at a premium during peak times, and we are pleased to offer free parking for one vehicle per room. If you have more than one vehicle per room, we kindly ask that you park the additional vehicle on the street during the overnight hours, so as to ensure sufficient parking for all of our guests.


Does the Villager have an elevator?

No, the Villager does not have an elevator and the building is two levels.  If there is anyone in your party who might have difficulty with stairs, please let us know when you make your reservation, so that we can be sure to note that a ground floor room is preferable.


Does the Villager have family units or suites?

No, we do not have family units or suites.  Our sister properties, the Bar Harbor Motel and the Bar Harbor Grand, have family units.

Our double rooms in the Motel can accommodate up to a maximum of 5 people.  We have a limited quantity of cots and cribs available (may incur additional fee), and they must be reserved well in advance of your arrival.


Does the Villager have a pool?

Yes, we have a 40 ft. x 20 ft. heated outdoor pool.  It is open from Memorial Day weekend through the end of September.  The temperature of the water is generally around 80 degrees Fahrenheit and we provide pool towels on site for guest use.


Does the Villager offer airport transportation?

There is an airport shuttle available in town called the Bar Harbor Shuttle.  Reservations can be made by calling 207-288-5911 or visit their website for more information.  We are not affiliated with this or any other shuttle service.


Is the Villager part of a larger group of hotels?

Yes, the Villager is part of a group of family owned lodging establishments called Witham Family Hotels. At Witham Family Hotels, we take pride in facilitating memorable guest experiences and providing exceptional customer service in clean, comfortable accommodations.
