At the end of a beautiful tree-lined road, our family of four, including two teenagers, loved our 5 day stay in Bar Harbor at the Bird's Nest Cottage. The location is truly perfect, with easy walking access to the harbor, the town, and the free Island Explorer bus system. Roberta and Lisabeth made sure we were comfortable and spoiled, and even surprised us with some amazing home baked goodies from the Shore Path Cottage B&B in the main house next door. The tranquil location in busy summer Bar Harbor was a welcome retreat.
The cottage was well equipped, and the beds were very comfortable. The washer and dryer were new and efficient and came in very handy. I hadn't paid much attention to the description of the property, but it's worth noting there isn't a dishwasher. We prepared several meals at the cottage, and it was not a problem.
Highlights of our trip included: rock climbing in Acadia, Thurston's Lobster Pound in Bernard (expect a line), Lulu's lobster boat, AcadiaImprov (a short walk from the cottage), reclining on the lawn adjacent to the cottage, exploring the Bar Harbor Shore Path, and whale watching. Bar Harbor restaurant recommendations from our hosts were amazing.
The property is in beautiful condition and I thoroughly recommend it.
