5/717/08 April, we so enjoyed this perfect location! We were able to walk all over this delightful town. Plus being on a quiet street was a bonus from other places we had stayed. After a day of hiking, biking, kayaking, sleepis precious and we loved the quiet nights surrounding this house. With two couples it was great to be able to spread out!! We hope to come back again soon. Thanks again for this delightful 'home away from home'. Scott, La.

Golf: Kebo Valley Golf Course in Bar Harbor
Kebo Valley Golf Club was founded in 1888. It is the 8th oldest golf club in the United States and has challenged the skills of many of the country’s finest players, most influential politicians and leaders of industry. Nestled between Cadillac and Dorr Mountain in Bar Harbor, Maine, Kebo is a spectacular 6,131 yard, classic link and parkland golf course. Since much of Kebo Valley Golf Course shares its borders with Acadia National Park, you may encounter many forms of wildlife, such as Whitetail Deer and Red Fox, during your round. American Bald Eagles are also frequently seen soaring above the links.
Our championship par 70 course consistently ranks among America’s best public courses. We are rated among the 'Top 15' public courses in New England by the New England Journal of Golf, among the 'Top 10' classical public golf courses by Golf Digest and received a four star rating in Golf Digest’s 'Places to Play.'
