A great place to stay in Bar Harbor!!

My family and I loved this cottage. It was a quick walk to town, and situated in a very quiet neighborhood. My kids loved all the extras in the house- books, movies, games and puzzles. We were really able to relax and it felt like home!

Perfect Stay

  • 5 of 5
We had a perfect stay at Shannon Cottage June 7-14. Excellent location within walking distance of town. We will definitely book this house again when we return to Maine for we could not have asked for a better spot for home base. The owners are kind and attentive and helped provide a wonderful experience in a beautiful place.

A Memorable Time in Bar Harbor

  • 5 of 5
My family really enjoyed our stay at the Shannon Cottage in Bar Harbor. The cottage and the location were as the owner described in the listing. Getting to town was a quick five minute walk. If you are there on a Sunday be sure to pick up a pie from the church on the corner. We biked to Acadia and it took about 10 minutes. Driving to the park's main entrance takes about 10 minutes too.

The cottage was clean and well kept. It was also nice that the cottage had air conditioning. The week we were there temperatures hit 90 degrees. The owner was a pleasure to deal with. She even sent brochures and visitor information with the contract. If we return to Bar Harbor, i hope that we can stay at the Shannon Cottage again!

Wonderful location

  • 5 of 5
We stayed here for three weeks in Sept 2012. The Shannon house was perfect!!! Comfortable with an excellent house layout, a living room that can comfortably sit six people, updated kitchen, washer/dryer, large backyard for our dog. No car is needed as the house is close to everything and the town has free bus service to take everyone all over Acadia National Park.The house is in a very quiet residential area only a five minute walk from the village square and great restaurants; and another three minute walk down to the harbor. We had a wonderful time and would definitely recommend the Shannon Cottage to anyone wanting a fine house located close to the heart of the beautiful town of Bar Harbor.

So much more than expected!

  • 5 of 5
The photos and description do not do justice to this lovely home! Immaculately clean and despite its small size, the floor plan and furnishings made it easy to stow all that four daughters aged 13 to 21 packed for vacation. It is an ideal location in Bar Harbor within a short walk to shopping and dining but situated on a quiet street. The kitchen is very well equipped and convenient and Hannaford's market is just a short walk away. Plenty of videos, games, puzzles and books for rainy days too. We are absolutely delighted that we found Shannon Cottage and recommend it highly!
