Great location!!

  • 4 of 5

I stayed at Shannon cottage for a continuing education seminar I attended in Bar Harbor. I thought the cottage was as advertised. It was clean and well appointed, they even had a bowl of water waiting on the porch for my dog. It is located on a quiet side street but we were within easy walking distance of just about everything in town. I walked to my seminar in the morning, and walked the dog downtown every evening. I was pleasantly surprised at how dog friendly Bar Harbor is, so many of the restaurants have patios where you can dine with your dog. Many of the stores also let us bring the dog in while shopping, even one of the bakeries let me bring my dog in one morning when i stopped to pick up some blueberry muffins for breakfast. I would love to come back, and would definitely choose to stay at Shannon Cottage again or recommend it to a friend. there were plenty of linens and paper goods, and i thought the beds were comfortable. I only rated it 4 stars instead of 5 because the couch is starting to show enough signs of wear, that it will probably need to be addressed soon.(the cording on the cushions has worn through multiple places and they need to be recovered since the cording is made of plastic and sticks out) overall we were extremely pleased and hope to return again.

Owner's Response: We're so glad that your week at Shannon Cottage was 'almost perfect'! It has been a very busy year and the couch took its share of the load, but it will definitely be replaced before next year's season begins. Thanks again for choosing to stay with us, and we would love to have you (and your pup) visit again in the future. John and Barbara

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!
