Overview

Bar Harbor Cottage Rental Photos and Description

5 bedrm, 2 bath, sleeps 10. 1 block to Village Green, 2 blocks to Frenchman Bay

This lovely in-town home 1 block from the Village Green and 2 blocks from the waterfront has been fully renovated with all your comforts in mind. A retro kitchen and 5 bedrooms are vintage cottage perfect for your vacation in the spring, summer or fall. Take in the sights and sounds of Bar Harbor and Frenchman Bay, explore the natural beauty of Acadia National Park on your own or with its many Ranger talks and guided tours. Take a carriage ride or hike Cadillac Mountain. Relax on one of the many boating excursions or simply sit back and watch a world class cruise ship come in to Frenchman Bay. View the first sunrise on the Eastern seaboard from the Summit and enjoy the beautiful sunsets as well. This cottage offers a restful spot for relaxing on the enclosed porch with large sliding windows and wicker furnishings. A large private deck off the second floor master bedroom provides additional outdoor space for relaxation. A new backyard stone patio and grill is perfect for barbecue.

Travel on Mt. Desert Island / Downtown Activities: The Island Explorer is a free bus service running fixed schedules for 7 different routes on MDI in the summer months. One of those routes has a stop just across the MDI bridge in Trenton. Some buses have bike transport. This wonderful, convenient, congestion-reducing service is provided in large part by a grant from the LL Bean Company (the original store located in Freeport, Maine, north of Portland, is open 24 hours in case you are traveling from that direction. They also have an outlet store in Ellsworth, Maine, on the road to Bar Harbor.

Downtown Bar Harbor. Beyond the many interesting stores and restaurants and sights downtown, do enjoy one of the various boat trips out of Frenchman Bay. One of our favorites: Lulu's Lobster Boat with Capt. John. Very educational and enjoyable including a trip around the local seal haven and some lobster trap stops along the way. Also, enjoy cruise ship watching in Frenchman Bay as you stroll along the Shore Path or relax on a bench.

Acadia Park Ranger Talks and Walks: Acadia park ranger talks or walks: There are many of these daily and they are very enjoyable and informative. The topics range from geology to carriage trails to animals and birds of Acadia to history, such as the fire of 1947, to many different seascape or tidal pool topics. There is also a topic and slide show presented every evening at Blackwoods Camp and a hawk watch on Cadillac Summit at the appropriate season. We have found the rangers who present topics to be very dedicated to their subject matter.

Acadia: In addition to 44 miles of carriage trails, there are many opportunities for walks and bike rides of varying distances, and mountain hikes of varying degrees of challenge and effort with the ultimate probably being Precipice Trail. There are also Echo and Eagle Lakes and Sand Beach for water activities.

Jordan Pond: Don't miss the experience of coming here for the tradition of tea and popovers in the afternoon.

Relax and enjoy the beautiful view.

Golf on MDI - a Special Pleasure: Kebo Valley Golf Club -- very near Eden Center Cottage and a real treat and challenge to play. 8th oldest course in the US. It began as a race track and the terrain of the track is evident in the layout of the holes closest to the clubhouse. With the beauty and looming presence of Cadillac Mountain many greens have unexpected breaks and none more surprising so than the 17th hole. Also, from the vast sloped waste bunker of the 17th hole legend says President Taft took 27 strokes to escape. No matter how you play, unfailingly you will enjoy the day.

Northeast Harbor Golf Course -- a narrow, very scenic course threading through a hilly and wooded terrain on many holes. Short in length but challenging and very enjoyable for a strategy of positional golf.

Causeway Club -- Southwest Harbor. This is a pleasant, enjoyable, relatively flat 9 hole course with some water views. It does have a several very challenging holes and is recommended for a leisurely walk.

About Jerome Missel/Rebecca Godley

My wife and I live in Rhode Island but visit our home in Bar Harbor often. We love the fact that you can walk downtown, hike the Shore Path and dine out--all without driving a car! Kebo Golf course is one half mile away from our home--that's where I am on most afternoons!

Jerome Missel/Rebecca Godley purchased this cottage in 2004

Why Jerome Missel/Rebecca Godley chose Bar Harbor

Beautiful area--Acadia National Park is listed as one of the 1000 places one should visit!!

The numerous Ranger Talks / Walks and Boat Tours cover so many interesting topics relating to history, geology, plant and wildlife.

wonderful home

  • 5 of 5
The house is beautiful, clean and homey. The owners were great to deal with. When the dvd player did not work , they arranged for us to get another one the next day. We were 5 adults and 2 children. We did not want to leave at the end of the week. My grandson said we could come back. but only to this house. The location is ideal to walk everywhere you need and want to go! We already reserved it for next year! I would recommend this home to anyone.

Exactement ce que nous recherchions!

  • 5 of 5
En entrant dans cette charmante maison, on a vite réalisé qu' on aurait pas pu trouver mieux. Ce fut un délice d'explorer les chambre une après l'autre et d'en déduire les thèmes. Tout était très propre et arrangé avec goût. Nous étions 6 sœurs et avions chacune sont propre lits.

La maison est située a quelque minutes de marche seulement des commerces et des boutiques. Nous avons prit grand plaisir a faire nos emplettes à l'épicerie pour ensuite revenir à la maison à pied.

Les propriétaires sont très aimables et obligeants.

Exactly what we were looking for!

  • 5 of 5
From the moment we entered this house, we knew had hit the jackpot!! Beautifully decorated, clean and welcoming. Every room is decorated with style. We had the greatest fun going from room to room to taking in their theme and cachet. We marveled greatly at the lobsters everywhere. We were 6 sisters and each had our own bed.

This house if situated within walking distance to all the stores, Great pleasure was taking in grocery shopping and walking home with our goods.

The owners were very gracious helpful and easy to do business with.

A wonderful home away from home!!

  • 5 of 5
This is a spacious, comfortable well kept home. It has all the amenities you would need while on vacation - and the kitchen is well stocked with more than just the basics! Situated on a quiet side street - yet minutes walk from down town Bar Harbor. The owners were very helpful and they have plenty of up to date information on all the local attractions and menus from local restaurants in the house. We enjoyed almost daily trips to Acadia National Park, did an evening Nature Cruise and tried a number of the local cafes and restaurants. All in all the week was a total success and we would certainly return to not only Bar Harbor, but this house and would highly recommend both to others. Thanks so much Jerry and Rebecca for sharing your home!

Feel "at home" in Bar Harbor

Feel "at home" in Bar Harbor
  • 5 of 5
Jerry and Rebecca saved our vacation! A week before we were to leave for Bar Harbor, we found out that the innkeeper at the B&B accidentally cancelled our reservation and had no rooms. When other B&B's did not have options that were right for us, we decided to contact owners of HomeAway houses that were not rented during our planned stay. Jerry and Rebecca were the first to respond. Having already looked at Eden Center Cottage a possible place to rent for a future family vacation, we decided to go for it. We are certainly glad we did!

Jerry and Rebecca are great hosts and went out of their way to make our stay comfortable. They provided us with a great deal of information that helped us with our stay including suggested routes to Bar Harbor, recommendations for food and sightseeing, and even a cruise ship schedule. They also provided details on their home. We were familiar with the place before were arrived. They answered all our questions promptly via email.

Eden Center Cottage is conveniently located in the center of Bar Harbor. We parked in the driveway and did not walk more that three blocks to get to shopping, groceries, restaurants, and in-town "trails". Unlike most rental houses that are furnished generically, it is decorated with the owners' warm personal touches that it feels like you are staying in their home. Jerry and Rebecca have renovated this Victorian to have all the modern amenities while maintaining the period architecture both inside and out. We enjoyed the themed bedrooms (the Bombay room was our favorite), the enclosed front porch, the private patio garden, the second floor sun deck, and the fully equipped and stocked kitchen.

We spent our mornings on the carriage roads and trails Acadia National Park (Witch Hole Pond, Great Head, The Bubbles and Jordan Pond, and Hadlock Brook Falls/Lake), our afternoons relaxing on the enclosed front porch, and "dining-in" on food from Bar Harbor's best restaurants (Rosalie's, Cafe This Way, The Thirsty Whale, and Galyn's) with leftovers for lunch the next day!

For us, staying at Eden Center Cottage turned out to be an even better option than at the B&B. We were on our own schedule and had plenty of room to relax in the privacy of "our home"! We are planning to return next year for a full week and hope to enjoy all that Mount Desert Island has to offer with our family and friends. Jerry and Rebecca--Thank You!

Bar Harbor Vintage

  • 5 of 5
We had a wonderful vacation in Bar Harbor the home was perfect. We had 5 adults and 2 children ( 5 & 2 ). The location was in easy walking distance to the town and we put on several miles. The house was clean and roomy. Having the stackable washer and dryer on the second floor was great with two children. Nice, spacious kitchen although we ate out most of the time as we were out and about. Jordan's for blueberry pancakes is a must! We all slept very comfortable.
As it was early in the season so not all tours were in full gear. We did take the 9:30 lighthouse cruise and that was very good. We did see a bald eagle and the seals. Of course Acadia National Park was beautiful. There was plenty of brochures at the house to help plan our days. We would certainly do this again.
We were provided with plenty of information on the house and how to get there. We would recommend it to friends.
