Glorious sunny rooms. Beautiful colors. Newly renovated. Mint condition. Sky lights. Spectacular spa quality designer shower. This is your home away from home right in the center of the hustle and bustle that's Bar Harbor during the summer season. While others circle the town looking for that elusive parking spot, you slip quietly into your own spacious three car accommodation, a few yards from the center of town, across from the Village Green where every night is a summer festival. Don't feel like making breakfast? Delicious blueberry pancakes await right across the courtyard at Cafe This Way where regulars return for scrumptious breakfasts and legendary dinners. Then stroll along the garden, turn right and check out the shops, something for every taste and every budget. Go for a scenic cruise around the island, see a whale, hop aboard a four masted schooner, eat some lobsters, swim in pristine lakes or brave the ocean, hike the trails, bike the carriage roads. Welcome!
I cannot rave too much about the Hideaway. In fact, I was tempted not to review it - I'm worried about a mad dash on the place that makes it hard for me to book it next time!
It is a lovely home in a perfect location. The description is 100% accurate - wonderful light, comfy rooms, beautiful spa shower, huge kitchen, comfy fireplace, great work desk.
I visited the Hideaway late Dec through early Jan to hunker down in a comfy place, go on hikes in the day and walk to town in the afternoons and evenings. This place was perfect. Everything is brand new and spanking clean, and the glorious windows let in wonderful light, but the Hideaway is still nestled in a corner off the main path so you don't feel like your in the middle of town (even though you are!). I could walk to the grocery store, restaurants, the movie theater, even the YMCA is close by. Eagle Lake is 3 miles up the road on which the Hideaway sits.
There's a great TV, cable and many, many DVDs. Flawless internet access.
The owner is next door - very sweet to check on me, but completely respectful of privacy. She's quite the charmer!
I would stay at the Hideaway any time - it is by far one of the top homes I've ever rented. I didn't think anything could make Bar Harbor better, but the Hideaway does. Fantastic! Highly recommended.
I planned a road trip with my husband and another couple and stopped off in Boston for 2 nights, what a nightmare place, I was praying the entire way to Bar harbor that the place would be much better, and OMG, what an excellent place to stay, right in the center of town, just park the car and you are on your way. We were greeted with a basket of goodies, so surprised, the place had a really big shower/bathroom area, bed rooms were very nice, clean, had a sitting outside area, big kitchen, living area, had everything you need. So nice, I would recommend this place to anybody. Thanks Ann for the lovely place. Out of the 3 places we stayed that week, this place was by far the best. Received security deposit as mentioned in contract in a timely manner.
The "Hideaway" is perfect. It is peaceful, with gardens and outdoor seating and bright, updated rooms AND right in the middle of Bar Harbor. The house is large with skylights, and very clean with bright painted walls and updated appliances and furnishings. . Downstairs there is a large eat in kitchen, 1/2 bath with washer and dryer, living room with a wonderful assortment of dvd's and cable tv and great internet access. Upstairs the queen bedroom we chose was very comfy. The huge bathroom had a tiled walk -in shower with a skylight and double sinks which was wonderful especially after a long day of hiking.
The Hideaway location is close to everything Bar Harbor has to offer. We enjoyed Cafe This Way, the farmers' market, Morning Glory for desserts, a grocery store, restaurants shops, the harbor area and trails.
Ann, the owner, was easy to work with on the reservation and she was gracious and thoughtful.. Her personal note and welcome basket upon arrival was a lovely touch. We already booked again for next year.
The location of this property, hidden in the center of downtown Bar Harbor, is fantastic. The house itself is also terrific with a large living room, eat in kitchen and upstairs bathroom. Our family was very impressed with the many amenities provided throughout.
The bedrooms are not large like the rooms mentioned earlier, but they are fine. The house and yard are obviously kept in very good condition. Having your own private parking right in town is a bonus.
We stayed here for a week, and we had no complaints whatsoever! The location was perfect, the house was well stocked with everything! We were welcomed by a lovely note from Ann and a nice hamper to help us settle in. The garden was lovely to sit in. Even though you are round the corner from the village green and the hustle and bustle it was nice and quiet. Cafe this Way was just across from the house, so we were only footsteps away for breakfast. We couldn't have wished for a better place to stay! The owner, Ann, lived nearby and was only a phone call away if we needed anything (which we didn't!). We were sad to leave this lovely house, would highly recommend to anyone wishing to stay in the centre of Bar Harbor, but also likes the quiet. Loved it!
We LOVED this unit. It was convenient to everything. We walked to all the stores, all the eateries, the docks, the beach, the shore paths. The proprietor was the most thoughtful landlord I have ever had. She even left a basket with wine, cheese and chocolate on the table as a welcome. This place was clean, updated and came stocked with dishwasher detergent, toilet paper and paper towels. We did not need to bring a thing except our clothes. She even had beach towels we could use.
The washer and dryer were convenient. The bathroom was to die for with its walk-in shower, double sinks and lots of room. The kitchen was full size with eat-in area. The half bath on the main floor was a blessing.
We cooked out on her Weber grill one night with friends.
She has wi-fi, flat-screen TV and even long distance calling.
Our vacation could not have been better.
The Village Green Hideaway is located in the center of Bar Harbor, a popular and beautiful vacation spot on Mount Desert Island, Maine, surrounded by oceans, lakes, hiking trails, mountains and Acadia National Park. The Hideaway is within walking distance to shopping, movies, restaurants, entertainment, kayak rentals, sailing, bicycling, arts and crafts, Walk down to the pier and enjoy the harbor activity, take a whale watch trip, a sail on a six masted schooner, a cocktail cruise. Be pampered at one of five local spas. Bar Harbor has something to be discovered and enjoyed by people of all ages. Then retire to the privacy of your Hideaway, across the courtyard from Cafe This Way. Fire up the lobster pot and have your own cookout. Lobsters are plentiful on this island and you can buy them from local lobstermen or stores. Walk up to the corner and sample the wholesome foods and wares from the Alternative Market. Cross over to the Village Green and enjoy a free concert. Happy day
