'ACADIA ESCAPE' A DOWNTOWN HOME CLOSE TO EVERYTHING

Bar Harbor House Rental Photos and Description

3 bedroom, one bath, sleeps 6-8 plus bonus youth room

Our home is on a quiet side street, one block off Main Street. Your vacation begins the moment you pull your car into the driveway, no need to search for parking. Acadia National Park and all that Bar Harbor has to offer are within walking distance. The well equipped kitchen which opens to a large backyard, spacious dining room, and living room, equipped with 42 in flat screen T.V.,VCR/DVD, stereo, card and board games are on the first floor. Upstairs has 3 bedrooms, 2 with queen beds, one with 2 twin beds, bathroom, plus a youth room with a pack and play. In the backyard relax as you watch the children play, or enjoy a game of badminton, fire up the gas grill for a cookout and enjoy your lobster dinner in the fresh salt air. After dinner walk two block to listen to a concert in the Village Green or browse the many shops and boutiques, another two blocks to watch the sunset over the ocean before coming home to tuck in to rest up for another day of relaxation and adventure.

Acadia Escape remodeled in 2008 : We have done lots of updates to our recently purchased home. All windows and doors have been replaced with energy efficient low e glass. An energy efficient furnace was also installed this year to help with green house gases and for your comfort. The electrical system has also been completely updated to all safety codes including smoke detectors in every room for your safety. In the bathroom the tub/shower enclosure has been newly tiled. The hardwood floors in the living area and the California pine floors on the entire second floor have all been sanded and refinished. As have all the original wood doors.

2012 we have upgraded, we have put a 42 inch HDTV and new pull out couch in the living area, also new carpet in dining room and new flooring in the bathroom.

Tennis lessons available: August Lozano is a USPTA certified tennis professional. I have been a teaching pro at the Ellsworth Tennis Center for 10 years. In 2008 I was ranked #1 in the State of Maine in the 45 and over. In 2006 I was ranked # 1 in the 35's and the 45's. I would be happy to hit or give a lesson during your stay.

This is a nice house in a great location just a block or two away from the restaruants, museum and main square of Bar Harbor. Maryellen and Augie were a pleasure to deal with.

What more could you ask for? Multi-room house, two blocks from everything in downtown Bar Harbor, updated, immaculately clean and fresh, comfortable, with driveway parking, full electronic entertainment, games, complete cookware, washer/dryer, lots of hot water, even a deluxe barbeque grill...all at less than motel rates. On top of this, very friendly and reasonable owners, simple rental arrangements. There really isn't any reason to stay anywhere else (unless Acadia Escape is already booked).

The house is in the perfect location; walking distance to downtown and all necessary ammenities. The house is very homey and equipped with everything that you will need to make your stay wonderful. We highly recommend this property.

Acadia Escape was a great find in the perfect location for our week long girls trip. The listing description and images are very accurate...the house is spacious, exceptionally clean and very homey. The owners were very accomodating and provided all the amenities that may be needed during the stay.

The house is within walking distance from everything in town...the harbor, shops, restaurants/bars and park. It was so nice not to have to worry about parking or driving home after dinner/cocktails. In addition, the house is in very close proximity to Acadia National Park entrances (as well as multiple lobster pounds...yummy).

While in town we did the whale watching tour (saw lots of them), the aerial flight tour of the island (I would recommend it), hiking, biking, sunrise on Cadillac Mountain and much more.

I would recommend the house for anyone looking for a great, functional place to stay while in Bar Harbor. It was a real steal for the space and the location.

Our family of 5 (children ages 7, 5, and 18 mos) had a fantastic week staying at Acadia Escape in Bar Harbor. The house was more than big enough for all of us. It was very clean and comfortably appointed with nice fresh linens, etc. We enjoyed being able to walk into downtown and to the Shore Path. There is also a playground about two blocks away, which the kids all enjoyed. It was also an easy drive into Acadia National Park, not too far from the entrance that leads to Sand Beach. The owners are very nice and made sure we had everything we needed. I would definitely recommend this house to any family or group looking for a clean and comfortable place to stay in Bar Harbor.
