Overview

Bar Harbor House Rental Photos and Description

House, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 4)

Rocko's Cottage is located on a side street in the downtown area of the beautiful island town of Bar Harbor. We are pet friendly for your well mannered four legged friends. Rocko is actually our 7 lb Dorkie. (Dachshund/Yorkie)

You will be within walking distance of over 25 restaurants ranging from fine dining to family fare. Bicycle rentals, kayaking trips, and unique shops galore are all within minutes of your front door and yes we can tell you which of these places welcome pets. Walk the shore path or across a natural sand bar (actually a glacial deposit) to visit beautiful Bar Island. Never have to worry about parking your car or enjoying a cocktail and then driving.

Rocko's Cottage was built in 2005 and is tastefully and comfortably furnished. You will find everything that you need to enjoy your stay. The kitchen is equipped with all the necessities of life, and the linens are all in good condition. The open floor plan actually makes our cottage appear much larger inside. It must be noted that the bathroom does not have a tub but does have a nice 4 ft. shower and for your convenience there is a stackable washer and dryer. This is a great house and location for people that travel with pets or just one or two couples or a small family that want to stay in the heart of town. Once you visit us you will be sure to return again and again.

The owners live and work locally and we are always only a phone call away if there is a problem. Welcome to our home and enjoy your stay....

Loved it here. Right in the center of town. Easy access to everything and being able to wash my clothes and relax as needed. Perfection.

I can't say enough great things about rocko's cottage. It was a delight ! Perfect location, great parking, lovely home with all the conveniences, and it was a great spot for our pugs. A short walk to anything and a quiet place to come home to after exploring for the day. I would highly recommend this to anyone traveling to Bar Harbor.

Great location

  • 5 of 5
We rented this cottage in early July and it was perfect for all our needs. Very clean, comfortable, user friendly, appreciated the ac. We parked our car in the driveway the day we arrived & didn't use it again until we left a week later. Walked to the village green and used the shuttle service to get any where we wanted to go in the park, including with our bikes. Lovely walks in town for dinner & shopping. Walked our dogs along the shore path & to the park down the street. Great location, Lisa is very friendly and accommodating. Would rent again for sure!

Great vacation.

  • 5 of 5
Rented Rocko's Cottage mid June. A comfortable home and a great location. Bar Harbor is a wonderful place as well if you're taking your dog. Just about every restaurant in town it seemed had an outside area and were more than willing to accommodate our dog and most brought him a water bowl. From Rocko's cottage the whole town is accessible on foot in 15 minutes.

As for the cottage--a large kitchen with all the conveniences. Two nice bedrooms. Parking off the street. A grassy area for the dog. The owners were very helpful and accommodating and the price was great. It was our second time to Bar Harbor and we'll probably be back within the next couple years and this cottage would be a great place to rent again.

Cozy Getaway

Rocko's is the perfect place to stay and the owner is very helpful. The cottage is exactly like the pictures, very comfy. In-town location is a big plus, just blocks from all the great stores, especially Bark Harbor if you are an dog or cat owner.

We've been coming to bar harbor for over twenty years and now we take our dog with us because of the pet friendly people here. The house is beautiful, clean and convenient to everything downtown. Very Quaint and Quiet. The dog also loved the house and taking walks to the shore path which is close. We'll be back!!!
