The Tapley Cottage is perfect! Loved it!

Our family loves Bar Harbor and this was our third visit. We were in the house during an unusually warm weather week for Bar Harbor. The house was perfect for us - we had 5 adults and 2 young children (3 year old and 3 month old). The house provides an excellent location and is just a short walk from town. It is also in close proximity to plenty of restaurants. Every single thing in the house is brand spankin' new, the kitchen is huge, there is a great yard with playset out back, the front porch is relaxing, etc.
The pictures on the website don't really do this place justice. It sounds cliche but it's true. I only had two minor issues - the master bath may or may not be totally private (one of the windows has no curtain - just some tiny shutters on the bottom and an open window on top). It made us a little paranoid - like the neighbors would think we were exhibitionists (ha ha!). Truthfully, we just had to let it go as there's probably no way the neighbors could see in. The other issue is that the grill is very pretty to look at but did not totally work - there were probably 12 burners total and only 2 worked so grilling took a lot longer than expected the one night we used it.
I would never expect perfection with any rental but this place is as close as it gets. The house is perfect for a family and has a ton of room. We hated to leave but will be back next year and will definitely stay at the Tapley Cottage if we don't have our own place up there by then!
