Wonderful stay June 2014

  • 5 of 5
My family and I had a wonderful week stay from june 21-28 2014. The house was beautiful and very spacious. It has been kept immaculate. For my family, this house was in the perfect location, walking distance to town if we wanted to grab a bite to eat or do some shopping but on a quiet street. The kitchen is fully stocked with spices, pans, cups, dishes, whatever you would need. The bedrooms and bathrooms are spacious and full of plenty of towels. We would absolutely stay here again and recommend it. The owners are very organized and easy to work with.
I want to add that I choose my rentals based on reviews and although there are about 15 great reviews on here, there is a book full of many more in the house from happy families.
We look forward to staying here again.

Amazing time!

  • 5 of 5
The pictures don't do this house justice. This was our 5th time in Bar Harbor, and this house was by far the nicest, most spacious house we have stayed in. Plenty of space for entertaining, which worked well with other family members staying in nearby homes. The home was well set up for small children with an entire cabinet devoted to plastic plates, cups and bowls and a great play set in the backyard, along with a few toys and games in the house. The location worked well for us. A few blocks further out of town, which meant nice and quiet, but still easily walkable to everything. And just a few short blocks to our favorite restaurant, Poor Boy's.
The kitchen was stocked with every spice you could think of, and plenty of pots and pans. The only issue was it took us a few minutes to figure out the surround sound TV in the living room!
We will absolutely try to stay at this house again when we come back to Bar Harbor.

Location, convenience and comfort

  • 5 of 5
Tapley Cottage is truly your home away from home. The owners take pride in providing every amenity possible to allow guests to simply "unpack" and then "play"!

The home is locate in a quiet residential area close to a small playground and park. Within a half mile you are in the " thick of things" amongst cruise ship passengers in shops or hop on the convenient buses and head into any of a hundred spots along the national park lands.

This was our second stay at Tapley, the first time nearly three years ago. Guests have been good stewards of this lovely home as evidenced by the excellent working order of appliances and condition of the furnishings.

Our first visit was in September, when cooler breezes are plentiful and a blanket on the bed is comfy. This visit was in July, and higher than normal temperatures made the home slightly uncomfortable during the hottest parts of the day. Owners provided ample fans to help keep air moving and we learned to take long, AC car rides to keep us cooled off!

The owners respond quickly to questions about local info or about how to operate things, when necessary. They are prompt in returning security deposits and are very much "customer oriented".

When guests arrive, the home is very clean and welcoming. The house is well maintained and organized. We appreciated them adding carpet to the stairs as they tended to be slippery in stocking feet...although we loved the wood floors "au natural"!

We love Bar Harbor - this was our eighth visit to the area, and we will be back again. We will plan early for our next visit to make sure that Tapley Cottage is available. Take our advice: don't hesitate to book this home NOW if you are even thinking of going to BH!

Perfect for our family of five

  • 5 of 5
We loved this home - it was as described and more. It was clean, comfortable, and a great location. We are a family of five adults. We were able to walk to town for our meals (Cafe This Way and McKay's Public House were two of our many favorites), sit on the front porch to read and relax, and go on hikes and come back to a lovely home. The owners are easy to work with and we would stay here again.

Perfect Family Rental

  • 5 of 5
This was our second year staying at the Tapley Cottage and I hope there are many more to follow. The house itself is spotless and comfortable - it includes a great fenced in backyard with a playset for children, a family room with plenty of comfortable seating for everyone, three bedrooms including a large master with a great soaking tub and double headed shower, a large office and a fully stocked gourmet kitchen with a large dining table. We cooked a few meals, but the house is so conveniently located to town that most nights we walked to town and ate out. The location was key for us because we liked the proximity to town, but the quiet side street made for an easy nights sleep for our little ones.

We felt completely at ease while vacationing here even though we were traveling with two small children. There were baby gates on the stairs, a portable crib, high chair, booster seat, toys, bed rails, potty seats and more all available to us. It made our travel and stay there amazingly easy. There were even maps, tour books, menu guides and tourist information all laid out to peruse.

Acadia National Park is a quick drive away, with such a large variety of hiking trails and activities for everyone. I can't say enough good things about this house and our experience in Bar Harbor and the surrounding area. I only hope it's a tradition we can keep up for years.

Tapley Cottage is AWESOME

  • 5 of 5
This was our first vacation in the Bar Harbor area and our first use of Homeaway.com. Great overall experience! Tapley is an beautiful vacation home. Newer, open and airy. Liked that the 3 bedrooms were upstairs with laundry. Master Bath is beautiful..great shower! Lots of TVs. Location is perfect. Quiet neighborhood. Park the car in the driveway and walk into downtown Bar Harbor..so convenient. Close drive to Acadia Park entrances or take the free shuttle service! Every evening we walked to great restaurants including This Way Cafe, Side Street Cafe, shopping and ice cream parlors. Our teens had a blast rock climbing with Atlantic School of Rock Climbing (thanks Dane!) ! Tapley was SO CLEAN and had every amenity we needed! The owners even provided us with camp chairs upon our request as we were trying to cut down on items we had to travel with during our drive from PA. Great customer service, no hassles and an awesome location and home.Thank you for sharing your home with us Robin Sue and Wyman. Also, we went to Ellsworth Walmart to do our grocery shopping...maybe 30 minute drive, but had everything. Really, you can't go wrong with Tapley!
