SURROUNDED BY ALL THE BEST TO SEE IN ACADIA NATIONAL PARK - WALK TO OTTER COVE

Bar Harbor Townhome Rental Photos and Description

Duplex, 1 Bedroom + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2-4)

Picture windows looking east, with views of Gorham Mountain and the meadow, make this home feel like it is in Acadia National Park, rather than merely surrounded by it.

In the afternoon, relax on your private back deck, watching songbirds and meadow wildlife. Or sit by the frog pond enjoying a good book and the clear Maine air. There's a large back yard, a hammock for lazy days and moonlit nights and when you're ready to hit the hiking, biking, kayaking, canoeing or garden trails we'll point you to the local favorites.

Acadia Meadow is stocked with fresh herbs and vegetables (in season) from our organic garden, books, including Maine authors, local guides and great area maps: we think, like the 'rusticators' of times past, you'll want to return to Acadia Meadow year after year.

Keywords: DUPLEX

Suitability:
  • Long-term Renters Welcome
  • pets not allowed
  • non smoking only
  • children welcome

I was born and raised in Bar Harbor and Tod grew up in Marin County, California. We owned and operated Bar Harbor Brewing Company and retired after selling the business in 2008. We love to garden, hike, bike, fish, gather wild mushrooms and berries and play tennis. I love to cook; creating dinner menus from the organic vegetables in Tod's garden is a highlight of each summer day. This summer Tod has taken a job as seasonal gardener at Thuya Gardens, a beautiful English Border Garden ten minutes from Acadia Meadow. I will be one of the volunteer ambulance drivers for the town of Mt. Desert this summer, and hope to train as EMT in the fall.

Suze purchased this townhome in 1992

We fell in love with the house and 2+ acre property. You can hike out your back door into Acadia National Park. The backyard opens out to a beautiful meadow teeming with wildlife. And yet we're 4 miles from downtown Bar Harbor.

Stars, stars and more stars at night. The night sky from the back yard adirondack chairs or hammock is the greatest show on earth. Wildlife, including deer, pileated woodpeckers, fireflies & hummingbirds can usually be seen regularly while relaxing on your back deck. Location is surrounded by the most wonderful places to explore in Acadia National Park - if you forget something, or want to come home for lunch, we're just around the corner. Free Island Explorer Bus stops outside your front door June 23 to October 13, 2014.

Acadia Meadow is the entire left wing of the house.

WONDERFUL!

  • 5 of 5
The other reviewers have already said it - this was a wonderful home-base for exploring Acadia Nat'l Park. The kitchen was fabulous, the whole place was clean and comfortable and very well appointed, the views were great (pics don't really do it justice), the location is between two park entrances so you can avoid the one-way park loop road much of the time, and the owners were great hosts - there for advice if you needed it, but provide all the privacy you could ask for. We loved the bonus gifts from the garden - so fresh and wonderful. We highly recommend it!

COZY, CUTE & CLOSE TO EVERYTHING!

Cozy, Cute & Close to Everything!
  • 5 of 5
My husband and I couldn’t ask for a better 1st experience to Maine! Suze & Tod were very welcoming and the house was exactly what we needed...a little privacy, but yet very close to everything! Shopping, sight seeing, tours, walking/hiking were all within 5-25 min, depending on where you go. We will recommend this place to our friends and family, and when we make it back to Maine, there is no question as to where we would stay! Thank you again Suze & Tod!

25TH ANNIVERSARY 2ND HONEYMOON

  • 5 of 5
Wow! Loved the house! Was everything that was advertised. The house was private with a field separating the back deck from the Acadia National Park. It was very private, exactly what was needed for a second honeymoon! The location was ideal, just a little over 3 miles from the center of Bar Harbor and within a few minutes of many activities in the area. Would highly recommend this to anyone considering a stay in beautiful Bar Harbor!

PERFECT HOME BASE FOR ACADIA

  • 5 of 5
We really enjoyed our stay at this cozy, comfortable, home-like vacation rental. Owners Suze and Tod are thoughtful hosts, and available to answer any questions you might have.
The main room, which includes the kitchen, dining area, and living room, is large, airy, and boasts a wonderful view of the adjacent meadow and a not-so-distant mountain. The bedroom and bathroom were also large; the queen bed was very comfortable and the bedroom closet was roomy. The kitchen was very well-stocked. Everytime I looked for something I needed for cooking, it was available, There were even some appliances I never expected, including a waffle iron, and an abundance of spices, some sugar, and flour. Suze and Tod also supply paper products, hand soap, and dish, dishwasher, and laundry detergents. Everything, from the laundry room to the kitchen, was sparkling clean. We also had access to a private deck--but we were so busy hiking and biking on the nearby trails, that we didn't avail ourselves of it. This was our first trip to Acadia, and we decided that this was the perfect location for exploring the park and the communities on Mt. Desert Island. Out the drive and right, and we were only about 10 minutes from downtown Bar Harbor; turning left got us to Northeast Harbor quite quickly too. We were close to three entrances to the park loop and an easy drive to dozens of trails and carriage roads. If we return to Acadia, we will definitely plan to stay here.
If you hike, we'd highly recommed the south ridge trail up Cadillac Mountain. The trailhead is about a mile south of Acadia Meadow, and we ranked this trail among our very favorites (and we've hiked all over the U.S. and some overseas). Both Bubbles were also worthwhile--we parked at the Bubble lot and hiked first the South Bubble and then backtracked and up the North Bubble--and finished up with Conner's Nubble. Another recommendation is the south ridge of Penobscot. Have fun!
