Larger bedroom with queen size bed and a third bedroom on the first floor.
This unit turned out to be very large. We stayed for a week in June 2010. The Homeaway description and photos do not adequately describe the rental property. Laurie (the owner) was very friendly and answered all e-mails promptly and respectfully. I was so pleased at what our family received for the price that we payed. I cannot imagine that their has been no reviews of this unit. I stayed here with my husband and three sons, ages 9, 13, and 14. Everything is within walking distance from the rental. The lower level has a huge livingroom and kitchen which are connected by a dining area that was perfect for 7 of us (my mother and father-in-law stayed the next street over) for games and meals. We cooked every single meal and never ran into a situation where we did not have what we needed. I was able to make homemade clam chowder, lobster, steamers and corn on the cob and didn't want for anything. Also on this level was a bedroom with a full sized bed, a laundry room, and a tiny library which had many books, games, and DVD's and video's. The yard was perfect for my 9 year old, who spent hours swinging on the very sturdy wooden swingset. I could see him perfectly from the kitchen window. We seemed to have one of the larger driveways and yards in the area. We were able to park 2 cars comfortably in the private driveway. The yard is completely fenced in with a sandbox, toys, grill and very large porch which can be accessed from 2 different areas of the unit. There is a large bedroom upstairs with a queen bed, and a whimsical children's room with two twin beds. Also on the second floor is a full sized bathroom with a tub/shower combination, The water pressure was fantastic and we never ran out of hot water even though all five of us showered every morning. My husband and I stayed very comfortably on the lower level bedroom in order to have privacy from the children at night. I could not have asked for more and hope and pray that Laurie allows us to rent this same week year after year. We are so pleased!
Our house is situated in a friendly residential neighborhood that is only a five minute walk to the ocean, as well as to Bar Harbor's intriguing shops and finest restaurants. We are only two miles from multiple park entrances. With its breath taking views, ocean drives and majestic landscapes, Acadia National Park is a must see destination. With on-site parking, walk to the local movie theaters. A quick ten minute walk to the historic mile long 'Shore Path' which is sprinkled with beautiful mansions and scenic views of Frenchman's bay. The town pier is five blocks away with sailing, sightseeing, fishing and whale watching boats. The transportation hub for the Island Explorer Shuttle Bus (free transportation to the whole island) is located around the corner from our house. A true family friendly home.
