The home has lots of windows for plenty of natural light streaming through. The dining room can accommodate up to 12 people comfortably (for that lobster dinner!)

THE PICTURES DON'T DO YOUR HOME JUSTICE!!

The Pictures Don't Do Your Home Justice!!
  • 5 of 5
My family of 6 (which consisted of 3 adult couples) stayed at the Brewer Home for a week in August, and it made Bar Harbor seem even better than it normally is! No hotel would have been able to afford the conveniences that this lovely home did. On the evenings that we all got home late from long hikes, we were able to grill outside and not worry about making it to a restaurant on time. We never felt on top of eachother, and there was plenty of room for us all to spread out. We had one rainy day, and the women made a fabulous brunch in the kitchen that allowed all of us to cook and prep at once... it was fabulous. By the time 2pm rolled around, the rain had let up and we started our day... had we been in a hotel, we would have surely felt the day was wasted, but not here.
The home is equipped with just about everything you could need, which is very convenient. It was also very helpful that, after proof of flea medication, our cat Lucy was allowed to come along. There would have been no way she could have been left behind for an entire week, and she fell in love with the house, too... so many windows for her to look out of! :)
And while the pictures are nice in the description, they really don't depict how truly lovely this home is. It is very clean and nicely layed-out, and the cathedral ceiling in the living room is beautiful.
We have all been coming to Bar Harbor for YEARS, but this was our first time renting a house instead of separate hotel rooms. Not only was it a painless experience, but it surpassed all of our expectations with the quality of time we were all able to share with eachother, while still NOT feeling like we were cramped in too close. We are a close family, but we were a little worried that the wrong house could leave us feeling claustrophobic. Not a worry here! We'll surely rent this home again, as we visit BH nearly every year. Meredith's home let us pretend that we actually lived there, and we seriously couldn't have had a better time. A++!

GREAT HOUSE

  • 5 of 5
This house was great! Nice, quiet location. About a 10-15 min drive to downtown Bar Harbor and about a 10 min drive to a couple of Acadia National Park entrances. There were lots of magazines, cookbooks and regular books to read plus cable TV with a DVD player and a CD player. We had
3 couples plus a toddler and there was plenty of room for all of us! Washer & dryer was a nice plus. The owner was great and responded to our questions quickly. There was a binder with local recommendations that was very helpful. I would like to go back in September when the leaves are changing!!!

GREAT HOUSE! GREAT LOCATION!

  • 5 of 5
This is our second time staying in this home, we had a great vacaction, only one problem went too fast!! Found the house to be very comfortable, loved the kitchen, especially the stove. The kids found the swimming hole and did some exploring in the woods. We had a couple questions regarding local information and the homeowner called back promptly. Lots to do, went to Acadia National Park, did some hiking, and had some lobster, couldn't ask for a better place to be. Thank you for sharing your home with our family.

FANTASTIC PLACE TO MAKE MEMORIES!

  • 5 of 5
My family and I stayed here Aug. 7-14, 2010 and had a fantastic time! The house is delightful, and the wooded setting is a great escape from the busy world outside. Everything about our stay was just perfect! It felt more like we were staying as guests in a friend's home rather than just renting a property for the week. We loved all the outdoor activities that the area provides, and loved even more having a nice home to bring our tired bodies back to! We also loved that our little dog could come too! What a great place!

THE PERFECT MAINE VACATION

  • 5 of 5
This house was just perfect for our family vacation. Meredith made us feel right at home. We arrived to an immaculate house, with the dining room table set, very elegantly, ready for us to enjoy dinner. I cannot say enough about Meredith’s hospitality, she greeted us on the second day of our vacation; and assisted us with planning our daily activities. She has a nice resource book available, neatly organized, to aid with all your travel needs. What was so nice for us was the ease in reaching Meredith by phone. We unfortunately landed in the Mount Desert Isle ER, with our son's teenage friend, whose parents were in NJ. Being 9 hours away from home, Meredith assisted us with everything we needed, as well as called us the next day to check on our son's friend. It was very comforting to know we had a "friend" to reach out to during our time in need! We had a party of 9, with one child being handicapped, in a wheelchair. It was nice having 1 bedroom, bathroom, kitchen, dining room, living room, and access to the porch, right on the first floor; aside from the bathroom, it was very convenient managing the wheelchair! We really enjoyed the location of the house, being in the woods, it was very peaceful; and was perfect for star-gazing. Every morning we would enjoy sitting on the porch, with our cup of coffee, and being greeted by a humming bird. I cannot say enough about how nice our family vacation was! I'm really looking forward to visiting Maine, and this home, again.

PERFECT STAY IN MAINE

  • 5 of 5
I've stayed in this particular home 4 times. It is spacious, decorated lovely, beautiful views of the porch, and a short drive to town. If you are looking to be in the midst of Bar Harbor, but still have peace and quiet - this is the place.
