Perfect place for small families

  • 5 of 5
Our little family of three enjoyed a wonderful week at the Devon Cottage. The location to downtown Bar Harbor and Acadia National Park was perfect (a short walk and short drive, respectively). The house was very clean, cozy, and had all the amenities we needed. We loved having a Pack 'N' Play, high chair and baby gate to use for our one-year-old. Nina also let us borrow a stroller for afternoon walks to downtown Bar Harbor. We enjoyed the view of the Frenchman Bay from the porch in the afternoons and the gas grill for making dinners in at night. There's also a school immediately across the street with a field and playground. Nina was very responsive to any questions and was extremely helpful. It made for a stress-free week and a fabulous backdrop for our vacation. Thank you!

Bar Harbor Gem!

  • 5 of 5
My wife and two sons stayed at the Devon cottage for the week of the 4th of July. I can’t say enough good things about our stay and the cottage. First thing I will say is that the photographs don’t do the cottage justice. The living space seemed to be much bigger in reality then the photos. The four of us had plenty of space for the week of our stay. The cottage was very clean and well maintained. The kitchen is very well appointed and we didn’t need anything that wasn’t already there. It sits about a 5-10 minute walk from center of Bar Harbor and just across the street from a playground, which my kids enjoyed. There is a drive in garage which was greatly convenient for loading the car on the last day as it was raining. The bedrooms were amazing, the linens and layout etc, it was very convenient for us. The owners were both really cool and down to earth. I had a couple of questions that I texted and received prompt replies to. I would very highly recommend Devon Cottage if you are looking to stay in Bar Harbor and especially if you are looking for a kid friendly lodging. An amazing trip and very enjoyable experience.

Excellent Home/Perfect Location

  • 5 of 5
Extremely cute, clean house very close to downtown Bar Harbor. Owners are wonderful and live right next door. Acadia National park was beautiful and just minutes from the place. We went on Lulu's Lobster Cruise and the entire family enjoyed it and learned a great deal from the fantastic Captain John! Also had breakfast at 2Cats - just a short walk from the house. Quite delicious! Saw the sunrise on Cadillac Mountain and hiked Jordan Pond Trail; both great experiences! We were always happy to return to our home away from home in the evenings! Great place - would definitely stay again!

Nice place to call home while on vacation.

  • 5 of 5
The house was nice and clean and welcoming upon arrival. Beds were comfy and kitchen had anything you would need to eat in, which we never really did. We had great access to Acadia Park and all the sites within the area. Cleaning deposit was refunded very promptly upon departure.

Great retreat for hardworking people

  • 5 of 5
I stayed with my brother and a friend of his for a middle-aged guy's week away from work and home. What a great location. We stayed extremely busy with our landscape photography, kayaking, biking the carriage trails and hiking the mountains of Acadia. We were up every morning shooting sunrises of coastal cliffs, mountaintops and lighthouses. Our active days were followed by dinners out in Bar Harbor with drinks and an easy walk or drive back to Devon Cottage.

Devon Cottage was perfectly located just outside the bustle of downtown Bar Harbor. Easy to get to and from. The separate house from the owner's home provided privacy but also with a chance to get to know the owners who were very friendly and accommodating. They also own Jack Russell's Steak House...so if you're a good guest they may offer you desert and coffee on the house like they did us. The house was clean and had everything as advertised. I hope to return some time in the future.
