Overview

Bar Harbor House Rental Photos and Description

Ledgelawn Cottage, a nineteenth century beauty on Bar Harbor's historic Ledgelawn Avenue, is steps from all the attractions of downtown and five minutes from Acadia National Park. Stroll to the village green, fine restaurants and quaint specialty shops, the Abbe Museum, Shore Path, free Island Explorer bus, tennis courts, playground and wading pool. Just a mile to Acadia National Park and the famed Kebo Valley Golf Course. We comfortably accommodate up to eight guests in this spacious family home, decorated with a blend of new and antique furnishings. Ledgelawn Cottage offers guests 3,000 square feet of living space on two floors.

Enter the house through the large enclosed front porch with ample seating, the perfect spot to relax with your morning coffee and plan the day's adventures. Once inside the central entrance hall, you will see the spacious living room to your left, with comfortable seating and large flat screen HDTV, home theater speakers, and DVD player. To your right is the reading room, well stocked with travel guides and maps, a table and chairs for studying the many brochures and area menus, shelves of books for children and adults, and a recliner for dozing or reading a good book. Old-fashioned pocket doors lead from the reading room into the sun-filled dining room, with lots of room for family meals or playing board games from the corner china cabinet.

Crossing the hall past the powder room, you will find yourself in a large, fully stocked kitchen blending antique charm with modern amenities. Every effort ha been made to ensure that guests have all they need to prepare meals for both indoor and outdoor dining.

Just past the kitchen is a sunny hallway leading to the laundry and shower rooms. A washer and dryer, drying rack, laundry baskets and detergent, ironing board and iron are provided. The separate shower room provides guests with a convenient place to wash up upon returning from hiking or biking in Acadia. Shelves hold fluffy towels, and a hairdryer and variety of soaps are provided.

Four steps down from the rear hallway is the charming patio room. Surrounded by antique glass windows and featuring a brick floor, this large space has comfortable outdoor furniture for relaxing, as well as a table with wooden dining chairs and a cooling ceiling paddle fan. Just outside the back door is the gas grill, and a picnic table is placed in the shade across the big fenced backyard.

The second floor has four comfortable bedrooms with a range of bed sizes. The master bedroom has a king-sized bed with memory foam mattress. There is a room with a queen-sized bed, a room with a double brass four-poster, and a room with two twin beds. A pack-and-play and a wooden toddler bed are available upon request.

While we hope our visitors come to Ledgelawn Cottage to relax, we also provide a second-floor office equipped with computer, multi-function printer, and high speed internet Wi-Fi which is available throughout the house.

A skylit full bath with shower tub, towels, hairdryer and soaps completes the second floor.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Thank you for sharing your beautiful home. It was so convenient and welcoming on every level. My 84 year old mother (who was a home economics teacher) commented that it's the best equipped place that she has ever rented.

For me, it was the perfect place to gather our grown daughters from all over the country for a precious few days of family bonding with our extended family.

Perfect Location

  • 4 of 5
The house was spacious and in a perfect location! Stayed for a girls (ages from 40-50;s) weekend and there was lots to do both in Acadia as well as around town.It was everyone's first trip to Bar Harbor and it was spectacular. We had amazing Fall Folliage even after Columbus Day weekend.

Julie was a pleasure to work with in terms of responsiveness, clarity of communication and helpful local suggestions.

Would highly recommend and wouldn't hesitate to book again!

Great House, Perfect Location

  • 5 of 5
There really is not a lot I can add to previous reviews. We stayed with extended family ranging in age from 1 to 61. The house is large and extremely well equipped for adults and children of all ages. Amenities that were available to us with a 1 and 3 year old were a portable crib, toddler bed, books and toys, small step stools so the toddler could reach the sink etc. and high chair. There were also many books for adults, tons of tourist info such as guides, maps and even restaurant menus. There is a great large couch that easily fits 4 adults comfortably and large screen TV in living room. They really had everything you could need for a wonderful stay. The house is a charming older home in excellent condition with lots of character and charm combined with modern amenities - they even have a computer and printer for your use, as well as WiFi.

As others said the location was perfect - a couple of blocks to downtown, so no hassle trying to find parking in town, just a quick walk - and also close to Acadia, an absolutely beautiful place especially with all the fall colors.

Julie was a dream to work with, going out of her way to recommend specific restaurants, hikes and other things to do for all ages. She was always extremely quick to respond to all emails. We couldn't have been happier with the ease of the planning or the experience once we arrived. You won't be disappointed in this property or its owner.

Perfect Place for a Girls Trip

  • 5 of 5
We rented the house for a girls trip - 6 girls in their late 20's/early 30's. The location was perfect. It was walking distance to tons of restaurants, shopping, and bike rental spots plus it was convenient to Acadia National Park and all of its major attractions (hikes, biking trails, beaches). We had more than enough space. The house was well stocked with towels, books and maps on hiking, cookware and seasonings - even had plasticware for picnics. The owner was a great to work with. She responded quickly to emails and was flexible when we needed to add an extra night. The exterior of the house isn't the cutest on the block but the house was well maintained, and we'd highly recommend it.

Activities: We rented bikes and kayaks from the place on 48 Cottage Street. We biked from the rental shop to Jordan Pond House, which is a great restaurant with awesome views and a great atmosphere. We kayaked with a guide in Somes Sound. We hiked Precipice trail to the Champlain Mtn Summit and caught the sunrise on Cadillac Mtn. It was worth getting up early and I'd hike it if I could do it again.

Fave restaurants included: Travelin Lobster (not really a restaurant but we ate there and LOVED it! So cheap too), McKays, Sidestreet Cafe, Fathom, Cherrystone's, and Jordan Pond House (get the Chai!). We all had different faves but I'd say the musts are the Travelin Lobster and Jordan Pond House. The only restaurant we didn't love was the Bar Harbor Inn but it has good views so I'd be willing to go back for a drink.

The house was a great home base for all of these activities. Couldn't have picked a better location!

Excellent choice

  • 5 of 5
We had a wonderful stay at Ledgelawn Cottage which I will get to in a minute but first I wanted to warn HomeAway travelers that I was sent a phishing email and almost lost $1,000 because of a criminal who had hacked into either my email or the homeowner's email. I urge you to only contact HomeAway homeowners through the HomeAway email system and never respond to a personal email unless you are 100% sure it is from the homeowner. Learn from my experience!

On to my review...Julie was a pleasure to work with and the house was exactly what we needed. A group of 6 of us stayed for 3 nights in early June and we were very pleased with the house and its amenities. We loved the front porch as well as the character of the house. It was well-stocked with just about everything we needed, and it was incredibly spacious. The house is ideally located walking distance to just about everything we wanted to do. I would definitely rent this house again and hope we can return. One item to note that was also noted in a previous review is that the street is kind of busy and if you are staying in a front bedroom I'd recommend the use of a fan instead of keeping the windows open. The street noise did bother me at night but it didn't ruin my stay. If I had just closed the windows and used the fan it would have been fine. Overall it was a wonderful house and the amenities are top-notch. I urge you to give this property consideration for your stay in Bar Harbor. You won't be disappointed.

Highligt of our Trip

  • 5 of 5
Our extended family recently visited Maine to share our youngest daughter's last Family Weekend at Bowdoin College. It was a great excuse for "family bonding" with a rare opportunity for our 3, young adult daughters to share precious time with the matriarchs of both sides of our family. So we decided to extend the vacation by visiting Acadia National Park.

The park was spectacular, leaves beautiful and Bar Harbor offered many interesting restaurants with wonderful seafood. So I was surprised that I consistently received feedback something to the effect of "you picked an awesome house!"

My interpretation of this feedback is that Ledgelawn cottage provided a comfortable and convenient place for our family to share our journey. It is welcoming on every level, well equipped and convenient to both the town and park. In other words, it created an opportunity for informal adventures that resulted in relationship building

The owners were attentive to detail... everything ran smoothly from selecting their home from via a website (e.g. what you see if what you get), through the reservation process, to having everything you need to enjoy the stay.

I encourage you to consider Ledgelawn cottage for you own adventure. Bon voyage....

Perfect Wedding Week stay

  • 5 of 5
This lovely and comfortable home was the perfect place for family to gather and prepare for our son's wedding. The location is terrific, and having space to welcome guests from afar was really wonderful. Having a well-appointed kitchen for cooking worked so well. Even though Bar Harbor restaurants are close by, it was fun to have family meals, too. The thoughtful attention to detail in this spotless house is fantastic. We highly recommend!
