LEDGELAWN COTTAGE - BAR HARBOR, COMFORTABLE SPACIOUS VICTORIAN

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.

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!

EVERTHING YOU NEED IN BAR HARBOR/ACADIA

  • 5 of 5
We loved this house and the location. It had everything we needed to make our second two week trip to Bar Harbor and Acadia a success. The house is well laid-out and has everything you need on your vacation here. The main street in Bar Harbor is literally a quarter mile away and we walked there almost everyday. Entrance to Acadia National Park is also a strone's throw away making access to the Park, Cadillac Mtn, Park Loop Road etc very easy and fast. With the windows open the house is very cool, even on warm days. Julie was an absolute dream to work with. We love this area so much that my wife and I are thinking of retiring here so perhaps I'll make an offer on the house!!!! If I were to provide a few minor negatives I would only caution that with the windows open, at times during the night you can here people return to their cars or walking home from Bar Harbor. Being so close, many folks park along the street and the street serves sort of as a cut through around the main street. This was not a significant problem however especially when measured against being so close to ..... everything. Finally, we had a few rainy days and having another TV would have been helpful. All in all however an A+..... don't hesitate to rent this house.

THE LEDGELAWN VICTORIAN

  • 5 of 5
Beautiful home in great location! Very charming and comfortable with two porches and great backyard to relax. Kitchen was large and fully stocked -- that's if you decide to cook--after all, there are so many wonderful restaurants and shops just steps away in the town of Bar Harbor. There were 8 of us with a toddler and this house had plenty of room for everyone. The carriage roads and Cadillac mountain are just down the road, as well as the town pier. There is so much to do in Bar Harbor and this home is close to everything. The owner, Julie is a thoughtful host, and a pleasure to work with. We have rented several times on MDI, but this is our first time in Bar Harbor--the Ledgelawn Victorian is a new favorite.

YOUR HOME AWAY FROM HOME IN BAR HARBOR!

  • 5 of 5
Thanks to Julie and Paul the tone was perfectly set for a family gathering in Bar Harbor. We had 7 people with ages from 8 to 78 in spacious yet cozy accommodations. The owners have really gone out of their way to make sure everything you need is already there; for example laundry baskets, spare batteries, grilling spices, umbrellas, plenty of towels and so much more. We have rented and stayed in locations spanning the globe and never felt more at home. The location is on a quiet street yet perfect for walking into town. You are right around the corner from the Village Green for easy access to the buses. There are a number of shops, restaurants, and museums footsteps away. We highly recommend 30 Ledgelawn for any group looking to enjoy Bar Harbor and Acadia National Park.
