My family and I moved to Bar Harbor 2 years ago and built this beautiful cape in a brand new neighborhood. We loved the location because it was just outside of town and afforded us the luxury of a quiet and private surroundings.

We have grown to love the island with all its treasures. There is so much to do here that we feel we haven't even scratched the surface. Of course there is the downtown area with the shops, sightseeing and great restaurants. But there are magnificent gardens, beaches and hikes galore. And the carriage trails are beyond fun.

I hope you enjoy your visit to Bar Harbor and are comfortable in our home.

Julie purchased this house in 2011

Our neighborhood is private and quiet. Soothing breezes and the sounds of the birds will give you the relaxing setting you desire for your vacation.

The house is just a 5 minute drive to the Acadia Park entrance and 10 minute drive to downtown. Right around the corner from our neighborhood is Pirates Cove Miniature Golf, Mainely Meat BBQ restaurant and Udder Heaven, the best ice cream store in Bar Harbor!

The water is visible from our neighborhood and in the morning you can hear the lobster boats in the distance. The breeze brings the ocean air to our windows.

Wonderful place for a family to stay.

  • 4 of 5
We have a large family and this home worked out wonderfully well for us. The sleeping space and living spaces were more than adequate. We were able to put the kids to bed and enjoy the evening or send them outside to play in the yard.

The location was great - very convenient to both Acadia National Park, Bar Harbor as well as the attractions in Ellsworth.

Based on our experience with this home we would do it again.

I would stay here again!

My thoughts on this wonderful house...

Cons-We had a hard time finding the house. I couldn't find an exact address on any of our paperwork or emails. I thought from the verbal directions given we would find it without issue but beware there are two Mainely Meats on the Island and that totally threw us. I had to call the owner, once we got the address it worked out. Upon arriving the Internet didn't work, I had to contact the owner again, apparently, the password had changed. Once again, the owner was responsive and helpful and we got it working fairly quickly. Probably the biggest thing was that the tv pictured in the downstairs sofa room was missing. My kids were bummed about that since they wanted to hangout down there.

Pros- It's in a very quiet relaxing area off one of the main roads.Beautiful wooded area with a stream and a few deer out in the evening. Minus a huge stain on the upstairs carpet, it was VERY clean. Appliances were spotless. The air mattress was handy and clean. Sheets, towels and included supplies were plentiful and easy to find. It was very nice to have a good amount of room. At the price we paid, I would say that if you don't mind not being in-town Bar Harbor, this place is a steal and a very relaxing retreat after a long day. Go ahead and feel good about renting it.

Just an FYI- I know we were there early in the season but lots of places close early up there. We had a hard time finding places to eat in the evening.

Nice property

  • 4 of 5
This was a nice house for our vacation. It had lots more space than we thought and was in good shape. It was difficult to find the house since we never received the physical street address, but it was mostly clean and our family enjoyed our stay.

The house was lovely. Just what we were hoping for. Very new and clean. Tons of space. Very relaxing. Nice spot just outside of bar harbor. Everything was just as pictured except maybe a bit larger in person. We had a wonderful stay.

The wolf Pack

  • 4 of 5
9/4/2013 We had a wonderful time here, it looks small, but when you get inside we had more than enough room for four adults and all the stuff we bought. We were about a mile from eating out and had a great time at the mini-golf course.of course the best thing for us was Acardia National Park, with we spent everyday hiking around. Bar Harbor was easy to get to and it was nice to come back to a quiet place to rest our heads. The kitchen has everything we needed and beds were very comfortable. Thanks for a fantastic vacation.

Our neighborhood is private and quiet. We have lots of trees and you are bound to see some wildlife while you are staying here. One of the best features of our property are the wild Maine blueberries on our road. Lots to pick and boy are they good!

We are a short drive to Acadia National Park. So much to do in the park - hiking, biking, picnics, sightseeing, etc.

After a long day in the park, you can drive another couple minutes to the downtown area and have dinner at one of the many fantastic restaurants. The downtown area is setup for visitors to easily walk the entire area in a short time. Lots of cute stores to bring home souvenirs.

Or, you can go home and have the option of eating in or you can walk to a great bbq place, Mainely Meat and right next door is the best ice cream store, Udder Heaven. Before or after dinner & dessert, a short walk across the street to a local favorite, Pirates Cove miniature golf course.
