Overview

Bar Harbor Estate Rental Photos and Description

6 Bedrooms, 3.5 Bathrooms, Sleeps 12

''''La Maisonette'', circa 1886, is a beautiful 3,400 square foot, 6 bedroom home in downtown Bar Harbor nestled within Bar Harbor?s national historic district with a view of Frenchman's Bay and a beautiful 1/2 acre back yard.

Located on West Street, you are a short stroll to restaurants, shops, bike and kayaking rentals in the downtown area. Acadia National Park is just minutes away by car or rent a bike and walk to the shuttle in downtown Bar Harbor which will take you into the park to spend a day riding the Carriage Trail.

At low tide, walk around the corner and enjoy the unique experience of crossing a sand bar to Bar Island or simply walk along the sand bar collecting shells and photographing the spectacular views.

With its shingle style architecture, La Maisonette offers charm and character with high ceilings, detailed woodwork, a staircase tower, a solarium and fireplaces.

La Maisonette is fully furnished and offers a wrap around enclosed porch that provides a brief view of the ocean, 6 bedrooms that sleep 12, 3 full and one partial bathroom, WiFi, and HD TV, we believe it offers everything you need to enjoy a wonderful Bar Harbor vacation.

Why Angelique Bennett chose Bar Harbor

We began coming to Bar Harbor when our first child was born. We fell in love with the town and Acadia National Park. We now have four children and are thrilled to own this beautiful home so they can grow up visiting Bar Harbor

Guestbook comments from the owner

Thank you for the wonderful week we had together in Bar Harbor. Spending time with my mom, sister, aunts and cousins far exceeded my expectations. La Maisonette is the perfect home for sharing stories of the past and making so many more fun memories. The 10 of us were so comfortable in your home - it is the perfect layout and the fully stocked kitchen was great.

Pick this one - it is great!

  • 5 of 5
This is a great house for a larger group. It is close to all activities in Bar Harbor, walking distance to restaurants and shopping. Another positive is off street parking and it easily accommodates a large group. It has several gathering areas as well as a large kitchen. The bathrooms are small but functional. It was a wonderful place to stay and we enjoyed our visit and would certainly come back again.

Superb walkability to sea, shops, and food

  • 4 of 5
This house is designed for a large group (see below for a bathroom caveat). It has the greatest view of Frenchman's Bay of all the private properties on the street. It's a very short walk to all you might want for a coastal vacation -- ocean front, shopping, good dining and great seafood and pizza.

I would recommend confirming the date of arrival with the owner a day ahead of arrival to just make sure all is ready and access to the property goes without a hitch.

I traveled here with my parents, my children and my grandchildren. There was plenty of space for all of us -- even enough space to get away from one another when needed (which we needed).

The "big" kitchen -- as opposed to the one next to it -- is a chef's dream, unless she needs space to store food supplies or tries to remember which drawer or cupboard a utensil or pot was taken from. (Although ugly, a label on cupboards and drawers in the kitchen could help visitors put things back where they belong and help us find what we need without going through the massive space.)

Bedrooms are all upstairs, which are accessed from two staircases -- one a very grand one near the front entrance and the second from the kitchen area. Bedrooms are all a good size, some with twin beds, most with double or larger. The difficulty here comes with bathroom locations.

There is a half bath downstairs, which is easily accessible to all. There is an older full bath upstairs that is off a main hallway near where the kitchen stairs go up. The other two full baths are only accessible from a bedroom. One is between to adjoining bedrooms and not accessible from the hallway. The other is in a private bedroom that adjoins another bedroom, both of which can be entered from the hall -- as long as you don't mind going through someone's bedroom.

There are electric heaters in closets throughout the house that mean you can use the sunporch in perfect comfort almost year round -- and you should do this. It's the absolute best view in the house and a lovely mix of old, new, sea, and people-peeping.

We had a major glitch when we arrived. The owners were very responsive. In the end, our four generations enjoyed their time here.

Two marvelous weeks in Maine!

  • 5 of 5
This is a lovely home, and is ideal for a large group. There were 12 of us, including small children, and we enjoyed have multiple areas to read, watch TV, play games, and just chill. The location so close to "The Bar" was perfect for digging up crabs and finding starfish at low tide. And the beds are some of the best we've ever had in a rental home. In fact, our children are planning on buying the same mattresses! Having two refrigerators and two washing machines/dryers was also a plus. We would definitely stay there again.

Memorable Vacation

  • 5 of 5
My family and I spent a wonderful week here at La Maisonette. Our group was large and multi-generational. The house was large enough that no one was tripping over anyone. I loved the 2 kitchens and 2 washers and dryers. Many afternoons were spent on the front porch. Being able to walk downtown was a definite plus. My daughter got engaged just after the fireworks on the fourth. Bar Harbor holds many favorable memories for our family and we will be back. :)

Best House in Town

  • 5 of 5
Lots of room and everything was perfect for a large group. There are two kitchens and two washers and two dryers. Need to say more? Everything was perfect and we walked everywhere. My only negative comment has to do with one of the stores on the street. The Maine Lobster starting yelling at someone in our party because a Christmas ornament fell and broke accidentally. The blonde clerk was loud and vulgar and after that our party of eight adults walked past that store. BIG MISTAKE since we were all spending lots of money.

You might want to bring post-it notes to stick on the bedrooms. It took a few days for us to find our way about the huge house! Rent this house and you won't regret it. It's a gem and so is the owner!! : ) As a matter of fact, two couples on the sidewalk asked me how to rent the house!!

The Best Rental House on the Island

  • 5 of 5
If you are looking for a large, perfectly located, and comfortable house in the Bar Harbor area - La Maisonette is the best available. It is located just a few blocks from most everything in the center of town so you never have to use a car and search for parking places. The Island shuttle stops near the house and can take you to the main places in Acadia. The back yard is large enough for outside games and parking several cars. With one large kitchen and one small kitchen, there is plenty of room to prepare meals for a large group. Large formal dining room and two tables in the breakfast room for the kids. The front screened porch is awesome for sipping early morning coffee and looking out at Frenchmen's Bay. There is so much room in the house that everyone can spread out for different activities. The kids loved going exploring in this neat historical house. Our family loved La Maisonette and highly recommend it to others.
