HOBO RETREAT

Salisbury Cove House Rental Photos and Description

Victorian Style 4 Bedroom built in 1874

1500 square feet home (that feels a lot bigger) that sleeps 8 and has everything you need to feel at home. One of the past owners was a sea Captain by the name of Mitchell. After he retired from the sea, he became one of the head gardner for the Rockefeller family estate. Mr. Rockefeller gave him some wild raspberry sprigs to transplant on this property and they still grow wild on the driveway side of the house. We refer to them as 'The Rockefeller Raspberries' and we think they make the BEST pies and raspberry drizzle over cheesecake!

Suitability:
  • Minimum Age Limit for Renters
  • pets not allowed
  • children welcome
  • non smoking only

About Bob O

Bob & Heather from Phoenix Arizona have 6 children and 5 grandchildren. Bob is a small business man and Heather is a physical therapist for more than 36 years. Our favorite past time is coming to Maine, hiking Acadia Park, exploring the Coast, and relaxing (and working!) on our cozy getaway home!

Bob O purchased this house in 2007

Why Bob O chose Salisbury Cove

While vacationing here in July of 2007, Heather saw this house with a 'For Sale' sign in the front yard. Since we were both really 'taken' with this Island, we backed up, took a peek at the house, and soon after, decided to invest in a getaway so different from the SouthWest. After returning home to Phoenix, we made an offer and the rest is history. We have a summer home 3013 miles door to door from our home in Phoenix, and look forward to each summer when we return to Maine!

What makes this house unique

Our home in Bar Harbor is the only place that we really feel like we are on vacation and while we are there, we stop thinking of our work and the problems of the world. It truly is a very relaxing place and you can never run out of new experiences and adventures on the Maine coast.

My First Trip to Bar Harbor ME

  • 4 of 5
The house was old and in the course of modernization, the layout was a bit strange but lovable. The upstairs should only be used by people less than 6 feet tall. The house was centrally located between Acadia Nat Park near Bar Harbor and the other 2 main harbors of NE and SW Harbor. My main gripe was that we couldn't drink the water. Maybe it said that in the ad..I didn't notice it. Again no big deal but we did have buy bottled water for coffee and taking pills (That what seniors do). I would love to go back there again and would stay in the same house but the drive is a pain.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review on the HoBo Retreat. We love the hear feedback form our renters so we can make improvements for future renters. The house was constructed in 1874 and there was an addition of a modern kitchen and downstairs bath completed in 2004. We have re-decorated all the rooms in the house in a coastal themes and due to the age of the original house the upstairs bedroom doors are shorter than homes of the modern age. Most people like that New England feel. I am 6'4" and I do have to watch the low doors when we are there. The home is on a filtered well system and although you can drink the water, we prefer to use bottled water for dinking and coffee. You will find the home has a very comfortable feel and we strive to make your stay enjoyable and memorable. If anyone ever has any question before or during there stay, feel free to call Bob or Heather anytime. FYI, the name HoBo Retreat derives from our first and last name initials. Heather O & Bob O.

Great Place for visiting Bar Harbor & Acadia

Great Place for visiting Bar Harbor & Acadia
  • 5 of 5
This house was perfect for my family while visiting Bar Harbor and Acadia. The house was spotless and everything was in working order. The owners were excellent with all communications and the entire process went smoothly. Everything you need is provided in the house and it is in a great location only a few miles from downtown and the National Park. We've rented from VRBO a few times now and each time the house has been everything as described and more, and this place was no exception. It is obvious to see that everyone who spends time here tries their best to keep it in great condition. Go ahead and rent this place with confidence - it is awesome.

Beautiful home

  • 4 of 5
My husband, daughter and I stayed at this home for a long weekend. The home is immaculately clean and well appointed. It is evident that a lot of care was given to decorating and appointing the house. The house is on a busy road with some traffic noise. It is well situated for access to all things on the island. While it was not an issue for our party of three, the layout of the house could provide some privacy challenges for some parties. Access to the upstairs is through a LL bedroom or through the 2nd floor bathroom. The properties owners were wonderful to deal with. I would recommend this property to others.

ABSOLUTELY PERFECT - WE WILL NEVER STAY ANYWHERE ELSE!!!

  • 5 of 5
We normally don't write reviews, but we had to share!!

This was absolutely the coziest, most-family oriented cabin we have ever stayed on VRBO.com - each of the 4 rooms has a SUPER neat theme to it, the layout of the place is perfect for multiple families and guests, the lot is spacious (about an acre with lots of grass), the back porch is perfect for happy hour, it is a 5 minute drive into Bar Harbor and Acadia National Park, the kitchen and dining area is huge, the living room couch/chair are comfy with cable and Wi-Fi, but MOST IMPORTANTLY the property owners (Heather and Bob) are the NICEST people you have ever met - just really solid great people that you can tell care about you, your family, and the property.

We will be coming back for years (or even DECADES) to come. THANK YOU BOB AND HEATHER!!!!

Very cool house

  • 5 of 5
Very well appointed house with a great kitchen. Charming and helpful hosts. The house offers a good central location for activities on and off the island, but is on the busy main road to Bar Harbor. We spent our time exploring Acadia National Park and the little harbor towns all around the island. Bar Harbor is lovely, but too "touristy" for our tastes.
