"A PRIMA VISTA" IS A BEAUTIFUL GEM OF A HOUSE.

"A Prima Vista" is a beautiful gem of a house.
  • 5 of 5
This is a very beautiful and comfortable home in which to stay. The house is tastefully decorated and has a soothing & restful feeling all throughout.

The house, both inside and out, is definitely well kept.

If you enjoy cooking, the kitchen has all modern appliances that make this task enjoyable.

The house is conveniently located near a major supermarket, the Post Office, restaurants, the Waterfront, and the shopping district, which is the heart of downtown Bar Harbor --- all of which are in walking distance.

I highly recommend Morning Glory, a small charming bakery located on Riddick Street, that has a scrumptious selection of sandwiches, breads, and sweet treats (all baked on the premises). It's about two blocks from "A Prima Vista." There are other bakeries/cafes in the immediate area but they had not yet opened for business at the time of my visit.

The owner of the property was thoughtful enough to contact me to make sure my transportation from the Bangor, ME airport to Bar Harbor had been arranged. Upon arrival, he again contacted me to make sure the house was in order, and it was. In addition, he was patient in answering my questions/concerns during the planning stages of my trip.

I thoroughly enjoyed every second of my stay at "A Prima Vista" and I'm looking forward to a return visit in the near future.

I give location of the house, the homeowner and the house itself a five star rating (it has already been recommended it to a co-worker who asked if I would stay there again).

COMFORT, CONVENIENCE AND LOTS TO DO

  • 5 of 5
My girl friend and I stayed in this house and it was our first time in Bar Harbor. It was July 4th weekend. We were extremely delighted by the house and the overall surroundings. The owners have thought of everything to make you feel right at home. The bedrooms are spacious and very comfortable. The kitchen is big with all the appliances and tools necessary to make a gourmet meal for family and friends. And the deck is the place to be in the morning for a cup of coffee, in the afternoon with a glass of lemonade, or in the evening with a glass of wine. Comfort and convenience sums up the entire experience! The house is located on a quiet street but there is so much right within walking distance – a grocery store, bakeries and great restaurants. One of the best things we did was bike in Arcadia National Park (which was practically right out the front door). But you can also take a boat ride, kayak, and play tennis, swim, shop or hike. If you’re looking for relaxation in a clean and well appointed home, with lots to do during day and night – look no further. This is it!

IDEAL VACATION HOME - HOME AWAY FROM HOME

  • 5 of 5
My wife and I and the 2 boys had a blast in Bar Harbor this summer. Biking Acadia! Whale watching! Jordon Pond House! We did it all! But the best was coming home each night to just a delightful space . The house is just perfect - lovely on the outside with great gardens. Inside is all classic charm. There are hand-hewn rustic beams and 19th century planking blended with understated modern amenities throughout. The elevated deck is just fantastic. We ate lobster dinners there and watched the stars at night. We never used the car. The street is quiet but close to the action…just the right combination. We played tennis at the Bar Harbor Club 2 blocks away and dined at McKays Public House , strolling home. This is more than just a rental property. The owners were amazing - very helpful, supportive and responsive. Our vacation time is precious to us…we spent it well at “A Prima Vista” Cottage.

GREAT HOME AND GREAT LOCATION

  • 5 of 5
This was our first vacation in Bar Harbor. This is a beautiful home, well maintained, and in a great location. The house was clean and spacious enough for ournfamilynof four. We were able to walk to all of the shops and restaurants in town, and it is just a few minute drive to Acadia. The owners were very helpful, took the time to talk with me for an hour on the phone and gave me tips on what activities to do and where to eat while we were there.

We would definitely stay there again when we return to Bar Harbor. We highly recommend this to anyone who wants to stay in the heart of Bar Harbor.

GREAT HOUSE!

  • 5 of 5
We six adults, from Arkansas, Texas and Swan’s Island, gathered for a Thanksgiving adventure and it was AWESOME. The home is spotless, beautiful and well appointed - and very comfortable. The big kitchen was home to great meals, card games, and stories. The location an easy walk to the water, the shops, the square, and good restaurants (yes, even in the off season. You must try the crab dip at Mama Dimatteos, yum). Shawn and April were easy to work with and contacted us several times before our arrival to give us information about BH and their home. We look forward to coming again in warmer weather.

Because of the stairs and the upscale decor, this home is not suitable for young children, but my 85 year old dad managed well.

Car: not necessary

Centrally located on a quiet street in the heart of Bar Harbor, a short stroll takes you everywhere – the bustling downtown, the waterfront and shore path, Frenchman’s Bay and sand bar, restaurants, pubs and shopping. Walk to the shopping center in minutes.

Rent your bike at the corner and pedal into the park or take a kayak tour minutes away. In the morning, have your coffee and pastry at the nearby bakeries and internet cafes. Or head to the Village Green where you can listen to a free evening concert or catch a movie at Reel Cinema.

Four masted schooners and whale watching junkets depart nearby, as well as other water based adventures and trips to outlying islands. Or simply dine on the water and watch the hustle and bustle before you stroll a few blocks home.

The town offers free shuttles all over Mount Deser Island with stops at all the major trailheads and attractions of Acadia, America’s 2nd most popular National Park. With 5 major routes, your party can split up, go their separate ways, and still meet up again at an agreed upon location.

At the end of town, trailheads lead into Acadia. Golf and tennis are at the edge of town. In short, no need for a car!
