Authentic Bar Harbor retreat

Staying just outside of Bar Harbor is advantageous if you're more focused on activities in Acadia and around the island than you are on the town. Even when Bar Harbor gets busy in peak season, this house keeps you comfortably outside the bustle while retaining easy access to the park headquarters or town, when you want it. We have two preschoolers who enjoyed running around the big yard, exploring the woods, and playing by the creek. The TV, internet, and kitchen appliances all worked well. Do expect the idiosyncracies and rusticness of what is a very old house; for example, we didn't get the heating to work properly the two nights we needed it. We found Roland, the owner, to be very courteous and responsive. He keeps the house clean and stocked with essentials. We enjoyed our time here.

We had a great stay in Bar Harbor. This farmhouse was nice, recent renovations made the place really comfortable. House was really close to Acadia National Park and all the shops and restaurants.
