About Anne Dalton

My husband and I have raised our 4 sons on Mount Desert Island. My husband Greg works at Bar Harbor Bank and Trust and I work as a Guidance counselor at one of the local schools. We love to hike, bike, ski, swim, boat and golf! There is so much to do here! We just love our home and enjoy sharing it with you!

Anne Dalton purchased this house in 2000

Why Anne Dalton chose Bar Harbor

We bought the Holland House because it was the same architectural design and the house I grew up in in Portland Maine! We love the location and have fun updating this beautiful old Victorian! We have two other lovely homes on this property as well. Westview Cottage and The Carriage House.

Cozy, warm and very clean!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I came up during New Years to climb Cadillac Mtn. The house was so cozy and well prepared. The owners were available for questions before and it was one of our best experiences renting home.

This house was in a great location. Walk to stores, cafes, downtown, park, shore trail. Large well equipped kitchen, washer/dryer, fireplace. Well maintained and the neighbor was friendly too! It felt like home, very clean, nicely decorated too. Don't hesitate to book, you will not be disappointed. Owner got back to us quickly and booking was a breeze.

Fun vacation

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I along with our two dogs stayed at the Holland House for a week. It was clean, cozy, and welcoming. We only wish the weather was cooler so we could have enjoyed the fireplace. The Holland House was fully equipped with everything we needed. The location was also great. Hannaford was about a block away plus we were able to take a kayak trip from the place next door. We were also close to the Sand Bar to walk out to Bar Island which was a fun morning walk at low tide. It is a short drive to the Acadia Park entrance and a quick walk to downtown to all of the restaurants and shops.

We would definitely consider renting this again in the future.

The Westview Cottage was perfect for our BH stay

  • 5 of 5

The Westview Cottage was perfect for our stay in Bar Harbor. The house was immaculate and the kitchen was well stocked with utensils, pots and pans, etc....Oh and very importantly for a good nights rest the beds were super comfortable as was the living room furniture. We had two dogs with us that did great.

There is one heads up there's a mini market behind the house which is rather active but there's a tall privacy fence so I sat in the back yard very comfortably and was not bothered at all. It was actually very handy to have the mini market a hop away and the Hannaford Supermarket a skip away. A nice surprise was we found two updates, the living room television and the master bathroom shower have been updated since the pictures were taken.

We will definitely look to rent this property for our next stay in Bar Harbor.

Can't wait to come back!

  • 5 of 5

I have stayed here twice and can't wait to come back. West view cottage is a modern, comfortable house. Private. Conveniently located within walking distance into the village. Cable and WiFi were great. All amenities I could possibly want. Owners are friendly and accommodating. Eating lobster from the Trenton Bridge Lobster Pound was our daily treat. : ) Would recommend this place with 5 stars!

Very Pleased

  • 5 of 5

I rented both the Holland House and Westview Cottage for a large gathering and found the combination of the two worked very well. The properties are as described, incredibly convenient to town ( we did not find traffic to be an issue in October), and are well-equipped for any stay. The Holland House is older, but clean and well-appointed. We did not find the single full bath to be an issue. The Westview cottage is much newer and therefore more modern if that's your preference. Anne could not have been more helpful or accomodating. I would not hesitate to stay here again.
