About John

Had been coming to Maine since the early 70's . After living in different parts of the island decided to move to Town . I can walk everywhere . I can put my bike on the shuttle and take me to Jordon Pond . Then ride back home on carriage rd's . Pretty awesome .

John purchased this house in 2006

Why John chose Bar Harbor and Mount Desert Island

I Love older houses . My realtor called me and said you must see this house . Bought it on the spot . We are close to all . You would literally never have to drive anywhere on the Island . The shuttle 'The Island Exploerer" starts June 23 .

What makes this house unique

All town has to offer is within walking distance .

Great place in downtown Bar Harbor

  • 5 of 5

We couldn't ask for a nicer place. Close enough to walk to the center of town but away from all the hustle and bustle. Comfy house with all the amentities. John was a great host. Even helped us carry our bags in.

very comfortable and convenient

  • 5 of 5

We really had a very good visit to Bar Harbor and Acadia National Park. It was wonderful coming home to this very comfortable and private apartment. everything my husband and I needed was there. It was fresh feeling, clean, beds super comfortable. Nice towels and blankets. We brought our own food and the kitchen was pleasant and easy to use. That deck you see in the picture was perfect to check your texts and look at the days pictures. Also, every evening we were able to watch our favorite netflix. Thank you for the fresh cosmos flowers too, I appreciated them.

Awesome Rental!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful week staying in the apartment on the 2nd and 3rd floor of John's house! We loved the outdoor porch space on the 2nd floor, and, better yet, there's a bakery right around the corner! The beds were very comfortable and the house comes with all of the amenities - wifi, TV with HBO, linens, pots and pans, appliances, and all the comforts of home. Just minutes from a grocery store, two blocks from the water, a short, 10-minute walk to the town center, and within bicycling distance of the carriage trails; it's in a perfect location!

Great place!

  • 5 of 5

John's place was spacious, bright and artful, also centrally located near town. It was nice to have two floors so we could not worry about waking our kids after they went to sleep! John was a terrific host, offering local advice and had a kind approach. We hope to return!

Great Rental and Great Host

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 5 had a great stay at John's place. Plenty of room for all of us, and the place was spotless. The 2nd floor was a perfect place for the kids to sleep. John gave us several ideas of places to hike and eat. The house was close enough that we could easily walk to town. We would definitely stay again!

Map

Hike the many trails in Acadia National Park, go whale watching, rent kayaks and explore the lakes and coastal areas, eat lobster, visit the wonderful shops in town, take your pick of many great restaurants, relax and do nothing, relax and swim at Sand Beach, go to the movies at the recently renovated 1920's Criterion Theatre, or watch a movie as you eat pizza at Reel Pizza, or when it's all said and done you could just eat a lobster.
