Great rental home

  • 5 of 5

If I could give this home 10 stars I would. Perfect location for Bar Harbor. Easy walk to town but in a neighborhood so you can escape the crowds and feel like a local . House has everything you need for a comfortable stay. Great yard! Owners are helpful and even brought us some tomatoes. Hope we can stay here again and thanks for being pet friendly.

Great place to stay with kids!

  • 5 of 5

We spent a week here with a family of 4 including my 5 year old and 2 year old. The house was awesome! So much room for us, big kitchen and the kids loved the deck and fenced in back yard. All the little details made it a super comfortable stay such as the fact there was already toilet paper, napkins and paper plates, as well as dish soap and laundry soap. It really helped reduce the stress and early preparation when we arrived. The electronic lock made coming and going easy too! There a wading pool for kids right around the corner (under construction when we were there), and a playground by the YMCA about 3 blocks away. It's a quick drive from multiple entrances to Acadia NP and to Bar Harbor. We also got meet the owners, who are such nice people. This was one of the best family vacations yet!

Great Vacation Spot

  • 5 of 5

John and Barbara's house was perfect for us. It's not super fancy, but it's clean and comfortable. It has a well stocked kitchen, comfortable living space, a nice deck and a back yard where our kids played happily. It truly is just a short walk to downtown Bar Harbor and several evenings we walked into town to wander around. The road it's on is quiet, which was much appreciated for a good night's sleep. The small touches like hand soap and sponges, trail maps, take out menus and even a small desk with post-it notes were much appreciated. The owners were easy to communicate with, and provided both their contact information and backup contact information should we need it (we didn't). I would definitely recommend this house to anyone looking to stay in Bar Harbor. Thanks John and Barbara!
