Excellent in-town location of Bar Harbor at 4 Mount Desert St. Minutes to all activities within town and across the street from the Island Explorer bus system which offers free transportation to Acadia National Park and the island - they even have a bike rack.
The apartment is within the Historic Corridor and close to shops, restaurants and theaters. Relax on the upper deck overlooking the village green and enjoy the local talent on Mondays and Thursdays with the community band.

Scott and Mo Stevens purchased this apartment in 2000
We use to live in this apartment. We decided we needed a little space between our home and our work and moved to a house on the other side of the island. We completely renovated the apartment and turned it in to a rental.
We are available to help should anything arise during your stay. We are very familiar with all of Acadia. We have hiked, biked, paddled and skied just about every trail and lake. We love to share our knowledge of the island, and can set you up with a great customized day.
Amazing location. Tons of space. Very clean and comfortable. Interactions with the hosts were super friendly and getting set up was quick. The apartment can get pretty warm when it's hot out, but there are a bunch of ACs to help combat that. I highly recommend this spot.
If you are looking for a convenient and spacious place to stay in Bar Harbor/Acadia, this is definitely worth looking at! The location couldn't have been more convenient with the park right across the street and restaurants/shops right outside the front door. As another reviewer noted, parking was never an issue, and we were often able to find a spot right in front of the apartment. The apartment itself was much larger than we expected! With two separate bedrooms, a large eat-in kitchen, and a living room with a door, we felt we had a ton of space to relax and spread out in when we were home in the mornings and evenings. It was the perfect place for us to stay in with our almost two-year old son. Unlike when you stay in a hotel room, he slept in the provided pack-n-play undisturbed in his own room while we read/watched TV in the living room before retreating to our own bedroom to sleep. We would definitely recommend this place to friends and family, and we hope to rent it again if we head back to Bar Harbor/Acadia in the future.
I rent vacation homes several times a year. The entire time I stayed at this apartment (June 2016), I was composing my review in my head. Like most people, I had read all the reviews on this site and looked over the pics. I saw "that one really bad review" that everyone else shamed, and the countless glowing reviews- which made me feel confident in choosing this place to stay on our trip. So I've decided to right an honest review of this property, and you can decide if it's the right place for you to stay.
First the Pro's:
1. Absolutely best location possible
You walk out the door and are on the beautiful village green surrounded by shops and cute restaurants and bars. You can walk everywhere! You can't find a better in-town location. *Please note, there is an Irish pub right below you and two of the rooms can hear the music at night. My teen loved it :)
2. Spacious apartment
You walk into the dining/kitchen area, then down the hall, there are 3 separate rooms. Two are set up as bedrooms (queen bed and double bed), and the last is actually set up as the "living room", but they provide a really nice queen-sized air mattress, and that makes for lots of beds for your group. And it gives plenty of space to spread out.
Now the Con's:
1. Needs Maintenance- a lot of maintenance
Given the positive reviews, I had an expectation in my mind when I walked inside this apartment. The reality of what i walked into left a lot to be desired. There are water leaks on the ceiling in several rooms (still wet!), tattered old furniture (not antique- just ugly), no shower head in the shower (just an open pipe that spews water everywhere), unpainted baseboards TAPED TO THE WALL BY DUCT TAPE, cracks in the walls, rusty old appliances (should have been trashed years ago). The overall feeling is extremely utilitarian. It has space and beds, but absolutely no charm or care for your comfort has been added.
There is one tiny TV in the "living room". It is so small that we all had to sit right in front of it to watch a movie. It's ridiculous to have such a tiny TV in a very large room. Also, there are only the most basic channels, which is annoying when you want to watch sports.
3. No laundry
But there's a laundromat a couple blocks away
4. No parking spot
We didn't really mind this, tho
On vacation, you might want a little TLC, and this place does not offer that. But the excellent location might be enough of a draw, so decide for yourself. My family is split :)
This apartment was absolutely perfect for our needs! We have a toddler and an infant, so the highchair, pack and play, and toys were wonderful. And the location couldn't be better, right downtown with everything within easy walking distance. The owners were very friendly, but also respected our need for privacy. The only challenge was parking, but having a handicap tag (for grandpa who traveled with us) made it much easier. I would certainly want to stay there again!
Great upstairs apartment in Bar harbor. Very convenient and the bed was sooooooo...comfortable. Mo and Scott were very helpful and hospitable. We hiked and biked the old carriage trails and the weather was great. Everything worked in the apt and it was well equipped.
Thank you, Mo and Scott! We are a family of 4 plus a grandfather. This apartment is not only in an *excellent* location (RIGHT in the center of Bar Harbor), it is also far more spacious than we could have hoped for. A generous 2 bedroom with room for all. Quiet at night and everyone slept well. Both children and all three adults successfully took naps when desired, so it was quiet during the day, too. The apartment is well-stocked with pack 'n plays, extra blankets, extra towels, what looked like an air mattress, and all sorts of things to make your stay more homey. We loved the deck and the big kitchen. Living room is huge. Also, the place was safe for our two young children. We had a great stay. One other note worth mentioning - Mo and Scott were very helpful when needed, but also very appropriately non-intrusive. We also appreciated that they did not require a lot of upfront paperwork to be signed and sent back and forth and did not charge ANY hidden costs. What you see is really what you get here, and they make it easy for you. We were very grateful to them.
