Since this is a three story home, there are two sets. One set from the garage level to the main living level and another set of steps from the main living room level to the bedroom level. There is a half bath on the main level and two full baths on the bedroom level. Four balconies with Victorian spindled railings 41 inches high would be a concern for those with toddlers.

Comfortable, "like-home" stay in Bar Harbor

  • 5 of 5

My husband, young son, and I spent a week at this rental, exploring the Bar Harbor area. It was the perfect "home base"--go one way up the hill, and you're in Acadia National Park. Go the other way down the hill, and with just two quick turns (and within four minutes or so), you're in downtown Bar Harbor. (The townhouse is close enough to walk downtown, but it involves crossing the main road from the mainland--Rte. 3--which isn't very pedestrian-friendly.)

The townhouse was comfortable, up-to-date, and had all we needed. Loved having the washer/dryer, not to mention a garage to park the car in. There's a small view of Cadillac Mtn. (I believe) from the back patio--though, that may disappear when there are more leaves on the trees.

There was plenty of space to stretch out and each have our own space (my son staked out the big window seat for himself, and spent a good amount of time there, reading). And, while we were only three people, it would very comfortably hold six, without everyone being on top of one another.

Also, the place smelled nice, and felt clean. The shelf of knick knacks in the downstairs 1/2 bath had some dust action going on (I recommend editing down to one or two easily-dusted pieces), but overall, it felt bright and clean and happy.

Lastly, the owner, Bobbi, was absolutely wonderful to work with--a real superstar!


My only word of caution about this property: there are a lot of stairs (no surprise there, given that it's a townhouse), but if you struggle with stair climbing, you may want to consider another property.

Perfect In Every Way!

  • 5 of 5

As others have stated, this is a wonderful home, close to all that Bar Harbor, Acadia National Park and MDI offer. Comfortable and attractive rooms/furnishings, well-appointed/amenities, ample parking, large garage, laundry, walk to town, bike to the park, short drive to park entrances. Best by far for us, in over 20 years of coming to MDI.

Excellent property, close to both town and Acadia

  • 5 of 5

I have returned to this charming, affordable townhouse in Bar Harbor every fall for a number of years. The house is a real find, being so conveniently located within walking distance to town and right outside an entrance to the National Park. The house is beautifully decorated and is fully outfitted for a comfortable stay. It has all the conveniences of home with a well- stocked kitchen. Bobbi, the owner, is easy to deal with and makes everything easy.

Wonderful place.

  • 5 of 5

This is a lovely house. Everything in the description of it was true as are the other reviews. There's absolutely nothing you need to bring other than clothes and food. Beautifully kept, spacious and comfy. Great kitchen with all the amenities (we did bring a crock pot with us). Large selection of current movies and books. An entrance to Acadia National Park is right up the street. Bar Harbor town center within walking distance. And Bobbi is wonderfully helpful, accommodating and friendly. We 5 "sisters" had a great time.

Great townhouse in a great location

  • 5 of 5

Ditto to all the great comments made by previous guests. We three hikers enjoyed being so close to town and the hiking trails. Look no further. This place is comfortable, cozy, and beautifully decorated. Even the light switch plates are pretty. The owner has created a place that is hard to leave. Wish we could have stayed longer. We enjoyed having the nice kitchen to cook most of our meals. Everything about this place is A+. Book early!

Lovely Home Base for our Bar Harbor Vacation

  • 5 of 5

We have rented several homes in different parts of the country, but my family all agreed this was our favorite rental home. It was a lovely, spacious, very clean, quiet, beautiful home that met our needs wonderfully. We would definitely recommend highly to others and would stay here again if we ever find ourselves vacationing again in Bar Harbor. The home is in a perfect location. It is literally a 10-minute drive from the top of Cadillac Mountain and a 2-minute drive to town. We drove to town and were able to find parking, but if parking is an issue, it would be walkable. We picked the perfect week to vacation on the beautiful Mount Desert Island. It was the last week of the season, so we wondered if we would miss the colors, but as it turned out we were there during peak foliage week, the weather was absolutely perfect, and because it was the end of the season, we were able to take advantage of some sales in the shops in Bar Harbor. We cooked most meals at the house, but we did enjoy a breakfast at Common Good Kitchen Cafe in Southwest Harbor and a dinner at Side Street Cafe in Bar Harbor. We took advantage of many hiking trails in Acadia. We thoroughly enjoyed our vacation and staying in this beautiful home helped make it even better!
