Brand-new 3 bed, 2 bath, pet-friendly home minutes from Acadia National Park
About Jean Karutis
Our family has been visiting Acadia for years. We are based in upstate New York, and have spent a few weeks every year in Maine for nearly 20 years. We recently realized our dream of buying a home here, and are happy to welcome you to it! We learned from all of our stays in Maine what makes for a relaxing, beautiful vacation home, and have used that to make our home perfect for your family.
Jean Karutis purchased this House in 2015
Why Jean Karutis chose Bar Harbor
You'll be hard pressed to find another property with all the stunning amenities, household items, and items for daily living that we provide at Gordy's Place. We have gone out of our way to make this home as well-stocked and furnished as possible, so you just need to bring yourself, your clothes, and some hiking shoes! We love pets—it is named after our dog Gordy, after all!—and welcome well-behaved pets into our home. It's tucked away at the end of a cul de sac, but just minutes -- a short bike ride even -- from the entrance to Acadia or the beach. We put our heart into this home, and know you'll love it as much as we do. (Follow us on Instagram @gordysplacebarharbor to see more pics of our home, the Bar Harbor area and some awesome shots of Gordy!)
What makes this House unique
Forgot your toothbrush? Need shampoo? Need to do laundry? Don't worry—Gordy's Place is stocked top to bottom with everything you could possibly need. It's also beautifully appointed with high-quality furnishings, and expertly designed to be not just functional, but comfortable and beautiful as well.

Lovely home in acadia
My family and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Gourdy's place. The house was very well stocked and exceptionally clean. Location was perfect, close to acadia and bar harbor. The house is located on what looks like a relatively new development site - the trees havent had a chance to grow up between the property lines so you are close to your neighbor. Beds are a bit firm. Orhereise really great, tons of amenities (including wireless phone chargers everywhere). We would definitely stay here again
Gordy's home is a wonderful home away from home! Bob & Jean's hospitality is superb and the amenities they provide are 1st class making our stay and 1st visit to Maine very pleasurable. This home is a gem right in the heart of the Bar Harbor, Acadia National park area. We truly enjoyed our stay and would definitely stay again at Gordy's place!!
Had a wonderful time in Bar Harbor
Had a wonderful time in Bar Harbor. The house was in excellent condition. Had everything you could imagine you need. Very clean, good location. Would recommend staying here to any of my friends.

Absolutely love how you thought of everything we could possibly need from fire starters to soap bubbles and beach toys! Loved the books, magazines and pictures. So many kitchen items! Furnishings were beautiful super clean and the layout of the house worked perfectly. And of course, we love the fire pit area and the umbrella and the hammock area- everything everything everything!! We loved also having the garage because we bring our bikes and kayaks so it was great to have a place to keep them dry. We’ve been coming to Bar Harbor for over 20 years and have run the gamut from tent camping all the way up to trailers to renting houses so we’re happy we found you and hope to stay there again thank you for everything
Gordy's Place has a great location to MDI. The home is well stocked with just about everything imaginable. The owners have taken great care in every way to make your stay pleasant and enjoyable.
Lots of lovely furnishings, all the kitchen items you could need, a record player (!), my child's first time in a hammock, quiet location, roomy garage turned out to be extremely useful, and beautifully decorated! Being there made us smile.
Loved every minute in the home. It had everything that our family needed.
Comfortable, well appointed, modern home with every amenity and loads of kitchen gadgets plus soaps and cleaners for every need
All around great vacation rental
We hope you will choose our home for your Acadia vacation!
Beautiful, well-stocked home in a great location
This home is brand new, very well taken care of, and the owner provides everything you could possibly need. We forgot a few things, but didn't have to make a late night run to Rite Aid to get them because the house is stocked with toothbrushes, shampoo, laundry detergent, basic pantry items... it really makes life easier. The house itself gets a ton of light and is incredibly clean and well maintained. We loved the outdoor area, especially the fire pit at night. The garage was really convenient too. And it's just a few minutes from Acadia and Bar Harbor, while being tucked away, which makes it feel more remote and secluded. The owner left us a welcome basket, which was such a nice touch! We'd definitely love to stay here again and think any family, especially one with a dog, would love it too.
