Perfect! Affordable and everything you need in Bar Harbor!

  • 5 of 5

Dragonfly woods is the perfect place to stay in Bar Harbor. It is beautiful inside and out. The kids (and dog)enjoyed their back yard and blueberry bushes. The apartment is so well stocked. The linens and towels are high quality. Rob and Gayle are the most helpful hosts. They gave us great suggestions and told us not to hesitate in asking them questions. The rental is close to downtown Bar Harbor and Acadia. We had the best week. I almost want to keep this place a secret.

Great location and wonderful hosts

  • 5 of 5

Dragonfly Woods Apartment was perfect for our family of 4, with two young children. The apartment is very clean, and well equipped to meet our needs. We were able to have most of breakfasts and dinners in the apartment.

We really liked the location of the apartment. It's only few miles from the Hulls Cove Visitor Center and downtown Bar Harbor. There is a shuttle stop a short walk from the apartment. The shuttle is free, and this particular route goes to the visitor center and then downtown.

Our hosts Gayle and Rob were very friendly and helpful. Before we arrived, they had a high chair and a pack'n play out in the apartment for our toddler. The kids spent a lot of time playing in the yard, on the swings or the hammock in the evening.

We would definitely recommend the property to others, and wouldn't hesitate to rent it again if we were to visit Acadia again.

Beautiful clean apt

  • 4 of 5

The apt was the perfect size for our family (2 adults 2 kids and dog). The location was quiet. The apt was nicely appointed and had a washer/dryer which was a nice bonus. There was a backyard for the kids and dog to play. Conviently located near downtown bar harbor and acadia national park.

Nice Apartment

  • 4 of 5

We really enjoyed this apartment. It was very close to Acadia (both sides) and also close enough to Bar Harbor to get there whenever we needed. We also appreciated how quiet the location was.

I appreciated having a washer and dryer (with soap!) to use, and also spent some time enjoying the hammock outside.

As long as you don't mind that you won't be "downtown," I very much recommend this location. The price is competitive too!

Awesome Apartment, Awesome Stay!

  • 5 of 5

This is a GREAT apartment! It's Located in a really wonderful area. Peace and quiet describe your stay perfectly. Gayle and Rob are friendly, helpful and welcoming to their guests without intruding. You can get all over the island from their location easily. In fact, to visit the "other side" of the island is easier from this location. They have a welcome book with really terrific descriptions of various hikes, their difficulty level, how to find them, where to park and what you will experience on the hike. I found this extremely helpful. I absolutely suggest the Wonderland Hike! The beach head is a bit of heaven on earth. We saw deer each evening on the property! The Pond just down from the property is full of birdlife! The apartment was clean, bright, airy and very comfortable. The kitchen has everything you could need or want. The deck was a perfect place to reflect on the day and enjoy a glass of wine. I really enjoyed my stay and would totally reccomend this property.
