Studio, 1 Bath, Sleeps 4
TurnKey Vacation Rentals
Cute and comfortable rental for 2
Stayed for 3 nights in August. Place was clean and fully stocked with towels and kitchen tools and glassware. Original write-up said no A/C, but there was a portable unit in the liviing area, although it wasn't needed. We really only used the refrigerator for iced and keeping soda and water cold and we didn't use the electric stove. The flat screen Roku TV only got Netflix, but we have a YouTubeTV account at home and were able to log in and watch our home channels. Parking was a little tight when all 4 spaces were taken - however we managed to get in & out with a mid-sized SUV, even with a car parked accross from the driveway. The only 2 minor suggestions I might have is that the only mirror was in the bathroom and was a little too high for us short people. The other is that a little clearer instructions for the TV might be helpful. All in all, a very pleasant stay.
Great little studio in Bar Harbor
My boyfriend and I were very pleased with our stay. It is a less than 5 minute walk to downtown Bar Harbor, and a 10-15 minute ride to most trailheads in the park. It was clean and very cute. Our only complaint was there was inconsistent communication regarding when a roofer would be parking in the driveway. We had to pay to park in a nearby spot for several days to avoid being blocked in and had no warning. Other than that and the Wifi not really working, it was a perfect stay.
Nice location in Bar Harbor
This was a nice "home base" for exploring Bar Harbor and Acadia. My mom and I stayed here for 3 days and enjoyed the location. I had no problem sleeping on the sofa bed and my mom slept fine on the queen bed. The kitchen was convenient to cook meals and save some money in expensive Bar Harbor, though it did not have a dishwasher and there was a fairly large stain on the stove. The dining area is small (in the doorway), but the overall space was enough for two people to stay comfortably. There was no dresser or spot to lay bags/unpack and we would suggest that the property manager provide at least one luggage rack to future guests. I also want to note that we did not have a parking space available on sight the last night of our stay (as all 3 spots were taken), which was inconvenient since we were leaving early the next morning and had to pack the car. Though not perfect, this rental property was a fine place to stay on a quiet street in town.

this house is located in the center of bar harbor. It's one block from grocery store and very convenient. Check-in and check-out with turnkey is very smooth.
Needs some improvements
First question asked in the review was cleanliness. Everything was fine except for the floor. It was dirty. A spill in front of the futon and stickers from the manufacturer still on the floor that were dirty.It needed a mop!
2ndquestion. Check in process was easy.
3rdquestion. Accuracy of listing . 4 people beyond cozy. 4 adults too tight small children might be an issue with stairs to unit. Great space for 2 adults.
4th queestion.Management communications were fine.
5th question location. Although the unit is in a great downtown spot accessing the driveway is really difficult. There are overgrown trees on both sides of the entrance at the street. They need to be cut back badly. They will and do scratch your vehicle. Often a vehicle is parked directly opposite the driveway making the right turn on the one way street impossible. My husband had to drive in the wrong direction to get in.Or back in if there is room . He has a CDL. Also the yard needs major attention. Overgrown and hasn't seen a good clean up in sometime. No outdoor seating for the unit.
