Glorious sunny rooms. Beautiful colors. Newly renovated. Mint condition. Sky lights. Spectacular spa quality designer shower. This is your home away from home right in the center of the hustle and bustle that's Bar Harbor during the summer season. While others circle the town looking for that elusive parking spot, you slip quietly into your own spacious three car accommodation, a few yards from the center of town, across from the Village Green where every night is a summer festival. Don't feel like making breakfast? Delicious blueberry pancakes await right across the courtyard at Cafe This Way where regulars return for scrumptious breakfasts and legendary dinners. Then stroll along the garden, turn right and check out the shops, something for every taste and every budget. Go for a scenic cruise around the island, see a whale, hop aboard a four masted schooner, eat some lobsters, swim in pristine lakes or brave the ocean, hike the trails, bike the carriage roads. Welcome!

I cannot rave too much about the Hideaway. In fact, I was tempted not to review it - I'm worried about a mad dash on the place that makes it hard for me to book it next time!
It is a lovely home in a perfect location. The description is 100% accurate - wonderful light, comfy rooms, beautiful spa shower, huge kitchen, comfy fireplace, great work desk.
I visited the Hideaway late Dec through early Jan to hunker down in a comfy place, go on hikes in the day and walk to town in the afternoons and evenings. This place was perfect. Everything is brand new and spanking clean, and the glorious windows let in wonderful light, but the Hideaway is still nestled in a corner off the main path so you don't feel like your in the middle of town (even though you are!). I could walk to the grocery store, restaurants, the movie theater, even the YMCA is close by. Eagle Lake is 3 miles up the road on which the Hideaway sits.
There's a great TV, cable and many, many DVDs. Flawless internet access.
The owner is next door - very sweet to check on me, but completely respectful of privacy. She's quite the charmer!
I would stay at the Hideaway any time - it is by far one of the top homes I've ever rented. I didn't think anything could make Bar Harbor better, but the Hideaway does. Fantastic! Highly recommended.
Thank you, D'Lesli!
That is high praise indeed, coming from someone who travels as much as you do! Your thoughtfulness is much appreciated. Winters in Bar Harbor, although sometimes brutally cold, can be fantastic! The cross country skiing trails, always impeccably groomed, are unmatched.
Property was comfortable, clean, and the location can't be beat. I loved having a washer and dryer. This never seems to be a request while traveling until your luggage is lost. Thank God for this convienence.
Thank you, Christine! Loved having you in my Hideaway. You are the perfect guests. So sorry about your traveling mishaps, hope your trip back home went smoother. Thank you for leaving the place so clean and neat Hope to see you again soon!
A cozy and inviting home in a prefect location. Right in the heart of Bar Harbor. We had a wonderful time. Can’t wait to return!
Thank you so much, Patti! Loved having you and your family here! Thank you for leaving the place so pristine. Can't wait to have you back!
We loved it.
Very nice place to stay. Close to downtown and all the restaurants. We would stay there again.
Thank you, ladies, for great review! Loved having you here and am happy that you had a great time on MDI. Hope to see you again!
Truly a hideaway
This home is in the center of town and yet is amazingly quiet and private. Ann is a lovely hostess who is unobtrusive yet welcoming. The rooms are very comfortable, the property is clean and inviting and the second floor full bath with a walk-in shower is wonderful! We also found the kitchen to be very functional and well-stocked. I so enjoyed my stay with my family, and would absolutely rent this property again, and feel the price for the rental is more than reasonable. A gem!
Thank you so much, Suzanne for such kind words! Loved having you and your family here. Loved that you so actively enjoyed the place and had cook outs and gatherings outdoors! It was a pleasure to have you here and I very much welcome you back!
This was the perfect rental for us and our two adult sons while visiting Acadia National Park. It was less than a block away from The Village Green in Bar Harbor where ALL the free Island Express shuttle buses pick up and drop off, so we could catch a free ride to any trail or town on Mt. Desert Island. Ann was very easy to work with and very nice to talk to when we saw her as we came and went. Ann’s directions made finding the rental very easy (even in the dark after we had major airline delays). We arrived to find a welcome basket with fruit, crackers, cheese, coffee, and wine, as well as a small container of milk and a plastic jug of cold water in the fridge. The grocery store is about 9 short blocks away. Between using the Island shuttles and walking to everything near the harbor and Village Green we never had to use the car rental except to get here and get back to the airport. The rental is bright, has 3 bedrooms, a large bath with shower on the second floor, and a half bath downstairs with a washer and dryer along with detergent. The kitchen seemed well stocked and even has a dishwasher. The beds and the furniture in the living room weren’t comfortable for me but everything else about this rental was great. The wi-fi wasn’t working (I forgot it was Sunday) so I called Ann. She was immediately responsive and even texted us while we were on the trail to keep us updated and had it fixed by the next day. The restaurant Cafe This Way is right across the alley (about 30 feet) so we popped out of bed and were eating breakfast within 15 minutes. Even being right across the alley from Cafe This Way this rental was quiet. Fantastic spot for easy access to all the shops, restaurants, and the harbor. If we are lucky enough to return to Bar Harbor this will be our first choice for a rental. Definitely make this your first choice!
Thank you, Floran, for such a detailed and excellent review! Much appreciated.
Really loved having you here and for your patience with the WiFi. You were the perfect guests and I loved the way you took advantage of everything the island has to offer. I hope you and your fun family will come back again and again!
The Village Green Hideaway is located in the center of Bar Harbor, a popular and beautiful vacation spot on Mount Desert Island, Maine, surrounded by oceans, lakes, hiking trails, mountains and Acadia National Park. The Hideaway is within walking distance to shopping, movies, restaurants, entertainment, kayak rentals, sailing, bicycling, arts and crafts, Walk down to the pier and enjoy the harbor activity, take a whale watch trip, a sail on a six masted schooner, a cocktail cruise. Be pampered at one of five local spas. Bar Harbor has something to be discovered and enjoyed by people of all ages. Then retire to the privacy of your Hideaway, across the courtyard from Cafe This Way. Fire up the lobster pot and have your own cookout. Lobsters are plentiful on this island and you can buy them from local lobstermen or stores. Walk up to the corner and sample the wholesome foods and wares from the Alternative Market. Cross over to the Village Green and enjoy a free concert. Happy day
