Overview

About the property

3 bedroom, one bath, sleeps 6-8 plus bonus youth room

Our home is on a quiet side street, one block off Main Street. Your vacation begins the moment you pull your car into the driveway, no need to search for parking. Acadia National Park and all that Bar Harbor has to offer are within walking distance. The well equipped kitchen which opens to a large backyard, spacious dining room, and living room, equipped with 42 in flat screen T.V.,VCR/DVD, stereo, card and board games are on the first floor. Upstairs has 3 bedrooms, 2 with queen beds, one with 2 twin beds, bathroom, plus a youth room with a pack and play. In the backyard relax as you watch the children play, or enjoy a game of badminton, fire up the gas grill for a cookout and enjoy your lobster dinner in the fresh salt air. After dinner walk two block to listen to a concert in the Village Green or browse the many shops and boutiques, another two blocks to watch the sunset over the ocean before coming home to tuck in to rest up for another day of relaxation and adventure.

Acadia Escape remodeled in 2008 : We have done lots of updates to our recently purchased home. All windows and doors have been replaced with energy efficient low e glass. An energy efficient furnace was also installed this year to help with green house gases and for your comfort. The electrical system has also been completely updated to all safety codes including smoke detectors in every room for your safety. In the bathroom the tub/shower enclosure has been newly tiled. The hardwood floors in the living area and the California pine floors on the entire second floor have all been sanded and refinished. As have all the original wood doors.

2012 we have upgraded, we have put a 42 inch HDTV and new pull out couch in the living area, also new carpet in dining room and new flooring in the bathroom.

Tennis lessons available: August Lozano is a USPTA certified tennis professional. I have been a teaching pro at the Ellsworth Tennis Center for 10 years. In 2008 I was ranked #1 in the State of Maine in the 45 and over. In 2006 I was ranked # 1 in the 35's and the 45's. I would be happy to hit or give a lesson during your stay.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We had a great time staying here. We walked to the Island Explorer bus and rode around the Island. We visited Jordan Pond House and had popovers and blueberry crisp yum. We cooked lobsters and ate in the backyard. Thanks for a great house and so many conveniences.

Perfect location and spacious

  • 5 of 5

My mom, sister, and I loved our 7 days at this rental. We walked everywhere. It was everything we needed as a home base for hiking in Acadia, walking around Bar Harbor, and lounging at night.

Really great location in the heart of Bar Harbor

  • 5 of 5

This was an extremely clean, well appointed house right a couple of streets away from the downtown. It might be a bit noisy in the middle of the summer, but for the fall it was fine.

Spotlessly Clean and Convenient to Everything

  • 4 of 5

There were just two of us, so this 3 bedroom plus nursery gave us plenty of room. The house is well furnished, as is the kitchen. It is quiet. My 'white sock' test (wearing white socks when in the house) showed that this place was really clean.

It is a short walk to the main drag and everything in Bar Harbor is walkable. We left the car in the driveway (off-street parking!) unless we were leaving the area. The free bus shuttles to Acadia National Park were a marvel.

The only thing keeping the rating at 4 stars was the bed. The mattress was OK, but the bed clothes did not suit us.

Close to the heart of Bar Harbor

  • 5 of 5

The home is well-maintained and comfortable. It is only 2 blocks from the Village Green were you can catch the "Island Expolorer" or visit the town of Bar Harbor. Off street parking was nice for our rental car since there were usually other cars on the street in front of the home. The area is quiet, so sleeping was easy. It probably would be a little hot in the summer, as others mention, but in September, even with 80-degree F days, it was't bad. The space was great for a couple...plenty of room to spread out. The home owner stopped by the first evening to make sure everything was okay and called after we left to say thanks. We would likely stay here should we find ourselves in Bar Harbor, again.

great vacation--we'd use again

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Acadia Escape for the second year running and had a great time. It was perfect for our family. A five minute walk to the village green in the middle of Bar Harbor, shuttle buses and all the ice cream your kids are going to talk you into eating, it is clean and well appointed. It feels homier than some of the rental properties we've stayed at before which are fancier but feel more resortish. Mary Ellen and Augie were great hosts, responsive but not in the way. We loved it. With three small kids, having a full kitchen and grill to prepare meals saved a lot of time, tears and money, particularly at dinner where you can easily wait 45 minutes for an overpriced meal at downtown restaurants.

Great location, has everything you need!

  • 4 of 5

We had a fantastic week in Bar Harbor and the Acadia Escape worked out great for us. The location cannot be beat. Short walk to all the shops and the harbor. Short walk to the shuttle that takes you all over Acadia. We are a family of six, and although we only had one car, we were able to split up some days due to the proximity to down town and to the shuttles. Property is very clean and comfortable. Outdoor grill and patio worked out great for us. All the amenties you need from plenty of towels, to laundry, to coolers, and tons of brochures, info, and maps of the island. We had a great time!
