Overview

Bar Harbor and Mount Desert Island House Rental Photos and Description

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.

Great location!

  • 5 of 5

My friends and I spent a week at Acadia Escape in mid May. We were very pleased with the close proximity to the restaurants and shops in Bar Harbor as well as Acadia National Park. We hiked or walked in the park every day then could come back and walk to dinner if we didn't feel like cooking. Although you could eat every meal in, as the kitchen was well stocked for any type of meal you'd want to prepare. Augie and Maryellen were very helpful with any questions or problems we encountered. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would recommend to anyone who wants to be close to the attractions in Bar Harbor without being right in the midst of the fray.

Wonderful home to spend our vacation!

  • 5 of 5

We spent two weeks at Acadia Escape. Maryellen and Augie were fantastic. Great communication and are only a stone's throw away should you need them.

We brought our family with us for the first week which included 2 small children and they could not have been happier here.

We rode our bikes most days to town; it provided for great exercise and just made our whole time there perfect.

The street was very quiet for the most part and not bothered by the many visitors to Bar Harbor. We had plenty of parking for our car, 4 bikes and a very long truck. Room to spare.

Perfect house, perfect size and perfect hosts! We will stay again!

Comfortable and well equipped

  • 5 of 5

A lovely house only a few streets away from the harbour, shops and restaurants; we couldn't have asked for a better location.

Maryellen was very welcoming and provided everything visitors need to make their stay comfortable. We made good use of the lobster plates, crackers and butter bowls.

If you're looking for comfort and a central location in Bar Harbor, this is the place to stay.

Perfect!

  • 5 of 5

We arrived with two young children during a cold and snowy March. The house and owners could not have been more welcoming. We had two cleared spots for parking and a toasty, comfy home. The house is spacious and very child friendly. We had everything we needed. The beds were so comfortable. The kitchen was well stocked. We were able to feed eight at the dining room table. There were even enough wine glasses!

Many thanks to the Lozanos!!

Great experience in this cozy home

  • 5 of 5

This was our first time to rent a home instead of a hotel for a vacation. We were not disappointed in Acadia Escape. I was a little leary about paying in full (including a security deposit) in advance, but everything went smoothly. Our security deposit was returned to us promptly after our stay. The home is perfectly located to downtown Bar Harbor. The city is very touristy and crowded due to cruise ships arriving several times a week. We found that it wasn't worth the wait at the local restaurants downtown. It was so nice to have a full kitchen so that we could eat meals at home. Mary Ellen has thought of everything that a traveler might need. The home has a nice sized kitchen, dining room, living room, baby room, three bedrooms and one full bath. There is a washer and dryer in the basement that we used. The beds were comfortable and the neighborhood was quiet. I probably will leave out some details but we appreciated some of the small touches the home offered like maps and menus from local restaurants, a land-line telephone, large screen tv in living room, ceiling fans as well as box fans in bedrooms, large dining room table and hutch for storage, games and coloring books, and several more conveniences. We enjoyed our long days at Acadia National Park which is a short drive from the home. Our family all agreed that we would love to stay here again.

Great place in a great location

  • 5 of 5

We had a great stay thanks to a lovely home that was very conveniently located. Being from Manhattan, the house had a lot more space than I knew what to do with! All the amenities I needed were available, and the owners were very welcoming. I would definitely go back and maybe start an annual tradition.
