This creative vacation rental was designed by an extremely talented local artist. It is a short walk to downtown Bar Harbor, the shore, and offers easy access to Acadia National Park. The Island Explorer, located downtown, offers a free bus service to anywhere on the island. Located in a residential area, the top floor of this newly renovated home is a picture of serenity, peace and quiet. Surrounded by tall trees, the space is reminiscent of dwelling in a luxurious tree house! Enjoy brilliant stars on a custom stargazing bench, relaxing on a walkout deck off the master bedroom, or sitting on the private covered front porch. The spectacular bathroom is the showcase featuring a one of a kind breathtaking tile creation. As you sit in the jacuzzi tub you will be swept away into a vision of Frenchman's bay featuring the elusive Orca whale. Not your average run of the mill vacation rental. Words can not describe what it has to offer.

Very nice and very clean apartment. The host spent every effort to make it the perfect place to stay while visiting Acadia. I recommend it without reservations...
My husband and I stayed for one week in October with our 11 month old son and absolutely loved the apartment. It is in a great location, convenient to Acadia National Park and Bar Harbor. The kitchen is spacious and well stocked. The view out the kitchen window of the bright fall leaves is wonderful. The owners were very helpful, even raking a pile of leaves for our son to play in and for us to take the mandatory "our baby in fall leaves" photos!
Keep in mind that it is an upstairs apartment, so there is a flight of outside stairs to climb.
Overall, the apartment simply felt like a home and we were instantly comfortable there. Thank you for a great visit! We hope to be back again!
We haven't even left yet and I can't say enough good things about this place. Having the owners has come in so handy when asking about where to go or secret little places to try. They never bother you but if you need something its nice security to know they are right there.
The kids were in love from the minute they got here. The place is so cozy and clean and just feels like home.
The only issue we had was the washing machine but we let them know right away.
Wonderful stay. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this place at all. We usually travel out west to hike but this stay had the East Coast winning our hearts!
For those wishing to utilize the full kitchen, a quick trip 20 minute trip to the Walmart to stock the fridge and we only ate out one night. We were able to pack all the essentials for our daily hiking trips in Acadia. We read the previous renters review for Lobster about going to Trenton Bridge Lobster pound and they were absolutely SPOT ON! Hubby isn't a fan of Lobster and even he couldn't believe how amazing it was. All around....don't hesitate to stay here, you will not be disappointed.
We rented the property for Fourth of July week and couldn't have been happier. We had 6 people in the rental, my wife and children (both 5 and under) and my parents. We were worried about space being that it is an upstairs apartment, but it really wasn't an issue. The living room area is spacious, the kitchen is open and well stocked, and the bedrooms were sizable, particularly the master bedroom. One bathroom was a small issue, but it is a beautiful and enormous tub, making up for it. The living room has a massive flat screen tv, with a seemingly endless choice of channels including multiple HBO and Showtime channels. The location is unbeatable, just a few blocks from downtown, making it an easy walk, but still a quiet location. There is a wading pool across the street, and a playground about 2 blocks away. If I could find any negatives about the place I would say the leather furniture is a little beat up, the seat cushions seems to slide off rather easily, and the wireless internet is slow and spotty. That really is nitpicking, but that is the only bad thing I can say, it was a fantastic stay and we were sad to leave.
We just returned home from our stay in Bar Harbor and I wanted to make sure we reviewed this property right away. The pictures don't do this wonderful property justice. It was all we were told and more. The rental was clean and large with 3 nice size bedrooms and all the amenities described in their ad. We walked downtown every day which was just a 5 minute walk down the street. We spent alot of time in Acadia National Park which is about a 5 minute drive. Buy the week pass at Acadia there is alot to see for families and pack a lunch and water! There is no place in the park that we found to get anything to eat or drink.
The rental had a nice kitchen and we cooked a few times but ate out most of the time. There were only a couple restaurants we thought were worth revisiting. Most were very average.
"This way Cafe" was good for breakfast. I wish we had eaten here before the last day. Good food and great service!
"Trenton Bridge Lobster Pound" a must for good lobster about a 15 minute drive out of town but worth the trip!!! We had lobster 5 times this week and every other place we had lobster was a bit of a disappointment.
The ice cream place on Main street closest to the harbor was my 5 year old daughters favorite.
We would definitely go back and we have bookmarked this property so we can recommend this property to others.
We loved this rental. It was clean, quiet and in a good location. We were able to walk to town and had easy access to Acadia National Park. The neighborhood was quiet and safe. The apartment was unique and nicely decorated. The owners were friendly and helpful. We would definitely stay here again.

Bar Harbor Maine is located on Mount Desert Island which is the home of Acadia National Park. The Island features many beautiful mountains, harbors and lakes. Historical carriage roads offer excellent access to the park via foot, bike or horse! The summit of Cadillac mountain is world famous for spectacular sunrises and sunsets. Frenchman's bay is ideal for any sort of boating activity, especially kayaking. The humpback whales spend their summer in our waters, a whale watch is a must! Bald eagles soar through the air, seals lounge on the warm rocks and deer roam through the park along with many other types of wildlife. We offer the best lobster in the world, even lobster ice cream! Fine food, music, art, upscale nightlife and shopping are just a few things you will find in Bar Harbor. Mount Desert Island is a magical place.
Other Activities: Hiking, kayaking, rock climbing, whale watching, nature cruises
Golf: Kebo Valley golf Club is just a mile away...the 18th oldest golf course in the United States. The course is sorounded by the majestic mountains of Acadia National Park, offering a spectacular setting as you play the course. When you come to Bar Harbor don't forget your clubs.
