About The Owner

We love 'Ba Haba' - the magical place!

The Owner purchased this cottage in 2008

Why The Owner chose Bar Harbor and Mount Desert Island

We took our family camping in our VW Vanagon in Bar Harbor in 2007. It was our very first visit and it was love at first sight. In 2008, we purchased Blue Rose Cottage because we knew this would be a place we'd want to return to each year. We hope you feel the same way.

Guestbook comments from the owner

I first need to start by thanking you for making the Blue Rose Cottage available as a vacation rental. Unlike a hotel, we had all the comofts of home available to us and we truly enjoyed our time away. Bar Harbor was everything we expected and more. We still can't stop talking about the fun we had while hiking in Acadia Ntl. Park and all of the great food we were able to enjoy.

We spent our first full day exploring the down town area and just loved how easy it was to get around. Everything was so close, so we were able to walk to shops / restaurants and get the know the area. The rest of the week we tried to cram in as many hikes as possible in beautiful Acadia National Park. We couldn't believe all of the trails that were available, with options for every comfort level.

Can you believe we had access to a great kitchen and didn't cook a thing. (Does toasting bagels count?). Seriously, how could you expect us to cook with so many great restaurants available within walking distance? This was probably the first week in our lives that we ate only fish or seafood, every day for lunch and dinner. Loved it!

We truly enjoyed our time at the Blue Rose Cottage. Thank you again for opening up your home to us so we could explore a new area. We will definetly be back for a visit again in the future.

Great cottage with perfect location.

  • 5 of 5

Myself and my husband along with our adult children enjoyed staying at the Blue Rose Cottage. The owners provide everything needed for a carefree, relaxing vacation. They are extremely responsive to any and all questions, requests or needs and go above and beyond to make their cottage comfortable. The location is ideal for a walk in-town to restaurants, stores and a beautiful stroll along the shore. Aside from drives to the park, our cars hardly moved. There is a nice front yard with a fire pit that we used often. Thank you very much for providing us with what we needed for a wonderful vacation.

Very nice!

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed our stay at your home. It felt like being at our own home. Very clean and it worked for the 4 of us. Very close to downtown and the lobster neighbor was a great tip. We had a great time. Having the kitchen was a plus so we did not have to go out for every meal! Thanks so much for opportunity to stay. The only issue we had was using the tv, their was no list of channels that we could refer to. Our husbands watch need in am and first time on we had to type in each channel to locate.

I just spent a long weekend at this wonderful Bar Harbor House. It's perfect in so many ways. The location is so convenient. The house is adorable, decorated so tastefully. It's spotlessly clean. The beds are comfortable. The kitchen is large and has everything you need for preparing family dinners. The bathroom is new and large. The grounds are delightful as well. There is a fenced in front yard with a cozy fire pit and a seating area. And there's another side courtyard, that's also fenced in with a garden that looks ready to bloom and a picnic table. I've already book another stay here for the Fall. Can't wait to come back!
