Bar Harbor Apartment Rental Photos and Description

Apartment, 1 Bedroom + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2-4)

The Chickadee Suite is an immaculately kept, fully-equipped Suite that has a lovely view of Cadillac Mountain from the back deck.

Your private entrance passes by one of our gardens often visited by the ruby-throated hummingbird and many chickadees.

One of our guests had this to say about this Suite: 'We love it here!! To find Hummingbird Suites was to find a slice of heaven in the midst of an already perfect oasis. Can't wait to come back. You are gracious & thoughtful and this is truly the best place we have ever stayed on any vacation'.

About Kevin and Donna Kane

Donna and I built Hummingbird Suites ourselves and named it after Donna's favorite

bird. Kevin works at a local genetic research facility and Donna is a beautician and runs her own Salon. Kevin is from Florida and Donna from Massachusetts.

Kevin and Donna Kane purchased this apartment in 2002

Why Kevin and Donna Kane chose Bar Harbor and Mount Desert Island

We live so close to the national park and we had so many friends from other States always wanting to stay with us because of the beauty and so many outdoor activities that we decided it was a great location for a vacation rental.

What makes this apartment unique

Hummingbird Suites is only one mile from the National Park and yet close to town but you don't have to fight the traffic of an in-town location. Also we have plenty of parking which can be quite an issue in town. Our favorite activity is watching the numerous hummingbirds that spend their summers here at the Suites visiting a variety of flowers in our gardens.

Guestbook comments from the owner


As I sit here on the back deck of my suite sipping my tea

The morning sun peaks over the roof to warm and greet me

In the distance Cadillac Mountain is raising its bald head above the trees

And I am surrounded by hummingbirds and chickadees

The scent of flowers and pines fill the air

I don't have a single care

The place I am staying has two quiet suites that are as clean as pins

And I highly recommend them over the Bar Harbor Inn's

They are located just a few miles from downtown Bar Harbor

on Highway 3

Which is most convenient as you will see

If and when I come back to Maine I will stay here again

I highly recommend them over any Bar Harbor Inn

You can take it from me the place is hard to beat

And they call the place the Hummingbird Suite

Can't say enough good things about the Chickadee Suite! We were celebrating our anniversary and stayed for two nights, and would have loved to stay longer. It's lovely; tastefully decorated, comfortable in every respect, homey, and practical with its fully equipped kitchen and renovated bath/laundry room. From the back porch we could see Cadillac Mountain by day and millions of stars by night; just beautiful. We were there during the first week in October, and many plants in the pretty hummingbird garden out front were still in bloom.

We didn't meet Kevin, but Donna was very nice. She greeted us on our arrival and suggested some things to do and a nearby restaurant, the Chart Room, which was excellent for dinner.

There was a little daytime road noise outside from busy Route 3, but inside the suite it was very quiet and serene, and we heard nothing at night.

Many thanks to Donna and Kevin for providing such pleasant lodging! We thoroughly enjoyed our short time in the Chickadee Suite, and will definitely try to stay there again next time we're in the area.

A great place to relax!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed our time at the Chickadee Suite and all the "little" touches Donna and Kevin provide to make it "home". The fully equipped kitchen could have been used for every meal, complete with a full size oven and refrigerator! There was a small gas BBQ on the back deck as well. Everything was super clean and comfortable. And there is a TV in the main sitting room/kitchen, as well as one in the bedroom (not that we were in the suite that much!). The only "be advised" is that it is located directly on Rte. 3, and early morning road noise can be your wake up call. Other than that, everything is just lovely! Conveniently located to Acadia, Bar Harbor and all of MDI.

Quaint, Clean and Comfortable

  • 5 of 5

This small suite is perfect for one or two people. The king bed allows for a wonderful night of rest and the fully updated, equipped kitchen is perfect for making meals at 'home.' There is a nice little deck off of the bedroom, allowing for a little place to sit and relax. The suite is extremely clean with no details missed. Additionally, the location is perfect for exploring any part of the island.

Everything We Hoped For

  • 5 of 5

We found the Chickadee Suite with its king-size bed and separate siting room with kitchenette to be very conveniently located, impeccably clean, wonderfully designed with every thought given to convenience by the gracious hosts, Donna and Kevin. We stayed three days, including one day of rain, and couldn't have been more comfortable.
