About the property

Duplex, 1 Bedroom With Comfortable Queen Bed, Sleeps 2

Picture windows looking east, with views of Gorham Mountain and the meadow, make this home feel like it is in Acadia National Park, rather than merely surrounded by it.

In the afternoon, relax on your private back deck, watching songbirds and meadow wildlife. Or sit by the frog pond enjoying a good book and the clear Maine air. Acadia Meadow's Back Yard Bocce Court and indoor ping pong provide fun games (and easy sports to learn). There's a large back yard, a hammock for lazy days and moonlit nights and when you're ready to hit the hiking, biking, kayaking, canoeing or garden trails we'll point you to the local favorites.

Acadia Meadow is stocked with fresh herbs and vegetables (in season) from our organic garden; books, including Maine authors,;local guides and great area maps: we think, like the 'rusticators' of times past, you'll want to return to Acadia Meadow year after year.

About Suze

About the owner: I was born and raised in Bar Harbor and Tod grew up in Marin County, California. We owned and operated Bar Harbor Brewing Company and retired after selling the business in 2008. We love to garden, hike, bike, fish, gather wild mushrooms and berries and play tennis. I love to cook; creating dinner menus from the organic vegetables in Tod's garden is a highlight of each summer day. This summer Tod will focus on his vegetable garden and recovering from hip replacement surgery. I work as an EMT and ambulance driver for the town of Mt. Desert.

Suze purchased this townhome in 1992

Why Suze chose Bar Harbor and Mount Desert Island

We fell in love with the house and 2+ acre property. You can hike out your back door into Acadia National Park. The backyard opens out to a beautiful meadow teeming with wildlife. And yet we're 4 miles from downtown Bar Harbor.

What makes this townhome unique

Stars, stars and more stars at night. The night sky from the back yard Adirondack chairs or hammock is the greatest show on earth. Wildlife, including deer, Pileated Woodpeckers, fireflies & hummingbirds can usually be seen regularly while relaxing on your back deck. Location is surrounded by the most wonderful places to explore in Acadia National Park - if you forget something, or want to come home for lunch, we're just around the corner. Free Island Explorer Bus stops outside your front door June 23 to Columbus Day 2015. Acadia Meadow is the entire left wing of the house.

exactly what we wanted

  • 5 of 5

The traffic in the Northeast takes a toll on ones mood but after arrival at this beautiful spot the misery of the trip faded. The location and accommodations are perfect. Our host was the type of person who is immediately likable. This was certainly one of our best vacations.

A wonderful escape near Bar Harbor.

  • 5 of 5

Just a few miles outside of downtown Bar Harbor, a charming, clean one bedroom house with a beautiful meadow view. Suze and Todd could not be more kind or helpful. Great little extra amenities, everything was smooth and convenient from the minute we booked until we left. We felt very much at home. Highly recommend!

Great stay at Acadia Meadow

  • 5 of 5

Just returned from a week at Acadia Meadow (June 2017) and loved everything about it. Tod and Suze were great - available if you want them, but left us to do our own thing otherwise. They were welcoming and generous (we took advantage of their garden, like many others have stated) and have appointed the house with everything you could possibly need. The thought they have obviously put into the place is evident at every turn. We actually ate more meals at home (which is how we referred to the place) than we did on the town. You won't regret renting this place. The proximity to Route 3 was a non-issue. We were there to explore Acadia (which is amazing) and Acadia Meadow was the perfect home base. It was more than a place to keep your stuff. We enjoyed our time "home" as well. We don't often duplicate trips with so much to see in the world, but if we ever return to Acadia, we know where to go.

Look no further!

  • 5 of 5

We had an amazing stay at Tod and Suze's place. So close to Acadia to get some daytime hiking in before heading into downtown to eat and shop. Not only is the duplex clean and cozy but it's also stocked with everything that you need. We hope to stay again!

Great location near Acadia

  • 5 of 5

Tod and Suze's home was beautiful and well appointed to make our stay very comfortable. There were many thoughtful touches throughout like the welcome note, smiley faces pressed into the cushions and rock cairns throughout. The house is located just a couple minutes down the road from an entrance to Acadia so it was very convenient staying there. They include a vegetable list of available produce from there on site garden that you can request from which was a nice extra touch! We would definitely recommend their apartment to anyone looking for a warm but private place to stay while visiting Acadia and Mount Desert Island.

Acadia National Park and Bar Harbor offer all the activities you can imagine! Hike or bike into the park, catch the free Island Explorer bus outside your front door or drive and explore Downeast Coastal Maine. Tod and I will point you to the local favorites.
