Overview

Bar Harbor Townhome Rental Photos and Description

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.

My wife and I spent a wonderful week at Acadia Meadow for our honeymoon. Neither of us had visited Acadia prior but had high hopes of both the region and our homebase. Our expectations were exceeded in both accounts!

My biggest priority for our trip was that we stay someplace that wasn't the usual tourist rattrap, someplace that felt like a home - if not our home then at least like the borrowed home of a relative or close friend. Someplace comfortable, furnished with personal touches, with a well-equipped kitchen and a few extras that said you were in the hands of someone who wanted you to feel at home and wished for you to enjoy the area as they did themselves. For us, Todd and Suze were those people and Acadia Meadow was that home.

The house is clean and open. Most of it is the open kitchen, dining area and living room. There are picture windows that look out to a meadow beyond the lawn with trees beyond that. There's no other building to be seen. It's a wonderful view to cook by or take in from the attached private deck with coffee or cocktail in hand. It is an attached wing of the hosts' house but with its own entrance and driveway It always felt to be a private residence with a plus ... Todd and Suze themselves.

Our hosts were wonderfully available when we needed them and left us completely to ourselves when we didn't have questions about farmer's markets, or swimming holes or the best carriage roads to ride on and the best trails to hike. We had the very good fortune of staying the last week of August when Todd's vegetable garden was bursting. We were offered our full of fresh herbs, carrots, cucumbers, beets and tomatoes and took full advantage. Even if you aren't lucky enough to stay when the garden is producing, the kitchen is very nicely equipped to cook to your heart's desire. Very nice quality pots and pans, good sharp knives, cutting boards in excess and storage containers to pack away leftovers for the next day. Whether I was searching an appliance or kitchen tool or picnic cooler or binoculars to check out the wildlife (and guidebooks to identify them) I was regularly surprised at how thoughtfully equipped this place is.

The only qualification I'll add is that the house is on Route 3 set back about 50'. We knew it before we stayed. Yes, you can hear the cars but every place on the island has its reminders that the days of rustication are past. We chose to ignore the occasional muffled sounds and enjoy the simple pleasures here

Lovely as always!

  • 5 of 5

In our first return visit to Acadia Meadows, we had an even better time than last year. What a lovely place, so perfectly located close enough to Bar Harbor to get to town quickly, but right in the middle of the park with quick access for great biking and running. Suze and Todd are great hosts, with a lovely and convenient property. We hope to return next year!

Beautiful & Serene

  • 5 of 5

The owners have thought of everything to make a stay at Acadia Meadow wonderful & relaxing. The house is well-stocked with everything you need and the setting is gorgeous. Suze was very helpful in suggesting places to go off the beaten track and good restaurants to try. And the fresh greens from her garden were delicious! The location is perfect for easy access to the park or for traveling around the area. I highly recommend Acadia Meadow--

Gorgeous spot in the middle of amazing Acadia

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time at Acadia Meadows! Susan and Todd are wonderful hosts and offered us delicious produce from their garden every day. We had a great time playing Bocci ball and grilling on our own private deck. The Hammock was the perfect place to relax after a long day of hiking. We highly recommend this place if you want a peaceful retreat in close proximity to the buzz of Bar Harbour.

Truly a home away!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time in Bar Harbor and Acadia. This was a lovely accommodation and very convenient for hiking in Acadia. The kitchen was great and we enjoyed preparing some evening meals. The fresh herbs and rhubarb were a nice amenity. Propane grill and washer/dryer were nice extras. Very relaxing overall. We hope to come back some day.

Beautiful and homey!

  • 5 of 5

Great place to stay in the heart of Acadia. Beautiful house, super comfy bed, nice hot hot shower, and a kitchen that's got all you need and more. Suze and Todd receive you with their arms open and you can see right away that they care and put a lot of effort in taking good care of the house for you to have a wonderful stay. Every detail in the house is well thought out...the welcoming note on the door gives a nice personalized touch to your arrival! In addition to all that, Todd has an amazing garden...his herbs added an extra delicious flavor to our dishes! Thank you both!
