About Jeff Miller

I started coming to Bar Harbor in 1982 and made it my home in 1996 when I purchased a B&B. In 2004 I sold the Inn and as a Real Estate Broker have been helping people realize the same dream I had. I now own Coastal Maine Realty, a full service company offering service to both Buyers and Sellers, Property Management, and Rentals for both year round and vacation.

Jeff Miller purchased this townhome in 2011

Guestbook comments from the owner

The house has all the amenities that you would require (even ones you may not realize you need) for the perfect family vacation. It's definitely a home away from home. The location is great for exploring all of MDI with easy access to the shuttle bus. The owner is extremely professional and gives useful tips for first time travelers to MDI. I highly recommend this place for anyone who is looking for a relaxing, convenient stay on Mount Desert Island. *****

Great base for hiking

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I and two adult sons recently stayed here for a trip to Acadia. It was very spacious and the boys loved having their own room. The extra 1/2 bath downstairs was great. The condo was very clean.We liked being outside of Bar Harbor as it was very crowded. We were able to drive the back roads to the west side of the park and hike the lesser known hikes without getting into traffic. We did venture into town each night to eat and the drive was about 10 min. All in all it was a great location and a great find. We were very pleased. Activities we enjoyed - hiked several peaks, enjoyed razorback trail, ate at Jalopeno's and enjoyed Reel pizza cinema so much we went back to a second showing. Lulu's Lobster boat tour was very interesting.

Spacious, well organized and comfortable.

  • 5 of 5

The listing was accurately described. Perfectly located just outside of Bar Harbor city area. Layout was great for families and friends as it has 3 rooms with full size proper beds and enough bathrooms for up-to 6 people. The kitchen was well appointed, well maintained and very clean. Dining area was plenty big for our group and easily accommodated 6. We did but had no need to call the owner/manager and Jeff was a pleasure to deal with both via email and phone. The deposit refund arrived immediately after the stay without deductions. I would totally recommend this property to others and will look to rent this same condo again in the future.

Great visit

  • 5 of 5

My parents and I had a very relaxed and lovely mini vacation at Bar Harbor, and the 'home' we had to come back to after a day of hiking around Acadia had a good part to play.

The 'home away' was very comfortable, clean and well kept with all the amenities we needed. We appreciated the little touches - your recommendations on good restaurants - we tried quite a few - places to see, handy maps and guide books. We would absolutely recommend this to others.

Wonderful place, gateway to Acadia

  • 5 of 5

What a wonderful place to stay with every amenity you could hope for. We traveled with 2 other couples and had plenty of room. Everything is clean and comfortable and the location was perfect; we had easy access to both sides of the island and were a quick drive to the mainland. The gas grill outside and lobster pots inside gave us a chance to try our hands at cooking local fare and there was plenty of information available on other sites to see nearby. We felt welcome the entire time and knew we could call the landlord at any time- a luxury not too often experienced. We definitely plan on coming back!
