About DeeDee (manager)

I take great pride in my rental and expect others to respect my property. You will find my place clean and updated with things that will make your stay comfortable ! We want you to be happy while you are staying here.

DeeDee (manager) purchased this apartment in 2003

Why DeeDee (manager) chose Bar Harbor and Mount Desert Island

Leave your car in the driveway and walk to town or hike in the park.

End your day in a clean, comfortable, air conditioned and quiet rental property.

What makes this apartment unique

My place is also available for monthly renting or for the season. All things are kept up like new.

I recently put in Netflix for those who like a variety of movies to watch in the evening or after a busy day of hiking and biking!

Spend some quiet time in the off season, after the hustle and bustle of the summer season. The fall is a beautiful time of the year to visit the area.

great as always

  • 5 of 5

I think this is our 4th time staying at this house so you can tell that we like it. Each time we stay we feel more and more at home and welcome. As always the home is immaculate and its location in town is ideal for enjoying all that Bar Harbor has to offer. The house is conveniently located a car ride away from Acadia National Park and walking distance from the Island Explorer buses. Dee Dee is warm and welcoming and makes sure her guests needs and comfort are paramount. We would definitely stay a 5th time.

Like staying at a friend's home.

  • 5 of 5

Date of stay, July 23 - 30, 2016. Cozy 2 story apt. suitable for the three of us. In a nice residential area, yet still close to all that goes on in the town of Bar Harbor. With Dee Dee, it was like having a personal trip advisor working to make sure our stay was enjoyable, which it definitely was. Absolutely recommend staying at Dee Dee's apartment. Everything listed online is accurate regarding location, layout, well maintained. When you go to Acadia National Park, be prepared to do some walking as once you get off the LL Bean bus, it will be a must to want to explore the coastline, and the mountains. The views are terrific. Even though we did not get to Cadillac Mountain for sunrise or sunset, the view in late morning is spectacular.

Owner's Response: Roger, Linda and Maureen, It is always amazing to me of the comments that people make about the area. You are right when you said the views are beautiful here ! Sorry you didn't make it to the mountain to see the sunset or sunrise, but you got to see the it in broad daylight which is really amazing. Thank you for the positive comments about my rental and your trip advisor, (Me). I appreciate it and always do my best to inform people about what I think they would like to do while here and also, to explain how my rental is set up for their comfort. It was a pleasure meeting all of you. DeeDee

Bar Harbor, Maine Home - Great Place to Stay

  • 5 of 5

We arrived from four different states to spend seven days together in Bar Harbor, Maine. We had looked for a pleasant “home away from home” where we could visit together, go for walks and easily tour the town and nearby locales. We found it! What a great place to stay!

THE AIR-CONDITIONED HOUSE:

On the main floor is an enclosed porch with a wood table and chairs for meals or games.

The living room has a modern TV and comfortable furniture including a rocking chair, another large chair, and a matching couch and love seat—both of which make into beds.

The kitchen is open to the living-family room and has up-to-date appliances, including a dishwasher.

On the main floor, there is a bathroom with a shower, plus a washer and dryer.

Upstairs are two bedrooms, each with a comfortable queen size bed and an up-to-date TV.

On this upper floor is another bathroom with shower.

Out back is an outdoor eating area, with chairs and umbrella and barbecue. In front is a lawn and an off- street parking spot for the apartment.

THE HOST:

What made staying here the greatest was not just the house and its excellent location. It was

Dee Dee the host/owner who made sure the house was in excellent condition from top to bottom, brought us freshly made home-made bread one night, and helped my husband surprise us with flowers. She also responded promptly to any questions we had-- even by phone and e-mail before we arrived. Her thoughtfulness, kindness and fun made us all remember this trip to Bar Harbor as one of the best adventures of our lives.

THE LOCATION:

The location is great for walking to town or to the waterfront. It also is less than a ½ hour drive to beautiful Acadia Park. The fourth of July parade with its colorful floats and marching band came right down our side street. The house was immaculately clean. It was also set up in a very nice manner. But it was Dee Dee with her knowledge of the local area, her sense of fun, and her supply of everything we needed that helped make the trip a dream.

SUMMARY:

What a great place to stay! We can’t recommend it enough—comfortable, close to

town and the water, an easy drive to beautiful Acadia State Park, and a host, whose attitude is, “How can I make your stay the best?” Thank you, Dee Dee!

Owner's Response: Pam----I finally received you much appreciated review! You really went all out, in letting others know your real feelings about my rental here in Bar Harbor! As for me, I want people to feel welcome and to know a little bit about the area and what I think would be fun and exciting for them to see while here in Acadia! The upkeep of the rental is a part of it. I aim to keep things updated and clean for everyone's comfort. It was fun for me, seeing you girls so excited to be here and to finally be together after so many years of not seeing each other. It was truly a reminder that distance and years cannot break true friendships. I hope sometime you are able to come back and bring your husbands. Wouldn't that be a treat?!! Thanks again for a wonderful review and for choosing my place for your reunion! DeeDee

Fabulous stay at Dee Dee's Apt. B!

  • 5 of 5

My three friends and I chose Dee Dee's Apt. B for our mini-reunion "home base" and found it absolutely perfect in every way. We had plenty of sleeping spaces, appreciated the two bathrooms and laundry, and loved hanging-out in the living room and kitchen/eating area. Everything was spotless, well appointed and comfortable. We enjoyed being able to cook a few meals and the ease and convenience of being able to walk to town. Dee Dee was a fabulous resource for restaurants, the grocery store and post office, the wonderful Fourth of July celebration events and all things "Acadia." We loved the fresh bread she made for us and the way that she made us "feel like family." We'd love to come back again and enjoy this wonderful place!

Owner's Response: I surely enjoyed you girls next door and seeing that you were all having such a good time. Thanks for filling me in on how you all went to school together, then parted to different areas of the states. In time , (50 years) you all decided to reunite and have a week of relaxation and fun together ! What a special vacation that was for all of you! Please come back and bring your husbands so they, too, can see this beautiful area! I appreciate you choosing my place to stay in while here. DeeDee

Perfect stay at DeeDee's place!

  • 5 of 5

We had such an amazing week and stay at DeeDee's house (Apt. B). It was meticulously clean, very updated, the perfect size for a family of four, and had everything we needed, even restaurant menus and activity brochures, along with some toys for the kids, and a washer/dryer (this was so great to have). The downstairs is very open and comfortable. The A/C worked really quickly and well. The location can't be beat - just a 5 minute or less walk to town. Having stayed in a rental outside of Bar Harbor previously, we really appreciated being able to just walk out the door and into town several times a day. And Acadia is just a short drive (5 mins) away, too. DeeDee was so pleasant and hospitable. We enjoyed seeing her in passing (she's a busy lady :-)) and being able to ask her questions or tell her quickly about our adventures. She also made us some of her super delicious bread. I highly recommend staying in DeeDee's rental. We cannot wait to visit again!

Owner's Response: Hi Allison and family, Thanks for deciding to stay at my place. It is very handy if you want to walk to places and also to get on the free shuttle buses that take you to the park. They are so handy if you don't want to drive around. I enjoyed meeting all of you and look forward to you returning in the future. Glad you enjoyed the bread! Thanks for staying here! DeeDee Shields

Excellent home away from home

  • 5 of 5

DeeDee' house was great in every way! it has two bedroom, two baths (both bedrooms and one bath are upstairs, one bathroom downstairs, along with a kitchen, living room, and nice enclosed porch with table. DeeDee greeted us when we arrived and every day, either on our way out for the day or coming home. She is very knowledgeable about Bar Harbor and Acadia NP. Most of all she was very friendly. The house is spotless, kitchen well equipped, living room has lots of reading materials (many about the area), washer and dryer great, beds very comfy. It was a perfect size for 2 couples travelling together. We walked to the Village Green, Bar Island, restaurants, shopping,, etc. Her house is close to everything. We usually prefer to go to different places for vacation, but we liked DeeDee' place, Bar Harbor, and ANP so much that we may come back. And, if we do, we'll surely stay here again!!

Owner's Response: Hi Nancy--So happy that your vacation here was a memorial one that you enjoyed each day and your stay here at my place. There is so many places to see and so much to do here in Acadia. At the end of your day it is so important that you return to a comfortable and relaxing place to rest up for your next adventure! That is what I try and do for you, make my place comfortable, clean and relaxing. Glad you liked the location as it is so handy to everything if you decide you want to walk to town and to the restaurants. Please come back sometime and check out other parts of the area that you didn't get to do! You are always welcome! Thanks again for choosing my place. DeeDee Shields

Map

Car: recommended

My place is close enough to the park entrances to bike from where you are staying or walk to the LLBean shuttle buses at the Village Green. These buses take you to different places of interest on the island. Explore the area and then at a later time after your hike, etc. you can catch the next one back to town. (Donations accepted)

Great Meadow Loop is a great hike not far from my place.

Additional information about rental rates

Tax Rate 9.0%

No pets or smoking allowed.(no cooking of shellfish due to allergies) I try and work with the travelers if it is not possible for them to book from Saturday to Saturday. Travelers staying less then a week, the nightly rate varies depending on the season and there is a $100.00 cleaning fee. Also, there is an additional charge of $100.00 for more the 6 people. The state tax is 9% that I have to charge. I usually take personal or bank checks for payments but if it is easier for you to do E-check on line when you confirm the booking, that works for me, too.
Do you need a place to relax during the holiday season? Please call and enjoy a relaxing vacation in the off season with all the comforts of home in Bar Harbors more quiet time of the year.
