The quaint shops and restaurants that Bar Harbor is known for are within walking distance. The Shore Path, where many of the old summer cottages are located, is the perfect place to take a leisurely walk and see the rocky shore that makes up Maine's gorgeous coast.

My place is tastefully decorated. New Hardwood flooring in Apt. B

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.

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

Looking for a quaint place to stay in bar Harbor, look no more.

  • 5 of 5

Only a few block off the main drag in Bar Harbor, this house is a perfect place to return to after a busy day of hiking, biking or just enjoying the sights of Acadia and/or Bar Harbor. With 2 small bedrooms, 2 bathrooms and 1 large multi-purpose room, this place was perfect for us (2 couples) to share. As nice as the house is, its owner (Dee Dee) is what makes this place so special. She is there to answer questions and to provide advice for things as simple as where to get a great meal to more 'complex' items like when is the best time to hike the various trails. The place was clean and well stocked for what we needed for our 5-day journey to Maine.

Owner's Response: I was amazed to hear about all the hiking you did in a day! You really did a lot of miles and took advantage of shuttle buses! Amazing! I'm glad you enjoyed your time here and was happy to hear the positive comments about the beauty and how well the park is kept up ! Thank you!

Very neat apartment with a very nice landlord

  • 5 of 5

It's a perfect place for my family of 5 to stay! The apartment was clean as new, we received a worm welcome from the landlord DeeDee who baked bread right before we arrived. She was very considerate and tried to make sure she's got everything we needed. The apartment is in a perfect location, we walked to the main street for ice cream every day during our stay, and then to the Town Pier to enjoy the beautiful sunset. I will definitely recommend this place to my friends, and stay here again for my next Maine trip.

Owner's Response: Hello Ying and family, I am sure you saw a big change and additions to the area from when you lived here in the area. Nice that your parents could visit with you. I know your dad had a great time being able to walk to town and take so many pictures at the pier. Thanks for taking time to do the review and signing the guestbook. Hope to see you if you decide to come back to the area another time. DeeDee

Beautiful place at a great location in Bar Harbor

  • 5 of 5

The place was impeccable! It was one of the cleanest and most beautiful vacation properties I have stayed in. We were a family of 6 and fit comfortably in the unit. The house is within walking distance to all the restaurants and places in Bar Harbor.

DeeDee was a great host - super warm and friendly. She stayed in constant contact before and during our stay and even made us bread the night before our departure. She also promptly discovered that we left some clothes behind and mailed them back to us quickly!

Overall a great experience!

Owner's Response: I appreciate the nice review and your positive thoughts about the location of my property. No problem in mailing you the things that were left behind. I know you had to catch a flight and were in a hurry when you left, so it is understandable. Congratulations on your recent graduation from Harvard University. Thanks again for staying here at my place. DeeDee

Acadian Dream

  • 5 of 5

This was our second time staying with DeeDee in Bar Harbor while enjoying the beauties of Acadia National Park and all the other pleasures of the area. You couldn't ask for a better location or a more comfortable home. It's not only spotless and spacious, it's filled with special thoughtful touches -- a cooler if you wish to picnic, a bird guide and binoculars to check out the wildlife, lots of menus for local restaurants. If you're exploring by car, the location is close to Acadia and the roads to Ellsworth, Northeast Harbor and Somesville. If you want to explore by foot or bike, you're within easy reach of the harbor, restaurants and shopping, including an excellent grocery store. This is the perfect way to have all the comforts of home and still enjoy your vacation in one of the most beautiful places in the U.S.

Owner's Response: Hi Nancy and all! Between you and Karen I couldn't ask for better reviews to start off this years season. Thank you so much! A big change of weather from when you spent Christmas here a couple years ago. I am so glad you came back and the weather was perfect the whole time. Great for getting outside and exploring, like you said. Thanks for leaving things in such great order. Amazing! I hope you can come back another time, you are always welcome. I look forward to hearing from you just to keep in touch. Thanks again! DeeDee

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.
