Overview

About the property

Ledgelawn Cottage, a nineteenth century beauty on Bar Harbor's historic Ledgelawn Avenue, is steps from all the attractions of downtown and five minutes from Acadia National Park. Stroll to the village green, fine restaurants and quaint specialty shops, the Abbe Museum, Shore Path, free Island Explorer bus, tennis courts, playground and wading pool. Just a mile to Acadia National Park and the famed Kebo Valley Golf Course. We comfortably accommodate up to eight guests in this spacious family home, decorated with a blend of new and antique furnishings. Ledgelawn Cottage offers guests 3,000 square feet of living space on two floors.

Enter the house through the large enclosed front porch with ample seating, the perfect spot to relax with your morning coffee and plan the day's adventures. Once inside the central entrance hall, you will see the spacious living room to your left, with comfortable seating and large flat screen HDTV, home theater speakers, and DVD player. To your right is the reading room, well stocked with travel guides and maps, a table and chairs for studying the many brochures and area menus, shelves of books for children and adults, and a recliner for dozing or reading a good book. Old-fashioned pocket doors lead from the reading room into the sun-filled dining room, with lots of room for family meals or playing board games from the corner china cabinet.

Crossing the hall past the powder room, you will find yourself in a large, fully stocked kitchen blending antique charm with modern amenities. Every effort ha been made to ensure that guests have all they need to prepare meals for both indoor and outdoor dining.

Just past the kitchen is a sunny hallway leading to the laundry and shower rooms. A washer and dryer, drying rack, laundry baskets and detergent, ironing board and iron are provided. The separate shower room provides guests with a convenient place to wash up upon returning from hiking or biking in Acadia. Shelves hold fluffy towels, and a hairdryer and variety of soaps are provided.

Four steps down from the rear hallway is the charming patio room. Surrounded by antique glass windows and featuring a brick floor, this large space has comfortable outdoor furniture for relaxing, as well as a table with wooden dining chairs and a cooling ceiling paddle fan. Just outside the back door is the gas grill, and a picnic table is placed in the shade across the big fenced backyard.

The second floor has four comfortable bedrooms with a range of bed sizes. The master bedroom has a king-sized bed with memory foam mattress. There is a room with a queen-sized bed, a room with a double brass four-poster, and a room with two twin beds. A pack-and-play and a wooden toddler bed are available upon request.

While we hope our visitors come to Ledgelawn Cottage to relax, we also provide a second-floor office equipped with computer, multi-function printer, and high speed internet Wi-Fi which is available throughout the house.

A skylit full bath with shower tub, towels, hairdryer and soaps completes the second floor.

Ledgelawn Cottage is a non-smoking, no pet vacation home.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Thank you for sharing your beautiful home. It was so convenient and welcoming on every level. My 84 year old mother (who was a home economics teacher) commented that it's the best equipped place that she has ever rented.

For me, it was the perfect place to gather our grown daughters from all over the country for a precious few days of family bonding with our extended family.

Midsummer in Bar Harbor

  • 4 of 5

The house is roomy and comfortable with enough space for six adults and two small children. It was exactly like the description. We enjoyed the variety of spaces to sit and talk.

The location is ideal. It's an easy walk to the center of town and the harbor. There's a playground nearby also. Not having to worry about parking was great.

We were in Bar Harbor for the longest days of the year. Some days the sun was very bright very early in the morning.

Great location and very clean

  • 5 of 5

We came for a reunion weekend, and we loved the house. All the instructions were clear, and the house was very clean. It is a great location and easy to walk to town. The bedrooms were nice-sized, and it was helpful to have an extra shower room downstairs. We didn't cook at all, so I can't speak to kitchen utensils and cookware, but there is a grill outside in the very cute backyard. The only downside was that the wifi was a little spotty. Julie was wonderful and extremely helpful; one of my friends left her kindle, and Julie emailed immediately to offer to send it to her. Overall, great place to stay in Bar Harbor!

Spacious and charming..

  • 5 of 5

We just returned from a wonderful stay at Ledgelawn Cottage - Bar Harbor. Six of us were visiting the area for a wedding and LC was the perfect place. The house has everything you need and is full of historic charm. The best part is that it is close to downtown while still being in a quiet area! I would definitely recommend.

Fantastic Vacation Rental!

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our week-long stay. The house was perfectly located in downtown Bar Harbor, within easy walking distance to all the shops, restaurants and buses. We spent much of our time hiking in Acadia National Park, which is a short drive away. The house was described perfectly and the pictures showed exactly how the house looked. It's a old house with tons of charm and character and has all of the modern conveniences you could want. The washer/dryer, dishwasher, and tankless water heater were a huge plus! There were even board games, puzzles and books which were fun for a rainy afternoon. There was plenty of room to accommodate a large group. We had five people and there was definitely room to spare. Julie was great to deal with as far as any questions we had before arriving and there was a great information packet waiting for us when we got there. We would love to stay here again and would highly recommend this house to anyone looking to stay in Bar Harbor.
