Why Janice chose Bar Harbor

My husband and I spent many summers here until we decided to move here in 1989. We love Acadia National Park and the towns on MDI. (And fresh lobster of course). Spend your vacation at our rental property and I'm sure you'll fall in love with Maine too!

8 Gemstone truly is a home away from home.

  • 5 of 5

We loved staying here and plan to return in 2018. It was spotlessly clean, everything worked, and the home was very comfortable. Everything was provided. Don't miss staying in this affordable home. Janice was also easy to deal with.

Home sweet home

  • 5 of 5

My family and I stayed at this home for one week in mid may. We had everything that we needed and more for a comfortable and fun visit. The house was fully equipped for both indoor and outdoor activity and was set in a pretty quiet, and convenient location. Janice, our hostess was extremely helpful and friendly. We would rent this property again when visiting Bar Harbor.

We own a home in a small New Hampshire town.

Wonderful location

  • 5 of 5

This was a great place for our family. Convient to Acadia and Bar Harbor. It is exactly as the pictures show. Janice was a great host. She was very pleasant and made the check in and out very simple. We are hoping to return to the are in the future and will definitely stay here again if it is available.
