Why Li chose Bar Harbor and Mount Desert Island

This property located in the town easily access to all your needs but have spacious green garden and private backyard. Leave your car in my drive way and walk to town. You can enjoy the many restaurants and shops nearby with walk distance or take the free Island Explorer Buses (Donations excepted). These buses will transport you to other parts of the island allowing you to get off and on at different locations. My place is a short distance to the park entrances, athletic field, and many hiking/biking trails.

What makes this house unique

Single house with spacious green garden. It is a nice, cozy, clean, and well appointed place to stay, that is close to everything without being in the middle of it.

Loved this house and location!

  • 5 of 5

This house is not fancy but has everything we needed and wanted plus charm! Close to everything but far enough away to have privacy when we wanted a break from all the hustle bustle of Bar Harbor! Only thing it needs is some nice wine glasses but we made due😁

Loved the house and its location!! Recommend!

  • 5 of 5

Five of us stayed in the house over Labor day weekend for 4 days. Everything is as pictured, with more than enough facilities. Perhaps it is a good thing to note there is a spare bathroom in the basement. There is a separate TV/living room with an old couch and sofa, so best place for friends to gather along and play card games. Beds are pretty soft. Kitchen utensils are all fairly equipped. Would stay again next time.

Great Cottage!

  • 4 of 5

The place is well appointed, clean, convenient, comfortable, just what we needed!

Scott, the property manager was quick and attentive to any questions we asked.

A great place for us for a vacation.

Only one irritating thing, which knocked a star of the review: the wifi access was not reliable, and required constant rebooting of the modem and router. As the most tech-savvy member of our group, this fell to me, repeatedly. We were told this was the provider's fault (Spectrum), I don't doubt that, but regardless, in this day and age I expect this sort of basic infrastructure to work properly. Hopefully this will be resolved prior to your visit.

Just As Advertised

  • 5 of 5

This is a clean, sparsely but nicely appointed home in a quiet and pretty neighborhood. It looks just like the pictures. It is an easy walk to the restaurants and shops in Bar Harbor and short bike ride to Acadia. The property manager, Scott, was responsive and helpful. Our family had a wonderful stay.
