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.

Perfect for a long weekend.

  • 4 of 5

We had a great long weekend staying at this Bar Harbor house. Very comfortable and very clean! Kitchen had everything that we needed and the back yard was perfect for grilling and eating outside. Short walk to down town, Bar Path Walk, grocery store. Would rent again.

Big house, nobody lives there

  • 5 of 5

It's a nice sized house, big kitchen.. and pretty empty. It's in a very convenient location but it could really use a few books on the shelves and some art on the walls to make it look like home. A or King bed in the master might also be nice.

Nice place

  • 4 of 5

The house is clean and spacious and has everything we needed, including laundry. However, the location information on the listing is not accurate. It's at least a 15-minute walk to downtown Bar Harbor and the Shore Path, not 5 minutes, and one short stretch of the road does not have a sidewalk or shoulder. We would still recommend it, but be prepared to walk a bit further.

Clean and close to everything

  • 5 of 5

As other reviews mention this property is clean and well maintained. The owner and property manager provided excellent service. Probably the greatest strength of this property is its proximity to Bar Harbor Downtown (maybe 1/2 mile walk or less?) and Acadia National Park (few minute drive). Would definitely recommend. Place could use a few decorations though. Had a small picture of Niagara Falls in the bath and a picture of the word "Relax" in the dining room above an upright piano (also had an acoustic guitar there which was cool as we had guitarists with us). Other than that the walls were bare. More an oddity than complaint. All in all an excellent property and vacation. Would highly recommend.

This lovely home is located on a quiet residential street with its own 0.4 acre green yard in Bar Harbor (See pictures in Photos). Importantly, it is just walk distance to the famous Kebo Valley Golf Course, the free LLBean shuttles, grocery store, and less a mile from Eagle Lake and Park Loop Road of the Acadia National Park. If you are a runner or biker, you will be satisfied with the short distance to access these athletic activities. In addition, the shops and restaurants that Bar Harbor is known for are just a five minute walk from your backyard. The beautiful Shore Path, where many of the old summer cottages are located and the perfect place to take a leisurely walk and see the beauty of these historic homes, is also within two-minute walk distance. The home has two bedrooms (queen size beds), one bathroom, and a pull-out queen size sofa bed for additional sleeping. All appliances are new and the home is newly renovated and tastefully decorated. The new picnic grill and table are available in the enclosed back yard for more relax and privacy while cooking and eating outside. This lovely home will provide you the best that Bar Harbor has to offer for this summer.
