Why Kim Zarra Wieler chose Bar Harbor and Mount Desert Island

The story begins with Tom & Carrie Witt, from Hamden, CT. Carrie and Tom both fell in love with Bar Harbor and Acadia National Park on their honeymoon in October 1995. They came back every year and purchased the cottage in 2004. Over the years, when the cottage wasn’t being rented by visitors Carrie and Tom shared their home, love, knowledge, and stories of Acadia with family and friends. It was during one of these visits that Carrie and Tom first introduced friends, Kim & Bill Wieler to Bar Harbor and Acadia National Park. Much time was spent outdoors biking, hiking, cross country skiing and snowshoeing in and around the park, crossing the sand bar at low tide to reach Bar Island to enjoy the fields of lupine on their way to the top to view the harbor or by exploring downtown Bar Harbor and surrounding areas. Kim and Bill have been coming back ever since. Sadly, Tom passed away in 2010 and then Carrie in 2012. Their love for Asygarth Cottage and Acadia never diminished. They both found joy, peace, strength, and endless courage in the quiet trails and majestic vistas of Acadia. Kim and Bill will be forever grateful for their friendship and hospitality and now would like to welcome you to Bar Harbor Cottage.

Guestbook comments from the owner

we explored Acadia, Schoodic Point, shopped, and enjoyed delicious meals at the Black Friar Inn, Galyn's, Geddy's and Jordan's. We created lasting memories during our stay at this charming cottage.

It was perfect!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay here! The location could not have been more perfect- right across the street from Hannaford, and just a 2 minute walk to all the shops downtown. Kim could not have been more accommodating. She truly had anything you could possibly need stocked in the house. The cottage is comfortable and homey but also spacious enough for our large group. I would definitely stay here again and I highly recommend it. Thanks for everything, Kim!!

Wonderful Place in Bar Harbor

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay in this home in Bar Harbor. Excellent location for walking to everything in town....just steps away from the grocery store and just a short walk to historic downtown, Bar Island Trail, restaurants and shops. The home was spacious and comfortable and outfitted with everything you need for the perfect stay. The owner was more than helpful with all of our needs. We spent the week hiking....for the more adventurous hiker....the home is walking distance to many of the trails leading into Acadia!! We would love to stay here again and recommend it highly!!

What a Wonderful Home

  • 5 of 5

Great place to start and end all of your daily trips to Acadia National Park. A 5 minute walk to the Village Green to catch the FREE Island Explorer bus service. Less than 2 minute walk to the only Grocery store in Bar Harbor.

The A/C works great and the bedrooms are very comfortable, with plenty of storage. Kitchen is well-stocked with both cooking supplies and leftover containers.

Really enjoyed our stay here and look forward to returning.

Comfortable cottage in Bar Harbor

  • 5 of 5

This cottage is located in a perfect area of Bar Harbor. It is so close to a grocery store, restaurants, water and more. The house itself was comfortable and spacious. Being able to park our car and walk around or take shuttles was extremely convenient. Staying at this property definitely made our Bar Harbor experience. The owners are really nice and made it easy to book. We would love to return someday!

Great House, Great Location, Walking distance of Bar Harbor and Acadica National Park

  • 5 of 5

This is the 8th year we have rented this house.

The house is always clean and the owner provides great service.

The house is fully equipped with sheets, towels, kitchen supplies, grill and sauna.

This location is perfect for walking to all the events and restaurants in town.

It is an easy walk to the LL Bean Explorer bus for exploring Acadia National Park.

The Hanford's grocery store is just across the street.

Some of our favorite restaurants are: Jordan's on Cottage St for blueberry pancakes, Stewmans, Fishhouse Grill on West St for seafood, Jordan Pond for popovers and many more.

We plan to return next summer.
