Loved it !

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Margaret's place for a girls weekend in Oct, 2016. It was fabulous. The house was very clean, nicely decorated, and plenty of room for 5 women. The kitchen was great. Living room and dining room gave us plenty of space. The front porch is a great place to have coffee in the morning or drinks in afternoon and the back patio is great for grilling and meals. Location was great and a short walk to town and the ocean. The owners were fabulous and very helpful. Overall a perfect long weekend. Would definitely come back and recommend to others

Our Family Recommends this House

  • 5 of 5

Had a wonderful stay here in August with six people. Very comfortable and perfectly situated to tour Bar Harbor and Acadia. The kitchen is well outfitted with just about everything you would have in your own home to cook and bake. House is clean and roomy, beds are comfortable and setting right in town . Questions and messages to the owners were quickly answered and helpful. We will be passing the house info on to others in the family to rent in the future.

Comfortable home, but dishonest owner

  • 1 of 5

As other reviewers have said, the location is great and the home is comfortable. However, after renting through Homeaway in 2015, Margaret asked me to rent outside of the site for 2016 (to avoid Homeaway fees), and I did so. For the entire week, we were very easy, pleasant guests. We spent nearly all day in the park. There were seven of us for the first three days, then six for the remainder. At the conclusion of our stay, Margaret acknowledged that everything was in order. Six weeks after we left, I still hadn't received my security deposit back. I emailed Margaret three times in the next two months, with no response. Finally, I called and she said that I had more than 8 people and she wouldn't give the deposit back. While her contract said no more than 9, I never had more than 7 at any point that week. I told her I could have someone else confirm that, to which she responded "I'd like that." So when that occurred, she still refused, and then stopped answering calls. I emailed two weeks ago and offered further evidence that there were no more than 7 in the house, but she continues to not respond. My concern is not so much the money, as it is the principle of withholding a deposit with no valid reason. I do not want anyone else to be the victim of Margaret's dishonesty. She doesn't have any evidence to support her (false) claim (and couldn't possibly, as it isn't true), and I want any potential renter to be warned that she has demonstrated a tendency to avoid correspondence and facts that do not align with her (incorrect) opinion.

Owner's Response: This person brought 13 people and plugged up our sewer with so many. She broke our contract with the limit of people allowed. We are not a flophouse. We provide a nice home for families.

Family Vacation!

Our family of 5 adults wanted a house in Bar Harbor, centrally located so we could enjoy Bar Harbor, Acadia National Park and the surrounding area. This house was perfect! Great location, plenty of room and enough space for everyone!

Super clean, comfortable, well equipped accommodations conveniently located in downtown Bar Harbor. Nearby entrance to Acadia National Park and within walking distance to restaurants, shopping and food market. Would not hesitate to recommend this property to friends or family.
