Overview

About the property

Nonsmoking, Immaculate 2 bedroom , 1 queen, 1 twin-trundle, and sleeper sofa

This charming, immaculate, and nonsmoking older home's interior was newly renovated in 2014. Located on a quiet side street in a family neighborhood in downtown Bar Harbor. It has an open floor plan & hard wood floors throughout. All new appliances. There are 2 bedrooms - 1 has a queen, - 1 has a twin-trundle, plus a queen sleeper sofa in living room. A port-a-crib is available. The walls are hung with original paintings of Mount Desert Island, and Acadia National Park. Full laundry, wi-fi, cable tv, and a pleasant yard to share complete the package. While the apartment comfortably holds 6, ideally this home is best suited for a small family - 2 parents and kids. The trundle bed is not to be used by anyone weighing more than 100 lbs.

We are situated in the southeastern end of town, and are a few minutes walk to The Village Green, and the Island Explorer bus hub (runs from Jun-Oct) , Mount Desert Island Hospital, The Abbe Museum, Jesup Memorial Library, St. Saviour's Church and its' Tiffany stained glass windows, Reel Pizza, and all the shops and restaurants. Town Pier, Agamont Park, Albert Meadow, the YMCA, Compass Harbor, the Jackson Lab, and the majestic views of the Porcupine Islands are all within a 5-10 minute walk.

We are also within walking distance to the Village Connector trails into Acadia. Compass Harbor and the ruins of George Dorr's family home are just a few blocks south. The Schooner Head Path is accessed off the Compass Harbor Trail. The Great Meadow Loop is accessed off Cromwell Harbor Road, just north of the ball fields. It connects to Jesup Path, Dorr Mountain, Homans Path, Kebo Connector Trails, and much more.

For winter visitors - Acadia National Park is a winter wonder-land! Hiking (crampons a must), Nordic Skiing on groomed trails in the park, snow-shoeing, skating, ice-fishing, & sledding are all in the mix. Winter night skies are hypnotizing. We have the darkest skies east of the Mississippi. If you are interested in astronomy and star-gazing - ANP is your place!. MDI & ANP are under appreciated in winter! Do yourself a favor and come to this magical frozen place!

Comfortable, well-appointed and convenient

  • 5 of 5

My family enjoyed staying in Susan's apartment for a Winter weekend in Bar Harbor and Acadia. The space is nicely renovated with comfortable beds and furniture, nice linens, beautiful hardwood floors and art work. We had everything we needed in a relaxing, uncluttered atmosphere. It's very convenient, just a short walk to downtown and the waterfront or a quick drive into the park. We hope to stay again.

Comfortable Place to Spread Out

  • 4 of 5

This is a comfortable old house located right in town. You can easily walk to shops and restaurants and it's a quick drive in to Acadia NP. The kitchen is nicely remodeled and the rest of the house is charming as well. The wi-fi was great too! My only complaint was that the hot water was VERY limited. It should be noted that the outside temps were hovering around 0'F, but there definitely wasn't enough hot water for one person to take a thorough shower, let alone two people. Hopefully it's not an issue when the outside temps are warmer though. Overall a great stay!

Owner's Response: Hi Lindsay! I'm so sorry you had the problem with hot water! I have never had a complaint about that, and wish you had addressed it with me when you were here! I have subsequently had 2 other groups of visitors,and no complaints. I will check with my plumber. The out door temperature should have no impact on the amount of hot water available. There is a 25 gallon tank for each unit. Thank you for the feedback. I will have a plumber here today. Susan

We had a great stay at Susan's apartment. Kitchen is well appointed, bed is super comfortable and the location is perfect – afraid to let others know how great Bar Harbor is off season!!

Close to everything and a great host

  • 5 of 5

The rental was all we needed. It was warm, well equipped, spacious and very close to town. We walked to the shops, to eat and to the shore path most days/nights during our stay. The proximity to Acadia was also great. Highly recommend this rental to anyone (families included). Thanks to Susan our host.
