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 with a queen, - 1 with 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 with picnic table and grill to share complete the package. While the apartment comfortably holds 6, ideally this home is best suited for a family - 2 parents and kids, or 3 or 4 adults. 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 blocks 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!

Peaceful, clean, and relaxing
This was a great spot for my friend and myself to stay in while we explored Acadia National Park. It was clean, well equipped, and quiet. I would absolutely recommend this location to anyone vacationing in bar harbor.
Roomy house in perfect location
Nice accommodation very convenient to Bar Harbor and Acadia Natl Park
Comfortable and in a great location
This apartment was so comfortable and efficient. The gathering space was nice and the kitchen, while small, was very well-appointed and had everything you could reasonably need. The location could not have been better. We could walk to downtown Bar Harbor or drive to Acadia National Park within minutes. The apartment itself was on a quiet street, very private and quiet. Initially, the apartment had an odd smell, almost like a stale smell, but this seemed to disappear; not sure if we just got used to it but I don't care. I loved the apartment and would love to stay there again.
Convenient location, fully equipped home, and perfect host
My family and I stayed at Susan's home over the Thanksgiving Day weekend and had a lovely time. First, the location is perfect. We could leave the car parked at the house and walk to all the shops and restaurants in town. It took less than 10 minutes to drive into Acadia National Park. Second, the home is spacious, clean, and well stocked. The kitchen had everything we needed to cook meals. Susan had puzzles and games available, and it was convenient to have a washer/dryer for laundry. Finally, Susan was a low key but responsive host. Because everything went well, we did not need to contact her for any reason during our stay, but she let us know that she would be willing to help in any way if we just asked, and she was great about answering our questions before our arrival. Thank you, Susan! We enjoyed our stay tremendously!
Thank you for your kind words Kara! You are always welcome!
Great location, great stay!
This is a great location to enjoy Acadia National Park by day, and Bar Harbor by night/morning. You can get home after a day of exploring, leave the car in the driveway, and walk to dinner. In the morning we got up for sunrise, on the shore path, just minutes from the apartment. The apartment was clean, well stocked, and perfect for our stay. Thank you Susan!
You are so welcome! Thank you!
Great apartment, very clean, super location!
The apartment had everything we needed. It was incredibly clean! And it was located within walking distance of anywhere you could possibly want to go, grocery store, restaurants, etc. It was just 5 min from Acadia National Park. Susan was very kind and quick to respond.
