Why Kelly Corson chose Bar Harbor and Mount Desert Island

We fell in love with the property because of it's great location in town. We were also excited to put all of our own creative remodeling ideas to work. When we vacation we enjoy renting vacation homes that are central and walking distance to many of what the location has to offer. This property doesn't disappoint on it's great neighborhood and location.

Great place!

  • 5 of 5

Nice one bedroom cottage with kitchen and laundry.

Clean and very comfortable. Quiet neighborhood at night , but some road noise in the morning. Walking distance to Main St. Downtown as well as restaurants right around the corner. We rented bikes close by that we rode inside the park. It took only five minutes to drive to Acadia National park. I would definitely stay there again.

Cozy, Cute & Comfortable

  • 5 of 5

This cottage style apartment was perfect. Pictures are accurate of living space and home was well appointed with all necessities. Location to walk into town for fabulous restaurants and bars was perfect. Kelly was easy to work with and answered all questions. Make sure to stop at her restaurant Travelin' Lobster. It was delicious and reasonably priced for a whole lobster meal. Looking forward to returning someday.

Charming and Clean

  • 5 of 5

My best friend and I booked this condo for a 3-day stay in Bar Harbor to hike Acadia National Park. We loved the coastal and airy feel of the condo and it was very clean and well maintained. The bed was comfortable and we enjoyed the overhead fans as well. We spent most of our three days out on the trails, and were unfortunately unable to stop by the Traveling Lobster but would definitely consider coming back to stay again.

One unexpected benefit about Maine and this rental- the tap water is awesome! I filled up two bottles of it before we left. I can't wait to come back and see even more of this beautiful area. Thanks Kelly!
