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.

Newly Remodeled Downtown Bar Harbor Maine Apartment
average rating of 4.8 based on 10 reviews

Not a bad place, but I wouldn't stay again.

  • 3 of 5

The positives of this home are the proximity to downtown. Sidewalks the whole way and a quick walk. It was nicely decorated. And even though it is small, the space is used well.

The negatives were that there was no satellite/cable TV which the listing claims to have. You get a couple of basic channel options that's it. There was someone's used hair clip clipped onto the inside shower curtain and a receipt poking out of the bedroom wall left behind from a previous party. And lastly when neighbors arrived on our last day we could clearly hear them.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review. Yes we love that that our property is so close to everything. I did want to remind future guests that it does clearly state basic cable in the property description channels 3-20. As I also mention this is a duplex property with an adjoining wall. My apologies that we didn't fully meet your expectations. Phil & Kelly

Wonderful bijou apartment

  • 5 of 5

Had a wonderful stay at this apartment. It was very clean, extremely comfortable and in a quiet residential area only 10min walk into the centre of town. It had everything we needed for a 3 night break and there is a large supermarket just around the corner if you need provisions.

Kelly was very helpful throughout the booking process and it was nice to meet her at The Travelin Lobster, where we had the most fantastic lobster dinner!

Would definitely choose to stay here again if we're ever in Bar Harbor.

Perfect property for any couple

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed here at the beginning of the 2016 season. The home was very clean and inviting, and it was so great to be able to walk to all the downtown Bar Harbor shops and restaurants! (Parking downtown wasn't too much of an issue since the season wasn't in full swing yet - but traffic was still pretty heavy. This home is located right off the highway as it heads into town, so getting in and out was very convenient.)

I will say to make sure you visit the owner's lobster shack. (It's The "Original" Travelin Lobster. Their lobster rolls were absolutely stuffed with meat, and they were definitely the most delicious of all the ones we tried on the island. Try the stew, too!)

Perfect location and stay

  • 5 of 5

We had a great stay at Kelly's home. We were walking distance to all the great downtown Bar harbor stores and restaurants and less than 10 minutes from the entrance to the park. We were able to rent bikes, kayaks, and hike without worrying about parking our car in Bar harbor. The apartment was very clean and had all the amenities we needed. It was a perfect size for 2 people. The only thing we would recommend is to get curtains in the bedroom because it was very bright at 4:00 am. Otherwise we had a great stay- Thanks again!.

Perfect size and location!

  • 5 of 5

This rental had everything we needed for our stay in Bar Harbor. Great location on a quiet street, only a short walk to the downtown shops and restaurants, and just a quick drive to Acadia. And the size is ideal for two people on a longer stay. Very comfortable space with enough elbow room. Loved the cozy, cottage feel to it. We didn't want to leave and will surely be back!
