About the property

4 Bedroom/2 Bathroom, Sleeps 10

Beautiful flora, a lovely stone wall and a garden of wild strawberries (fraises des bois), chives, and parsley greet you when you arrive at this charming 3-story villa. Located on historic Ledgelawn Avenue, in the village of Bar Harbor, Ledgelawn Villa is a sweet, comfortable family home, and the perfect home-base for your Bar Harbor/Acadia vacation. Just a few blocks from the Village Green in the center of town, Ledgelawn Villa is convenient to all the shops and restaurants in Bar Harbor and about a mile from Acadia’s Park Loop Road. And the pretty back yard and deck provides you with nice private out door space too!

The 2000 sq ft, 3-story house has a comfortable eclectic motif of antiques, modern furnishings and interesting artwork. There are 4 bedrooms: a king bedroom on the 2nd floor, another king bedroom on the second floor; a queen bedroom on the 3rd floor, and a bedroom with two daybeds with trundles on the 3rd floor (4 twins total in this room), sleeping a total of 10.

There are two bathrooms: one with clawfoot tub and shower on the 2nd floor; one with shower only on the 3rd floor.

The main floor features a living room, dining area (seats up to 10), kitchen and a sunroom den (nice spot for reading!). The open front porch has a swing, and there is a lovely back yard and deck to enjoy your BBQ’d lunch outdoors!

Not the best

  • 1 of 5

We decided to rent Ledgelawn Villa to accommodate two families and for its in town location. But be warned that Ledgelawn Ave is a busy short cut for large trucks and commuters. It is a narrow street with cars parked on each side. There is often not enough room for two vehicles to pass without one pulling over. This leads to large trucks accelerating up and down the street and angry commuters honking at each other. It is a residential area with houses close together so you have to stay quiet at night. On our first night the owner who lives next door told us to “move it inside” when talking on the front porch.

The house itself is an older New England colonial with all of the charms and issues of an older house. There is no down stairs bathroom. The second floor bathroom has a claw foot tub with a shower curtain. This tub is high off the ground which makes it difficult to get in and out of. I would definitely not recommend it to anyone with mobility issues. The shower curtain clings to you when taking a shower. The third floor bathroom is awkward. It is between two bedrooms, with a door to each bedroom. You have to keep both doors closed to get privacy in the bedrooms and then you are never sure if the bathroom is occupied when you want to use it.

The kitchen works but is dated. The dishwasher is portable, so you have to wheel it over to the sink and hook it up to the faucet. We found it easier to wash dishes by hand. We also observed mice in the kitchen scurrying around at night.

The rules of the house say to make sure the grill is clean when you leave. We found the top grate to be clean but when we used it there was so much stuff under the grate that it ignited. We had to scramble to extinguish the flames before the acrid smoke ruined our meal.

There was one heavy pot in the kitchen that looked like someone had put on the grill, with flame marks going up the side. The owner falsely accused us of “scorching” the pan. He did not return $45 out of our security deposit for the pan we did not “scorch”.

Bottom line: If you can find someplace else that meets your needs, take it. If you do rent it, make sure you take an inventory of the kitchen with the owner on arrival making a note of anything not in perfect condition. And don’t leave any fruit on the counters overnight for the mice.

Owner's Response: Of course we are saddened and sorry that these guests had a negative experience at Ledgelawn Villa, and wrote such a poor review of the property. As the rental agency who rents this property on behalf of the owner, we work hard to resolve any issues. We never heard any complaints from this party during their week's stay about mice, and would have addressed such an issue immediately! Nor has any other party in the 3 seasons we've rented this property ever mentioned seeing evidence of mice. As for the "dated" furnishings, etc., we feel the photos we provide show the furnishings as they are. And frankly all in-town Bar Harbor properties have to deal with some noise. It's a busy place with cars, pedestrians, etc. We would have recommended something out of town to these guests had they indicated wanting a more quiet setting. We feel the reason this review was written is because the owner found a scorched pot when she came in after check-out. She knows the house, knows her appliances and furnishings, and knew that the pot had not been scorched when she cleaned the week before. She told us it looked like it was put on the BBQ grill. We are sorry that these guests were unhappy with the deduction. But had they told us about the damage prior to their checking out or even with a note at check-out time, we might have been able to avoid the damage deduction from their security deposit. —Rebecca, Bar Harbor/Acadia Cottage Rentals, Inc.

Very comfortable

  • 5 of 5

A group of 10 of us, 2 families, 4 adults and 6 kids. We loved this house. We had everything we needed. We walked to town, and enjoyed quiet evenings at home. We were in close proximity to hiking and biking and we took advantage of the Acadia transportation system. We had comfortable beds, a clean and pretty home and everything we needed for the few meals we made at home. Coffee on the back deck in the morning, beers on the porch swing in the evening while the kids went for ice cream. We all hope to be back! Thank you!
