Guestbook comments from the manager

This is a wonderful house to bring the whole family, relax, spread out and enjoy all that Bar Harbor has to offer. This home has the BEST location in Bar Harbor. It is on an extremely nice street and part of town. We enjoyed the manicured gardens on one side and pretty quiet side streets on the other. We could head out the door and be a few steps from the iconic shore path and walk to the pier. Getting to Sand Beach and Thunder Hole was a breeze, it is one of the closest homes to this entrance of the park. Our favorite part about the location was it was only one block to the best restaurants in Bar Harbor! We love Mach Bistro, MDI Ice Cream, McKay's, and Havana’s. Chocolate Cafe was also fabulous for morning coffee and homemade bagels which is also right around the corner.

We loved the home’s big open airy kitchen, the dining room that could accommodate us all, and the large living room. We loved having two master suites, and couldn’t believe that one even had a fireplace! One master suite is located in its own section of the house that feels extremely private, and includes an extremely large soaking tub.

The patio out back is fabulous. It is quiet, private, and fenced in. Perfect for afternoon relaxation.

The Skiff House offered us in town living, quiet streets, easy access to high end amenities, and outdoor activities. It was the perfect choice for us. Thank you for the lovely rental!

Clean home within walking distance to everything

  • 5 of 5

Our family of six (2 adults and 4 kids) really enjoyed our week at Skiff House in Bar Harbor (Aug 2017). The place was clean and very spacious, and a great place to relax after a busy day of hiking in Acadia. We loved that we could park the car and walk to everything, and would definitely recommend it.

September 2017 stay

  • 4 of 5

Our family of 5 adults and 2 children enjoyed our stay, much to do for all ages and interests. The nearby shorepath had lots of tidal pools for everyone to examine and more on the low-tide hike to Bar Island. The Y opened a new playground down the street that the 5- and 1-year-olds enjoyed. The patio was a nice gathering spot for the adults to have morning coffee or pre-dinner drinks. The house is comfortable and in a quiet neighborhood off Main Street, yet not far from everything. We appreciated there being a Pack'n'Play for the baby to sleep in, the high chair, games, and the "pre-school library" for the pre-schooler. Would definitely stay there again.
