Why Marilyn & Steve Ryan chose Bar Harbor
We bought this property because it is beautiful, close to town and has no neighbors. We built all the buildings, including our home. We have a gorgeous view into Acadia National Park, one of the most beautiful places in the world.
What makes this Cottage unique
Surrounded by the Acadia National Park, pure water from our 600 foot deep well, room for dogs and kids to play outside, 3 miles from town, 1 mile from Eagle Lake - the perfect place to be! Walk or take your bike down the driveway and you are on the trails in Acadia National Park.

Overall...a very nice stay. Quiet location away from the hustle and bustle of downtown Bar Harbor but close enough to get there easily. Also - a great location to get to the park, especially if you like to ride bikes as the carriage trails are close by. Definitely fit 7 guests comfortably. Wonderful and safe place for pets, as illustrated by the fenced in dog yard which was a special treat. Ample parking. Hosts are very responsive and accommodating. My only (small) criticisms would be the size of the shower and the A/C unit. To be fair - it was almost in the 90s there which seems to be generally uncommon. When the temps dropped - it was quite nice with the windows open! Finally, some of the best stars I ever saw were witnessed from the back deck!
Carriage House Apt Stay
Loved our stay at The Carriage House apartment. The owners are so accommodating and go out of their way to make you feel welcome. Great place for our 3 dogs, loved that we were able to access the carriage trails in Acadia right from the property. One of the best rental experiences we have had, highly recommend them!!
Close to everything
Beautiful property. Close to everything you want to do! This is probably the best place to stay to get you all over Mount Desert Island, Acadia National Park, Bar Harbor. Best time!!!
Great place to stay
Everything was great, would stay there again. The only “issue” was that I didn’t realize I was renting a second floor apartment. A little rough on my 12 year old dog but she had a great time there anyway.
Quiet yet close to everything
Nice place, convenient location.
Close to Bar Harbor and Acadia yet private. Near the top of Somes Sound so one can get anywhere on the island easily. The owners are usually available on the property to address any issues you may have and are interesting, kind, and even loved our vocal Yorkies (and their dogs were gracious hosts to our dogs too).
We had our tandems in tow (bicycle and kayak) and had no trouble with parking our small trailer.
The Carriage house is roomy, clean, and with enough modern niceties (like AC and Internet) to make your stay relaxing, comfortable, and enjoyable.
Without question, we will book here the next time we head to Acadia.
Very dog friendly. Quiet and convenient location. Spacious. Not fancy at all and could use some updating but that should be expected based on the price (less expensive than similar sized rentals in Bar Harbor). Grounds and living area were clean.
Hi, if you come back next year, look at www.ryanestaterentals.com which is our website and choose the Mountain View. New floor, tongue in groove knotty pine interior, bigger kitchen, amazing view 15 Miles into Acadia National Park. Ask about discount . Glad you had a good stay. Thanks for the review.
Ryan Estates is located on 7 private, wooded acres, surrounded on all sides by Acadia National Park. The park trails begin at the bottom of our driveway. We are only 3 miles from downtown Bar Harbor, and one mile from beautiful Eagle Lake. You can hike or bike right from your door into the park. Pets and kids are always welcome.
