About Kevin and Donna Kane

Donna and I built Hummingbird Suites ourselves and named it after Donna's favorite bird. Kevin works at a local genetic research facility and Donna is a beautician and runs her own Salon. Kevin is from Florida and Donna from Massachusetts.

Kevin and Donna Kane purchased this apartment in 2002

Why Kevin and Donna Kane chose Bar Harbor and Mount Desert Island

We are only 15 minutes from the top of Cadillac Mountain. We are in such a beautiful area and our friends from other States were always wanting to come here to explore the area so we built the Suites, not just for our friends but for others who would appreciate what this area has to offer.

Kevin came here just for the summer from Florida in 1987 to work as head keeper at the local zoo. He loved it so much that he never left. Donna visited here for many years from Massachusetts and decided to move here in 1991. We married in 1992 and we both love it here. We love hummingbirds so much that we decided to name our place after them since we have so many that visit our gardens.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Dear Donna and Kevin,

Thank you for this perfect home far away from home.

We wished to find something special for this weekend but we

didn't dream to find such a wonderful place like this. We enjoyed the time here very much!

It was fun to discover everything in this suite. You have thought about everything a guest could ever need! Thank you very much for that. Besides it was also fun to discover all the hummingbirds.

We wish you many guests who appreciate all this.

You created very good memories for us, when we are back in Germany.

FABULOUS !!

  • 5 of 5

This place is a gem!! We thoroughly enjoyed our stay here, we walked in and were so happy to see how spotlessly clean it was. So cozy and well furnished, the bed was so comfortable and the kitchen has everything you need to cook with. We slept really well, and found it to be quiet. We loved sitting in the yard with our glass of wine each evening relaxing surrounded by beautiful flowers and watching the antics of the ducks, and chickens. What a beautiful yard!! It is super close to Arcadia National Park which is why we came to Bar Harbour. Also the downtown area has so many great restaurants and shops to keep you busy, but really driving around to explore the natural beauty was just fantastic!! Donna and Kevin were great hosts so easy to talk to and full of information about the local area, and recommended some gardens and other hidden area's to check out that were just great!! They really take pride in their property and you just have to look around to see that. We will definitely be back. What a great find this was!! Thanks so much for a fabulous and relaxing vacation.

Beautiful property

  • 5 of 5

This is a lovely property and we really enjoyed our stay. I loved the flowers, birds, chickens and ducks. Everything was spotless and so nice. We have stayed in enough VRBOs to know this isn't always the case. Our only complaint was the road noise from Highway 3. We live in a rural area that is very quiet so the first night it was hard to sleep. I guess towards the end of our stay, we got kind of used to it. I wonder if a ceiling fan to provide some white noise might be helpful - especially since it is not possible to open the bedroom window at night (because of the road noise). The location is great if you are planning to go to Acadia National Park or to Bar Harbor.

this is our first time staying here and are very happy with our accommodations. The bed is very comfortable , the place is quite, the surroundings are very pretty with kevin and Donna always outdoors fixing things up . It's quite nice to see Kevin with his chicken and ducks. Kevin also takes much pride in his flowers.

Wonderful Home Base

  • 5 of 5

The Hummingbird Suite was perfectly located to explore all areas of the island. It is extremely close to Bar Harbor and Acadia National Park and within a short, beautiful drive to other island destinations.

Donna was easy and wonderful to work with. The place was spotless, comfortable, relaxing and had a serene setting out the back window. It was great to crack the windows and hear the frogs at night and chickens during the day. The gas fireplace kept me warm on colder nights. Overall, this suite was perfect and had everything I needed (from a comfortable bed to a fully stocked kitchen and a comfortable place to relax after exploring).

Fantastic

  • 5 of 5

Exceeded all expectations, even after reading the positive reviews. The cleanliness, quality of the amenities, and well equipped space (no need to wonder if something you need is there...it is!) Comfortable and conveniently located, we will absolutely stay again.

Thank you, Kevin and Donna!

Piece of Heaven

  • 5 of 5

Quaint suite. Love this suite. This place had everything you need plus more. The sky lights made the living room very bright. Sun tubes in bathroom made the bathroom bright without using lights. King size bed was so comfortable. We enjoyed our lunch on the deck with a view of Cadillac mountain. As a special treat chocolates by my bedside, Yum! Owners were nice and very helpful.
