About Jeffrey or Lesley Starling

We first visited Mount Dessert Island in 1981 with our children loved the Park and the town. We came back in 1998 and we still had the same love for the Town and especially the Park we ended up buying a home. Our son was married at Thunder Hole and lives on the Island with his wife and daughter.

We enjoy the trails, hikes, lakes and ocean, even climbed the Precipice, but came back down the easy way. never came down the way we went up.

We hope you enjoy the house and its location, because you can walk to almost every restaurant, stores, bars in town without the need to drive as you will discover parking is at a premium.

We hope you enjoy the town and park as much as our family has and still does. 'Enjoy the most Beautiful Island in America'

Jeffrey or Lesley Starling purchased this house in 1997

Why Jeffrey or Lesley Starling chose Bar Harbor and Mount Desert Island

If you put a pin into the center of Bar Harbor you would end up at Eden Villa, within walking distance of everything the town has to offer. Just come have a good time no driving. A very safe garden for little people and pets, sit back relax and enjoy the town at it's best.

Almost Perfect

  • 4 of 5

Very comfortable home in very convenient Bar Harbor location. Our week went by in a flash. Parked our car and only used it a couple of times, although we were active every day! Walked to restaurants, walked to activities, walked to sight seeing.................walk, walk, walk................then eat, eat, eat. Lobster, lobster bisque, lobster rolls, lobster omelets...........what more could you ask for! Plenty of space in this home for family/friends gatherings! And the back deck with a fenced in back yard was perfect for grilling out and for our two pet dogs! We had no problems while we were there so we had no need to contact the owner after our initial "pick out a home on the internet period". Our advice, pick this one and you can't go wrong!

Comfortable large bar harbor house

  • 5 of 5

A nice older but well kept bar harbor home that met all our needs and was even nicer than we expected. We had plenty of space for our extended family of 6 adults and 2 kids with room to spare. The house pretty much has everything you would want. As noted, it is worth knowing that there is no bathroom on the 1st floor, both of the baths are the 2nd floor. The 3rd floor has 2 large rooms each with a queen or king bed plus another single or double cot or futon while the 2nd floor has one master suite plus 2 rooms with 2 single beds.Nice deck in back. The location is great - 1 minute walk to the supermarket and 5 mins to Main Street, restaurants, etc and the village green where you can catch the island explorer bus to the park (free) and avoid the hassle of driving into Acadia. Owner was very responsive to inquiries before we booked and easily available if needed during the stay (we had no need to contact him). Certainly would recommend to others.

Location was great

  • 4 of 5

Pros: Location (downtown), back porch/patio, large dining room table.

Cons: No A/C, older home that could use an upgrade/remodel.

House is located downtown with easy walk to anything in town. Grocery store is less then a block away, everything in town is quicker to walk to then to drive. You hardly notice that you are downtown since the location is on a quiet back street. Barbecue grill outside works well. Bar Harbor is a little pricey for 9 to eat out in the evening so we cooked many of our meals, the full kitchen has everything you will need, ie. pots, pans, coffee maker, microwave, dishwasher etc. etc. House was clean. We stayed in July and needed fans in the windows to cool down the house, the upstairs got warm in the afternoons but was cooler at night, the fans helped push cooler air inside. This is an older home and has some wear, however everything is adequate. I give it 4 out of 5 stars since I always set the bar high. I would stay there again.

Eden Villa in Bar Harbor

  • 4 of 5

The home was very comfortable, spacious, and clean. The only negative was that there is no toilet facility on man floor. But I would reserve again and recommend to anyone looking for a nice home in Bar Harbor that is centrally located in town.
