Beautiful! We didn't want to leave!
"I stayed at The River House a couple of weeks ago with my mom, sister, and six-year-old niece. We couldn’t have picked a nicer place for our vacation. The house is in town but tucked away off of a private road. While we were there, we felt as if we were in some faraway, secluded retreat; but the convenience of shopping, restaurants, tourist attractions etc. was only minutes away. The house itself is gorgeous; it is evident that a lot of love and care has gone into maintaining this home. And it is stocked with all of the essentials that you might need, plus some extras. We arrived to find fresh flowers and a basket with maple syrup and pancake mix on the island in the kitchen. Joe and Sue also supplied us with enough coffee to get us through the entire week. Also, the views from the house are amazing and the grounds made me just want to sit and relax and take in all of the beautiful scenery. One of my favorite parts of the whole trip was getting up early in the morning and having my coffee on a little bench that is tucked away at the end of one of the trails, overlooking the river. All in all, The River House was the highlight of our trip; and our only regret was that we did not spend more time there!"

"My family and I enjoyed a wonderful week at Bass Terre, the property is immaculate the house was exactly as it is represented in the photos. The kids enjoyed the spacious grounds, they had breakfast in the bunkhouse and had a great time exploring the shoreline. The location is great, a short ride to all the attractions of MDI but quiet and secluded when you arrive home. The house is just great, cozy with wonderful views from every window, we would love to return in the future. A wonderful peaceful week. Charles and Dede we helpful answering all questions and we would like to thank you for letting us use your terrific home !"

Perfect Place to Stay in Bar Harbor... especially if you have a little one!
"I'm still here and was just very eager to write a stellar review. We couldn't be happier staying here!
We had never been to Bar Harbor before, so we were "blindly" looking for accommodations. When booking at first, I was concerned that the apartment is a few miles out of town, but I AM SO GLAD WE ARE NOT IN THE MIDDLE OF TOWN! The apartment is quiet with ocean breezes and lots of sun-- none of which I think you would get amidst the business of town. Town is only a quick 5 minute drive and there is plenty of parking. Very convenient.
The apartment is also a stone's throw from the Acadia entrance, which turned to be perfect when traveling with our 2-year old. We can enjoy part of the park in the morning, conveniently head home for nap time, then head back. If you plan to visit the park (and it will take you DAYS to enjoy all parts), this is the perfect location. There is also Hull's Cove, a little beach, and restaurant about a block away.
As far as the apartment-- it is absolutely lovely! It is so clean and well-maintained that I feel like we are the first family to stay in it. Very comfortable. Every detail is gorgeous and meticulous (including fresh flowers upon arrival! And sand toys and coolers for trips to the beach!) Monique and Joe are kind and attentive. They even have a lovely outdoor patio for tenants with a fireplace stocked with wood and gas and charcoal grills. Perfect place for wine in the evening after putting the little one to bed! We are also very appreciative that they have a Pack and Play. That means we all get a good night's sleep!
We highly highly recommend staying here!"
