Recent Bar Harbor reviews
Just Right for Us
"The chalet turned out to be a perfect place for my husband and me and our two dogs.
Bar Harbor is jam-packed with tourists in August and we enjoyed taking a 10-min. drive to town when we wanted and then having a quiet retreat to come home to. Acadia was just as convenient. We spent much time relaxing on the deck, watching the dogs run around the large yard, and taking walks along the quiet, pebbly beach (that was pretty much our own) and over to Hadley Point.
Inside, there was everything we needed and when we couldn’t figure out how to tap into the wireless, Joe called us right back.
The cottage is nicer inside than the pictures show. The wood is classy and rustic and the cabinets look new. The loft is adorable and spacious although we had no need to use it. The house would be fine for a family of four as long as - with the open layout - you wanted to know everything your kids were doing at all times.
Our only pet peeve had nothing to do with this house. We remain mystified why the residents next door keep a large blue commercial van at the bottom of their driveway, blocking their water view and leaving us to ponder every day if it’s possible to get tired of such a lovely spot."

"We traveled there with my 1.5yr old son and had a great time. We spent most days exploring different parts of Acadia National Park and the location was perfect for this. It was also nice to be in a quiet and tucked away area from the busy Bar Harbor (lots of cruise ships!). We enjoyed the beautiful sunsets over the bay and lobster boil at the rental. The kitchen is small but well stocked with anything you could need. We did have a couple minor issues with the cottage after arrival, but the owner was super responsive and gracious. We highly recommend this cottage!"

"We came to Maine to raise a barn. This cottage was perfect for us. It was clean, cozy, and friendly. We had everything that we could possibly need. I did some cooking for our crew, and had everything that I needed. The owners were very responsive, helpful, and generous. The location was just a few miles from where we were working, and close to everything else that we needed. We had a very pleasant stay.
The only reason to hesitate in giving a great review, is that others will love the place as much as we did: Then it would not be available the next time we want to stay. The pictures do not depict the true feel of this lovely home.
Thank you Audrey and Ken from us, and all of our team of timberframers.

"Eleven of us stayed in the house for a week - 6 adults and 5 kids. The accommodations were perfect for us. The kids LOVED the downstairs area with 2 bedrooms, bathroom, foosball, pool table and TV with DVD. It was like their own little hideaway. The other bedrooms were perfect for the adults. There was ample eating room between the kitchen and the table on the deck. We all enjoyed sitting around the fire pit each evening. The location was convenient to all of the places we went - so nice to be right in Acadia! Ken was very responsive and helpful with the whole rental process. We highly recommend this house."
