Recent Bar Harbor reviews
Quiet, clean, and beautiful
"We stayed for a week with our two boys in their late teens. The free wi-fi gave the boys something to do while my husband and I read books on the newly built screened-in porch. The property was quietly secluded away from the hustle and bustle of downtown Bar Harbor. It was impeccably clean and had just the right amount of space. The four mountain bikes allowed us to tour the carriage roads without having to drag our own bikes with us and my husband and son enjoyed taking the canoe out on the calm inlet off Town Landing Road. We highly recommend the property for those seeking a quiet retreat."

"The house was wonderful! Very well stocked with cooking/sleeping/bathing supplies, and the setting is amazing-- the pictures really don't begin to do the property justice. The location was also a huge plus; though it's not right in the park, the accessibility to Acadia and the Bar Harbor restaurants, etc., was very convenient. Anything you might need in the way of groceries is just a ten minute drive into Ellsworth, and there is a fantastic spot to buy fresh caught lobster right up the road. The property owner was incredibly easy to work with, and very accommodating to us as first-time VRBO renters. We will absolutely be coming back next summer! Thank you :-)"

"Our family recently rented the Hetzer House and we could not have been happier. The house was everything we hoped for and the layout was perfect (one note is that one bedroom is accessible through another – wasn’t a problem for us). In addition the cleaning crew did an amazing job and the house was spotless. Although we didn't have the best weather the area was beautiful and during the rainy times we had plenty to do in the house (Internet, board games, books, DVD/VHS movies)! Our kids (age 1 and 3) loved the baskets of toys and kid books - such an unexpected surprise! Tracy was awesome to work with and was very responsive. We would definitely rent this house again when we return to Acadia. Thank you for sharing your home with us!"

"We had an AMAZING week here.
Our large and multi-generational family of seven stayed at this house in July. We had a fantastic visit and we plan to come back next year. We hiked several mountains, ate in nearby restaurants, swam in a nearby pond, and walked to the water and rocks from the house.
Everyday had a new and fun activity.
The spaciousness of the 3-level house was perfect for the three generations of our family. People could work, rest, or watch TV downstairs and not hear any noise from the activities of the other family members. The several large bedrooms also let us spread out and have privacy when needed.
The entire house is beautiful, with light wood and while walls. The property is expansive, with a garden, yard, and path to the water. My 3 year old picked blueberries from the many bushes planted there. Paths through the Blagden Preserve provided an easy walk to the water, and our child loved looking for shellfish at the beach during low tide. Next time we will bring binoculars so that we can see the seals on the rocks at the Preserve.
We enjoyed hiking, playing golf at the nearby public courses, and watching the boats come into the harbor. We didn't have time to kayak or ride bikes, but hope to on our next visit. The roads around the house have few cars, and would be ideal for biking, and the Acadia Carriage roads are also nearby. We want to take the kayak out next time, as you can launch it just down the street from the house.
We HIGHLY recommend this house. The house itself and its surroundings are wonderful. There are many great dining opportunities on the island, in nearby town hill, bar harbor, and southwest. But every night, we rushed home to watch an amazing sunset over the water."
