Perfect for a family with small kids
"This apartment was absolutely perfect for our needs! We have a toddler and an infant, so the highchair, pack and play, and toys were wonderful. And the location couldn't be better, right downtown with everything within easy walking distance. The owners were very friendly, but also respected our need for privacy. The only challenge was parking, but having a handicap tag (for grandpa who traveled with us) made it much easier. I would certainly want to stay there again!"

"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."

"Our 7-person stay at Folkestone Cottage was everything we could have hoped for. Folkestone is a very private house located quite close to Bar Harbor and Acadia National Park. The warm, modern, open house itself has a spacious downstairs and comfortable bedrooms upstairs. The kitchen was great for all kinds of group cooking. Plenty of room. Multiple cars? A two-car garage. The master bedroom downstairs was a delightful place to sleep. Being away from major roads made this a quiet retreat from daytime activity during tourist season. The wifi handled all our seven devices throughout the day as our reunion group shared photos and videos and missives back home. Just sitting on the deck and enjoying chat accompanied by the wind in the trees made us all feel at home. Folkestone Cottage was perfect for our needs. Thank you to the hosts who were also very accommodating after our visit in helping us reclaim property left behind."

"We are a family of 4 (kids of 7 and 10) and our dog Isla. Choosing the right accommodation for our first trip to Bar Harbor was extremely important since we wanted a mix of true Acadia National Park experiences with the convenience to living downtown Bar Harbor; this rental was exactly what we hoped it would be. We had easy access to what we wanted to do and see but were also only a short walk away from the bars, restaurants, sights and shopping of downtown Bar Harbor.
The owners were very responsive to our questions and provided all the amenities we needed. As all the other reviews state, this was a simple, clean and functional apartment.
We were loathed to leave Bar Harbor and will certainly come back to this apartment and recommend it to our friends. Thank you from all our family."
