Recent Bar Harbor reviews
Convenient, charming and well equipped base in a beautiful location
"The property was well equipped (from toys for children to games to laundry detergent!) with plenty of space for our party of 7 (2 children, 5 adults). The location is fantastic: right in the heart of Bar Harbor but on a quiet street a 2 minute walk from the supermarket. Acadia National Park is a quick drive/cycle away. We loved sitting out on the porch and in the rear decked area. The owner gave some excellent recommendations of things to do in the area so do ask!"

"We stayed here with 2 teens and a tween and we all just LOVED the house and the property. The owners don't just view this as an investment property, they clearly stay at and love this house. It is well maintained, beautifully appointed, and stocked with more than you have the right to expect any rental property to be stocked with--musical instruments, linens, restaurant, menus, basic pantry items, laundry detergent, games, movies, books, umbrellas, fans, etc., etc. It was an easy drive to the park loop road, the carriage roads and downtown Bar Harbor, but far enough away from the hustle and bustle to be able to appreciate the beautiful night sky, find owls, and light a bonfire to enjoy the peacefulness of the woods. I had to email the owner about something and she was kind, thoughtful and helpful. We don't usually repeat vacations, but we just may return to this beautiful location!"

"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!"

"I have fallen in love with our National Parks and enlisted three long-time friends to tackle Acadia with me. We hunted high and low for the perfect lodging on MDI and surely found it at Summerside Cottage. Location is so ideal for all activities--we walked to all our meals (except for Thurston's which is the best lobstah experience on MDI), walked to kayaking and biking rentals and to the Village Green to catch the Island Explorer and all of the park entrances are a short drive away. The cottage is sparkling clean and wonderfully appointed for four or more. Bedding and towels are plentiful and great quality and the kitchen has everything a group will need. We all commented on how comfy all the beds are. We met the neighbors one night while sitting on the back deck having a glass of wine before walking to dinner and felt a part of the neighborhood. Logan and Hong gave us many ideas for restaurants and activities and were immediately responsive to any questions we had. We all would recommend this cottage for a variety of groups and I would love to return one day to Acadia, Bar Harbor and Summerside Cottage!"
