Best vacation spot
"What a find. My wife and I took our adult daughters and husband and boyfriend to Bar Harbor. The views from our home away from home was spectacular. The home is spacious and tastefully decorated. We really enjoyed the wrap-around deck. We use the grill several nights and the gas outdoor fire pit was awesome. The owner, Bonnie, was a gem. We had a slight problem the first night and she had it fixed immediately. My car broke down and she set me up with her mechanic who was terrific.
Our youngest and boyfriend hiked over 30 miles of Acadia National Park. The bus system is super. The Light House Boat tour is worth the money and time.
Our favorite things
Gaylin's restaurant for nice lobster dinners
Side Street Cafe for great lobster rolls and lobster stew
Beerworks for duh! Beers by Maine craft breweries
Maine-ly Meats. Great BBQ
And CJ's for the best blueberry pie ala mode or blueberry soft serve (we did this about every night)
In short don't pass up this destination and lovely home"

"We have stayed at this apartment twice now with our daughter (6 mos first visit and 2.5 yrs second visit) and really liked it. The apartment is neat, nicely furnished, and has all that a small family needs. The owners are very nice and the communication has been good with both trips. It is wonderful to spend the day at Acadia and come back to the convenience of Bar Harbor. If you have a small child I would recommend bringing a child gate (we did), as the stairway up to the apartment is open and quite steep. We will definitely be back in the years to come."

"We have stayed here several times and it has become our favorite vacation place. It's so easy to do so many different things from the house - hiking/biking the carriage roads, kayaking, road biking, hitting the beach, a day in town, etc. You can walk or bike right into the park! House is clean, comfortable, has everything we need. Nice hang on the back patio.Hosts are very helpful and easy to communicate with, super nice folks. And all at a bargain price!"

"The Wayfaring Mermaid Suite is simply gorgeous...it is one of the few places I have visited where the actual property is even better than the photos. My mom and I were able to enjoy this beautiful apartment in the most perfect location, along with my 2 year-old daughter. It is clean, well- stocked, comfortable, well appointed...I was able to set up a pack and play in the bedroom, and my mom used the sofa sleeper in the main room. She said it was very comfortable, and she loved the breeze from the open windows! The bedroom bed was just as wonderful as my own bed! Monique and Joe are both so kind, and the attention to detail when building this unit is very impressive! Joe is a highly skilled craftsman, and he handcrafted the entire apartment...gorgeous (I know I am using this word a great deal...but, it's the best word to describe this place). The courtyard, which we didn't get to spend nearly enough time enjoying, was adorable...
We were able to walk to the Chart House Restaurant, which is just steps from the apartment; we also took advantage of the ice cream shop at the end of the street, as well! The rocky beach (also steps from the apartment), was the perfect spot for photos!
It was a quick two minute drive to the Acadia National Park and just minutes to downtown Bar Harbor.
You must visit Cadillac Mountain! I lived in Hawaii for two years (which has always been my favorite place on earth), and I really think Bar Harbor and the park might have moved past the islands:) We took a little drive to Bass Harbor, which was also gorgeous (beautiful sunset by the lighthouse).
If you're looking for the perfect place to in the most perfect location...this is exactly where you need to stay! I hope to be able to return and enjoy this property with my husband!"
