Recent Bar Harbor reviews
Perfect Place to Stay in Bar Harbor... especially if you have a little one!
"I'm still here and was just very eager to write a stellar review. We couldn't be happier staying here!
We had never been to Bar Harbor before, so we were "blindly" looking for accommodations. When booking at first, I was concerned that the apartment is a few miles out of town, but I AM SO GLAD WE ARE NOT IN THE MIDDLE OF TOWN! The apartment is quiet with ocean breezes and lots of sun-- none of which I think you would get amidst the business of town. Town is only a quick 5 minute drive and there is plenty of parking. Very convenient.
The apartment is also a stone's throw from the Acadia entrance, which turned to be perfect when traveling with our 2-year old. We can enjoy part of the park in the morning, conveniently head home for nap time, then head back. If you plan to visit the park (and it will take you DAYS to enjoy all parts), this is the perfect location. There is also Hull's Cove, a little beach, and restaurant about a block away.
As far as the apartment-- it is absolutely lovely! It is so clean and well-maintained that I feel like we are the first family to stay in it. Very comfortable. Every detail is gorgeous and meticulous (including fresh flowers upon arrival! And sand toys and coolers for trips to the beach!) Monique and Joe are kind and attentive. They even have a lovely outdoor patio for tenants with a fireplace stocked with wood and gas and charcoal grills. Perfect place for wine in the evening after putting the little one to bed! We are also very appreciative that they have a Pack and Play. That means we all get a good night's sleep!
We highly highly recommend staying here!"

"If you want a place where you can get directly into the mountains, this is it! From this house we hiked up the South Ridge of Cadillac Mountain, to the North Ridge - all the way on trails into Bar Harbor. We also did a nice hike that started at Sand Beach, up the Bee hive, over Gorham Mountain, to the Otter Cliffs and through a surprise shortcut path right back to our house. You can't beat this location. Not only can you get out quickly for short or long hikes, you can also hop on or off the Island Explorer Bus that stops right outside the house.
The house itself was great, too. We stayed with my parents, adult brother and our young son. Everyone had their own spacious bedroom (the photos don't quite convey how large the rooms are). The kitchen was well stocked (though the pots could use some updating and deep cleaning) and the appliances all were in good working condition. The house had lots of travel guides, maps and tourist information - so we didn't need to look anything up. The living room couches were a bit tired and saggy, but there were other adequate seating options, too. The beds were comfy and we even got a change of sheets (which was nice because we needed the flannel early in the week and the cotton sheets when it got a little warmer).
I don't view this to be negative, but some may - there was no cell phone reception. However, they have a phone there for local calls and emergencies. Honestly, I loved not being able to stay connected while I was on vacation, so it didn't bother me. The internet wi-fi was fast and reliable, so if you must...you can.
It was great to have a rental with nice towels, linens, toilet paper and basic soap supplies too. I thought the towel allotment was more than adequate, especially with the washer and dryer available.
Thanks - if we're going to Acadia next year, we'll definitely book again!"

"Recently, I had the pleasure of staying at this lovely cottage. It was very well appointed with everything needed for a week's stay. There were plenty of well thought out personal touches to make the space feel like a home away from home and the location was an easy walk to town. The neighbors were friendly and a great source of information for bike trips and runs and the park entrance was just a few miles away. We had a fantastic time and can't wait to return next year!"

"My family stayed at Windiana III for 7 nights in July. It was an amazing vacation. The home is perfectly located with great views of Long Pond. The location is ideal, very private and peaceful but close to all of the great activities that Acadia offers. Our kids loved fishing off the dock, canoeing and kayaking and swimming in the clear, clean warm water of Long Pond."
