Recent Bar Harbor reviews
Perfectly located, gorgeous home!
"My family and I just returned from our first vacation to MDI. We are a family of four - two children (ages 11 and 8). Our dog came too. We were lucky enough to find this home, and we were thrilled with our week here. This home is perfectly situated on MDI - only a mile from the entrance to Acadia, and about four miles from the town of Bar Harbor. It was also close to the main roads that traversed the island. This home is gorgeous and very comfortable! The views of the ocean from the deck were simply outstanding, and I loved the trail that went right down to the rocky coastline. The home is very well furnished and maintained - the beds were very comfortable, and we loved our time grilling on the deck with the ocean in view. The owner is also very nice and accessible - she was a joy to work with! We also loved the accessibility to the activities on MDI. We went hiking, biking, kayaking, and even watched a sunset on Cadillac Mountain. I highly recommend this property! Enjoy!"

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!"

"We loved this well-maintained house. It was perfect for 2 families made up of 4 parents and six "kids" aged 25, 23, 21, 21, 18, and 15! The dining room table was long enough to fit all 10 of us for meals and the kitchen was large enough to handle multiple cooks. The house was well stocked with any dishes or pans we needed and had every spice we wanted. The linens were great and the linen room had more towels than we could ever need. The street was quiet while being just a few blocks from the town shops and restaurants. Parking was very limited (about 1.5 cars could fit) but we had no trouble finding parking in the same block. We want to come back!!!"

"Acadia Getaway was perfect for our family of 5 -- cozy, comfortable, convenient, and clean! Owners made the reservation so simple and everything was as it was described. This was our first time visiting the area, and the location of this home made access to all of the activities at Acadia, in Bar Harbor, and in neighboring towns simple. Plus, our kids enjoyed coming home to a backyard of woods to explore! Thanks for a great stay!"
