Recent Bar Harbor reviews

  • Everything we hoped for and more!

    "My family had never visited Maine before but it was definitely on our bucket list. This year we decided to finally go. We are glad we did. Our first order of business was to find a place to stay and we chose this property. It was everything we had hoped for and everything the owners had adverstised. The home was spacious enough for our family of 7 adults and we actually could have comfortably had more people there due to the open floor plan. The home was super clean, well stocked with all the amenities needed. We loved the fact that it was far enough from downtown to enjoy the peace and quiet of the wooded lot, yet close enough to be in downtown Bar Harbor within 10 minutes. The owners were very responsive and extremely helpful in making our vacation a memorable one. I would highly recommend this property and would definitely return."

  • A Gorgeous Property and Fantastic Experience!

    "The Down East Cottage is an absolutely lovely home and exceeded our expectations in every way for our family vacation in Maine...the setting is more breathtaking than the photos capture! The cottage is pristine and is the perfect location to access MDI/Acadia and we also had a fantastic experience right around the corner at Lamoine beach finding starfish, quahog and razor clams, eels, and more...our kids had a blast! We enjoyed making s'mores and sitting by the fire pit, playing family games, listening to records, and watching movies after long, action-packed excursions in Acadia, Bar Harbor and beyond. Other favorites included discovering the Bar Harbor Farmer's Market on Sunday morning, popovers and hiking at Jordan Pond, Bass Harbor Lighthouse/Trail, Thurston's Lobster Pound (wow!), shopping in Southwest Harbor, and Echo Lake/Cadillac Mountain adventures. We created countless memories at this lovely home in Maine. Shirley and George are extremely responsive owners, easy to communicate with, and extremely thoughtful as they even had a welcome gift to greet us when we arrived. I would highly recommend this property for anyone wanting to experience everything Bar Harbor/Acadia has to offer, while simultaneously enjoying the privacy and solace of a secluded, beautiful waterfront property."

  • Perfect spot of Fall in Acadia

    "Rugosa is a beautiful and peaceful cottage minutes from Acadia and a perfect place to welcome Fall each year. Rugosa is a perfect, yet simple, home-away-from-home for a week and I always look forward to walking through the front door at the start of our week. From early mornings down by the water, exploring what the tides brought the night before, to tucking in by the fire on a chilly early Fall evening, the space is warm and inviting. We've been bringing our kids since one was a year and a half and the other a baby. For years when afternoon naps are essential, the cottage location is perfect to spend a morning in the park and be back in time for a nap in the afternoon. Otherwise, it is so nice to only have a short drive back after a day of putzing around Bar Harbor or hiking and biking Acadia. My family enjoys meals overlooking the water and watching the sunset while cooking is a special treat. This cottage is a perfect spot to be with each other and soak in the natural beauty of a place as special as Mt. Desert Island--it makes for a truly memorable week and one that I look forward to each year."

  • Superb Bar Harbor rental

    "This is a superb holiday home. Dee Dee is the most charming and welcoming of owners, and the property itself is maintained to the highest possible standards. Dee Dee's attention to detail is fantastic. She goes the extra mile to ensure that your stay will be perfect. The house is within a 5 minute walk of all of the town's facilities - very convenient. The town of Bar Harbor is a must see for New England visitors. The town itself is absolutely charming - and has a "real" feel to it. The Acadia National Park next to Bar Harbor is one of America's real national treasures and should not be missed on any account. It is magnificent and stunningly beautiful. If you stay here you will, like us, have a fantastic and wholly memorable vacation. Do not miss it . Dee Dee's "Home from Home" is the perfect base for your stay. We loved it and have no hesitation in recommending it wholeheartedly to others."
