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!"

"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!"

"We came to Maine to raise a barn. This cottage was perfect for us. It was clean, cozy, and friendly. We had everything that we could possibly need. I did some cooking for our crew, and had everything that I needed. The owners were very responsive, helpful, and generous. The location was just a few miles from where we were working, and close to everything else that we needed. We had a very pleasant stay.
The only reason to hesitate in giving a great review, is that others will love the place as much as we did: Then it would not be available the next time we want to stay. The pictures do not depict the true feel of this lovely home.
Thank you Audrey and Ken from us, and all of our team of timberframers.

"We are a family of 4 (kids of 7 and 10) and our dog Isla. Choosing the right accommodation for our first trip to Bar Harbor was extremely important since we wanted a mix of true Acadia National Park experiences with the convenience to living downtown Bar Harbor; this rental was exactly what we hoped it would be. We had easy access to what we wanted to do and see but were also only a short walk away from the bars, restaurants, sights and shopping of downtown Bar Harbor.
The owners were very responsive to our questions and provided all the amenities we needed. As all the other reviews state, this was a simple, clean and functional apartment.
We were loathed to leave Bar Harbor and will certainly come back to this apartment and recommend it to our friends. Thank you from all our family."
