Recent Bar Harbor reviews
"Well appointed home with lots of amenities. Wish I'd brought my binoculars as that was the only thing, besides a boat which I could have rented nearby, that wasn't available in the house. The dock, the sound, the habitat, the view, the porches, the woodstove, kayaks, etc. all well designed for my family's week on MDI next to Acadia. Should have done 2 weeks!"

"Our second trip here in 3 years. I so wish we could come every year. This cottage is THE best. It was like coming home again. My family which includes daughters aged 20 and 9 love it here. There was so much anticipation before we got here. It is magical driving down the driveway and seeing the bay in front of you. The view is breath taking. We weren't even completely unpacked for the week when they were down on the beach clamming. Close enough to Acadia and Bar Harbor that we never minded the drive in (maybe 30 minutes). My husband and oldest went deep sea fishing for a half a day. Poked around Bar Harbor several times. Bar Island, shops, restaurants and in Acadia to Sand Beach and up early one morning to see the sunrise on top of Cadillac. Other than when we went to Acadia we generally planned to spend half of the day exploring and the other at the cottage enjoying the property itself and just regrouping as a family playing board games, trying new recipes (cottage is stocked well with spices and pans and such) and relaxing. Laying in bed one morning and listening to a pair of loons calling to each other over the quiet bay was thrilling as well as seeing a deer with her 4 babies in the morning mist visiting us. Exploring Lamoine State Park just a few minutes away is always a request with fishing, beach exploring and a picnic lunch.
The property owners have made us feel more than welcome and we truly cannot wait to get back. My only regret is that we could not stay longer. You could easily spend two weeks here and fill it up with things to do or just be happy at the cottage and do nothing. We cannot wait to get back again."

"We stayed for a week with our two boys in their late teens. The free wi-fi gave the boys something to do while my husband and I read books on the newly built screened-in porch. The property was quietly secluded away from the hustle and bustle of downtown Bar Harbor. It was impeccably clean and had just the right amount of space. The four mountain bikes allowed us to tour the carriage roads without having to drag our own bikes with us and my husband and son enjoyed taking the canoe out on the calm inlet off Town Landing Road. We highly recommend the property for those seeking a quiet retreat."

"The house was wonderful! Very well stocked with cooking/sleeping/bathing supplies, and the setting is amazing-- the pictures really don't begin to do the property justice. The location was also a huge plus; though it's not right in the park, the accessibility to Acadia and the Bar Harbor restaurants, etc., was very convenient. Anything you might need in the way of groceries is just a ten minute drive into Ellsworth, and there is a fantastic spot to buy fresh caught lobster right up the road. The property owner was incredibly easy to work with, and very accommodating to us as first-time VRBO renters. We will absolutely be coming back next summer! Thank you :-)"
