  • Simply Perfect!

    "The Wayfaring Mermaid Suite is simply gorgeous...it is one of the few places I have visited where the actual property is even better than the photos. My mom and I were able to enjoy this beautiful apartment in the most perfect location, along with my 2 year-old daughter. It is clean, well- stocked, comfortable, well appointed...I was able to set up a pack and play in the bedroom, and my mom used the sofa sleeper in the main room. She said it was very comfortable, and she loved the breeze from the open windows! The bedroom bed was just as wonderful as my own bed! Monique and Joe are both so kind, and the attention to detail when building this unit is very impressive! Joe is a highly skilled craftsman, and he handcrafted the entire apartment...gorgeous (I know I am using this word a great deal...but, it's the best word to describe this place). The courtyard, which we didn't get to spend nearly enough time enjoying, was adorable... We were able to walk to the Chart House Restaurant, which is just steps from the apartment; we also took advantage of the ice cream shop at the end of the street, as well! The rocky beach (also steps from the apartment), was the perfect spot for photos! It was a quick two minute drive to the Acadia National Park and just minutes to downtown Bar Harbor. You must visit Cadillac Mountain! I lived in Hawaii for two years (which has always been my favorite place on earth), and I really think Bar Harbor and the park might have moved past the islands:) We took a little drive to Bass Harbor, which was also gorgeous (beautiful sunset by the lighthouse). If you're looking for the perfect place to in the most perfect location...this is exactly where you need to stay! I hope to be able to return and enjoy this property with my husband!"

  • Fall trip to Acadia

    "This was a prefect property for us. The location is terrific for accessing MDI and Bar Harbor as it is located right on route 3. The view out the back is very serene - saw deer on most mornings and evenings - and it is very quiet. The home has everything you need, was very clean and extremely well organized. It was actually so comfortable, we bought fresh fish in Bar Harbor most nights and ate at home. Not that we used it much but the cable TV is very convenient and the Wi-Fi worked great. Would highly recommend this to a couple who is looking for a very comfortable base to explore Acadia from."

  • Great Getaway Home

    "I stayed here with my wife and another couple during September of 2014. We loved how secluded the home was, the beautiful view off the back porch, and the open layout of the house. It was very clean and the large television in the living room was a wonderful addition as we were able to watch movies in the evening. We loved that each bedroom had its own bathroom as it made getting ready in the mornings much easier. We saw a fox walking around in the backyard on our first morning and enjoyed the wildlife that flourishes in the woods around the home. Just a couple of negatives: the internet wifi is over cellular, so we were really limited in how much we could download (we would have been charged extra for anything over 2 GB of data). I understand the limitations of high speed internet in seclusion, but we were disappointed because we had planned on streaming Netflix in the evenings. Not a huge deal, though. Finally, the downstairs doesn't appear to be heated. Perhaps I'm wrong about that, but we certainly couldn't find a way to heat it. This is problematic if you want to use the other queen bed in the house and the weather is chilly (as it was on our visit). We made due with the one queen and one double bed, but it would have been nice to be able to use the two queens. Overall we had a lovely experience and I would highly recommend this property with the two caveats listed above. It's a beautiful and relaxing place to stay."

    "A delightfully simple and comfortable cottage. This was our second stay. We felt like we had arrived "home" when we checked-in and at the end of every day of adventure on the Island. You can tell that this vacation home is well-loved by it's owners and we share that sentiment. The location is a short walk to the ocean and downtown. A little longer walk into Acadia or a short drive to the park. The cottage is located in a quiet neighborhood filled with delightful people."

Bar Harbor Travel Tips

Get Away to One of the Gems of New England: Bar Harbor Vacation Rentals

In travel guides and books about vacation spots in North America, Bar Harbor is regularly touted as one of the best places to visit and vacation. For this reason, there are many Bar Harbor vacation rentals for people who are interested in Bar Harbor travel.

Bar Harbor travel includes experiences along a rocky coast line and view of magnificent granite cliffs. Bar Harbor is located on the east side of Mount Desert Island. One of the best things about Mount Desert Island lodging and Bar Harbor vacation rentals is that they give vacationers access to Acadia National Park.

Bar Harbor Travel: Live Like Royalty Without Spending Like Royalty

One of the best things about Bar Harbor vacation rentals is how affordable many of them are. In fact. It is quite common for vacationers to get a better deal on Bar Harbor vacation rentals than on other sorts of Mount Desert Island lodging such as hotels.

Here are a few things to consider. When staying in a hotel, you are not able to cook your own meals. In order to have access to even a kitchenette, you'll have to pay extra. And even kitchenettes are not usually sufficient to cook full meals. In Mount Desert Island lodging options such as vacation rentals, fully equipped kitchens are standard. This means that renters don't have to spend an arm and a leg paying for every meal in restaurants.

Also, laundry service in hotels is usually incredibly expensive. For those who plan to hike, bike, boat, and swim, laundry might be necessary. Doing a load of laundry in a vacation rental is as easy as 1-2-3 and won't cost you a thing as the laundry facilities are a standard part of most vacation rentals.
