Recent Bar Harbor reviews

  • Great place with amazing location!

    "We stayed here with our two young children for a week while exploring Acadia and Bar Harbor for the first time. The cottage is beautifully decorated, clean, and very comfortable -- perfect for either a family or a couple looking for a get-away. The small garden and balcony are also very charming, and the neighbors are friendly (as are the owners). But most importantly, the location cannot be beat. Even with young children, we walked into town several times a day. Wonderful restaurants are close by (as are the farmer's market, playgrounds, etc.). The location is also a great base for exploring Acadia. We definitely plan to stay here again!"

  • Perfect home for our family...wonderful vacation!

    "This home was just perfect for our family of 8. We had plenty of room to spread out and the property was very private. The home was well appointed with all of the things you need to enjoy a vacation: Guides, maps, hiking/biking books, beach toys, basement for our bikes. We cooked 1-2 meals almost every day and the home had everything we need. The best part was how close it was to everything. You are just a few miles from the entrance to the park (Cad Mt gate) and Bar Harbor. We were able to hike/bike/explore all over the island with ease and even come back in between activities to drop people off. All and all a wonderful vacation in a wonderful home. We can't wait to be back! Thank you!!"

  • Perfect home base for Acadia vacation

    "My husband and I stayed at Acadia Meadow for a week in August 2014 and loved every minute of it. It was a perfect location - away from the hustle of Bar Harbor and close enough to the other towns on the island for quieter dinners. It's also very convenient to an entrance to the park and the Loop Road. The owners were terrific and brought us a basket of fresh veggies and herbs from their garden. The apartment itself is beautiful, very well maintained and has all the comforts of home - and then some (the hammock was a popular post-hike nap spot!). We thoroughly appreciated the small touches included - we used the small cooler every day to pack lunches and made good use of the hiking guidebook they provided. We had all the dishes we needed for meals at "home" (including lobster shell crackers), made use of the grill one night, and watched the stars from the backyard. We would love to be return visitors to both Mt. Desert Island and Acadia Meadow."

  • A wonderful retreat

    "My husband and I spent a lovely week in the Chalet and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The owners provided everything we needed, including lobster pots and lots of dishes, cups and serving ware. Towels and blankets were plentiful. We especially enjoyed our early morning coffee on the deck watching the tide come in and the neighborhood clam diggers. The house was spacious, clean and well organized. I highly recommend this if you want a quiet, somewhat secluded place where relaxing is your top priority."

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.
