  • Perfect little cottage

    "My family and I throughly enjoyed our stay in this charming cottage. The location is perfect -- a short walk from all that Bar harbor and Acadia have to offer but away from the crowds and noise. We stayed for 3 weeks so we definitely used the kitchen and it was very well equipped and comfortable for cooking and eating. The cottage was very clean and the owners were delightful to deal with and very helpful with suggestions for our stay. The garden was just lovely and the neighbors were friendly and helpful as well. We would definitely stay there again."

  • 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."

  • Spacious multi-family rental

    "In general we really liked this cottage. It was quite spacious and open. The bathrooms were nice as well as the kitchen. TV/dvd player and wifi made it great for those of us who are tech savvy :) The loft bedroom was nice, but we had young children (2yo and 7mo) which was difficult as their bedtime was earlier and then it was loud upstairs so we all had to be very quiet. If it was enclosed then bedtimes would have been a lot easier! This loft bedroom would be fine for adults or older children and would unlikely be disruptive for them. The location is great and very close to everything. Their own beach is nice with lovely sunsets. Got many great photos. We drove all around the island from here for the whole week and did a lot of hiking. The pool is absolutely fantastic."

  • Great House,great location

    "Just came back from a family vacation and stayed at this wonderful log cabin. There were 10 of us, and we could not have been more comfortable (the beds especially were very comfy). The kitchen is well stocked with cooking implements, there is lots of space for family hang-outs but also privacy when needed and the location could not be better. Not right in town -who wants the traffic- but only a few minutes from center of Bar Harbor and to Acadia Park entrance. The owner was very responsive and pleasant to deal with. Highly recommended."

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.
