Recent Bar Harbor reviews

  • The Essence of Maine

    ""Treetops" is a great house, spacious and comfortable with the best equipped kitchen we've ever seen in a vacation rental. Tree top views of the bay and islands are spectacular from the living room,dining room, deck and bedrooms. A private trail to a secluded cove is a true Acadia experience. From the house deck we watched Eagles, Osprey and Deer to the accompaniment of Loons. Located on the less traveled side of Mount Desert Island, the house is still close to the Park, Southwest Harbor and the best home made pies at Town Hill Market. We hope to visit Treetops again."

  • Great Stay at Bar Harbor!

    "This was the perfect place for my girlfriend and I and our dog. The owner Kevin is very friendly, personable, and accommodating. Everything was very clean, and nicely updated. Very close to the village green where you can take the bus to Acadia National Park. There's also a nice path at the end of the street that leads right down to the water, perfect for a nice and quick walk with our dog. We hated to leave, would definitely rent here again!"

  • The Perfect Getaway

    "Can't say enough about how wonderful our stay on Spectacle Island was. Of course, Maine is beautiful, the hikes in Acadia were incredible, etc. etc... that goes without saying. But the hospitality that Jaime and AJ (and Ava!) provided was beyond compare. They clearly care deeply about the island and its guests, and constantly went out of their way to be sure that our stay was perfect in every way. We would stay at Spectacle Island again even if it were on a lake in the middle of Nebraska, just to enjoy the company of our wonderful hosts. The fact that SI is in the middle of one of the most incredible parks in the US just seems like icing on the cake."

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.
