Recent Bar Harbor reviews

  • Best vacation spot

    "What a find. My wife and I took our adult daughters and husband and boyfriend to Bar Harbor. The views from our home away from home was spectacular. The home is spacious and tastefully decorated. We really enjoyed the wrap-around deck. We use the grill several nights and the gas outdoor fire pit was awesome. The owner, Bonnie, was a gem. We had a slight problem the first night and she had it fixed immediately. My car broke down and she set me up with her mechanic who was terrific. Our youngest and boyfriend hiked over 30 miles of Acadia National Park. The bus system is super. The Light House Boat tour is worth the money and time. Our favorite things Gaylin's restaurant for nice lobster dinners Side Street Cafe for great lobster rolls and lobster stew Beerworks for duh! Beers by Maine craft breweries Maine-ly Meats. Great BBQ And CJ's for the best blueberry pie ala mode or blueberry soft serve (we did this about every night) In short don't pass up this destination and lovely home"

  • Perfect Maine Vacation

    "This cottage was everything we were looking for in our Main vacation. It's off the beaten path and away from tourists but close enough to enjoy all the amenities of Bar Harbor.it's located in a very quiet secluded area and has a spectacular view. It happened to be unseasonably cold while we were there, so,we did not get to Open the cottage windows and enjoy the ocean breeze. We did, however, thoroughly enjoyed the fireplace. Laura is an excellent hostess and always promptly responded to my emails. She also has many great restaurant suggestions. We enjoyed the cottage so much, my mother rented the cottage next year,and we hope to join her during her time there."

  • Nice little apartment in a great location!

    "We have stayed at this apartment twice now with our daughter (6 mos first visit and 2.5 yrs second visit) and really liked it. The apartment is neat, nicely furnished, and has all that a small family needs. The owners are very nice and the communication has been good with both trips. It is wonderful to spend the day at Acadia and come back to the convenience of Bar Harbor. If you have a small child I would recommend bringing a child gate (we did), as the stairway up to the apartment is open and quite steep. We will definitely be back in the years to come."

  • A Gorgeous Property and Fantastic Experience!

    "The Down East Cottage is an absolutely lovely home and exceeded our expectations in every way for our family vacation in Maine...the setting is more breathtaking than the photos capture! The cottage is pristine and is the perfect location to access MDI/Acadia and we also had a fantastic experience right around the corner at Lamoine beach finding starfish, quahog and razor clams, eels, and more...our kids had a blast! We enjoyed making s'mores and sitting by the fire pit, playing family games, listening to records, and watching movies after long, action-packed excursions in Acadia, Bar Harbor and beyond. Other favorites included discovering the Bar Harbor Farmer's Market on Sunday morning, popovers and hiking at Jordan Pond, Bass Harbor Lighthouse/Trail, Thurston's Lobster Pound (wow!), shopping in Southwest Harbor, and Echo Lake/Cadillac Mountain adventures. We created countless memories at this lovely home in Maine. Shirley and George are extremely responsive owners, easy to communicate with, and extremely thoughtful as they even had a welcome gift to greet us when we arrived. I would highly recommend this property for anyone wanting to experience everything Bar Harbor/Acadia has to offer, while simultaneously enjoying the privacy and solace of a secluded, beautiful waterfront property."
