  • All the comforts of home.

    "Loved it here. Right in the center of town. Easy access to everything and being able to wash my clothes and relax as needed. Perfection."

    "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."

  • Great home in a great location!

    "When we were looking for a place to stay in Bar Harbor and found this home we were slightly concerned about the lack of recent reviews but decided to give it a try anyway. I am so glad we did! This home is in a great location close to Acadia, downtown, and hiking trails. We walked into town everyday and also hiked and biked right from the property. Since we were there at a busy time for tourist, when we did drive into town it was a challenge to find a parking space but we were always able to do so. It was so nice to come back to a quiet home after spending time in town! We had 4 adults in our party, and there was plenty of space in the home. We only cooked dinner in one evening, but we could have easily done so every night since the kitchen was so well stocked. The Barkers have many staples in the home that we have had to buy at the store when renting other places such as paper towels, toilet paper, coffee filters, spices and so on. They even left 2 cold locally brewed blueberry beers with frosted mugs in the refrigerator ready for our arrival! We had one extremely minor problem with the dryer and Mr. Barker came right over when we called. We highly recommend a trip to Bar Harbor and that you stay at the Northridge Townhouse when you are there. You will not be disappointed."

  • Perfect spot of Fall in Acadia

    "Rugosa is a beautiful and peaceful cottage minutes from Acadia and a perfect place to welcome Fall each year. Rugosa is a perfect, yet simple, home-away-from-home for a week and I always look forward to walking through the front door at the start of our week. From early mornings down by the water, exploring what the tides brought the night before, to tucking in by the fire on a chilly early Fall evening, the space is warm and inviting. We've been bringing our kids since one was a year and a half and the other a baby. For years when afternoon naps are essential, the cottage location is perfect to spend a morning in the park and be back in time for a nap in the afternoon. Otherwise, it is so nice to only have a short drive back after a day of putzing around Bar Harbor or hiking and biking Acadia. My family enjoys meals overlooking the water and watching the sunset while cooking is a special treat. This cottage is a perfect spot to be with each other and soak in the natural beauty of a place as special as Mt. Desert Island--it makes for a truly memorable week and one that I look forward to each year."

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.
