Recent Bar Harbor reviews
Superb Bar Harbor rental
"This is a superb holiday home.
Dee Dee is the most charming and welcoming of owners, and the property itself is maintained to the highest possible standards. Dee Dee's attention to detail is fantastic.
She goes the extra mile to ensure that your stay will be perfect.
The house is within a 5 minute walk of all of the town's facilities - very convenient.
The town of Bar Harbor is a must see for New England visitors. The town itself is absolutely charming - and has a "real" feel to it. The Acadia National Park next to Bar Harbor is one of America's real national treasures and should not be missed on any account. It is magnificent and stunningly beautiful.
If you stay here you will, like us, have a fantastic and wholly memorable vacation. Do not miss it . Dee Dee's "Home from Home" is the perfect base for your stay.
We loved it and have no hesitation in recommending it wholeheartedly to others."

"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!"

"We had such a great time staying in this cozy cottage. The sunroom overlooking the water was my favorite place to sit. We saw seals playing and the fog rolling in at night. At high tide, you can hear the water from the master bedroom which just lulled us to sleep. The kitchen has everything you need to cook meals if you want. Although there is not a washer and dryer, the kitchen sink is plenty big to rinse out a few items of clothes. Also, there is no wifi or TV which we thought was a bonus and we didn't miss either one at all! There is a radio so we listened to music. Cell service (Verizon) worked great! You can rent kayaks from a local company that will deliver right to the cabin (or bring your own) so we enjoyed the Western Bay waterfront access from the cabin. The cabin is located on a very quiet road and only 7 miles from the main entrance to Acadia National Park, 9 miles to Bar Harbor, and 10 miles to Ellsworth. We did not have any traffic to deal with. Lots of restaurants nearby and an IGA grocery that has everything else you might need. They even sell spirits and Maine's famous blueberry wine. Thank you Pat and Bob for sharing your cabin and we hope we can get to Maine again soon. There are many more hiking trails that we need to do."

"My family had a wonderful vacation visiting Acadia and this home was the perfect home base for us. We were traveling with a 6 month old and the house's close location to everything made it convenient to not have to have him stuck in the carseat for prolonged periods of time. In addition, there was plenty to keep us occupied at the house during nap time. It was wonderful to explore the water around the house in the kayaks and wander around the tide pools. The house was spaciousl, clean, and well-equipped. We will definitely use this house again if we find ourselves back in the area!"
