  • Amazing Family Celebration!

    "We enjoyed our week with both of our sons' families, which included twin thirteen year old girls and infants 9 and 13 months. This lovely home is comfortable and was equipped to accommodate all of our needs! Everything that was promised materialized including blueberries for breakfast! We could not have been happier or more pleased!"

  • 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."

  • Simply Perfect!

    "The Wayfaring Mermaid Suite is simply gorgeous...it is one of the few places I have visited where the actual property is even better than the photos. My mom and I were able to enjoy this beautiful apartment in the most perfect location, along with my 2 year-old daughter. It is clean, well- stocked, comfortable, well appointed...I was able to set up a pack and play in the bedroom, and my mom used the sofa sleeper in the main room. She said it was very comfortable, and she loved the breeze from the open windows! The bedroom bed was just as wonderful as my own bed! Monique and Joe are both so kind, and the attention to detail when building this unit is very impressive! Joe is a highly skilled craftsman, and he handcrafted the entire apartment...gorgeous (I know I am using this word a great deal...but, it's the best word to describe this place). The courtyard, which we didn't get to spend nearly enough time enjoying, was adorable... We were able to walk to the Chart House Restaurant, which is just steps from the apartment; we also took advantage of the ice cream shop at the end of the street, as well! The rocky beach (also steps from the apartment), was the perfect spot for photos! It was a quick two minute drive to the Acadia National Park and just minutes to downtown Bar Harbor. You must visit Cadillac Mountain! I lived in Hawaii for two years (which has always been my favorite place on earth), and I really think Bar Harbor and the park might have moved past the islands:) We took a little drive to Bass Harbor, which was also gorgeous (beautiful sunset by the lighthouse). If you're looking for the perfect place to in the most perfect location...this is exactly where you need to stay! I hope to be able to return and enjoy this property with my husband!"

  • Everything We Hoped For

    "We found the Chickadee Suite with its king-size bed and separate siting room with kitchenette to be very conveniently located, impeccably clean, wonderfully designed with every thought given to convenience by the gracious hosts, Donna and Kevin. We stayed three days, including one day of rain, and couldn't have been more comfortable."

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.
