  • 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."

  • 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."

  • Wonderful home away from home !

    "When we walked into the house we were amazed at how immaculate it was. Dee Dee has made this a wonderful "home" to stay in. We were surprised to find binoculars and cooler bags that we could use in the park provided. When we booked Dee Dee made sure that the rooms were set up for our boys and my eldest took the pull out couch in the living room as his personal bedroom ! The location was perfect as it is on a quiet road but is only a few minutes walk from town. The back deck is a lovely place to spend a quiet evening outside enjoying the fresh Maine air. This is a place that will want to go back to the next time we visit Bar Harbor !"

  • 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.
