A true break from reality
"The house is amazing. Centrally located, it allowed us to be in downtown Bar Harbor in less than 15 minutes most nights. The pictures don't do the space justice as there is plenty of room in the kitchen for 12 to eat. Also, this house is set up for families with children. There were numerous books and games for the kids to play with so that we didn't have to bring our own. Also, there was a guitar and piano in the house. They thought of everything. And, while you're there, you're truly alone, with just nature around you. A fantastic location and a fantastic house."

Perfect Place to Stay in Bar Harbor... especially if you have a little one!
"I'm still here and was just very eager to write a stellar review. We couldn't be happier staying here!
We had never been to Bar Harbor before, so we were "blindly" looking for accommodations. When booking at first, I was concerned that the apartment is a few miles out of town, but I AM SO GLAD WE ARE NOT IN THE MIDDLE OF TOWN! The apartment is quiet with ocean breezes and lots of sun-- none of which I think you would get amidst the business of town. Town is only a quick 5 minute drive and there is plenty of parking. Very convenient.
The apartment is also a stone's throw from the Acadia entrance, which turned to be perfect when traveling with our 2-year old. We can enjoy part of the park in the morning, conveniently head home for nap time, then head back. If you plan to visit the park (and it will take you DAYS to enjoy all parts), this is the perfect location. There is also Hull's Cove, a little beach, and restaurant about a block away.
As far as the apartment-- it is absolutely lovely! It is so clean and well-maintained that I feel like we are the first family to stay in it. Very comfortable. Every detail is gorgeous and meticulous (including fresh flowers upon arrival! And sand toys and coolers for trips to the beach!) Monique and Joe are kind and attentive. They even have a lovely outdoor patio for tenants with a fireplace stocked with wood and gas and charcoal grills. Perfect place for wine in the evening after putting the little one to bed! We are also very appreciative that they have a Pack and Play. That means we all get a good night's sleep!
We highly highly recommend staying here!"

"The pictures of the interior of the Boat House were very accurate. The remodel of the home was tastefully done and up to date. The views of the harbor from the living room were spectacular. We stayed at the end of the season and it was a bit chilly. The heating system was a bit of an issue as the pipes banged at night which interrupted our sleep. We also new it was a working harbor but if you were a light sleeper the fishermen and boats would wake you up early in the morning. We are early risers so that was not an issue. The owners should also let guests know that there is a room attached to the house that harbor/marina folks use. That did startle us when we first heard people in the room. Some other improvements would be to update the linens and towels, connect tv to cable in the bed room , a vacuum cleaner, and to leave instructions on how to use the VCR.
Aside from the few things we mentioned it was a nice place to stay."

"We found this house to be very comfortable. It is extremely close to the main street in Northeast Harbor, where there is a grocery, bakery, cafe, and plenty of shops to explore. The bus to Acadia and Bar Harbor runs right past the house. The house itself is bright and airy with high ceilings. It has a lovely deck and we ate outside several times. The beds were extremely comfortable with high quality linens. The layout is a little interesting, with one bedroom upstairs and the others downstairs, which allowed for a private hideaway. The kitchen, though smallish in terms of work surfaces, was well equipped with decent knives and ample glassware, dishes and pots/pans. The bathrooms are a bit old-fashioned (the kids got a kick out of the separate hot/cold water faucets)."
