Wonderful House , great location and fantastic owners!
"My husband and I had a rental in Bar Harbor double book us , letting us know about it last minute. We had to scramble to find a place to stay and thankfully this fantastic place happened to have an opening for the four days we needed. I can't say enough about the owners here. Jan was so accommodating and such a pleasure to talk to. There is also a restaurant they owned literally down the drive of the home that was delicious and perfect to have so close by. The home was spotless and decorated giving it a very homey feel. Usually we ALWAYS bring our own bed linens on our vacations but this is the first time we didn't use them because we completely trusted that everything was clean and comfy. Jan gave us great suggestions for our time there and we were pinching ourselves to be staying in such a nice place with such a beautiful view of the ocean from the upper deck. We have never stayed in the same place twice but if we go back to Maine I will be booking this place again well in advance, we adored it so. Thank you Jan and Karen for making our anniversary vacation so perfect !

"This cabin really feels like a home-- with the kitchen ready for cooking. The setting is superb-- a quiet bay. Maybe out favorite place to stay. Close to everything, yet set away from the world. we had a great time.
Be sure to ask for the directions again if she doesn't send them."

"We had a wonderful time at this cottage! We have not relaxed this much in years. We enjoyed Schoonic Point several times! Ventured to Acadia national Park! Saw an awesome sunset at Cadillac Mountain! The view from cottage was amazing! If you are looking for a relaxing place to stay this is it! Bar Harbor not a bad drive and well worth the visit! Winter Harbor was welcoming with a must visit to Gerrish's for breakfast or lunch! Overall a wonderful vacation we will be talking about for some time! Thanks Audrey and Karen for renting to us! We hope to come back again!"

"We arrived on Sunday evening and could not have been more excited about our drive to Bass Harbor. Our vacation rental was located in a large historic home owned by Barb and Bill Evans. The house was constructed in the mid 1800's. The home is been sectioned off converting the back half into its own private living quarters. This charming rental has a very large kitchen, two bedrooms, two baths, living and laundry room. The rental is complete with wifi and cable tv. The best asset of the home are the owners Barb and Bill Evans. Barb and Bill have been living at their summer home for the past 27 years. They have a wealth of knowledge about the local establishments and historic parts of Mt. Desert Island and Acadia. Fresh lobsters can be purchased across the street, and if you need help, Bill graciously volunteers his time to show you how to prepare them. Bass Harbor is a beautiful, picturesque harbor town. As you look out across the bay you see what you have always imagined....lobster boats, lobster buoys, sailboats, and boat docks. The village homes are complimented by landscaping arrangements full of a vast variety of delightful wild flowers. Across the harbor you can see the town of Bernard nestled on a hill displaying it's own small town charm. The best thing about Bass Harbor is that it is removed from all of the hustle and bustle found in the other harbor town communities on Mt. Desert Island. It is so much more relaxing than having to deal with the traffic and commercialism found in the nearby towns. After you have had a day out touring Acadia National Park, Bass Harbor, Southwest Harbor and Northeast Harbor you can come back to Barb and Bill Evan's rental for a relaxing evening, take a walk around the bay, or eat at the Seafood Katch. I would not stay anywhere else....hoping to return for another great vacation!"
