About Eric and Susan Meyer

We had been vacationing in Maine for thirty years, and Bar Harbor / Acadia National Park was always a highlight of our trips. We were fortunate enough to find this beautiful little cottage, in this remarkable area, and we love it! We hope that others can experience all Bar Harbor and MDI have to offer, and Apple Blossom Cottage is the perfect 'base camp'.

Eric and Susan Meyer purchased this cottage in 2007

Why Eric and Susan Meyer chose Bar Harbor

After an extensive search for a perfect home here in Bar Harbor, we were in the right place at the right time and fell in love at first sight with Apple Blossom Cottage. It is comfortable and cozy, in a great neighborhood. Perhaps what we love most is the ability to walk to everything in town, from the vibrant village scene, to awesome ocean views, and the close proximity of Acadia trails and carriageways. Bar Harbor is full of friendly people, and the village is always putting on events and that makes this a very special place. When you add very comfortable temperatures we enjoy here, it is no wonder people are strolling around, biking, hiking and having a wonderful time reconnecting.

What makes this cottage unique

Leave your car in the driveway and walk to stores, ocean, museums, restaurants, movies, trails, biking, farmer's market, or just relax. You'll really feel energized! Apple Blossom Cottage has it all.

In-town Bar Harbor Cottage

  • 5 of 5

My son, daughter and son-in-law stayed here with their dog

on a family vacation last August. Their experience was great-the house was clean, comfortable and well equipped. The owner, Linda, was a delight to work with. We chose the property becasue it was pet friendly and walk to town. I, and the rest of our family stayed on a neighboring street so it was easy for us to gather--we most often gathered at this house for lobsters etc because of it's "comfortableness". I had booked this as an Xmas gift to my children and they loved it.

Terrific week in a terrific cottage

  • 4 of 5

I recently spent a wonderful week in Bar Harbor in this cottage. The location is awesome, super close to the town center, close to Acadia entrances and even close to a playground (handy if you are like me and traveling with a 4 year old).

The house was charming and beautifully maintained. It was very clean and although small, it felt big and we never felt crowded. The kitchen was well designed and well supplied. The beds were comfortable and the deck out back was fabulous.

We would stay again with no hesitations!

A great little cottage within walking distance of Bar Harbor and Acadia hiking trails. The cottage had everything we needed for a relaxing stay and we so appreciate the pet friendly policy. Honestly, we didn't want to leave! It's close to everything in a quiet neighborhood. We would definitely rent again if we get the chance! Thank you for a great rental!

I now feel like I could live in Maine!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I arrived on July 4th, went to the Farmer's market on Sunday, we are not lobster eaters but they had a great amount of lobster/scallops, goat milk products, fresh lettuce, etc. The house was so wonderful, the nearby park, we found it to be the best we could ask for. The stairs are steep, but our dog did fine with it. I would say that at then end of the season it would be a great time to clean the furniture. SO happy that it is open to pets, but the furniture does sort of smell of past puppies!

Best location in town!

  • 5 of 5

We could not have been more pleased with our stay at Apple Blossom Cottage! The house has been updated in all the right places and was perfect for me and my husband and our dogs as we celebrated our anniversary. Upon arrival, the house was spotless and welcoming. Working with Eric and Susan was completely seemless and stress-free. It made a perfect home base for wandering around in town, hiking and biking in Acadia....all without having to touch our car! And on the one day we were rained in, the cottage was comfortable and relaxing as we waited out the rain. We could not have asked for a better week, and very much look forward to our next visit. Special thanks to Eric & Susan for making your cottage a special place for some great memories!
