About the property

Cottage, 2 Bedrooms + sleeper sofa, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4-5)

Belle Cottage, completely renovated in 2007, is located near the end of a lovely residential street in the coastal village of Bar Harbor. Just a short walk to Great Meadow Loop in Acadia National Park with connector paths to additional trails and the Park Loop Road. Walk to shops, restaurants, museums, galleries and the Village Green where one can catch the free Island Explorer shuttle bus.

An open floor plan greets guests upon arrival allowing easy conversation flow between the living room, kitchen, dining room and reading areas. Windows on all exterior walls allow for wonderful natural light all day. Clean, white bead board, ceiling fans and a fresh color palate complete the 'Cottage Theme' and provide a cheery and comfortable ambiance.

The first floor also includes a double bedroom, full bath, pantry/laundry room and separate entrance foyer. There is a desk area in the dining room in case you need to work while on vacation and a nicely appointed living room with TV and propane "woodstove" are open to the bright kitchen area.

The second floor master suite features a queen bedroom, full bath with Victorian soaking tub, separate shower with block glass window, skylight and separate reading/TV room with sleeper sofa.

The private, fenced, backyard features a large deck with pergola, gas grill, dining table and a lovely terrace - perfect for relaxing afternoons with family and friends after a busy day in town or the park.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Our favorite adventures: visiting friends, going to Acadia, hiking the carriage roads, Diver Ed! Great restaurants we discovered: Burning Tree, Cafe This Way, a little place in Southwest Harbor near the library. From our 4 year old, Amelia: I love this house. I loved sleeping in the big bed. I love playing in this house with games like Apples to Apples, checkers and chess and dominoes.

Thank you!

Wonderful place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

We made our first trip to Bar Harbor in Sept 2012 and stayed at Belle Cottage. The whole experience was a "10". The place was neat and clean. We brought our dogs with us (thank you for allowing that) and there was a very convenient place to walk them just a minute from the cottage. It's less than a mile from the Harbor so we walked there several times a day. I would highly recommend this place to my family and friends. There were so many personal touches included, it makes you feel like you were home. There were guide books and maps for us when we got there as well as retaurant menus. We will definitely be going back to Belle Cottage.
