Nice quiet spot

  • 5 of 5

I loved this place! It was a perfect spot to stay in. Away from the high traffic areas so you can you get some peace an quiet, but not too far from the trails or downtown Bar Harbor. Rob was very nice and very informative. They were there if you needed them. The place had everything you needed.

Perfect! Affordable and everything you need in Bar Harbor!

  • 5 of 5

Dragonfly woods is the perfect place to stay in Bar Harbor. It is beautiful inside and out. The kids (and dog)enjoyed their back yard and blueberry bushes. The apartment is so well stocked. The linens and towels are high quality. Rob and Gayle are the most helpful hosts. They gave us great suggestions and told us not to hesitate in asking them questions. The rental is close to downtown Bar Harbor and Acadia. We had the best week. I almost want to keep this place a secret.

Great location and wonderful hosts

  • 5 of 5

Dragonfly Woods Apartment was perfect for our family of 4, with two young children. The apartment is very clean, and well equipped to meet our needs. We were able to have most of breakfasts and dinners in the apartment.

We really liked the location of the apartment. It's only few miles from the Hulls Cove Visitor Center and downtown Bar Harbor. There is a shuttle stop a short walk from the apartment. The shuttle is free, and this particular route goes to the visitor center and then downtown.

Our hosts Gayle and Rob were very friendly and helpful. Before we arrived, they had a high chair and a pack'n play out in the apartment for our toddler. The kids spent a lot of time playing in the yard, on the swings or the hammock in the evening.

We would definitely recommend the property to others, and wouldn't hesitate to rent it again if we were to visit Acadia again.
