About the property

2 bedrooms, 1 bathroom, sleeps 4

This sun filled 2 bedroom, 1 bath smoke-free, pet free home is located in the busy, bustling village of Bar Harbor. Screened front porch, living room, dining room, and fully equipped kitchen are on the first floor with bedrooms and bath on the second floor. Included are TV, DVD player, washer/dryer, garage, one parking space, and wireless internet.

The enclosed outdoor patio just outside the kitchen makes every meal special. On cool mornings, the glass/screened front porch makes brunch a treat. Ideally suited for a family.

Carole completely remodeled her home with new furnishings and new landscaping in 2011. Her hand made pottery dinnerware (Carole Beal Stoneware) is in the kitchen.

Just blocks away and a short walk are the ocean, shore path, town pier, shops, galleries, museums, restaurants, grocers, farmers’ markets, churches, concerts and movies. No need to drive or look for parking all week.

Use the free Island Explorer Bus to visit all of Acadia National Park: carriage roads, hiking trails, sand beaches, walking and biking loops around ponds and beside the ocean. Don’t miss popovers at Jordan Pond House, the view from the top of Cadillac, Sieur de Monts Spring with its Nature Center and Wild Gardens, and Bar Harbor’s 18-hole golf course.

Make a reservation to sail, whale watch, kayak and/or explore the sea bottom aboard Diver Ed’s lobster boat. Take a ferry to Cranberry Island or for a longer trip, Swans Island. The weekly “Beaver Log” gives daily schedules of free events led by Park Rangers. Venture out to explore beavers, tide pools, stars, trails. Take boat trips to explore islands with picnics on the beach. It will be a summer to long remember.

Perfect for our stay in Bar Harbor!

  • 5 of 5

My husband found Carole's home on VRBO and it looked perfect for our stay in Bar Harbor. The location is convenient for walking to town and a short drive to Acadia National Park. Carole's home is very comfortable and was well stocked. We didn't have an opportunity to meet Carole, but she was a delight to work with and was quick to respond to our inquiries. It was also a treat to use her beautiful pottery!

Great house & proximi, but beware of traffic level

  • 4 of 5

Nice home- comfortable and well-appointed. Outside- lovingly maintained and pretty private patio. Perfect walking distance to town. Super friendly landlord. However, beware if you are a light sleeper. Busy road, plus a neighbor who fires up noisy jeep every weekday morning at 5:15am. :(

Owner's Response: Thank you for letting me know about my neighbor's jeep. I talked to him recently. He is truly sorry, and apologizes for the disturbance. He no longer parks his jeep on the street beside my home, and assures me that he will not park there in the future.

Pretty house in an ideal location!

  • 5 of 5

My family stayed for a week at Carole's lovely house. It was our first trip to Bar Harbor and we were so lucky to find her place. It's perfectly located for walking to downtown Bar Harbor. It was so convenient to eat in town and be able to walk home. Plus, it's a great location for driving into Acadia National Park and exploring the other quaint towns. The kitchen is well stocked with pots, pans and utensils. Our children loved the rainfall shower! And Carole's beautiful pottery made our meals extra special. :) We loved our stay and Carole made us feel right at home!

Charming house and yard!

  • 5 of 5

A friend and I rented Carole's house for a week long getaway. It was a charming house that was perfect for us. We loved being able to walk to downtown, saving the hassle of finding a parking place! The kitchen was well equipped for meals in, including Carole's beautiful pottery dishes. There were books in the bookshelves and direct tv for our entertainment when we weren't enjoying Acadia National Park near by. We hope to return next year!

Very nice location for a young family !

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed staying at 5 Eden Street for a week with our 2 daughters. Ideal for a family with young kids or teenagers, the property is well-maintained, clean and very practical.

We enjoyed using the BBQ on the terrace.

The location is perfect for activities: walking distance to downtown Bar Harbor and close to the Acadia Park.

We also appreciated to meet the Owner, she was very nice and caring.

We will definitively recommend this property to a friend!

Wonderful and Relaxing!

  • 5 of 5

I have used HomeAway to procure vacation rentals for the past several years, in several different locations. I have never been happier with my rental experience. From the first e-mail interactions with the owner, through the very prompt return of our security deposit, this vacation rental experience was pleasant, relaxing and stress free. This home was perfect for our family of four. My daughters, ages 4 and 10 loved hanging out both inside and outside of this home. Some days, we had to pry them away from playing on the sun porch, or playing on the patio. Carole has spent a great deal of time making her home a clean and comfortable place to stay. As a runner, I enjoyed running right into Acadia National Park for my morning runs, along my favorite trails. This home serves as a great base for exploring all that Mount Desert Island has to offer, and is a warm and relaxing place to return, at the end of a long and tiring day. I’m happy to say that we were so busy having family time, that we did not even turn on the television, for the entire week. This home, beautiful inside and out, made for a very memorable vacation experience. We are thankful to have met the owner, and look forward to renting from her in the future.
