The Chickadee Suite is an immaculately kept, fully-equipped Suite located at Hummingbird Suites.

One of our guests had this to say about this Suite: 'We love it here!! To find Hummingbird Suites was to find a slice of heaven in the midst of an already perfect oasis. Can't wait to come back. You are gracious & thoughtful and this is truly the best place we have ever stayed on any vacation'.

About Kevin and Donna Kane

Donna and I built Hummingbird Suites ourselves and named it after Donna's favorite

bird. Kevin works at a local genetic research facility and Donna is a beautician and runs her own Salon. Kevin is from Florida and Donna from Massachusetts.

Kevin and Donna Kane purchased this apartment in 2002

Why Kevin and Donna Kane chose Bar Harbor

We live so close to the national park and we had so many friends from other States always wanting to stay with us because of the beauty and so many outdoor activities that we decided it was a great location for a vacation rental.

What makes this apartment unique

Hummingbird Suites is only one mile from the National Park and yet close to town but you don't have to fight the traffic of an in-town location. Also we have plenty of parking which can be quite an issue in town. Our favorite activity is watching the numerous hummingbirds that spend their summers here at the Suites visiting a variety of flowers in our gardens.

Guestbook comments from the owner

THE HUMMINGBIRD SUITES

As I sit here on the back deck of my suite sipping my tea

The morning sun peaks over the roof to warm and greet me

In the distance Cadillac Mountain is raising its bald head above the trees

And I am surrounded by hummingbirds and chickadees

The scent of flowers and pines fill the air

I don't have a single care

The place I am staying has two quiet suites that are as clean as pins

And I highly recommend them over the Bar Harbor Inn's

They are located just a few miles from downtown Bar Harbor

on Highway 3

Which is most convenient as you will see

If and when I come back to Maine I will stay here again

I highly recommend them over any Bar Harbor Inn

You can take it from me the place is hard to beat

And they call the place the Hummingbird Suite

Charming!

  • 5 of 5

Would absolutely stay there again. It was very clean, thoughtfully stocked with supplies and well maintained. Close enough to Bar Harbor without all of the crowds. Easy access to Acadia.

Beautiful Cozy Stay!

  • 5 of 5

The suite is so beautiful and charming. We really appreciated how clean and well stocked the suite was (especially the kitchen)! Donna and Kevin really thought of everything from spices in the pantry, to the extra blankets under the bed. The property was filled with beautiful flowers and we even saw hummingbirds out front. An extra thank you to Kevin for showing us the garden in the back and lending his knowledge of growing mushrooms! We hope to be back soon :)

Very convenient and family friendly!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here with our toddler and preschooler and had a lovely stay! As mentioned, the owners have chickens, geese, and ducks on the premises and our little ones not only were treated to a viewing of a duck/ geese bath, but we also purchased beyond fresh duck and chicken eggs, which our kids requested to eat every morning!

The location is on a main road but the feel of the property is lovely and it's a little oasis. During our stay in July, the flowers were amazing beautiful and uplifting. Having access to a fully stocked kitchen and a washing machine and dryer available were very convenient. The bed and the futon were both very comfortable the overall unit was extremely clean. There's a little private deck and a grill out back associated with the chickadee suite. Plus, the hosts were extremely nice and approachable!!!

The proximity to the national park is great. We often would park either at the visitor center or the within the park and then take advantage of the Island Explorer bus system during the day to avoid dealing parking during the day. If you wanted to only take the bus while you're in town, you could flag down the "Oceanarium" route bus and take it back to the suite at the end of the day.

Other random tips:

Jessup trail, ocean path trail, and Wonderland trails for young kids. The Jordan Pond loop was doable but a little long for our little ones at about 3.2 miles.

Cadillac Mountain after 6pm if you're not there for sunrise. The light is beautiful for photos and it's not too packed

other fun things for kids: the park ranger programs (touch tank program, especially if you need a rainy day activity), PJ story time at the Bar Harbor library (check for hours, there's story time and an activity)

We had a fantastic stay here and would definitely recommend it to others!!

Perfect for our family's week in Acadia

  • 5 of 5

Perfect for our week around Acadia and on Mt. Desert Island. It was clean and the perfect amount of space, with all the amenities! Nice hosts and it was a very convenient spot for everywhere!

Very clean and was perfect for our stay

  • 5 of 5

We were pleasantly surprised of how well this unit fit our needs. Great location to get to anywhere on the island and away from the crazy traffic in Bar Harbor. But close enough to jump into town at a moments notice. We will book here again.
