Comfortable for family of three or four

  • 5 of 5

Location is everything! I had my two teenaged children and the three of us made the single bathroom work. The park is close, we walked to Bar Harbor every day, and only locked ourselves out once. No worries, the owner let us in within 10 minutes.

Nice apartment with a perfect location

  • 4 of 5

The apartment was perfect for our trip to MDI. It's very close to the park entrance and walking distance to everything in Bar Harbor. The living space itself is great. The master bedroom is beautiful with vaulted ceilings and lots of natural light. The kitchen is large and well stocked with pots and cooking utensils. And we had use of the garage to park our car, which was an added bonus. The host was very welcoming and helpful. She met us when we arrived and gave us a tour of the apartment. She was available if we needed anything but gave us all the space we needed to enjoy our vacation. All in all this place was great! We would definitely stay here again.

Great place to stay

  • 5 of 5

We had a great stay in the cottage. Lots of room for the 3 of us (couple with a 5 yr old). Clean and had all of the essentials. Kitchen was well equipped and great for making our own meals when we didn't want to eat out, including breakfast, local seafood and grilling- convenient and saved us a lot. Nice to have our own garage for parking and a washer and dryer so we didn't have to pack a week's worth of clothes. Huge master bedroom with a smaller kids room off the master worked well for us and the beds were comfortable. Having the only bathroom downstairs wasn't a big deal. Close to downtown so that we could walk into town and avoid the traffic and hassle of staying downtown. Overall, a very pleasant stay.

Nice area. Driveway is steep.

Cute home. Very handy to down town and Acadia. Road noise a little loud with the windows opened.

Good location if you want to be within walking distance to restaurants and shopping in Bar Harbor.

  • 4 of 5

The owner was very nice and helpful with suggestions for places to hike and visit. The house had everything we needed, including a washer and dryer. Previous reviews mentioned the stairs and bathroom being on a separate floor from the bedroom. The only negative for us was the lack of curtains in the bedroom. The sun came through the windows around 4:30-5 and woke us up. Bar Harbor and Acadia are great. It was our first visit and we will definitely be back some time to see the fall colors.

Tops in Convenience

  • 5 of 5

I enjoyed my stay. The home was fairly close to downtown Bar Harbor (close enough where I always walked) and within a 1/2 mile or so of a full service supermarket. The rooms were roomy and the unit was clean and well equipped. They had guidebooks, some of which they wrote that were especially handy and useful. They even had a full two car garage with a washing machine that my miniature car fit comfortably into (the garage, not the washing machine).

A few things to keep in mind. They warn you there are stairs. One enters through the garage and in the daytime and when only carrying a camera and the spooky house key, it isn't any big deal. However, they were a little steeper and the steps smaller than what I was used to. Also a bit tricky in the dark, although I eventually found the light switches behind the shelves in the living room by the door. Truly it wasn't a big deal, but hauling up a suitcase one needs to be careful. There is only one bathroom which was very handy when in the kitchen or downstairs, but it isn't on the same floor as the bedrooms. Bathroom was fine, clean, sized fine etc., but not close to the bed. There are two bedrooms, both upstairs, and their layout could be really ideal, or not so much, depending on your circumstances. They look like they were at one time one room where a wall was added (and a door). So for a couple with small children would probably find it ideal. However, for two couples it might lack enough privacy. One couple is going to have to walk through the bedroom of the other couple to use the "facilities" downstairs. I was by myself, so I found it to be fine. I only used the main bedroom and it was quite roomy and the bed was very comfortable. My comments are mostly quibbles. I enjoyed my stay and would certainly not hesitate to stay there again.
