About Jane Holland / Steve Cornell

Owners are local residents who also own a Bed and Breakfast in downtown Bar Harbor

Jane Holland / Steve Cornell purchased this house in 2012

Why Jane Holland / Steve Cornell chose Bar Harbor

Located near the water and the Shorepath, you can often hear the local lobster boats fishing. We are long time Bar Harbor residents who visited the island for many years before moving here full time. Once you visit, you will know why! The house is located on a private road at the end of a dead end street. It's private, quiet, near the water, and close enough to downtown to walk to all our restaurants.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Dear Jane and Steve,

Thank you so much for sharing the Seabreeze Cottage with us! It was

truly a blessing to be back in Bar Harbor. Staying at the Seabreeze

cottage added immensely to the enjoyment of our trip.

We love the location, the quiet street, the front porch (where we

sipped coffee and watch deer!), the nice neighbors on Hancock Street

and the proximity to the town of Bar Harbor.

It was the perfect "Base Camp" to our daily hiking treks in Acadia. We

can't thank you enough for all the amenities (the house was beautifully

stocked: coffee filters, laundry detergent, plastic containers (for packing

peanut butter/honey sandwiches for the trail), baggies, coffee

grinder, dishwashing liquid and the list goes on! We felt very welcome

and the extras in the house were such a blessing to our growing

family! **the washer/dryer was the best! so nice to come home and not have

tons of laundry to do!!

We hope to come back to Bar Harbor and will certainly book with you

all again!

Seabreeze Cottage - Downtown Bar Harbor, Walk Everywhere!
average rating of 5.0 based on 14 reviews

Had a wonderful stay.

  • 5 of 5

House was perfect. Very clean. Great layout and well stocked. Very comfortable. Owners were very helpful and easy to deal with. The location was also ideal. Quiet but close to town and very close to the shore path. Would definitely recommend to others and will stay there again in the future.

Comfortable, well appointed, and close to downtown Bar Harbor

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 5 (with 3 kids under 10) have been coming to Bar Harbor every summer for 4 years, and Seabreeze Cottage was far and away the best place we have stayed. The house was very comfortable, with a great kitchen that gave us the option of fixing our own meals when we didn't feel like taking the kids to a restaurant every night. It is also a quick and easy walk to the heart of downtown Bar Harbor - and the Island Explorer bus stop to go anywhere in Acadia that we wanted to go without having to fight for parking spaces. To further enhance its great location, it is also in a very quiet neighborhood that is isolated from the bustle of downtown only a block away. Seabreeze is also a well appointed but kid friendly house. We have already reserved a week for next year, which is high praise in itself because we tend to never stay in the same place twice.

Quiet and Convenient Location

  • 5 of 5

The house is located within walking distance of downtown, the shore path and harbor. I cannot say enough about the convenience of this location. We parked the car and walked to most places and is very close to Acadia National Park entrances. We thoroughly enjoyed our was just like being at home.

Great house and location

  • 5 of 5

As with every other review here, I can't say enough about the house, clean, well equipped, very nicely updated. The nearby sea walk is so easy to do, and the scenery so pretty. It's also very quiet, for being so close to the center of town. Just walk to the Main St. On a Saturday night and there is a lot of hustle and bustle, but just down the street, it's like we're out in the country. My sister and brother-in-law came down from Canada and loved it. We had a great time.

Perfect Location and coming back

  • 5 of 5

We loved our cozy rental a block from the Shore Path and 2 blocks from Main Street. We walked everywhere in town. We were only 15 min. from the top of Cadillac Mtn. to watch sunrise and only a few minutes more (to get thru town) to watch sunset. We rented the cottage for 4 weeks and enjoyed cooking in the large kitchen, and relaxing on the comfortable furniture in the living room. This property is unique as it remains cool on those warm summer days because it is tucked under some old large trees. The owners love their cottage and it shows. Cottage is very clean and well equipped. Owners are very responsive and even helped my husband find a dentist for a chipped tooth. We loved Bar Harbor and the Seabreeze Cottage so much, we have already booked for next year! Thank you, Jane & Steve, and see you next summer.
