Why Janice chose Town Hill
My husband and I spent many summers here until we decided to move here in 1989. We love Acadia National Park and the towns on MDI. (And fresh lobster of course). Spend your vacation at our rental property and I'm sure you'll fall in love with Maine too!

Clean and comfortable. Good location as a base for all our activities.
Great homebase for exploring the island
This is a great little cottage to use as a homebase for exploring Acadia NP and Bar Harbor. It's less than 10 minutes from Bar Harbor and getting on the park loop road was easy too. There was plenty of room for our family of 5. The kitchen was well stocked with everything that we needed when we decided to cook dinner at home. Although, I couldn't find grill tools and tongs would've been nice the day I grilled. The kitchen drawers fell apart during our stay. It looked as if a previous renter tried to rig the tracks with tape and zip ties and it didn't hold together. The owner was easy to reach, if we needed her for anything. There are plenty of useful books and brochures in the house for the local sites. We will most likely rent this property again when we return to Acadia.
Hi Eric (Haskins family):
Glad you enjoyed your stay and all of the great things to do in Acadia National Park.
Thank you for letting me know about the kitchen drawer before you left the other day (otherwise I wouldn't know it needed attention).
I wish you had called or texted me when you were grilling. The grill tools are kept under the kitchen sink by the big lobster pot.
Looking forward to your return.
We really enjoyed our stay. The property was clean and comfortable. We didn't spend much time outside at the house because the mosquitos were bad. The only down side was there must have been someone that rented that had a dog or cat because I am allergic to both and there was a lot of hair on the sofa and I ended up getting stuffy and itchy eyes so I vacuumed the sofa so I was able to sit there. I would rent again. It was close to Acadia national park and about 11 miles from downtown Bar Harbor.
Carol, I am so sorry there was pet hair on the couch. The cleaner should have vacuumed the couch. This house is pet friendly and the renters that left the day you arrived did have a pet. If you want to come back again, I do have a house listed with HomeAway that is in the same location - it is pet free. That would probably be a better fit for you. (It is HomeAway Property #3557261). Please accept my apologies and we do give a $100. per week discount for your next visit.
Great Home Base
We had a wonderful time staying at this property. It's a nice house in a wooded setting, a few houses close by, but a quiet setting. The owner was easy to contact and quick to respond to the couple calls we made to her. The house has everything you would need for a comfortable stay on MDI. The park, trails, the ocean... everything just a few minutes drive!
About 5 miles to Acadia National Park Visitor's Center. Catch the Island Explorer free bus and go virtually anywhere on the island! Tour the Park Loop Road scenic drive or hike/bike the many trails or carriage roads/ Acadia National Park has several miles of hiking trails and carriage roads for hiking, biking, etc.
