About Monique Hanson
Joe and Monique met several years ago and began what many would describe as a second life together. Joe is a cabinet maker and a native of Bar Harbor but has lived in Hulls Cove for many years while Monique now works at a locally owned pharmacy and at the MDI hospital. .Together their personal goals merged on a paralell path,Joe now has the cabinet shop he has alwas wanted and for Monique a small buisness ownership that puts her in contact with a variety of interesting people. They now very much look forward to the new friends and experiences that sharing their property and the Island's treasures will bring.
Monique Hanson purchased this Apartment in 2011
Why Monique Hanson chose Bar Harbor
This vacation rental was built in 2010/2011 and is attached to our home in Hulls Cove.We really enjoy being just outside the busy streets of Bar Harbor but within easy walking distance of the Acadia Park entrance/ Visitors Center and Hulls Cove Beach.
What makes this Apartment unique
We are located 3 miles outside of Bar Harbor and just .3 tenths of a mile from the Acadia Park Entrance.Hulls Cove beach is across the street as well as the Chart Room Restraunt,Pizza shop,Hulls Cove General store and Post office. The Island Explorer is a free shuttle service that picks up at the end of our street beginning June 23rd through Columbus Day.The Island Explorer has 8 bus routes linking to all nearby village centers and throughtout the park.

Beautiful, comfortable, and quiet
The suite is newly refinished, with exceptional craftsmanship and attention to detail. It is stocked with everything you would expect along with many extras. It is on a quiet street, but close to the action of Bar Harbor and even closer to the Hull's Cove entrance to Acadia National Park. Monique and Joe are the perfect hosts - friendly and helpful, but respectful of your privacy. The comfortable living room is a great place to unwind at the end of the day and the separate sleeping room is quiet and cozy. We would definitely stay there again.
Cute and convenient apartment
The wayfaring mermaid is a wonderful place when staying on Mount Desert Island. Monique and her husband take such great care of their place and have everything needed for an excellent stay. It might be just above their house but you would never know it. Super private but they make themselves available for questions. We had a wonderful fire in their fireplace in the courtyard and it was perfect. The apartment had plenty of space for the 2 of us-much more space than a hotel would have had. The full kitchen was great. We saved a bundle by preparing our own breakfasts and a couple other meals as well. The location was perfect as well. VERY short drive into the Hulls Cove Acadia National Park entrance (I think you could probably walk too), a walk across the road for watching the water, and a short drive into Bar Harbor. Thanks for being wonderful hosts-we would stay here again in a heartbeat!
Great location to Acadia - clean, quiet, everything we needed
We really enjoyed staying at the Wayfaring Mermaid Suite. You can't beat the location if you are visiting Acadia. Not far from Bar Harbor either. The suite was like new, very clean and nicely decorated. We would highly recommend to others. Thanks for the nice stay!
Lovely Apartment Near Hiking Trails
The Wayfaring Mermaid Suite is one of the most well-equipped properties we have ever rented on VRBO. Monique and her husband have provided all the amenities you could possibly need in a vacation rental. We would like to have stayed longer! This apartment is a great location, super clean, has a well-equipped kitchen and is very comfortable. I highly recommend this property.
Quiet peaceful stay near Acadia
The apartment was really beautiful and comfortable. It was just as pictured. We had everything we needed and more. Wish we could have stayed longer. Our hosts were very helpful, but not intrusive. They recommended a hike from the house into Acadia that was beautiful. If you are a hiker or runner, you could leave the car at the house and just take the trail into Acadia. We would recommend this apartment to anyone that wants to be near Acadia. And it's such a short drive into downtown that you don't miss out on anything and you get to have peace and quiet.
It is indeed a great trail that many of our guests have enjoyed. It also is a very popular mountain bike and XC ski trail enjoyed year round by all skill levels and this includes photographers and bird watchers who also find it very appealing. One of many little known gems we can recommend. As to being accommodating and not intrusive we put much thought into planning the layout of the apartment and it's private courtyard in relationship to our space indoor and out. We realize being the owners on the property can raise a question or two about privacy.Thanks to that careful planning we are naturally separated and contact is either intentional on our guests part or the chance meetings in the driveway which frequently end in the best conversations which to us are the hidden gems of this business. Thanks for the helpful thoughts. Monique and Joe
We so enjoyed our stay in Bar Harbor! The apartment was very nice and extremely comfortable. Great access to Acadia NP. Monique and Joe were great hosts and have a great hotel alternative. Highly reccomend!
We admit to a bit of bias but we view a good hotel as a fair alternative to a nicely appointed, fully functional, custom built suite. Having done it all ourselves we feel we have earned the right to that opinion. Thank you for raising the topic of comparisons, it's a common conversation and a good one we have with many guests. Thanks again Joe and Monique
