About Marie Yarborough
We have lived in Bar Harbor for over 15 years. Marie began working at the Jordan Pond House during summers, earning money to pay for college. After traveling to France to visit family, a road-trip across the United States, and finishing graduate school she moved to MDI for good. Kyle came to Acadia after graduating from college in the South. He planned to work in different national parks across the country. After working in Glacier National Park in Montana, he headed to Acadia for one season, where Marie and Kyle's paths finally crossed. The rest is history! We now own and operate a small bistro in Bar Harbor and Marie is a Ranger at Acadia. We feel lucky to call this amazing place home, and could not imagine raising our young family anywhere else.
Marie Yarborough purchased this House in 2011
Why Marie Yarborough chose Bar Harbor
This property is close to everything wonderful about in-town Bar Harbor, but still quiet and residential-the best of both worlds. You can sleep with your windows open and smell the ocean when you wake. It is modern, clean, uncluttered, and filled with all the amenities you'll need to make your stay relaxing. We have a personal and professional knowledge of the park and MDI, and would love to share our favorite spots to enjoy the park and island with you.
What makes this House unique
You won't find an easier, more convenient place to stay in Bar Harbor, if you are a family or a couple! You can walk to the Great Meadow Path right from the cottage, or hop in your car to access the Park Loop Road in 5 minutes, at the end of our street.

The Chickadee cottage was a wonderful fit for the four of us - it had everything we needed, was close to downtown and only a short drive from Acadia National Park. It was the perfect place to come back to after a long day of hiking, sightseeing, or shopping. It is plenty spacious and comfortable for two couples or a family on vacation. Hoping we get the opportunity to stay again in the future, thanks Marie & Kyle!
Glad you enjoyed everything! We think it's the perfect place to stay, too :-)
Cute and convenient
The house is small and cute, and conveniently located (10-15 min walk to downtown Bar Harbor). Would stay again.
Spacious cottage & close to all the action!
My husband and I had a great time visiting Mount Desert Island, and enjoyed our stay at the Chickadee Cottage very much. The location was perfect - near everything we wanted to do on our vacation. About a 10 minute walk to restaurants & shopping in Bar Harbor. Easy access to the Park Loop Road, which was perfect for all the biking & hiking we did! The cottage was clean and spacious, and had everything we needed for the week.
Nice three bedroom house within walking distance to Bar Harbor restaurants and shops.
Everything my husband and I needed for our week. We rented bikes and were able to store them on the patio beside the house. The neighborhood was safe and quiet. Lots of helpful information on Bar Harbor and Acadia National Park provided by owners in a welcome folder.
Simple home, close to everything great in Bar Harbor and Acadia
Had a great week in Kyle and Marie's comfortable house. Really well located to Acadia and walkable to Bar Harbor and all its attractions, cafes and restaurants. House was a good size for myself, husband and almost 4 year old and had everything we needed. Marie was a good host, very easy to get in touch with and responsive to queries. Would recommend!
Conveniently located cottage in Bar Harbor
This cozy cottage is located just about a 10-15 minute walk from all the shops and restaurants in Bar Harbor and is a quick 10 minute drive to the entrances of Acadia National Park. The owners made it very easy to get in and out, the neighborhood was quiet and safe, and the pictures and listing accurately depict the space. If you're looking for a more affordable option with quick and easy access to everything Bar Harbor/Acadia have to offer, this is a great choice.
Thanks Marisa, glad you enjoyed your stay so much! We agree it is the perfect spot!
