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 Mount Desert Island

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.

Nice three bedroom house within walking distance to Bar Harbor restaurants and shops.

  • 4 of 5

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

  • 4 of 5

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!

EVERYTHING!!! you need under one roof

  • 5 of 5

Walking through the front door you instantly feel at home. Chickadee Cottage was everything we needed for our trip to Maine. A comfortable place to relax after a day of hiking in Acadia National Park(Which is only a mile or two away). Close to everything downtown and owners who made sure to give you your space but still close enough that if you had issues they could respond quickly. The kitchen was well stocked with dishes and silverware. The fridge was as nice as you'd find in your own home and a nice dishwasher made cleanup after meals a breeze. We stayed in one of the two upstairs bedrooms and were very pleased with how everything was layed out. Open the windows and let the ocean breeze put you to sleep! Bathroom was nice and the water pressure in the shower was great! Plenty of warm/hot water as well. Didn't watch much TV except in the AM to get the local weather forecast but it was a nice updated flat screen. Off street parking was nice too! A family of five would not feel crowded here. All in all one of the better VRBO places we've stayed. Thank You Marie and Kyle for a great week. Hopefully our travels will bring us back. Jim & Lisa

Conveniently located cottage in Bar Harbor

  • 5 of 5

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.

Great Summer Vacation Spot Close to Town

  • 5 of 5

The quaint, quiet cottage was a wonderful get away for our family of four. We enjoyed being so close to town but also being right next to Acadia. The owners were gracious host and we were sad to leave. Look forward to going back some day!
