"I can't say enough good things about this house. This is our 5th VRBO and one of the best. Communication with Sean was easy, fast, and accurate. He's very helpful and knows a lot about the area. He always got back to me right away with any questions and checked in on us to be sure we had everything we needed.
Location: AWESOME. Walking distance to all things! We walked to the grocery store, walked to breakfast, dinner, shopping. We could have walked to the shuttles, but we're sunrise people so didn't do that.
Kitchen: Fully stocked and well kept. We didn't end up cooking much (so much to do!), but easily could have. Everything was very clean. It's a small thing, but I liked having water in the fridge door. We refill water bottles a lot, so that was very helpful.
Sleeping: We were 4 people, two couples. My folks (in their 60's) had the master bedroom/bathroom upstairs and had plenty of space to spread out. We took the loft off the living room. The pictures don't do it justice. The bed is very comfortable, the room below had plenty of space for our stuff. The house is very quiet so we didn't hear each other. I was concerned about this a little since the master seating area overlooks the kitchen and our doors lead to the living room, but there was no issue at all. I also never heard the person on the first floor. I know they were there, but couldn't hear a thing.
Hanging out: The kitchen table is big and a natural gathering place. The size of the kitchen makes this an easy thing to accommodate so we could be making breakfast and hanging out together. The sofas in the living room are very, very comfortable. The entryway was great for taking off rainy shoes and jackets before heading upstairs. Unfortunately the weather didn't allow for sitting on the deck, but it looked like a great spot!
Only semi-downside is that there is only one parking space off-street. When we arrived on a Saturday night, there wasn't much street parking so our second car just blocked the driveway (after we parked in it). That was the only day we had any problem finding street parking right at the house. Not an issue, just something to know.
If you're looking at staying in Bar Harbor with a few people, this is a great choice. We would stay here again in a heartbeat!"
