Recent Bar Harbor reviews


    "The pictures do not completely capture the beauty of this cottage! The grounds and cottage are meticulously maintained and so welcoming. We have been staying here since 2014 and look forward to catching up with the owners every year. It truly is a HOME AWAY FROM HOME!!! The property is close to downtown Bar Harbor and an Acadia National Park entrance. In fact there is a trail from the property to the park if one should choose that route. There is plenty of parking for guests and an overhang roof that protects a motorcycle or bikes if you bring them. It is so quiet and peaceful and there is lawn furniture to relax and listen to nature. You forget how close you are to the rest of the world. The cottage has 2 comfortable bedrooms, fully stocked kitchen (you will find anything you need) the bathroom comes with towels, blowdryer, soap and shampoo. They also have made a washer and dryer available should anyone need that. It is very clean and extremely well maintained not to mention uniquely decorated. The open concept of kitchen, dining and living room with large windows and skylights is delightful. Our dog loves to just look out the windows when she is not enjoying hiking in Acadia or exploring the property. The owners Philip and Astri are very friendly yet respectful of your privacy. They go beyond other owners we have encountered on our travels to Mount Desert/Acadia to ensure your stay at their property is satisfactory for you. They have many books to read, DVD's to watch and games to play. We have had family members visit and they still talk about what a great cottage and spot we had discovered. The only negative is when we pack up to leave. Last year our dog refused to get into the car once we had packed up so we were not the only ones sad to leave. Thank you so much Philip and Astri for sharing such a beautiful cottage with us. It is always a pleasure. Renee, Wayne and Rosie"

  • Lots of Space in a Quiet Location

    "Overall had a nice experience at Deer Cottage. The home is a great size for 6-8. Quiet location just off of Hwy 3. A short drive into town and the park. Large deck with a great yard. Large bedrooms. Kitchen had plenty of dishes and utensils. Lots of space to eat at the island or the table. Laundry in the basement was convenient. Be aware there is no AC which was fine for us and our stay but could be an issue for some. Few things that really could use some improvement. The lighting in the house is dim. Low wattage florescent bulbs everywhere. Hard to see in the bedrooms and bathrooms. As someone else mentioned the mirrors and light fixtures are mounted extremely low. I'm just average height and knocked my head on the bathroom light fixture multiple times leaning over the sink while brushing my teeth. Was also surprised to find only 2 1/2 rolls of toilet paper, 1 roll of paper towels and three trash bags provided at check in. For a large home that easily accommodates eight the property wasn't supplied well. Make sure you bring everything. Finally considering there is a cleaning fee built in to the price you are expected to do a lot of your own cleaning on checkout including washing and putting away all dishes, taking out the trash, stripping beds, starting laundry and sweeping the floors. This is all spelled out in detail in the handbook in the kitchen. I didn't expect daily maid service but I also expected to not have to do half the cleaning on check out."
