About The Owner

We love 'Ba Haba' - the magical place!

The Owner purchased this cottage in 2008

Why The Owner chose Bar Harbor - Mount Desert Island

We took our family camping in our VW Vanagon in Bar Harbor in 2007. It was our very first visit and it was love at first sight. In 2008, we purchased Blue Rose Cottage because we knew this would be a place we'd want to return to each year. We hope you feel the same way.

Guestbook comments from the owner

I first need to start by thanking you for making the Blue Rose Cottage available as a vacation rental. Unlike a hotel, we had all the comofts of home available to us and we truly enjoyed our time away. Bar Harbor was everything we expected and more. We still can't stop talking about the fun we had while hiking in Acadia Ntl. Park and all of the great food we were able to enjoy.

We spent our first full day exploring the down town area and just loved how easy it was to get around. Everything was so close, so we were able to walk to shops / restaurants and get the know the area. The rest of the week we tried to cram in as many hikes as possible in beautiful Acadia National Park. We couldn't believe all of the trails that were available, with options for every comfort level.

Can you believe we had access to a great kitchen and didn't cook a thing. (Does toasting bagels count?). Seriously, how could you expect us to cook with so many great restaurants available within walking distance? This was probably the first week in our lives that we ate only fish or seafood, every day for lunch and dinner. Loved it!

We truly enjoyed our time at the Blue Rose Cottage. Thank you again for opening up your home to us so we could explore a new area. We will definetly be back for a visit again in the future.

Cozy, well equipped, quiet but convenient location with great owners

  • 5 of 5

This is a very nicely equipped and well cared for property in Bar Harbor. The neighborhood is safe and quiet; but only a 5 minute walk and you're anywhere you want to be.

Normally we're in Bar Harbor with large groups and bigger homes with multiple baths. This time we were just two couples spending a long weekend and the one bathroom cottage worked fine for us. The master bedroom was spacious with a comfy bed. The second upstairs bedroom seemed spacious, but did require the couple to sleep in separate beds. We spent our evenings sitting around the fire pit in the inviting front yard; it was incredibly quiet and relaxing even with houses close by on either side.

Hong and Logan were great throughout the process. They were very communicative from the moment we booked and were incredibly responsive to a minor scheduling snafu we had upon our arrival.

The next time we return to Bar Harbor with a small group, we'll definitely stay at the Blue Rose Cottage.

Excellent choice!

  • 5 of 5

The house was in great condition and fully equipped with just about everything. It is perfectly located -- three short blocks from the center of Bar Harbor village but on a quiet residential side street. The house was just the right size for a family of four with two young-adult children, providing enough different rooms and sitting spaces to allow each person to do their own thing. Certainly, though, there were beds and rooms to accomodate at least two more people. The only limiting factor is the one bathroom/shower, but we found it entirely workable for four adults. We loved sitting on the benches out front -- over breakfast and then after dinner -- reading, watching people walk by, or around the fire in the small "fire bowl" set-up provided. Hong and Logan (who are either owners, managers, or who knows what?) responded to emails and phone messages with questions within 24 hours and sometimes withing an hour or two. We felt attended to from afar and had no concerns about where to turn should something have gone wrong -- but nothing did. We had a great week.

Great location!

  • 5 of 5

Quaint cottage with an amazing location! Leave your car in one of two parking spots and walk into town. Weather was perfect and we took advantage of fire pit and BBQ. Nicely appointed kitchen with a fun card table. Never met Hong or Logan, but only because never were we in need of a thing. Thanks!

Quaint cottage. Walking distance to everything. Great for our family of 5.

  • 5 of 5

A year ago we decided to make Maine our annual family vacation destination. Upon doing research, heard that Bar Harbor was the place to be. We have 3 teenage boys - all Boy Scouts - and we found plenty to please everyone in our family. Sea kayaking, biking and hiking Acadia, and various tours on land and sea. The town was cute and had plenty of shopping and walking and small town vibe to it. Gobs of restaurants to choose from. Didn't find a bad one. They were all good. Found the town to be incredibly friendly and inviting.

The cottage was a good size for us and close enough to town that allowed us to do things whenever we wanted and go back to the house to rest in between. The kitchen and eating area were very nicely sized. we were able to make breakfast every day. Plenty of dishes and cooking items. There were plenty of towels and having a washer / dryer in the house allowed us to do laundry whenever we needed. The couch was not big enough to seat all of us but there was plenty of room on the covered porch or in the kitchen to spread out.

We were sad to leave. The whole town and the cottage / in town experience was new for us. We have never rented a property through VRBO but it worked out perfectly.

The owner also sent us a very comprehensive email explaining all we needed to know to get to the property and suggestions for our stay. Also answered all questions very promptly. Clean property and comfortable beds.

Highly recommend if you are looking to stay in town in Bar Harbor.
