Why Erica Merchant chose Bar Harbor - Mount Desert Island

Our property offers a unique design for additional privacy if traveling with friends, in-laws or older children that may want to have their own space, yet close enough that they are connected by your deck. Northeast Harbor is a tiny village on Mount Desert Island that caters mainly to tourist and summer residents and million dollar homes on the ocean.

Best. Vacation. Ever.

  • 5 of 5

You know it was a good time, when you return home exhausted from all the fun! The house was perfect for our family (5 adults and 2 kids) and Northeast Harbor was a wonderful home base. The house is a 30 second walk from some of the best donuts we've ever had (Colonel's) and just a short walk/run/ride to everything MDI has to offer. Erica was wonderful to work with and the house is adorable and provided everything we needed.

Lilac Lane is beautifully maintained and conveniently located. It's perfect for families.

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time at Lilac Lane! It was close to Bar Harbor and Acadia and the town of Northeast Harbor is charming. The owners were very helpful in preparing for our stay. This property is great for multiple families traveling together. We can't wait to come back!

Great place for a family and in laws exploring Acadia!

  • 4 of 5

My adult family of 5 loved this "main house + guest house" set up during our Acadia vacation. Although it felt like everything was a 25-30min drive (I expected trailheads and grocery stores and Bar Harbor to be a little closer), I would still say this was a great spot and would highly recommend it to multiple couples traveling together. Turns out the park is just more spread out than we realized-not a huge deal, just have that in mind. We loved that it was just a 3minute walk to a marina and to some local restaurants. The area was pretty quiet which made the outdoor deck and grill a great spot to sit and enjoy relaxing after a hike or fun spot to cook dinner. The place appeared very well kept and the owners left a big binder full of restaurant and "things to do" recommendations which we found very helpful. Overall, we truly enjoyed or stay and would recommend this place in a heartbeat to anyone.

Owner's Response: I am so grateful your family had such a wonderful time and for the great review! I do recommend to every guests prior to check-in that it is best to stop in Ellsworth for groceries, as the Bar Harbor Hannaford is a bit far (15 -20 min) just for groceries and very crowded. Although we also have a great grocery store right here in Northeast Harbor, it tends to be a bit pricey. I am not sure what you meant about trail heads being 25 minutes away, as some of the best park hikes are just a mile and a half up the road and many, many other most popular ones within 3-8 miles. Acadia comprises the entire island which is 108 square miles, as well as other areas.
