Overview

About the property

Nonsmoking, Immaculate 2 bedroom , 1 queen, 1 twin-trundle, and sleeper sofa

This charming, immaculate, and nonsmoking older home's interior was newly renovated in 2014. Located on a quiet side street in a family neighborhood in downtown Bar Harbor. It has an open floor plan & hard wood floors throughout. All new appliances. There are 2 bedrooms - 1 has a queen, - 1 has a twin-trundle, plus a queen sleeper sofa in living room. A port-a-crib is available. The walls are hung with original paintings of Mount Desert Island, and Acadia National Park. Full laundry, wi-fi, cable tv, and a pleasant yard to share complete the package. While the apartment comfortably holds 6, ideally this home is best suited for a small family - 2 parents and kids. The trundle bed is not to be used by anyone weighing more than 100 lbs.

We are situated in the southeastern end of town, and are a few minutes walk to The Village Green, and the Island Explorer bus hub (runs from Jun-Oct) , Mount Desert Island Hospital, The Abbe Museum, Jesup Memorial Library, St. Saviour's Church and its' Tiffany stained glass windows, Reel Pizza, and all the shops and restaurants. Town Pier, Agamont Park, Albert Meadow, the YMCA, Compass Harbor, the Jackson Lab, and the majestic views of the Porcupine Islands are all within a 5-10 minute walk.

We are also within walking distance to the Village Connector trails into Acadia. Compass Harbor and the ruins of George Dorr's family home are just a few blocks south. The Schooner Head Path is accessed off the Compass Harbor Trail. The Great Meadow Loop is accessed off Cromwell Harbor Road, just north of the ball fields. It connects to Jesup Path, Dorr Mountain, Homans Path, Kebo Connector Trails, and much more.

For winter visitors - Acadia National Park is a winter wonder-land! Hiking (crampons a must), Nordic Skiing on groomed trails in the park, snow-shoeing, skating, ice-fishing, & sledding are all in the mix. Winter night skies are hypnotizing. We have the darkest skies east of the Mississippi. If you are interested in astronomy and star-gazing - ANP is your place!. MDI & ANP are under appreciated in winter! Do yourself a favor and come to this magical frozen place!

Great location

  • 5 of 5

We had a great stay, and especially loved the proximity of the house to town and the Shore Path. The house was very clean, well appointed, and comfortable. Although it was close to town, it was very quiet and peaceful. We loved getting a nice breeze through all of the windows. Thanks so much, Susan!

Susan's home was the perfect vacation home for our family in Bar Harbor!!!

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic week in Bar Harbor and Acadia! Susan's home is the perfect location for a small family looking to be close to town but still on a quiet street. It was super clean and had all the comforts of home. The home is also super close to Acadia National Park! We would absolutely return for another vacation!!! We loved our time and Susan was an amazing owner to work with!! I would definitely recommend this home to a small family:)! We vacationed for a week with our 7 and 5 year old boys and it was perfect!!

Fantastic stay - lovely home in fabulous location!

  • 5 of 5

Thoroughly enjoyed our stay! We moved in for a long weekend and felt very much at home in this comfortable very functional home. The apartment is well equipped with everything you need and the location is perfect. Close to so many great restaurants and shops and of course Acadia National Park, but tucked away on a quiet side street. We hiked each day, enjoyed walks downtown and to the waterfront, and tried out many of the areas great restaurants. Perfect vacation for our family of 4 - we look forward to returning next year!

Great location! Everything is within walking distance.

Susan is a wonderful host and the house is lovely. Very clean and well supplied. We had a great time walking the Shore Path, around town and to dinner each night. The house was perfect for cooking breakfast each morning before our adventures​ in Acadia.
