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!

Great place right in the town of Bar Harbor

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed here for 3 nights from Fri 29th September. The instructions for how to find the house and get the key were easily followed.

It was clean, tidy and comfortable. We loved the place. The kitchen is beautiful and well equipped. The laundry facilities were excellent. Susan was very quick to respond to any queries we had.

The house is very convenient to the town - handy to be able to leave the car parked and take the bus from the village green into the national park for long walks. We were very fortunate with the weather 25 -30 degrees C, bright blue skies and sunshine, and we walked all over the town, enjoyed the shore path walk, all the usual touristy things.

Our favourite part of Acadia was Sand beach: it was like a summer day when we were there but without the summer crowds.

We can certainly recommend Susan''s house if you're looking for somewhere quiet yet convenient to the town centre.

It was a great place to stay. It was nicely decorated and very roomy. Great location for easy walking into town and able to catch the buses to go to Acadia National Park for hiking.

Would definitely recommend.

Great Location for a Bar Harbor/MDI Getaway!

  • 5 of 5

Well maintained property for a couple or small family in an excellent Bar Harbor location. Just a couple of blocks away from the shops and restaurants in town. The unit has everything you need and we appreciated the well-stocked supplies in the kitchen! Susan was very helpful and was quick to respond to a few questions we had before our arrival and during our stay.
