Why Kelly Corson chose Bar Harbor

We fell in love with the property because of it's great location in town. We were also excited to put all of our own creative remodeling ideas to work. When we vacation we enjoy renting vacation homes that are central and walking distance to many of what the location has to offer. This property doesn't disappoint on it's great neighborhood and location.

Great home base for a week in Bar Harbor

  • 4 of 5

We stayed here for one week on our anniversary trip in Bar Harbor. It was a perfect home base - close enough to town that you can easily walk to everything and therefore not have to navigate the busy streets to find a parking spot! The kitchen is well equipped, making it easy to enjoy a meal or two at home. We would definitely stay here again if we return to Bar Harbor!

Perfect little home away from home

  • 4 of 5

Great cottage, well situated in Bar Harbor on a quiet dead end street. The cottage worked out well for the two of us for three nights. It is close to the park entrance and you can walk to restaurants and grocery store. The kitchen is so well stocked we even made a lobster dinner!

Nous avons passé 3 nuits lors d’un long week-end. Très accueillant, confortable et propre. Près de l’entree du parc et de la Main Street.

Les communications étaient précises.

Merci pour ce merveilleux WE 😉

Great location!

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay. The apartment was as pictured, clean and cute. It was wonderful to come back to our own place in the evenings and not a hotel. The location was perfect, just a few minutes to walk to shopping, restaurants and fun. My only regret was Travelin Lobster was already closed for the season, maybe next trip. As stated by others, a 5 minute easy drive to Arcadia. Thanks for allowing us to stay, we have already recommended it to friends!

Everything was perfect so we had no need to contact Kelly.
