Great place!!

  • 5 of 5

The place is exactly as shown on Home Away. It is cozy and clean and so close to town. We loved our stay and Kelly made the check-in and out so easy. I can't wait to return!

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.

Good location, WiFi and comfort—great choice!

  • 5 of 5

Great location—very easy to get in and out of Acadia NP, whether we were headed for the loop road, Cadillac Mountain or the less-crowded trailheads near NE or SW Harbors. Walked to Bar Island and Hannaford’s Grocery from the house. At-the-door parking a big plus. House was clean, modern and comfortable. Great shower! Having a full-sized refrigerator with freezer and full-sized W/D + oven in a fully-equipped kitchen made self-catering (which we love after full days at the park) so easy. Owner responds quickly to text and emailed questions. Definitely recommend for a couple!

Cute apartment, tastefully furnished, very clean, great location.

  • 5 of 5

This small apartment is nicer than in the pictures! Tastefully decorated. Very clean. Perfect for two people. It had everything we needed. Fully furnished kitchen. We appreciated extras like the washer/dryer, hair dryer and even a night light that other VRBO rentals have not provided. We loved the location on a quiet dead-end side street - with no traffic - in otherwise busy Bar Harbor. It felt very quiet and serene. Walking distance (10-15 minutes) to numerous nice restaurants as well as shopping.

Nice place, great location for downtown and the park

  • 4 of 5

I would recommend this place and even come again if I come back to the area. Just the right size for two people and loved having the washer and dryer. We didn't need anything that wasn't supplied/furnished and loved the location in relation to shopping, eating and of course the park. Small but cozy and the bed was comfortable.

Great location, comfortable and clean!

  • 5 of 5

Spent three nights in this cute apartment in Bar Harbor, and we were very pleased. We walked to everything in town. Rented bikes and rode them into Acadia from the apartment. A nice grocery store is just a few blocks away, too. The apartment does have some basics like coffee filters, coffee, salt and pepper. If you are like us and prefer bar soap in the shower, you might want to bring one or pick up in the grocery store when you arrive. We would stay here again and highly recommend it!

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.
