Great for families!

  • 4 of 5

This house is conveniently located in Bar Harbor and is a great house for families with small children. It easily accommodated my family of 5 and my brother's family of 4, which in total includes 5 kids between the ages of 1 and 8. The house is equipped with many games, toys, and DVDs that helped entertain the kids when we weren't out exploring the area. The house is conveniently located just a few blocks from the water and within walking distance of the many restaurants, shops, etc. in beautiful Bar Harbor...plus there is a large grocery store less than a block away. It's also just a short drive to Acadia National Park, making it an ideal launching point for all that Mt. Desert Island has to offer. The house sits at the end of a quiet street and has a great, fenced in outdoor patio that features a gas grill and a sandbox for the kids, which we enjoyed during our week long stay in late July. We loved our time in Bar Harbor and can't wait to come back and would definitely consider staying here again.

Beautiful home, perfect location!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I spent a wonderful week at spindrift cottage this August. The house was large enough to accommodate our party of 9 (6 adults, 3 children) without ever feeling cramped. The beds were comfortable, house was clean, and the outside area was perfect for drinks while the kids played in the sandbox. Sherri was very helpful and made sure the air was on and ready to go for us for our later-than-anticipated arrival. She was very responsive and even came to pick the trash up for us mid-week when it got a little too full. We had a wonderful time and will stay here again if/when we get back to Bar Harbor!

A lovely home, close to town but away from crowds. Owner was very helpful with info about area

  • 5 of 5

The home was great and fit our family of 7 perfectly. We were a family of 4 adults and three 17 year olds. It is located an easy walk to downtown but on a quiet street away from all the people. We were able to cook and eat at home or enjoy the many restaurants in Bar Harbor. Sherri was especially helpful with advice on all the hiking available in the area.

I would highly recommend this house. The house occupies 3 stories, so people must be able to climb some stairs.

Spindrift Cottage is our home away from home.

  • 5 of 5

This is our second visit to Spindrift Cottage in the quaint little town of Bar Harbor, ME. Location, location, location, is what they say about realty. Well this is the truth with this rental. It is nestled on a quite dead end street right in the heart of downtown BH. Walking distance to shopping, the sand bar, village greens, Agamont Park, and all restaurants.

The house is huge! Our family loves the fact that there is so much room with much privacy if wanted or needed. Fully furnished with all the standard amenities that you’d expect. Washer/Dryer, dishwasher, blender, and even a lobster pot to boot! We enjoyed many of nights grilling on the back patio and also had many family meals in the formal dining room. Movie night was also enjoyed on the large L shaped couch that fit the whole family in comfort. This was our “command center” where we would start our day and make plans to hit many of the beautiful attractions that Mt. Desert island had to offer. We throughly enjoy taking the island explorer bus to Echo lake for a swim. Also, bike rentals on Cottage St is a 5 minute walk. Hitting the carriage trails and riding to Jordan House is always a blast! Blueberry pancakes at Jordan’s Restaurant (2 min. walk) is a tradition.

The owner Sherri is a top notch host. Make sure to call once crossing over the bridge onto the island. She will make sure that you are greeted and help answer any questions you may have. During our stay she made multiple check ins to ensure we were enjoying ourselves and were well. We look forward to our 2019 stay and were sad when we had to say goodbye to Spindrift Cottage and the beautiful island that we have many fond memories to share.

Thank you Sherri for opening your home to us and being such a wonderful host.

Your friends and guests,

The Perron Family

Spindrift was perfect for us

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time in this lovely house and the location was perfect. There were 6 adults in our group and plenty of room for everyone. The kitchen had everything we needed. The grocery store was very close. We were able to walk to everywhere we wanted to go in Bar Harbor. The owner was very accommodating.

Enjoy a morning jog on the Shore Path along the ocean's edge. Be warmly greeted at the friendly coffee shops and bakeries.

Everything is nearby and easily accessible, including the grocery store, the hospital, the library.
