“Well appointed and cozy rental in the perfect location.”

My husband and two elementary school age children and I stayed in this cozy apartment/cottage right in the heart of Bar Harbor. We could walk to everything! It was a perfect location for heading into the park during the day (adventuring -- hiking, swimming, exploring tidepools, etc) then enjoying the excellent food, shopping and galleries of Bar Harbor in the evening. The home is very well appointed and clean. We used the kitchen to dine in for breakfast, pack picnic lunches and eat a couple of dinners. The grill outside and outdoor seating and garden were a great little bonus that allowed us to even enjoy exceptional dinners at the house.

“Wonderful”

This little jewel is indeed a "hidden treasure". Located within easy walking distance of everything in Bar Harbor, it comes equipped with everything you need to settle in and set up house (including a full kitchen with everything you might need to cook for yourselves) or, if you are inclined, you can dine out every meal at terrific restaurants all within walking distance. Everything still seems practically brand new from their full renovation a few years back and the interior design, special features and little details are masterfully worked out (down to the abundance of well placed electric outlets). There are two twin beds upstairs with an adjacent sitting room equipped with rocking chair and desk (at which I am writing this review) and ample closet space. Downstairs off the snug living room is a bedroom with full sized bed. Off the other end of the living room is the kitchen where the four of us enjoyed time around the kitchen table lit by sunlight streaming through the window from the lovely garden. There is a parking space provided for one car and we had no trouble finding on street parking nearby for the other car in our group. We did a lot of research before deciding on this spot for our vacation visit and we are very happy with our choice.

“Clean and convenient...”

The apartment is extremely neat and clean. The kitchen is well stocked with blender, many pots and pans, baking dishes and even some spices to cook with. Beds are comfortable. There is a nice loft area upstairs with a desk, games, books and magazines. There is a nice yard area with an outdoor grill, table and chairs. The many windows in the house provide a great deal of natural light. Full sized washer and dryer are provided and were much needed so that we could keep up with our laundry. Wifi service was excellent. The owners' house is attached and they are available if anything is needed but allow privacy also. When we left Sandy noticed our front tire was low and helped us put air into it.

The location of the apartment is great. It is only a five minute walk to downtown and a ten minute drive to Acadia. We went back for lunch most days. The apartment is in the back of the house, so it is very quiet.

Sandy was very quick with answering all emails/questions during the rental process and had our security deposit back to us in two days.

We couldn't have asked for a better lodging experience.

“A Gem in the perfect location!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 4, 2012 for a stay in July 2012

This is a lovely and clean apartment for a couple or small family with one or two children. W could walk everywhere in downton Bar Harbor (including to the village green just 2 blocks away to take free shuttle bus to Acadia National Park). My daughter especially loved the upstairs bedroom and den. The only downside might have been that the bathroom was a little narrow, but all the positives dwarf this one small negative.
