  • Great spot for a large group


    We had a total of nine people (which includes a 10 month baby). The House was charming on a quiet street locally within easy walking distance of downtown Bar Harbor, grocery store etc. We spent six nights.

    Best part of house other than location was open living spaces, porch etc. The kitchen is was fine, but nothing special. Bathrooms (at least three of the six) need serious upgrade.

    The side entrance is a bit awkward with the step up and step down that does not have a hand rail or adequate lightning, but is manageable once you are familiar with it.

    There was also a not of instruction on the heating units and they did not work in every room. The jets in the tub in one of the rooms also did not work.

    This was our first time in Acadia. I am sure we will be back. While I would certainly consider staying here again, now that I am familiar with the town, I would also look to see other large group options and available.

  • Great location


    Wonderful location for a large group. The hang out areas are big enough for our group of 8 adults and 2 kids. The washer and dryer should be functional for a group this large staying a week and for the cost.

  • Great Location nice place


    This was a typical older home in downtown. It has a full bathroom for every room, which was a nice bonus. Great location, full grocery store a block away, in fact the entire town is within walking distance. The kitchen is small, but fully equipped and no problem when we cooked for entire family. There is a back patio with a bbq grill and table that seats 6 or you could squeeze in 8, this is not currently pictured. There is room for 4 cars in the driveway, which is another good bonus. We could have used a few fans as a couple of the nights it got hot and there is no air conditioning. It was reasonably clean, however the deck needed a good scrub and there were a few things that could of been a bit cleaner, however it was no problem at all. I would stay there again.

  • This was an excellent location and a nice Victorian Home.


    Overall nice place to stay. It was nice to have bathrooms in every bedroom and there were plenty of needed Kitchen Supplies and Bathroom necessities. Also was nice to have sheets and towels included.

    Entry to the house. Is on the side and not safe in my opinion. Outside lighting is poor and stone steps are not secure. Entry is by basement and is spooky looking. Entry to home should be through front door. Got locked out once as keyless entry would not work. Called owner and there is a lever on the inside of the door that must be horizontal to activate. Had to climb up outside stairs (supported by 2×4's) to gain access. The owner was very Good about answering and ensuring that we got in..Old decor inside needs updating. A few pictures had mold growing behind the glass. Mold in some of the bathrooms too. Refrigerator did not dispense water from the door, only ice. While we were aware that the house was older, we were disappointed in the condition.
