About this area:

Bar Harbor's village and surrounding rural residential areas are a popular destination for visitors to Acadia National Park. The town center offers diverse shops, restaurants and activities. Acadia National Park's Hulls Cove entrance, as well as other major entrances, are located just outside the village center. Not all properties listed as 'Bar Harbor' are actually in the village of Bar Harbor, since the town of Bar Harbor encompasses the northern half of Mt. Desert Island, most of which is quite rural in nature. However, homes within this area are usually between five and fifteen minutes' drive to the village center.


Wonderful Location

Our family had a wonderful vacation. The house was so centrally located to both Acadia and Bar Harbor. We were so happy to not have to find parking in Bar Harbor, but could walk to restaurants, bike rental and ice cream!!

Paul Cottage

My husband and I had an enjoyable stay. Of course for 2 people there was plenty of space! All in all it is a comfortable home. For us the highlight is the location of this cottage. It is in the heart of Bar Harbor but you wouldn't know it. That's because it is located on a square that is connected to a side gets very little traffic and includes off street parking. After a day of driving around to see the sights and hiking in Acadia it is nice to be able to park our car in the evening at the cottage and then walk into town for a meal and to look at the shops. Always a delight.

Great rental

We loved our time at Paul Cottage. It was such an easy walk into town. Our kids loved that we could be in downtown Bar Harbor in a matter of minutes. The space was comfortable and clean. We would definitely stay again.

The Paul Cottage was the ideal place for our family. With two young kids, we especially appreciated the short walk to dinner, shopping, and the harbor. The home itself was exceptionally clean and well-appointed, but not too precious (see: two young kids above). The Knowles Company was fantastic to work with - prompt and thorough. We will be back!

Exactly what we expected based on both the pictures and discussion with Lynn. No surprises. We were happy that this was a very clean house, everything was functional and it was well stocked. It is an older, smaller, no-frills house, which we knew that going into it and it exactly met our needs for the right price as we were there basically to sleep each night and were out almost all day every day. We would def keep renting this unit.. till our kids get older and we feel comfortable getting a place near water!

Family Vacation

We are a family of 6. We enjoyed that the home is in town as it allowed us walk to the grocery store, Bar Island beach area, shopping, and restaurants. I liked the age of the home and my imagined history that went along with it. We would stay here again!

Great house. Accommodations were perfect for us and a fantastic location. A couple blocks from main street, the grocery store, and best of all - Bar Island Beach area! Older house but has charm. Would definitely stay here again!
