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.


Fabulous Stay!

We had a fabulous stay at Sea glass cottage, perfect location to Downtown Bar Harbor. The Annex perfect too. Host family Betty and Jim - we appreciated the welcome gift of sour dough bread! Thank so much!

Wonderful Family Vaca

Just wanted to state that we had a wonderful time at the Seaglass House! It really was one of the nicest rentals we have used over the years! Very charming and the location was perfect! The driveway was long enough to fit 2 vehicles (no hassle with on-street parking is a BIG plus).

Relaxing, Wonderful Cottage

Lovely home, quiet street with easy access to town and Acadia. Walkable to the grocery store or restaurants. We also felt the beds were somewhat uncomfortable. The living room was comfortable enough and we brought a streaming device to stream Netflix on the television. The annex is adorable and allowed the girls some space. The kitchen was well stocked with appropriate cooking utensils for meals at home. Finally, this cottage was incredibly clean and felt very welcoming! I would highly recommend this property!!

Beautiful home


We loved Seaglass Cottage. It was on a cute street within walking distance to everything we needed including the grocery store. The house was exactly as described in the photos and one of the most well equipped homes of any of the vacation homes we have stayed. I'm giving it 4 stars because at the very least the beds need mattress toppers, the living room furniture was not comfortable, and we would have loved a smart TV for the teens who wanted Netflix access on our one rainy/cold day. Otherwise, everything was great!

From The Knowles Company: Thanks for your suggestions regarding mattress toppers and a smart TV. Sorry the living room furniture wasn't to your preference. We have passed along your recommendations to the homeowners!

We had a wonderful week at Seaglass Cottage. When we arrived the house was immaculate and beautifully decorated. There were nice extras in the home - cookies on the fully stocked coffee bar, handmade soaps in the bathroom and home made scones which were delicious! The home is stocked with everything you could possibly need for a comfortable vacation. The location was great for walking to the downtown area which our dogs enjoyed. Easy access to the back yard for the dogs as well. All of us - 2 legged and 4 legged had a fantastic vacation at Seaglass Cottage!

Perfect fit

My family had a wonderful stay at Seaglass cottage. It is so convenient to town but still so quiet. It is walking distance to the grocery and several really nice outings, including Bar Island and the Shore Path. Loved this house and want to return!

Wonderful House

We had such a fun week in this beautiful house. It was very clean and had everything we needed. My teen aged son loved staying in his own "apartment" (garage bedroom) and the house is close to everything in Bar Harbor that we love. I miss it already! Kudos to the owners and the cleaning crew for creating a retreat for families.

Many thanks to Lynn for recommending the Seaglass Cottage to us. It was perfect for us! We loved the proximity to town, but quiet neighborhood. We could bike or hike into the park. The house itself was very nicely furnished with comfortable beds, a great shower, so many beautiful things - we felt like we were truly staying in a high end home, not a rental property. The separate guest quarters worked out perfectly for our teenage son - he loved having his own space. The thoughtful touches from the homeowner did not go unnoticed - plenty of supplies, great selection of teas, and we loved the blueberry coffee cake! We would definitely love to stay there again.

We absolutely loved our stay in Seaglass Cottage.


It was cozy and felt like home as soon as we walked in. Our daughter enjoyed staying in the extra room in the converted garage. It gave her privacy and a space to call her own. The cottage is located on a quiet side street within walking distance of the restaurants and shops in downtown Bar Harbor. Would love to stay there again!

Perfect stay


Had a wonderful week at sea glass cottage. Lovely spacious house, well equipped and comfortable. We hiked Acadia every day. Quiet and beautiful. Drank in the sunrise every morning with my dog down at Bar Island beach. Would definitely stay here again.

Easy to work with. Quick response. Everything was perfect.


Perfect! Everything about this house was perfect. The size, the perfect number of windows to keep it bright, the absolute cleanliness, the walking distance to town, close to trails in any direction, great shower, beautiful separate bedroom, great kitchen, fenced yard for dog. Cannot wait to come back some day.

Family Vacation

Clearly this house is loved...filled with charm and special furnishings. Perfect location: on a quiet street but a 5 minute walk to downtown Bar Harbor. The "Annex" was great for our teenage son. Kitchen extremely well appointed, comfortable beds, great shower.

Family vacation

Great house near downtown Bar Harbor. Quiet residential area but only a walk away to everything. Well appointed and comfortable.

We thoroughly enjoyed our time at Seaglass Cottage. The location that couldn’t be any better. We were very close to shopping and restaurants in downtown Bar Harbor, however we were located on a side street that was quiet. Also, right around the corner was a grocery store, so we were able to quickly pick up anything we needed. The cottage was a perfect home for this vacation. The owners have clearly paid attention and made sure that the house had lots of comfortable furnishings. The annex bedroom is a lovely addition as it allows for some separation for extended family vacationing together. All of the common areas are large with multiple seating arrangements so people can enjoy conversation or games during the evening time. The laundry in the basement as well as the grill on the back porch are also welcome and convenient additions to make the cottage a true home away from home. Finally, the cottage is absolutely beautiful. We loved all of the decorations throughout the cottage.
