About this area:

Bar Harbor's village is 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.

Pleasure vacation

This is such a special property, home is warm and inviting but large enough to have family members over for a special day. The grounds are spectacular and enjoy drinking my tea in the morning watching chipmunks playing and butterflies flying around the gardens. The best part are the wonderful fresh blueberries. The special part of this home are the Davidson's. This makes our 3rd year staying in their home and they make your time so special.

Hiking in Acadia

This is a spectacular home in the heart of Acadia. It is tucked into the woods, and the landscaping is beautiful. Lush green lawn with beautiful bushes and flowers. We loved the bocci ball court and played a couple games every night after returning from our hikes. The house is something out of a magazine. We loved all the special touches. The kitchen provides everything you need and the dining table is perfect for meals or jig saw puzzles. The TV hang out room is cozy with a large TV. There are beautiful pictures everywhere - some painted by the owner. The beautiful staircase leads up to 2 floors of bedrooms - each beautifully decorated. The master bath is especially beautiful - with a great shower and huge bathtub. We spent our days hiking the trails in Acadia. There are multiple trails within a 10-15 minute drive from the house. The trails on the other side of Acadia only take 20-25 minutes to get to - and the drive is worth it. Acadia is so beautiful.

We thoroughly enjoyed the Pond House Inn, which is an extraordinary property on the quiet side of the island, and is tucked away on a small pond. The house is top-end, nicely decorated and well-appointed. The grounds are exceptional and provide a welcoming experience for the vacationing family. We especially liked the beds and bedding, and the outdoor sitting areas which offer a fire pit, bocce court, and lake views. Owners are super-nice and available for any questions, we appreciated their hospitality.
