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.


Great Week in Acadia

We enjoyed our week on MDI at the Pond House Inn. The owners are wonderful hosts! The property is quiet and private. Their home is beautiful and well stocked. We are looking forward to visiting again!

Amazing retreat

The owners are incredibly welcoming and go out of their way to make you comfortable but they are also unobtrusive. This property is absolute paradise - beautiful, spacious, incredibly quiet, elegant but comfortable. We look forward to returning!

Idyllic Family Vacation

We've been coming up to MDI for 30 years and have rented many a wonderful home. Pond House Inn tops the list! Beautiful setting and comfortable home. The pool, kayaks and bocce court were thoroughly enjoyed by all after a day of hiking. Thank you to the owners for sharing your home.

Wonderful Stay

Our extended family of 7 had a wonderful stay at the Pond House Inn. The property is absolutely lovely and has all the amenities you could want and more. We took the kayaks out on the pond daily, and used the fire pit, grill and bocce court almost every night! The treehouse was a huge hit with our nephew and the house itself had ample space for all of us. The homeowners were very friendly and on-site for any questions we had. The property is in a perfect location, it feels like a remote escape, but is an easy drive to Acadia, Bar Harbor and everything else we wanted to explore. July 2020.

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.

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.

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.
