“Cozy spot to stay while exploring Acadia National Park.”
Reviewed 14 July 2017 for a stay in June 2017

Perfect for two on the "Quiet Side" of the Island. The Barn was our comfortable home-away-from-home for exploring Acadia Nat'l Park & Mt. Desert Island. We found it just as described. Our host, Susie, was welcoming, friendly and helpful when we needed it. Fully equipped with everything we needed for cooking, grilling, and relaxing after hiking.
Happily, the weather was gorgeous so we didn't spend a great deal of time indoors! When it became unusually warm we were glad it was near Echo Lake Beach. Bass Harbor Head Lighthouse is very near.
We loved the views of the water from the large window and even watched an eagle pair feasting on shore at low tide one evening. Susie recommended Thurston's Lobster Shack when we were looking for a nearby spot for dinner and we enjoyed it so much that we returned a second time.
We left hoping that we'll have a chance to return to The Barn in the future!

“Exceeded Our Expectations”

This wonderful place had all the amenities you could think of. The owner went into great detail to assure this. Comfortable, immaculate, private, great location and definitely on the quiet side of the harbor. Great restaurants nearby, Acadia for hiking or walks close by.

“Great Stay”

My girlfriend and I were looking for a rental property for our trip to Maine in August. Everywhere we looked either had 2-3 bedrooms or required a full week stay. Then we came across the "The Barn". We spent 4 nights there in August. One of the owners met us and walked us through the property upon our arrival. Everything about the interior of "The Barn" was great. A binder is provided that contains some of the house rules as well as helpful information on Acadia and local restaurants (menu's included). It is very well maintained and has everything you could possibly need. We took advantage of the kitchen during our stay. The bed was comfortable that we had no trouble sleeping. There is a skylight right above the bed, so you can stare up at the stairs on a clear night. There is more than enough room to accommodate 2 individuals. A water cooler is also in the kitchen if you preferred that to tap. "The Barn" was the perfect place to come "home" to after a day of hiking at Acadia. The only issue we had was mosquitoes when we tried walking down by the water. Otherwise we thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would definitely look to stay here again in the future if in the area.

“Beautiful setting in cozy accommodation”
Reviewed 13 July 2016 for a stay in May 2016

Our hosts were pleasant & informative. The apartment is very tastefully decorated and well furnished. The location is perfect for a quiet getaway but is also convenient for exploring Acadia. Enjoyed our stay very much.
