This house was a perfect location! Just one minute from the door to Main Street where all the restaurants and shops are located.
The house itself was great. Plenty of room. We have 5 children and we could have easily fit a few more people in the house. So glad we found this house. Dee Dee and Scott answered any and all questions and weregreat to work with.
This was an excellent stay for us, 6 adults and a 7yo. So convenient to all that Bar Harbor and Acadia have to offer. 5 minute walk to the Town Green with free shuttles to every part of Acadia and nearby communities. We took the Bicycle Express (also free) to the Carriage Paths, and a 10 minute shuttle ride to a nature boat tour. It is a 8-10 minute walk to the Shore Path where our grandson loved exploring the tidal pools. The house is like new, equipped with everything we needed. The kitchen especially was very well equipped and we did a fair amount of cooking. There were plenty of toys and games including dolls and cars and trucks and blocks. There is a lovely new patio with privacy fence in back. There are TVs in every room with Cable access and the wifi is very fast. It was an added convenience to have the new large capacity washer and dryer (and if we are able to return I'll bring 2/3 less clothing!) Dee Dee, Scott and Ginny are delightful hosts--attentive but not at all intrusive, and responsive to our questions about the area. The location is at the end of the residential area extending from the center of BH and the quiet street was perfect for our grandson to practice his bike riding. If we return to BH we will definitely bring friends and family and stay with Dee Dee, Scott and Ginny.
PS there are small, quiet air conditioners in each bedroom..
The location couldn't be better....this home is tucked down a quiet street a short walk from restaurants, shops, and the waterfront. Just park the car and walk everywhere! This is a wonderful home with plenty of room. The bedrooms are roomy with very comfortable beds and the main living area easily accommodates a group. DeeDee and Scott were very hospitable, we felt just like family! We couldn't have been more satisfied with this fabulous home and would not hesitate to stay here again!
DeeDee and Scott were outstanding hosts, they made our stay a special memory for all of us. They accommodated our every request. They were helpful in coaching us on the best way to enjoy the town, the parade, other city activities and the 4th of July fireworks. They made us feel like locals. They were generous and also communicated with us frequently about what we might need.
There was plenty of space for 10 people to relax and enjoy each other whether it was playing games, chatting in the living room or in the backyard. The location was ideal, one block from downtown but still a quiet street. It was close to the bus that takes you all over MDI for free. We found a favorite place to eat, Side Street Cafe is a fun spot.
New towels, quilts, sheets and the newly remodeled house was clean and comfortable. We felt like it was home. There was a useful table or chair in all the right places. The house was uncluttered but decorated in a homey way. There was comfortable beds with A/C in each room. The BBQ and back table were fun to use. The house had every convenience of home including everything necessary for making home made pies. We appreciated the cooler she left for our use and the water bottles in the refrigerator were an unexpected treat.
We all are looking forward to seeing Dee Dee and Scott again and their comfortable house. Thank you for the memories!!
We are all in agreement: Don, June, Sally, Joel, Kimo, Leanne, Emily, Chad, Ellen and Steph
Great location although the views of both the front and backyard can be better (not too significant). Very short walks to a couple of places for great breakfast and a drink at night and to the beginning of the Shore Path that leads to the main downtown area. Nothing to complaint about the layout or amenities provided by the owner including a brand new set of front loaded washer and dryer. Great coffee ground provided by the owner but be prepared to bring your own or go shopping at the nearby supermarket for other cooking related things you need such as salt, sugar, cooking oil, etc.
The owner is very pleasant and prompt to deal with and is also very accommodating for anything you need such as providing a brand new fire pit for our enjoyment when we asked for it prior to our arrival. Speaking of fire pit, our group of twelve were out back one evening doing s'mores over the fire and singing with a guitar, maybe a bit loud, but then abruptly halted and interrupted by a nasty neighbor lady threatening to call the cop without any warning. It was merely 9:15pm on a monday night .... There went our evening entertainment with the fire pit that we so looked forward to.
There were also plenty of electronics toys for everyone including an X-box, good Wi-fi, and a flat screen TV in each bedroom and in the main living area.
I would recommend the place for its amenities and convenient location to town but do not think that you will have a "view" with this place. The view is 5 minutes away on foot at the Shore walk!
