activities and attractions in Bar Harbor Maine

We are 12 minutes from Bar Harbor (8 miles) with its shopping and
restaurants and 10 minutes to Acadia National Park, with plenty of
bike trails and hiking.
The Bar Harbor and Mt Desert area is a wonderful place to vacation
with its rock-bound coast and soaring granite cliffs. From the
stonewall-lined and tree-covered road leading you into our village,
to the sweeping vistas from atop Cadillac Mountain, there is a
special mystique to Bar Harbor. Nestled on the east side of Mt.
Desert Island, surrounded by Acadia National Park, we have welcomed
visitors for over a hundred years. Bar Harbor and Acadia National
Park have a wide variety of offerings for visitors. There truly is
something for everyone.
We offer a wide array of activities from the most relaxed to the
most rigorous, dining for all tastes and budgets and shopping in our
unique shops and galleries. Be sure to plan enough time to enjoy our
area and consider using us as a base of operations to see all of
Downeast Maine. We are only a short distance to other famous
attractions such as Campobello Island, Franklin Roosevelt's summer
home, the Schoodic Peninsula, the mainland part of Acadia National
Park, and other islands, coastal attractions and nature based
attractions. Once the summer playground of wealthy and famous
Americans, Bar Harbor was celebrated throughout the world as a
quiet, beautiful resort village, worlds away from the hustle and
bustle of New York, Boston, and Paris. Today, the "summer people"
still come to our island paradise, but many visitors also arrive for
the brilliant fall foliage. And more and more, people are coming to
experience our winter wonderland and the surprises of spring.

traveler reviews for this bar harbor house rental

Comfy and Beautiful

Review submitted: October 29, 2013   Date of arrival: April 27, 2013

I wanted to send you a note letting you know how much we enjoyed our stay in the house in Maine. It was very comfy and beautiful. The house was very well equipped and we had fun cooking there. My mother wanted me to convey to you that she especially appreciated the quality of the stuff in the house. The décor is nice and simple and pretty and, for example, the pots are good quality. That's often not the case in rentals, and it makes for a very pleasant stay! Also, it was plenty warm. The fireplace was a plus, lots of atmosphere. The view out to the water was great, especially at sunset. Brenda was great to work with and suggested great restaurants. We will definitely be back!

Recommended for: adventure seekers, age 55+, families with young children, families with teenagers, girls getaway, pet-friendly, sight seeing, romantic getaway

Great home and view

Review submitted: November 3, 2010   Date of arrival: September 25, 2010

We enjoyed our stay in the Post and Beam so much that we asked for an additional day and were delighted when the answer was yes. The location was super and the view out to the water perfect. We suggest using the adirondack chairs out on the yard and watching the sunset over the water. Susan and Ray
