Classic Home w/ Great Front Porch & WiFi - Walk to Town/Acadia/Glen Mary Park!

The best of Mount Desert Island is at your fingertips at this comfortable home in Bar Harbor, where you'll be within easy walking distance of Glen Mary Park, the Village Green, an assortment of shops and restaurants in the heart of town, and the serene trails and landscapes of Acadia National Park.

Built in 1930, this home gives you a classic sense of Bar Harbor that's immediately apparent on the front porch, where you can come home from a day of hiking, kayaking, or cycling to relax in a rocking chair with a cold drink and a view of the surrounding neighborhood. Inside, you'll find a living room with a sofa, a loveseat, and a flatscreen TV, as well as a kitchen that's fully appointed with white appliances that include an electric stove and a dishwasher for easy clean-up. Use the gas grill to barbecue fresh Maine seafood each evening, and find comfortable space for four at the dining room table.

What's nearby:
This home is located in a quiet neighborhood of Bar Harbor, with Glen Mary Park and its children's wading pool a five-minute walk away.

Loved being able to walk to town and the Great Meadow Trail with our dogs. The beds were comfortable and WiFi/ TVs worked well.

My husband and I and our two young children stayed at the 48 cottage. It was clean, the kitchen had all of the kitchenware we needed, and the neighborhood was quiet. The bedrooms were plenty big and we added a pack n’ play for our youngest with plenty of room to spare. It was nice to have the covered front porch and the main floor laundry.

Clean, wonderful location! We`ve been going to Bar Harbor for years, and I have to say that I love this little neighborhood. It`s tucked away towards the back of the town, but still a very easy walk in to main shopping/dining area. We were able to walk from the house to Dorr Mountain via the Meadow Loop, and extend to Cadillac and back in under a 5 hours. Thank you!

This place suited our family well during our stay. The location is an easy walk or bike to the center of Bar Harbor and there is a great park for kids right around the corner. Having the fenced back yard for our dog was great. It is also very easy to get into Acadia Park from the house without having to go through the center of town. About the only negative we found was that the stairs are very creaky so if you have a child or people who are light sleepers that could be an issue. The lack of a full bathroom upstairs was OK for us but for more adults it could be an issue. Otherwise we found it a good place and our communications with the host were smooth and easy.

This house has a great location for easy access to the park and the town, was pet-friendly, and we would rent again!

My husband and I stayed in Bar Harbor for a week over our anniversary. We had a wonderful trip! The house was great. We especially loved the big kitchen and grill outside. We were able to walk to town every day which meant not having to find/pay for parking. Theres very limited parking in Bar Harbor. We can’t wait to come back! Katie was a wonderful host!

Great place for the money. Ideal location: walk one direction to town and the other to the park. So, easy access to both with minimal traffic. Place is a bit old and squeaky but in good way, and the value is exceptional. Would definitely stay again!

It was a nice stay.The location of the house is perfect. You can walk to the center of the town. It takes almost 20 minutes. The house is close to the main road of the island. Stairs to the second floor steep. House was nice and clean. It has all appliances and a fully equipped kitchen.

Great location, we walked into town every day and the loop was a short drive away. Quiet, safe neighborhood. Very close to a nice playground and small skate park. We walked by these and the YMCA on our way into town. Kitchen well equipped. Most of what we needed was there. Sink was large enough for the lobster pot, which we used frequently. Some of the furnishings are a bit worn, beds were squeaky, but ok, we had no trouble sleeping. Bedrooms are a good size. A huge plus were the window AC units. Was quite warm when we visited, so we were grateful for the air conditioning units in the 2 bedrooms and living room. Bathrooms are on the small size and well stocked. Shower was great, plenty of hot water and excellent water pressure. Stairs to the 2nd floor (2 bedrooms and half bath), are steep, but we adjusted quickly. Having a washer and dryer available in the basement was a great convenience as well. Great communication throughout the process. Overall a good place to stay if in the area.

We had an emergency at home and had to cut our stay very short. The owner and Airbnb were very kind and generous. We were so appreciative and grateful. We can’t wait to return to Bar Harbor next year!

This was perfect for our family`s trip to Mount Desert Island. Just a short walk to all the restaurants and shops downtown Bar Harbor, in a quie neighborhood, with access to Acadia National Park just a 10 minute drive away. The first floor was spacious with a huge kitchen and full bath. Second floor has 2 decent sized berooms with comfortable beds and a half bath. Although the place wasn`t too updated, it was clean and comfy!
