The cottage was perfectly situated between the park and town. Comfortable. Clean.

What a great stay we just had at Birch Cottage!

Excellent location just steps away from a really lovely playground and a kids wading pool, a 10 minute walk to the heart of downtown, and a really great spot for peaceful, lovely breaks throughout your vacation in Bar Harbor and Acadia. The unit was older but very clean and well maintained.

A few things to note:
The kitchen has the bare minimum. We had to purchase a can opener. If you plan on cooking a lot (which we did) know going in that you won't have a ton of tools to work with. I wish there were: measuring spoons, storage containers, can opener, whisk, etc.

There's a washer/dryer in the unit so pack light! We didn't end up using over half the clothing we brought.

There's AC in the master bedroom but not the front bedroom. We used a fan that was in the basement to push air from the back bedroom to the front bedroom. It worked pretty well but we were there while it was nice and cool and the windows did a lovely job.

Bring or rent bikes! We cruised all over town and there's a bike rack out back for storage.

The parking is super tight. It says 2 spaces, but it's really only one. But for Bar Harbor and a two-bedroom, that's pretty great!

There's an awesome trail, Compass Harbor about 1 mile away and a very quick bike ride. Check it out!

There's no real outdoor space except for a small deck with a table and four chairs. We spent time at the front entrance where there was a little patch of lawn. This was no big deal for us since we ended up at the playground most mornings and nights. The park is VERY close!

The location is excellent and great for families. There is a park less than two blocks away with a playground and a free pool (not deeper than 3 feet so great for young children). It`s about a fifteen minute drive to Acadia National Park and the walk to Bar Harbor is excellent. A truly stunning and picturesque locale.

Good stay that is fairly close to downtown Bar Harbor. Close to a park and playground and is dog friendly!

16B Norris Ave in Bar Harbor was a lovely clean town home with a nice size deck behind the unit. The location was 8 to 15 minutes walk to town, and was located on a quiet street. The kitchen came fully equiped from Keurig to lobster pot. Right across the street was an open square which was a welcome spot for our dog to romp around. Overall a really relaxing spot with all necessary amenities

This unit was very clean and furnished very well. The staff responded incredibly quickly to questions we had. We loved the quiet street, and the close proximity to Acadia. It was wonderful to be able to walk downtown too. Highly recommended!
