Historic Cottage with Fast WiFi, Full Kitchen, & Private W/D - Walk into Town

Located in the heart of Bar Harbor, this historic cottage boasts convenience and charm! Built in 1850 - and listed on the town's historic registry - this delightful home has been lovingly refurbished, offering the perfect blend of nostalgia and modern comfort. With views of Bar Island visible from the home, guests will enjoy an easy walk to the downtown waterfront, bustling with shops and restaurants. Time the tides to make the 1/2 mile trek across the eponymous "Bar" of Bar Harbor - the land bridge connecting mainland and Bar Island.

The home's two-story floor plan features a primary suite with an attached bathroom and sitting room upstairs, and a cheerful den/study that doubles as a second guest room equipped with a full-size sofabed. The kitchen offers a full array of major appliances for any home cooking needs and a private washer/dryer allows guests to pack light no matter the season. Use the free, in-home WiFi to upload the day's photos to your social account and unwind by the gas/electric stove in the living room while streaming your favorite shows and movies on the wall-mounted smart TV before heading for bed.

What a wonderful home with a great history. The location of this home was perfect for Bar Harbor and the parking spot was so useful. Enjoyed our stay.

Cozy house with a lot of charm and a cool history. Right in the heart of downtown Bar Harbor, we could walk to everything.

Cute cottage, around the corner from Bar Harbor’s main street. Very clean, nice amenities. We (family of 3) were very very happy for a week.
