Booked the central house to be in walking distance to Bar Harbor main street. Worked out great. Not too expensive, but close without being right in the middle of the tourists. The wallpaper is extreme, but it's part of the uniqueness of a beautiful old...More

Many thanks for staying with us and for your review!
This is a really beautiful house & we loved the porch area. In our room the bed was small & right next to the bathroom door which wasn’t ideal as we were 2 friends staying rather than a couple but we only stayed 1 night...More

I would stay in Bar Harbor for three days. Just park your car there and you are all set. You can walk to the shops, restaurants and the water. You can hop on the buses everyday and go into Arcadia National Park. My husband and I hiked two days in the park, ate lobster at the waterfront, browsed the shops, went on a sailboat ride, rented bikes and just had a great time. You will love it there. We ate breakfast at Jordan's also every morning, it is a great place to eat and very friendly.
