Lots of space to relax.

We would definitely stay here again. Host lives next door and was very friendly with suggestions on which restaurants to go to. House is bigger than it looks in the pictures. Lots of space to relax. It is within walking distance of downtown Bar Harbor which saved us from having to drive and find parking. - (Sep 2023 - ABNB)

Great location

A spacious one bedroom in a great location. The apartment is comfortable, clean, and quiet. - (Aug 2023 - ABNB)


This is a great place to stay, I appreciated the extra touches

This is a great place to stay. Close to downtown and Acadia Park. We were able to walk to Downtown. The place is very quaint and very clean. We appreciated being able to park our car in the driveway. It is quite too. The Host is friendly and accessible. I appreciated the extra touches like tissue, detergent, paper towels and hand soap in the BR and kitchen. We were not ready to leave and would highly recommend staying here. - (Jun 2023 - ABNB)


Location was absolutely great!

Location was absolutely great! Within walking distance of Bar Harbor and only 5 minutes from the entrance to Acadia. The house was very clean and convenient; they provided just the right amount of necessities to cook if you wanted to too. We really enjoyed our stay and they were friendly and informative when asking for recommendations. Would absolutely stay here again and would recommend others to as well. - (Oct 2022 - ABNB)


The place was perfect!

The place was perfect! AC in the bedroom was much appreciated. It had everything we needed and more. The location was great! A nice quiet street close to downtown so you could walk around there and very close to Acadia. My only suggestion would be to put a shower curtain liner in. We would definitely stay here again when (not if!) we go back to Acadia. - (Aug 2022 - ABNB)


Everything we needed was in the apt. The hosts were very helpful.

What a truly special place.

First vacation as a family of 3 with our 9 month old daughter. What a truly special place. The location is incredible, as we walked 5-10 mins to restaurants, breweries and parks. Everything was very clean and spacious. AC and washer/dryer were great. Communication with hosts was excellent. Already thinking about next year! - (Aug 2022 - ABNB)


We really enjoyed our stay

We really enjoyed our stay. Don't judge this Airbnb by the photos. It is the entire, spacious first floor of a nicely renovated house within easy walking distance of all Bar Harbor has to offer. Each day when we finished exploring the park, we left the car parked in the driveway and walked to a different restaurant or fun location. It has great Wi-Fi, Direct TV and a well-equipped kitchen. The owners are quick to respond and very helpful and hospitable. I'd stay there again. - (Jul 2022 - ABNB)


Perfect little cottage

Perfect little cottage on a quiet residential side street about 10 minute easy walk to Main Street in Bar Harbor. This home is bigger than appears in pictures and very comfortable. Kitchen is fully stocked with everything you need to cook in any meals. Very clean and organized. Air conditioner works great. Back deck with Adirondack chairs and yard a major plus! Hope to stay here again! - (Jun 2022 - ABNB)


The house is charming,

You can't find a better location that 8 Myrtle Ave. We were just a few minutes away from some of the most beautiful trailheads in Acadia! Every minute counts when you're trying to make it to a 4:55am sunrise on top of Cadillac Mountain! The house is also walking distance to downtown Bar Harbor, bike rentals, some amazing restaurants, Bar Island and the beautiful Shore Path. We had some of the best seafood of our lives! The house is charming, the bed was so comfy and we had everything we needed including a huge bonus - washer/dryer. We couldn't have found a better spot in Bar Harbor, and we sincerely hope to make another trip back some day! - (May 2022 - ABNB)


Highly recommend!

Great place! Location to downtown was easy. Host was wonderful. Highly recommend! - (Sep 2021 - ABNB)


So nice to have such a comfortable central home base.

Super easy check-in, lovely space equipped with kitchen appliances and utensils so that we were comfortable for a week's stay. The location is great for day trips to Acadia and to explore Bar Harbor. The rooms are good and don't feel cramped, and the bed is quite firm. We enjoyed our day spent in the living room during a day too rainy to hike. Would highly recommend! - (Sep 2021 - ABNB)


The house was very comfortable, quiet and convenient.

Don't judge a book by it's cover... or in this case, don't judge this AirBnB home by the cover photo. It may not have great curb appeal, but the house was nicely renovated inside and very comfortable and clean. The neighborhood was very quiet, but very convenient to town. We never had to drive through the congested town center or hunt for parking. We also enjoyed being able to bike directly to the carriage roads via back roads (West St Ext to Duck Brook - be forewarned that it is uphill!). - (Aug 2021 - ABNB)


Fantastic place!

Fantastic place! Very clean and spacious! Well-appointed. Two coffee makers (Keurig and Mr. Coffee), and now it has cutting boards and knives (unlike earlier poster mentions). Lots of room to spread out, easy to walk anywhere in Bar Harbor and super quiet area. Can't wait to go back!! - (Jul 2021 - ABNB)


Perfect space for a couple. Highly recommend.

This place was great. 10 mins (or less) from Acadia National Park. Downtown restaurants and attractions were within walking distance (0.5-1mi). House was clean and cozy. Bed was a bit hard and there's no dishwasher but these items were not really an issue for us. - (Oct 2020)


Great place to stay in bar harbor 5 min from Acadia National which was great for us

Everything was clean and windows were opened which was a nice thing especially during covid. - (Sep 2020 - ABNB)


This very clean spacious apartment was perfect for my kid & I

(and would also be good for two adults.) The unit was clean, simply furnished and newly renovated. Bonus: This rental has wood floors and is pet-free! Great for us allergy sufferers. There was 5G wifi which worked flawlessly. Also lots of DVDs and cable TV in the living room which came in handy on that one rainy afternoon. The leather couch was cozy and well worn-in also. The full-sized kitchen/laundry room was airy, efficient and clean but lacking a few essentials like cooking knives and a cutting board. Luckily, I travel with my essential chef knives and my sister had bought a souvenir cutting board on our way into town. (FYI, the large glass board is a trivet - not for cutting on.) There were also two coffee makers including a Keurig so excellent for coffee-drinkers! BTW, the bed sheets on the king-sized bed were the nicest sheets I've ever touched. 100% cotton and silky to the touch - again great for folks with synthetic material sensitivities. I should also add that the Natural Food store and local bike rental shop is only a block or two walk away. The land bar to Bar Island was also a short walk away. Overall, it's a very DIY type of space. We never met the hosts but the neighbor, Dave, was welcoming and great at small talk and local info. He was our check-in and check-out committee. I highly recommend the space for self-sufficient travelers who want a view of the Milky Way from the backyard!!! Lastly, we will definitely be booking this space again because we fell in love with Acadia and are definitely coming back! - (Sep 2020 - ABNB)
