STUNNING PROPERTY ~ SUPERSTAR OWNERS/HOSTS! Sunrise from the private deck is spectacular (you can skip Cadillac Mtn.), sunsets on the property are like a fire in the sky, the lack of light pollution = star gazing from the deck (yes!). The owners have really thought about the guest experience as they provide brand new travel sizes of personal care products in the bath, complimentary access to many streaming platforms, a washer & dryer along with detergent for guest use, plus so much more, The grounds were immaculate with an abundance of wildlife that you can watch right from the apartment (we were treated to turkeys and deer almost every day). There is a path down to a rocky beach that we had all to ourselves ~ you have to check it out-we loved it! The apartment was thoughtfully designed, is well-appointed and has high end finishes throughout. The owner [ Ken ] is extremely friendly, attentive and responds without hesitation. When coming back to Bar Harbor I will only stay here!! - (Sep 2023 - ABNB)


The view across the bay is incredible!!

This above garage apartment is new and beautifully appointed and decorated. The view across the bay is incredible!! We could have just sat on the deck all day and enjoyed the view. The owner is incredibly responsive and helpful and lives in the main house on the property. The amenities include an outdoor barbecue, and fire pit. It is a very short drive to both Acadia and Bar Harbor. We cannot say enough about how much we enjoyed our stay. Thank you!! - (Sep 2023 - ABNB)


An incredible experience overall.

Highview was amazing location. Perched atop a large hill, the views were simply amazing. Sunrise was spectacular. The apartment was meticulous, and the owner had incredible attention to details and quality. The exterior included beautiful landscaping, rock work, fire pit area, outdoor dining area. Minutes from downtown and even closer to Acadia entrance. The owners were the nicest folks and very helpful. An incredible experience overall. The property was phenomenal. We will be returning to this location again. - (Sep 2023 - ABNB)


Highly recommend this rental!

The place was in impeccable/new condition. Everything worked and the amenities were as described or better. The owner was extremely available and helpful and went above and beyond to give advice about the area when we asked. The owner was very gracious with the house and its facilities. The area is minutes from the Visitor's Center of Acadia National Park also very near the main town of Bar Harbor. There is a beautiful view of the bay, and the surroundings are very scenic. Highly recommend this rental! - (Jul 2023 - ABNB)


We could not have found a better location

The cottage was absolutely the nicest home we have stayed in - the entire cottage was very high-end, very well decorated with super comfy furnishings. We could not have found a better location as the view of the ocean was spectacular and the cottage is nestled away in a hill-top, secluded neighborhood (looked like the highest point) with beautiful trees and foliage. It is only 3 miles from the city of Bar Harbor (dining) and super close to Acadia National Park -- perfect location. The cottage has every amenity needed and a wonderful outdoor area with an extensive grill station. Ken, the host, was awesome too. He was very friendly and explained everything about the property and he has in-depth knowledge of the area and of Maine. He was a pleasure to talk to. Overall this stay was one of our best and hope to return again in the future. - (Jul 2023 - ABNB)


The view from the big balcony is phenomenal.

Probably the nicest Airbnb I have ever stayed at. They had absolutely everything you could possibly want or need. The apartment is beautifully designed and tastefully decorated. Everything is new and super clean. The view from the big balcony is phenomenal. The location is 7-8 minutes from the bar harbor village and Acadia hiking. When I needed anything the owner was incredibly generous and responsive and accommodating. It was just me for this stay, but it would be a very comfortable and cozy place for a couple. Don't even think twice, you'll be so happy here!! - (Jul 2023 - ABNB)


Beautiful place with a beautiful sunrise every morning!

Beautiful place with a beautiful sunrise every morning! Peaceful and private. Ken was more than accommodating!  
Spotless furniture & linens, Squeaky-clean bathroom, Pristine kitchen, Clear instructions. - (Jun 2023 - ABNB)


The views are stunning

We stayed for four nights and couldn't have been happier. It was private, quite and comfortable. The views are stunning. Alan provided a comprehensive list of restaurants. The town of Bar Harbor is very close, and we enjoyed a few tours. I highly recommend this rental and hope to visit again! - (May 2023 - ABNB)
