Family Fun
by Linda C. on Aug 16, 2019

Great house for a large crowd everyone enjoyed the pool table and the kitchen island which was a great gathering place. The porch was great for people watching and the location was perfect.

Absolutely love the Petunia House. The side expansed veranda provides family time and people watching galore. The house handled our large family, providing us with plenty of room, tons of seating at the dining table, wonderfully equipped kitchen, 2_washers and dryers and great bedrooms with comfortable beds. The home is experiencing some great renovations and look forward to seeing what's in store next for this home.


Family vacation
by Audrey and Brian F. on Jun 25, 2019

Amazing home and perfect location! Walking distance to everything you could need: sand bar, shopping district, restaurants, grocery store, the harbor. The home had everything we needed, including hair dryers! Plenty of space, ample rooms and beautifully renovated while keeping some of the old world charm. We absolutely loved borrowing this home, highly recommend for a large group. We walked everywhere when we weren’t hiking or exploring the rest of the island.


Family celebration
by Terre S. on Sep 20, 2018

Petunia Cottage was the most perfect location. We were just a few minutes walk to dinning, shore excursions, shopping and had the best location for observing and exploring the daily the tidal changes. The home perfectly accommodated our party of 12. We enjoyed the large kitchen for breakfast and even stayed in a night for dinner in the large dinning room. Movies on nights we opted to stay in and friendly conversation as we greeted daily visitors to the island from the large front porch. Bar Harbor is what small town life should be. One of the best.


Family reunion/ vacation
by Annmarie S. on Jun 22, 2018

Petunia cottage is a beautiful home with a perfect location!! Beds were comfortable and the kitchen was fully stocked and gorgeous!! I am only giving the home 3 stars because navigating the home was difficult for my elderly parents and handicapped son . The uneven floors and raised thresholds were difficult. Otherwise our stay was spectacular!!


Vacation
by Suri S. on Aug 25, 2017

Beautiful historic home with heaps of character. The location is just perfect, minutes walk from anywhere (waterfront, the sand bar, restaurants, and crucially, a grocery store!) and we walked most days across the bar to Bar Island at low tide. Comfortably roomy for our group (seriously, it took us ten minutes to figure out all the rooms when we arrived). And the remodeled kitchen is fantastic, and the key selling point for us! Would strongly recommend this for anybody.


Family reunion vacation
by Sue and Gordon B. on Jul 31, 2017

What a nice, large, wonderfully furnished home! Exceeded our expectations. The location cannot be beat: right by the low-tide walkway to Bar Island, precious ideal parking spaces, but we enjoyed walking almost everywhere; and close to the Hulls Cove Acadia National Park entrance. We were a party of 11 ranging in age from 1 to 74. And we all loved it!


Bar Harbor's village and surrounding rural residential areas are a popular destination for visitors to Acadia National Park. The town center offers diverse shops, restaurants and activities. Acadia National Park's Hulls Cove entrance, as well as other major entrances, are located just outside the village center. Not all properties listed as 'Bar Harbor' are actually in the village of Bar Harbor, since the town of Bar Harbor encompasses the northern half of Mt. Desert Island, most of which is quite rural in nature. However, homes within this area are usually between five and fifteen minutes' drive to the village center.
