Ratings and Reviews

vacation
by Barbara and John B. on Sep 17, 2018

This home was amazing. It was quiet and private yet only a quick walk to all the downtown restaurants and shops. The view is the best in Bar Harbor and the garden is a little piece of heaven.


pleasure, hiking
by Mary W. on Aug 29, 2017

We love Briar Lodge and its excellent position on the Ocean path. It has the best view of any house on the island. It's such a cozy, wonderful place to visit and we never like to leave 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.
