Overview

About the property

Ledgelawn Cottage, a nineteenth century beauty on Bar Harbor's historic Ledgelawn Avenue, is steps from all the attractions of downtown and five minutes from Acadia National Park. Stroll to the village green, fine restaurants and quaint specialty shops, the Abbe Museum, Shore Path, free Island Explorer bus, tennis courts, skateboard park, playground and wading pool. Just a mile to Acadia National Park and the famed Kebo Valley Golf Course. We comfortably accommodate up to eight guests in this spacious family home, decorated with a blend of new and antique furnishings. Ledgelawn Cottage offers guests 3,000 square feet of living space on two floors.

Enter the house through the large enclosed front porch with ample seating, the perfect spot to relax with your morning coffee and plan the day's adventures. Once inside the central entrance hall, you will see the spacious living room to your left, with comfortable seating and large flat screen HDTV, home theater speakers, and DVD player. To your right is the reading room, well stocked with travel guides and maps, a table and chairs for studying the many brochures and area menus, shelves of books for children and adults, and a recliner for dozing or reading a good book. Old-fashioned pocket doors lead from the reading room into the sun-filled dining room, with lots of room for family meals or playing board games from the corner china cabinet.

Crossing the hall past the powder room, you will find yourself in a large, fully stocked kitchen blending antique charm with modern amenities. Every effort ha been made to ensure that guests have all they need to prepare meals for both indoor and outdoor dining.

Just past the kitchen is a sunny hallway leading to the laundry and shower rooms. A washer and dryer, drying rack, laundry baskets and detergent, ironing board and iron are provided. The separate shower room provides guests with a convenient place to wash up upon returning from hiking or biking in Acadia. Shelves hold fluffy towels, and a hairdryer and soaps are provided.

A few steps down from the rear hallway is the charming patio room. Surrounded by antique glass windows and featuring a brick floor, this large space has comfortable outdoor furniture for relaxing, as well as a table with wooden dining chairs and a cooling ceiling paddle fan. Just outside the back door is the gas grill, and a picnic table is placed in the shade across the big fenced backyard.

The second floor has four comfortable bedrooms with a range of bed sizes. The master bedroom has a king-sized bed with memory foam mattress. There is a room with a queen-sized bed, a room with a double brass four-poster, and a room with two twin beds. A pack-and-play and a wooden toddler bed are also available.

While we hope our visitors come to Ledgelawn Cottage to relax, we also provide a second-floor office equipped with computer, multi-function printer, and high speed internet Wi-Fi which is available throughout the house.

A skylit full bath with shower tub, towels, hairdryer and soaps completes the second floor.

Ledgelawn Cottage is a non-smoking, no pet vacation home.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Thank you for sharing your beautiful home. It was so convenient and welcoming on every level. My 84 year old mother (who was a home economics teacher) commented that it's the best equipped place that she has ever rented.

For me, it was the perfect place to gather our grown daughters from all over the country for a precious few days of family bonding with our extended family.

Fantastic property, close to everything in Town

  • 5 of 5

The house was absolutely fantastic and has everything you could possibly need for a stay with family or friends! Its proximity to downtown Bar Harbor is great - easily walkable for late nights or shopping trips. Plenty of parking on the street.

And Julie was fantastic! She even helped with suggestions for our rehearsal dinner party and responded to emails/texts immediately.

I wouldn't hesitate to stay here again!

Perfect Location

  • 5 of 5

The house is centrally located just a block or two away from all of the restaurants, groceries and shops in Bar Harbor (including the low tide access to Bar Island). If you take advantage of the Acadia shuttle system you would never need to touch your car once you arrived. Even better, you are just out of the busy traffic are (pedestrian and automobiles).

The house itself is great. All of the rooms are very spacious and comfortable. The kitchen is fully stocked and easy to cook in. The beds were extremely comfortable and everything was provided. No problems running hot water as they have an on-demand system.

The owner is awesome. Extremely responsive and kind. I'm definitely hoping to get back to Bar Harbor again and I cannot imagine staying anywhere else that would be better.

Ideal location, comfortable home

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed a lovely week-long family vacation at Ledgelawn Cottage. The location is ideal for strolling around Bar Harbor and is also a short drive away from Acadia. The bedrooms and gathering areas were very clean and comfortable. Julie was responsive and helpful and check-in/out was seamless. We hope to return to Bar Harbor again soon!
