About the property

4 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, Sleeps 8 Comfortably

Super cozy and conveniently located, this 4-bedroom and 2- bath house will make your vacation. It comfortably sleeps eight and is within walking distance to all of in-town Bar Harbor's amenities. The trails into Acadia National Park? They are just a hike, run, or bike away. If don't want to walk everywhere, you can rent bikes, ride the free shuttle (and bring your bikes), or drive to see more of the area. Bring your family and enjoy this beautiful coastal town and the 100th anniversary of Acadia National Park!

About Steve Boucher

One of us writes books for a living.

One of us has spent most of his adult life protecting and serving the people of Bar Harbor.


We're a pretty good combination!

Steve Boucher purchased this bungalow in 2014

Why Steve Boucher chose Bar Harbor and Mount Desert Island

We purchased the house as a place for a Bar Harbor firefighter and his young family to live. After they had established themselves and gotten a place of their own, we still owned a house! Now you get to rent it. : )

What makes this bungalow unique

This house is just so close to everything! Walk, walk, walk, that is good advice for in-town summer travel. The free Island Explorer shuttle is also a five-minute walk away and will take you anywhere on Mount Desert Island that you would like to go!

Great Location to Explore Acadia National Park

  • 4 of 5

We made a great choice in renting this home. The owners were flexible when we had a medical emergency that required a slight change in plans. Check in was incredibly easy; we felt as though we were visiting family friends when we arrived with the blueberry pie on the counter! The walkout basement was ideal with the bicycles, hiking and running equipment we brought to enjoy the outdoor environment of Bar Harbor and Acadia National Park. We stayed active hiking the Gorham Mountain Trail, Champlain Mountain Trail, Beehive Trail, Pemetic Mountain Trail and enjoyed the carriage trails, Sands Beach and the town of Bar Harbor. The location of the house made everything easily accessible. Be mindful, however, that the home is located directly on Eden Street. The street is busy and noisy with traffic all day and evening. Also note that one bedroom in the home exits either through a shared bathroom or another bedroom. Additionally, the departure requirements required considerable time; as per the directions, we stripped every bed, washed sheets and towels, sorted recycling and organized trash.

house was clean, comfortable, in good condition and actually quite roomy with two adjacent living rooms and four bedrooms, only one of which was fairly small - the others were roomy; linens and towels were new and plentiful; only downside was the location adjacent to a busy road - frequent motorcycles and trucks were quite noisy; otherwise, location was handy to downtown attractions
