About Jeffrey or Lesley Starling

We first visited Mount Dessert Island in 1981 with our children loved the Park and the town. We came back in 1998 and we still had the same love for the Town and especially the Park we ended up buying a home. Our son was married at Thunder Hole and lives on the Island with his wife and daughter.

We enjoy the trails, hikes, lakes and ocean, even climbed the Precipice, but came back down the easy way. never came down the way we went up.

We hope you enjoy the house and its location, because you can walk to almost every restaurant, stores, bars in town without the need to drive as you will discover parking is at a premium.

We hope you enjoy the town and park as much as our family has and still does. 'Enjoy the most Beautiful Island in America'

Jeffrey or Lesley Starling purchased this house in 1997

Why Jeffrey or Lesley Starling chose Bar Harbor

If you put a pin into the center of Bar Harbor you would end up at Eden Villa, within walking distance of everything the town has to offer. Just come have a good time no driving. A very safe garden for little people and pets, sit back relax and enjoy the town at it's best.

Spacious and Great Location!

  • 4 of 5

The house is spacious, clean, and very well stocked. Air conditioning and a bathroom on the first floor would have made it better, but we still enjoyed it! The owner is very responsive and answered all our questions immediately. It's a quick walk to the Bar Island Path, Main Street, and the grocery store. We had a great time and would recommend this house!

Great location!

  • 4 of 5

We loved our week in Bar Harbor and Acadia and the house is in the best location. Close to town, transportation and the grocery store. Very convenient. We were there in the middle of July and the house was very hot. I realize air conditioning isn't common in that part of the country but there was very little way to get air moving, especially on the third floor. It would also be nice if more of the windows could open and the veranda on the second floor/master was simply an oven. It is an old and rambling house and it had everything we needed and a great location. I would suggest some window units or somehow improving air movement in the summer months. Overall, we loved our stay, our location and the whole week.

Super location

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 6, 3 generations, spent a week in this lovely home in Bar Harbor. It was a great place to stay, an easy walk to the pier, restaurants, shopping and ice cream. It is only a short drive to Acadia NP visitors center. So much to do while in Bar Harbor. The house was immaculate. Very comfortable with a large deck. There was space for all 6 to gather yet there were also many places for any of us to read quietly and get some alone time. The owner is very responsive. We had a couple of questions while there and he got back to me within minutes. Great place to stay. Bar Harbor is one of my favorite places....and this house helped make our stay one of best family vacations ever!

Family Fun in Bar Harbor

  • 4 of 5

Lovely old home in quiet part of Bar Harbor. Plenty of space for our group of six plus dog to spread out. Wonderful deck off back of the house. Kitchen is well equiped. Laundry is in the somewhat scary basement. No handrail to use with the stairs in the basement. Lots of fans in the house but no AC. In master bedroom, only one window opens to the outside so no way to get cross ventilation. Shower off master is phone booth size. It worked well for us but could be a tight fit for some. We would stay here again.

Wonderful Large, Clean home for families

  • 5 of 5

Our group of 5 adults stayed here for one week. The home was great! Very clean, well furnished and the best location. The walk into town was easy and right down the street. The neighborhood was quiet and not very busy. A nice grocery store was a block away. The bedrooms are located on the second and third floors. Two bathrooms are on the second floor, (one in hall, one in the master bedroom). Nice private enclosed deck off of the master bedroom. We enjoyed the gas grill on the large deck behind the house and eating breakfast on it also. There are fans available throughout the house if necessary. Although the temperature wasn't too hot it was good to have them during the day and especially at night when sleeping. The bedrooms are a nice size and there is plenty of dressers and closet space. The washer /dryer came in handy. Large kitchen with everything you need if you choose to eat in which we did a few times. Plenty of towels and linens provided. One tv in living room which we really didn't use. There are even books, games and puzzles if you want some down time after a busy day. Lots of room and very comfortable! Highly recommend this home!!!

Almost Perfect

  • 4 of 5

Very comfortable home in very convenient Bar Harbor location. Our week went by in a flash. Parked our car and only used it a couple of times, although we were active every day! Walked to restaurants, walked to activities, walked to sight seeing.................walk, walk, walk................then eat, eat, eat. Lobster, lobster bisque, lobster rolls, lobster omelets...........what more could you ask for! Plenty of space in this home for family/friends gatherings! And the back deck with a fenced in back yard was perfect for grilling out and for our two pet dogs! We had no problems while we were there so we had no need to contact the owner after our initial "pick out a home on the internet period". Our advice, pick this one and you can't go wrong!
