      Incredible Property

      My fiancé and I came up to visit bar harbor with her parents and our dogs to finalize our wedding plans and had an amazing visit. We come up every year and stay at different places around the island, but nothing compares to this location. Great bedrooms and wonderful views throughout the upstairs. Would definitely stay here again.

              Fun Family Vacation

              We enjoyed our stay at the Mount Desert House! The location was perfect, made it easy to get to everything on Mount Desert Island and the free Island explorer shuttle had a stop basically next door to where we were staying! The owners, Bill and Tina were very friendly and helpful. A clear path down to the water where the canoe and kayak were located would have helped, but other than that, we were very happy with our stay and had a wonderful time! Thank you!
