Our home is close to the Bar Harbor town center, public transport, Acadia National Park, shops and nightlife. You’ll love our place because of the location and ambiance. It is near downtown but private and quiet with plenty of off street parking and a spacious garden. The space is great for couples, families (including kids), and big groups. 3 bedrooms plus additional sleeping futon in living room and sleeper sofa on the sunporch.

The space

The property can accommodate 8 guests. Two queen beds are in the two downstairs bedrooms, with an additional stowaway bed that can be placed wherever preferred. The third bedroom is a loft on the 2nd floor with two twin beds. The living room contains a futon that pulls out to a double bed as well as a futon chair that can pull out into a single bed (with ottoman). The sunroom contains a sleeper sofa.

The garden contains a grill that you can use, as well as outdoor seating, adding to the many ways you can enjoy the house and make yourself comfortable while you are here. We hope to have the opportunity to host you!

Guest access

Guests have access to all of the home except for a small 2nd floor "in-law" apartment in the rear of the building. The tenant in that apartment has a private entrance. The basement laundry facilities are exclusively for your use as is the garden.

Interaction with guests

Elsie and I will be available as needed. We live in Bar Harbor a short distance away and look forward to assisting you to make your vacation and stay with us an enjoyable one.

Great location, close to downtown. Good space for 6 people or more, and the grill and back patio were a great addition to the stay. Would definitely stay again.

Richard's place is convenient to everything. We walked virtually everywhere we needed to go. The home is attractive and comfortable, and the backyard was a lovely place for our group to enjoy coffee in the morning. Richard was very responsive to the couple of questions/needs we had. I definitely recommend staying here, if you're in Bar Harbor/Acadia N.P. area.

This old house is thoroughly updated with new appliances including room air-cons (mostly not needed of course). For us, the outstanding feature was the large kitchen in which family and guests can gather and look out at the garden. There is a general sense of roominess, though we maxed out at 5 people, rather than the potential 8, at one point. The location is excellent; you can walk all around Bar Harbor, and you can easily get to the park or other parts of the island. My only reservation is that, for us, the beds in the main bedrooms were too soft. I see other reviewers like them, so this is a question of personal taste. If you like harder beds, you'll need to use the upstairs room, but even those beds are not very hard. With that one reservation that may not bother most people, we were extremely happy with this house.

The house was everything that we were hoping for. Elsie was extremely friendly, reaching out periodically to ensure that everything was going smoothly. The house was in a great location, a short walk from everything downtown and only a short drive to Acadia. It was very spacious for our group with a great outdoor garden area to enjoy as well. The kitchen was well stocked, enabling us to cook several meals there. Everything was clean and it really made our stay enjoyable!

We loved our stay at 25 Eden! Super clean and all the beds were very comfortable. The kitchen was spacious and had all we needed. We enjoyed having breakfast in the peaceful garden. It is an easy walk to shops and restaurants. Couldn't have asked for more, we would stay again in a minute and highly recommend. Enjoy!

This home provides lots of space to spread out, with a beautiful yard and comfortable beds. Parking is super convenient, and we hardly used our car once we parked. So easy to walk into town (great restaurants just minutes away), and we took the free bus into Acadia. Grocery store and drug store also within walking distance. We'd definitely stay here again. Hosts were helpful and available.
