Located on the 'quiet side' of Mount Desert Island, just minutes from Acadia National Park and its outdoor activities, yet only a short drive to Bar Harbor. Designed for your comfort and relaxation. No detail has been overlooked.
All three bedrooms have LLBean quilts on the queen beds, and there are also two toddler beds for our smaller guests. We have a portable pack and play crib for infants. We have a Rannai tankless water heater, so you never run out of hot water and both bathrooms have fluffy towels and some toiletries are supplied. There is no air-conditioning but ceiling fans in all the bedrooms and living room keep the house cool. In the winter we have electric heat upstairs and gas heat downstairs. The living room has comfortable seating, HDTV with cable and a gas fireplace and the kitchen is fully equipped, including a lobster pot! We have tried very hard to "think of everything" so you don't have to. We provide Keurig coffee, cream and sugar, and all dishes and utensils. We also have a washer and dryer and provide specialty laundry detergent.
You will be renting the entire house, which also includes a large yard, with room for kids to play. We have several old-fashioned outdoor games available such as badminton and ring toss games. There is a gas BBQ grill on the back deck. An access code will be provided shortly before your stay.
Harbor Star Cottage is your private getaway. We are available by phone but do not live locally. We do have a local caretaker who can be easily reached and is available for any issues that might need attention.
We only rent weekly from Saturday to Saturday during the peak season, which is generally from Memorial Day to Labor Day, but offer nightly rates during the off peak season.
There is absolutely no smoking in Harbor Star Cottage. We do not allow pets due to allergy concerns.
