It's hard to rave too much about Bar Harbor's The Village Green Hideaway rental home. In fact, it is tempting to not review it - no one who's been there wants a mad dash on the place making it harder to book next time.
But The Hideaway is too wonderful to keep silent about. A lovely home in a perfect location - right on the edge of downtown Bar Harbor. The house has, 2 comfy bedrooms, beautiful spa shower, huge kitchen, great living room with cable, comfy fireplace, great work desk. There's a great TV, cable and many, many DVDs. Flawless internet access. The price for a week is just right, too.
Everything is brand new and spanking clean, and the glorious windows let in wonderful light, but the Hideaway is still nestled in a corner off the main path so there's no feeling of being in the middle of town despite the fact that is exactly, happily, where the Hideaway is. Easy walk to the grocery store, fabu restaurants, the movie theater, even the YMCA is close by. For the cross country skiers and snowshoe-ers, Acadia National Park is next door, with the heavenly Eagle Lake 3 miles up the road on which the Hideaway sits.
Late December through early January was a great time to hunker down at the Hideaway, go on hikes in the day and walk to town in the afternoons and evenings. The owner is next door - very sweet to check on renters, but completely respectful of privacy. She's quite the charmer!
Hard to believe anything could make Bar Harbor better, but the Hideaway does. Highly recommended. http://www.homeaway.com/vacation-rental/p170479
