“Cozy home for a family”
Thank you to DeeDee for making our stay in Bar Harbor a great one! I rented the house for my family and I, for a long weekend visit to Bar Harbor. My family made it to the house before I did, and DeeDee welcomed them and quickly gave them suggestions of where to go visit, explore, eat and find everything they needed, she made them feel very comfortable, we even had freshly baked bread! The house was incredibly comfortable for 6 people and had everything you would need for a long stay. It was a great home base to go explore the town of Bar Harbor which is all within walking distance, explore the shoreline, restaurants and pubs. We went in early May so the weather was a bit rainy in the mornings and it was nice to be able to hang out in the living space and enjoy each other's company. I highly recommend this home to anyone looking for a vacation spot that makes you feel at home.

Thank you for taking time to do a review for me! I really think it helps when people are looking for a place to stay. I know you all enjoyed your time here in Acadia as well as side trips you took. After talking to you I could tell you did a lot while here. One week sometimes isn't enough because there is so much to see and do. You're always welcome to stay at my place again if you do come back to the area. I enjoyed meeting all of you and am glad you enjoyed you're stay. Thanks for leaving things in tip top shape. DeeDee

This is truly a home away from home! We felt so welcomed here. The place was spotless (very much appreciated), an excellent location, and very kid-friendly. The owner went out of her way to ensure that we were taken care of. Oustanding!

Hi Kent and family, You made it through the week with great weather for getting out and exploring the island. Since you had been here before but awhile ago I'm sure you saw some changes in town. Needless to say, you can't beat Acadia for the beauty here! I'm glad you all had a good time and that I got to meet your parents. Thanks for contacting me and deciding to stay at my place. I am glad you found things to your satisfaction. DeeDee
“What a fabulous family weekend!”
What a wonderful way to start our summer vacation! Dee Dee, thank you so much for your hospitality during our stay. You were a great help to us when deciding what to do around town. We are already planning our next time to come stay at your place again! For those considering a visit to Bar Harbor, I cannot think of a better place to stay. Dee Dee's house was extremely clean and well appointed. Everything we needed was at our fingertips. The kitchen was fully stocked with utensils, pots and pans and there were games and movies for the kids. Best of all, downtown Bar Harbor was a very short walk/bike ride for our family with kids aged 6, 9 and 12. We had a fabulous stay at Dee Dee's house in Bar Harbor and recommend it to those looking for a home base while visiting the acadia region.

Hi there, I really enjoyed meeting all of you and especially liked my note from the little one and it is now in the guestbook ! So cute ! isn't it funny that I would have some of your products in my rental. Who would of thought. The guestbook was bought from one of my oher guests so guess she liked your products, too. I am glad that you had a good time and survivied BeeHive. There was an accident there just last week where someone fell and broke a leg. I look forward to you coming back at a later time and maybe spend more time in the area. Enjoy the rest of the summer. DeeDee Shields

“Best service/owner/location and cleanest property ever rented!”
The owner DeeDee is the best thing about this property. The apartment is spotless. It is the best property we've ever encountered and we've used several owner/vacation rental sites in our travel. It's the best not because it's the fanciest but because it is so comfortable, well appointed, and in such a great location to do everything the Bar Harbor area has to offer. It is very close to acadia, within walking distance to grocery, restaurants and shops of Bar Harbor. It is childproofed. The bedrooms are upstairs with one bath. Downstairs is sunroom/receiving room, open concept living(large flatscreen TV and DVD player)/kitchen fully equipped and stocked with basic needs, the 2nd bath with washer/dryer. We cannot say enough about the positives and cannot identify any negatives.
Response from the owner, Delores M Shields - 06/23/2013

It would of been nice if you could of stayed a little longer but at least now you can think about a possible trip back to the area now that you know what Acadia as to offer. You all were a pleasure to meet and I thank you for choosing my place to stay while on your vacation. Our goal is to not only offer you a clean and comfortable place to stay but to also, give you some tips that might make your stay and outside adventures even more enjoyable. Thanks again for a great write up. Hope someday you can visit the area again. Enjoy the rest of your summer ! DeeDee

“Family fun in Bar Harbor and acadia National Park”
We had a fantastic (although rainy) visit to Bar Harbor. The house is nicer than the pictures show with a comfortable living area and good sized kitchen. One bathroom is downstairs with the washer and dryer. It is a good sized bathroom. Both bedrooms are upstairs with a separate bathroom. Both bedrooms are the same size. The house is spotless and Dee Dee is very kind providing advice and toys for the children to play with. The kitchen is very well equipped with just about anything you could ever need! It was a great stay! The only item that may not be ideal is that both bathrooms have showers (versus a tub). The location is great- quiet street and walking distance to the village. This didn't affect us. Great stay- wish we could have stayed longer!

“Christmas in Bar Harbor”
We spent our Christmas holiday in this lovely town home. It was great to have all the conveniences of home -- an extremely well-equipped, full kitchen, laundry, two bathrooms. Our hostess was very welcoming and made us feel like old friends. She also provided helpful info on restaurants, shopping, local activities and directions. The furnishings are homey and comfortable. The location is very convenient, walking distance to restaurants, shopping, groceries, Ymca and the waterfront. You'll enjoy a stay here at any season of the year!
Response from the owner, Delores M Shields - 01/01/2013
Dear Nancy and David, It was nice to have someone stay at my place over the holidays. I am happy that you both were comfortable here and that you also got out and did a few things even though it was cold. How nice to hear you took advantage of our YMCA. I thought you would find it welcoming. Wishing you both a Happy New Year in 2013 ! I hope someday you will consider staying in my rental another time. Thanks so much for leaving it in great condition ! I am looking forward to maybe seeing you again on another one of your vacations. DeeDee
“Absolutely wonderful property”
Home away from Home was just that. Everything about it made you feel like you were at your own home. It was easy to find, well located to grocery, restaurants and town. The house was well furnished and equiped with everything you would need plus some. And one of the most important things to me is cleanliness and it was immaculate. There were restaurant menus, brochures and books on the area. Dee Dee was also easy to work with and checked in on us to see if we had everything we needed.
Response from the owner, Delores M Shields - 11/03/2012
Hi to all of you, Thanks for taking the time to do a review for me. I am glad your trip to Maine was a good one and staying at my place was a good experience. Thanks for sharing your thoughts and views about my place. I appreciate it ! Hope to have you back sometime. DeeDee
“The Perfect Spot to Vacation in Bar Harbor!!!”
This townhome was amazing. Immaculate, comfortable and unexpected extras were provided by DeeDee. We were right in Bar Harbor and rather than drive we walked 10 minutes to shops, restaurants and in-town sites. We were just a few minutes from the grocery store. The kitchen had everything to make a breakfast meal or a nice dinner - there was also a big grill and picnic table in the yard. We went on picnics all over the island - coolers, binoculars and camp chairs were some of the unexpected extras in the house. DeeDee makes herself available if there should be any problems or concerns, and, she provided lots of information on the area and lots of ideas on what to see and do - rain or shine. We saw the quiet side of the island and the hub of the island, we went to the Schoodic Penninsula, we went star gazing on top of Cadillac Mountain one clear-cool night, we canoed on Long Pond, we biked the carriage trails in the national park and had a delicious lunch (with popovers) at Jordon Pond. Every day was jam packed and each night we got to come home to the perfect place to relax. This townhome is nicely situated in a quiet residential neighborhood and is the perfect spot to stay!!! Our thanks to DeeDee for insuring each of her guests "a memorable vacation and a comfortable home to spend it in"!!!

“A clean, comfy home with close proximity to shops, restaurants a”
Dee's house was very clean, with all the comforts of home! She provided restaurant suggestions (they were all wonderful), and told us about activities happening close by. Dee checked to make sure we had everything we needed at the house (and we did)! All in all this was a great vacation spot - walking distance to shops and eateries... and a very short drive to acadia!
Response from the owner, Delores M Shields - 09/07/2012
Hi, Thanks for choosing my place to stay while in Acadia. I was happy to hear that you found everything to your liking. The short walk to town and the park entrances make it a perfect place to stay. The availabilty of the free shuttle buses are great and within waking distance from my place. I hope you and your friends went home with some nice memories and maybe sometime return for another vacation in Acadia ! It was nice meeting all of you ! Thanks, DeeDee
