5BR House Vacation Rental in Bar Harbor, Maine

Vacation Rentals

Updated on Jul 16, 2020

Large, late 1800s home. Secluded, yet adjacent to the central business district.

Located in: Bar Harbor


DURING OUR PEAK SEASON--from mid-June through mid-October, our price reflects use of the entire house (5 bedrooms [King, 2 queens, 2 double twins]/3 full baths), for a maximum of 10 guests, and, with very limited exception, we rent only weekly--(7 nights; Sunday to Sunday).


DURING OUR OFF SEASON--from mid-October through mid-JUNE, our price reflects the use of (3 bedrooms[King, Queen, double twin] /2 full baths), for a maximum of 6 guests. We also accept reservations of less than a full week, and without regard to which day of the week the reservation starts and ends on. The full house is available during this time, but at an additional cost.


Built in the 1890's, the Libby House sits in a tree-filled, sunny neighborhood abutting the historic residential district that was once home to a colony of summer "rusticators" comprised of New York Philharmonic Orchestra luminaries.

The Libby House is one of the largest rental properties in downtown Bar Harbor proper, offering 5 bedrooms (7 beds) and 3 full baths, parking for several vehicles, and sizable, verdant grounds filled with a variety of flowering trees and bushes. The central business district, with numerous shopping, entertainment, and dining options, as well as the ocean, town beach, Shore Path, Village Green, local museums, and main station for the complimentary island shuttle are a (genuine) 3-5 minute walk away.

Although almost everything that you will want to see or do in Bar Harbor is a quick walk away, the property is well-sheltered from the noise, congestion and lights of the downtown. The grounds are quite spacious, affording considerable room for children to play. Some of our favorite activities include taking an early morning walk on the shore path, enjoying a cocktail on the back porch at sunset, and catching a band concert on the nearby Village Green.

The house offers contemporary features and comforts while retaining a number of historic touches such plaster walls, hard-wood floors, detailed trim, claw-foot tubs, and ornate light fixtures. Once settled in this central location, many guests leave their car parked for the duration of their stay.

The Libby House is equipped with high speed internet WIFI, digital satellite, and Sirrius XM satellite radio. A collection of board games, puzzles and several dozen books are available to help pass the time.

During the summer season, guests have access to the entire house, except the cellar, a storage room on the 2nd floor, and the adjacent garage and barn. The situation is the same for the rest of the year, EXCEPT that a section of the second floor is closed (temporarily suspending the use of 1 Queen bedroom, 1 double Twin bedroom and one full bath) and not available UNLESS expressly requested to be rented.

We do not wish to disturb our guests during their stay. We will stop by to welcome you at your arrival and to ensure everything is to your satisfaction. We live nearby and are always available to answer questions or make recommendations.
