This large home is perfect for large families or friends. The location to all that Bar Harbor has to offer makes it perfect after a long day out in the park. The front porch is perfect to sit and people watch while enjoying a nice drink after a long day. And the kitchen is amazing! Also a big plus is the multiple washer & dryers and dishwashers. Really helped our big group. This house is a must stay!
Great accommodations in a historical house. Location is prime.
This is a wonderful, historic home with tons of space, a beautiful kitchen, an awesome front porch, off-street parking and a short and easy walk to all Bar Harbor amenities, shops, etc. Our two families (10 in total) loved biking to the carriage trails from Petunia Cottage, running/walking along the gravel bayside walking path and the short drives to hike throughout Acadia National Park. Our hosts provided fantastic hospitality and communication, going as far as checking in with us via email mid-week. We will definitely look to stay here again on our next trip to the Bar Harbor/Acadia area.
Cheri's Petunia Cottage met everyone of our expectations and then some! There were 16 of us and all had plenty of private and public space inside the house and on the front porch to enjoy each other's company. The attention to amenities in the cottage were very detailed, including the double sinks, dishwashers, washer/dryer, pool table and piano. The location of the Petunia Cottage is prime and accessible to anything in the village. Cheri offered several suggestions for restaurants, groceries, tours, etc. Our week in Bar Harbor, felt like home-away-from-home - Thank you, Cheri!!

Beautiful historic home with heaps of character. The location is just perfect, minutes walk from anywhere (waterfront, the sand bar, restaurants, and crucially, a grocery store!) and we walked most days across the bar to Bar. Comfortably roomy for our group (seriously, it took us ten minutes to figure out all the rooms when we arrived). And the remodeled kitchen is fantastic, and the key selling point for us! Would strongly recommend this for anybody.

What a nice, large, wonderfully furnished home! Exceeded our expectations. The location cannot be beat: right by the low-tide walkway to Bar Island, precious ideal parking spaces, but we enjoyed walking almost everywhere; and close to the Hulls Cove Acadia National Park entrance. We were a party of 11 ranging in age from 1 to 74. And we all loved it!
Minimum 7 days rental.
