Acadia National Park makes a great destination for a holiday with your pets. At the border of the park lies a quiet town named Bar Harbor. The beautiful place attracts tourists with its small-town charm and beautiful topography. One of the most popular tourist attractions in this town is the Ocean Trail, a linear park with views of the ocean along its trails. Another interesting fact about the town is; since the end of the 18th century, it has long been a popular vacation destination. It’s not hard to tell actually since there are plenty of vintage houses scattered around the town. There are plenty of accommodations in the area, but not all of them accept pets. But, don’t worry - here’s a list of the ones that do. Read on to find out about the top pet-friendly vacation rentals in Bar Harbor, Maine.

Maine is best enjoyed from an old-fashioned cottage, like this one. The house allows guests to bring their pets as long as they are well-trained.

The classic kitchen and the living room really bring the house together. In the morning, wash yourself in the shower then use the washing machine to do your laundry. After you’ve explored the nearby stores and eateries, which are all pet-friendly, take your pet with you to cozy up by a gas fireplace.

A vacation with your pet in this house is going to be a great one. This home has a kitchen that comes complete with cooking utilities and a big table for eating together.

If you prefer the coziness of a home accommodation instead of the more lavish options, consider this six-person rental with two bedrooms. The large lounge room is super comfortable with the fireside and plush sofa. Prepare some meals for you and your family to enjoy in the dining area. In the afternoon, take your dog to explore plenty of natural beauties in the nearby area. An afternoon in Maine calls for a cookout with your loved ones. Hence, grill some meat on the charcoal grill and enjoy them on the expansive deck. Need some spices for the barbeque? Head to the kitchen where you’ll find cooking supplies. Guests can park their car with ease since the parking spot is just steps away from the premises.

Traveling with a large group is not a problem. Check out this house that sleeps up to 10 people. This cottage offers views of the ocean and plenty of space in the living room. Three bedrooms and bathrooms are available in the house, so you don’t have to fight for your room. When the tide sinks to its lowest level, you can have your own pebbly shore. Light up the fire pit and make some good campfire smores while you watch the mesmerizing surrounding. When you stay here, it’s fun to go on hiking and biking in Acadia National Park with your furry companion. A thorough disinfecting routine is performed after every guest’s stay to ensure that the home is clean from the dirt of previous guests’ pets.

Not a fan of houses with over-the-top amenities? You’ll love a simpler option like this home. Clean and homey furniture populate the home.

Come home to a lovely abode after a day of exploring Bar Harbor. The house has four bedrooms and two bathrooms with sleeping arrangements for nine people on five beds. The big television and fast Wi-Fi are all yours to enjoy. Feeling adventurous? Take a short drive to reach a scenic hiking trail where you may safely let your pet play around. The 10-foot (3-meter) dining table carved from solid wood will make everyone want to eat together. Before you rest on the plush mattress, take a soak in the bathtub in the bathroom. Stay here if you want a quiet, residential place that isn’t in the busy tourist areas.

A prime option if you want the kind of accommodation that has that “home-sweet-home” feel. Lie back and absorb the beautiful scenery of Maine from the hammock. A fifteen-minute walk is all it takes to reach the nearest beach. Cook in a well-appointed kitchen that comes with cookware and basic condiments. Sink into the plush king bed after going on a sightseeing tour around Maine. The bedroom also features blackout curtains to prevent light from the outside to disturb your sleep. Admire the scenery of stars and trees from the huge windows. Your pets will love the open backyard, as it allows them to roam around freely. Don’t be surprised to find welcome presents upon your arrival.
Once you’ve stayed at home in this lovely home, you’ll find it hard to leave. The front door opens to a warm living area with a television. Gaze at Bar Harbor sunset with a glass of wine in hand from the tree-top deck. The house is supplemented with nice features that add an extra layer of comfort to your stay. These amenities include a barbeque grill for that cookout that you’ve been dreaming about with your friends. Though the interiors look nothing special, the surrounding nature surely is. The large fenced garden allows guests to let their pets run around without worry.
