All the best waits for you in Bar Harbor

The natural beauty that surrounds Bar Harbor is dotted with ocean cliffs and rocky beaches, lakes and valleys created by glaciers, unbroken mountain views and boreal forest. Thomas Cole, Frederic Edwin Church, Fitz Henry Lane, and many other great artists captured this elegance. Acadia National Park is accessible right from the downtown Bar Harbor area. This park is one of the most visited national parks in the US and is an area preserved in perpetuity, thanks to the generosity of American business magnate John D. Rockefeller Jr. and other wealthy landowners. It features miles of roads free of motor vehicles and 16 stone-faced bridges, each special in their nature, designed by Rockefeller to allow visitors to easily explore the park. Another of the many distinctive features of the park is Cadillac Mountain, the highest point on the seaboard of the North Atlantic and the first location in the United States to see the sunrise during fall and winter. Make a point of booking one of these top Vrbo in Bar Harbor, Maine, and you’ll get the chance to see the best of this state in one quaint community. They’re waiting for you!
