About this listing

A one bedroom apartment in the center of Mount Desert Island. Modern design and amenities in a 150 year old barn.

The space

Enter the common room/ kitchen area directly through the main double doors. Full kitchen, storage closet, day bed with trundle and eating area at the table. Washer and dryer in nearby closet.
Walk through to the bedroom with comfy Queen size bed, large closet and access to the bathroom.
A large shelving unit leaves you room for your suitcase and holds some great reading material we have left for you - a selection of summer reading and books about the area.
The bathroom includes a smaller shower unit, toilet and sink. A hair dryer and some basic toiletries are included.
Also reached from the bedroom, a small outside seating area. Privacy provided by wooden fencing and greenery.

Guest access

The barn apartment is attached to our house through a utility room, but the space is completely yours while you are here. With separate entry and parking, you might not even see us!

Interaction with guests

I am happy to help with suggestions! We love to hike and explore nearby Acadia National Park, so we know it well. We also love the local restaurants, and can offer plenty of food suggestions as well as information on other attractions.

Other things to note

WE ARE ON A MAIN ROAD. The barn sits just behind a tall fence on a main road. The speed limit is 25, and the area is generally quiet at night. During the busy summer months there is traffic noise during the day, early morning and late afternoon. On the plus side, this road puts us almost directly in the center of the island. It is one of the easiest places from which to access all this island has to offer. Bar Harbor is a 15 minutes drive, Southwest Harbor 10 minutes, and Northeast Harbor about 12.

This house is conveniently located close to Bar Harbor and Acadia National Park in a beautiful and safe area. There is one parking spot in front which was big enough to accommodate our SUV with a hitch and two bikes on back. Washer and dryer came in handy for those long days out getting dirty hiking and biking. Bed was comfortable. We had a great time and can't wait to come back! Thanks for hosting us!

The location was great and convenient to both sides of the island and hiking trails . The converted barn was tidy and spacious and was the perfect spot for our stay at Acadia !

Emily's converted barn was perfect for our short trip to MDI! Charming interior, very comfortable, and had everything we needed to cook and feel very much at home. Convenient location for easy access to both sides of the island. We had time to visit a few of Emily's suggested hikes and restaurants and they were spot-on. After getting a sense of the area, I can't imagine staying anywhere else!

Very cute apartment! Perfectly located in the center of Mt. Desert Island. The kitchen was very well stocked and functional, and, although tight, the apartment fit our family of four comfortably. We would definitely come back to stay again!!

The description was accurate: the place is very simple and tastefully furnished. It has a good cooking facilities, spotlessly clean. It is centrally located to towns and hiking. The road noise is pretty loud during the day (but quiets down after 8 o'clock ) so it's perfect for getting you up and out early to the beautiful Acadia National Park, just minutes away. We didn't use the free shuttle bus service (that stops right at the house and goes all over the island) but it looks like a great chance to be car free, probably a must in the high season.
