What Jen Loves About Honeybee

Situated in a small quiet residential neighborhood in the heart of Bar Harbor and just a stones throw from the grocery store, the Honeybee House is a historic 1920’s home that was completely renovated in 2007 with a more functional open floor plan and bright big kitchen. New to the rental market as of 2014, we updated the home with new furniture, new linens, and fresh paint colors. 

Featuring a lovely yard with a vibrant flower garden that compliments the deck with picnic table and gas grill, a large furnished glassed-in sun porch welcomes you into the house. Downstairs is the living room with ample seating, a spacious modern open kitchen, breakfast bar, dining area, and full bathroom. A door from the kitchen leads to the grill area and deck.  With the proximity to the grocery store, this arrangement is a cooking enthusiasts delight providing the opportunity for some wonderful family meals. 

The second floor is the sleeping area with 3 bedrooms and a full bath. The master bedroom has a king and stunning handcrafted cherry wardrobe; the second bedroom is a custom queen over queen bunk bed, allowing for 1 or 2 couples or a gaggle of kids; and the third bedroom has a queen. The Honeybee House is just the right combination of quiet yet convenient, with ample space and historic charm, yet an affordable rental price..  

Rental includes: Fully Equipped Kitchen, House Linens, Wireless Internet, Flat screen with Direct TV service, DVD player and AV Computer connection, Local Phone, Washer/Dryer, Gas Grill, Puzzles, Indoor Games

The house had everything we needed for a comfortable stay for our family (3 adult sisters and our parents). I searched a long time for a house that met our requirements (4 separate beds, 2 full baths, in town). The Honeybee house fit our needs perfectly. The location was great: on a quiet residential street and very easy walking distance to everything in town, including the free Acadia shuttle bus. The house was very nicely updated and the custom made furniture in the bedrooms was a beautiful touch. I would stay again and highly recommend Honeybee house.

The Honeybee Cottage was a perfect base for our trip to MDI and Acadia. We loved the location being able to walk to restaurants, ice cream, and shops each evening after our day’s hiking or sailing adventure. We appreciated how much care and thought Jen has obviously put into the home’s décor and amenities. The welcome package with tips for restaurants and activities was very helpful. We felt immediately at home! P.S. The flower garden in front is amazing.

First time visitors to Maine and Bar Harbor and we had a busy but wonderful vacation exploring all that BH and MDI has to offer! After hiking, biking and lots of walking it was so nice to come “home” to the adorable Honeybee House. Plenty of room to cook, relax, read and play games. We also admired your beautiful flower garden our front each and every day. We recommend the Honeybee House and hope to visit Maine again soon.
