Default Maine coast vacation rental needed

My wife and I are looking for a vacation rental to use for 5 days or so, starting around June 1, 2019. We are looking for a place with easy access to Bar Harbor. 1 bed, a bath, washer and dryer is all we need. We are members of VRBO and AB&B but thought someone may want to rent under the radar. My wife has never been north of NYC and I was in Castine in 1984. We want to soak in some Maine coast atmosphere and swat some black flies. Please PM if interested.

A bit more back woodish but I could recommend Hadley Point campground if you want to rough it in a cabin. They rent cabins within the campground that are basically 4 walls and a bed, you have to bring everything else.

If you find a house, almost anywhere on the island has easy access to public bus routes. Buses are routine, plentiful and free (donations accepted). During the summer the downtown area is loaded with people up until about 10:00, then it starts winding down.

If you go, send me a PM and I'll fill you on my favorite things on the island. I've gone for 1-week every year, for the last 10 years, but we pull a house up there.

Real nice luxury camp cabins (think nice rv ) at KOA Bar harbor Oceanside. Or a little more rustic and
quiet . Bass Harbour campground .We love the "potting shed" they have chalet style cabins with lofts .
W hat ever you do book now . Mt. Desert Island books fast .Real fast.
Your better 1/2 will love it . 1 of my favorite places on earth.
