A lovely, immaculate home that is perfect if you want a location that is quiet and feels "off the beaten path" but still offers proximity to the park and downtown Bar Harbor. The house is right on top of one of the park entrances and a five-minute car ride from downtown (or walkable if you prefer). This was our first visit to Mount Desert Island and we had looked into staying in some of the "quieter," less populated areas of the island, but after seeing some of those areas during our visit, they are definitely further from the park and from sites like Bar Island, as well as from amenities like restaurants and a major grocery store. The house offered the serenity and peace of the quieter areas of the island with easy access to amenities.
The two separate living areas in the house make it great for families, with a master bed and bath on the first floor and two full bedrooms with a shared bath on the floor below. The owner, Bob, was responsive and helpful, and lives nearby if you need him for any reason.
My husband and I ran out of vacation before we could get through even half the things we wanted to see and do in the park and Mount Desert Island. It's a beautiful place, the house was terrific, and we hope to return!
