What a lovely property! My husband and I and our two girls, aged 11 and 13, were immediately enchanted by Gay and George's unique home. My oldest slept in the loft bed, and the younger one loved slepeing on top of her sleeping bag on the wide window seat in the same room. Everything about the house's interesting layout and eclectic decor made us feel immediately comfortable, and we all appreciated the thoughtful amenities - from the hand soaps in the bathrooms to the vases of flowers picked from their garden. I enjoyed several occasions on the wraparound deck...morning coffee, playing cards with my girls, lunch with my guy...and it was so peaceful with the view of the gardens (my little one especially liked watching for butterflies and birds that visited). Although we were only a minute's walk from Main Street (2 minutes from ice cream and 3 from the park and Ocean Trail :), we always felt like we were nested away in nature upon returning to the house. We've been to Bar Harbor twice in the past, but the location and beauty of the Raven's Nest helped make this trip by far our favorite!
