Mount Desert House Rental Photos and Description
3 -4 bedrooms, 3-4 full bathrooms, sleeps 10-12. On free bus route!
Beautifully remodeled 3 bedroom/ 2 bath farmhouse. Nestled in a quiet field overlooking Gorham Mountain. This house is just 1 mile from hiking and biking in Acadia National Park or lying on the beach. Just 4 miles from Bar Harbor on the free public transportation loop. Great location for day and evening activities or just sitting and watching sunsets off the back deck. Recent kitchen and bath remodels great for large families. Relax on the deck, while taking in the mountains, sunset and moon rise. Great place for children. Brand new hot tub outside on the back deck. Wood floors throughout. The downstairs is very sunny and open. Because this is our real home, the kitchen is fully stocked with all the basics plus many extras. The master bedroom has its own marbled tile bathroom with a large shower. There is a den on the first floor that has a very cozy pullout couch (seriously, I bought it for MY parents) and bathroom right next to it, for those not comfortable going up and down stairs. In the bathrooms, soaps and shampoos are provided, as flying with theses items is so difficult! Our home is simple, but the linens and towels are always of high quality, so you feel spoiled on your vacation. As nurses we keep it VERY CLEAN! There is an apartment as well for those who need an extra bedroom, or a bit more privacy. The apartment is a walkout basement one, with planty of light. It is very peaceful down there.

About Angie and Chris
We are a married couple who work as Nurse Practitioners in the area. We have been renting out our home in the summer for the past several years. We started doing this when we moved away for a three year stint. When we returned, people still called, wanting our home back in the summer. We have had a great time renting our home, and have met wonderful people along the way.
Angie and Chris purchased this house in 1998
Why Angie and Chris chose Mount Desert
We have always loved Acadia National Park. When I graduated college, I knew I wanted to stay in the area. As a kayak guide for 10 years, I wanted to be near the ocean. From our house I can hear the bell bouy in Otter Cove. I never get over the veiw of sunrise from our bedroom windows. I havent always loved our home. As a 100 year old farmhouse, it had gone through several renovations over the years. It has been an ongoing progect, that we are finally winning! Renting out our property has helped us fund these projects along the way. We just put on a new wrap aroun deck and air sealed the basement and kitchen ceiling!
We have a wonderful location that is peaceful, yet close to town. The house is spacious with lots of stuff for the kids to do. There is a den, living room, large kitchen and sunroom all on the first floor. Even on a rainy day one would not feel like you were all on top of each other. If you need the extra privacy, there is the added apartment downstairs. We love dogs, and they are welcome, but we also have allergies and ask that you pay an extra cleaning fee and keep them off the furniture. Acadia is a great place for dogs! As is our huge back yard!
