Bar Harbor House Rental Photos and Description

House, 3 Bedrooms + Detached Bunkhouse, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 10)

Book this three-bedroom cottage on this spruce-covered spot in Frenchman Bay, well ahead of time. The master suite has spectacular sea views, a four-poster bed, and a whirlpool. The wood-burning fireplace in the living room is cozy on foggy nights, while the wraparound porch makes for good afternoon bird-watching, when gulls and osprey swoop along the shoreline.

This property is a one of a kind. An island that has only you and your private Captain and host. There is no one else on the five and-a-half-acre island. If you want privacy this is the place to stay in Maine, and your private captain makes Bar Harbor and Acadia National Park only 10 minutes away by boat. For more pictures please visit our website listed below.

With the newly finished Post and Beam home, summer of 2006, you live in luxury. The home is completely unattached from the mainland, with satellite TV, Reverse Osmosis for fresh water and a generator and solar for power you are living on your own. The home is furnished with antiques to create a open cottage feeling.

With a wrap-around covered porch and ocean views for 360 degrees, you are placed in a location where you feel as if you are the only one for hundreds of miles. .

Of course, that is, if you actually want to leave and head into the mainland. With the crew available to cater to your requests and provision the home with foods and drinks that you like what could possibly get in the way of total relaxation.

Guestbook comments from the owner

While we were only able to stay a few days this year, we couldn’t imagine not visiting. As usual, we had a great time. The kids will be sorry to have missed the new, expanded waffle ball field! All our best for an absolutely fabulous wedding! What a great couple you are!

The Perfect Getaway

  • 5 of 5
Can't say enough about how wonderful our stay on Spectacle Island was. Of course, Maine is beautiful, the hikes in Acadia were incredible, etc. etc... that goes without saying. But the hospitality that Jaime and AJ (and Ava!) provided was beyond compare. They clearly care deeply about the island and its guests, and constantly went out of their way to be sure that our stay was perfect in every way. We would stay at Spectacle Island again even if it were on a lake in the middle of Nebraska, just to enjoy the company of our wonderful hosts. The fact that SI is in the middle of one of the most incredible parks in the US just seems like icing on the cake.

Amazing. Awesome. And just nice people.

This was our second trip to Spectacle Island and it was even better than the first time. We stayed 2 weeks, instead of 1, we knew our hosts better, and we had family come and stay at various times. Our hosts AJ and Jaime couldn't possibly be more accommodating. Seals, puffins, porpoises, eagles and ospreys, we saw it all. We hiked at least 8 of the peaks in Acadia NP. We kayaked. We ate lobster and ice cream. We enjoyed a couple quiet days in when it rained. We toured the harbors. It was perfect. And we're booked for next year already. I can't say enough nice things about this property and our time there.
