Bernard House is a two story seven room historical home in the fishing village of Bernard, on Bass Harbor, Mount Desert Island. Located just 20 minutes from Bar Harbor and close to Acadia National Park. The cottage sits on an outcropping of ledge above the lane and is surrounded by just under an acre of lawns, moss covered ledges and forest. The open floor plan allows views through floor to ceiling windows and the decks surrounding the first floor maintain privacy. There are two bedrooms on the second floor, a full kitchen, dining room, sun room, and living room with granite fireplace, as well as a full bathroom and office on the first floor. Even in inclement weather this home remains bright and enjoyable!
Quintessential Maine cottage overlooking beautiful Bass Harbor. The views are great and the cottage is very clean and comfortable with all that you could ask for in a vacation rental. Everything in the cottage is as described. The yard and the gardens are so pretty. A short drive to see and do all that Acadia has to offer then peace and quiet for that perfect night's sleep. Check out the night sky from the deck on a clear night for a star studded experience that will amaze you! We will definitely stay here again and would recommend it to friends and family. Do not miss out on the great hikes/walks on the many carriage paths within the park, or our favorite--a picnic at Otter Point.
