HOUSE WITH WATER VIEW AND FIREPLACE ON DECK

Bernard House Rental Photos and Description

2 bedrooms, 1 full bathroom, 1 half bathroom, outdoor shower, sleeps 5, internet

On a private wooded lot with views of Blue Hill Bay, this custom-built house with many windows and a 'floating ceiling' is designed to make you feel as though you are living in a painting. In addition to a well-equipped kitchen, glass doors from the living room and master bedroom with a King bed opens to a deck which has a large stone fireplace. The other bedroom has a Queen and you have a view of the front gardens.

The village of Bernard is a short walk away. A trail through the woods takes you to Thurston's Wharf for lobster dinner or to Island Astronomy for some star-gazing. Back Beach is excellent for rock hunting, investigating tidal pools or an evening bonfire. Try scuba diving, biking park trails, kayaking or any of the other adventures Acadia National Park offers. Two bedrooms: one queen and one full-sized bed. One full and one half bath.

Suitability:
  • suitable for elderly or infirm
  • children welcome
  • pets considered

Perfect Maine Vacation

  • 5 of 5
We have a new standard in vacation rentals. We don't use numbers or stars. Our top ranking will now be called "Marty's Place" after our weeklong stay in August 2009. This home on the quiet side of Mt. Desert Island came as advertised. It was the perfect spot for early morning wanderings through the woods and along the shore of Bass Harbor and environs. We spent successive evenings in efforts to create the perfect s'mores at the fireplace out on the deck. There we were serenaded by bullfrogs in the pond that lies between the house and the beach. We watched the full moon rose through the trees. "Marty's Place" is also a great base from which to visit Acadia National Park for hiking, bicycling, kayaking, and swimming; Southwest Harbor, Southeast Harbor, Bar Harbor and the other communities of the island. "Marty's Place" is part of the village of Bernard with the village of Bass Harbor close at hand. A great little library is a 5-minute walk from the house with antiques, local crafts, art galleries, lobster fishing docks also a short walk away. There are many, many eateries on the Quiet Side but we often neglected them in favor of building family meals in the kitchen and on the grill and eating on the deck or, if there was a little rain, in the comfortable dining room. Our recommendation? Next time it just might be two weeks at "Marty's Place."

Perfect home base with all we needed!

  • 5 of 5
This was our first time to Maine. When we were researching places to stay, we wanted a "quintessential Maine experience." Well, the Lyon's Den was just that!! We were so glad that we decided to stay on the Quiet Side of MDI - it was so quaint, beautiful and, yes, QUIET. The views from the house were gorgeous - water, boats, trees, flowers, rock beaches. There are plenty of great little eateries close by in SW Harbor, Bass Harbor and, of course, THURSTON'S!! The house itself was just perfect - we had everything we needed and it was a very comfortable and well-appointed home base for all of our daily activities (which involved a lot of lobster!!). The living room was comfy and inviting with great views (and a great couch on which to watch Red Sox games!). Both bedrooms were comfortable and roomy with great linens. The bathroom was gigantic and the towels were so soft and fluffy. The kitchen has pretty much any kind of gadget, utensil, cookware, etc. that you might need for your stay. We were so excited about the outdoor fireplace, too, but alas, we never got to use it......but a great perk for chilly summer nights! We hit the jackpot on this one and enjoyed every minute of our stay. Thank you, Marty, for sharing your wonderful home with us AND our dogs (who enjoyed their stay as well).

Simply amazing

  • 5 of 5
Beautiful house with breathtaking views from the windows and the back porch. Bought lobster, clams and mussels from the local lobster pound everyday for dinner. the kitchen is beautiful and has everything you could possibly need to cook meals. We ate breakfast and dinner everyday in the house. The owner was very hospitable and accommodating. We walked around the back and my boyfriend went fishing while I collected seashells. He actually caught a fish and we had it for dinner! Great way to end our first vacation in Maine and it couldn't have been more perfect.

Better than Expeceted

  • 5 of 5
You always wonder if the pictures will match up with the actual property, right? The price just seems too good to be true. I can tell you that this property was a delight. The pictures really do not show you the beauty of the property. Everything was clean, well maintained and fully equiped. There are floor to ceiling windows that let the light flow in, even on a foggy day. There are two bedrooms, each about the same size, with the bathroom more or less in between them. There is a great deck that sits in the middle of the house that you can see from either the living room or the the back bedroom. We bought plenty of "camp wood" to use in the outdoor fireplace, which was so relaxing after a long day. I hate to admit this but I am pretty picky. I have been known to call and request that a property be recleaned or at least cleaned before I unpack. On a trip my husband does not upack until I've checked the room and bathroom. I just really feel you should get what you think you are paying for. I had no such issues with this house, even the furniture is comfy and clean. It feels like you are visiting friends and they just left you the keys to their house. It takes you just a couple of minutes to walk to the ocean if your so inclined but I bet you'll just sit on the deck and watch the boats go by. We had a couple of foggy days and could hear the fog horns but not see the boats so when it cleared it was amazing to see the Ferry turning past the point. The location of the house REALLY is on the quite side of the island which we really enjoyed but the drive to Bar Harbor is 15 to 20 minutes and only because of the speed limit and narrow roads. There are plenty of places to eat or shop if your so inclinded, within a 5 minute drive of the house, including Bass Harbor which has a grocery store and a very nice specialty market.
The owner Marty even contacted us to make sure everything was as expected and that we didn't need anything, which I thought was considerate. I could tell you a lot more but your just going to have to experience it yourself. I only have one negative thing to say and that is, we just did not have enough time to enjoy the house to its fulliest because we were always out exploring Acadia National Park. I would love to come back and just stay at the house. Hopefully we will be able to do that in the near future.

Owner's Response: With the beauty of Mount Desert Island and Acadia National Park I have a challenge to match such beauty with my own properties.
When I receive positive reviews about my properties I have feel I have complimented my magnificent surroundings. It is part of the service I wish to provide. I hope by making the houses comfortable inside and out, families visiting Mount Desert Island will return again.
Again thanks Georgia Meachum for such a positive review.

Well worth it!!

  • 5 of 5
The Lyons Den was beautiful! It was everything we could have hoped for and more. Amazing views from the house and lots of privacy. We brought our children (ages 14, 12, and 9) and they really enjoyed walking to back beach and catching snails in the yard. The house is equipped with everything you need, and it was so much fun to walk to Thurstons Lobster Pound and pick up live lobsters to cook at the house. The owner Marty was extremely helpful and even stopped in once to make sure we didn't need anything else! Our stay was so relaxing that my husband is sold on the idea of retiring to "the quiet side" of Mount Desert Island!
