Bar Harbor House Rental Photos and Description
House, 4 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 8-12)
This is an another important year for Highbrook House as of December 15th 2012, we completed our kitchen renovation. Last year we added new stainless steel appliances in the kitchen. As part of our kitchen upgrade there are new cabinets, lighting, pantry and Granite Counter tops. Be one of the first to stay with us this year and enjoy a beautiful new kitchen.
If you have never been to Bar Harbor before and even if you have, I am sure you would want to be in a great location. Highbrook has it all!! Do you want to go into the village? No problem, you can walk because it's a short stroll of 10 to 15 minutes - OR - you can stand at the end of my driveway and the Island Explorer will pick you up - OR - you can drive. But don't get too comfortable because it's only 30 seconds away.
I am sure one of the reasons you want to visit is because of Acadia National Park. Can't get much better because the very popular Cadillac Mountain, Duck Brook and Eagle Lake entrances are right around the corner. About 10 seconds away. Even though you are very close to all of the key locations, Highbrook rests on almost an acre of land and is very peaceful and serene.
After a great day in the park, relax and enjoy a barbecue on the back deck or sip a lemonade on the patio. No one will see you. It's a great area for children because it's a residential area with only the locals using Highbrook road.
For your dining and entertaining all dishes, flatware, glasses, bowls, platters, pots and pans, cooking utensils, linens, towels are provided for your convenience. The house has everything you will need to cook up a storm.

About The Owner
If your like me you hate talking about yourself. Do I talk about my profession? Bar harbor? Sports? Well I guess I should stick to the topic of why I am here. I've discovered that I enjoy vacation rentals and Bar Harbor. In my career I am in health care (yes the dreaded words today) and this other side of my life becoming involved in this industry is so different than my current profession but I enjoy talking to everyone who calls or e-mails me. Most of all I enjoy talking to you about Bar Harbor. I have hiked every trail, biked every road and enjoyed the area in spring, summer, fall and even winter. The beauty of the area never ceases to amaze me which is why I keep coming back.

Why The Owner chose Bar Harbor
I love Bar Harbor and Acadia National Park. It's a special place where the park meets the ocean and the scenary is spectacular. I came to this area 25 years ago for vacation and decided that I wanted to retire here and enjoy the present and the future. I have been blessed to have the opportunity to do just that. Everytime I come up here I come back a new person. But it gets harder and harder to leave. Someday my ship will come in and I will be here forever.
What makes this house unique
My first rental in Bar Harbor was at a house just around the corner from where Highbrook is located. When the house went up for sale I tried to buy it because I loved the location. Lucky for me that I was able to purchase Highbrook. The house is in a perfect location because I can walk into town, take the Island Explorer from my driveway, I'm around the corner from Eagle Lake, Cadillac Mountain and the Duck Brook entrances to the park, but yet I'm resting on almost an acre of land. I also wanted a house that had everything in it... my home away from home. Houses that I used to rent didn't have microwaves or even can openers... sometimes it's the little things that make one comfortable. That was a promise when I bought my house that it would have everything a family needs to enjoy their stay...... and the tradition continues today.
