OCEANFRONT LUXURY VACATION RENTAL - BAR HARBOR / ACADIA NATIONAL PARK

Bar Harbor Estate Rental Photos and Description

Elegant 4 bedroom, 4 1/2 bath, oceanfront home in Bar Harbor, sleeps 10

This formal oceanfront single-family home, having a market value approaching $2 million, has welcomed discriminating families/individuals from the US and abroad for 16 years. For 100+ photos, see: OceansEdgeMaine website. Summary: (a) oceanfrontage; (b) 4 bedrooms, each with private bath, sleeps 10 -- 2nd-story bedrooms offer French doors & walk-out decks overlooking ocean. (c) Large, renovated kitchen; library sanctuary; formal dining room; (d) satellite TV and wireless internet connection. (e) Privacy, solitude: 1.5 acres, on private road, in exclusive and historic Hulls Cove neighborhood. (f) 1-mile walking/bicycling distance to official entrance to Acadia National Park's 30,000 acres, including 100 miles of paths/trails and ponds/lakes. (g) 4 eating areas (2 outside); 3 decks/patios; (h) 3 fireplaces; (i) 6 french doors with expansive ocean views of: Cadiilac Mtn range, BH waterfont, cruise ship basin, North Atlantic beyond .(Now taking reservations for Fall 2011, and 2012)

Location: The property is located within the Town of Bar Harbor, on Lookout Point Road above Hulls Cove. Lookout Point Road is an historic and elegant neighborhood of perhaps a dozen homes. Lookout Point Road overlooks Frenchmans Bay and the North Atlantiic. The subject property begins at a pink-granite walled entrance on that road, and then slopes down, for perhaps 1,000' under white pines past a pond to the house itself. The house fronts on the ocean. The home faces directly south toward: the oncoming sea breezes, the Town harbor and its boat basin, and the cruise-line ship traffic which moors in full view. Views from the house also include: the Cadillac Mountain range, the Porcupine Islands, Egg Rock lighthouse in the distance, and the North Atlantic beyond. Lookout Point Road joins Route 3, the main highway connecting the mainland with Mount Desert Island. MDI includes Bar Harbor, 3 other towns, and the predominant Acadia National Park.

Surrounding properties: Acadia National Park comprises tens of thousands of acres of walking trails, lakes, ponds, and both salt water and fresh water beaches for swimming and fishing. The gateway to the Park is just one mile from our property. Acadia is the 2nd most-visited on the National Parks because Bar Harbor and the Island are considered among the most beautiful places in North America. The Park was encouraged by Teddy Roosevelt, organized by Harvard visionaries, and largely capitalized by the Rockefellers. Beyond the gateway to the Park, and still traveling south on Route 3 from the subject property, along the cliffs above the ocean, one encounters the Bar Harbor Yacht Club (visible from our property across Hulls Cove), then a collection of hotels and resorts that include the Town's best restaurants and bars and athletic facilities (e.g., the Regency where President Obama stayed in 2010), and then the 125-year old mansions on West Street andMain Street's commercial areas.

Past and Present, and 2012: A NYC socialite iniitially constructed the house, with formal entertaining in mind. She occupied the property briefly, along with a staff that would now be an anachronism. The present owners have owned the property for 35 years, leasing it for 15 years. It is one of the best rental properties of its kind on the Maine Coast. Main features include immediate frontage on the ocean, views of sunrises and moonrises over the ocean, and what Frank Sinatra would call a 'summer wind'. This is a luxury-home, turnkey arrangement. A housekeeper fully prepares the house and offers to greet guests at the door when they arrive. Although we do not usually involve brokers and do not advertise extensively, we are routinely fully booked for each season, with some prime weeks booked a year in advance.

The property is located on the ocean, in the Hulls Cove neighborhood, in the Town of Bar Harbor. Bar Harbor is the largest and most historic community on Mount Desert Island, in 'Downeast' Coastal Maine. Mount Desert Island's approximately 30,000 acres are chiefly comprised of the Acadia National Park. Acadia rightfully claims to be one of the most beautiful scenic treasures in America, featuring both stunning ocean landscapes and mountainous woodlands undiminished by time or by man. Bar Harbor and Mt. Desert Island offer: superior bars and restaurants, night clubs, nearby athletic facilities, a nationally renowned and stunningly beautiful public golf course (Kebo), immediate proximity to the Park's salt and fresh water beaches, convenient and abundant connections to airports in Bangor and Trenton, whale watching, deep sea fishing, sailing, antique shopping and L.L. Beans nearby, and signature lobsters night and day. (Homeaway software blocks spacing for paragraphs).

Other Activities: Acadia National Park

Golf: The nearby Kebo Valley Club is available to the public. The fabled 'Kebo' is stunningly beautiful, historic, and challenging.

Ski: Mount Desert Island's 30,000-acre Acadia National Park is world renown for cross country skiing in visually spectacular surroundings during the holidays and throughout the winter months.
