Bar Harbor House Rental Photos and Description

1 bedroom, 1 full bath, suitable for a couple

Enjoy a private week of romance and relaxation. The secluded home is in a park-like setting, situated on a knoll some 75 feet from a dramatic granite cliff with steps down to the private cobble beach below. The home is a classic New England broken-back saltbox. While unassuming in its exterior appearance, guests have been taken with the exceptional post and beam construction. Massive red oak beams frame the entire house. Wide plank pine flooring, traditional colonial trim, antique furniture, and an expansive loft with a palladium window provide guests with the kind of warm and comfortable surroundings that so befit a coastal Maine vacation. Large windows allow in sunshine and the natural beauty of the outdoors. Views of Frenchman Bay are apparent from almost every room. The romantic first floor bedroom has been furnished with 1830's country furniture, including a classic Pennsylvania rope bed. In 2012 the house was renovated to include new bathroom, entrance way, windows and doors, microwave and stove.

Nature Abounds!: If you are interested in nature, the property has much to offer. Several acres of beautiful woods provide a home for red fox, hare, red squirrel, pine martin, and deer, who all come to visit. Bald eagles soar over Frenchman Bay, and rocks exposed at low tide are frequented by harbor seals. Other visitors have included peregrine falcon, osprey, loon, eider, nuthatch, chickadee, pileated, and other woodpeckers. And in the spring and fall, flocks of migrating warblers may drop in. Nesting birds include blue-headed vireo; black-throated green, Nashville, magnolia and blackburnian warblers as well as woodpeckers and other species. Those taking the time to occasionally look out over Frenchman Bay may be treated to a remarkable sight. While infrequent in the western portion of the bay, harbor porpoise do make an occasional appearance.

Value!: We believe that we are offering the best combination of location, amenities, and price. This can be attested to by the fact that for some years, 80% of our guests have been returning couples. Honeymooners return for their anniversary, and anniversary couples have returned for yet another anniversary.

The reason that our pricing compares so favorably is that we choose to only rent to couples. The second floor bed and bath are generally not available to guests. With prior approval, an additional guest may be accommodated.

Reservations!: If you wish to make a reservation, the rental fee must be paid in full and a signed Weekly Lodging Agreement must be submitted at the same time. In addition, a security deposit of $250.00 must be received no later than 30 days prior to occupancy. It will be returned by regular mail within one week after satisfactory inspection of the properly. Should you change your plans, we provide a a total refund minus a $10.00 handling fee if we can find someone to take your place. However, this is not always possible, so trip insurance may be a good idea.

Brochure, Weekly Lodging Agreement, and copies of comments from our guest book available upon request.

Awesome property...

  • 5 of 5
Saw this property listed and loved the "look and feel". The only thing that concerned me was that it seemed very inexpensive related to other listings for that area. Called the contact number and spoke to Ingrid...she seemed very nice...so, we booked a week. The house/location was outstanding...away from the crowds on a quiet bluff, but, close to everything we were interested in doing. The deck at the cobble beach was a great place to hike down to for morning coffee and sunrise. We saw some seals and eagles. Acadia National Park is a wonderful place to hike/bike. We went kayaking with Maine State Sea Kayak in Southwest Harbor (about a 20 minute drive). They were recommended in National Geographic...and now we know why. If you're going to visit Acadia, and you're looking for a place to stay...check this place out. It's the best deal in the area...and nicer than anything else we saw.

Memories from 2002 stay

  • 5 of 5
There was no ability to write a review on the computer when my husband and I stayed here 8 years ago but I often look back to see if it is possible and I see that I can.My husband and I stayed here for our honeymoon 8 years ago and had such a wonderful experience! The house was beautiful and clean and had plenty of space for the 2 of us. The grounds were amazing...the ability to walk to the water was wonderful. it was great just for the exercise of walking up and down the steps and being able to stop and sit for a bit on the way up and down. The location of the house was perfect. We could come and go easily to do so many fun thing, watch sunrises and sunsets on the mountain, eat at all the wonderful resturants in town and go for walks and bike rides. We had a truly amazing stay at this house and are hoping to return for our 10th anniversary!

Peace and Tranquility in Maine

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I absolutely loved the Wright Hulls Cove house! We celebrated our 21st anniversary on Octover 21, 2009 at this lovely home and could not have asked for a more perfect setting. The house is situated on a private road in a beautiful wooded setting overlooking Frenchman Bay. The senerity of nature and design of the house just took our breath away. The huge windows and glass door gave us an unsurpassed view of nature and the beautiful fall foliage. We especially loved seeing the red squarrels, chipmunks and birds from the dining room area as we ate breakfast. We actually saw more wildlife here than we did at Acadia National park! The loft in the house with the arch designed windows gave us a picture perfect view of Frenchman Bay. The close proximity to Bar Harbor, Frenchman Bay and other activities but yet the seclusion made this house the perfect romantic location. The high beams and colonial decor enhanced the character and beauty of the house. We are definitely looking forward to staying at this gorgeous house again on our return visit to Bar Harbor.
