SPACIOUS MANSION HOUSE COTTAGE -WATER VIEWS

Bar Harbor House Rental Photos and Description

House, 12 Bedrooms, 6.5 Baths, (Sleeps 20)

This house is great for family reunions. It is very private, located close to and between the town of Bar Harbor and Acadia National Park.

This magnificent and peaceful 12-bedroom summer house was built in 1914.

Situated above Frenchman Bay with over 12 acres of woodlands behind it, Sols Cliff House enjoys some of the most magnificent views on Mt. Desert Island. On its inland side, the house has views of Acadia National Park's mountains for which the island is so well known. The house is located a mile from Bar Harbor, is accessed by a long private driveway, and offers three floors of comfort and privacy. With 12 bedrooms and 6.5 bathrooms, the house sleeps up to 20 people if two roll away beds are used. It also includes a large dining room, a large living room, library, kitchen, butler's pantry and laundry room, six fireplaces (with the four on the ground floor available for use), a second floor porch overlooking the water, a long terrace along the water side of the house, two sheltered picnic areas in Italian style loggia and a large, detached game house.

As one of the last remaining Summer Cottages that were numerous in the Bar Harbor area before the great fire of 1947, the house still has many of its original details. Various renovations have endeavored to keep the historical character while adding modern convenience.

Total capacity: 20 (if king, queen and double beds have two people each and the two roll away beds are used.)

FIRST FLOOR: Grand, brick-floored entry foyer with fireplace offers splendid views through glass-paneled doors to the brick terrace and Frenchman Bay beyond. Spacious formal living room with fireplace and French doors (seven sets) leading to the terrace and outer grounds is wonderful for entertaining. Satellite television with DVD and VCR. Large dining room with fireplace and seating for up to 22, also with direct access via French doors to outside dining area and terrace with views of the bay, islands and Egg Rock Lighthouse. Warm and comfortable library with fireplace, several shelves of books and stereo. Butler's pantry, kitchen with seating for nine. Adjacent sitting and playroom for children with television and DVD and VCR. Laundry room. Half bath and small fax room off foyer.

SECOND FLOOR: Master bedroom suite with king bed, fireplace, walk-in closet/changing room and private bath with tub and shower. A porch with beautiful water views adjoins the master suite. Bedroom with queen bed and water views shares a bath with double bedroom also with water views. Bedroom with double bed, fireplace and water views shares bath with bedroom with two twin beds, also with water views. Bedroom with queen bed and private full bath with tub and shower, also with doorway to back wing hallway. Second master bedroom suite with king bed, water views, adjacent full bath with tub and shower and nursery with two cribs. Four more bedrooms with single beds and shared bath are in the former helper's wing. Two roll away beds to be placed where desired.

PORCH/DECK: Large brick terrace with furnishings offers unparalleled views of water, outlying islands and mainland beyond. Upper porch off Master Bedroom suite (see above). Sheltered outdoor picnic table in Italianate loggia style.

DETACHED GAME HOUSE: Out the back door, a facility for full court badminton, wall tennis, basketball and general recreation, especially good for rainy days.

Truly a gem

  • 5 of 5
Our time at your house beginning the week of August 2 was a wonderful experience. We celebrated our 50th anniversary by having our three girls, their husbands, and nine grandchildren ages 24 to 12. It couldn't have been a better place to celebrate. The boys had a great time playing basketball in the out building, especially on the one rainy afternoon that we had. One evening one of the boys played his guitar in the library with a fire and we sang songs and danced. Each morning we had coffee looking at Frenchmans bay. Most days were spent exploring the park. All 17 of us used Atlantic Climbing School and went rock climbing at Otter Cliffs.

Your house was a perfect location for our family, and it is truly a treasure.

A Week in Bar Harbor with friends and family

  • 5 of 5
I finally have a moment to sit down and tell you what a great stay we had at Sol's Cliff! The house was wonderful. We had more than enough room with our group of 20. The kitchen and dining room were great for the group. We did cook in a bunch of evenings. The amount of pots, pans, serving dishes, etc. was very accommodating (but a few more larger mixing bowls would have been great). My husband loved the stove, grill and the propane cooker for the large lobster pot. One of my favorites was the view from the cliff. We spent a lot of time out there! Morning coffee, afternoon reading, happy hour and late night star gazing. We had a number of chances to explore the trail down to the water. We even took a late evening hike and saw a fabulous owl on the way back.
