This unique elevated home, with large deck overlooks a beautiful garden but is within walking distance to downtown Bar Harbor with its many restaurants etc. It is also within a few yards of Bar Harbor's Shore Path and the Bus system which accesses the entire Island and Acadia National Park, its hiking trails and carriage paths. The house is kept meticulously clean and has a jacuzzi in one bathroom and a loft bed in one of the bedrooms. A large deck area is perfect for alfresco dining, sunning, stargazing or viewing the fireworks on the 4th of July.

About Gay Lindenmeyer

George and I built this house in 1996. It was a property adjacent to his restaurant GEORGE'S which operated next door from 1978 to 2005. It was sold in 2009 to friends who operate it as a summer rental also but will eventually retire there. George has lived on MDI since 1960 and was a high school teacher until 1988, teaching history, civics, psychology and drama during which time MDIHS won many awards for their plays. George has retired but is ever-busy: right now building a small house to live in next door to this rental.

Gay arrived on MDI in 1975 and fell in love with the Island. She has worked in the school system, as a legal secretary, inn-keeper, cook and jacqueline of all trades. She met George and worked at his restaurant for 18 years. They started up a bakery and restaurant in 1989 together and operated until 1992.

We love working together and can't seem to stop. The new house is our latest project along with our continuing updating and care of Ravensnest and our house in Florida.

We love meeting all the people who come to our house and introducing them to the town and the Island which we love and call our home.

Gay Lindenmeyer purchased this house in 1996

Secluded getaway in the heart of downtown!

  • 5 of 5
We have been vacationing in Bar Harbor for 15 years. When planning our trips we always opt for rental properties. We have stayed in many fine properties in Bar Harbor, but this our new favorite! The house provides a peaceful retreat after a day of hiking or biking. We spent many evenings on the deck enjoying the ocean breezes and garden view. We arrived during a hurricane and the hosts were so accommodating during a power outage providing us with candles, flashlights, etc. The location can't be beat! You are right off the main drag without knowing it. Before we left we booked our stay for the next year! Our search for the best rental property in Bar Harbor ends with this home.

Our best trip to Bar Harbor yet!

  • 5 of 5
What a lovely property! My husband and I and our two girls, aged 11 and 13, were immediately enchanted by Gay and George's unique home. My oldest slept in the loft bed, and the younger one loved slepeing on top of her sleeping bag on the wide window seat in the same room. Everything about the house's interesting layout and eclectic decor made us feel immediately comfortable, and we all appreciated the thoughtful amenities - from the hand soaps in the bathrooms to the vases of flowers picked from their garden. I enjoyed several occasions on the wraparound deck...morning coffee, playing cards with my girls, lunch with my guy...and it was so peaceful with the view of the gardens (my little one especially liked watching for butterflies and birds that visited). Although we were only a minute's walk from Main Street (2 minutes from ice cream and 3 from the park and Ocean Trail :), we always felt like we were nested away in nature upon returning to the house. We've been to Bar Harbor twice in the past, but the location and beauty of the Raven's Nest helped make this trip by far our favorite!

Charming, downtown...and quiet

  • 5 of 5
"We had a good time with our 2 years old. We had to watch him a little, but since he is not a climber, it was not overly difficult. He slept on the floor of the second bedroom. The 2 bedrooms are not directly connected.
The house is surprisingly quiet since it is located just 4 houses from Main st. There are occasional fog horns (harbor!) and bikes, but most sounds are muffled by all the trees around the house, the shopping street noise is only a vague rumor.

It is right downtown, but we rode our bike direclty from there, and it was also easy to get out of the city in car.

We found all we needed (and much more), like a real house rather than a location.

I recommend it and would go back!"

Lovely holiday home

  • 5 of 5
We spent a week here and found it was lovely holiday home, close to everything, but a nice quiet location.
Everything was within walking distance and Bar Harbour is a lovely place to visit,lots to see and do, would especially recommend Acadia National Park there is so much to see
and the free shuttle bus is great.
The house was very clean and well maintained and Gay & George were a very nice couple who respected our privacy but were on hand if needed.
Would highly recommend this property to couples and we hope to return there one day ourselves.

A Wonderful Home!

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I honeymooned in Bar Harbor, and we rented this home to celebrate our 25th anniversary. This home is a hidden treasure! It is right in the heart of Bar Harbor, and all the shops. Its just a couple of miles from Acadia National Park. The house is very comfortable, and beautifully decorated. The kitchen had everything we needed to cook complete meals at home, which was a great money saver! The owners, George and Gay, live right next door. They were very kind, and wonderful hosts. Gay knows the area well, and answered all our email questions before our trip. We really enjoyed ourselves on this vacation, and would definately stay here again. We both highly recommend this house for adults and older children. The second floor loft bedroom is open, and would be dangerous for young children.

A Drop of Heaven on Earth

  • 5 of 5
My wife and 2 kids have come to Bar Harbor a couple times per year for the past 7 years and this was our 1st time at Raven's Nest (August 15 -22). Right away it felt like home and we were already planning next years trip back. Just off of the main street in town, we were able to park the car for most of the week and take advantage of the wonderful Island Explorer shuttle to most of our hiking destinations. Upon returning from our hikes, the kids loved picking blueberries, rasberries and wild strawberries just outside the door. Fabulous design details throughout the home, it was truly a dream home away from home.

Bar Harbor is a great tourist destination for the whole family with tons of hiking and biking and water activities such as swimming, boating, kayaking, touring and sailing. The presence of Acadia National Park next to Bar Harbor offers the tourist and resident the best of both worlds: nature during the day and a bustling, interesting town at night. Mount Desert Island comes alive in the summer with art shows, music festivals, parades and food fests. Each chamber of commerce on the Island will list early in the year the dates of these. They begin in June and go through October with Oktoberfest. They are a nice addition to all the other activities the Island has to offer.

Other Activities: whale watching, kayaking, carriage rides

Notes:
The washer and dryer are in the basement area not the kitchen. The elderly would find the house very relaxing but they need to be able to negotiate the stairway. Because the house is elevated with an open deck and stairway we feel that it is best suited for older children or infants. Please inquire. Housekeeping is included at the end of a stay but not during. The woodstove can also be used open for viewing the fire behind a screen.
