Located at the waterfront just outside the Mount Desert Island, Bar Harbor area is this charming
two bedroom log home. It has a fully furnished kitchen, front master bedroom with king bed and
second bedroom with two single beds. Porch on two sides of the house, front side is a covered
section as seen in pictures. The house includes washer/dryer, dishwasher, stove/oven, microwave
oven and gas barbeque on the porch. There is Dish Network satellite access and DVD/VCR capabilities.
Bar Harbor is about a 20 minute drive and the National Park entrance is about 15 minutes. There is also a free bus service available less than a mile from the cottage that connects to many of the locations in the Bar Harbor, Acadia National Park area. Sorry but no smokers and no pets.
Maine Lodging Tax of 7% will be added to the rental price. Cleaning fee and refundable security deposit required in addition to rental.
This cottage is beautifully maintained, clean and attractively furnished. There is a large lawn and meadow that leads down to a very large expanse of beach. The view from the porch looks over the lawn and water. The view from the master bedroom is of the water and a spectacular sunrise. You don't even have to get out of bed to see it The cottage is shining clean, with comfortable beds and a fire place in case it turns cool. While one can see the bridge that crosses from the main land to Bar Harbor island the traffic sounds did not disturb us. In fact, being close to the bridge meant that we had a very quick and easy ride to everything in Bar Harbor. We had a special treat/activity of going to Wild Iris Farm in Bar Harbor and learning how to drive a cart pulled by a Shire horse. (The kind seen in Downton Abbey.) If you don't want to drive a cart yourself, you can enjoy a ride in down town Bar Harbor in carriage pulled by horses from Wild Iris Farm. We had a wonderful time with lots of things, even when the rain came. The cottage was very cozy when the fog rolled in. This place is a must stay. One final thing. Sue is great. I left a number of things behind in the closet. She arranged to have her cleaning lady send the clothes off the very next day. I will definitely stay here when I come to Bar Harbor next.
LL Bean has a local free bus hop on hop off that you can take from a few places not too far away. They allow you to take your bikes as well and they drop you off in the park. You can Kayak or canoe right from our beach and there are several rental companies that deliver right to the house. We can sit on our porch and on a coming tide quite often see seals swimming up into the bay.
