LARGE, QUIET, CONVENIENT 6-BD, 2-BA NEXT TO ACADIA NATL PARK

Otter Creek House Rental Photos and Description

6-bed, 2-bath, sleeps 11 (no sofabeds or futons)

Embrace nature in a home with large windows and sun room overlooking very private treed lot. Conveniently located on Otter Creek Drive (Route 3), the house is only five miles to downtown Bar Harbor for dining, shopping, catching a whale watch or nature cruise, or cooling off with some blueberry ice cream. Within the park, serene Otter Cove or 110-foot high Otter Cliff are minutes away. Access the scenic Park Loop Road at the Sieur de Monts Spring, just two miles away. Other island activities are easily accessed via Rt. 3.

Within Acadia NP, you can watch the tide at Thunder Hole, snack on popovers at Jordan Pond Tea House, or go horseback riding. Explore the park's 45-mile carriage road system on bike or horse-drawn carriage. Hike through forests and up mountains on 125 miles of trails. Kayak at Jordan Pond and Eagle Lake. Take a dip at Echo Lake or Sand Beach to refresh. Whatever you do, you’ll have stunning views of the mountains of Mount Desert Island and Frenchman Bay.

Amenities: The house is fully equipped for your large traveling party, with flexible arrangements which sleep up to 11 people on three levels. The large living and dining area offers full view of the outdoors with large windows. Lower level sun room offers additional living space for games, puzzles, reading, etc. The open kitchen is fully stocked, from crock pot to lobster pot. The large deck is just off the kitchen, complete with outdoor seating and propane grill. Pack light by making use of washer, dryer and detergent. Keep your bikes or other gear dry in the attached garage. The house has a large lawn, but is surrounded by trees for privacy. Feel free to use the puzzles, games, books, DVD player, cable TV, and WI-FI Internet after a full day enjoying the island and the park. For families with small children, we have a pack and play and high-chair available. There is plenty of parking on the long driveway.

Activities: We hope you enjoy Acadia National Park and Mount Desert Island as much as we do. We've been coming here since 2005 and still find new trails to hike, roads to bike, spots to nature-watch. We've rarely done anything twice, other than dine at our favorite Bar Harbor restaurants. Visitors are truly spoiled for choice when it comes to family friendly activities, and we hope that you find it as inspiring, relaxing, and refreshing as we do.

If this is your first visit to Acadia National Park, we'd be happy to fill you in on more specific attractions for your traveling party.

Guestbook comments from the owner
Thank you so much for letting us stay in your home for just a couple of nights. It was only long enough to fall in love with MDI and Acadia, but not long enough to satisfy us. I sure hope we have another reason to call you to make reservations again n the not-too-distant future. We haven't walked out the door yet and I already want to come back. The house was perfect for us, and yes, CJ's ice cream is the best. Jordan Pond trail was wonderful. I could go on! Thanks so much.

We've been traveling to Acadia together since 2005, the year we met.

Wendy Sabin purchased this house in 2010

We bought the house in 2010 after falling in love with the home's location, yard, and windows.

The location for this home is ideal - close to the park entrance, close to Bar Harbor. The lot has a large yard with lots of trees, so you feel like you're staying right in the park. The seclusion and convenience are our favorite parts of the house.

Memorial Day Weekend get-away

  • 5 of 5
We stayed for 2 nights during Memorial Day weekend and had a great getaway. The location was great and the amenities of the house were perfect for our needs (kitchen has every supply - pot, pan, waffle maker, bowl - you can think of). The indoor/outdoor eating area (with grill) was ideal, and very much appreciated by us city folks not accustomed to such luxuries. The house was easy to find after following the owner's instructions, and the owner provided lots of great info and tips so that we could make the most of our stay. Highly recommend. Great with big groups, families, etc. Would have been great to have 1 extra bathroom with our large 11-person group, but 2 bathrooms is quite doable if everyone is thoughtful.

House and location were great!

  • 5 of 5
We had a wonderful time in Acadia staying at this house. The location is fantastic - outside of Bar Harbor, though close enough to get in quickly. And basically, you're right in the park. And it's not too long a drive to the "quiet side" of Mt. Desert Island. The house is wonderful, very roomy and light and charming, everything we needed was there, the guide with the house was very helpful. We have a 2-year-old and there was a travel crib and high chair, so we were set. We were just down the road from the Burning Tree restaurant, which was phenomenal, and the Otter Creek store, which was good for quick supply runs. We saw a large, must have been 20-point buck, just standing by the back porch, not at all scared, the day we arrived. You couldn't be better situated to get to the Jordan Pond House, Otter Cove, Seal Harbor, Bubble Rock, Thunder Hole, etc. Sandy Beach is a bit of a circuitous drive to get there, due to the one-way loop, but quick to get back. We really just had a great time and would do it again the same way in a heartbeat!

Great location, great house!

  • 4 of 5
Great location, great house! 4th trip to Mount Desert Island - and everything was terrific! Loved having our own house for the week; spacious, clean and private. Would spend another vacation at this home! Very easy to get to different locations on the island, and also an awesome location to get into the park quickly. Thanks for helping us have a fabulous week!

Owner's Response: I'm so glad that you enjoyed the house and the fantastic location - the location sold us on the house back in 2009.
