Overview

Northeast Harbor House Rental Photos and Description

House, 4 Bedrooms , 2 Baths, (Sleeps 8)

This beautiful home is the perfect place to spend your vacation and relax. Enjoy the outdoor activities and build a cozy fire in the fireplace. In warm weather relax on the deck with coffee or a glass of wine and enjoy a book, walk or bike to the Village, Marina and all amenities, and sleep peacefully in this charming and comfortable post and beam house. You will be close to everything that the Village of Northeast Harbor, Acadia National Park and Mount Desert Island have to offer, yet tucked away on a private road. Furnished beautifully with many New England country antiques, an eye for comfort and color, and set up in the trees, you will know you are in Maine. The exposed wood walls, brick chimney and posts and beams add an interesting touch with the clerestory ceilings in several rooms bringing in the light. A cozy den off the living room offers a place to read or watch tv and movies and a separate spot to relax. The main living floor is the second level and has a foyer, living room with fireplace, den, bathroom with shower, dining room, kitchen with snack bar and desk, laundry area and deck spanning the front of the house reached by french doors in the dining room. This level has hardwood floors. Upstairs you will find a large master bedroom with queen bed, balcony, and fireplace as well as another bedroom with a double bed. These bedrooms share a large bathroom with two sinks and tub/shower. Ivory Berber carpet is in the bedrooms and hallway. Downstairs are two more bedrooms, each with twin beds and carpeted in tan Berber. This downstairs area has a separate outdoor entrance and cheerful red and white tile floor in the hallway. One of these bedrooms has a sitting area with sofa bed. The beds and linens are all of excellent quality and the rooms are attractively furnished. The kitchen is well equipped for either gourmet or simple cooking. You will love your stay here and have a real Maine style experience.

Keywords: Great location close to Village, Acadia National Park , town marina and ferries to outer islands. Classic post and beam, beautifully furnished and comfortable. Quiet spot on a private road surrounded by nature and trees, yet a 5 minute walk to the Village and water.

About The Owner

I am a realtor on Mount Desert Island and spend part of the year in a more southern location but love Maine in all seasons! This house is a very relaxing retreat and is as wonderful in the brillant sunny weather of summer as it is on a snowy winter day. Antiques are a love of mine and I have enjoyed collecting Maine related items over the years to furnish and decorate the house.

The Owner purchased this house in 1988

Why The Owner chose Northeast Harbor

There is no better place to spend summers outdoors boating, hiking, biking, playing tennis and golf, exploring Acadia and the outer islands or just spending time with friends. Maine is a special place and Acadia National Park and Northeast Harbor are the most special of all. This property combines stylish comfort, the character of Maine and an ideal location. Acadia National Park and the entire Downeast area offer endless opportunities for things to do and places to explore. In addition, there are great restaurants, farmer's markets, fairs, garden tours, antique shows and happenings all over MDI and other nearby areas.

What makes this house unique

The house is extremely comfortable for a couple, a group or a family. Sit by the fire with a good book or have some friends in for lobster or a casual meal. For walkers, hikers and bikers the possibilities are endless, uncrowded and all close at hand.. The Village of Northeast Harbor is an easy and enjoyable 5 minute walk for morning coffee and the paper or to go shopping at the wonderful boutiques and shops. Our town offers exceptional amenities like a fabulous library, a neighborhood house with exercise classes and fitness center and public pool and tennis courts. The town dock with ferries to outer islands is a short walk or bike ride as is the free Island Explorer bus line which stops right in town. (This bus line goes all over Mount Desert Island and can accomodate a bike) Acadia National Park abuts the town and offers a myriad of hiking and biking trails of all levels of difficulty, carriage roads, as well as scenic drives and stops. Jordan Pond House is a favorite destination for afternoon popovers and tea and can be reached by a walk by car or the bus.. Asticou and Thuya gardens are a must for garden lovers with some spectacular views from the Thuya garden trail. Ponds and lakes for swimming, kayaking or canoeing are a short drive away.

A wonderful home, perfectly named!

  • 5 of 5

This home is a truly wonderful place to enjoy all that Northeast Harbor has to offer! We stayed here with family for a week's getaway and had the very best time. The owner was very pleasant and responsive, answering all of our questions and making sure everything was in order before our arrival. Whether it was a stroll into town for coffee and a crawler or a quick meet up at the dock - everything was so easy from this cozy, clean, and happy abode. The vaulted dining area is great for entertaining, while the living room with its fireplace is just the spot for those foggy mornings. The deck was also a great feature - surrounded by big beautiful trees, it was an ideal place for the evening cocktail. Clearly well loved and cared for - this is a place I am so excited to return to!
