SPACIOUS FAMILY FRIENDLY HOME IN GREAT NEIGHBORHOOD

Bar Harbor House Rental Photos and Description

5 Bedroom, 2.5 Bathroom With Mountain Views, Close To Acadia (Sleeps 10)

Owl's Nest will give you that 'home-away-from-home' feeling as soon as you enter the door. The house is painted in vibrant colors and offers ample space for all. You will love the Maine granite counter tops in the large kitchen, the light dining area and the beautiful views. With four bedrooms and a bathroom upstairs there is enough space for everybody. The spacious master bedroom with adjoining bathroom on the first floor will give mom and dad their own space, or great for the grandparents.

The location is perfect: close by all that Mount Desert Island has to offer, yet far away enough to enjoy the peace and quiet. The spacious back yard has a picnic table, lawn, natural swing set, fire pit (permit required) and lots of woods to explore! The front lawn is great for ball games and BBQ's. The house is child-friendly and ample outside and inside toys will be provided for you to use. (including books, cars, blocks, art supplies, puzzles and games, side walk chalk, kiddie pool, balls etc.)

Rain or shine, you won't be bored in Owls Nest. We made Netflix Instant watch available for all our guests as well as Wi-Fi throughout the house. There is a piano and lots of books and magazines as well as games and puzzles. Among the books are books about Maine, and Mount Desert Island, including some hiking and biking guides.

Edith and Ron moved to Bar Harbor from the Netherlands. Ron is working at the Jackson Laboratory and Edith spends most of her time between multiple volunteer positions, writing and taking care of their three children. This summer the family is managing the summer student program and will be the 'dorm- parents' for 34 summer students!

Edith Schriever Korstanje purchased this house in 2010

After renting for many years, Edith and Ron finally managed to buy a piece of land and built their dream home in 2010. The location is perfect: a neighborhood for the kids to play in, mountain views for three out of the four seasons, and a wooded area to explore. This has it all. The back yard is still a work in progress and each year Edith and Ron add to the landscaping.

The house is energy efficient and last August the owners installed solar panels. It's important to Edith and Ron to 'go green' as much as possible.

Owl's Nest is enjoyed year-round, with each season's own highlights.

In the winter, the children enjoy sledding down the hill in the back yard, while the spring is the season to re-discover the woods. Summer is a time of relaxation in the back yard, listing to the owls hooting at dusk or having water balloon fights around the house. Fall is an explosion of color, with the different leaves of the maples, the birches and the oaks .

The location is perfect: close by all that Mount Desert Island has to offer, yet far away enough to enjoy the peace and quiet. The children can go out and explore without having to be too worried about their where-abouts. The road with the cul-de-sac is great for biking up and down and we often go out for an evening walk with a stop at the ice cream place across Pirate's Cove.

This was a really really great house. Well insultated, quiet, clean and with all the equipment that one can need for cooking. The dining table is large and spacious for our group breakfasts every morning. Beds were comfy. Owner were super communicative and easily reached. We would definitely recommend this place to all! A short drive into Bar Harbor. Try the ice cream at Fearless Flavor in Bar Harbor on Firefly Lane!!! Great unforgettable flavors!
Owner's Response: Thank you, glad you had a good time. The ice cream place on Firefly Lane is also one of our favorite's. It's actually called: Mount Desert Ice cream, house of the Fearless flavor. They also serve Mount Desert Ice cream at many local restaurants on the island. Hopefully you will have a chance to come back!

Owl's Nest is located only 2.7 miles from the Hulls Cove visitor center and Acadia Park entrance. Less than a mile from Owl's Nest you'll find Hamilton Pond, a great spot for fishing (permit required). Salisbury Cove is around the corner, with ocean access and Pirate's Cove adventure golfing is less than a mile from the house. Two family oriented restaurants are located around Pirate's Cove and Lake Wood is only 3.3 miles from the house, with its crystal clear water and mountain view swimming. From Owl's Nest it's only a short drive to Eagle Lake and this is a great starting point for hiking and biking. Bar Harbor is less than 6 miles away and offers ample shopping and dining opportunities. Bar Harbor has also multiple kayak- and bicycle renting places to expand your fun. Multiple boats leave daily for whale watching, Nature tours and deep sea fishing!

If you feel like staying home, Owl's Nest offers you a quiet neighborhood with lots of different birds to watch. At dusk you might hear or see the owls! Deer and turkeys are among the frequent visitors in the back yard.

Don't feel like driving and dealing with parking issues? Walk to the end of Stony Brook and hop on the free Island explorer! The free bus service will bring you to all top locations on the entire island.

Children will have a blast playing in the woods surrounding the house and the natural swing set and climbing wall. A kiddy pool is available for water fun right at home. The new and expanded deck with views of the woods and Cadillac mountain in the distance invite you for many nights among the stars or to soak up the sun. Enjoy the peace and quiet while having all modern comforts and a safe place for children to play, bike and run!
