Bar Harbor House Rental Photos and Description
4 Bedrooms, 3.5 Baths (Sleeps 8)
Eastern Bay Retreat: Set upon treasured Frenchman Bay, this spacious shorefront home offers a lovely private retreat from which to enjoy your visit to Bar Harbor and Acadia National Park. Wake each morning to water views, a pretty lawn and professionally landscaped gardens. Native plants such as wild blueberries, blackberries and ferns will surely draw your eye, but also keep a look out for deer, fox, squirrels, raccoons and eagles. When you’re ready to venture out, relax or stroll along your own private stretch of shore and watch for seals and dolphins playing in the water or paddle out to join them in one of the kayaks provided. At high tide, a short paddle will take you through a stone arch or pack a picnic at low tide and venture further around the point to the shallow waterside caves with pebble beaches known as the Ovens.
