COZY CARRIAGE HOUSE ON RURAL ESTATE

Acadia National Park Cottage Rental Photos and Description

Idyllic Bar Harbor Location Near Acadia National Park

Our carriage house is located on our rural six-acre property in Bar Harbor. The property sits in a hill looking down on beautiful surrounding countryside with the Schoodic Peninsula mountains in the distance. Neighboring land owned by Rockefellers, College of the Atlantic and Acadia National Park.

The living quarters are on the second floor of a stable-like building. The bottom floor is open with a workshop, minimally used. Skylights look over coastal mountains and rolling fields in the distance and in the nearest field, our working vegetable garden. (Available to renters, work and/or vegetables!) Deer feed in nearby fields. Eagles soar overhead. Pesky woodchucks attack the garden.

We live in a farmhouse next door and gladly share our hot tub and tourist advice.

The interior is a studio apartment with a pull-down staircase leading to a loft that sleeps two. Two more can sleep on the pull-out couch in the main room. Towels/sheets/linens/pillows/blankets are included. Fully equipped kitchen. Bathroom has tub with shower attachment. Washer and dryer. Television with cable. Free-standing gas fireplace takes the chill out of Maine evenings. Skylights provide wonderful natural light and, when needed, ventilation.

The property is located on the edge of Acadia National Park. Within minutes you can be on top of Cadillac Mountain or any other park location. You can also shop multiple Mount Desert Island shops, or head to the LL Bean outlet 18 minutes away, go whale watching, play golf (famous Kebo Valley in Bar Harbor) or other public courses. Miles of rolling island roads are available for biking, or the awesome Acadia carriage roads provide biking and hiking at all levels of difficulty. Bike and kayak rentals are available nearby. If you want to leave the island, numerous potential daytrips are available, including the outlet stores in Ellsworth, antiquing in small towns up and down the coast and visits to working fishing villages.

We also own a lakefront cottage 18 miles away on George’s Pond in the coastal town of Franklin. A two-week combo special is available with rentals of both properties back-to-back.

Come join us on beautiful Mount Desert Island.

Charming studio in beautiful location

  • 4 of 5
This was the perfect spot to relax and unwind after a day of hiking at Acadia National Park. Ideal for a couple or small family seeking simple accommodations, the carriage house is tastefully decorated and had everything we needed. We loved the sleeping loft, quaint bathroom and wonderful cool air let in by all the windows and skylights. Best of all was the picturesque setting on a quiet road amidst farms. We would definitely return again and rent this property.

David and Julie were wonderful hosts. This property was perfect for a week vacation in Bar Harbor. The location was ideal - whether you want to spend time downtown or go hiking. I highly recommend this rental!
