LA MAISONETTE - HISTORIC RENOVATED 6 BR DOWNTOWN BAR HARBOR HOME

Bar Harbor Estate Rental Photos and Description

6 Bedrooms, 3.5 Bathrooms, Sleeps 12

''''La Maisonette'', circa 1886, is a beautiful 3,400 square foot, 6 bedroom home in downtown Bar Harbor nestled within Bar Harbor?s national historic district with a view of Frenchman's Bay and a beautiful 1/2 acre back yard.

Located on West Street, you are a short stroll to restaurants, shops, bike and kayaking rentals in the downtown area. Acadia National Park is just minutes away by car or rent a bike and walk to the shuttle in downtown Bar Harbor which will take you into the park to spend a day riding the Carriage Trail.

At low tide, walk around the corner and enjoy the unique experience of crossing a sand bar to Bar Island or simply walk along the sand bar collecting shells and photographing the spectacular views.

With its shingle style architecture, La Maisonette offers charm and character with high ceilings, detailed woodwork, a staircase tower, a solarium and fireplaces.

La Maisonette is fully furnished and offers a wrap around enclosed porch that provides a brief view of the ocean, 6 bedrooms that sleep 12, 3 full and one partial bathroom, WiFi, and HD TV, we believe it offers everything you need to enjoy a wonderful Bar Harbor vacation.

Guestbook comments from the owner
Thank you for the wonderful week we had together in Bar Harbor. Spending time with my mom, sister, aunts and cousins far exceeded my expectations. La Maisonette is the perfect home for sharing stories of the past and making so many more fun memories. The 10 of us were so comfortable in your home - it is the perfect layout and the fully stocked kitchen was great.

We began coming to Bar Harbor when our first child was born. We fell in love with the town and Acadia National Park. We now have four children and are thrilled to own this beautiful home so they can grow up visiting Bar Harbor

THE BEST RENTAL HOUSE ON THE ISLAND

  • 5 of 5
If you are looking for a large, perfectly located, and comfortable house in the Bar Harbor area - La Maisonette is the best available. It is located just a few blocks from most everything in the center of town so you never have to use a car and search for parking places. The Island shuttle stops near the house and can take you to the main places in Acadia. The back yard is large enough for outside games and parking several cars. With one large kitchen and one small kitchen, there is plenty of room to prepare meals for a large group. Large formal dining room and two tables in the breakfast room for the kids. The front screened porch is awesome for sipping early morning coffee and looking out at Frenchmen's Bay. There is so much room in the house that everyone can spread out for different activities. The kids loved going exploring in this neat historical house. Our family loved La Maisonette and highly recommend it to others.

FAMILY VACATION

  • 5 of 5
This house is the perfect place to stay to enjoy Bar Harbor and Acadia National Park without having to drive anywhere. Some of us in our family have been visiting this area for many years, so we have stayed in various places. This is by far the best. The house is fully equipped with enough of everything to take care of all of your needs. It's a beautiful old house with lots of nooks and crannies - perfect for hide and seek. The front porch was a favorite place to gather. Our family ranges in ages from 5 mos. to 60+ years coming from Massachusetts and Colorado. We enjoy having family dinners at the end of a fun-filled day and we were all able to comfortably fit around the table in this house - a big plus! We are also very active and we could bike into the park right from the house. Plenty of room in the yard for bikes, kayaks, etc. We thank you for making our little piece of heaven so enjoyable.

A DREAM COME TRUE -- A PLACE YOU WILL NEVER FORGET

  • 5 of 5
La Maisonette is one of those remarkable places that you may imagine, but think that it is just some sort of wonderful dream. Well, let me tell you that a stay at this house will restore your faith in dreams. The house is awesome. From the moment you set foot in the house, you will feel as if you have crossed into some other dimension in time and place. The house has a rich historic fabric to it. It is very difficult to describe. It made our family feel warm and welcome. The house goes on and on. So many nooks and crannies -- so much to discover. You can be there a week and still be discovering places in the house that you never realized were there. You can sit quietly on the front porch and watch the harbor, and the cars and bikes, and the people go easily drifting by you, close enough that you could reach out and touch them, and yet far enough away that you may seem invisible -- or feel like you have just been blended into the scene before you. This place has an abiding solitude to it. In the midst of Bar Harbor, on its busiest of days, this place is a beautiful refuge. You can reach out and take in the town at your leisure -- it's all right there, at your doorstep. Or you can simply relax in the house's multitude of rooms and special places. The screened-in front porch is enormous, and yet strangely intimate. And the open porch is equally inviting. You can just sit and rock and take in the sights from your own very private perch. It is wonderful!

I swear that the house takes on a life of its own. It's like living in a fairy tale. As you move from room to room, you will not be able to miss how much care has gone into the individual attention to the details in each space. If you are one of many, you will find ample room either to find your separate favorite places or to gather as a family. The living room and its adjacent anteroom are particularly warm and welcoming. The breakfast room off the kitchen is also a most charming spot -- it sort of begs for people to sit around and chat about the town or the harbor or Acadia. In our case, it was a perfect spot to power up our laptops or to pour over maps and pamphlets about the many special establishments and adventures available in and around town. We were thoroughly taken in by our surroundings. In many ways, we began to feel over the course of our week at the house that we had always been there. We became part of the town. ... Staying in this house is truly an amazing experience.

PERFECT HOME FOR BAR HARBOR VACATION

  • 5 of 5
La Maisonette is a gorgeous, historic, sprawling home that easily accommodated our family of nine, most of whom were visiting from Texas. The location is ideal; in town, easy walk to everything, but also relatively quiet compared to busy Main St. The owners have done a wonderful job of restoring the home -- particularly in the magnificent, updated kitchen -- while maintaining its character, charm, and period details. We were a quick walk from all our favorite activities, which included Lulu Lobster Boat, Oli's Trolley Tour, a nature cruise by Whale Watching Co., shopping Main St, and crossing the sand bar to hike Bar Island. We also walked to our favorite restaurants: The Reading Room (refined yet comfortable, surprisingly kid-friendly), 2 Cats (beware of late-morning crowds), and La Bella Vita at Harborside Hotel. Our family isn't much for cooking while on vacation, but we did use the home's backyard gas grill for a feast on the 4th of July, and we also whipped up a huge breakfast one morning -- all made much easier by the spacious, well-appointed kitchen. This was the perfect home for our week in Bar Harbor!

FABULOUS AND RELAXING

  • 5 of 5
To say that this vacation was unforgettable is an understatement. We have rented vacation homes many times throughout Europe and the US and this was certainly one of our favorites. During our stay of 2 weeks, our family enjoyed Bar Harbor immensely and La Maisonette was a major factor in our satisfaction. We had family members ranging in age from 14 to 73 and at times there were as few as 7 of us and at others as many as 11. The house was roomy and inviting; even at our peak of 11, we never felt cramped. The 5 teens loved the "secret" attic and spent much of their indoor time there. They could stay up late at night and not disturb the adults. I was even amazed that as we prepared for a family photo session, all 11 of us took showers within an hour and didn't run out of hot water! The house was furnished comfortably -- the beds were probably the most comfortable we've encountered in vacation rentals. My favorite spot was the front glassed in porch where we could sip coffee in the morning and cocktails in the evening and watch the world go by. The kitchen was well-stocked with pot & pans, baking dishes etc; we lacked nothing for everything from baking cakes to preparing a full out lobster bake. The house was clean and the owner was responsive whenever we had communications. My only suggestion would be to install hooks in each bedroom for towels-the bathrooms are understandably small and it's hard to keep track of each person's towel. As far as location is concerned, it was perfect. We could walk easily anywhere in town in a matter of minutes--this was a feature the teens especially enjoyed. It gave them a sense of freedom to walk for pizza (Rosalie's) or ice cream (Ben & Bill's) whenever the mood hit them. Here are some activities and restaurants we enjoyed: Nat'l Park Sea Kayak tours, Oli's Trolley, Lulu's Lobster boat, Jackson Laboratory, Reel Pizza (movie and pizza-very fun!), S-K tours Bangor (for Stephen King fans), Atlantic Brewing (and BBQ), Acadia (so much to do!), sunrise on Cadillac Mtn, Thirsty Whale, Downeast Deli, Cottage St Bakery, Jordan's (for breakfast), Mache Bistro (for a romantic anniversary dinner). Whew! As you can see we had plenty to do during our 2 weeks, but also had plenty of time and space to sit back and read a book and enjoy our vacation. Thanks Angelique!
