Overview

Bar Harbor House Rental Photos and Description

6 bedrooms, 3 Bathrooms, Sleeps 12

A bright, airy, spacious house perfect for families and friends, set in an old orchard on a quiet private lane close to the seashore in quiet and beautiful little Hulls Cove, just 3 miles from Downtown Bar Harbor.

One and a half peaceful acres graced by historic apple trees, fragrant white pines and crisp salt air. Welcome the day’s sunrises from all the upstairs bedroom windows or with breakfast on the big grand piano shaped deck. Stroll down to the shore and discover bleached mussel shells, perfect little ringed rocks a seagull feather, a bright gem of sea glass.

Neighboring Acadia National Park’s scenic carriage roads are perfect for walking biking and horseback riding, its breathtaking mountain trails for energetic hikes and its lovely lakes for swimming and canoeing. Bustling downtown Bar Harbor shops and restaurants are only a few minutes drive away. The free Island Explorer Shuttle bus stops in Hulls Cove and will take you into town and all over the island.

Situated in historic Hulls Cove; a quiet and beautiful little cove just 3 miles from downtown Bar Harbor where the sun rises over the water and the Porcupine islands, and each morning the sky and sea delight the eye. Some days the islands are draped in fog and the water looks like silver. Other days the water sparkles like diamonds with countless shades of blue. It is ever changing and always breathtaking.

This is our first season to welcome guests to the Orchard House so of course we don't have any reviews yet but we have had 3 absolutely wonderful years welcoming guests to our 7 bedroom Cider House Farm which is just up the lane:

We hope you will take a moment to read the reviews of Cider House farm and hope that by the end of this season the Orchard House will have some really nice reviews also.

The Orchard House began as a small photographers cottage down on the shore in Hulls Cove some time around the early 1900's. At a later date the cottage was moved up to the orchard. It escaped the Great Fire of Bar Harbor in 1947 but burned to the ground exactly 50 years later in 1997. We rebuilt the house,but a good deal bigger this time because our family was growing. Now the time has come for yet another change to this house's story. We are looking forward to welcoming guests to the Ochard House and for them to enjoy the house and its surroundings and to become part of its story too.

Guestbook comments from the owner

It was so wonderful and memorable times at your house. Everyone told me that it was the best vacation house they have been. You and your son are so kind and had helped whatever we asked. Pictures in your house are full of artistic. Your garden is so romantic. We really enjoyed so much there since your house and your kindness.

Excellent house for our family reunion

  • 5 of 5
My wife and I planned a family reunion to celebrate our 35th wedding anniversary. The house was a perfect choice, it was very comfortable for our family of 12. We appreciated Trish's thoughtful attention to details inside the house, everything we needed was on hand. The property was well maintained and the grandchildren had a great time playing and exploring. My wife and I took our coffee up to the little deck on the third floor every morning to watch the sun rise over Frenchman Bay. We will remember this anniversary for a long time.

Beautiful House with lots of family space.

  • 5 of 5
Our 2 families had a wonderful stay at The Orchard House. The house is beautiful and furnished with everything we needed. Great kitchen, big bathrooms, lots of towels, amazing view of the water from the upstairs deck. We really appreciated the privacy of the location, there was so much space for the children to play. Those of us who brought bikes rode straight from the house to the carriage roads in Acadia. We were extremely happy with the Orchard House

Fantastic House For Our Family Reunion

  • 5 of 5
This was an amazing house for our family reunion and my 60th birthday, I couldn't have asked for anything better, there was loads of room for all of us. The large living room, huge deck and beautiful, well kept grounds just seemed to be made for family entertaining. Trish's unique collection of art throughout the house was an unexpected pleasure. Everything we needed was in the house and felt warmly welcomed.

The Orchard House is located in Hulls Cove, it is quiet and secluded yet just 3 miles from Downtown Bar Harbor and a couple of minutes from Acadia National park. At the Hulls Cove General Store you can pick up coffee, a newspaper and grocery items or board the free Island Explorer shuttle bus. The Chart Room Resturant offers delicious dining right on the water or pop into Peppers for pizza and calzones.

Lake Wood is just up the road. It is part of Acadia and a great place to swim. Bullfrogs like it too!
