Overview

Bar Harbor Cottage Rental Photos and Description

1 king bedroom suite, second bedroom, 2 full bathrooms, sleeps total of 3

'Thankful Cottage' is located in the Village of Bar Harbor near the Town Pier, Town Beach, historic Shore Path walk, and the Museum in the Streets self guided walking tour. Built before the Civil War, the cottage has been lovingly rehabilitated and features the perfect blend of nostalgia with modern amenities. The cottage has off street parking and is walkable to boating, shopping, dining and cultural activities. Bar Harbor is named for the 'bar' to Bar Island which forms the harbor. Bar Island, portrayed by David Maitland Armstrong in his late 1800's painting, 'The Bar, Bar Harbor', is visible from the cottage.

The top floor of the cottage is master suite with king bed, sitting room with water view, walk-in closet, full bath and deck with water view.

The first floor includes a modern kitchen, living area with gas fireplace, den with pull out twin bed and a second full bath.

Wonder why the cottage is named, 'Thankful'? We traced the deeds back to a woman named Thankful Rodick who in the mid-1800's lived in the cottage. While Bar Harbor is thankful that this

little cottage has survived for 160+- years, we actually named her after the person Thankful. The cottage is on the Bar Harbor historic

properties list.

We hope you will be 'thankful' that you picked 'he'r for your stay in downtown Bar Harbor. What could be better after a day of boating and hiking, followed by a gourmet dinner, than a walk home to your own historic cottage in the heart of Bar Harbor?

About Sherry Rasmussen

We, Sherry and Ivan Rasmussen, have been involved the ARTs in Bar Harbor since the early 1970's. We own galleries and artist studios on the Bar Harbor Waterfront near the cottage. Ivan, who was once Bar Harbor Harbormaster, has spent most of his life near the ocean in his native Oregon and now on Mount Desert Island which is home to Acadia National Park.

Growing up, Sherry's beach was Virginia Beach in her native state. She traveled extensively as an international flight attendant.

Though her travels took her to many beautiful destinations, she

says that Mt. Desert Island, home to Bar Harbor, is truly one of the world's great treasures...and Acadia's Sand Beach surrounded by mountains is now her beach.

Ivan captures the beauty of the island in his watercolors that he

sells in his own 'ART on West' and other galleries.

We live right in the Village of Bar Harbor which is one of Maine's most walkable communities. And just like many of our Thankful Cottage visitors, we walk or bike into Acadia National Park from our home. A free bus runs from mid-June to mid-October from the Village of Bar Harbor into Acadia National Park and to neighboring Villages. The Village of Bar Harbor is surrounded by Acadia National Park and the nearby Bar Island is just a short walk from the cottage. Did you know that the 'bar' across the 'harbor' to Bar Island is the reason for the town's name of Bar Harbor? You can see the 'bar' and Bar Island from the cottage.

We love to share our community and island with visitors from around the world. You check in for your week at our 'ART on West: Gallery. We are there to get you started on a perfect vacation.

Sherry Rasmussen purchased this cottage in 2003

Why Sherry Rasmussen chose Bar Harbor

Rare is the opportunity to rent an 1850's cottage in a perfect resort location. For your convenience there is private, off street parking and the amenities of the world renowned Village of Bar Harbor are all walkable.

Because the cottage rents Sunday to Sunday, it is a perfect honeymoon hideaway after a Saturday wedding. It has also become

a favorite for anniversary celebrations.

You will delight in the historic maps and collectibles that take you back to another era, yet you will enjoy the modern conveniences that make your stay enjoyable. Following the history of Bar Harbor,

you can jump on the 'Museum in the Streets' free, self-guided walking tour at the near by Bar Harbor Club or other locations around town.

What makes this cottage unique

Location, location, location. The cottage is near the water and close to Bar Harbor's most upscale hotels with their fine restaurants. There are also many wonderful restaurants and galleries just a short walk away. Right near the cottage are a group of artist owned and run galleries and studios.

Come home after a busy day of shopping, hiking, and exploring to your own cozy cottage with gas fireplace.

A wonderful cottage!

  • 5 of 5
This cottage is a wonderful place to stay in Bar Harbor. The accommodation is even more charming than described. It is very centrally located and easy walking distance to everything. We didn't need our vehicle once we arrived. Everything you could possible need (except your food) is included in the cottage. Sherry has thought of everything including a history of the cottage that was very interesting. The cottage was very clean and the bed very comfortable. Sherry provided numerous fans that kept the cottage cool for sleeping. She also answered all our questions and was available if we needed anything. I absolutely loved staying in the cottage and look forward to coming back.

Owner's Response: What a lovely review from our Canadian visitors. Our 1850's Thankful Cottage is very dear to us
and we are grateful when visitors find "Thankful" charming and unique. We have tried to include amenities to make the cottage special. We look forward to having our Ontario visitors come again to our incredible walkable Bar Harbor to enjoy our nation's treasure that is Acadia National Park.
