About Jon Nicholson

Local owners--born and raised in Bar Harbor.

Jon Nicholson purchased this house in 1997

Why Jon Nicholson chose Bar Harbor

We purchased this property as our first home and lived there for 10 years. We currently still live in Bar Harbor closer to family.

What makes this house unique

This house offers tremendous privacy. We love Bar Harbor but sometimes the bustle of downtown can take away form the tranquil experience and amazing night time skies. This house offers best of both--in town accessibility with a peaceful home tucked in the woods

Thanksgiving Stay

  • 4 of 5
Our 6 + crew was very comfortable and, thanks, to the snow storm, had an opportunity to build an igloo! The Island/Acadia is beautiful in the snow. Never lost power (as happened back home) so turkey and lobsters stayed on the menu. You might want to check living room heating zone. Baseboard pipes never got hot. Piping was hot for about 6' off furnace but cool after that. Never got so cold outside to be an issue as warm bodies/other zones compensated. Glad you were available this late in season. Thanks.

Wonderful Bar Harbor House

  • 5 of 5
Had a wonderful time at this house there was 7 adults, plenty of room for us kitchen had everything we needed, even to cook lobsters one afternoon.
Enjoyed the mini zip line, basketball net, played frisbee in the large front yard and even had a fire in the fire pit our last night.
Loved all the shops and restaurants in Bar
Harbor. Acadia National Park was also beautiful. We would defiantly come back to this property.

Lovely, comfortable home

  • 5 of 5
My family of 5 rented this cottage for the week in August. It was the most comfortable home to come back to after a day of hiking and sightseeing. We had small fires in the portable burning pit, used the gas grill, and my teen boys played basketball for countless hours into the evening. The house is very cool and comfortable sleeping with the windows open. Washer and dryer on the second floor was very convenient. Sits on 5 acres so you are not bothered by any noise from traffic outside or neighbors. We enjoyed sitting outside on the glider before going in to town. Make sure to take bug spray though to ward off the mosquitos. Perfect location to downtown Bar Harbor and to the entrance of Acadia NP which is about a ten minute drive to both. Each morning went out to the blackberry patch located along the side yard and picked a handful of blackberries. In a week or two someone will be able to pick loads of blackberries to eat with each meal plus snacks, plus midnight snacks. Thanks for a great week and highly recommend staying here!

Perfect for a large family

  • 5 of 5
This house has a nice layout and was perfect for our family's extended stay in Bar Harbor. Especially convenient was the laundry on the second floor. We have stayed at several houses in the area and this is the first one that did not have a musty smell in it. We were able to have a nice Thanksgiving dinner in the dining room. The property is nice, too. We enjoyed playing basketball in the driveway…even in the cold. It is a fairly convenient place. One can get to Bar Harbor in a short ten minutes and get around MDI easily. We would definitely look to stay here again when we are in the area.

Great stay. Quiet and private house close to Bar Harbor main attractions

  • 5 of 5
We had a great stay in this well maintained, beautiful, private house.
The house had every convenience for a comfortable stay.
I loved the drive up to the house down quiet country back roads with cows grazing on pastures.
The house location was great for visiting all parts of Acadia.. It was about the same drive to visit the more popular area around Cadillac mountain as well as the quieter part around Echo Lake and Long Pond.
