About Angelique Bennett

My husband and I fell in love with Bar Harbor 15 years ago when we visited with our first child. We now have 4 children and Bar Harbor and Acadia have become one of our families favorite vacation places; so much so that we decided to purchase Sunset.

Angelique Bennett purchased this house in 2013

Why Angelique Bennett chose Bar Harbor

Sunset is one of those special places that is hard to describe. Listed on the National Historic Registry, it provides a spectacular view of Frenchman's Bay. We fell in love with it the first time we saw it and purchase it 1 month later.

What makes this house unique

Sunset's charm lies in its historical beauty, its views and its location. We have done our best to furnish the house with antiques to maintain its old world charm. It truly is a one of a kind property.

Sunset House

  • 5 of 5
We had a great time at Sunset House. Our daughter got married in Bar Harbor and we had a rehearsal dinner at the rental house that turned out great. People were able to spread out and play games outside in the huge backyard. There was plenty of room inside for food and socializing. The location is excellent. You can walk to restaurants, movies, shops and the grocery store. We rented kayaks and went paddling at the end of the street. We enjoyed walking across the sandbar to Bar Island. The house was very clean, the beds comfortable and we had everything we needed, including games for the kids and two washers and dryers in the basement. My extended family of all ages enjoyed the week and we are looking forward to coming back again soon.

Wonderful family reunion

  • 5 of 5
Beautiful home in great location. We had 14 adults and 1 child staying in the house and never felt crowded. Easy access to Acadia for the adventurous and all of Bar Harbor in walking distance. Only problems were lack of an oven from electrical problems left over from hurricane Arthur and early morning noise (4:30 on) from some construction next door. Overall a great week for all including folks 55 plus, mid 20s couples and singles, and young family. Something for all and a wonderful property.

Wonderful House, Wonderful Location

  • 5 of 5
Our family holds a reunion every other year and this year we chose Bar Harbor. Families traveled from Houston and Austin, Texas, Philadelphia, New Castle, DE, NYC and Cape Cod. Every member of our family (ages 8 to 75) completely enjoyed all aspects of our visit. The house was spacious and comfortable, providing room for together time and quiet time. Everything that was advertised about the house was available--fully stocked kitchen, washers and dryers, plenty of linens, beautiful back yard with view of Bar Island. The location was perfect--close to the water, to town, and Acadia National Park. We took our children camping in Acadia over forty years ago. This year, they brought their children back to Acadia and shared old memories and made new ones.

Wonderful house in Bar Harbor

  • 5 of 5
We just spent a week at "Sunset" and loved the house, garden and great location. The house is huge, plenty of space to spread out and let the kids play. The gorgeous landscaped backyard was a wonderful place to sit and relax, with an easy short walk down to a beach where the kids could look for shells. The house is located a block from the grocery store and an easy five minute walk into downtown Bar Harbor for shopping, ice cream, restaurants and whale watching. The house was fully stocked with all the amenities listed: TVs, games, books, hair dryers, a full kitchen, laundry room with two large washers and dryers, and plenty of towels. We hope to visit Bar Harbor again soon and would definitely stay at Sunset again.

Wonderful family reunion venue

  • 5 of 5
We held an extended family reunion at this beautiful house, with ages ranging from 2 to 84. The kitchen and dining room accommodated all-hands dinners, and there were were enough rooms for each couple or family unit to go off for quiet time when needed. It is a short walk across an expansive lawn to the sand bar, an easy stroll into town for dining, groceries and bike rentals. The proximity of both Acadia and town meant there was always something for everyone to do, regardless of age and ability.
