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

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.

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.

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.

Beyond perfect! The owners were so kind. The house is incredible- so grand and beautiful. The location could not be better. The kids in our family never wanted to leave because the yard and home were so much fun to explore!

JUST PERFECT

  • 5 of 5
Wow, what a house! We knew Sunset would be great, but didn't know it'd be THAT great. The location is as perfect as we could have dreamed. It's 1 block from a grocery, 2 blocks from downtown, and ON the sand bar. The home itself is HUGE. Plenty of room for whatever we wanted to do. It's decorated well and we all talked about the lack of dust. Nothing was dirty. How, in a house that big, this was possible, we didn't know. The grounds are really pretty and well-kept. All in all, this place is, as stated, just perfect.
