Fabulous 3BR, 1 Bath In-Town Location - Walk Everywhere!

This is our home, and we would love to share it with you! Located on Federal Street, Moose Manor is a 1904 New England-style house with all the upgrades and conveniences of modern living. Freshly painted throughout with exquisite, fully-equipped designer kitchen. All the comforts of home in one perfect location, walking distance to everything.

There are 3 bedrooms which comfortably sleep 6. One bedroom has a queen bed, the second has one full and twin bed, and the third has a twin. There is one bathroom (with a wonderful claw-foot tub!) on the second floor. Each bedroom includes wall mirrors to reduce demand for bathroom mirror time. Master bedroom includes a dressing table with light/mirror.

The front of the house features a wonderful enclosed porch with a bistro table/chairs, rocker and futon. Perfect for morning coffee or an afternoon nap.

In the rear you'll find a small wood deck with a Weber grill and 2 chairs to enjoy the cool afternoon breeze while your steak is grilling.

The kitchen has everything you'll need if you choose to prepare some of your own meals during your stay, including some basic pantry items for your use. Top-of-the-line small appliances (including Bunn coffee maker!) are available as well. Other items include Belgian waffle maker, 4 slice Cuisinart toaster, blender, food-processor, Crock Pot, pots/pans and bake-ware as well as an OVER-SIZED lobster pot for boiling your own 'catch' right at home! Easy instructions provided.

Although you'll probably want to get out and enjoy all that Bar Harbor and Acadia National Park has to offer, the home is also equipped with 'rainy day items' should you choose to stay indoors. 32' LCD TV, DVD player, iPod dock/radio, and a wide selection of books, DVDs and games are available for your enjoyment.

We are Paul and Joy Strathman and we have lived in the Midwest for the past 20 years. About 4 years ago, we took a trip to Maine, simply because we'd never been there before.

Since then, we've been back to various parts of Coastal Maine every year and while we enjoy all the towns we've visited, we have fallen hopelessly in love with Bar Harbor. As so often happens when one visits a very special place, one's mind wanders into the possibilities of someday living there.

Our home in Bar Harbor is truly a dream come true. This 1904 New England-style residence is perfectly located right in town; walking distance to everything. We have filled Moose Manor with things we love and have included all the comforts that we enjoy when we are there. We hope that you will enjoy our very special home and likewise fall in love with Bar Harbor.

Paul Strathman purchased this house in 2013

While on one of our early visits to Bar Harbor, we went for a walk. As we passed by this house, my wife said, 'Paul, please buy me that porch!' We both chuckled and continued our walk. Little did we know that we would not only someday buy the porch, but the wonderful home which sits behind it as well!

This inviting home has been lovingly cared for by each owner since the house was built in 1904. We are only the 4th family to own this property. The warmth and charm of Moose Manor is captivating and it's fabulous location cannot be beat!

Great Week in Bar Harbor, ME

  • 5 of 5
If you are looking for a great family location with easy access to EVERYTHING, Moose Manor is the place. My wife and I stayed with our 3 children in the first week of August 2014. We had a great time. Easy walk down bridge street to walk the sand bar. Equally easy to explore Main street and downtown Bar Harbor. We enjoyed some of the best Blueberry Pie at local bakeries as well as some of the best ice cream we have had in a long time. The house was well equipped with all the kitchen needs, linens, beach towels. We cooked dinner at home some nights. There is even a grill out back. The enclosed porch was a welcome place for my wife and to sit and enjoy after we put the kids to bed. The owners were very attentive and called me before and after to make sure things were ok. We look forward to a another trip in the future!

A hidden gem!

  • 5 of 5
Our family visited Bar Harbor for the first time in July. Moose Manor met and exceeded our expectations for its closeness to the town. We walked everywhere and sampled lots of blueberry food items. We loved being so close to the grocery store. We boiled our first lobster and found the kitchen well-stocked. We enjoyed a week of temps in the 80's so the box fans were a welcome addition to keeping the house cool.

Owner's Response: Your wonderful review is very much appreciated and we’re delighted that Moose Manor exceeded your expectations. Boiling your first lobster wasn’t so hard was it? That’s a nice memory you will always have from your first visit to Bar Harbor. We’ll be happy to have you with us again!

Family vacation

  • 5 of 5
We stayed at Moose Manor for a family (2 adults, 3 kids under 10) vacation. This was our first trip to Bar Harbor and Acadia National Park. The property is in a fantastic location. We were able to walk to any location in Bar Harbor and it was an easy drive into the park. The property was just as described and all of the photos were accurate. The kitchen was well stocked and the beds were very comfortable! The house included a pack-n-play portable crib which we used for our youngest child, age 3. Paul was very easy to reach (we didn't have any problems during our stay). He checked in with us on our day of arrival and departure to make sure we were ok. There was even a hospitality basket in the kitchen waiting for us on arrival. We couldn't have asked for a better trip and would love to stay at Moose Manor again!

We had a wonderful time at Moose Manor! We left today and already miss it! We stayed for a week and enjoyed the house thoroughly. The location is ideal for walking to everything in town, such as shopping, restaurants, the park, etc. We were even able to walk to both our sea kayak tour and the whale watching trip. We especially appreciated being able to walk to the grocery store 3 blocks away. The house was clean, comfortable, in excellent condition and well equipped. My daughter loved the puzzles and we all enjoyed playing family games that are included at the house. We were happy to have such a nice charcoal grill to use. The rooms were spacious and the beds were very comfortable! When we come back to Bar Harbor we definately would like to rent Moose Manor again!

Comfy home in a great Bar Harbor location

  • 5 of 5
Our first trip to Acadia National Park / Bar Harbor was perfect. We stayed at Moose Manor and LOVED the home and the location. The kitchen is well laid out and fully equipped with anything you would need for cooking. The beds were very comfortable and because of the unusually warm weather this week (85-90 degrees), we were grateful for the box fans. It cooled down at night so sleeping was pleasant. The kids loved the open space in the living room and the front porch was really nice. We watched the fireworks from the porch b/c it was raining and could see the entire show. Location is perfect for walking in-town for dinners or for ice cream. The house has a relatively private small yard and back deck for playing, relaxing, or storing bicycles. The owner, Paul, was very responsive to any questions/issues we had during our stay and was super helpful to recommend things to do in the area. All in all, it was a great home and we will definitely return. I highly recommend staying at Moose Manor if you are looking for a nice in-town location.

Perfect Bar Harbor Location

  • 5 of 5
Moose Manor was a perfect location for all the activities and restaurants in Bar Harbor. Just park your car and walk to shops and restaurants. Acadia National Park via car or shuttle easily accessible from this lovely home. Well maintained, clean with all the comforts of home. Loved the kitchen and front porch. Beds were extremely comfortable. The off street parking is priceless in Bar Harbor.
