Overview

Bar Harbor House Rental Photos and Description

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.

About Paul Strathman

We are Paul and Joy Strathman and we have lived in the Midwest for the past 20 years. It all began when 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

What makes this house unique

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!

OUTSTANDING VACATION

  • 5 of 5
This was our first time staying in a VRBO but will not be our last. We had an outstanding vacation and would highly recommend Moose Manor to anyone and everyone considering going to Bar Harbor. The home is in the perfect location. Walking distance to the harbor, restaurants, shopping and to the buses which will take you into Acadia. No need for a vehicle (however if you have a car private parking is provided)! Staying in Moose Manor is so much more relaxing and comfortable than staying at a hotel. Everything you need has been provided by the owners. If we return to the Bar Harbor area, will definately come back to Moose Manor.

Fabulous Fall Getaway

  • 5 of 5
Shared a week of great food, sights, play and laughter with friends arriving from across the country. What a fabulous destination to meet up for a girls' retreat. The home has been furnished with an eye for details that make settling in effortless. Cozy and charming inside and out with the added plus of walking distance to everything the wonderful town of Bar Harbor has to offer - great restaurants, shops, shuttles to Acadia National Park, boating, biking, hiking, you name it. This was my first trip to Maine but I definitely hope to be a return leaf peeper in Bar Harbor. What a perfect place to be drenched in fall color!

Owner's Response: I'm happy that your first trip to Maine was an enjoyable time for you and your friends, and that Moose Manor made it a comfortable stay. Yes, Autumn is a beautiful season here in Bar Harbor. Please come back again. It was a pleasure to have you as our guests.

Moose Manor- I want to return!

  • 5 of 5
Absolutely one of the best vacation spots we have ever chosen. To see God's creation bursting forth in such colors and the beauty of Acadia against the shore of the ocean, just takes one's breath away. The area of Bar Harbor is wonderful and the town is delightful, Moose Manor is the perfect setting for such a new adventure. The house is lovely and relaxing on the porch is a great way to end the day, or start the next day, with morning coffee. We loved it.

Perfect in-town location

  • 5 of 5
We had a wonderful week at Moose Manor! The location of the home was pefect and we were able to easily walk to all of the restaurants and activities in town. The house was exactly as pictured in the photos in the listing and was very comfortably furnished. The beds were extremely comfortable and our family all slept well. The kitchen was perfectly equipped and even had spices and other pantry items you may need to prepare a great meal. Paul was extremely helpful and we appreciated his welcome basket and suggestions. I would highly recommend this home to friends or relatives and we hope to come back again soon. Our favorite breakfast place was Cafe This Way and favorite lunch/dinner place was Side Street Cafe. Our favorite activities were hiking and the Stars over Sand Beach progrma. Make sure to check them out!

Great location, nice house, hospitable owners

  • 5 of 5
Moose Manor was a great house and location, offering us the best way to enjoy all Bar Harbor has to offer. It is in the heart of town, letting you walk to the shops nearby, while offering a relaxing, enjoyable house. Acadia Park is literally minutes away as well. Kitchen is full of amenities. The owners are hospitable and friendly and the house is very comfortable and accommodating, offering a chance to have a great Bar Harbor experience.
