IDEALLY LOCATED, GORGEOUS HOME, BEAUTIFUL 2+ ACRE PROPERTY, SMALL POND IN FRONT

Hall Quarry House Rental Photos and Description

3 bedroom, 2 1/2 bath, peaceful, lovely property,

Our home is perfectly located on Mt. Desert Island between Somes Sound and Echo Lake in the peaceful village of Hall Quarry. Spend your days enjoying the beauty and adventure of Acadia National Park and return to relax in your “home away from home.”

We are a short drive to all island towns, including Bar Harbor, Southwest Harbor, and Northeast Harbor. Many adventures await you including: whale watching, hiking gorgeous mountain or shoreline trails, biking or strolling along 57 miles of carriage roads, kayaking, sailing, golfing, fishing, attending a ranger-led park program, driving the scenic Park Loop Road, taking a ferry to an outlying island for the day, and more! You can also enjoy shopping, museums, community theater, local galleries, antique shops, and wonderful, varied restaurants.

Best of all will be returning after a busy day to enjoy the serene setting of our home in Hall Quarry. Take a quiet stroll along the well maintained 1 mile dirt road with almost no cars coming or going. In the early morning or evening you will very likely encounter a few deer along the way as you stroll by acres of pines and small picturesque ponds filled with chirping frogs.

Relax on the large front deck looking out into the wooded lot and listen to a multitude of song birds, frogs, and loons calling in the evening from nearby Echo Lake.

House layout:

Large, lovely kitchen with central island and step down breakfast nook. Cooking supplies provided, you just need to bring your food.

Living room with wood stove set in granite wall (granite quarried from the property). Internet TV with Roku, Netflix, no cable TV. DVD player, stereo.

WIFI, free long distance.

Three spacious bedrooms on the second floor.

Master bedroom with attached bath, walk-in closet and queen size bed.

2nd bedroom with double bed and closet.

3rd bedroom with double bed and closet.

Upstairs full bath with double sink, shower and tub.

Separate small study downstairs with full size futon.

Large sunny front deck for barbecuing and relaxing.

We moved here from California to work in Acadia National Park as Park Naturalists. During our second winter, actually the next seven, we built our house. I had been a carpenter during college in California and ultimately ended up leaving the Park Service to become a boat builder, which I did for the next 20 years. My wife is a school teacher in a small town on the island. Our two daughters have grown up here; one is in college and the other is getting ready to graduate from high school. Mt. Desert Island is a great vacation getaway, but also an amazing place to live and raise a family. We hope you enjoy it as much as we have!

A Great Maine Vacation

  • 5 of 5
Extremely nice owners were very helpful through the entire process - close to all the beauty of Acadia National Park &
the fun of Bar Harbor. House in a very quiet setting great for stress relief. Our fears of no air conditioning were not warranted - cool nights kept the house comfortable all day long. Had great cookouts on the deck. Everyone liked the deer that seemed to stop by to visit us.
Highly recommended !

Fantastic Time!!

  • 5 of 5
We had a absolutely great time during the two weeks we stayed at the house. The surroundings were beautiful, peaceful and quiet and the house is set well back from the road. Great place to walk the dog as there was very little traffic on the road. Easy access to all the wonderful things on offer on the "Quiet Side" of MDI, such as Echo Lake, Acadia Mountain and South West Harbor (the Milagro coffee shop is awesome!!).
The kitchen was very well equipped. The beds were very comfortable, and the linens were fresh and new. The owners were very accessible and responsive, making sure we had everything we needed.
We look forward coming back next year!!

Awesome Place for Families

  • 5 of 5
We had a fantastic stay at your beautiful home. It was a great place for our children to unwind and shoot some hoops, ride their bikes around the neighborhood and our little ones to go frog hunting. We saw lots of deer in the neighborhood. It was also centrally located to everything. A short ride over to Bar Harbor and Acadia Park Loop. Loved visiting Echo Lake and Long Pond. Thanks so much for all the tips on hiking with our children. Had a great time. We will be back soon.
