Best location! Storks' Nest -- so called because long ago it was the town's maternity hospital -- is a large, charming home. It is attached to Arbor House (please see separate listing)), yet is separate, private and distinct. Together the houses comprise Derby Lane Cottages. Storks' Nest has its own entrance, porch and large private yard. The house is on a quiet, in-town residential street located between Frenchman Bay and Main Street. It is a short walk to the Shore Path, the Village Green with its free summer bus service for Acadia National Park and all of Bar Harbor's shops and restaurants. Use this as your base to explore the beauty of the area, as well as the variety of traditional New England villages such as Northeast Harbor, Southwest Harbor, and Somesville. Take the ferry to Nova Scotia, kayak in the protected bays and estuaries, hike the mountains, bike the carriage trails, or go on a whale-watching adventure.
The Storks' Nest (so-called because the house was a maternity hospital a long, long time ago) has 4 bedrooms (master with queen bed and full bath, #2 with queen bed, #3 with full bed, and #4 with twin beds), an upstairs hall bath, parlor, great-room/kitchen/dining/living area with books, games, cable TV and VCR for your indoor pleasure. There is a deck for alfresco dining and yard for frisbee or sunbathing.
