Sweeping panoramic scenery from large glass-railed deck. Watch the sunrise over Frenchman's Bay with your morning coffee, and set behind the western hills with a glass of wine. From your private glass-railed deck overlooking exquisite gardens and Thomas Bay, watch for eagles, blue herons, seals, and sea otters. Walk the marsh deer path to the reversing falls dam, or rent kayaks to explore the bay and coastline.

Bill and Sherri, the hosts and housekeeps. We've collected lots of info on activities, locations and restaurants in our twenty years on Mount Desert Island. We're here if there's anything you need to make your stay more enjoyable. Our guests have all taken advantage of the many amenities the Bayscape Suite, Acadia National Park and Bar Harbor have to offer. We hope you'll do the same.
The wide panoramic northerly view gives us both amazing sunrise and sunsets. There's easy access to the park and town, just a five minute drive to carriage trails and ten minutes to downtown Bar Harbor. At Bayscape, we have convenience, comfort, and a live window on the estuary, islands and bay. Thomas Bay is generally very calm, so it's also a great place to kayak!
Sherri designed and built the Bayscape residence and suite in 2000 to provide a front-row seat to the seasonal wildlife on the salt pond and bay. The scenery changes with every tide, sunrise, and season. Blue herons and egrets wade at the water's edge, buffleheads and mergansers strut and dive, and a pair of nesting eagles frequently stir up the flocks of resting ducks and gulls. The floriferous English-style garden below the suite's glass deck is filled with colorful field and song birds throughout the summer. The Bayscape residence and suite share the same oceanfront home, each with its own private entry, living and exterior spaces. It's really nice to share this beautiful home and setting, with ample privacy and space for everyone's comfort. We're here to welcome you (but might not see you again until it's time to wish you a safe journey home).
