Picture windows looking east, with views of Gorham Mountain and the meadow, make this home feel like it is in Acadia National Park, rather than merely surrounded by it.
In the afternoon, relax on your private back deck, watching songbirds and meadow wildlife. Or sit by the frog pond enjoying a good book and the clear Maine air. There's a large back yard, a hammock for lazy days and moonlit nights and when you're ready to hit the hiking, biking, kayaking, canoeing or garden trails we'll point you to the local favorites.
Acadia Meadow is stocked with fresh herbs and vegetables (in season) from our organic garden, books, including Maine authors, local guides and great area maps: we think, like the 'rusticators' of times past, you'll want to return to Acadia Meadow year after year.
I was born and raised in Bar Harbor and Tod grew up in Marin County, California. We owned and operated Bar Harbor Brewing Company and retired after selling the business in 2008. We love to garden, hike, bike, fish, gather wild mushrooms and berries and play tennis. I love to cook; creating dinner menus from the organic vegetables in Tod's garden is a highlight of each summer day. This summer Tod has taken a job as seasonal gardener at Thuya Gardens, a beautiful English Border Garden ten minutes from Acadia Meadow. I am having fun working at the Jordan Pond House Information Desk in Acadia National Park, five minutes from Acadia Meadow - Founded in the 1890's JPH serves traditional tea and popovers with strawberry jam
as well as lunch and dinner.
We fell in love with the house and 2+ acre property. You can hike out your back door into Acadia National Park. The backyard opens out to a beautiful meadow teeming with wildlife. And yet we're 4 miles from downtown Bar Harbor.
Stars, stars and more stars at night. The night sky from the back yard adirondack chairs is the greatest show on earth. Wildlife, including deer, pileated woodpeckers, fireflies & hummingbirds can be seen regularly while relaxing on your back deck. Location is surrounded by the most wonderful places to explore in Acadia National Park - if you forget something, or want to come home for lunch, we're just around the corner. Free Island Explorer Bus stops outside your front door June 23 to mid-October.
Acadia Meadow is the entire left wing of the house.
