About the property

House, 4 Bedrooms, 2.5 Baths, (Sleeps 8)

Kimball Bungalow is a 75 year old cottage within the town of Northeast Harbor. It has a large Master Bedroom with a fireplace and a living room with fireplace. The kitchen and bathrooms are clean and well equipped. The house is spacious and ideal for a family or two small families. There are games and books and a large porch facing south overlooking the private garden.

With quiet streets and coastal views, walking or biking is the best way to get around town. Shuttles to Acadia National Park and ferries to nearby islands leave frequently from locations within walking distance. The harbor is just down the hill from the house and there is a convenient boat ramp next to the main dock.

Hiking and biking are famous in this area because of the extensive 'Carriage Trails' that run through Acadia Park. A favorite hike takes you to the Jordon Pond House where you can have 'Tea and Popovers' before the hike down.

About heidi fitz

My husband and I bought this house when we sold our condo in Sugarloaf. We both come from families that have returned to Northeast Harbor over 3 or 4 generations. Northeast Harbor is home to us and a place we have loved sharing with our children. Now grandparents, we hope for the same long relationship with a beautiful place.

Why heidi fitz chose Bar Harbor and Mount Desert Island

This property is very private and yet located in the heart of Northeast Harbor. It's an easy walk to buy milk, watch the boats at Sea Street Dock or take a shuttle to Acadia Park. From here, even young children can walk or bike to most things.

What makes this cottage unique

A sunny, private home that is available in the summer season only!

Delightful in-town cottage

  • 5 of 5

We found this house to be very comfortable. It is extremely close to the main street in Northeast Harbor, where there is a grocery, bakery, cafe, and plenty of shops to explore. The bus to Acadia and Bar Harbor runs right past the house. The house itself is bright and airy with high ceilings. It has a lovely deck and we ate outside several times. The beds were extremely comfortable with high quality linens. The layout is a little interesting, with one bedroom upstairs and the others downstairs, which allowed for a private hideaway. The kitchen, though smallish in terms of work surfaces, was well equipped with decent knives and ample glassware, dishes and pots/pans. The bathrooms are a bit old-fashioned (the kids got a kick out of the separate hot/cold water faucets).

The cottage is in the village of Northeast Harbor which is a 20 min. drive from Bar Harbor and adjacent to Acadia National Park. The hikes are endless in this area and include spectacular views of coastal island, Somes Sound and Cadillac Mt. There are ferries that travel daily to islands in the area and the Mt Desert region offers great shopping, restaurants and activities.
