About Sherry Rasmussen
We have been involved the ARTs in Bar Harbor since the early 1970’s and participate in local ART events such as First Friday ART walks. Ivan, who was once Bar Harbor Harbormaster, has spent most of his life near the ocean first in his native Oregon and now on Mount Desert Island, home to Bar Harbor and Acadia National Park. Sherry traveled extensively as an international flight attendant.Though her travels took her to many beautiful destinations, she says that Mount Desert Island is truly one of the world's treasures. The beauty of the island is what drew us to Bar Harbor. The magic of the island will captivate you as well. Ivan captures the beauty of the Acadia in his watercolors that he sells in his own 'ART on West' and other galleries. Bar Harbor is one of Maine's most walkable communities so we live right in the downtown nfor the convenience of walking to movies, theater, dining, boating, shopping and more. Like us, our visitors walk or bike into Acadia National Park. A free bus runs from mid-June to mid-October from the Village of Bar Harbor into Acadia National Park and to neighboring Villages. We are often asked if Bar Harbor is near Acadia National Park. Our downtown is surrounded by Acadia National Park and the nearby Bar Island is just a short walk from your suite. Did you know that the 'bar' to Bar Island is the reason for the name of Bar Harbor? You can see Bar Island from your suite. It is one of several islands of Acadia and the only one that is walkable from Bar Harbor! We love to share our community and island with visitors from around the world. You check in for your week at our 'ART on West Gallery'. We are there to get you started on a perfect vacation.

Fantastic week , fantastic location
From the time of booking to the end of our stay, Sherry was always very helpful and provided us with all the information we needed to make our stay enjoyable. The apartment is very spacious and has everything you need. The location is perfect and the view is exactly as we see on the pictures. We will be back. Thank you Sherry and Ivan.
A Bar Harbor Gem
We are so thankful that Sherry and Ivan shared this special place with us. They were the most wonderful hosts. The apartment was so clean and spacious. The view was spectacular. We will miss having our coffee in the morning and watching the world go by. After spending the day at Acadia, it was nice to be within walking distance of everything downtown Bar Harbor has to offer, including the restaurants, shops, and beautiful Shore Path. We hope to travel back to Bar Harbor again and visit this wonderful place. It is the perfect home away from home.
The location was perfect. You have a view of the water from the balcony. You are downtown and everything is walking distance. Access to Acadia was great also. Sherry was very helpful and sent a ton of information to us to review before we arrived.
Wonderful location! Great hostess!
Great Bar Harbor vacation spot
We love this location. We can easily walk anywhere in town. The view over Frenchman’s bay is beautiful. Sherry and Ivan are very nice and helpful. I always enjoy staying at their property.
So nice that these folks came back to the West Street Waterfront for another visit with us. This time they had a chance to explore the Schoodic Peninsula and even tried our favorite Ellsworth restaurant. There is so much to do on Mt. Desert Island and many off island day trips. It is a long way from their home to Maine but hope they make it back to visit us in Bar Harbor again sometime! We surely enjoy hosting such lovely people.
The property was wonderful and the owners were so accommodating.
The property had a great view. The apartment was well supplied and extremely clean. The owners were so nice and very informative. I would highly recommend this place.
