About Jennifer Mandler

Born and raised in Bar Harbor, I currently live in New Jersey with my husband and two kids. We spend several weeks a year at the house, and enjoy beachcombing, hiking and biking in Acadia National Park.

Jennifer Mandler purchased this house in 1995

Why Jennifer Mandler chose Bar Harbor and Mount Desert Island

This beautiful property has been in my family for generations. The house was custom-built in 1995.

What makes this house unique

I love waking up in the morning and seeing the amazing water views from my bedroom. We love to take a picnic to the cove or walk to the Nature Conservancy preserve next door. It is really our little paradise.

Stunning water views & private cove near Acadia National Park
average rating of 5.0 based on 10 reviews

Absolutely amazing!

  • 5 of 5

First off, I just have to say that the pictures do not do this house, or the view, justice! I took that advice from another reviewer and I am in complete agreement! The house is situated on a private lot-can't see another house!-atop a hill/mountain with a fabulous view of the water and the woods. The deck was by far my favorite part. The house was immaculate, comfortable and spacious enough for 8 of us. It is far enough from the busy touristy town/national park that you literally feel like you're in your own world out there, but only about 10 minutes to get yo anywhere you need to go on the island. The weather was perfect-warm during the day, cool at night. I would recommend this house and this vacation 20 times over...couldn't have been better!

Just a side note if you do end up renting, do NOT go to Brandon and Laura's Cafe in SW harbor. The waitstaff were incredibly rude, Like they couldn't be bothered with us. It was a rotten experience. However Cafe 2 is right down the road an the food is amazing and the people are friendly!

Already planning on going back again! Great time!

A Week to Remember

  • 5 of 5

Where do I start? Treetops is a place to remember. It's location is extremely accessible to the small wonderful towns in the surrounding area. But the view, which is seen from almost every room in the house, would make any traveler want to stay indefinitely. The owners were the absolute best to work with through the entire process. They made us feel comfortable traveling 100s of miles away with our family. No detail was left undone. The kitchen fully stocked with coffee maker, toaster, microwave, every utensil necessary; even glad lock zip bags were there which we used to keep our seashells. We had extra linens, games, great books and magazines filled the house, along with great information on the adventures one could take while visiting. It was an absolute dream for my family as well as myself. The pictures online do not do justice of Treetop, you have to see it for yourself to appreciate it's beauty and all the little things the owners have successfully remembered to make it feel like home. There is no doubt that we will be visiting Maine again, and for that brief but pleasure moment, we'll make Treetop our temporary home. Thanks for the memories : )

The Essence of Maine

  • 5 of 5

"Treetops" is a great house, spacious and comfortable with the best equipped kitchen we've ever seen in a vacation rental. Tree top views of the bay and islands are spectacular from the living room,dining room, deck and bedrooms. A private trail to a secluded cove is a true Acadia experience.

From the house deck we watched Eagles, Osprey and Deer to the accompaniment of Loons.

Located on the less traveled side of Mount Desert Island, the house is still close to the Park, Southwest Harbor and the best home made pies at Town Hill Market.

We hope to visit Treetops again.

Eden On Earth

  • 5 of 5

We spent a week at the house in September and aside from the weather it was perfect. My husband and I, our two daughters and son in law, and the twins had ample space to be together or apart which is essential. I especially liked not having a TV in the living room because it gave us the rare opportunity to have some wonderful conversations. The view from the deck is glorious and offered another get away. The house is just as comfortable as my own but the scenery is much more beautiful in Maine.

Treetops Tremendous!!!

  • 5 of 5

What a tremendous house, a tremendous view and a tremendous time we had at this lovely Maine vacation house! The house was emaculate and beautifully decorated. Two teenage daughters, my husband and I had a fabulous vacation stay in this gorgeous rental. Just minutes from downtown Bar Harbor within minutes of all the great touristy places. The listing had a perfectly accurate description of all the amenities. The owner was a marvelous help to us regarding things to do on both sunny and rainy days and we took full advantage of all of the suggested places to visit, dine and hike. Overall pure perfection!

Guests comprising six family members including adult and junior high children

  • 5 of 5

This beautiful place exceeded our most imaginative expectations even though we had thoroughly researched it. You are up high with spectacular ocean views from the expansive deck and from almost every room in the house including 3 of the 4 bedrooms. Close to every thing. Isolated with no other house in site. Our family loved the evenings and mornings in the house as much as we loved any other aspect of our 8 day trip. We guarantee you will fall in love with it as we did.
