Overview

Bar Harbor House Rental Photos and Description

House, 3 Bedrooms + Loft, 2.5 Baths, (Sleeps 5-7)

Our newly built post and beam home is set in beautiful secluded woods, in the heart of Mount Desert Island. The house is open and airy with lots of windows looking out on lush pine forest and perennial gardens. The mountain tops of Acadia can be seen from the cozy cupola, accessed by a wooden ship's ladder. It's the perfect place for a morning coffee or a good book. The house is nicely furnished with antiques, rustic furniture and oriental rugs. The gourmet kitchen has copper counters and a vintage farm sink. The gas range looks out on the open living space, ideal for entertaining or cooking with family.

The house is approximately 15 minutes from most towns on Mount Desert Island, including- Bar Harbor, Northeast Harbor, Southwest Harbor,Acadia National Park, and Ellsworth, yet feels miles away. The village of Town Hill has a small market and two great restaurants. Our's is a unique house with character and charm, ideally located near all the area has to offer.

Why The Owner chose Bar Harbor and Mount Desert Island

All my childhood summers were spent in this area. after college, i vowed to become a year round resident. i met my husband, whose family was one of the first settling families centuries ago. after many years living on an outer island off the coast of mount desert, we built this house. we worked very hard to come up with the perfect location and feeling for the house. we love that it is so quiet and serene yet close to work and school for our family. this is our full time home. we spend the summer on cranberry island so are happy to have the house used and loved while we are there.

Lovely house just as described, close to everything important, yet private and remote. The photos are accurate and the property was clean and nicely maintained. Questions are cheerfully answered and I would recommend the property without hesitation.
