This storybook cottage is situated on five wooded acres on the ""quiet side" of Bar Harbor, just a short walk or bike ride to the gorgeous oceanfront Nature Conservancy Preserve and just shy of fifteen minutes to "downtown" and Acadia's main entrances. Gardens line the property, with birds and deer regularly passing through the yard. A screened room is great for relaxing, and there's a tree-house, fire pit, and hammock to add to the enjoyment. There are 5 bikes available to ride to the Nature Preserve and a canoe available to explore Western Bay or Long Pond. Entrances to Acadia's beautiful carriage trails are about 10 minutes away.
Claim to fame: Sweetfern Meadow was featured on HGTV's Island Life in 2015!
In 2016 a large, tiled walk-in shower in the upstairs bath was added, so that there is a shower on each floor. And, in early 2017, the REST of the upstairs bath was renovated and the downstairs bath and laundry area also underwent renovations! 2018 brings its own set of updates, this time to the kitchen. Like to cook? A modern home-chef stove awaits your specialties, and a breakfast bar makes hanging out in the kitchen ideal.
The house is fitted with everything you need to cook up a summer feast, grill with friends, and entertain the family. You'll find the cupboards stocked with many of the little things you might need (think spices, plastic wrap, etc...), making cooking easy.
The three bedrooms are upstairs; the sitting room, office / library, kitchen, and laundry are on the first floor. There is a detached garage with bikes and the canoe for your use.
Visiting Acadia and MDI is a fantastic experience and Sweetfern Meadow will make you feel right at home!
Note: August reservations are Sat to Sat. Other times of the year there is a three night minimum.
