Overview

Bar Harbor House Rental Photos and Description

4 Bedrooms, 3.5 Baths (Sleeps 8)

Eastern Bay Retreat: Set upon treasured Frenchman Bay, this spacious shorefront home offers a lovely private retreat from which to enjoy your visit to Bar Harbor and Acadia National Park. Wake each morning to water views, a pretty lawn and professionally landscaped gardens. Native plants such as wild blueberries, blackberries and ferns will surely draw your eye, but also keep a look out for deer, fox, squirrels, raccoons and eagles. When you’re ready to venture out, relax or stroll along your own private stretch of shore and watch for seals and dolphins playing in the water or paddle out to join them in one of the kayaks provided. At high tide, a short paddle will take you through a stone arch or pack a picnic at low tide and venture further around the point to the shallow waterside caves with pebble beaches known as the Ovens.

FIRST FLOOR: Living Room with cathedral ceilings and wood-burning fireplace offers a large sectional sofa, flat-screen TV, DVD and a wall of windows that look out to Frenchman Bay. Also with water views, the Dining Room offers a table for eight, extra folding chairs, a side cabinet with bar-size fridge and access to the furnished Screened Porch. Fully equipped Kitchen with granite counters, dual-heat range with warming drawer and a breakfast table for four looks out to a pretty front lawn and garden. Master Bedroom suite with water views and king bed enjoys a private Bathroom with sauna, jetted tub, separate step-in shower and double vanity. Laundry with large capacity washer and dryer. Half Bathroom.

SECOND FLOOR: Upstairs you will find a sunny Sitting Area with wet bar lofted above the living room. This area is winged on one side by a Bedroom with queen, Bathroom with combined tub and shower and a Den with TV and sofabed. The second wing offers a Bedroom with queen and water views and a Bedroom with twins. These two bedrooms share a Bathroom with spacious seated shower, no tub.

PORCH/DECK: A covered Front Porch looks out to the lawn and garden. A Screened-in porch and an Outdoor Deck with Gas Grill each offer comfortable furnishings and views of Frenchman Bay.

APPLIANCES: More than standard amenities include a dual-heat range, warming drawer, microwave, and dishwashing drawers. Wireless cable Internet, two TVs with basic cable, DVD and BlueRay. Whole house back-up generator, towel warmers in two bathrooms and radiant-floor heating. Gas Grill.

EXTRAS: A finished basement with Ping-Pong table includes other games to take to the lawn outside. A paved driveway leads to a 3-car garage where you will find PFDs, paddles and one double kayak and two single Otters.

Excellent family vacation

  • 5 of 5

We recently stayed at Eastern Bay Retreat and enjoyed every minute of it. The property is located conveniently, very close to both Acadia National Park entrance and Bar Harbor. The house is in excellent condition, supplied with all amenities and nice extras, as kayaks, which we really enjoyed, especially at sunset.

We had a great experience overall, excellent weather during our stay, and the place is very beautiful and relaxing. The owner provided us with very useful information regarding restaurants, places to go, shopping, sightseeing, etc. It's a place we would love to go back, no doubt about it.

Early October in Maine

An excellent choice this year for our annual family vacation. Great location for a house well supplied wth all needed amenities. (And I do believe we tried them all). We loved the Acadia Park hiking/running adventures as well as the downtown shopping trips and views, views, views. The owner made it a "very easy" rental experience and provided us with a lot of valuable advance information.
