About Alice Walls

Husbands family grew up in this beautiful area. I am the transplant as the saying goes. The place is just beautiful, horses in the field across the road, nice sunsets and just far enough away from the hub bub of town. It has been the best place to raise our family and i can't imagine us having done it anywhere else Our house has undergone many changes over the years but the home and love that was shared here will always be part of all of us. As my husband and I enter into this new phase of our life we hope you enjoy the surroundings of our home as we have. Alice and Robin Walls.

Alice Walls purchased this house in 1985

Why Alice Walls chose Bar Harbor and Mount Desert Island

We are about as close to the middle of Acadia National Park as one can be when visiting Mount Desert Island. The free shuttle will pick you up at the top of our driveway or you can walk or bike all over the island from the door yard. Plenty of room to relax in outside yard or enclosed screened deck,to be enjoyed as if you were in your own home.

What makes this house unique

Outside deck for sunning, screened in section for bug free dining. Plenty of space for couples, families and in-laws too. No in-town noise and lights so star gazing possible too.

Great central location and on MDI to easily get down to Bar Harbor or into Acadia NP.

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed the house and property. Set back from the road it is very quiet. Bigger inside than the front view would make you think. Fun layout that suited our family: 2 adults with 5 kids (ages 2-10), perfectly. Enjoyed the fire pit out back and the well appointed kitchen. For a family our size, it was also really nice to have an oversized washer and dryer. Alice and Robin were very gracious and popped by to make sure we weren't lacking anything. Very relaxing place to come back to while spending a week out in nature (the Great Head Trail in Acadia was one of the more beautiful hikes you'll ever find)!

Great location, very cozy home with lots of amenities that will make your stay a pleasure!

  • 4 of 5

We spent a week at this lovely house with our three children and au pair. There was plenty of space and the house was incredibly cozy with a well-stocked kitchen, which enabled us to cook meals easily. The sofas are cozy and there was plenty of towels and linen. The backyard is huge, the fire pit was great and the back deck was lovely. We really loved our stay - you can't beat the location, as it's about 10-15 min from most everything on the island.

The one issue was that the second bathroom (downstairs) is en suite to a bedroom, which could make a house share challenging if folks are not flexible.

Great vacation area!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of seven plus dogs had the best vacation here. The home was more than I expected. We were able to spend time in Bar Harbor and access Acadia very easily. Nothing we did required more than a ten minute ride. Plus the dogs loved walking around Eagle Lake in the evening. Alice thought of everything! It really feels like home.

Amazing Hosts and Spot!

  • 5 of 5

Staying at Alice's house for a 2nd time, it has only gotten better in terms of exploring and using as a home base for my entire family. It always feel like coming home after a long day of exploring and looking forward to our next trip back!

Fantastic!

  • 5 of 5

This house is very conveniently location for visiting Acadia NP, Bar Harbor, surrounding harbor towns and all the available outdoor activities like kayaking, hiking trails or carriage roads. We traveled as a family group of 8 - husband and me with our two adult daughters, their spouses and 2 toddler grandsons. The house was clean, well stocked for cooking, with plenty of nice thick fluffy towels. The picture doesn't do the home justice. It is much larger than appears with 3 full bedrooms and a smaller bonus room with a twin that could be used as a fourth bedroom which we used for the toddlers pack n plays. The screened porch was wonderful for evening meals and the large open deck, big backyard and fire pit area provided a lot of space for the boys to release some energy. Would highly recommend staying at Alice and Rob's property!
