Singing Hill is a shingle style cottage on the corner of High Road and South Causeway Lane. The massive field-stone fireplace is the centerpiece of the large living room. Its original beamed ceiling and paneled walls are in the 1920’s Arts and Crafts style. The living room has a flat screen TV, DVR, Blue Ray DVD player, WiFi, books, games, and a game table. A Dutch door connects the living room with a large covered porch with cushioned chairs, a hammock, and tables and chairs for outdoor dining for 12. The first floor also includes an eat-in Maine kitchen with dishwasher; a formal dining room; a den with flat-screen TV and Blue Ray DVD player; a bath with shower; and a laundry with washer and dryer. Upstairs, there are four bedrooms: two with a queen bed in each, one with two twin beds and one with three twin beds. There is a Pack n Play available for young children. There is also a full bath with a clawfoot tub/shower unit.
This peaceful home is located near many desirable destinations: a short walk down Causeway Lane leads to the edge of the ocean and historic Mill Dam causeway, across which lies the Causeway Club’s public golf course; for hikers, a short walk beyond the Clubhouse is Flying Mountain with dramatic views of Somes Sound, the East Coast’s only natural fjord. The center of town is a five-minute walk, with restaurants, shops, library, post office, the Wendell Gilley bird-carving museum, and the free Island Explorer bus provides access to many of the beautiful sights for which Acadia National Park is renowned. Beal’s Lobster Pier is a ten minute walk; there, at the Captain’s Galley, you may order a lobster dinner to eat on their picnic tables overlooking Southwest Harbor, or you may purchase lobsters and seafood to cook at home. Bar Harbor is a twenty-minute drive with many shops, restaurants and museums, and Acadia National Park Headquarters there provides educational programs and literature on scenic areas throughout the Park.

"Singing Hill" surpassed our expectations. It was the cleanest and most well organized house we've ever rented, and was a short walk to a lovely, little village with shops and restaurants. The wrap-around porch was the nicest I've ever sat on, with a hammock which we practically fought over! It was our first time in The Bar Harbor area, and we can't wait to go back. Don't hesitate to rent this beautiful home with floor-to-ceiling fireplace and kitchen window through which you will see hummingbirds on a daily basis.
Stay in the quiet village of Southwest Harbor with it's restaurants, galleries, shops, churches and the Wendell Gilley Museum of bird carving. The Captain's Galley at Beal's Lobster Pier is a wonderful place for lunch or dinner on the Harbor. The busy village of Bar Harbor is 15 miles away with lots to do . The Jordan Pond House in Seal Harbor is a treat for afternoon tea and popovers or a full meal at lunch or dinner. Acadia National Park has beautiful vistas all over Mt. Desert Island. Explore by car or the free Island Explorer bus.
