About Shaun Farrar
One of us writes books for children and young adults. The other one has spent most of his adult life protecting and serving the people of Bar Harbor. This house on Ledgelawn is where we spent a lot of happy time, celebrating the awesomeness that is Bar Harbor.
Shaun Farrar purchased this House in 2011
Why Shaun Farrar chose Bar Harbor
We bought this property because we love Bar Harbor and its quirky, outdoorsy appeal. Ledgelawn Avenue has always been a place for families. Even though Bar Harbor is so small, thousands of trick-or-treaters come to our door. On the Fourth of July, the parade stages at the ballfield and finishes on this street. This is small town America at its best. Right here. And then there's the park. You can run out the door, turn left and in less than five minutes, you are in one of the most beautiful places in the country. It's hard to beat that.
What makes this House unique
We love the front porch, the neighbors. We love the way the lilacs smell in Spring and the way the cook-outs smell in the summer. The back yard with its deck and trees just beyond the fence, make you feel secluded even though it's just a short jaunt into town. There are lots of tiny quirks in the house like an occasional old-fashioned light fixture, double ovens, and an overall light and airy feel.

Great location Acadia
Very comfortable house, great location, enjoyed sitting on front porch, short walk to downtown Bar Harbor, easy bike access to Acadia
We will be back!
This is our 4th time staying at this wonderful home away from home for our week in Maine, and we will be back! The location of this home is perfect -- close to all the amenities of town, but far enough to have quiet nights of listening to the crickets chirp while you sleep. We shop for some groceries when we arrive, and then make our picnic lunch each day so we can spend as much time in Acadia National Park as possible. The fully-equipped kitchen is perfect for our needs. We LOVE this house, and Shaun and Carrie are such wonderful hosts. We always enjoy the blueberry pie! I highly recommend this home for your trip to Bar Harbor -- just don't book our week. LOL We will be back in 2020!
Cute house, very close to town
The place was perfect, just as advertised.
An amazing property in a perfect location. Walking distance to down but still quiet and quaint.
We cannot wait to come back for another visit.
We had a great stay thank you
We're at the end of Ledgelawn Ave, and it's a straight shot right (five minute walk) to the Park Loop Road and Acadia National Park. The playground, the YMCA and the ballfield with a basketball court is within a three-minute walk.You can see the mountains from the upstairs windows. Walking to the village of Bar Harbor takes less than five minutes. The ocean. The mountains. The town. You can beat it!
This is the park's big anniversary! Come enjoy it!
