Overview

Bar Harbor and Mount Desert Island House Rental Photos and Description

Cedar View is a sweet cottage in an excellent location. It is tucked in the woods on 16 acres of land that abuts Acadia National Park. Very private setting but easily accessible to town, the harbor and many great hikes. It is located on picturesque Fernald Point Road. At the head of the road is the Causeway Golf Course and on the other end is the Acadia National Park trail head for Flying Mountain and Valley Cove. Flying Mountain is a family friendly hike with breathtaking views of the islands. Valley Cove is a stunning, cliff lined cove, accessible down a bike and stroller friendly fire road. The cottage is one mile walk into town over the mill dam, with gorgeous views of the harbor. The town of Southwest Harbor has shops, restaurants, a playground and of course the harbor, where there are numerous tour boat and sailing opportunities.

The house itself is a two bedroom, second floor living cottage. Main floor includes open living room, kitchen and dining area, a bedroom with a queen bed and a full bathroom with washer and dryer. The second floor extended loft has one full and one twin bed, walk-in closet and full bath with soaking tub. There is a pull out sofa in the living room and a wrap around porch to sit and enjoy the morning birds or evening breeze. Wireless internet, TV and DVD player, BBQ. Walking distance to Acadia trails, golf course and the quaint town of Southwest Harbor.

Why Anna Eschholz chose Bar Harbor and Mount Desert Island

Cedar View is a sweet cottage in an excellent location. It is tucked in the woods on 16 acres of land that abuts Acadia National Park. Very private setting but easily accessible to town, the harbor and many great hikes. It is located on picturesque Fernald Point Road. At the head of the road is the Causeway Golf Course and on the other end is the Acadia National Park trail head for Flying Mountain and Valley Cove. Flying Mountain is a family friendly hike with breathtaking views of the islands. Valley Cove is a stunning, cliff lined cove, accessible down a bike and stroller friendly fire road. The cottage is a 1.5 mile walk into town over the mill dam, with gorgeous views of the harbor. The town of Southwest Harbor has shops, restaurants, a playground and of course the harbor, where there are numerous tour boat and sailing opportunities.

What makes this house unique

Star Gazing and listening to the many sounds of the woods while sitting on the porch and catching distant glimpses of the light out on Baker Island is just about as relaxing as you can get.

Great spot!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I stayed over the week of the 4th of July. This was our 3rd time to Acadia, and I don't think you could find a better place to stay in Southwest Harbor. Extremely convenient to everything, Flying Mountain (a great family hike) is literally at the end of the road! Echo Lake is less than a 5 min drive, downtown is less than a mile. My wife was blown away by how clean the house was. The best part was that my 6 year old accidentally locked some of his gear in a closet. Anna (the owner) was extremely accommodating, coming back to the house twice on a Sunday to help us pick the lock. Stay here, you won't be disappointed!

Just what we needed for our MDI trip!!

  • 5 of 5

Cedar View was just perfect for us...My husband and myself, plus another couple we traveled with. It had everything we needed - and was a nice, quiet place to retreat to after a full day of walking trails, hiking, checking out Acadia National Park. Comfortable and very functional too!!!

Perfect Home Base!

  • 5 of 5

Cedar View was a great home base for our family's week-long vacation on Mount Desert Island. We have been vacationing in Maine for several years and found this to be by far the best location. The house was clean and comfortable; and gave our teenage daughters space to themselves (with their own separate bath!) to unwind after busy days of hiking and biking in Acadia National Park. We loved being so close to hiking trails and a short jaunt into Southwest Harbor for dinner or dessert. We enjoyed watching the firefly light- show every evening and the tranquil location. We highly recommend!

Lovely Stay in Southwest Harbor!

  • 5 of 5

Our family recently spent several days at this lovely home. Our daughter recently relocated to Boston, and we were looking for a fun place to enjoy a family vacation with driving distance. We found it! Southwest Harbor and the surrounding area provided many of the activities/qualities we were looking for: hiking, sightseeing, great weather, good food options. The home was very comfortable and with all the amenities we needed. The one time we needed an item we could not locate, we simply asked the owner and before we knew it, our request was answered. This is the best way I can sum up our experience. I was on the phone with the daughter we went to visit the other day, and I asked her how she was doing. Her response was, "Fine. But I really wish we were back at the house in Maine together." We couldn't agree more!

Loved it!

  • 5 of 5

The location was quiet and private yet very convenient for sightseeing on the island. The house was clean, well kept, and well furnished. We have no complaints.

Everything was just right!

  • 5 of 5

Our family has rented a number of vacation rental homes, both in the US and abroad. Usually, there comes a point in our stay when one of us says, "it would really be nice if this house had a ______." Not this time.There isn't a thing about the home that I would change. The home itself is clean, roomy and comfortable, perfect for our family of five. It is clear that the owners have put much thought into creating a relaxing rental experience, from their design of the house to their selection of environmentally friendly cleaning products. The location was perfect for us in all respects. The home is surrounded by woods, and is within walking distance of some great hiking trails, the sound, and shops and restaurants in SW Harbor. (I do not know why anyone would choose to stay in Bar Harbor instead of SW Harbor unless their primary activity is visiting t-shirt shops.) To keep this review brief, I will say "ditto" as to all of the glowing reviews of the home, and add that I doubt that one could find a better value in a rental home on Mount Desert Island. We would definitely stay here again. Well done!

The quiet-side of Mount Desert Island. Hiking, biking, sailing and shopping are all right here. The property abuts Acadia National Park and is in walking distance to hiking trails, the golf course and the quaint town of Southwest Harbor. Flying Mountain trail, a family friendly hike with gorgeous views of the islands, begins at the end of Fernald Point Road.
