About Sherry Rasmussen
We have been involved the ARTs in Bar Harbor since the early 1970’s and participate in local ART events such as First Friday ART walks. Ivan, who was once Bar Harbor Harbormaster, has spent most of his life near the ocean first in his native Oregon and now on Mount Desert Island, home to Bar Harbor and Acadia National Park. Sherry traveled extensively as an international flight attendant.Though her travels took her to many beautiful destinations, she says that Mount Desert Island is truly one of the world's treasures. The beauty of the island is what drew us to Bar Harbor. The magic of the island will captivate you as well. Ivan captures the beauty of the Acadia in his watercolors that he sells in his own 'ART on West' and other galleries. Bar Harbor is one of Maine's most walkable communities so we live right in the downtown nfor the convenience of walking to movies, theater, dining, boating, shopping and more. Like us, our visitors walk or bike into Acadia National Park. A free bus runs from mid-June to mid-October from the Village of Bar Harbor into Acadia National Park and to neighboring Villages. We are often asked if Bar Harbor is near Acadia National Park. Our downtown is surrounded by Acadia National Park and the nearby Bar Island is just a short walk from your suite. Did you know that the 'bar' to Bar Island is the reason for the name of Bar Harbor? You can see Bar Island from your suite. It is one of several islands of Acadia and the only one that is walkable from Bar Harbor! We love to share our community and island with visitors from around the world. You check in for your week at our 'ART on West Gallery'. We are there to get you started on a perfect vacation.
Sherry Rasmussen purchased this Apartment in 1976

Our Best Trip To Bar Harbor
The property is located in the very heart of down town Bar Harbor with easy access to all the wonderful attractions in the area. The apartment was very clean and fully furnished with all the amenity's you could ever need during your stay. From bedding and cookware to brochures and even grocery bags with a grocery store just a few minutes walk from your front door! Climate control was very comfortable with two air conditioners and plenty of heat when required. The overall apartment was very spacious and had a great view of the harbor. We enjoyed sitting on the balcony taking in all of the night life that Bar Harbor has to offer. The owners were extremely helpful and knowledgeable about all the activities going on and all of the wonderful attractions in the area. The ability to walk to any shop or restaurant while leaving the car behind in your very own private parking space was superb. To the Sherry and Ivan we tip our hats to a wonderful home away from home and we look forward to staying again!
Sherry was there to meet us when we arrived, and showed us all around the apartment, telling us about the amenities as well as talking about things to do in the area. We like to stay where we can fix many of our own meals and were very pleased to have a kitchen with everything we needed. There was even a lettuce spinner! (I eat a lot of salad, so that was a real plus for me, and we don't often find them in rental houses.)
We hiked many of the trails in Acadia National Park and enjoyed evenings at the apartment on the balcony overlooking West Street with all the activity there. The bed was comfortable and we had a reserved parking space.
I can't think of anything that we needed/wanted that wasn't available. (I also noticed and appreciated several pottery pieces that must have been Sherry's art work - beautiful!)
Thank you so much Sherry & Ivan
Property was as described. Great location. Close to everything in Bar Harbor and Acadia park. Sherri was great to work with and went out of her way to provide information that could help us enjoy our stay. Would definitely stay here again next time we are in Bar Harbor.
The property is very nice and in the perfect location. We especially enjoyed being able to walk to dinner after a day in Acadia. Sherry and Ivan are perfect hosts.
Couldn’t ask for anything better
Where do I start. The balcony with the view of the harbor. The location close to everything but yet just right so you don’t get the noise. Your own parking spot. Able to walk to dinner, grocery, tour boats.
The accommodations were just right. Very, very clean. Comfee bed. Full size refrig. Perfect sized bathroom. Just a nice spacious unit.
And the hosts were perfect. Very helpful and informative. Made themselves available but never intrusive.
If someone were to ask me where to stay I would say here!
