This is our home, and we would love to share it with you! Located on Federal Street, Moose Manor is a 1904 New England-style house with all the upgrades and conveniences of modern living. Freshly painted throughout with exquisite, fully-equipped designer kitchen and a fully updated bath. All the comforts of home in one perfect location, walking distance to everything.
There are 3 bedrooms which comfortably sleep 6. One bedroom has a queen bed, the second has one full and twin bed, and the third has a twin. There is one bathroom (with a wonderful claw-foot tub!) on the second floor. Each bedroom includes wall mirrors to reduce demand for bathroom mirror time. Master bedroom includes a dressing table with light/mirror. All bedrooms have abundant sunshine and ocean breezes.
The front of the house features a wonderful enclosed porch with a bistro table/chairs, rocker and futon. Perfect for morning coffee or an afternoon nap. The soft sound of local seagulls is often present.
In the back of the house, just off the kitchen, you'll find a small wood deck with a Weber grill and chairs to enjoy the cool afternoon breeze while your steak is grilling.
The kitchen has everything you'll need if you choose to prepare some of your own meals during your stay, including some basic pantry items for your use. Top-of-the-line small appliances (including Bunn coffee maker!) are available as well. Other items include Belgian waffle maker, 4 slice Cuisinart toaster, blender, food-processor, Crock Pot, pots/pans and bake-ware as well as an OVER-SIZED lobster pot for boiling your own 'catch' right at home! Easy instructions provided.
Although you'll probably want to get out and enjoy all that Bar Harbor and Acadia National Park has to offer, the home is also supplied with 'rainy day items' should you choose to stay indoors. 32' LCD TV, DVD player, iPod dock/radio, and a wide selection of books, DVDs and games are available for your enjoyment.

We are Paul and Joy Strathman and we have lived in the Midwest for the past 20 years. It all began when we took a trip to Maine, simply because we'd never been there before.
Since then, we've been back to various parts of Coastal Maine every year and while we enjoy all the towns we've visited, we have fallen hopelessly in love with Bar Harbor. As so often happens when one visits a very special place, one's mind wanders into the possibilities of someday living there.
Our home in Bar Harbor is truly a dream come true. This 1904 New England-style residence is perfectly located right in town; walking distance to everything. We have filled Moose Manor with things we love and have included all the comforts that we enjoy when we are there. We hope that you will enjoy our very special home and likewise fall in love with Bar Harbor.
Paul Strathman purchased this house in 2013
While on one of our early visits to Bar Harbor, we went for a walk. As we passed by this house, my wife said, 'Paul, please buy me that porch!' We both chuckled and continued our walk. Little did we know that we would not only someday buy the porch, but the wonderful home which sits behind it as well!
This inviting home has been lovingly cared for by each owner since the house was built in 1904. We are only the 4th family to own this property. The warmth and charm of Moose Manor is captivating and it's fabulous location cannot be beat!
This house and its hosts are excellent! You can walk just a block or two and hop on the shuttle to tour Acadia National Park, have your pick of any restaurant, souvenier shop, walk the shore path, see a movie, take a boat cruise... the house is right in the town and is quintessential Bar Harbour. Cozy enclosed front porch, wonderful kitchen and dining area and wood stove to keep you warm. We even made our own lobsters one night. The home is exceptionally clean and well appointed. It has everything you need including a barbque pit, and nice patio area. You will have the perfect stay! I definitely want to come back!
What a wonderful home and location! The home was very clean and well appointed in bath and kitchen. The family room area was very comfortable and the front porch was a favorite. The location was great with a short walk to everything one could want with restaurants and shopping. The harbor was only a few blocks walk and I was there often to people watch or walk along the shore. Next time I want to take my extended family to share the beauty of Bar Harbor.
I had never had the opportunity to visit Maine. A fall trip to Barharbor came highly recommended. We arrived at Moose Manor after a day's travel culminating in a beautiful flight on Cape air. The accommodations were fantastic! The house is warm and oh so comfortable!! The home is in walking distance of the town and all it offers. There are shuttles that transport you to Acadia National Park for hiking and sight seeing. Maine in the fall is stunning. I don't think there was a better place to stay than Moose Manor. The house location is perfect; the home has everything you need for your stay;and it is like staying in your own home. If you have a longing to go to Barharbor, Maine in the fall or at any time, I recommend staying at Moose Manor.
What a wonderful vacation we had! Moose Manor is a lovely appointed, comfortable and convenient home base to experience the beauty & diversity of Bar Harbor, Maine. The owners have thought of every detail to make the stay like home. The kitchen is fully equipped, the appliances first rate, the beds very comfortable and the bath towels lush & plentiful. The location couldn't be better --- walking distance to shops & restaurants. All in all, the perfect place to stay in Maine! Can't wait to go back!
Thank you to the owner of Moose Manor for the wonderful house which reflects the beautiful location of Maine. The house was very inviting and so much was included that I couldn't name it all. There is a fully stocked kitchen, comfortable furniture, great beds and lots of room in this century old home. The location to the activities of Bar Harbor and Acadia National Park couldn't have been better, everything was in walking distance or a free shuttle service would take us there.
Perfect week with our family! One thing though...the mail trucks are extremely loud for the people staying in the back bedroom. Otherwise, perfect!
