Relax in this exquisite home for a wonderful time in Acadia. This 3 story late Victorian home is attractive cedar with colorful gingerbread dormers. A classic foyer and staircase leads up to a well-appointed, completely renovated 2 story abode. With so many homes in Bar Harbor now converted to B&Bs, here is your chance to step back in time and enjoy a 19th century residence as it once was when the town's doctor, Royal G. Higgins lived here with his family. Just down the street is the astonishing Bar Harbor Club on Frenchman's Bay, built by J.P. Morgan in 1930 and still open to visitors.
