Overview

About the property

5 bedrooms/3 bathrooms, sleeps 10-12

The Libby House is a 2 story 2500 square foot family residence consisting of 5 bedrooms and 3 full bathrooms with generous grounds and off-street parking for 6-8 vehicles. Built in 1900, the house retains many original features including stucco walls, plaster ceilings, hard wood floors, wainscoting, antique lighting fixtures and claw foot tubs.

Spacious inside, and a large backyard outside—a true luxury for a downtown property. It's also just a few hundred yards away from the wonderful Shore Path, a two-mile walkway along the ocean in Bar Harbor.

The Libby House is situated on a private way off of center Main Street in the heart of downtown Bar Harbor. From our front door, you are truly a 4 minute walk from many of the most popular in-town attractions and activities including: the harbor, the Shore Path, the town beach, all three municipal parks, the Abbe Museum, the Bar Harbor Historical Society, the public library, dozens of restaurants, bars and shops, bike and kayak rentals, the YMCA, and several houses of worship. And with the main terminus of the Island Explorer, a complimentary shuttle serving Mount Desert Island, including Acadia National Park, right around the corner, you will not need to use your car for the duration of your stay. Despite its rare downtown proximity, the Libby House provides a secluded and private setting to enjoy your time in Bar Harbor.

GREAT SPOT FOR EXTENDED FAMILY VACATION!

  • 5 of 5

My husband, 3 adult children and their families with children 1 yr. old to 11 spent one week here and loved every minute. We went on a spectacular whale watch, went fishing, kayaking, paddle boarding, and hiking. Everyone agreed it could not have been better. Plus being able to come back to a comfortable home with a large yard for children to play in while adults watched with cocktails on the deck followed by dinner at a table big enough for all to exchange the daily happenings. It was wonderful. Thank you for the use of your home. The only suggestion I would make is maybe a few more towels (kitchen and bath) and garbage bags.
