Property Description:

This wonderful and spacious home, once part of the Kenarden estate built by J. S. Kennedy in the late 1800s was purchased decades later in 1929 by the founder of The Jackson Laboratory. Today, summer visitors to this historic home will enjoy beautiful renovations that made it the first-ever designer showhouse for Maine Home and Design magazine. With its classic white picket fence, front covered porch, and brick pavers at the street and entryway, you'll feel the welcoming effects of this lovely home. With nice amenities and spacious interiors, Brightholme invites you to come inside and settle in for a lovely vacation with family and friends. Enjoy your morning coffee on the beautiful front covered porch or venture out early to stroll Bar Harbor's famous Shore Path with gorgeous views of the Harbor and Porcupine Islands. Walk the entire length of the Shore Path or take a shortcut through the neighborhoods to reach Bar Harbor's shops, restaurants, attractions, and nearby parks and playgrounds. Acadia National Park entrances are also just minutes away. Venture a short distance to the "Village Green" in the center of town to catch the free Island Explorer shuttle or down to the Harbor where you'll find various excursions to choose from. Easy access to National Park attractions and Village amenities makes Brightholme the perfect cottage from which to enjoy all that Mt. Desert Island has to offer!

Ratings and Reviews

Family Vacation
by Joelyn N. on Jul 05, 2018

We absolutely loved this home!!! It had everything we needed and so much space for everyone to spread out plus we loved being able to walk to everything. Would stay here again for sure.

Amazing, beautiful house & great booking experience.


Reunion/Vacation
by Karen W. on Jul 07, 2017

There were four adult couples and we all enjoyed the Brightholm. It is very spacious inside and out. It has an up to date kitchen with good appliances and the rooms are very tastefully decorated. The front porch is a fun meeting place. The location is perfect. You are a few blocks from Main street with shopping and eateries and a short distance from the Shore Path.


family vacation
by Sheri T. on Aug 03, 2016

The weather was amazing. We were abel to really enjoy all that Bar Harbor and Acadia have to offer. Location worked for everyone - close to town, the park, and the water! We loved the house - especially the front porch and the big dining room.


Bar Harbor's village and surrounding rural residential areas are a popular destination for visitors to Acadia National Park. The town center offers diverse shops, restaurants and activities. Acadia National Park's Hulls Cove entrance, as well as other major entrances, are located just outside the village center. Not all properties listed as 'Bar Harbor' are actually in the village of Bar Harbor, since the town of Bar Harbor encompasses the northern half of Mt. Desert Island, most of which is quite rural in nature. However, homes within this area are usually between five and fifteen minutes' drive to the village center.
