Many of the common rooms have access to the large blue stone terrace overlooking the water and lovely grounds. A lush lawn with colorful perennial gardens gently slopes to the ocean's edge, with a gravel beach at lower tides. Greenlawn enjoys a wonderful in-town location and is just seconds from restaurants, shops, Acadia National Park and all Bar Harbor amenities. Equipped with high-speed internet, Greenlawn is the perfect summer or year-round home.The extensive renovation included bringing the interior spaces down to the studs, structural improvements, a new roof, heating system and air conditioning and all new Marvin windows replicating the window design of the original cottage.
