Rental of the Week: Acadia Tranquility in Bar Harbor, Maine

This beautiful, custom-built home is situated in a very quiet neighborhood just steps away from Acadia National Park's entrance, carriage paths and a world-renowned golf course. It is a 5-minute bike ride to the ocean and shops and restaurants located in downtown Bar Harbor, but if you prefer the Island Explorer free bus service stops within feet from the house for ease of travel. The tranquil stream that runs through the property adds to the already spacious outdoor area, making this home the perfect getaway. The majority of the home is air conditioned. It features mountain views and a tranquil stream within 10 feet of the sun-room and the rear deck. A large lot with off-street parking and a garage for temporary storage of your recreational items.

About the Area

Bar Harbor is likely the best-known town on Mount Desert Island (MDI) as it is a popular vacation destination for visitors to Acadia National Park. Originally known as Eden, Bar Harbor boasts a vibrant year-round community with many shops, restaurants, and galleries. It is a busy seasonal port-of-call to many national and international cruise lines and is the main hub for the Island Explorer bus — a free service provided in the summer months by LL Bean — that shuttles visitors all over the island and beyond. Starting from Bar Harbor one can tour MDI by boat, kayak, bus, or trolley. Steeped in history, the village is home to The Jackson Laboratory, world renown for genetics research, and College of the Atlantic as well as many notable points of interest such as the 1932 Criterion Theatre, historic “cottages” built along the rugged shores, the Shore Path and Balance Rock, as well as two charming village parks. Bar Harbor has everything a year-round or seasonal visitor could expect to find yet retains that small-town appeal.
