If you desire Maine coastal living at its finest, you won’t do much better than Bear Creek, a classic Shingle-style home with a contemporary twist, boldly perched on the granite shores of Frenchman Bay and the Atlantic Ocean.
When entering the nearly 16-acre property along the long and winding driveway, through a forest of old and new growth trees and abundant mosses and lichens, guests are delivered from the hustle and bustle of the village of Bar Harbor, only minutes away, to a tranquil retreat with spectacular 180-degree views of Egg Rock Light, Thrumcap Island, Schoodic Peninsula and the open ocean. Enjoy the rising sun, passing lobster boats or cruising yachts, or the simple sound of crashing surf against the rocky bluff below from this spectacular offering!

About the Area
Bar Harbor is likely the best-known town on Mount Desert Island, 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 art 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 world-renowned Jackson Laboratory, College of the Atlantic, The Criterion Theatre, historic “cottages” built along the rugged shores, the Shore Path, Balance Rock, and two charming village parks. Bar Harbor has everything a year-round or seasonal visitor could expect to find yet retains that small-town appeal.
