Rental of the Week: Nannau Woods in Bar Harbor, ME

NannauWoods.25Listed on the National Registry of Historic Places, beautiful Nannau Woods is sited on peaceful Compass Harbor and borders a section of Acadia National Park. This shingle-style cottage, built in 1904, but beautifully maintained, is at once peaceful, unpretentious, elegant and inviting. Nannau Woods enjoys five quiet, wooded acres just one mile from downtown Bar Harbor. It offers a combination of secluded shore frontage and forest, as well as terraced perennial and vegetable gardens. The interior is furnished with an emphasis on comfort and luxurious period decor. Fireplaces and a wood stove warm the living room, dining room and parlor on the first floor, while the two upper floors offer additional fireplaces and comfortable sleeping arrangements for several guests. Spend your days sitting on Nannau's rocky beach, feeling the water lap at your toes, or curl up in front of the huge fireplace in the living room with a book from the property's extensive library.

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.
