Property Description:

Located in the Eden Street Historic District of Bar Harbor and listed on the National Register of Historic Places, this French-style home with 136 feet of private shorefront and ever-changing views of Frenchman's Bay, Bar Harbor, and the Porcupine Islands, offers its guests timeless romance in a private oceanfront setting. And it's all within walking or biking distance to Acadia National Park and the village of Bar Harbor! Bagatelle was designed and built in 1887 by famed architect, Arthur Rotch, who designed twenty Bar Harbor "cottages" between 1883 and 1890. Today, it's one of only seven Arthur Rotch cottages that survived the great fire of 1947. Lovingly restored by expert craftsmen, rich interiors express the well-measured exuberance of Victorian residential architecture. With lavish moldings, fine wainscoting, and elaborate hand-carved mantels, the period's desire for invention and variety are evident.

About this area:

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.

Perfect!

After missing our annual bike trip with friends last year, and moving to Maine on top of that, we were thrilled to have been able to get together early this month for a week of cycling, hiking, yoga on the lawn, kayaking, eating, and drinking around the fire pit. We had room for everyone and big meals together, we even learned how to steam lobster, everything we needed was at the house. The house is unique and beautiful, like some place out of an Edith Wharton novel. Sunrise views and listening to the lapping water, walking the bar at low tide, and quick walks to town for groceries, ice cream, and the ferry to Schoodic. One big plus is that the house is half a block from the new bike route into the park which is direct and safe. We rode all the Carriage roads and climbed to South Bubble. It was perfect and worth the trip our friends made out from Oregon.

I came up with a group of girlfriends for a week of hiking and biking. The house was perfect! The best location, easy to walk to town and close to the park and the park loop. The days and evenings sitting on the porch overlooking the water--we didn't want to leave. The house was very clean and well stocked. We plan to come again.

Bagatelle was perfect for a large family vacation. Our favorite time was sitting on the wide porch overlooking Frenchman Bay. It's hard to decide if the morning or evening view is more spectacular. Staying in this historic home with the impressive Acadia National Park in its backyard, with Bar Harbor just a short walk away, made for a very memorable vacation. July 2020.

My family rented Bagatelle for my mother's 70th birthday. It was perfect beyond words. Waking up every morning to that beautiful view on the water and drinking coffee on the porch was my favorite part. The house is charming and historic and never felt crowded even though we had 11 people. We were able to walk to Bar Harbor and ride our bikes to Acadia. Thank you for a great week!
