Bagatelle

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.
