Property Description:

This lovely second floor apartment offers a bit of privacy with its wooded setting in the quiet Frenchman's Hill area of Town Hill with access by car to all that Mt. Desert Island has to offer. The village centers of Bar Harbor, Northeast Harbor and Southwest Harbor are each only 10 minutes away and along the way, you'll drive by a variety of trailheads or other access points for getting into Acadia National Park. But if you prefer to stay close to home for the day, you might enjoy taking the woodland trail to Frenchman's Hill Pond and picnic area or settling in on the sunny deck above your own private lawn. Any children in your group will surely enjoy the playground below or perhaps they'll ask to visit the local playground nearby with a stop for ice cream or shaved ice, both available in the sweet little village of Town Hill.

SECOND FLOOR: The Nest is a garage apartment featuring an open floor plan with renovated interiors. Designed for the ease of conversation and cooking in mind, the eat-in Kitchen overlooks the sunlit Living Area with cathedral ceilings and plenty of windows. Exit to a sunny Deck overlooking a private yard with playground. A Bedroom with Queen bed and one with a set of Twins shares a full Bathroom with combined tub and shower. For an additional fee, an air mattress can be made available for a 5th person.

OUTDOOR SPACES: Split-level Deck with gas grill and furnishings overlooks a private yard and playground surrounded by lovely woods.

NOTE: No cable or satellite service runs to this property, but the smart TV offers internet programming.

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.

Lovely quiet place, close to town and the park-- but not too close! We loved staying here, it was absolutely perfect for our family. We were pretty nervous about taking a vacation with twin toddlers-- and what that would mean as far as needing to child-proof where we would stay. We were delighted to find that we didn't need to do too much at all. Everything was sparkling clean and well appointed.

Family Vacation

This place is a hikers delight! Loved the comfortable and spacious feel of the place. Was so well stocked with all you could need in the kitchen! A great selection of cookbooks, magazines and games were appreciated. We also loved the handmade ceramics and sculpture adorning the nest. It was the perfect place to come home relax and cook to after a day of hiking in Acadia. Will definitely be coming back.

We stayed for a week in this property and it was wonderful. The house is beautiful and everything there is clean and of great quality. The kitchen is large and the living room has plenty of space. All appliances work and are in good shape. We want to come back.

The cabin is a perfect spot from which to enjoy the beauties of Acadia. Bar Harbor and Mt Desert Island. It is a well equipped and comfortable cabin. It is ideal for two people and comfortable for four. We did not want to leave.

Beautiful, clean, comfortable, relaxing house in a quiet, private, and very convenient location. Extraordinarily well equipped kitchen, comfortable furniture and beds, and we especially enjoyed coffee, drinks, and snacks on the lovely deck, which feels like a tree house. Also--this house allows dogs, which is a huge plus.
