Property Description:

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. Entering the almost 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 companionship of crashing surf against the rocky bluff below from this spectacular offering!

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.


We had an amazing week


Bear Creek is perfectly appointed - with breath taking views and trails down to the ocean and a very short drive to the town and park. There is a ton to do on the property - quiet and beautiful.

This is a MAGICAL place. What an incredible setting for enjoying all that Mount Desert Island has to offer. From the incredible stargazing at night, and beautiful sunrises in the morning, to warming up in front of a fire on a rainy day, every moment we spent here has felt like a small bit of paradise.
