Rising Sun Cottage
Informal luxury comes to mind when describing the tasteful furnishings, custom details, and lovely decor throughout the home where an active family can truly relax in style. Like the rising sun, the walls, ceilings and floors of the entire house radiate light and color. With three floors and 5,400 sq. ft of comfortable living space, fifty-four oversized windows that bathe the rooms in natural light during all four seasons, you'll be amazed at the spectacular water views of the Gulf of Maine and sweeping past Egg Rock Lighthouse, Schoodic, Ironbound, the Thrumcap and Bald Porcupine Island from nearly every room.
For those looking for one of the most bold shorefront private settings along the rocky coast of Frenchman Bay, Rising Sun is surely the perfect vacation spot! Take a stroll along the panoramic path of beautiful trees and flower gardens to 330' of private shorefront that includes both a cobblestone beach and an large outcropping of massive rocks so synonymous with Maine's coastline.
Indoors, soothing colors and carefully designed recessed lighting delivers warm, controllable lighting offering the perfect atmosphere for whatever purpose or mood you desire. Two separate water-facing Decks provide the perfect opportunity for taking in gorgeous views, dining, entertaining, or just quiet time relaxing in the sun. Even in inclement weather, you'll enjoy the sounds of crashing waves, the flying spray and the melodic sounds of the sea. Located less than a mile from both Acadia National Park and Bar Harbor's village, you're sure to enjoy all this lovely home has to offer.

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.
