Rising Sun Cottage


Poised high above the bold shorefront of Bar Harbor's rocky shore, Rising Sun, so named for its eastern views to open ocean, enjoys a spectacular setting. Newly constructed, this amazing custom built home was thoughtfully designed to achieve seven aesthetic and life-style objectives, taking into consideration the affects of the rising sun over the ocean from every room in the house.
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.

FIRST FLOOR:  From the grand entrance hallway is a spacious central combined Living and Dining Room with plenty of comfy furnishings, a large dining table, plus oversized windows offering spectacular water views while relaxing, dining and entertaining. Amazing professional Kitchen designed to make cooking, baking and dining a memorable experience for both the expert and amateur cook! With all new stainless steel appliances, plenty of prep counters, shelving and a full array of equipment, you'll enjoy cooking even while on vacation. Off the Kitchen is a large Pantry with a food location index to find the perfect spice or flavoring in seconds. Just off the Living Room is a Master Bedroom with King bed, wonderful water views and private full Bath with large shower.  A Powder Room completes the first floor living space.

SECOND FLOOR:  From the grand entrance hallway find a winding staircase to the second floor and a bright and sunny Bedroom with three Twins (two twins can be converted to a King bed upon request), and a second Bedroom with Queen bed. Both offer water views and share a full Bathroom with tub and shower. Bedroom with Queen bed and a Master Bedroom with King bed share a lovely Sun Porch with cozy furnishings and wonderful views. The Master Bedroom has its own large private Bath with large soaking whirlpool tub perfect for sore muscles after a day of fun and hiking, plus a large separate shower with water views.
LOWER LEVEL: A finished lower lever offers lots of additional space with a centrally located spacious Entertainment Room with plenty of comfy seating, a large screened wall-mounted TV, and plenty of windows for more wonderful water views. You'll also find a shared full Bath with shower. On either side of the Entertainment Room, are two additional Bedrooms, each set up with a Queen bed. One Bedroom doubles as a Yoga room with Yoga wall, and the other as a small gym with free weights. All three rooms have outdoor excess. Plus a special dog room outfitted with a dog shower, dog beds, bowls and protective furniture blankets, as well as a 1,000 sq. ft. dog run. Well-mannered dogs are welcome with prior approval at no additional charge. A Laundry Room with large capacity washer/ dryer completes the lower level.

We encourage you to enjoy a stroll down to the cobblestone beach, but PLEASE beware of the inherent dangers of our dynamic Maine rocky coast!
