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.


Perfect place in Acadia


This architecturally designed cottage is spotless, has comfortable beds, and has a fully equipped kitchen with propane grill outside on patio. It is in a beautiful setting close to Gorham Mountain, Sand Beach, Shore Trail, and Great Head. If you understand maps, you can also find ways around traffic in the Park. Bar Harbor is within 3 miles, so it is quite easy to pick up groceries. This is the perfect place for one or two couples or a small family. The grounds are well designed. The cottage is designed with perfect views of the gardens. You will get a quiet night’s sleep here. Wildlife sitings included wild turkey and deer. We have rented cottages in several areas of Acadia over the decades, but this was our favorite. It cut down on driving and allowed us more time to hike. We give The Phoenix an A.
