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.


Tranquility now

I have the pleasure of staying at this property in the Fall and Summer seasons. The home is an architectural marvel set on the waterfront of a beautiful section of Frenchman Bay. The house is clean and airy. It has a large kitchen and seating area. Filled with tasteful decor and an extensive collection of books. We especially enjoyed the floating dock. Experience the beauty of the rugged Maine coast in comfort and style!

Incredible Property

I have been renting vacation homes on the island for close to thirty years. This property is beyond amazing. The setting is quintessential Maine. There are walking paths through the forested grounds, a gravel beach and a float at the end of dock. The home itself is full of natural light, beautifully decorated and maintained. Sitting on the Adirondack chairs on the back deck with the view of Frenchman's Bay is a delight. I highly recommend this property for the finest vacation experience possible.
