Property Description:

Step back into the true Golden Era of Bar Harbor in this beautifully situated, historic estate that will serve as the perfect backdrop to your gathering. Whether hosting a crowd of twelve or a smaller group, you will soon discover why Redwood is the perfect spot for your summer stay. Walk into Bar Harbor's vibrant village, or escape the crowds from the privacy and comfort of your waterfront lawn. Discover Acadia's trails and major entrances just around the corner, or explore the accessible shorefront right at your feet. Bar Harbor's popular Shore Path, a public walking path, is just a few steps to the north, but don't worry - the public pathway doesn't cross this property, so your privacy is protected!

Coming in 2024 - a 7th bedroom with bunkbeds to sleep a total of 14!

FIRST FLOOR: Enter the large front hall with beautifully restored original wood floors and architectural details throughout. To the right, a spacious living room offers seating for conversation or watching a movie on the flat screen Internet TV. Escape to one corner for puzzles or cards on a rainy day. Step through the French doors to the screened sunporch, which offers a wonderfully casual space for hanging out. Doors from the sunporch lead to the water side yard. Steps up from the sun porch lead to an elevated, sun drenched Sitting Area with magnificent views out to Bar Harbor's entrance and breakwater with Bald Porcupine Island beyond. Step down from the Sitting Area back to the front hall, where to the right of the front door is a small Study (not pictured) and Half Bath (not pictured). A formal Dining Room easily seats 12 around a fully expanded dining room table and also features water views. Just beyond is a functional, but - sorry - slightly dated Kitchen with table that seats six. Just beyond the Kitchen is one of our favorite Mud Rooms ever, perfect for storing hiking boots, jackets, and sporting gear. Laundry facilities, a second refrigerator, wine refrigerator, and Full Bath with shower stall can also be found here, as well as a back staircase to the second floor.

SECOND FLOOR: From the front hall, stairs lead to the second floor. At the southern end of the house, the Primary Bedroom includes a King Bed and sweet work area overlooking the water. Bedroom 2 features a unique stained glass architectural window, Double Bed, and water views. Bedroom 3 offers Twin Beds and a semi-private Full Bath with combined tub and shower, also accessible by the hall and shared with the Primary Bedroom and Bedroom 2. Just a bit further down the hall is Bedroom 4 with Queen Bed and water views. Bedroom 5 features a Double Bed, and two short steps down from the central hallway is Bedroom 6 with Twin Beds. These last three bedrooms share a Full Bath with combined tub and shower (not pictured, but consistent with the bath that is pictured here). A back staircase leads to the Kitchen area. Note that there is a stunning period full bath with metal tub and high tank pull toilet, but, alas, there is no water to this facility. What to do with such a historic treasure? We're not sure, except that it deserves our appreciation! But please don't try to use the commode. It would lead to disastrous results.

OUTDOOR SPACES: Sweeping lawns, delightfully sylvan wooded spaces, private low tide rocky beach, and enough space for lots of play, relaxation, and hanging out around the fire pit. A little whiffle ball game, corn hole, outdoor meals, watching the boating traffic coming and going, star gazing, or s'mores over the fire are all possible from these spacious grounds.

EXTRAS: EV charger for Tesla vehicles available for Tenant use.

PLEASE NOTE: Fireplaces are not operable in this home and are for decorative purposes only.

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.


Historic Redwood

Our stay at Redwood was wonderful! Redwood is a lovely old home well representing a bygone era. The grounds are beautiful and the views are magnificent! The house lives very comfortably and the tempur-pedic mattress in the Master bedroom was a real treat. The staff at The Knowles Company are wonderful to work with and are very professional. We are looking forward to our next stay at Redwood in 2023!
