Bar Harbor house description

This property is a one of a kind. An island that has only you and your private Captain and host. There is no one else on the six and-a-half-acre island. If you want privacy this is the place to stay in Maine, and your private captain makes Bar Harbor and Acadia National Park only 10 minutes away by boat. For more pictures please visit our website listed below.

With the newly finished Post and Beam home, summer of 2006, you live in luxury. The home is completely unattached from the mainland, with satellite TV, Reverse Osmosis for fresh water and a generator and solar for power you are living on your own. The home is furnished with antiques to create a open cottage feeling.

With a wrap-around covered porch and ocean views for 360 degrees, you are placed in a location where you feel as if you are the only one for hundreds of miles. .

Of course, that is, if you actually want to leave and head into the mainland. With the crew available to cater to your requests and provision the home with foods and drinks that you like what could possibly get in the way of total relaxation.

                                While we were only able to stay a few days this year, we couldn’t imagine not visiting. As usual, we had a great time. The kids will be sorry to have missed the new, expanded waffle ball field! All our best for an absolutely fabulous wedding! What a great couple you are!

                                We loved the opportunity to share you island. It seems to be a real paradise. You two are such gracious hosts and really appreciate having the whole big group for the old dads 80th.

                                I have enjoyed every aspect of the island life you have created here, most especially the warm and welcoming people you are. The house, island, dogs, and of course Ava add to the experience. It has been a wonderful week of family connecting in the perfect spot. Thank you so much for sharing your spot with us!

                                Well 5 years on spectacle and it always delivers! Perfect weather this week thanks for ordering that up for us! Most of all thank you for sharing this beautiful island with us. It has become a second home and we have truly enjoyed becoming friends with you all. Five years ago you were a cute couple, then engaged, married, now cute ava is on the scene. What a treat for us to be a part of it all! Love the beach walks every day, kayaking to the seals, dinner via the "dream" and the good ol' competitive games on island with sound effects and all. Always have to seal the deal with the annual weenie roast. we adore you guys and hope to see you down our way in the near future- door is always open! ps- love the painting! it will find a place of honor upon our return home- such a fantastic, thoughtfull gift!

                                Dear AJ, Jaime, and Longmaid Family Even though this week went by way too fast, I still had lots of laughs playing ladder golf with the red baron, and legs,and having my intense stare offs with little Ava. As this being my 5th consecutive year at Spectacle Island not much has changed and it does not feel like it has been 5 years. Thank you so much for always making Spectacle the highlight of my summer and enjoy the rest of your summer.

This year was by far the best because we all came together like one big happy family! Your humor always makes me laugh along with cutter and myah's adventurous personalities. I'm positive the upcoming year will blow by so we can come back for year 6!!

                                Thank you very, very much for another wonderful year here on island. As the biggest fan of quiet time in the family, I'm happy to report that-again- I'm fully relaxed and ready to re enter the hussle and bussel back down south. I give you both the credit for creating such a special and welcoming spot for our family to relax and create wonderful memories together. Please enjoy the rest of your summer and we hope to see you soon.

                                Dear new friends, With gratitude in our hearts for providing the perfect place for our honeymoon, we thank you for sharing your beautiful island. Perfect in every way...the solitude, the dramatic views, the various weather fronts, the boats tours, the lobsters, the champagne, the sharing of mynah, cutter, and sweet Ava.... All a perfect week in our lives.
