Bar Harbor house description

Book this three-bedroom cottage on this spruce-covered spot in Frenchman Bay, well ahead of time. The master suite has spectacular sea views, a four-poster bed, and a whirlpool. The wood-burning fireplace in the living room is cozy on foggy nights, while the wraparound porch makes for good afternoon bird-watching, when gulls and osprey swoop along the shoreline.

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 five 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.
