Hulls Cove house description

Acadia View is located on a quiet dead end convenient both to the shops and restaurants of downtown Bar Harbor and to the beauty of Acadia National Park--only about 1/2 mile to either. There is a free shuttle in both directions--and shuttles carry bikes or strollers.. The layout is modern, with a breakfast island between kitchen and den, full kitchen with dishwasher, wireless internet connection, cable TV, DVD player, and full laundry. Outside there is a sun deck and a large lawn with gas grill. We furnish linens (beds made), towels, dishes, pans, detergents, and paper products--just about everything except toothbrushes!
Dining, Shopping, Boating: : Approximately 70 restaurants, mostly casual. Most have lobster, and most serve liquor. Good value by city standards. Friendly shops and outstanding craft and art galleries. Many forms of ocean boating, including: slow sunset sails, whale watches, guided sea kayaking, novel trips on lobster boat or video-dive boat, private charters.
Recreation & Nature: : Hike, bike, kayak, canoe, climb. Photograph on guided nature tours in Acadia National Park. Oceanarium, zoo, mini-golf & full golfing, horse wagons & horseback. Make day trips to quaint villages in Maine. Century-old reputation as 'America's Most Beautiful Island' and 'Queen of Resorts.'
Certified for Occupancy: Starting in 2007 all weekly rental properties must be Certified for Occupancy by town officials. Our property is duly certified. As you shop among properties, ask whether they are currently certified--to avoid a cancellation at the last minute. If you have to cancel, we immediately put your week back on the market and refund your outlay after someone else rents. Thankfully, cancellations are rare.

              $995/week Low season (Jun 13- Jun 26 and Aug 22-Sept 4)

              $1295/week High season (June 27-Aug 21)

              For multi-week stays, we offer a discount of $100/week after the first week.

              Deposit of 50% when reservation is made. Balance due 30 days before arrival. Reason: we have several households changing over at the same hour on the same day and cannot meet most of the folks as they arrive. With the fee paid in advance, the cleaners simply leave your door unlocked and the key on the dining table. That way there is no 'key chase'--it's that kind of safe, old-fashioned town!

              Owner info

              Year Purchased: 2000

              About the owner: On a one-week vacation to Bar Harbor in 1976, I fell in love with the Town and National Park. I signed a lease on a small shop--and never returned to Boston. A frequent fantasy of visitors; I was lucky enuf to make it work. For 25 years I owned Boston Baked Beads, The Dancing Deer &The Blue Heron Shop. I've served the Town on the Appeals Board & the restoration of the historic Hulls Cove Schoolhouse. I grew up living sweetly in small towns, but none was as beautiful as this one.

              Why the Owner Chose Hulls Cove:
              Acadia View offers a perfect location. Tucked into a low-traffic deadend behind a hill away from the bustle of the downtown, it still remains within walking or shuttle distance of all the fine shops and restaurants. And if you head the other direction by bike, auto, or free shuttle--it is only 1/2 mile into one of the most beautiful of our National Parks. You can't get much closer! I didn't build Acadia View, but I did recognize it as a gem--and bought it.

              The Unique Benefits at this House:
              Acadia View offers in abundance the features that add up to a great vacation: a strategic location, a quiet neighborhood, large lawn with gas grill, and clean comfy quarters. Not fancy nor fragile, just a sensible setting from which you can easily explore the Town, the Park and the Island. And a neighborly place to return to for cooking, sunning, catching up by WiFi or TV--and quiet sleeping.
