Property description

Home situated on 1 acre private lot. Entrance of drive has view of Cadillac Mountain. Cottage is not located in the middle of the chaotic activities but close enough so that you could be there very quickly. Very welcoming and comfortable. Whether you prefer to dine or lounge on the large wrap-around deck or pick blue berries in the field (in season) you will be very content. Large lawn for children to play or to throw a ball for your pet to retrieve. The flower gardens are beautiful and attract a large variety of birds. The cottage was built in 1983, this year has been completely renovated. The open floor plan invites family time and conversation. High speed, wireless internet is available for those who need to check in at work or inquire about local activities. 1 mile from the home is the welcome center where you can catch a free bus which goes all around the island.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1983

About the owner: We are a working class couple with our children grown and on their own.

Why the Owner Chose Bar Harbor:
We designed and built the house when we were first starting out. This is the only home my children knew until they went off to college. We still live in the house in the winter but live in a travel trailer on the pond during the summer. The house, garden and yard are just to enjoyable for it not to be used during our best months of the year! That's why we decided to rent.
