Property description

This house is great for family reunions. It is very private, located close to and between the town of Bar Harbor and Acadia National Park.

Situated above Frenchman Bay with over 12 acres of woodlands behind it, Sols Cliff House enjoys some of the most magnificent views on Mt. Desert Island. On its inland side, the house has views of Acadia National Park's mountains for which the island is so well known. It also includes a large dining room, a large living room, library, kitchen, butler's pantry and laundry room, six fireplaces (with the four on the ground floor available for use), a second floor porch overlooking the water, a long terrace along the water side of the house, two sheltered picnic areas in Italian style loggia and a large, detached game house.
