Property description

We live in a charming 19th century farm house on the coast of Maine. We have a view of the water from the front of the house where you can see lobster boats motoring by. Our back yard is rich with apple trees, blueberry bushes, and blackberry brambles. In the house there are three bedrooms, including a fully renovated master bedroom, a full bathroom upstairs with a great claw-foot tub, a fully renovated downstairs bathroom which includes a very large, mosaic tiled shower with two shower heads and a door leading to a fieldstone and cedar outdoor shower, a beautifully renovated kitchen including a built in breakfast booth, and cozy sitting area, all stainless steel appliances and three full walls of windows looking out to the water, side yard and back yard and patio, dining room, two living rooms-one facing the water side of the house, and one facing the backyard, and a gorgeous fieldstone patio with outdoor grilling dining and a cozy bistro nook.

**CHECK IN AND CHECK OUT TIMES: In order that we may get the property ready for your arrival, and make sure we had adequate time to clean the property after your departure, we must insist that check in time be NO EARLIER THAN 4PM and check out is no later than 10 AM

  • Children Welcome:

    please note that we do have the lawns treated for red ants and other pests.

You will find this problem everywhere on the island so use caution....moreless

  • This is an old and funky house (built 1856) and as such it has some quirks. One quirk is that guests in the yellow room have to pass through the master to access the upstairs bathroom. However, access to downstairs bathroom does not require passing through another bedroom. Master bedroom is very large and can sleep a family of four (two in queen bed and two in twin trundle). There is also a port-a-crib in the closet and probably enough left over room for an inflatable mattress. It is the biggest bedroom in the house. The laundry area is in the master bedroom as well. Both the master and the guest bedroom have access to the upstairs bathroom without passing through another bedroom. WE NO LONGER HAVE A YURT ON OUR PROPERTY....moreless

Other Amenities

  • There are wonderful places very nearby to put in your Kayak or have a cookout on the shore, but we ask that you respect the wishes of our neighbors and NOT access the water directly across the street. There IS a washer/dryer in the house. There is a television with a DVD player but no cable and no channels....moreless

Bar Harbor Maine is located on Mount Desert Island which is the home to Acadia National Park. This is one of the most beautiful and popular spots in the whole country. People visit Bar Harbor from all over the world and though the village can be quite crowded in the month of August, our house is located 5 miles down the road and feels quite serene even in the busiest months. For further information on the Park, the Internet has lots of information. Activities in and around the park include hiking, biking, swimming, sailing and kayaking, **Whale Watching** (lots of whales in the summer) , rock climbing, canoeing, bird watching and lots more!
