Property description

This beautiful home is in a peaceful field and forest setting on the quiet side of the island. Sitting on the deck you can look at a field of meadow grass and wild flowers. Graced with tranquility, the couple that departed at the end of June told us how much they enjoyed watching the deer in the field while having their coffee every morning. At night, guests enjoy gazing at the Milky Way while listening to the soothing call of owls.

Located amidst Acadia National Park properties, there are endless recreational possibilities. Right from the house, a 15 minute walk puts you on some of the park's roads and trails, giving you access to nearby mountains and three different ponds. An ocean boat launch is only 2 miles away. Bass Harbor Lighthouse, (one of the most photographed in Maine), seafood restaurants, Bar Harbor, and the Swan's Island ferry are just a short drive. After a full day of activity, you can return for a relaxing whirlpool bath, enjoy a movie, or have a glass of wine on the deck. Fully equipped with everything you need to relax in comfort. It is a common sight to see deer, fox, and other wildlife right from the living room window or back deck while enjoying your morning coffee.

Our Guestbook: We are grateful for our guests that take the time and trouble to make an entry in our guest book both at the house and on line. We have completely filled one guest book and leave it at the house for you to read. In it, you will find many descriptions of what people enjoyed most while being our guests. You can use it to get helpful hints on everything from which restaurants were the best to which hikes had the most beautiful views and which ones they found difficult.

Come share a piece of Mount Desert Island. Acadia National Park is always one of the most visited parks in the country. The views are nothing short of spectacular. You will find tall pines seemingly growing out of rocks, mountains with granite cliffs, hiking trails, ponds, lakes and salt-water beaches, and ocean waves crashing in fantastic displays on our rock-bound coast. Lighthouses? You can see as many as five from Cadillac Mountain.

Take in historic Bar Harbor. You can eat a pizza while watching a movie or listen to live music in the village square. There are bike rentals, sightseeing boats, whale-watching cruises, kayaking and rock climbing excursions just to mention a few of the adventures awaiting you. Lobster pounds and seafood restaurants are everywhere just in case you are interested. Not interested? How about gliding in a plane with no engine or seeing a lumberjack show with Tina from 'Survivor', or looking through the old Chicken Barn full of antiques or....

Other Activities: golf, hiking, rock climbing, kayaking, canoing, boat rentals, berry picking
