Owner info

Why the Owner Chose Bar Harbor:
We have visited this area of Maine since 1986. We traveled throughout the United States, and found no place more alluring than the coastal area of Maine with its crown jewel Acadia National Park. This home spoke to us with its setting on the water, views of mountains, and cradle of forest green. The home itself has wonderful waterviews especially in the panoramic dining area. We love the loft which has a futon and a skylight which allows for great stargazing at night. The yard is fun for outdoor games. Cross our charming little bridge to the blueberry fields and the water beyond. Kayak and explore the boulder beach and its tidal pools. Have a campfire by the water. We love it all.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Kayaking on the water, lovely setting, wonderful location for daytrips, shopping, and stargazing!
