Property description

A century old, this colonial is spacious and comfortable. In 2002, it was totally rewired, repainted and newly furnished. In 2012 we replaced the flooring in the kitchen and shower room and installed a new shower. In 2013, we added a dishwasher to make life easer. The shaded yard is a pleasant place to barbeque and relax around the picnic table. Located 3 miles from downtown Bar Harbor and just a mile from the entrance to Acadia National Park. There is a path that leads to a circular road through the woods with ocean views--great for strolling, jogging. Plenty of parking in front of the barn.
On the first floor there is a full kitchen with a small island & stools for breakfasting, a full dining room, living room with cable TV & DVD player, full bathroom, bedroom with queen bed, & an additional shower room. Upstairs there is a half bath, master bedroom with king size bed, & a third bedroom with two twin beds. We provide dishes & flatware, pans & utensils, sheets, blankets & towels. There is a washer & dryer in the basement.
Recreation & Nature: : Climb, swim, kayak, canoe, bike, hike. Photograph on guided nature tours in Acadia National Park. Oceanarium, mini golf, full golf, zoo. Take day trips to quaint villages in Maine or overnight to Canada. Century-old reputation as 'America's Most Beautiful Island' and 'Queen of Resorts'.
Dining, Shopping, Boating: : Approximately 100 restaurants and shops within 5 miles. Most restaurants offer lobster. Good value by city standards. Friendly shops and outstanding craft and art galleries. Many forms of ocean boating: slow sunset sails, whale watches, guided sea kayaking, trips on lobster boats or video-dive boat, private charters.
Important: Certificate of Occupancy.: Starting in 2007, Bar Harbor requires town certification of summer rental properties. Our property is certified. As you shop among properties, be certain to ask about the property's certification--to avoid a cancellation at the last minute. If you have to cancel, we immediately put your week back on the market and refund your outlay after someone else rents. There is no automatic penalty, but with a late cancellation there is a chance that no one will be found to replace your family. Thankfully, cancellations are rare.

Additional information about rental rates

Fees:

  • Tax Rate 8%

Notes:

$995/1295 week

$995/week Low season (Jun 13- Jun 26 and Aug 22-Sept 4)

$1295/week High season (June 27-Aug 21)

For multi-week stays, we offer a discount of $100/week after the first week.

Deposit of 50% when reservation is made. Balance due 30 days before arrival. Reason: we have several households changing over at the same hour on the same day and cannot meet most of the folks as they arrive. With the fee paid in advance, the cleaners simply leave your door unlocked and the key on the dining table. That way there is no 'key chase'--it's that kind of safe, old-fashioned town!

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2001

About the owner: On a one-week vacation to Bar Harbor in 1976, We fell in love with the Town and National Park. We signed a lease on a small shop--and never returned to Boston. A frequent fantasy of visitors;We were lucky enuf to make it work. For 25 years We owned Boston Baked Beads, The Dancing Deer &The Blue Heron Shop. We grew up living sweetly in small towns, but none was as beautiful as this one.

Why the Owner Chose Hulls Cove:
This was one of the first houses built in the village of Hulls Cove in the Township of Bar Harbor--the first cove out from the downtown. Tho it has now been thoroughly updated, the sturdy and angular old two-story farmhouse offers a charm not readily found in the modular houses of recent decades. The driveway circles around an ancient maple tree. And a pathway behind the barn leads to a private wooded roal perfect for strolling or jogging.
