Bar Harbor house description

This cottage, with living space on the second floor for the view, is perfect for two couples, with two very private bedrooms, each with it's own bath. Great for families as well. Cook's kitchen with all appliances, pantry and stunning view to the ocean. Eat at the bar or the dining table. Cozy living room with gorgeous window seat. Laundry, third bath and den downstairs. Deck across the front for outdoor living with view of Frenchman's Bay and the mountains of Mount Desert Island. Stroll down through the orchard to sit on the beach, watch the shore birds and boats go by, maybe even go for a dip if you're brave. Just 20 minutes to Acadia National Park and 25 min. to downtown Bar Harbor or 10 minutes to shopping in Ellsworth.

              Other Amenities

                  • Our house is well supplied with movies, games and books for at home leisure hours. There are lots of woods for walking and of coarse the beach to comb. The property was once a farm so there's an old apple orchard that attracts the deer at times. The field is big enough and at times the westerly winds are just right for kite flying. We know, we've done it! We'll leave our kite in the garage. Those same breezes will keep you cool on hot afternoons as well as discourage the mosquitoes. We've made a fun 'Pinecone Path' for the young at heart to explore, and have cute little castles tucked in the trees to play in....moreless
