Bernard house description

Located in the small fishing village of Bernard on Mt. Desert Island, Maine. The house overlooks Bass Harbor and the comings and goings of the Swans Island ferry, It is within walking distance of fishing wharfs, antique stores, art galleries, the post office, the library and a bus stop for the Island Explorer, a free transportation system for the entire island. Thurston's Lobster wharf is just down the hill, and it's a short walk to Back Beach, a wonderful coastal shoreline for walking, exploring, and viewing the passing boat traffic. The house is 10 minutes from the Ships Harbor nature walk in Acadia National Park, minutes from Southwest Harbor on the Quiet side of Mt. Desert, and 30 minutes from Bar Harbor. Enjoy biking, hiking, kayaking, and the Down East culture of the quiet coastal village of Bernard.
Potential renters note that improvements to the house has taken place this winter. Photo's will be added by mid spring. To much snow to take pictures.
