Property description

The Maine Chalet is a family-owned and operated oceanfront vacation rental 8 miles NW of downtown Bar Harbor on Mount Desert Island in the great state of Maine. It is a quiet and secluded house right on the water perfect for couples or small families who want to vacation in Bar Harbor, but stay just far enough away from the craziness of town. Acadia National Park is spread all over the island -- the nearest entrance to our home is about 4 miles away. The far side of the island is about 15 miles away (Southwest Harbor).

We've been innkeepers for most of our lives, though we've recently sold our inn -- hospitality is in our blood! If you're looking for a getaway -- this is a great choice! The house has 1 bedroom with a Queen bed and 1 loft bedroom with two double beds in it. The house has a fully-equipped kitchen, a gas grill and comes with a full set of linens. We're dog friendly, too (although you should check with us if you have more than one dog). Come and enjoy Bar Harbor!

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1980

About the owner: I've lived in Bar Harbor since 1971 and until 2008 I owned an inn (my daughter and her partner ran it for a number of years) as well as this vacation rental. I also own and run Bar Harbor Auto Repair in town so if you have car troubles while you're on vacation, you can come see me. In the picture is my current wife, Gail. You might talk to either of us when you make a reservation. Please let us know how we can make your stay in Bar Harbor (and hopefully in our house) the best vacation you've ever had.

Why the Owner Chose Bar Harbor:
First, I built the house myself. I chose this property because it was a prime piece of oceanfront land just far enough outside of Bar Harbor to be secluded and tranquil when town is a madhouse, but still close enough to everything we want to do. For years we used it as a personal getaway or hosted friends and family when they visited. We've rented it weekly for over ten years now. We still think of it as our home and not as a vacation rental -- we love it and take good care of it!

The Unique Benefits at this House:
First, we've been in the Bar Harbor hospitality business since 1971 -- we know the town and can help make your vacation awesome! Second, you're in a quiet location 100 ft. from the water (if you're looking at a map, find Hadley point just north of Route 3 as you drive from the head of the island to Bar Harbor -- that' where we are!). Third, this area of the island is a great launching point for getting into Acadia National Park. Fourth, the home is simple and affordable -- great for couples or small families.
