Property description

Picture windows looking east, with views of Gorham Mountain and the meadow, make this home feel like it is in Acadia National Park, rather than merely surrounded by it.

In the afternoon, relax on your private back deck, watching songbirds and meadow wildlife. Or sit by the frog pond enjoying a good book and the clear Maine air. There's a large back yard, a hammock for lazy days and moonlit nights and when you're ready to hit the hiking, biking, kayaking, canoeing or garden trails we'll point you to the local favorites.

Acadia Meadow is stocked with fresh herbs and vegetables (in season) from our organic garden, books, including Maine authors, local guides and great area maps: we think, like the 'rusticators' of times past, you'll want to return to Acadia Meadow year after year.

Location

Acadia National Park and Bar Harbor offer all the activities you can imagine! Hike or bike into the park, catch the free Island Explorer bus outside your front door or drive and explore Downeast Coastal Maine. Tod and I will point you to the local favorites.

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1992

About the owner: About the owner: I was born and raised in Bar Harbor and Tod grew up in Marin County, California. We owned and operated Bar Harbor Brewing Company and retired after selling the business in 2008. We love to garden, hike, bike, fish, gather wild mushrooms and berries and play tennis. I love to cook; creating dinner menus from the organic vegetables in Tod's garden is a highlight of each summer day. This summer Tod will focus on his vegetable garden and hopefully finish the backyard Bocce Court! I work as ambulance driver for the town of Mt. Desert, and hope to pass my EMT certification exam in May. I also help two good friends with their vacation rentals, and serve as a local guide for Oli's Trolley Tour Company.

Why the Owner Chose Bar Harbor:
We fell in love with the house and 2+ acre property. You can hike out your back door into Acadia National Park. The backyard opens out to a beautiful meadow teeming with wildlife. And yet we're 4 miles from downtown Bar Harbor.

The Unique Benefits at this Townhome:
Stars, stars and more stars at night. The night sky from the back yard Adirondack chairs or hammock is the greatest show on earth. Wildlife, including deer, Pileated Woodpeckers, fireflies & hummingbirds can usually be seen regularly while relaxing on your back deck. Location is surrounded by the most wonderful places to explore in Acadia National Park - if you forget something, or want to come home for lunch, we're just around the corner. Free Island Explorer Bus stops outside your front door June 23 to Columbus Day 2015. Acadia Meadow is the entire left wing of the house.
