Mount Desert house description

Embrace nature in a home with large windows and sun room overlooking very private treed lot. Conveniently located next to Acadia National Park, on Otter Creek Drive (Route 3), the house is only five miles to downtown Bar Harbor for dining, shopping, catching a whale watch or nature cruise, or cooling off with some blueberry ice cream. Within the park, serene Otter Cove or 110-foot high Otter Cliff are minutes away. Access the scenic Park Loop Road at the Sieur de Monts Spring, just two miles away. Flag down the Island Explorer bus at the end of the driveway and head into Bar Harbor to connect with the other bus routes heading into the park. Other island activities are easily accessed via Rt. 3.


Within Acadia National Park, you can watch the tide at Thunder Hole, snack on popovers at Jordan Pond Tea House, or go horseback riding. Explore the park's 45-mile carriage road system on bike or horse-drawn carriage. Hike through forests and up mountains on 125 miles of trails. Kayak at Jordan Pond and Eagle Lake. Take a dip at Echo Lake or Sand Beach to refresh. Whatever you do, you’ll have stunning views of the mountains of Mount Desert Island and Frenchman Bay.



The house is fully equipped for your large traveling party, with flexible arrangements which sleep up to 11 people on three levels. The large living and dining area offers full view of the outdoors with large windows. Lower level sun room offers additional living space for games, puzzles, reading, etc. The open kitchen is fully stocked, from crock pot to lobster pot. The large deck is just off the kitchen, complete with outdoor seating and propane grill. Pack lighter by using the washer, dryer and detergent. Keep your bikes or other gear dry in the attached garage. The house has a large lawn, but is surrounded by trees for privacy. Feel free to use the puzzles, games, books, DVD player, cable TV, and WI-FI Internet after a full day enjoying the island and the park. For families with small children, we have a pack and play and high-chair available. There is plenty of parking on the long driveway.


A total of six bedrooms are on all three levels, so families traveling together can have separate areas if they wish. Main level has large bedroom with queen bed, and small bedroom with bunk beds. Bathroom with shower is also on this level. Upper level has a loft with twin bed which looks over the living area. Lower level has three bedrooms. A two-bedroom suite has one room with a queen bed and French doors which open into the sunroom; the other room has two twin beds. The third bedroom on this level has a queen bed. Lower level also has a full bath with bathtub and laundry room. There are several closets suitable for luggage storage as well.


We hope you enjoy Acadia National Park and Mount Desert Island as much as we do. We've been coming here since 2005 and still find new trails to hike, roads to bike, spots to nature-watch. We've rarely done anything twice, other than dine at our favorite Bar Harbor restaurants. Visitors are truly spoiled for choice when it comes to family friendly activities, and we hope that you find it as inspiring, relaxing, and refreshing as we do.

          Owner info

          Year Purchased: 2010

          About the owner: We have been traveling to Acadia since 2005, though Dan has been traveling there since boyhood. We enjoy hiking and biking. Since having our first child in 2010, we have enjoyed hiking Acadia with her, taking long walks on the carriage trails, and looking at nature through her eyes.

          Why the Owner Chose Mount Desert:
          We love the setting, so close to Bar Harbor and all its conveniences, but at the foot of Cadillac Mountain and surrounded by trees. The windows are very large, so the home is filled with light and you feel connected to nature inside and out. The open concept living/dining/kitchen area is great for large gatherings.

          The Unique Benefits at this House:
          The home is right next to Acadia National Park, so you will be very close to everything the park has to offer. The ocean is just a quick bike ride away, as is the Park Loop road and Bar Harbor. It's a very convenient location to take advantage of all park activities. Bar Harbor is a few minutes away, for dining, shopping, or getting picnic supplies. The Island Explorer bus goes right past the house, just flag it down for pick-up or drop-off.
