Bar Harbor house description

Ledgelawn Cottage, a nineteenth century beauty on Bar Harbor's historic Ledgelawn Avenue, is steps from all the attractions of downtown and five minutes from Acadia National Park. Stroll to the village green, fine restaurants and quaint specialty shops, the Abbe Museum, Shore Path, free Island Explorer bus, tennis courts, playground and wading pool. Just a mile to Acadia National Park and the famed Kebo Valley Golf Course. We comfortably accommodate up to eight guests in this spacious family home, decorated with a blend of new and antique furnishings. Ledgelawn Cottage offers guests 3,000 square feet of living space on two floors.
Enter the house through the large enclosed front porch with ample seating, the perfect spot to relax with your morning coffee and plan the day's adventures. Once inside the central entrance hall, you will see the spacious living room to your left, with comfortable seating and large flat screen HDTV, home theater speakers, and DVD player. To your right is the reading room, well stocked with travel guides and maps, a table and chairs for studying the many brochures and area menus, shelves of books for children and adults, and a recliner for dozing or reading a good book. Old-fashioned pocket doors lead from the reading room into the sun-filled dining room, with lots of room for family meals or playing board games from the corner china cabinet.
Crossing the hall past the powder room, you will find yourself in a large, fully stocked kitchen blending antique charm with modern amenities. Every effort ha been made to ensure that guests have all they need to prepare meals for both indoor and outdoor dining.
Just past the kitchen is a sunny hallway leading to the laundry and shower rooms. A washer and dryer, drying rack, laundry baskets and detergent, ironing board and iron are provided. The separate shower room provides guests with a convenient place to wash up upon returning from hiking or biking in Acadia. Shelves hold fluffy towels, and a hairdryer and variety of soaps are provided.
Four steps down from the rear hallway is the charming patio room. Surrounded by antique glass windows and featuring a brick floor, this large space has comfortable outdoor furniture for relaxing, as well as a table with wooden dining chairs and a cooling ceiling paddle fan. Just outside the back door is the gas grill, and a picnic table is placed in the shade across the big fenced backyard.
The second floor has four comfortable bedrooms with a range of bed sizes. The master bedroom has a king-sized bed with memory foam mattress. There is a room with a queen-sized bed, a room with a double brass four-poster, and a room with two twin beds. A pack-and-play and a wooden toddler bed are available upon request.
While we hope our visitors come to Ledgelawn Cottage to relax, we also provide a second-floor office equipped with computer, multi-function printer, and high speed internet Wi-Fi which is available throughout the house.
A skylit full bath with shower tub, towels, hairdryer and soaps completes the second floor.
