Bar Harbor house description
YOU WILL HAVE THE BEST VIEW IN ALL OF MAINE OF THE
OCEAN AND ACADIA NATIONAL PARK!!! (For about the
price of 2 little stuffy hotel rooms in Bar Harbor!!!!!!!!!!) Will sleep
8-9 comfortably--- 12 with additional bedding. The 2000' house is designed for efficiency with No fossil fuels!!!
Central a/c and passive solar highlight the
efficiency and cleanliness of the home. Built recently, so you
are SAFE from lead paint, asbestos, and mold problems in some
older homes. Our home is kept to a high anti-allergenic standard for our guests! We charge no more for this! We have a forced air heat pump
air circulation system with filtration--- that's why there are no
stagnant air areas or damp spots in the home! Plus we have
central a/c even though we are on the Windward side of the
island with cool breezes. The town of Bar Harbor can be
very hot sometimes because it faces North and is blocked
from cool ocean breezes-- so always stay at least one mile
south of the central business district on the ocean or the
'heights' as the locals call them. That's why eagles live in our trees!!!! Plus the Windward side of MDI is the East side
of MDI south of Bar Harbor where we are the center of
'Millionaires Row' of the Gilded Age of Bar Harbor.
This is considered to be the most valuable parcel of two
acres on the entire Maine coast. It's rock face was painted
by theHudson River School painters more than any landmark on MDI.
With three full baths and four bedrooms the home will
handle 9 easily. A full kitchen attached to the Great Room will
let the chef (usually the lady of the house) know that she is not
being shut off in some remote kitchen but is enjoying actively
the spectacular views of the Great Room with her guests and
family-- and interacting with them as well.
Look down on the QM2 and huge ocean-going yachts
entering and leaving Bar Harbor. See eagles sitting in the
trees and their nests right near the house. See whales and
seals in front of the house!
Since we are on the 'windward side' of MDI our breezes
come from the ocean-- free of pollen and insects!!!
You will not want to leave this paradise, so take tons of
photos for great memories AND COME BACK SOON!!!!!
Note: you are receiving a special rate per week
which is a special reduction off the normal rate of $8300 per
week due to special contribution of the Owners in their efforts
help the environment and its wildlife.
NEW LIsting!!!! It was noted in a magazine that this site
is one of the few places on MDI where you can look out to sea
and see almost nothing 'man made.' Due to the protection
of Acadia National Park, the Ocean and the Porcupine Islands
appear almost exactly as they did when the Hudson River
School painters painted them in the mid 1800s. WE DO
NOT SHOW BOOKING DATES ON ANY PUBLIC SITE.
SEND INQUIRY FOR YOUR DATES OF INTEREST.
Note; Local agents may pretend to rent our property--
we do not rent through local agents since their added
commission raises our rental prices for our customers.

Year Purchased: 2002
About: Note: Property is already booked for most of the summer. Inquire about dates you are interested in. We do not show our booking dates openly for security of the guests. Special VIP security measures are offered at special rate-- call for details. Additional Note: There has been some interest in purchasing the property. The house can be added onto or a huge mansion can be built like the Gilded Age 'cottages' of 1890s. There is no limit on size. Since it is on the edge of Bar Harbor sewer and water are town available. Only one of few cottages that is free of any 'bed and breakfast' restriction for future development. The deed allows for a two lane road directly to the lot. Two in depth appraisals have been done on the property. Built on solid granite we do not have the problem of the Atlantic beaches 'of sand' washing away along the lower U.S. coast and the rising ocean level. We are high above the ocean level!!!! WE DO NOT RENT VIA LOCAL AGENTS IN BH. The Owners....... are direct descendants of William White of the Mayflower who had the first baby, Peregrine White, born in the Colony. Their uncle is Capt. Phineas Stearn, the organizer of the Boston Tea Party and whose greek revival house they saved in Watertown, Mass. from the wrecking ball 'as a great historic place in America.' The President of Harvard University lives in their aunt's house, Elmwood, at Harvard. Maria White married James Russell Lowell, the poet and Elmwood was their home in Cambridge. All the great poets of the day would gather at 'White's Hill' (Lowell, Longfellow, etc.) to discuss poetry and the great causes of the day. Maria White (had her mother's name Anna Maria Howard White) and was considered the prettiest girl in New England, hence, James Russell Lowell fell for her immediately at 'White's Hill.' Maria White was a famous poet on her own! Amy Lowell said many years later-- she preferred Maria's poetry!
Why Bar Harbor:
Most spectacular view of the ocean on the Maine coast. The crown jewel of the Dorr family estate who established Acadia National Park. Center and highest location in 'Millionaires Row' of the Gilded Age of Bar Harbor c. 1885-1910. Neighbors were George W. Vanderbilt to the left and Pulitzer to the right. Vanderbilt owned 'Biltmore in N.C.' Even Evelyn Walsh McLean ( owner of the Hope Diamond) lived in BH in the Briars-- where Nelson Rockefeller was later born. The Biddles of Philadelphia were all over BH and the Dorances of Campbell Soup fame owned the largest mansion on the island, Kenarden Lodge in BH (the point north of our estate)-- they were from Philadephia, and Wayne, Pa. The breezes on the 'windward side' come off the ocean, so they are cool and free of pollens and insects!!!! The town of Bar Harbor is NOT on the windward side-- it faces North and can be quite warm in the summer without the ocean breezes--- most of the homes are older as well and not built to the 'green standard.' Also many older homes also use fossil fuels which may cause allergy problems along with their poss lead paint and asbestos insulation throughout and mold. Please note that we do not allow pets or smoking-- since some of our guests may have allergy problems. NOTE: Several rogue local agent sites pretend to rent our house-- they do NOT. Local agents would only increase our rates for our special customers of Homeaway.
