Bar Harbor farmhouse description

Complete with old wooden beams, fireplaces and brilliant sunrise and sunset views. It is a wonderful house for large families, groups of friends or anyone who simply likes lots of space, airy rooms, scrubbed pine floors and country living by the sea. Perfectly located at the end of a quiet private road, you can relax to your hearts content. Watch seagulls wheeling high overhead, inhale the wonderful mixed fragrance of pine needles and salty sea air, listen to bird songs or stroll down to the shore in Hulls Cove to look for sea glass and other treasures that the sea has left behind. Acadia National Park is just down the road. Hike or bike the scenic carriage roads and trails, climb a mountain, go sea kayaking or walk over to secluded Lake Wood for a swim.

May we also suggest taking a moment to look at our 6 bedroom Orchard House just down the lane.

It is property # 3752195 on Homeaway and VRBO
http://www.homeaway.com/vacation-rental/p3752195

This is our first summer to offer the Orchard House to guests. It began as a small photographers cottage down on the shore in Hulls Cove around the early 1900's. At a later date the cottage was moved up to the orchard. It escaped The Great Fire of Bar Harbor in 1947 but burned to the ground exactly 50 years later in 1997. We rebuilt the house, but a good deal bigger this time because our family was growing. Now the time has come for yet another change to this house's story. We are looking forward to welcoming guests to the Orchard House this summer and for them to enjoy the house and its surroundings and to become a part of its story too.

                      Hulls Cove is a quiet and beautiful little cove just 3 miles from downtown Bar Harbor.The sun rises over the water and the Porcupine islands, and each morning the sky and sea delight the eye. Some days the islands are draped in fog and the water looks like silver. Other days the water sparkles like diamonds and countless shades of blue. It is ever changing and always breathtaking. At the Hulls Cove General Store you can pick up coffee, a newspaper and grocery items or board the free Island Explorer shuttle bus. The Chart Room Resturant offers delicious dining right on the water or pop into Peppers for pizza and calzones.

                      Lake Wood is just up the road. It is part of Acadia and a great place to swim. Bullfrogs like it too!
