Bar Harbor cottage description

'Beau Se Jour' cottage was designed to be reminiscent of the shingle cottages which have always been unique to Maine's seacoast.
Sunfilled rooms are tastefully decorated with vintage wicker, hooked rugs, and nautical accessories. Birch bark railings, a gas stone fireplace, and a moose-horn chandelier give this cottage a distinctive look and feel of an earlier time.
Enjoy relaxing on the large eat-in screened porch with panoramic ocean and mountain views.
This beautiful setting is perched on Frenchman Bay, and has breathtaking views of Cadillac Mountain and Acadia National Park.
A rare opportunity to enjoy a private beach (no public access) for swimming, clam digging, and long walks along the endless shore.
