Hulls Cove cottage description

The Briars is located on the south entrance of the famous Shore Path walk along Frenchman Bay, overlooking Bald Porcupine island and the breakwater (also visible is Egg Rock Lighthouse and Schoodic Peninsula). An amazing history, including names like Sears, Rockefeller and McLean (owner of the Hope Diamond). The servants quarters, which is now The Briars Cottage, is one of the original buildings from 1881. It was designed by the famous shingle-style architect William Ralph Emerson, a relative of Ralph Waldo Emerson. This cozy cottage provides comfortable accommodations for your family of six, in one of the most desirable locations in Bar Harbor.

The 3 bedroom cottage features 2 bedrooms and a full bath on the first/lower level: one king bedroom and a queen bedroom. The upper level, which enjoys spectacular ocean views from the living room, features a bedroom with two twins, a half bathroom, living room, dining area and small kitchen (with breakfast nook). (Note: due to its steep staircase, this home may not be suitable for those with very small children or who have difficulty ascending stairs).

The 2.5-acre grounds feature some old stone fixtures that harken back to its history, and a fragrant garden. There is a large, spacious yard, so you might want to bring your badminton gear! A private pathway leads directly to the Shore Path, where you can access the water or walk to the town pier.

Very private, amazing location with outstanding ocean views, shore access, and within walking distance to all of the in-town activities of Bar Harbor. It's just minutes from Acadia National Park, where you'll enjoy hiking, biking, walking, beaching and all the wonders of our spectacular national park!

Linens & Towels Provided.

This cottage is a Sunday to Sunday rental.

Note, cottage accommodates 5 guests only. Owner will not permit larger parties or events.

Sorry, pets are not permitted.
