                                      By day, Mt. Desert Island with its proximity to the incredible world-famous Acadia National Park, offers a range of activities for every age and inclination that includes hiking the trails, biking, boating, golfing, swimming at Sand Beach or at the many lakes, whale watching, deep sea fishing, and kayaking. Sail with a naturalist to an outlying island for a walking tour of flora, fauna and some fascinating history, meet with a park ranger for an astronomical look at the night sky, or awake before the crack of dawn, and from the pink granite of Cadillac Mountain be the first in the U.S. to watch the sunrise.

                                      You may choose to experience Mt. Desert Island by car (or from the window of the park's convenient, and ecologically mindful, shuttle buses) on the 19 mile loop road. Either way, you will want to stop and take photos beside a legend or a scenic overlook. From any perspective on land or sea, the majesty and the intimacy of this park will inspire you to stand in awe, as well as to enter into it.

                                      Bar Harbor, as well as the other towns on and near the island, has excellent restaurants, shops, concerts, museums and interesting seasonal events, such as music, art and film festivals. Mt. Desert Island and the area referred to as 'Downeast' – where the trees outnumber the people and the night sky is brighter with stars than city lights – has become famous for its clean air, clean water and its natural beauty. It has been preserved and protected by all those who have treasured this area for generations, both those who make their home here, and those who return year after year.

                                      Bar Harbor abounds in art galleries, antique stores and craft shows, as well as musical events and theatre presentations, all within easy proximity. The Jessup Memorial Library in Bar Harbor as well as the other libraries on this island features many well-known interesting speakers throughout the season. Whichever activities you choose, we will point you in the right direction to make your stay at the Bird's nest Cottage truly enjoyable and memorable.

                                       

                                      Owner info

                                      Year Purchased: 2009

                                      About the owner: The Chester family, five young children and their mom, came to Maine 40 years ago from suburban New Jersey and rented the house now known as the Shore Path Cottage for the summer. The mom, Roberta, was sufficiently smitten with the house and the view and the area and Acadia National Park and Maine folks to pack up the kids and move here permanently when the house came up for sale. Cold winters, and a new cultural experience notwithstanding (She often felt, literally, like a babe in the woods), there were never any regrets because it was simply so beautiful in every season. The kids grew up mastering winter and summer sports so that two of the daughters, Melinda and Lisabeth, are able to offer our guests the valuable, informed information from years of their experience which they need to make their stay most memorable and enjoyable. Four years ago, the garage that was built in 1880 came down and the Bird's Nest went up. Roberta, whose nickname is 'Bird' thought that would be a good name . Though it is available as a long terms rental, it is Bird's nest in December and January. We feel , and somewhat objectively, that our location on the ocean and on a quiet residential street in town is as good as it gets in Bar Harbor. in keeping with the tasteful quality of the decor of the main house, the Birds Net is furnished beautifully and lovingly. Designed by Roc Caivano, the area's premier architect, with the assistance of Lisabeth Chester Oxman, also an architect, you will enjoy the cathedral ceiling and the many windows. The Bird's Nest was originally our family residence and now we enjoy the pleasure of haring it with our guests. ,

                                      Why the Owner Chose Hulls Cove:
                                      The best location in Bar Harbor, beautiful accommodations, convenient, ocean access on property, quiet, private, parking, minutes by foot from restaurants, activities, and biking distance to the park. Also, owners who have lived here for forty years are on site as a great resource for things to do and places to go to best enjoy your stay.

                                      The Unique Benefits at this House:
                                      A walk down our beautiful lawn takes you to the historic Shore Path, which is a path along the shore which takes you into the town of Bar Harbor. We are also down a quiet street, minutes to the center of Bar Harbor with it's restaurants, shops, a movie theatre, bike rentals, just a few minutes walk away!
