Property description

A bright, airy, spacious house perfect for families and friends, set in an old orchard on a quiet private lane close to the seashore in quiet and beautiful little Hulls Cove, just 3 miles from Downtown Bar Harbor.

One and a half peaceful acres graced by historic apple trees, fragrant white pines and crisp salt air. Welcome the day’s sunrises from all the upstairs bedroom windows or with breakfast on the big grand piano shaped deck. Stroll down to the shore and discover bleached mussel shells, perfect little ringed rocks a seagull feather, a bright gem of sea glass.

Neighboring Acadia National Park’s scenic carriage roads are perfect for walking biking and horseback riding, its breathtaking mountain trails for energetic hikes and its lovely lakes for swimming and canoeing. Busy downtown Bar Harbor shops and restaurants are only a few minutes drive away. The free Island Explorer Shuttle bus stops in Hulls Cove and will take you into town and all over the island.

Situated in historic Hulls Cove; a quiet and beautiful little cove just 3 miles from downtown Bar Harbor where 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 with countless shades of blue. It is ever changing and always breathtaking.

The Orchard House began as a small photographers cottage down on the shore in Hulls Cove some time 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 look forward to welcoming guests to the Ochard House and for them to enjoy the house and its surroundings and to become part of its story too.

Car: Recommended

The Orchard House is located in Hulls Cove, it is quiet and secluded yet just 3 miles from Downtown Bar Harbor and a couple of minutes from Acadia National park. 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!
