Owner info

Year Purchased: 1975

About the owner: Cabins are part of family property with adjacent year-round home. We are long time summer residents on Mount Desert Island.

Why the Owner Chose Bar Harbor:
Our family began to summer on MDI in the 1950s and the love of the island has remained through the generations.

The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
Rustic cabins set in cool, quiet forest with outstanding views of the ocean. Two cabins allow two separate parties or can be rented together for a larger group. From the cabin decks, you can watch eagles and osprey hunt for fish and fly to their nests nearby. Wonderful family destination.
