Property description

Music Hill was rebuilt with ingenuity and love in the 1950's. Updated in Spring 2012, it exudes vintage style from the original Geneva cabinets to the Danish modern dining set. The master bedroom has a cedar-lined closet, and the bright guest room overlooks the large kitchen garden. The historic barn on the hill behind the house is testament to the seven generations that have lived here in Otter Creek. The formal dining room has room to spread out maps and plan your activities, and the living room has a brand new sofa and love seat for the whole family to unwind after a busy day. You can walk to Otter Cove and the Park Loop Road, or cross the street to climb Cadillac Mountain. Freshly painted and updated for its first year on the rental market.

Location

The Village of Otter Creek is surrounded on all sides by Acadia National Park and ocean. The free Island Explorer passes right in front of the house, and trails to Cadillac Mountain and the bold coast at Otter Cliffs are a short walk. Bring your bikes and you can get on the miles of carriage roads that wend along the rocky coast in the park. Music Hill is five miles from downtown Bar Harbor, the island hotspot with plenty of restaurants, whale watching, bike and kayak rentals, museums, galleries and farmer's market. It is also just three miles to the sandy Seal Harbor Beach, and seven to the up-scale shops and galleries of Northeast Harbor, where you can take a ferry to the laid-back and fun to explore outlying islands.

Acadia National Park has hiking trails, a historic homestead, and ranger-led activities from tide pool exploration to birdwatching. There are gardens, boat trips, outdoor concerts, art exhibits, guided tours, and starry skies.
