Bar Harbor house description

Eagle Cliff is a beautiful historic home situated on a stunning oceanfront estate. One of the original rusticator “cottages” built before the turn of the century, guests at Eagle Cliff are surrounded by antiques, oriental rugs, and art from around the world with breathtaking ocean views from every room.

The large living room and formal dining room with ample seating, and comfortable kitchen equipped for entertaining, all over look Frenchman Bay and the Porcupine Islands. Four bedrooms and 3.5 bathrooms allow for privacy and comfort. There is a separate Guest House on the property that can also be rented allowing for additional occupancy and privacy.


Upstairs, the large oceanside master suite is complete with deluxe memory foam mattress, private dressing room, and private bathroom with a Jacuzzi bathtub. Another bedroom with a double bed has huge bay windows facing east allowing the occupants to watch the morning sunrise over Frenchman Bay. The third upstairs bedroom has two twins, and there is a full bathroom as well. Downstairs is a bedroom with a double bed and private bathroom. A powder room is located near the kitchen and living room.

The grounds of the Eagle Cliff estate are just as beautiful as the inside. A stone porch overlooks the ocean with outdoor seating and a gas grill- the perfect place to spend an afternoon reading or having a Barbeque dinner. An entry porch with outdoor seating, a gazebo with outdoor games, gardens and a large lawn await you.

A special property sure to please even the most discerning tastes with the perfect blend of quiet and accessibility, historic charm and modern comfort.

                      The location of this house is perfect. At the end of a small private road through Acadia National Park, Eagle Cliff is only one mile from Bar Harbor where you can access a free shuttle bus that travels around greater Mount Desert Island and through Acadia National Park. The main auto entrance to Acadia National Park is only two miles away where you can drive or bike the famous Park Loop Rd and all its attractions.

                      The Park’s newest trail, built in 2008, allows one to literally walk from the house into the 130-mile network of hiking trails, bike to the 45 miles of Carriage Roads, or simply stroll into town for an ice cream cone. Compass Cove, a little known parcel of Acadia National Park, is just a 5 min walk to a secluded and well-protected sand beach and tide pools. This area is a wonderful place to explore with kids, or have a quiet sun-drenched beach all to your self.

                      A special property sure to please even the most discerning tastes with the perfect blend of quiet and accessibility, historic charm and modern comfort.

                       

                      Manager info

                      Year Purchased: 1990

                      About: Adam and Jen have a deep love and understanding of the natural beauty surrounding the Acadia/Mount Desert Island area. Jen grew up summers on Long Pond and Adam on a 110-acre farm in Western Maine adjoining the Appalachian Trail. They met here in Bar Harbor working as sea kayak guides in the summer of 1993. Over the years, they have hiked, biked, paddled, and sailed every conceivable route on and around Mount Desert. Adam completed his goal of hiking every trail on the Island in the summer of 1994 and Jen authored The Sea Kayaker's Guide to Mount Desert Island published by Down East Books in 1997. Together they paddled the Maine Island Trail, a 175-mile 28-day kayaking trip from Portland to Machias, up the entire Maine coastline. In the summer of 2000, Jen and Adam started Mountain Sea Properties with a single house, Eagle Cliff, where they were married that same summer. The owner had approached them expressing her frustration renting the home through larger rental operations on the island. She complained that her house was one of hundreds represented so the service she received was minimal. She also stated that those who rented the house were not as well informed as they could be. The tenants were also one of hundreds and the service they received was minimal. Adam and Jen offered to represent the house committing to providing top quality service to both owners and tenants by representing a limited number of houses and providing personalized vacation services. Since then, Mountain Sea Properties has grown along with the Wales family. As year-round members of the Island’s community, Adam and Jen are dedicated to the vitality of the people of Mount Desert Island. Thus, each year they donate a portion of their proceeds to local organizations devoted to sustaining the beauty and well-being of the Mount Desert Island area.
