          About the owner: Born and raised in Bar Harbor, I currently live in New Jersey with my husband and two kids. We spend several weeks a year at the house, and enjoy beachcombing, hiking and biking in Acadia National Park.

          Why the Owner Chose Bar Harbor:
          This beautiful property has been in my family for generations. The house was custom-built in 1995.

          The Unique Benefits at this House:
          I love waking up in the morning and seeing the amazing water views from my bedroom. We love to take a picnic to the cove or walk to the Nature Conservancy preserve next door. It is really our little paradise.
