About the owner: I am 41 years old and I purchased Oliver Cottage in 2005. I lived in the home with my family for six years before purchasing another house in the same neighborhood in 2011. I furnished the cottage in that same year for the weekly rental season.
Why the Owner Chose Bar Harbor: I appreciate the location of the cottage and the quality of the neighborhood; its quiet, safe and still in-town within walking distance to everything. The house is very clean and well built, featuring oak floors throughout, leaded glass windows, and a new energy efficient Buderus heating system.
The Unique Benefits at this House: The Shore Path is just around the corner and the Sunday Farmers' Market is on the end of the next street. The entrance to Acadia National Park's 'Loop Road', including Sand Beach and Compass Harbor is a direct route from lower Main Street where the cottage is located (a couple miles).
