Bar Harbor cottage description

Anchorhold, a 5000+ sq. ft. 'cottage' in a national historic district, was built in 1885 and lovingly restored over the last five years. Perfect for family reunions, birthdays and anniversaries, the house sleeps 13 and has 7 bedrooms, 4 of which have private bathrooms. This house has central air on the main floor and includes a gourmet eat-in kitchen with a large farm table that seats 8+ and a formal dining room that seats 10. A dining deck lies just outside the kitchen through the french doors. The house has a large living room and a family room (Oak Room), with a natural fireplace, overlooking Frenchman Bay. Outside the living room is a covered veranda overlooking the water and the Porcupine Islands. The main floor has a half bath off of the foyer. The main floor also has a laundry/mud room off of the kitchen.

Bedrooms
The main-floor master bedroom suite (Cook's Quarters), with central air, has a king-size bed. The bathroom includes the original pedestal tub and separate step-in shower with handrails and bench.

The remaining six bedrooms are located on the second floor. The Blue Room has one low-profile twin bed and shares a hall shower-bathroom with the Chapel Room. The Chapel Room has two beds and walk-in closet. It overlooks the stone walled lawn and gardens. The Morgan Room has two twin beds (convertible to king upon request), a private balcony, and en-suite bathroom with tub/shower combination. The Master Bedroom (Mrs. Randolph's Room) with private balcony on Frenchman Bay has a king-size bed and en-suite bathroom with pedestal sink, original tub, separate shower, toilet and bidet. The Dorr Room has a king-size bed, en suite bath w/step-in shower and handrails, plus bench, and private covered porch overlooking the water. The Whitney Room has a 4 poster king-size bed with Bay view. The bathroom across the hall has a claw foot tub and separate shower. All bedrooms upstairs have individual, remote control, A/C wall units and additional fans.

The second floor also has a laundry room.

Courtyard garden has a charcoal bar-b-que.

Grotto steps lead down to the water that has beach exposed at low tide. Great for shelling and finding beach glass. Also hike to Bar Island.

              The historical seven bedroom 'cottage' was built in 1885 and has been lovingly restored over the last five years. Bar Harbor sits at the entrance to Acadia National Park. Hiking trails, carriage rides, stargazing, whale watching, sunrise on Cadillac Mountain are just a few of the attractions the park offers. The center of town is a short walk away and full of first class restaurants and shopping.
