              All of Acadia National Park is at your doorstep. Within walking distance of the house are 2 little known trails owned by the town of Bar Harbor and Friends of Acadia Land Trust that are excellent for hiking, trail running and dog walking (leashes optional for well behaved dogs). The house is well equipped for a family and is equidistant to all major towns on the island

              Year Purchased: 1995

              About: We raised our 2 college age kids in this home and have now relocated to care for an aging family member. We love our home and our community and are excited to share our serene Bar Harbor oasis, far from the cruise ship crowds and hotel and B & B traffic but still in close proximity to all the action Mount Desert Island provides.

              Why Bar Harbor:
              Heartwood Home was designed, built and furnished by us to hold our family close. The great room allows the cook to be with family members and guests while they're watching TV, doing puzzles and games at the large dining table or listening to music. The surrounding neighborhood is conducive to walks on a low traffic road, safe for children and pets. There are bike riding and hiking areas for the whole family, and lots of play space for children.

              The Unique Benefits at this House:
              The unique benefits of staying at Heartwood Home are total comfort without the summer crowds of an in-town location. We are located in the center of Mount Desert Island giving occupants the convenience of an easy commute to all the towns, restaurants and sites on the island.
