Property description

The Old School House is a large historic building in the quaint village of Bernard. We have renovated the upstairs into a 3 bedroom , 2 bath rental with a large living room, peeks at the bay and great views of the western mountain range. A very quiet location with several restaurants, galleries and local shops within a 5 minute ride. There are two restaurants within 5 minutes walking/biking distance. We own a private marina on the harbor, a 5 minute walk away, where you will have access to our kayaks, a row boat and the marina facilities like our grills and picnic tables on the exspansive dock. It's an easy paddle from our marina up into Bass Harbor Marsh, which is teaming with birds, beavers and other aquatic life. For the more experienced paddlers, traveling out of the harbor, one can see the Bass Harbor Lighthouse, visit on shore restaurants, and outer islands.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2013

About the owner: I was born and raised in town. We own the local boat yard and marina and bought this incredible property this spring.

Why the Owner Chose Bass Harbor:
This historic property was the local school that my mother attended. It is a well known landmark and when it came on the market we were ready to turn it into a fantastic living space.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
The School House is a beloved historic structure that has retained the charm of an antique home with dramatic angles, knotty pine walls and floors, yet embellished with modern furnishings and appliances designed for comfort and relaxation. The property lends itself well to families or groups of couples, as there is plenty of space to either congregate or settle in with a good book. The school house is a very unique space, with great views and flooded with sunlight. The master suite is large and private with it's own deck and private bath. Access to the only private marina on the quiet side of the island is a big bonus . A short stroll brings you to our private marina, an excellent location for mackeral fishing off the dock, kayaking, picnicking on our expansive deck with pristine views of our harbor. We have 4 kayaks and a row boat for exploring the harbor and the inner islands and the creek/marh at the head of the harbor that goes for miles into the heart of Acadia National Park. A great place to relax on the deck and docks and watch the second largest lobster fleet in Maine come and go . The inner island 500 feet from the dock is home to Thelma and Ernest our resident bald eagles. Their nest is in plain view of the deck and their fishing activities are mesmerising.
