Sand Beach, Bar Harbor

Acadia National Park with its spectacular scenery and extensive system of trails for hiking and carriage roads for nature walks, biking, or horse-drawn carriages is a must. Be sure to check out the summit of Cadillac mountain, and Jordan Pond house with its blueberry popovers. Drive the Park loop road or walk the Shore Path past Sand Beach, Thunder Hole, and Otter Cliffs for unforgettable images that dance in your heart. Canoe in Long Pond, or sea kayak to the Porcupine Islands in Frenchman's Bay. Take the kids to pristine Sand Beach or go for a swim at Echo lake. Shop and dine out in Bar Harbor or visit other cute shops in Northeast or Southwest Harbors. In the latter location be sure to pick up a fresh pita, smoothy or home-baked dessert at Eat-A-Pita. Take a Nature cruise or whale watch out of Bar Harbor or Southwest Harbor and see puffins, eagles, seals, whales, and more. And of course no visit to the Maine shore is complete without that lobster. We have described these activities and more in our 'Must-do' notebook in our living room.

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2014

About the owner: Sandra and Don have raised 4 children and have 2 granddaughters. Sandra is a minister with the United Church of Christ in New Haven, and Don is a professor at Wesleyan University. Don discovered Acadia and the island at age 16 as an National Science Foundation student at Jackson Laboratory in Bar Harbor, and we have been coming back ever since with children and now grandchildren in tow. One of our passions is hiking throughout the world. Acadia with its superb beauty and vast set of trails offers unparalleled hiking opportunities.

Why the Owner Chose Bar Harbor:
Everyone should have a special place in this world: a wellspring to draw strength from, and which rejuvenates them. Acadia National Park and Mount Desert Island is that place for us, and we want you to see and experience it first hand.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Moving beyond the limitations of Acadia cottages, we decided to buy a larger modern, private house and equip it with all the comforts and conveniences of home to provide a superior vacation experience for the whole family. The property is also ideally located: 2 miles from the Hull’s cove (main entrance) to Acadia National Park and 4 miles from downtown Bar Harbor. You can walk 5 minutes down our quiet road to Frenchman’s Bay or pick up the Island Explorer (free) bus and go anywhere on the Island without driving. The latter option is great for those long one-way hikes or bike rides across the island.
