Harbor Reach Farm is a 5 acre property of wooded waterfront. Andrew's Mom owns a similar vacant 5 acre wooded lot to the North. To our South is a 2/3 acre vacant lot that directly abuts hundreds of acres of Acadia National Park land and the famous Bass Harbor Head Lighthouse. Hence Harbor Reach Farm is very quiet, secluded and serene. Some guests rarely leave the property for their entire stay. They prefer relaxing on the beach, reading a book, watching boats and wildlife glide by, enjoying magnificent sunsets, etc.

The Western side of Mount Desert is very accurately referred to as 'The Quietside.' When the First Family visited MDI two summers ago, the Obamas spent part of their visit here, touring the Lighthouse at the end of our road, hiking the nearby Ship Harbor trail and dining at a waterfront restaurant in neighboring Southwest Harbor. Nearby are the Wonderland ocean trail and Seawall picnic area, all part of Acadia National Park.

Bass Harbor has 3 restaurants with waterviews. Thurston's lobster pound on the Bernard side of Bass Harbor is a wholesale lobster dock that buys daily from local lobstermen. The Swan's Island Ferry and Little Island nature tourboat are a few miles away.

Southwest Harbor is about a 10 minute drive, where one can find more waterfront restaurants and lobster docks. The Library is well stocked. There is a medium size grocery store, as well as a gourmet food store, drug store and two Banks. Fishing, sailing, boat and kayak rentals are available. A mailboat takes passengers out to the Cranberry Isles several times a day.

The picturesque Causeway Club 9 hole golf club welcomes all golfers.

Bar Harbor and the major sections of Acadia National Park are about a 30 minute drive. Most of the Park can be visited via the free Island Explorer bus system. There is a bus stop close to Harbor Reach Farm. Acadia National Park is the second most visited National Park in the U.S. The website is www.nps.gov/acad/index.htm

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1994

About the owner: Andrew retired from the Navy in 1994, and we moved back to Maine to enjoy a quiet lifestyle. We designed and built our dream house, including the 'Mother-in-law' apartment for Dianne's Mom. (Hence a lot of privacy was designed in). Andrew is a 747 Captain flying freight literally all over the world. Dianne is a retired nurse and avid gardener.

Why the Owner Chose Bass Harbor:
Mount Desert Island has been a destination summer resort for centuries due to it's majestic natural beauty. Acadia National Park is the second most visited Park in the U.S.

The Unique Benefits at this Apartment:
Quiet, vewy, vewy quiet! Fantastic sunsets!!! The famous Bass Harbor Head Lighthouse is our only neighbor to the south. Several picturesque ocean trails of Acadia National Park are within walking distance. The majority of ANP is about a 25 minute drive.
